What a nightmare of a week. I found out about the job I interviewed for at work. I didn't get it. So, I am going to be unemployed starting July 1. I'm really upset over this and having a hard time with it. I had a GREAT review and I have been working in the field for three years with an additional 6 years experience in non-profit fundraising and I didn't get the job. And to top it all off, if I want to be paid through the end of the month, I have to keep coming in. Ugh.
So, Thursday and Friday took a hit eating/exercise wise. I got about 1/2 my water in Thursday, under in points, and no exercise. Friday, hardly had anything to drink all day, no exercise, and I think on target with points. So, I didn't know what to expect when I went to weigh-in this morning. Did those two days mess up all the hard work of the previous four days? So, I headed in to see what the damage was. I was down 3.2 pounds! Yea me! And it got me to 20.4 pounds down total. Thrilled with that. Three weeks ago I wanted to be down 20 pounds by the first weekend of June, but with the gain last week, I didn't think I could do it. So excited my hard work this week paid off. :-) So, now I have 10.8 pounds to go before the end of July. It's possible. Down to the home stretch. I need to take lessons from this week and continue them into next. I can't imagine I would have another 3.2 pound loss, but it might be a 2 pound loss, which would be fabulous!
After weigh-in it was off to the park to run. Got there, stretched, and turned on the shuffle to head off. But, something went horribly wrong. The shuffle was not charged! I had to run with NO music. The horror! Seriously, it was bad. LOL! So, off I went to run 3 miles without music. The first mile was going fantastic! I got to the half mile point three seconds faster than ever before. I was so excited that this mile would be the fastest I ever run. Checked the watch at 3/4 mile marker and thought I was doing great. Hit the mile marker, checked the watch, and it said 00:00. NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO! Somehow the watch reset. :-( So upset! So, I have no idea how fast my first mile was. I KNOW I would have posted a great mile time. So sad. But, I bravely continued on and finished strong at 3 miles. Only the second time in my life I've run 3.
So, it's decision time. Do I sign up for the 5k in Baltimore or not? I have a concert the night before I would have to sell tickets to because I couldn't be in Philly Sat. night for a concert and then be in Baltimore the next morning for a race. Just insane. So, I have to decide and I have to do it before the 7th, because that's when pre-registration is over and the fee goes up. LOL!
Goals for the week:
1. Drink 64oz water every day.
2. Eat on points every day except Sat. (like every week)
3. Run 2 nights.
4. Do another form of cardio/weights 4 nights this week.
These were my goals last week and it lead to a 3.2 pound loss. I am going to keep them up. :)
