I haven't left my apartment since Wednesday evening. I'm lucky that for my job, I can work from home 3 days a week and that I really just need to be there physically twice a week. I've been working off my patootie on a paper for an upcoming conference (which is due to the discussant on February 10... 11 days and counting). Seriously people, I watched Lost and the Biggest Loser with my laptop open, working on my data! Also, since I've not been going in the office, I obviously haven't been going to the gym. I haven't been since Monday. That doesn't mean that I haven't been using my videos and starting up the 30 Day Shred again!
And... drumroll please... that brings me to my ONE pound loss that I had for the week! Ta da! I think most of it has to do with paying attention to my diet rather than all the exercise I've been getting in. So, three weeks into my Ten Pounds in Ten Weeks Challenge, I've lost 2.2 pounds, which averages out to about 3/4 of a pound per week. Not to shabby :) I think that eating right and exercising does a lot for your self esteem as well. I've been feeling fat lately (could you tell from my last post?), but knowing that I'm taking the time to eat right and to make time to work my body at the gym (or at home) makes me feel good about myself.
So, my goal for next week will be another movement down on the scale (woot!) and to keep it up with my healthy eating. I'm going to a Super Bowl party on Sunday, but I promise not to indulge. After all... there is always celery associated with wings right? I'll just concentrate on the green stuff :)
