Whoa! Another Pound!
I lost a pound overnight! Holy cow. I was hopeful that the plateau was simply over; I never expected a whoosh. YAY. I was 311.8 this morning. Once again, I weighed myself four times just to be sure. ;)
I just found out I'm going to be in Bloomington, IL for work next week. I won't be anywhere near Chicago (boo), but I'll be helping with training for the new teams. I'm so excited! It's hard to believe I was in training school down there just a couple years ago, and now I'm helping as a trainer. I love teaching, and I'm so happy and grateful I was given this opportunity.
Two weeks later, I'll be in Indianapolis doing the same thing. I've never been to Indianapolis, other than driving through, so that's kind of cool.
I'm trying to make lists of low-carb foods I can bring with me since I don't want to eat out every day and can't really cook a lot in a microwave. I do get a mini-fridge, so I can bring lunch meats, cheese, and other perishables. Brent said he'll show me how to cook scrambled eggs in the microwave, even though that sounds kind of nasty. :-/ But I could put them in a little dish with some shredded cheese and sausage crumbles, and that would be pretty good. I wish I liked hard-boiled eggs. I can bring string cheese and Greek yogurt to class, though, since I'm mostly running the PowerPoint and answering occasional questions.
The hotel has a fitness center, so I might try out the elliptical if nobody is in there watching. I'm convinced I'm going to fall on my face. The movement looks so awkward, but maybe I'll love it. They also have treadmills and a weight machine, so I can always hop over to the treadmill if I fail at the elliptical.
I'm most excited about the pool. I LOVE SWIMMING. This is going to feel more like a vacation than work. ;)
