New Start 10 and 11 - Weigh in time
Omigod - it's getting close now! I lost 7 lbs over the last 4 weeks which included my holiday. Admittedly, all of that was in the last week since I got back but that means I maintained over 3 weeks in Canada and that, to me, is a bit of a triumph!
Only 21lbs to go now and hopefully then I'll be a size 12 and only have a few wobbly bits left. It's so close I can touch it. I always had the end of August as my "in the back of my mind" target so hopefully I can meet that. I will have to really concentrate on upping the exercise so as not to fall short.
Having said that, I've been a bit slack this week due to the various chores I have to do at home each evening. I've not wanted to miss the running but have made myself stay in and clean and work etc. I did play golf this morning and I am definitely going training tomorrow night though. I'm dreading that - I bet Huw will be his usual sadistic self and I'm going to be totally out of practise. Yikes!
It's been one of those days when the world and his wife seem to have an opinion on my weight - loads of women on the golf course, people at work, the woman who looks after the dog, the girl at the petrol station....all nice but mostly saying that I should stop now. Well, I'm not quite ready to stop and I don't think size 12 is freakily thin thank you very much, SO THERE but thanks for the compliments, much appreciated!!
My Big Boss was amusing this afternoon at work too. Haven't seen him for a couple of months due to 2 lots of hols so when we passed in the corridor today he did a very exaggerated "checking me out" eye flick. Not very prfoessional. He then said he had a Health & Safety problem with the office, called me over, pointed to a little crack between 2 carpet tiles and told me to be careful thatI don't fall down between them - charmer or what?! When I mentioned the little exchange to the guy I sit opposite - he said "oooh watch yourself - he's been through half the women on the third floor and he'll be after you next!". Oh no he won't - boss or no boss.
Perceptions again though - it didn't occur to me that there was anything even slightly suspect about the exchange but my work mate told me I was daft and should watch out for that from now on in. As a big fat woman you don't expect colleagues to show the wrong kind of interest so are free to take any exchange as mere friendliness.
Played golf this morning extremely badly - think I'm going to throw the towel in at this rate. Playing again on Friday as it's a 2 part competition but, as I'll be holding the field up from the bottom with my dire score today, there's no hope for me. Still, it was a pretty day and a morning out of the office so what harm?
I'd better go and and get on with the chores as have 5 visitors descending on Friday. Eeeek.
