It is AMAZING to me how much weight my body fluctuates. On Saturday, I stepped on the scale and I was FINALLY past those 5 lbs I couldn't lose. Infact, I beat them by 2 lbs. So I was down a total of 7 lbs from where I started. I did nothing different for the next few days and on Monday when I stepped on the scale I was up almost 10 lbs! This mornging when I weighed, I was down 6. So, still past my goal by a lb, but seriously! It's crazy. If I can't beat this water weight fluctuation, it's going to be a LOOOOOOONG road.
With that being said, I know I'm not drinking enough water. Infact, I'm not really drinking any. I haven't been buying any pop (or soda) because the little money we have needs to be spent on other groceries. So I haven't really been drinking anything. So, I know I'm not helping the problem. So, my goal for this week (now until next Wed) will be to get all my water in!
Since technically I hit my first goal, I'm setting my 2nd goal. Aaron's going to be recieving his district license at a service on July 29th. My goal is to be down at least 10 by then. Doesn't sound like a steep goal, but our mission trip to Toronto is thrown in there. I'm not sure how we'll be eating so I'm not positive how much control I'll have of my diet for 7 days. So, this might be a little tough. Also, the hotel we're staying at doesn't have an exercise room, so I won't have a indoor place to run. The neighborhood might be ok, but I won't know that till I get there. I might just end up running around our hotel. I can't afford to skip a week of training!
