Week 8 Weight Loss

The weight is releasing. I am down another 3.3 lbs. I didn't get a chance to measure myself before my flight this am, so it will have to wait 'til next week. Besides, I think measurements might need to move to bi-monthly installments anyway.

It was a good week, despite expanding my comfort zone. I did not eat my minimum amounts of meal replacements any days this week, and since Thursday, I have had to eat at least one meal at a restaurant. However, I think I made some good choices. I didn't over indulge, (with the exception of one glorious handful of Doritos which tasted so extra-salty-cheesy-yum), and I had a chocolate-covered strawberry instead of birthday cake at a family party.

I managed to get all my PA calories in this week too. I hit 2150, which is a nice, safe number. I had a few harder workouts in there, but mostly this comprised of walking at lunchtime with co-workers. The buddy system works for me.

So, this week, my comfort zone is much more expanded, as I am on the road for work. I have just unpacked, and have a nice little stack of HMR foods at the ready. I have a little fridge in my room, so I am going to go to the grocer in a few to pick up some grab-and-go fruit.

I haven't checked out the gym yet in the hotel, but I brought my bathing suit. Not only is it a little treat to soak in the whirlpool, but I just might have to rock out some wet fitness. When I am bored, I get the munchies, so I am going to do my best to keep myself busy. Happy Monday Everyone!


  1. Congrats on the loss! I want to soak in a whirlpool too. I think I'm going to find a 24 Hour near me that has a steam room. That stuff is awesome.

    Good job with staying on plan! I've been playing around with different types of foods still. So yum :) How was that chocolate covered strawberry?

    Have fun in the hotel! I love how in hotels, I never have to make my own bed.

  2. Congrats on the loss! Awesome. :)

  3. Good idea to bring your swimsuit. You can also do crunches, push-ups, tricep dips, etc.. in the privacy of your hotel room too.

    Have a safe trip.
