Week 2

I finally got all of my belongings from Utah into my apartment in LP.  I started the drive to Burlington around 12:30 on Friday and ended up getting back around 8:30.  I was so tired that I didn't move anything Friday night.  Saturday I got up really early (4:30) and moved all my stuff into my apartment before 8am.  I was really glad I did that because it started raining not too soon after I was done.  Moving all by yourself is NOT recommended.  I am so sore and so bruised that I could barely move the rest of the weekend.  I got mostly unpacked but I am short some furniture (couch, dining table/chairs) so as the year goes along I hope to fill in my apartment.  I am going to have a guest room so as soon as I get a bed you can all come visit me  and have a place to sleep!

I did meet my goal this week!  So far so good.  I will keep you posted!

Week 1 (sorta)

The sorta in the title refers to it not actually being a full week since I decided to go all out/hardcore into this journey.  Being the Type A personality that I am--I like things to be regular and since I knew I wanted to weigh in for the rest of the journey on Monday mornings (it just seems like the start of the week to me--probably all that school!)  I had to weigh in this morning.  That being said I didn't have high hopes for this first week because (1) I started halfway through the week; (2) in typical Haley fashion I gave myself a few treats on Monday and Tuesday that were definitely detrimental to the goal; (3) All of my earthly belongings were sent to Chicago so I couldn't move my things into my apartment this weekend--which I was counting on for some serious calorie burning and instead turned into a few too many calories in because I was mad and upset.  Needless to say this morning I was not to stoked to step on that scale and to my utter surprise I lost 4.5 pounds!

So I made my goal week 1 of losing weight.  I wasn't as successful as I would like to be with the treats so that is the goal this week.  Less treats more hikes--and hopefully when I get all my things on Friday I can get into a regular schedule--just in time to fly to Colorado Springs for National Team Camp!
