Weigh in (late again) Wednesday! 12/15/2010

Well, hello there!  Life has been crazy getting ready for the holidays and finishing up the quarter at work on the right end of our quota so I am a little late posting this week. 

Weigh in went well this week - I lost another 1.6 pounds this week and have reached another milestone!  I have officially dropped 30.8 pounds from this body of mine!  It feels so great!  I really would like to get to the 35 pound mark by the end of the year - but with the holidays in full swing starting this weekend I will be realistic and settle for another three pounds before the end of the year - that is two more weigh ins and I think it is pretty doable.  And I am setting a personal goal for myself to workout at least 5 days a week for the rest of the year - I was doing really well with the 7 days a week when I was doing the 30 Day Shred but with everything else going on I am cutting myself a little slack!  At the first of the year I am planning on stepping up the workouts a notch to make sure this weight keeps coming off! 

We had our holiday dinner at work last night.  We have a smaller team so we are able to go out and actually spend some time chatting.  It was nice to be out and enjoying some adult time - I don't do that nearly enough.  I had a wonderful Black Bean Veggie Burger - it was so good!  I even splurged and had a couple of beers - I forgot how I miss those!  This was the last holiday dinner with our team being led by our current boss - we will be getting a new boss in January.  This has really bummed me out - I have loved working with my boss for that last 4 years and I will miss getting to work with him on a daily basis - fortunately he is not leaving the company so I will still get to see him and plan to use him as a mentor now that I don't actually report to him!  The prospect of a new boss is daunting but I am starting to get used to the idea - change can be good.  Do you think if I chant that over and over I will start to believe it!?!?!

We have a busy weekend ahead of us.  Two Christmas gatherings tomorrow - all with family - it will be a great time.  The girls will get to be with their cousins all day - they will love that!  And then on Sunday, my mom, brother, sister in law and nephew are going to go downtown to see the Elves at Macy's.  We took Zoe when she was a year old and I am certain that both girls will get a kick out of it this year - who knows we may actually stop and see the big guy with the white beard too! 

Have a great weekend and keep making those healthy choices! 
Jen

Hi Jen,
I hadn't read your postings before, very cool. I had to click because that's so exciting about all your weight loss! Congrats girl! I might see you tomorrow, we have plans to go to Macy's/Holidazzle also on Sunday with some friends.
