It is weigh day baby!! And here is the good news for today. I am down 8 more pounds to 247 and for those scoring at home, well that equals 50 pounds lost!!!!! It is mind numbing to imagine that in less than three months, I have dropped 50 pounds. I would have never thought I would be able to do that, not in a million years. So cheers After Journey Shane. Well done sir.
So true to form, I have to follow the good new with some what I would say is maybe bad news, but a weird kind of bad. I am stressed, stressed, stressed over the LSAT. I was cruising along today, eating was on course. Then after supper, I had a mini melt down of sorts. I am not sure if a) eating yogurt, celery and peanut butter, 5 turkey pepperonis, and a fiber bar and b) I am only a few calories over the 1800 limit I have set is really considered a mini melt down. Now the fact it is emotional eating should be a point for concern, but I am done for the night and the damage, while up front and center on my radar, is minimal. I think it is just a matter of how do I handle the days after this.
I made a discovery tonight. Kathy can cook a dish called ratatouille and it is yummy!! We had turkey brats with it for a great supper, followed by my mini melt down. After that, I went into war preparation mode. I packed the ziplock back I am allowed to bring to the LSAT with the stuff I am allowed to bring, then printed off my ticket I have to bring to the test, then the most important part, I loaded my MP3 with my 'get pumped' music to listen to on the way up to get myself in battle mode before the test. I am ready and raring to get this test taken, and am praying to God for wisdom and courage. Think of me tomorrow guys.
And for the Hot 100 update: I am on goal all the way around! My vegetable intake, thru the roof!! I have had salads full of veggies 4 days this week, I had ratatouille for supper tonight, I have celery and peanut butter every night. I have not had any white bread per my amended bread goal, in fact the only bread I have ever is the pita bread I have for my lunch and it is flax seed, whole wheat and I want to say barley or something. I did knock my 5k down to 43 minutes 30 seconds last week and am hoping to knock it down again this week. And as mentioned above, I am down to 247 lbs now! So Hot 100 has been great to me so far!! Come on Hotties, let's rock these last 83 days.
