The planets aligned... I didn't gain this week.

Good morning everybody. Well sort of good. I'm home sick from work, have a terrible cold and headache. It started off with a sore throat yesterday and now my head feels like a gigantic bowling ball. It hurts to lay down because all the sludge builds up in my head causing my sinuses to feel like they're going to explode. The soreness in my throat has been replaced with a small cactus. When I cough I still feel my abs from my workout on Saturday.

To my abs: "It's Tuesday... I worked ya hard... I get it... now quit whining!"

Feeling craptastic didn't stop me from weighing in though. And after last weeks surprisingly great loss of 5.74 pounds I was super surprised not to see a 2 to 3 pound gain. For those who are new to my blog (welcome! Take a seat, and feel free to browse around a while. Can I get you anything, coffee? tea?) I have a pattern of losing big one week, gaining a little the following week but on the whole have been going on a steady downward slope.

So this weeks loss of not quite half of a pound (0.4 pounds to be exact) doesn't give me the need to run out and buy new pants but it does mean that I am still above the 60 point! To be really sickening precise I am 61.82 pounds in the negative (or 28.1 kilos)!!!

I've been incorporating more fish and salads into my diet (meaning less red meat since we're big beef eaters in this house), so maybe that's what the kicker was for me to not have a gain.

This week I want to get in at least 2 really good workouts as we're meeting with the trainer, Javier, on Saturday to get weighed in and I really wanna make him proud! I find that kind of odd, that I really want my trainer to be proud of me but I do. We'll get our new fitness routines and hopefully that will be enough to take me past the 70 pound mark before we get to the US!

Our trip is only 38 days away so I'll really have to push myself to get there. It's just a small little fun goal, not a definite "I HAVE TO BE 70 POUNDS LIGHTER" type of thing but it would be nice to be able to tell everybody, hey I lost 70 pounds! I am so very looking forward to seeing my family and friends. Sometimes the excitement overwhelms me.

Geesh when I hit the 70 pound mark I'll only have 30 more to lose to reach my initial goal. That's amazing.

Feel better, congrats on another good week! I have a feeling you will be 70 pounds lighter but the time you travel!
