Thanksgiving was wonderful. We all met up at my Aunt's house for a lovely meal and fellowship. I ate one plate of all the things I wanted and I didn't feel guilty about it. I did not go back for seconds and I had a small slice of the two pieces. The guys played a game of risk and there was a puzzle to work on too. We ended the day with a little more time at my moms house.
Friday we slept in and then decided to go do a little shopping. We didn't leave the house until about 9am so by the time we got to the store it was pretty normal. No craziness to be had. We went to Big Lots where we found some packs of batteries for $5 with a $5 mail in rebate so they are going to be free. Woohoo. We also found a blow up penguin to go on the lawn for Christmas. Then we went to Target. Target was a little busier than normal and there were quite few people in the electronics section and 2-day bin areas, but other than that nothing special. We ate some lunch and the rest of the day was lounging around.
But, by the end of the day I started to feel a little off. TMI the rest of this paragraph. By about 9pm I was sick with flu like symptoms. I was like that until about 6am. (on and off) Two times during that time I felt as if I was going to pass out. It was no fun at all. I spent all of Saturday on the couch just feeling blah. Saturday night my son was sick. It passed pretty quickly in comparison to mine and wasn't as severe, but man it was no fun.
So, after reading that last paragraph you will know why my weight is what it is.
Last week: 224.2
This week: 220.6
Loss this week: 3.6 pounds
I really like seeing the lower number, but to bad it had to come at the price of me feeling bad. I'm not sure if all of it will keep this week, but we will see.
I haven't tried on my CDCC skirt or shirt yet, but I don't plan on doing it until the end of the challenge. My water intake hasn't been the greatest the last couple of days. I did read a little more in my book and I left comments on everyone's blog this past week.
I hope we all finish these last few weeks of the challenge strong because even when the challenge is over we still have work to do and have to keep striving to reach our goals. Have a great week everyone.
