Oh what a weekend!
I helped my brother and family clean trash and debris from the banks of the Grand River in canoes on Saturday!!! I'm not sure where I burned the most calories, from rowing, trying to pry our canoe off rocks or from jumping up and down screaming like a little girl from the silver dollar sized spiders that were attacking me!!! Total burn... 1,500 calories! Totally worth every ounce of pain that I endured. Sunday I was a little achy, but today I feel like I do every other day.
Less than two weeks till the next weigh-in and I'm doing everything I can to get "unstuck". The scale is bouncing up and down between a couple of pounds. I just want the numbers to bounce DOWN. I swear my body is saying "Hey, I like you just the "weigh" you are!" And the carb cravings... oy! I'm switching up my diet to not have any junky breads or pasta or chips whats-so-ever and my body is going into shock. It's all a little mental game that our brains think is funny. Well this gal ain't laughing...
