Apartment Chills and Weigh-in

See now, I knew it was water weight. I lost 5.8 pounds today! I weighed myself on the new scale I got for Christmas. It seems to be pretty accurate so far (it matched up with the WW scale last week).

Sooooo, if you deduct the 3.6-pound gain from last week, which I suspect was water weight, that means I lost a solid 2.2 pounds. Not too bad. This means that I am 1.5 pounds away from my next mini-goal. I might reveal my weight after that since it's going to be a pretty big milestone. But I haven't decided yet. That 1.5 pounds can't come soon enough.

My grammar class was cancelled yesterday so I was able to take Kettlebell at work. It had been a while since I had an official Kettlebell class, so I'm sure I'll be very sore in the coming days. In related news, I attempted to do Kettlebell at home. I had a pretty solid workout with having no peer pressure to push myself to the edge of vomiting. I worked out for about 35 minutes and was huffing and puffing most of the time. After I finished and was calming down, I remembered a ton of moves that I forgot to do. I'm going to have to make a list to follow next time.

Clay made this fantastic sweet and sour chicken dish last night. That kid can cook, let me tell you. He sliced the chicken breast insanely thin and put a TON of veggies in it. The sauce consisted of some soy sauce, ketchup, sugar, and other things I don't remember. It was very low-points and very satisfying. He used his new wok, too. I never really understood the difference between the amount of space in a wok and the amount of space in a large skillet. Oh boy, do I now. That wok can hold several children, I think.

I'm off to teach, folks. Poetry waits for no man. Or woman.

As for the title of this blog entry, my apartment is freezing. I can't feel my fingers. Speaking of fingers, Jenna, in the episode of 30 Rock I watched last night, was being attacked by a monkey and screamed "its foot fingers are so strong!" Oh that Jenna. She really know how to make you pee.

Weight loss this week: 5.8 pounds
Total weight loss: 38.4 pounds

  1. Ah, you're almost at your goal! This is fantastic! I've been trying to get back on the exercise/healthy bandwagon since my hideous schedule last semester. You totally keep me motivated! Go you!
