The scale gods are fickle assholes, as anyone knows who worships at their alter on a regular basis. They are notoriously capricious and oftentimes hateful. But. Once and a while, the scale gods get up on the right side of the bed and smile down upon us and reward our hard work. Ahhh glorious.
This week, I have been smiled upon.
I was up earlier in the week and thought my BBQ eating and drinking and no working out all weekend would be my downfall. I caught a glimmer of hope yesterday when I weighed in and saw a loss. Ahhh could it be? Would it last?
Yes, yes it did. I weigh 167.6.
It's only a little over a pound, but I will take it! Any little bit helps! I think doing the Shred and running is really a good thing here. I didn't do two workouts yesterday, but I did Shred and go for a 1/2 hr walk with hubby. I was just wiped in the eve and even fell asleep on the couch for like an hour. I didn't want to push myself and get all burned out from exercise. So maybe the double will be every other day. It would be quite stellar to be under 165 by the time I hit Mexico on the 7th.
Ok, so that leaves me with mentioning this cool giveaway that the hilarious Candice at Life According to Candice is doing. She's giving away this new Maybelline lip stain that apparently rocks her universe. I luuurve lip stain as an alternative to lipstick, so I am hoping to get lucky on this one! Knowing my usual luck, this shit isn't even available in Canada yet. Always the way with cool new products.
I am going to go high five myself over the loss, and then SHRED!
