Week 6… I’ve Hit A Wall

I want to put up one more post before the long Thanksgiving break. I’m heading home tonight and my parents internet connection is sketchy at best. I don’t know if I’ll be able to post or even log my food for the next 4 days, but I’ll try.

So, in the interest of full discloser (I mean really people, I told you how much I weigh, how much worse could it get for me) I need to confess that I have not gone to my group workout or done my individual work out for the past 2 days. I don’t even really know why. The alarm wakes me up at 4:45 and the thought of getting dressed, going out to my ice cold car and working out for 2 hours just sends me, so I roll over and go back to sleep. The guilt I feel after I wake up is overwhelming but I still did it twice. Maybe I’m stuck because I’m getting ready to go on vacation. 4 sweet days with no work, pta or sports academy are looming large. I’m still planning on walking at my parents but it won’t be at 4:45 a.m. Maybe I’ve been looking forward to this too much and so these last 2 days before the escape were unbearable and thus I’ve started my vacation early. I don’t know. What I do know is that I’m very likely to be eliminated now and that just sucks beyond the outer reaches of suckdom.

I need to re-energize so I can make it to the end of the competition. I plan to keep exercising even after it’s over. I’d like to sustain a 2 to 3 pound weekly weight loss until I hit my 150 pound goal. But I also need to be giving the extra effort required by my ultimate loser commitment. Does anyone have any advice?

Until then here are some pictures from the last competition. I don’t know how they do it but every shot they got of me looks like I’m not working at all! I was. Promise.

    Karen!!! Holy ****! You look great! I fear the t-shirts I sent are going to be far too big. I hope you can use them as really loose comfortable jammies. You are so my HERO!

    I am surprised that you can ever get up at 4:45 at any time, let alone to exercise for crying out loud. I fully understand the urge to not get out of bed and turn back to bed. I am having that problem right now and I don’t have to get up until 5:30 or 6:00. and I hate it. It is not natural to get up before the sun does. That is one disadvantage to electricity. now one can be up at anytime 24/7 and have light etc.Don’t be too hard on yourself. just keep plugging along. Good luck!
