Week 3 Results- Game 3

My weight has done really weird things in the past week. When I (finally!) got home from Chicago, I was down 4.2 lbs from what I was when I weighed in last Monday. Then when I weighed in on Sunday morning, I was at exactly the same weight I was during last week's weigh-in. WTF?

It's insane how much my weight fluctuates. It's also really frustrating. The three of us who have been playing this game since August now (Katie & Cyrena too) have been struggling with staying at about the same weight. The time off between games clearly needs to be monitored a little better so that we're not going up and down and up and down.

Anyway, all of this to say that I was skeptical about this week's weigh-in. But am happy to say that I made goal- phew. Ended up losing 2.6 lbs.

The past week continued to be challenging since half of it was in Chicago. And I was determined to not use my meal or day off while I was there. I was dreaming about places back home that I wanted to eat at. So I prepared by making another visit to Whole Foods to stock up on food while I was there. And it helped that everyone around me knew what I was doing and helped in their own way.

It felt great to come back home and try and get back into a routine. I went to the gym the morning after I got back and ended up running for a mile and a half without stopping. Huge accomplishment for me and something that makes me really happy.

When I think of the "old me", I always go back to when I was running in high school. It's hard to imagine that I used to go out for a quick six-mile run (and enjoy it) without any difficult. I'm not sure if my goal is to get back to that exactly, but I do want to be in such good shape that running is more enjoyable. And just over 30 lbs lighter, it feels that way.

We're in the last week of this game and as much as I'm looking forward to the game being over, and even wishing it didn't go through next Monday (Christmas is going to be challenging and I have more traveling), I recognize that this is when I need to be on game the most. I have no doubt that otherwise, I would eat my way through New York City.

So instead, I'll be playing the game for one more week and hoping like hell that I go out strong! So far I have perfect points, which is rad, because if I can keep that up (which I WILL), then I'm guaranteed to get $150 for the player with the most points. And it's looking like our team will be the winning team, which is another $100. I hope I'm not getting ahead of myself, but I'm digging these rewards!

The game continues to work for me!
