A Day Late…

Oops. I totally meant to post yesterday.

Yesterday was my day off. Saturday’s workout was super hard. I couldn’t even finish belly dancing because my husband worked my legs incredibly hard. :) It felt super good, and then I spent yesterday being a complete lazy ass. Didn’t clean, though we did go shopping for Thanksgiving, and we, uh, did our marital … stuff (SORRY MOM). I am still fighting this fucking ear infection, so I spent the day trying to not be in pain. I also crocheted my husband a hat, and started working on one for me!

I am not feeling as bad about last week as I was when I did see how much I lost. Chris mentioned that he remembered reading somewhere that women on their periods tend to not lose weight, but he couldn’t remember if that was for sure or not. The woman body still eludes my husband sometimes. So I checked out the forums on My Fitness Pal. Sure enough, most women actually GAIN during their periods despite working out as hard and watching their calories. This really made me feel better that I actually lost a pound. :) It also makes me look forward to this week’s weigh in. Not only am I doing the scale this week, but I am measuring, too. My face is really, REALLY thinning out. Cannot wait for my parents and Lorien to see me and TELL ME THIS. :D

My mom is driving up to our place on Wednesday. This excites me. It’s the first time I’ve had a real Thanksgiving hosted by me, and I will be making the majority of the food. We have lactose free milk, vegan butter, and will be replacing everything in our recipes with those that we need to! It is going to be way easier than we thought (though, trying to find a gravy without milk/whey in it was like pulling teeth…). Since we’re going to be having guests and I don’t want to waste a lot of time on Thursday, we’ve decided to do another 3 days in a row for me for exercise. I think it will end up being okay. I will still be exercising on Friday, but we’re going to switch the days to where we are going Friday and Saturday, so I don’t have it like I did this last time where I had one off, one on, one off, three on. It was weird.

Also, while guests are here, I will only be doing kick boxing stuff. As much as I like belly dancing, it doesn’t burn nearly as much as the workout with Chris, and I really can’t do it in front of anyone right now. It’s okay, though. As long as I continue working out even while people are here, I should be fine.

Definitely going to be watching my portions on Thursday, but I’m also probably going to go over my calories. Still cannot wait for it and watch myself progress. :D
