One pound to the zombies

Scale day, and I lost one pound, which means I lost the pound I gained back last week and I’m back where I was two Fridays ago. I can live with that, I guess. I would have liked more, but I didn’t really do anything to make that happen. Zero tracking and I only used the treadmill once, since I found really creative reasons not to get on it every other morning.

Like this morning. I’m exhausted because I spent my entire night battling sneaky-smart ninja zombies in my sleep. But I figure an entire night of waking, tossing, sleeping, waking, turning, sleeping, waking, and so on probably burned more calories than the treadmill, anyway. That’s probably where that lost pound went.

How’d you guys do this week?

    I held steady. Considering my non-motivation in this realm, and considering that I’m trying to finish this book’s draft before the 15th, that’s a win.

    Great job on the pound!

    I stayed the same despite doing the same things that netted a 2.5 loss last week! I’ll never figure this out! lol

    I am determined to lure myself to the exercise bike by using it as reading time. Hasn’t exactly worked yet.

    Holding steady is not a bad thing!

    I haven’t been on the treadmill yet this week. *sigh* I’m not so good at this exercise thing, but I think, if I don’t, I’m going to be stuck on this plateau for a while.
