What a great week. I was really happy with my food and my workouts, I stayed off the scale for a full 7 days, and I really felt like my body was responding well this week. I asked more of it than I ever have before and it gave a firm "sir, yes, sir" in response. Way to go, body! So imagine the smile on my face when the receptionist handed me my book and I saw that I had lost 4.2 pounds (well, actually, it said -3.2 but that's because she's bad at math; I double checked and it really was 4.2). That puts me exactly 0.2 pounds shy of my 85-pound star, and I only came in 2.6 shy of losing 20 pounds for the Valentine's day challenge I joined on the WW boards. Awesome!
Speaking of V-day, this has been one of the best. I'm such a sappy sentimental fool.... I had already bought my girlfriend 2 presents (a pedipaws since she wants to clip the dog's nails but is afraid to use clippers and a cute pink water bottle because she hates her old one and it'll help her get in her daily water), a bag of lindt chocolates, a card that I wrote a VERY heartfelt message in, and a gift bag with froofy tissue paper earlier this week. We exchanged gifts, she read my card and cried. I got a new high quality chef's knife and a new beard trimmer, both of which I've been in need for quite a while.
Then Thursday I was driving by a store advertising 2 dozen roses for 20 bucks. I went in and found out they were selling them unarranged, so I spent an extra 25 and got a nice arrangement of 12 pinks instead. I got home, put them in a vase and put them on display. She loved em.
So you'd think between the gifts last night and the flowers Thursday that I'd be pretty much done right? Nope. I dropped by Papa Murphy's yesterday after class. It is her favorite pizza of all time, but she never gets because I don't care for it and we really don't eat anything we don't cook ourselves as of late. Anyhow, I picked up a heart-shaped pizza from there too. It was actually pretty good, and I even let myself enjoy having a couple of slices of normal pizza the night before weigh-in.
Then, after weigh-in, we came home and had heart-shaped pancakes (thanks for the idea Lyn!) and omelets. We'll spend the rest of the day doing lunch at a Mongolian BBQ (yum, been cravin that for weeks), hittin up the theater for a matinee, some Costco love, then relaxin at home, watchin a movie curled up in bed with a loving girlfriend, some leftover heart-shaped pizza and some V-day themed chocolate chip cookies.
I'm so romantic it even makes ME sick.
Progress so far: 84.8 pounds.
