It's Friday - And You Know What That Means...

It's Weigh Day!
Or at least, it's my "official" weigh day - the one that counts and gets posted. I know I weighed in yesterday too - that's because I realized that I haven't had an official weigh in since (gasp!) August 5th. Seriously - I need a major ass-kicking - Pronto! I'm smart enough to know only the worst can happen when I don't keep my weight in check. (I don't think I weighed myself between December of last year to April of this year, and this is precisely how 30 pounds can creep on while you're, a-hem, "not looking"). The weigh in yesterday was mainly to see the vacation damage I had done. I was too nervous to step on the scale since getting back - yesterday was the moment of truth. Ugh....

Anyway, not to be deterred, this morning I hopped on the old scale and thankfully, it appears I am losing the ice cream vacation weight. I'm back to 230.25 this morning, which is right where I was August 5th, incidentally. So, to sum it up, August has royally sucked the big one as far as weight loss goes, but fear not, my friends - I am determined to make September a MUCH better month. You have my word. I'm more than a wee bit angry at myself that in two months I have not lost more than 6 pounds, but things are about to change. I'll be taking that 10 lb loss picture soon - I hope!

In other news, I did check out the gym at school yesterday and was rather delighted to find some decent nautilus  equipment, 4 treadmills and 3 elliptical machines, plus free weights and some medicine balls. It's actually pretty nice. I could kick my own ass for not taking advantage of this sooner, but I am feeling good about my course of action for this semester, and taking advantage of this place. I didn't see any locker room for showering, however which has me a little worried - BUT worse case scenario, I'll just throw a stick of deodorant in my bag and a change of clothes so I can freshen up in the bathroom after my work out the best I can before class. Is that freaking disgusting? I know if I wait to work out until after class (which can be anywhere between 9:00PM - 9:45PM) it just isn't gonna happen so I am trying to figure out the best plan of action so I don't blow this. While it's not my goal to reek up the classroom, I don't want to jeopardize my ability to work out simply because a shower isn't available - that would be stupid....I am not trying to impress anyone in my classes, but I certainly don't want to alienate people with a case of my post-workout BO either. What do you all think?

Anyway, I'm not going to agonize over it. I'm just happy to have checked it out and I feel comfortable that I will be heading there at least 3 times a week. It's a start. Today's focus is getting the house in order - we are having carpeting installed today and will be getting new furniture on Tuesday. I can't wait - this house has been upside down long enough!!! So much to do, so little time!


  1. Body spray will cover up a multitude of sins. Don't worry! :)

  2. Seriously our weight is so close. Let's do this!

    The spa is with my MIL & lets just say I have been with my hubby 14 years (married almost 9) and she's NEVER included me in anything, so I am feeling some sketchy.

  3. I go grocery shopping sometimes after the gym, and people can just deal with it. Body spray and deoderant and you are good. I stopped caring so much when I saw drunk girls in their bikinis wandering around Kroger.
