Weigh In Day and other Ramblings

Good morning!

Loss for the week:  0.4 pounds
Total 40 by 40 loss:  3.4 pounds
Total left to lose:  36.6

Not exactly what I was hoping.  My first reaction was disappointment.  How much does it suck to work really hard and not see the results that you want?  I was looking for something in the 1.5-2.0 range, so less than a half pound is a bummer.  BUT...then I realized A. a loss is a loss.  B.  I have lost for two weeks in a row and will be going for three weeks in a row which I have only done once this year and only once last year. 

Onward!  I have my meals planned out for the week.  I think I did a really good job of planning this week.  We shall see how I feel about it by Thursday.  Ha!  I also have my fitness planned for this week, the goal is:

CrossFit - M, T, Th (and Friday if I'm feeling sassy)
Lunch workout - M, W, Th
Jazzercise - W or S if I don't go to CF on F.

Remember that workout I had on Friday?  I knew it was a tough one, but wow...I was SO sore all weekend.  Honestly, I think I overdid it and I was borderline in pain.  My legs and glutes were sore Friday afternoon though Sunday morning and then my abs took over.  I was a little sore this morning, but nothing that would hold me back.  CrossFit wasn't too intense today, but I do feel like I got some good strength training in.  For those that care about that kind of thing, we did Power Cleans (10:00 OTM, 95#), Clean Shrugs (3x5, 115#), & Chin ups.  I'm still using 2 green bands to assist, but it is getting better.

I had a slow weekend so I tried to be a little productive.  I met the Debster for a movie on Saturday morning.  We watched Man of Steel.  I'm not sure if the movie is really good or if he is just really hot, but I enjoyed it.  Sunday afternoon, I worked on my closet a little bit.  I went through all of my shoes and tried to cull out the ones I don't wear anymore.  I have a ton of shoes, people.  Anyway, these are the ones I'm getting rid of:
Most of them are old and worn out sneakers, but there are a few nice work shoes in there too.  In fact, there are a couple of gently used pricey ones in there.  If anyone wears a size 10 and is interested in some new shoes for the price of shipping, I would be glad to take pics and send.

I cooked last night and BFF came over.  I made a Mushroom Cauliflower Pie from Shelly's Eggface blog.  It was pretty good and definitely good on the WW points.  I made it with some ham steak and it was a nice dinner.  I'm looking forward to the leftovers.

This must be the time for cleaning and organizing, because I just did two cupboards and 2 drawers this morning!
Good for you. I'm very proud.
Dinner sounds yummy!
