My sweet sweet pumpernickel pickles, I went to TOPS today
Ready for this?
My loss for this week: 1.25 pounds
My losses for 5 weeks: 19.50 pounds
Total for all of our friends so far in this Mid-Year Resolution Challenge: 793.27 pounds!
It should have been more, but I knew the pizza toppings situation was going to haunt me indefinitely. I am ready to not cheese it up so much from here forward and have some ideas I will share with you soon! I also have pictures of the treadmill desk in progress, and will have more of a tutorial for you another time.
Now what I had yesterday… First of all, here’s the plan I’m following and here is the introduction post to the Mid-Year Resolution Challenge. While you look at what I’m doing, be sure to do your thing. I am thrilled to give some ideas, but I’m not the person you should necessarily look to for dieting advice (I’m not a paid nosh-a-titian). I am, however, here with you to cheer you on when you’re so skinny you will have to watch slipping through the cushions of your couch.
Oh, and those nachos are coming on Monday! Stay tuned!

I ate this:
Breakfast: Snack platter: Olives + pepperoni + cheese + grape tomatoes
Lunch: Hot dog + cheese+ LC ketchup + mustard + onions
Snack: 1/3 cup mixed nuts
Dinner: Chipless nachos
Exercise: Walked and worked for 1 hour at my treadmill desk at 1 mph.
Notes: I have a super-busy writing schedule today! Eep!
What I learned:
I miss how amazing hair styling products smell.
Sometimes when I am not feeling like it’s worth the effort–OK, make that the last 3-4 years, I just put no effort into myself. Ponytail goes up (and when it’s too long, goes into a bun), makeup I bought 3-4 years ago is typically caked up, and the earrings I loved in the 80’s are finally making a comeback.
I went ahead and, even though I have a lot of weight left to lose, got a quick haircut. My hair was so long that I suspect that was partly why it kept getting pulled out at the roots, too.
With 6-10″ shorn (I typically donate to Locks of Love, but I didn’t have enough this time), I have a super-cute bob and I am using some of my styling products (erm, that have been around for a while) for a tiny bit of lift, and my hair smells super cute and oh so pretty!
It makes me realize that I don’t have to be at goal to do something for myself that makes me feel a little bit fancy.
Be a little fancy.
