Scales are Evil

14 Aug

I’ve been super swamped since I got the news that I’m moving to Jacksonville. I’ve basically had a day and a half to do all my laundry, pack my essentials AND get things in order for the boudoir pictures. Check out my dining room table, covered with my “essential” clothing:

Upon seeing my things on the dining table last night, my husband got a little teary-eyed. Neither of us is really looking forward to the time apart. When he first moved down to Melbourne two years ago, we spent a few weeks apart while I was finishing up school and getting my ducks in a row to move down to be with him. It was hard on us both and we made the 5-hour drive a few times just to see each other.

Anyways, I still have a ton to do for the move. Hello, cup of Joe, we’ll be good friends today. After I finish this blog and get dressed, I’ve got to take my car to get the oil changed. I’ve put a lot of miles on it recently, and I really don’t want to neglect it. Then I need to finish my packing, double check everything, load up the car, say goodbye to my doggies (only temporary, they’re coming up with the hubs later), drive up, hopefully drop things off at my mom’s, then meet my husband at his parents’ house. I hope I can squeeze in a run around their neighborhood tonight.

Judging by the title of this post, its safe to assume today’s weigh-in wasn’t that spectacular: 133.2. Not a shocker. Whenever I have a night of boozing, I always see the effect on the scale two days after. Today was no different. So my plan is to continue chugging water like I did yesterday, avoid sodium, and eat a lot of veggies and lean protein. That should take care of my problem.

I did manage to get to the gym yesterday. I did a 30-minute 30 Day Shred-style circuit workout:

Circuit 1
2 min running @ 6.0
2 sets, 12 reps modified push-ups
2 sets, 12 reps squat-presses
50 crunches
50 crunches w/ a twist
Circuit 2
2 min running @ 6.0
2 sets, 12 reps standing dumbbell rows
2 sets, 12 reps forward lunges with dumbbell curl
100 bicycle crunches
Circuit 3
2 min running @ 6.0
2 sets, 12 reps dumbbell chest flys
2 sets, 12 reps lateral lunges with upright rows
25 dumbbell crunches
25 Roman twists
25 reverse crunches
25 knees-to-chest

5 min cool down walk & stretch.
