Four months ago I thought it would be impossible to hit 200lbs by 5/28. And here I am, two days before, and ten pounds lighter than that seemingly impossible goal.
2014 has been good to me so far.
Of course, with my birthday will come with eating out, and cake. Mmm, cake. The celebration will take place the day after my birthday, for convenience, but I'm considering indulging a bit on the day itself, as well; it's been ages since I had chicken strips and jojo potatoes from the Safeway deli, and I've been having a hankering lately. xD Two days of indulgence aren't going to throw me too far off track, as long as I don't OVER-over-do it, haha.
In work-related news, I've so far managed to keep my top spot in the step tracking competition. But my supervisor, the cheater, left Thursday for 4 days of backpacking out in the country - despite managing 206k steps last week, I have a feeling I'm not going to be able to compete with that, alas. Well, the results will be in on Wednesday - but however it turns out, I'm intending to push myself even harder this week - the overall top spot shall be mine, even if I don't make it first one week. (Not that the prize for winning is all that spectacular - it's a little UNDERwhelming, actually. xD But it's the winning part that's most important, amirite?)
I'm definitely looking forward to the 1st of June, though. It's going to be soooo nice to just get home from work and kick back without having to worry about getting so many steps in. My poor overworked legs are going to be thankful for the reprieve - my thigh muscles have been on the sore side. I've been having to take a walking break in the middle of my jog (which is going to be a daily thing this week, alas) for a few minutes, because around the 2.5mi mark my legs start to feel like lead weights. I've been pushing myself too hard, but I need lots of mileage to keep up with my supervisor (who is EXTREMELY athletic), and jogging is the only way to get those miles in a get back home in a reasonable amount of time. Yes, definitely looking forward to taking rest days in between jogs and looong walks again.
