uneventful 99

ooooo post number 99 today. don't expect an epic 100th its going to be weigh in....

It's just gone 8.30am, already up, showered and breakfast. Early for me... I don't surface til 9 usually and I think that's frickin' early. But our dog has a water infection, bless her, and needs to be let outside every 10 minutes so I got like 4 hours sleep. It's pissing it down constantly here so every time she comes back she has to be towel dried and apparently *I* am the only one who can hear her crying to get out... which is funny because I sleep right next to my sister and I know she hears... *rant over*

It does not feel like July. Storms again last night and torrential downpours are due all weekend so it looks like the workouts are going to be wii orientated. (I really hate my local gym now. Manchester's gym is tooooooo awesome). I was talking to fellow blogger big_mummy and said if I don't lose this week after these last two awesome weeks of being super on it I am going to chop off my leg. I figure I lose a lot of weight right there and then the hopping will increase it further.... I AM SERIOUS.

Besides not really doing much since I got back from Manchester I just feel like I am waiting for weigh in. My mind is constantly thinking have I? I've worked hard I should lose but I bet I won't. Can't wait til I just know. Visually the belly is changing a lot but I am not feeling a loss. Maybe (big_mummy suggested) it is because I am no longer checking everyday on the scales so waiting longer for progress feels no progress.

Also I would like to do a shout out... check out this amazing lady if you don't already. I am so frickin' happy (super jealous of) for her this week. She inspires me a lot and I love reading what shes got to say. LEARNING TO BE LESS.

(small note: some people asked about Manchester. I live there while I study at uni but have come home for the summer to Durham to save money while my flatmate comes back from her round the world trip. Manchester = big awesome city Durham = tiny sleepy villages)

Feckin' so hacked off at the weather - seriously, how much MORE rain can we have??

And, I would hold back on the chain saw just yet, your weight loss will no doubt show this week the way you have been going lately. (Unless, of course, you are one of these sleep-eating-without-knowing-it sort of people)

Keep up the good work!

Don't remind me about the weather! I keep looking out wondering when i can go for a walk. I may venture out in it without a coat looking like a looney...

WE put so much anxiety into those numbers on the scales. Your stomach is looking better so you have success already!

Where would you get a chain saw from?

Ms. Sheep...STOP WORRYING!! I find that's easier to do when I focus on the things I can do that I couldn't do before.

It's a number!!!! Now, if I can just take my own advice. And if you find me freaking out over a weigh in you have my permission to bitch slap me! lol

Thank You

Its hard not to over-think it. Keep doing the right thing with food and workouts and it will show on the scales. Just the fact that you see some physical changes (even if they seem wonky!) means YOUR BODY IS CHANGING!!! Back before you started this journey would you ever think you couldve woken up, looked in a mirror and noticed your stomach looking different?'re doing some major work here girl and it WILL pay off!
Just keep doin the right thing!

Ugh, we had a month of rain in June here in New Jersey and it was so depressing!
Well, just as the rain will go away eventually, so the scale will also move in the right direction! Give it time, stay on course - it will happen.

I am crossing my fingers for your WI- hopefully you will not have to lose a limb! lol :)

Kate said...

I hope you have a good weigh-in!

I understand that anxious feeling without the scale--I packed mine up (because I'm moving) so I won't be able to weigh-in tomorrow; that somehow makes me feel like I've gained weight. Lame, I know.

The weather has been shitty so far this year here too! Where is summer dammit!?!

Good luck with WI chicky! I'm sure you'll ace it =)

We had a wicked storm last night, I wish we'd been able to go out and check out the reported funnel clouds but alas I had to be up early this morning.

I'm contemplating the hacksaw as well. However my hubby has a chop saw so if I cut off anything it might caughterize on its own...huh. Now there's a thought.

Sorry to hear the weather hasn't been the best.

Please don't cut off your leg. Then you won't be able to do c25k with us! At least not right now, but eventually with a prosthesis.

Have to agree on Learning to be Less. Fantastic blog!
