is it really Wednesday again?

I can't get the image out of my head. With another few yoga poses unlocked on my Wii Fit (my current choice of exercise tool as I'm streaming with hayfever in spite of being on the top class of antihistamines. Any intention of jogging has been thwarted for the foreseeable future) I attempted the shoulder stand. I did not like what I saw. When hubby broke out into uncontrollable laughter at the sight of me, I couldn't but join him, if for different reasons: Suddenly, all that baby flabber that I'm reasonably proud of and happy with followed the new rules of gravity and threatened to make it's way towards my face and possibly drown/choke me. Scary. I'm not so sure why he laughed though.

No more shoulder stands for me.

Considering I had 2 really busy weeks (work - did I tell you I met the Secretary of State for Scotland this morning? update to follow soon - and Cubling taking her sense of independence and self and ownership one level up), I hope that 2 1/2 hours of total exercise will be complemented by constant mad chicken style pose (yoga masters watch out) to make up my 3 1/2 hour a week pledge. On the food front I've been good - lots of leaves, occasional tiny weeny cakes and a wee stress busting naughty day (read: chocolate) today. One big family meal. Admittedly, I've had a few glasses of red wine. My excuse: They were very much needed.

I cheated for the weigh in because I was in need of seeing success. I weighed myself before breaky in the morning, rather than the usual evening spot. My weight loss is therefore potentially not there, but after the last two weeks of constant go go go, I couldn't bear to have a zero in front of me. I'm also still struggling with conversion because as far as measurements of any kind are concerned I'm still firmly continental - Wii Fit tells me I have another 10lbs to go, but my calculation here states 8lbs. I'm confused. Maybe I should just stick to kg and stop converting. On the other hand counting in kg shows up even more slowly. Argh. The sums don't add up.

starting weight 164 lbs

weight last week 161 lbs

weight this week 158 lbs

gained/lost: 3 lbs

target weight: 68kg/ 150lbs (minimum) 65kg / 143lbs ideally.

how much to go 8lbs (15lbs ideally)

Go me!
