Weigh In Wednesday

#fitat40 is the new #fitby40

Weight: 203
Down 1.8 since last week which unbeknownst to me on last Wednesday's weigh-in was a period week. Because of course it was, right? With ALL THE ACTIVITIES planned. I am ecstatic because today I hit 20 pounds lost! I've got 4 pounds to go to be "under 200" which was a #fitby40 goal. Next big goal is to be 190 like my drivers licence claims I am. When I get down to 190, I will have lost the equivalent of what my 3-year old daughter weighs. I have found tackling these small goals makes the big picture not seem so intimidating. My BMI (which whatever) is currently about 30.9 - because I really don't know if I'm 5'7" or 5'8" - so I'm still in the obese category which is anything over 30. Supposedly, to be in the high range of "normal" weight, I should be at 160 so I'm looking at a long journey ahead. Can't stop, won't stop, right?
Lifetime Steps: 2,581.398
That is 52,977 since last Wednesday which averages to 7,568/day. This is not exactly super accurate but honestly I took last week off as far as step counting because it was "Birthday Week" for me and my mother-in-law. We went to the Dodger game and out to lunch on Wednesday and I had a mani pedi and a nap on Thursday. Friday morning I took the fitbit off completely until I got back home from Vegas late Saturday afternoon. So liberating. I'm glad to be back on the horse though. I've hit my step goal every day since despite having a pretty dumb tummy bug that made me almost poop myself on my lunch walk. You're welcome.

Frame of Mind
Despite the massive sleep deficit and maybe days of hangovers, I feel pretty good honestly. Since Wednesday I have had little to no desire for beer which is a first for me. I have had a tummy bug so eating is undesirable. I feel like I have been getting full so much faster and I couldn't even finish my delicious dinner at Yolanda's last night for Taco Tuesday. The margarita I had went straight to my head and I fell asleep putting Casey to bed. Stinkin' lightweight all of a sudden. What's happening to me?!
I had a great week last week with the in-laws here helping out and with all the celebrating of turning 40. This weekend Husband and I have a date for our 8-year wedding anniversary. Yesterday marked a year at my "new" job and I had a great review topped off with a big raise. Starting in June, I will have new and more responsibilities so I'm proud of that. My depression and anxiety have been at an all-time low since I've been moving more and eating better. I'm happy with my body for the first time in a long time. So yeah I think things are good. Here's to a new decade.

I started noticing a correlation with that. This week I moved a lot less trying to take care of new job things and new dog things. And yesterday I was like wow, I'm in such a funk this week. And in the back of my head I knew this about myself, exercise makes me happier.
