Slimmer This Summer - Week 5 Results

Here are my stats for the Challenge:

Weight: I lost 1 lb so I am at 249. <-- This is like watching paint dry!
Water Consumption: I actually did better with my water this week. Being hot helps!
Activities: I did not try a new class. I did not get 10K per day

Not a stellar week for the challenge but there is hope! I have not been very active and therefore the scale is reflecting that. Now that all the birthdays and family visits are over for awhile, I can focus on my WL again.

I had one of THE best weekends I have had in a long time! We went to Outback on Friday to celebrate my brother's 50th birthday. I had the Ahi and salad as planned but I also had to Lemon Drops that were divine! I also met up with an old friend from middle school and it was great to see him!  I want to elaborate but I also do not want to incriminate so I will leave it at that for now.  Saturday we met up with extended family for brunch and then went back to Betty's (my mom) to swim. It was rather cool so it took us awhile to get in. I did not put sunscreen on (Doh!) so I have some extra color. Yesterday, we went to downtown Los Gatos and had breakfast and walked around and shopped. I got some earrings and a cute bracelet and I will take pictures for you Shelley. Yesterday afternoon, I met up with my old friend again and we went to Sanborn Park and walked and talked. It was a perfect day for it.  Funny, how after all this time *cough 30 years cough* that we still get along like we did when we were young. All I can say is that it has been a wonderful diversion for dealing with my current situation on the homefront.

Speaking of, I need to make some major decisions in that regard. The lease is coming up for renewal and I want to renew it just for me. When I originally applied for the apartment it was in my name only so Dave was an add on. I will call the Property Manager sometime today and get that ball rolling. I need to come up with a time line for Dave to be out too. Ugghhhh, that is the hard part - I don't want to be in charge of that but I just have to buck up and deal. Avoiding it is what I have been doing for the last year or so - so I need to stand up for myself. It is just a tough situation all the way around. Until next time...

  1. Congrats on your pound down! Love the comment about it being like watching paint shit!

    I'm glad you're making moves to do the next right thing regarding your relationship with Dave...sounds like it's been dying a slow death. And it doesn't hurt to have a new (old!) friend with whom to spend time either!

  2. Hi Katie

    Congrats on the weight loss and I too love your comment about "watching paint dry..." So true.

    Sorry about you and Dave but you gotta follow your instincts and take your happiness into your own hands.


  3. Hey, enough is enough, yes? You have to chose happiness... every time! And who knows? It might be right there waiting!

  4. Hi Katie!
    I just stumbled onto your blog and love it!

  5. Hey a pound is a pound. Santa Clara...nice place. I went to Marriots Great America in the late '80's and rode the Demon there, but I could have the Santa wrong...there are so many in Cali. Not to be confused with Santa Carla...where the Lost Boys are from LOL. Nice place, but too many Vampires. LOL

  6. Congrats on the loss that is wonderful! Nothing makes you feel better than to see a loss and not a gain! You are doing excellent and the weigh in is showing that good job Nicole @

  7. Congrats on the loss! You are worth every pound loss, every drop of sweat and all the happiness in the world. I sound like a Hallmark card - but it's true. Get you some! ;) Some smaller clothes, some new and exciting friends ;), and my oh my you are real close to that purse you've been after. All you, from here on out.

  8. I understand the paint drying thing. It is also like watching our toenails grow. It's never fast enough is it? I don't know how much you could have gained this week but I am capable of doing serious damage - physically and emotionally. Let's be glad, thankful, and very aware that that didn't happen!

  9. Glad you had such a good weekend - makes you stronger for the tough things, right?

  10. Congrats on the loss!!! Slow and steady...I will always take a loss (though as of late, they have been harder to come by!).

    Glad you had such a great weekend...will be thinking of you during this next phase!!!

    Take care...and keep it up, Girl!!!

  11. Like watching paint dry! Ha!!!!

    Have an excellent week, Katie!

  12. Well, congrats on the pound off. I know what yo mean about that slooooow loss. Hope you have another good week on STS and best of luck figuring out the homefront.


I'd love to know what's on your mind...
