Day 43 - Memorial Day Weigh In

After a crazy week of stress I weighed in at 284.8 - which is a loss of 2.4 lbs. this week! Great considering that my schedule was non-existent AGAIN, and that I have not been getting any sleep AND drinking alcoholic beverages like I think their going to run out, lol. ***I just noticed that I have officially broke the 50 lb. mark! My total weight loss is 50.6 lbs!*** I also got a total of 2 hours of activity last week. Might not seem like much, but it's better than ZERO!

Today is back to basics. School is out, and I have at least a week off with no plans. I am wrapping up my birthday celebrations, and don't have any alcohol/club/late night plans in my future. Going to a movie with a friend this afternoon, and no plans for tomorrow (which is my actual birthday). I don't NEED to do anything for tomorrow, since I've been celebrating for a week! It's been a great birthday! First time in YEARS.

Bottom line is that I have time to CONCENTRATE on getting back into my healthy eating and exercise. I also need to focus on my school work, and try to work ahead where I can. Next week starts summer school, and that will keep me busy for a few hours every day. I am also going to try to get with Target again and start that ASAP. I am just glad to be able to kick back for a little while before the madness begins. I'm thinking long walks outside, some pool action, and sleeping in!

On Saturday evening I got a chance to take an hour-long walk ALONE. It was so great, and I've got a new route around the neighborhood now. Right now I am off to mow the grass, and plan to do a little grilling for lunch. Turkey burgers (for me), hot dogs for the kiddos, and plenty of watermelon! Now that's what I'm talkin' about!
