I thought I’d check in every Wednesday to let y’all know how I’m progressing towards my current goal of getting to 170 pounds by Big Kahuna. So far, so good! I’ve lost 3.2 pounds since returning from Mexico.
The black bars are where I should be if I lose two pounds each week. The blue highlighter represents my actual numbers from my Monday weigh-ins.
Lately, I find myself asking (quite often, actually), why things can’t just be EASY. Spraining my finger comes to mind. Forgetting almost everything I needed for my long run in Vegas is another example.This week, it’s “major drama at my gym causes all the personal trainers to quit.”
It’s so frustrating, because I finally had a good thing going with my trainer. And now he (and all the others) are at a gym down the street that costs $60/month and isn’t, y’know, in the lobby of the building where I work.
Also, the chain/gears/shifters(???) of my new bike are messed up. Alex and I have both looked at my chain and it seems to be on properly, but it’s just not right. The bike is noisy, and when I pedal it does that ka-chunk! slipping thing. It doesn’t FEEL like I’m in the gear that’s indicated, and I can only even kind of ride in the highest gear or two. I have to take it to the bike shop; hopefully they can help me understand what I’ve done wrong, and how to avoid/fix it in the future. This morning, I slogged through my 30 minute ride by going around and around the blocks of my neighborhood, because I wasn’t comfortable out on main streets with traffic. I felt dumb.
