I’m back on a regular schedule for weigh-ins and for consultations again. And… I’m down again!
Down -0.4 lbs.
Not my BEST weigh-in, but at least I went down! Now, it’s just me and 21.6 lbs… I can do this. I’ve got a crazy week this week, and I haven’t really mentioned it to you guys yet…. but I’m going back.
Intercontinental Montelucia Resort and Spa in Scottsdale
I leave on Saturday morning for a quick getaway with my friend Donna to our VERY FAVORITE PLACE. This is my SECOND trip there for the year, and THIRD overall. I honestly never get sick of this place. It’s just that great. Last time we were there, we met up with one of my co-workers. He was telling us we should try one of the other spa resorts…. Nope. I don’t think I ever will. I just love the Montelucia that much.
I also am so appreciative of the fact I travel as much as I do for work… it makes trips like this totally possible. Thanks, Frontier Early Returns miles, for sponsoring this trek to the desert!
Unfortunately, the weather will be a little cooler than normal when we’re there. Rather than being in the 80s like it was in the end of April, it will be a high of the 70s. I’m not sure how much pool time we’ll have, but I bet we bake in the sun a little – – just for funsies.
The other thing that we’re planning on is using the fitness facilities and working out a bit. Donna tried to get me to climb Camelback Mountain last time we were there and I wasn’t really up to it. Considering that the pool time will be limited anyway, I MAY try to do it this time. We’ll see….
After writing yesterday’s post about my first year on Jenny and after maintaining this blog for a whole year, I did something CRAZY. I decided to post a link to my blog on Facebook. Yep, I totally went public.
For any of you who blog, you know what a big deal this is. I had sent the link to a few of my close friends and even some of my family…. but I haven’t really told many at work or elsewhere that I blog. In the past, I’d worried about what people would think, but I’ve finally hit the point where I just don’t care. It’s pretty stinkin’ impressive to have lost 70 lbs… and I can’t dwell on the fact that I had 70 lbs to lose.
Here’s the COOLEST part: The response was AMAZING. So warm and so inspiring. I seriously expected one or two people to read it… and the rest to just go back to playing Farkle, but SO many people have stopped by. I even got a few email from folks trying to lose who shared their struggle. I feel so pleasantly surprised that this “little blog that could” could cause such a reaction.
While I’ve loved traveling this journey with so many of you who’ve found me online or via Jenny Craig, I’m super-excited that Chapter 2 (AKA Year 2) in this journey also includes navigating the world of weight-loss with some people from my real life. It makes it all even more real and the accountability just jumped up significantly (which I need these days.)
Whether it’s your first time stopping by or your 101st, we’re all in this together, and let’s get SUPER healthy during year 2!
