I know I was supposed to post new measurements last week, but honestly, if you can't tell, I've been lazy. I have gained back 5.8 of the 10 lbs. I lost. This is not good. Even with promising myself I was going to recommit, I didn't do too great of a job at it. I have been very busy and distracted, and I know those are just excuses because health and fitness are a lifestyle, not a side priority. So I'm just going to try and continue to move forward.

I knocked my goal-reward money down because I bought this today. I got it in a 6, and since it says it runs small, I know it will not fit me right now. I would be able to squeeze into it, but I don't want it to make me look like it's eating me, haha. So that will be something to hang up and look forward to for summer. I really needed a one-piece, because I think Josh and I are going to rent surfboards sometime during the summer and I don't want to have to worry about, um...indecent exposure.

I got pretty new LJ icons! Go look.

Tonight Josh and I are going to try out the gym at my new apartment complex for the first time. So that will be good. My gym closing down was probably a blessing in disguise. I'm going to try my best to run the 30 minutes I planned, but I've been so bad about my running. I hope I can make it through the entire time. I have the Corporate 5K with my work in a little over a week and I am so not prepared. Josh and I are signing up for the Run for the Trees 5K though! It will be his first race, so I'm excited to see how he does.

I am going to visit my family in New Orleans from this Thursday-Monday morning, so I'm really worried about counting PP. But I already looked up beignets (3 PP, plus 3 more PP for 1/4 cup of powdered sugar, hah), so at least I have a head start there... :p I'll probably grab some fruits and veggies and stuff at the grocery store when I get in, so I can have some food for the week. I know we'll eat out a few times though, so I need to keep myself in line and make sure I use the gym at my parent's apartment complex. I don't want this trip to be another excuse not to be on track...it seems like every week now there is SOMETHING. And I am determined to stop letting fun = food.

Thanks for those of you who are still reading and encouraging. ♥ I appreciate the support.
