Another quick post for my weigh in because class is about to start! I really should start writing these posts on Tuesday night but I never know what I'm going to say!
First and foremost -- I MADE IT TO ONDERLAND! I barely squeaked by but I'm here and that's all that counts!
Last week: 200.8
This week: -199.4
Total Loss: 36.8
Yesterday I posted the following picture on Instagram. There is only about an 18 pounds different between the far left and the far right but I see a difference the scale cannot capture -- all in a year! The girl on the right has run 2 half marathons and found a love for exercise. She still loves pizza and peanut butter, but with portion control and a healthy dose of fruits and veggies.
My workout from last night in case you want fresh ideas (I try to publish more of my workouts - I like to mix it up!).
Meal prepped and ready for a very long day of class - pictured here is a TON of veggies, strawberry cheesecake yogurt (I'm eating some dairy again), spaghetti squash with pesto, and buffalo shredded chicken breast. So basically nothing goes together :) There may be a slice of pizza in there somewhere today because I'm attending two non-lecture presentations at lunch time and dinner time. May have to treat myself just a little bit!
Anyone else take an entire suitcase of stuff with them in the morning? I have at least two bags with me - plus a lunch bag. Today is a special day because our med school class was challenged by Indiana University School of Medicine to do the Ice Bucket Challenge for ALS.
I know people are getting sick of seeing the videos on their newsfeed and whatever - but I think it's brilliant! At first I didn't really get the concept when it was super new but I think it's important to remember that the end result is positive - I don't know why there needs to be negativity. ALS (amylotrophic lateral sclerosis) is a disease we learned about in my Neuro block last semester. It is an absolutely heart breaking disease - and it also gets very little awareness or research. No cure, no treatments beyond supportive therapy, and you basically become a prison in your own body - the course of the disease varies but it involves rapidly progressive muscle weakness and atropy. Think of everything you need and use those muscles for - movement, speaking, swallowing, etc. I think it's wonderful that they have raised so much money already and even if you don't know very much about the disease, people ARE becoming more aware and may go learn more!
That's all for me!
Are/have you done the Ice Bucket Challenge?
