musicartlife7's Journal, 22 August 2016

This loss was an exciting one after the plateau of the last two weeks. We had birthdays over the weekend, and as the resident baker in a houseful of men, I was baking up a storm. I'm happy to say I had exactly one bite of the phenomenal apple pie I made my roommate, and that was enough.

Despite everything, I kept to my diet all weekend, and worked out for about an hour on Saturday morning. My knee has been bothering me quite a bit the last few days, so I'm hoping the weather clears up this afternoon so I can finally swim again. With all of the rain the last week, the mosquitoes have been horrific and you can't come up for air without getting bites over any exposed skin.

Instead, I've been doing strength training with my other roommate. We got a stability ball, and 10 lb medicine ball, yoga mats, resistance bands, and free weights, which he has been having me use while I'm waiting on the rain to stop.

I've missed this soreness in my muscles. With any luck, I can say goodbye forever to the 250's later this week, and keep moving toward my goals.

I also bumped into a friend of mine at a concert Friday night. He was in the opening band and had moved to California and gotten himself a record deal. He told me he was moving back, and I'm using that move as a little extra motivation to kick myself and get back to where I was. I would like to look smaller the next time we hang out, just because everyone else is always here and won't be as observant of the change... I think a large change will be noticed easier and give me a little bit of that ego boost when he says something about the loss.

I'm not a vain person, but when it comes to stuff like this, I do think it helps my lack of confidence and self esteem.

Not to mention (and I know, I know. Never lose weight for another person, always yourself), he's a sweetheart, and I've liked him for a few years. That being said... Even if he WEREN'T moving back, I'm still losing weight. This is just ADDED motivation, not my sole purpose.

Either way, happy Monday, everyone! It's time to kick off this week the right way.
