It’s FRIIIIIIIDAY!

Well, my stress-er for the week, my dead vehicle ended up being comically easy to fix. I went from fearing a $1000 repair to…$139 repair. Can’t beat that, eh? All the same, I learned a valuable lesson in the last two days in that I now know I can properly handle stress! In the past, something like my truck dying would send me into an anxiety attack. When that anxiety would spike, I’d combat it with cigarettes and junk food. (If you look at my starting pics, you can tell I had a pretty big anxiety problem! ) These last two days though…I didn’t even think of cigs and chips. Instead, I got antsy waiting for lunch to roll around so I could go to the gym and burn off nervous energy. It felt great too!

This morning, the ‘official’ at home in my skivvies weigh in was 252.3, which means I’m at the end of my extra vacation poundage! Took a month, but eh….it was a good vacation. It also means things are moving rather well again too. I saw a 2 lb loss between last week and this week in the newly started weight loss group at work, and that’s with jeans & tshirt on too, so as Fonzie would say….”Ayyyyyy!” We’ll keep churning on in that direction, cause hot damn, let’s conquer the last half this journey!

The gym was good today for the most part. Was kind of spaced out due to mechanics calls, but it got done. I don’t think I’m going to see any gains in the OHP for awhile, those still feel pretty maxed out. I hear those don’t advance quest as much. I got back to my 255 lbs on the squat though, concentrating on getting lower and making sure I get parallel, so that’s pretty solid right there. I had to cut out the bro curls and skullcrushers this week due to running out of time, but again… accessory work, so nothing to lose sleep over!

The bad side to my workouts….I’ve gone another week without running. It’s just been too damn cold and I don’t have the cold weather gear (or the money to buy it) to make it comfortable. My goal this weekend is to get the treadmill back in from the garage that was relocated for holiday decorations and get in some time on that day to day. I’ll alternate that with the stationary bike at home too to boost the cardio back up. I want to be able to start piling on some miles again as soon as it climbs back up above 30!

This weekend is a cheat meal weekend too. It’s one of my goals with my health coach! Cheat meal every two weeks! She was smart enough to make it one of my goals too, because otherwise I’m far too bull headed and would NOT do it. I see pizza in my future and it looks glorious.

Later, gators!
