Slimmer This Summer - Week 6 Results

Here are my stats for the Challenge:

Weight: I lost another lb so I am at 248.
Water Consumption: I actually did pretty good with water this week.
Activities: I did not try a new class. I did not get 10K per day

How was your weekend? Hope you had a good one! Mine was good for the most part.
I did not go to Sacramento until Saturday morning. I just felt it would work better for me if I got some rest and took off early Saturday morning.  I finished the Hunger Games and got some extra Zzzzz’s. Saturday I took off about 9 and enjoyed the road. I had my iPod blasting and I was cruuuuuuuuising. I ended up getting lost (not unusual) but it was not too bad. Candace has a cute little apt. and is right by the pool.  We went to the Wal-Mart Super Center and I bought her some necessities for her apt like cleaning supplies and a trash can. I totally dig the Super Wal-Mart! I wish we had one in the nearby vicinity. When our office moves, we will be relatively close to Wal-Mart which will be nice. We made a nice dinner and chatted away… it was nice to get to spend time with her.  I ended up leaving around 1:00 p.m. on Sunday and my plan was to go to my mom’s and take her grocery shopping.  Well, after a half dozen emails back and forth, she decided to ask my 86 year old Aunt to take her instead. She is beginning to concern me more and more but that is another post for another day.

Things on the home front are pretty sketchy as you can imagine.  Dave had a few drinks after his umpiring yesterday and came home around 8:45 p.m.  I can always tell when he has been drinking by his animated behavior.  Well, I may have pushed him over the edge when I got a call from my friend around 10:00 p.m. saying he wanted to meet up with me. I was already in bed when he called but I wanted to see him so I got up, got dressed and went. Dave was totally flabbergasted that I was leaving. I felt a little guilty but I also thought that being up front about it is a whole lot better then trying to sneak around you know what I mean? He was gone when I got back – I assume he want to go drink some more. He was there when I woke up this morning and he reeked like booze. Blechhh…

Eating was pretty good overall until last night. I decided to make some popcorn after 9:00 p.m.(rule breaker!) and wolfed it down.  I think I need to either get single serving packs or avoid it for awhile. I am also obsessed with peanut butter lately. I am a super chunk kinda gal. Probably need to avoid that for a bit also.

Hoping to make it a good week.  This snail pace of losing can be so frustrating  but I have not been diligent about exercising so I am grateful to have lost this week.Until next time...


  1. Hang in the Katie!!!! Hope you have a good week!! Take care.

  2. Great job on your loss and sorry to hear your weekend wasn't totally great. Soon you will be able to move on with your life and maybe find some peace!

  3. Congratulations on the loss. You must be doing things right so continue!

  4. Ooh, Katie J - a booty call?!? ;) No, seriously, I'm glad you have someone that makes you happy.

  5. Nice work on the pound off. Good water, now about that exercise!!

    Did you like the Hunger Games? I had a friend who read them. I am not sure if they are for me.

  6. I loved the hunger games! It's generally not my kind of book, but I really enjoyed it.

  7. You know what? I'd say after the tough week you had, that was a pretty good weekend. You spent some time with loved ones. You lost some weight. And you had some fun.

    I'm glad you did.

  8. I am so glad you had a loss. Stress makes it really hard, but you perservered. Nicely done!

  9. Congrats on losing the pound! I am hearing more and more stories about slow and steady winning the race and I believe it's a good approach! Hope you find peace at home soon. A bad living situation can make things tough. Stay strong!

  10. Katie, congrats on another pound down! :) Sorry about Dave.
