Today has been kind of nutso on the work front, with me dashing into DC for a meeting and then settling into House of Steep in Arlington (my new favorite place evarrrrr!) for the rest of the afternoon to work with my coworkers, but I wanted to pop in and give you a quick update nonetheless.
First up, I have the winners of the Cooking with Greek Yogurt cookbook giveaway! As plucked out of the lineup by my random giveaway winner plugin, let us congratulate…
Jen Mitchell: I like to make a breakfast parfait with plain Greek yogurt, fruit, and some cereal. Boring but it sticks with me all morning.
April: I use plain greek yogurt in my mac and cheese. It makes it really creamy and adds some protein. So good!
Whoop whoop! Congrats ladies! Email me your full name and address — [email protected]!
So there’s the “winners” portion of this update, so let’s move right onto the “loser” half, shall we?
(Re)Starting Weight: 236.6 lbs
Last Weigh-in: 231.0
This Weigh-in: 230.7 lbs
Difference: -0.3 lbs
Alas. While yes, technically that’s still a loss, I have to admit I’m pretty disappointed. Aside from my anniversary dinner on Saturday, I was under my calorie goals every day this week! In fact, due to my new braces and inability to eat, my calorie counts have been looking especially impressive over the past few days.
Blargh. I know that weight loss isn’t an exact equation and there are lots of different factors and blah blah blah, but I’m still disappointed. I was really just hoping to keep the momentum going. After all, how am I supposed to win Yelp’s Biggest Loser with 0.3 pound totals?!
Aaaaanyway, there’s no point in dwelling. I’m just going to move on, keep on doing what I’m doing, pray that I’ll be able to eat solid foods again soon, and blame this mood-dampening weigh-in on my period.
