Weekend Update

Hi all!

I thought I'd check in on this lovely, brisk Saturday to tell you about my week. I've been right on with my goals...except for drinking water. I've been getting eight glasses of water per day CONSISTETLY but what happens is when I start going over that...that's when the peeing starts. This may not be a problem if I worked in an office or if I had a place I could easily go to the bathroom. However I am on the road all day seeing patients. It's not always appropriate for me to ask a patient if I can use their bathroom (and some of their houses are NASTY let me tell you!) and I don't have the time to go stop somewhere to go. Therefore I end up holding it until I'm ready to burst...which is uncomfortable. At eight glasses of water I can manage everything and I feel hydrated without feeling like I'm going to float away...sorry if its TMI!

I have been exercising a lot. Lately I've been starting to jog...which I'm kind of proud of. Prior to starting my weight loss journey even walking short distances I got winded. I hated running and I thought it was horrible. But now that I'm losing weight and doing more activity...maybe I judged it too harshly. Ultimately my goal is to participate in a triathalon and a 5K. I am not currently training at this time but it's there in my goals...I want to kick butt!  You can find my goals here in my 30 before 30 list! So far, I have only completed #6 which is LEARN TO GRILL! I am pretty good at it, I'll tell you! There were a lot of grilled veggie and chicken salads in a hot sauce dressing that were very delicious over the summer. That reminds me to buy stock in hot sauce...

I'm slowly but surely working on Goal #1 right now which is to fit into normal sized clothes. I went to Old Navy and I was buying some transition clothes and I found that I am fitting into large shirts rather than XL or XXL. So I'm getting there...I'm working toward becoming a success story!

So I feel very motivated. I've been doing really great with eating. I had a few nights of eating the Easy Cheesy Broccoli Cheddar Soup from Dashing Dash. I had to tinker the recipe because I forgot some ingredients...oops. But it was amazing. And I ate it with lighter version of a grilled cheese! Light rye bread, fat free american cheese singles and I sprayed the bread with I Can't Believe It's Not Butter spray instead of using real butter! SO GOOD. The soup ended up being 100 calories for a cup, so I added a bit of shredded parmesean to it, which was delicious. I also put in some hot sauce and lots of black pepper. YUM! The leftovers are in the freezer now, I'm just waiting for the right time to take them out!!

It's a quiet weekend, getting laundry done and cleaning up the house. I'm also planning on cleaning out my drawers and organizing. I hope that your weekend is going as splendidly as mine!
