Post-Holiday Weigh in Monday

It's been quite a busy couple days and today is no exception. I have laundry up to my eyeballs, grocery shopping, going to Jenny Craig, getting things organized for work tomorrow (I don't want to go back, waa!). And this is while dealing with some wicked jet lag...last night I went to bed around 9 and I didn't move until 9am this morning. Which was an annoyance because I listened to my messages and the Jenny Craig appointment I had made for 10:45am magically changed itself to 9am. I called my consultant and was like "Sorry, I thought I had a later appointment" and she said she thought she moved me...but in any case, they slipped me in at 10:15am.

I ate chinese food last night for dinner...which was super salty. And my legs are still swollen from travelling...but you know what?


Starting Weight: 267.4
Weigh In: 266.2 (-1.2lbs)
Target Weight: 240
Pounds Until Goal: 26.2

Holy moley! I mean, I know I got a ton of exercise in Italy...but wow, over a pound lost with all the travelling AND a splurge dinner last night? I'm a happy woman! I am back on my Jenny Craig plan and feeling awesome. I really enjoyed my Breakfast Scramble for breakfast. One thing about Italy is that they DO NOT eat breakfast. You can't get an egg or whatever...they eat brioche and some kind of coffee. I totally missed my breakfasts. And then they eat lunch at like 2pm. That's a long time for me to go...I'm sooo happy that I can eat at regular intervals. It makes me feel better, a TON better.

I'm right in the 260s now and that makes me happy! I'm heading in the right direction and feeling great! So it's time to set some goals for the week!!!

Also, I have a gigantic bloody blister on my foot...it started in Italy and now it's horrible looking and very painful. It's kind of hard for me to walk on it without really feeling it. Therefore exercise is going to be a little hard. I need to take it easy and let this thing heal...


1) Use moisturizer every day - my legs, hands and lips are chapped I think because of the weather and he cold, plus different water. They need some  TLC!

2)  Go to bed by 10pm every night - I could use the extra sleep!

3) Catch up on the TV that I missed while in Italy - Got a few shows to watch, woohoo!


Due to bloody blister at the bottom of my food, I'm going to set some very small exercise goals.

1) Bike 2x this week

2) Walk every day


1) As always, track on Sparkpeople. Drink water!

2) Eat 5 servings of fruit/veggies per day

3) Try one new recipe and post it on my blog!

Sorry this is so general, I still feel like my head is spinning off. I need to rest and relax...wish I had the time!
