Chapter 2 page 541–Weekly recap, sorta

So .  . . this isn’t going to be my normally scheduled recap.  Why not?  Great question – glad you asked!

For starters – I’ve been for the past week with a respiratory infection that makes me sound like a Bull Moose with Bronchitis (according to my husband – I’m sure he meant it with love).  Kids – this is not just a little coughy cough – NOPE!  This is a C.O.U.G.H!  My husband has been awesome – he ran to the store to get more Nygil and cough drops and has let me pretty much sleep every minute I’ve not been at work.  So working out – yeah, that didn’t happen.  And yes, those are used tissues tucked under my chin (sooo pathetic, isn’t it).


Next, I did something different with my calorie counting.  I lowered my daily calorie allotment by 500.  I have very little intent to adhere to the new low, but it gives me a little wiggle room whereas before, I had to meet my daily allotment in order to loose 1 pound a week – NOW, anything less than my previous allotment is bonus and will result in more than a pound of weight loss.  Make sense?  Anyway I have amazing news to report . . . I lost 3 more pounds . . . so, I’m saying the new strategy is working.  Yay!

Finally, I’m going to be doing a post in the next few days (we’ll see how much longer this cough lasts . . . it’s putting me in a very bad mood – can you imagine me with a prolonged bad mood?) about some “victories” I’ve experienced in the past 6 weeks.  I’m really excited about it and well, I just know you’ll be eager to read that post too (okay, maybe not, but I’m excited to share it with you). 

How was your week?  Thumbs up or Thumbs down?

Have you been “stricken” with any seasonal illnesses this winter (or Summer as it happens to be Down Under)?


  1. Yay for your weightloss! I need your willpower! Feel better soon!

  2. Sorry you aren't feeling well! Hope you feel better soon... Congrats on the weight loss, your willpower is awesome. I have been struggling alot the last few weeks, probably have gained 5-10 pounds back (too scared to get on the scale).

    Keep it up, you are rocking it! :)

  3. Oh feel better! I got sick and was out of it for a long two weeks! Can't wait to hear the victories! Great job on 3 lbs.

  4. great weight loss and I hope you start feeling better soon.

  5. Way to go on the weight is a bummer it has to be related to being sick! Hope you feel better soon!

  6. My poor friend! I'm so sorry to hear that you weren't feeling well. Hugs! I hope you are well enough to hang with me Saturday.

  7. Ugh! So sorry you are sick! Rest up so you can get back to kicking butt on the workout front!
    Congrats on the weight loss as well, glad to hear you are making so much progress. Can't wait to hear about your other victories as well!
