6 Weeks of Madness - Where Do I Stand?

Ooops, I made a boo-boo on yesterday's post. I'm not changing it, nor am I telling you what it was. If you can find it, you'll see it, and there is no prize for it, just sayin'...

So yep, we are six weeks into the rest of my life and LIFE is CRA-CRA. Today I'm going to get the u-haul that will get most of our stuff over to the apartment and...

...you guessed it, I am so EXCITED. The lifting, the walking, the moving, the sweating.

WooHOO! This week is going to suck in so many good ways, YAY!

But we're here to talk about last week, so let's just see what's the haps...

Week 6 Recap:

Day 36: 286.2 - I had seen the 2 8 5 and got scared, yikes.

Day 37: 286.6 - Really nervous, apparently.

Day 38: 287.6 - Okay, nervous is one thing; stupid? a whole nother.

Day 39: 286.8 - Whew, going down again.

Day 40: 285 - duh duh duhhhhh (scary movie music) because here we are again.

Day 41: 285.8 - Don't toy with me, scale. I've got YOUR number.

Day 42: 284.6 - YAY, I'm UNDER the dreaded 2 8 5

Day 43: 282.2 - Whoa! Now THAT'S how we begin Week 7, people!

The Recap RE cap?

I lost 4 pounds this week, for a total down of 24.2 pounds in 6 weeks. I am averaging 4+ (slightly +) pounds lost per week and I am STOKED!

I am almost to my first goal. Remember that goal? Here's the goal list again, in case you've forgotten.

WOW. I can't believe it. In fact, HONESTLY, I won't feel comfortable until I actually get under the 280's.

I mean, it FEELS like 2 8 5 is but a distant memory, but...

ANYway, let's talk about miles for a minute, because I may have an issue. I began last week with 50.84 miles and ended up with 71.72 walked for week 6. That's an impressive 20.88 miles.


There are only 4 days left in the month and I still have 28.28 miles to go. Can I DO 7.07 miles (at least) per day?

I'm hoping that with ALL the hauling and moving, that I can. We shall see! I'm not usually a wait till the last minute kind of girl...ugh.

But HEY, let's celebrate: 2 4. 2 pounds DOWN!! WOOP WOOP and WOOHOOOOOOO!

Okay, I'm off for today, gotta go wake the bear to go get the truck. Remember, I won't be here Wednesday OR Thursday so have a GREAT couple of days away from this silly mess.

Till next time!

I am a work in progress, always. Sometimes I stumble, but I always get back up. The hard part is knowing which direction to turn. If I go THAT way, I know I will fail. This time, I'm going THIS way. It's a new direction for me and I will NOT fail. Cheers!
