Starting week 7

I have been so busy with work the last 2 weeks I haven't had a chance to write my blog. But I have been keeping up with the exercise even though I've had to do a lot of driving to meetings and classes. I started teaching a summer class at night, which really screws up my schedule. I'm thinking this is why I have such weird night time eating habits. But… no excuses. I am so happy my band keeps me from eating huge amounts of food at night on the drive home. I will be ending my 8 week challenge exactly two weeks from today. I'm already starting to think about my next big goal. I want to change things up, I'm already feeling a little bit bored with this one. But I am still in awe that I've actually done 10 hours a week for 6 weeks. I almost didn't make it this past week. I tweaked my knee while gardening so I took it easy for a few days. I love that I bought a cheap knee brace years ago and I can just put it on to help me not twist or hyper-extend it.

Oh, and I was at 155 for two days this week, but the scale crept back up today so I'll just see what happens. It's kind of funny because almost all the clothes I have are baggy on me. But I just don't want to buy anything right now. I am planning on going shopping on the way home from seeing my friends in two weeks. I figure that will help motivate me to not each too much chocolate while I'm there. I would really like to be able to wear the size medium pants I bought. I'm not quite there yet, but I know I will be wearing them sometime this summer.

I've got a big deadline to meet the end of this week, but then I think things will slow down a little for me and I can start going back to the gym. So… my goal for the next 7 days is to go to the gym on Friday and do some weights at home this weekend. I also want to start my morning walks a little earlier since it's getting pretty hot during the day. For eating, I'm going to keep on watching my snacking. I also need to figure out a better eating plan for the nights I teach. Then I only have one more week after that. It's still hard to believe that I've been doing this for 6 weeks.
