mythicalgirl: (nap time)

My new desktop was finally built out and brought up to my desk Wednesday about mid-day. And thankfully the thing seems to be working just fine (wood....I need wood to knock on).

The last couple of days have been a mad dash to finish setting up the new PC and get as much work done as possible as I am way behind.  On the plus side I'm pretty much done setting up the PC.  On the minus, well, despite getting a metric shitload of work done the last two days I also picked up three more projects.  And I'm still behind.  There was an IM from a project manager yesterday asking when I'd have certain code to the tester.  I was a bit testy by then and told her she was not first, nor second, but third on my list; it would likely be Monday before I even knew when I'd get to her stuff; in the meantime go away - I'll let you know when I have something to share.  I know she didn't mean anything by it - she has her job to do too - but by that point I'd been asked "when will I get my stuff" so often I was ready to scream. 

There will be work again this weekend although I'm not sure yet how much.  I have 3 more hours today before I go hit the gym and it really depends on how productive I manage to be in that time. 

In other news I am at the end of my first 6-week weight loss period - weighed in last night at a very solid 205.  At my lowest during the 6 weeks I was about 203.  I gained some weight back last week with some indiscriminate munching and lady-cycle related water retention.  The bloating seems to be correcting itself and I've worked off some of what the munchies left behind.  All this means I met my first short-term goal of 5 pounds in 6 weeks.  YAY!  The next 6-week has now started with the goal of being 200 (or lower) by 5/27. 

Now I must get back to work as I would like to enjoy at least some of my weekend.

I weighed in last night after my workout.  I expected to find myself up a pound or so what with the water retention and munchies that came along with my monthly cycle over the weekend.  I am delighted to report that I was wrong and actually lost another pound to put me squarely at 205. 

This, my friends, means that I have met my first goal of 5 pounds in 6 weeks.  To be technical I did 5 lbs in 3.5 weeks. 
I am not restarting the clock though.  I'm going to keep going until I reach the end of this 6-week stretch.  the goal now is to keep those 5 pounds off and (hopefully) lose more. 

Yes, I am quite the happy little mythicalgirl at the moment.  Still under way too much stress, of course, but happy!

I lost two pounds in the last week. 

(Yes, I know I had a stomach flu thing Monday and Tuesday and barely ate those days.  Don't bring logic into this, OK?)
mythicalgirl: (H is for Holy crap)
I've lost six pounds. 

I know that isn't much especially when you consider how much I weigh (no, I'm not telling).  But I'm still totally geeked that I've lost anything at all. 

Bringing breakfast and lunch to work with me has definitely helped, I'm sure.  I'm looking forward to the time when I get to go shopping for new clothes!  Here's hoping the next 6 don't take another 4 months to come off!
