163 is where I'm starting....

Over at Renee's site she's having a little 6 week challenge and I've joined it. The plan is to lose 5 lbs by Labor Day. Since I forgot to weight myself yesterday I weighed this morning and that's where I'm starting. So 5 lbs would take me down to 158. I'd really like to hit 155 so maybe I'll secretly shoot for that.....

I am over my muscle soreness. The Firm on Saturday really killed me. Going for a long ass bike ride on Sunday didn't really help matters. Yesterday morning I could hardly get out of bed; so instead of aerobics as planned I walked on the treadmill for 45 mins or so. Even walking was hard my butt hurt so bad. This morning things were much better so I did The Firm again and although I could feel all my muscles I wasn't in agony.

Eating has been going really well. It really is like something has finally clicked in my head and I get it. I don't crave sweets or fatty stuff like I thought I used to. I really would prefer to eat healthy. In general it just tastes better and makes me feel way better. I did have Chinese food tonight, but hey, I can't be perfect all the time :)

Work has been insanely crazy for the past 2 weeks and it looks like it will be this week also. I haven't been getting my swimming in and I'm using work as my excuse; lame I know but the only one I got. I need to start swimming again though my tri is only about 8 weeks away. Hey, that's another good reason to lose 5 lbs - it will be easier to run and bike if I'm thinner......

Okay, I'm exhausted I have to go to bed NOW!!!!
