This is the first monthly weigh in for my 40 By 40 Challenge. You might remember that I am challenging myself to lose 40 pounds by my 40th birthday which is in June 2014.
Loss Goal: 40
June Loss: 4.8
Left to Lose: 35.2
I lost a little ground with my gluttonous vacation, but I was still able to get a solid loss. Now that the first month is over, I want to see myself continue to be excited about it and to continue to work hard to meet my goal. Many times I get bored with things and lose focus. I'm determined not to let that happen.
Last night was one of my Girls' Interesting Dinners.
We went to a Middle Eastern restaurant called Afghan Grill. I tried a glass of white wine from Turkey. It was very sweet, but good. I like red wine a lot more than white wine, but the red gives me a headache where the white does not. We shared some hummus as an appetizer. It was very good but didn't have a ton of spice or bold flavor to it that you might get at some places.
I ordered a chicken and rice dish. It was tasty, especially the rice. I'm not sure if is was basmati rice, but it had that type of texture and I'm a fan. Lizard got some middle eastern type raviolis and I have to say that if I go back, it is what I would get. I think I ate 1/3 of her meal!
Most of all, it is just nice to sit and hang out with some of my best friends and actually have conversation and laugh together.
I felt bad for BFF because we were commuting together and I have a wicked case of PMS. I was supposed to start Sunday and it is now Wednesday. I am not pregnant. What is the freaking hold up? Anyway, I pretty much hate the world which is NOT how I like to be. This is when it is super great to be single because I just went home, curled up, watched my Rangers and fantasized about my favorite player being the perfect boyfriend. Now that is what I call a great night. :-)
The next couple of days call for two-a-day workouts. I can do this. I can do this. It is worth it. It is worth it. I will succeed. I will succeed.
