Jan 9, 215.5

Ok, suddenly it's Saturday again and official weekly weigh-in day. I'm 215.5, which means I figure I'm reset for after the holidays.

I fell asleep at 8:00 last night and woke up at 3:30. This has been happening to me all week and I don't know why. It's ok, but it does mean I'm going to have a heard time staying awake through the darkened rehearsal tonight. It also, however, means that I have plenty of time to get in a lengthy workout before going to work at noon. I have to do a 3rd workout this week and I want it to be elliptical + weights.

But first, I'm eating last night's dinner. I didn't get to eat it last night because I fell asleep, and I was sooo looking forward to it - acorn squash stuffed with tofu, applesauce, raisins, and walnuts. I had it before and it was awesome.

Oh, part of this morning's check-in was measurements again. I had already been able to tell, somehow, from the mirror that I had increased puffiness in my belly again. Like it's the first place I regain. I was checking the internet to see if reducing my diet soda intake would reduce my waistline specifically, but I found nothing to really indicate that. I hope that as I get down to 200 over the next 3 months I see a reduction in my belly finally!! That will be the greatest thing. Oddly, one of the main reasons I started this diet - that my pants didn't fit well due to my waist size - well, I am suffering that again now at 215. I suppose, aside from fat loss, pulling those muscles in could help, if that's possible. I have read that many people who get lipo from their bellies also typically follow up with an operation to tighten the muscles of their abdomen - sounds like a pretty major operation to me but a lifetime of a belly like mine apparently could pull those abdominal muscles out of their prime structure. It's a horrible thought. Surgery isn't an option for me anyway, so let's hope fat loss does something in the next 3 months, and I'll be thinking of adding some toning exercises too, but not so much with the crunches - more like yoga, dance, or Pilates. I just think crunches will make my abs bigger more than pull them in!

So today - workout in the morning, after dinner. Then breakfast, and prepare and pack food for the day. Then to work at 12, hopefully a little break of about an hour or two and then rehearsal tonight, and then pass out. Pretty straightforward.

What are you rehearsing for? I've been tired lately too...maybe its the dark and cold. (at least here).

I must admit i'm curious to hear what the rehearsal is for :) Hopefully you'll get a better sleep tonight!

Please share the recipe for the acorn squash- that sounds really good! I find myself falling asleep really early too. I think it's because it gets dark so fast!
