Last night I was so grateful for the night to myself. It ended up being only a couple of hours after I worked out, got a bath, got the mail, it was 9:00 and I really only had an hour to myself. But I did do the following things...
I worked out better, because I was able to push myself more, and make stupid grunting noises and not feel stupid. I did a lot more butt work, because seriously, who wants to be on all-fours in front of their brother? I took off my clothes when I was done working out, and announced to the pets that I was walking around naked. All the while giggling. I got a bath, with the door open, so I could have the a/c cool me off, and I could listen to the TV. This is my most favorite single-living thing to do. Besides, walking around naked.
I got my clothes on, and walked the dog to get the mail. I was super excited to find my new Fitness magazine (thanks to Kat's 2-for-1 subscription!) in my box! I ran upstairs, turned off the TV and layed on my couch in the peace and quiet, and read my magazine. Cover to cover. Did I mention I had quiet time. With no TV? Yea. I did. I found all sorts of yummy recipes, and tips.
After this, I went down to weigh myself. I thought, it's been two weeks, and I really honestly thought I probably put on a couple pounds. Guess what? I didn't. I lost 3 more lbs! I'm up to 27 lbs lost! Almost 30!! My first goal I set is 35lbs. I am setting this as my goal for vacation. I can do that in two weeks if I change up some workouts. It's only 8lbs.. No problem! I've never stuck it thru the rough patches before , I'm proud of myself! I didn't give up! I've had weeks of not losing anything, gaining, and hating working out to the point I would cuss up a storm at the thought of it. It really does all pass if you keep up with it. It's not a lie.
I was really tempted to weigh myself this morning, because I probably weigh a pound less in the morning. But, I didn't! I figured, it'll be that much of a suprise the next time I weigh in!
After this excitement, I ran up and down my stairs 20 times, for more exercise, chanting, I lost 27 pounds! I lost 27 pounds! The cats all ran to hide from me. I told them, I lost more than their combined total weight! Ideally, I'd like to lose 50 more. Which maybe will be easier. It really seems like I lost nothin for months, and now, it's all happening.
I watched Anchorwoman, and just started the Sweet 16 food challenge, and here comes the brother. pfffft. The good news is he goes back on Friday. I am off tomorrow night. And, I don't want to have to haul his freaking ass around! I seriously doubt he's making any progress at his house either. He said his leg didn't bother him but he had a hard time breathing in the heat. Well, I said, you've laid around for 3 months, it'll get easier.
Speaking of work. My boss pulled me into an office yesterday. She asked if I'd posted for the executive secretary position in my department. I said no. I havn't been here a year and I didn't know if I'd like it. She said the only way to know is to post and interview for it. I said yea...then she said that it's along the lines of her knowing my capeabilities, and wanting me to advance. It pays more, just slightly more than I made at my last job I was just complaining about. It's a bigger discount, wink wink...I just don't love the guys I'd work for. Or the manager. Same department, but different. Me hate-um big change. Wish me luck.
