Monday Schmonday

Weekends aren't long enough. But I don't suppose anybody ever says, "I hate weekends! Bring on Monday!" Oh well, no since bitching about it. Everybody has to do Mondays.

I didn't cheat on Friday night and eat a chili-cheese burger. It paid off because when I weighed this morning, it showed that I'd lost another pound......202! I can almost see the 100's again! It's just within reach. I didn't know until I started reading weight loss blogs that the 100's are referred to as "Onderland". It's been a while since I've been to Onderland. I'll say it's been at least one and half to two years since I've been there. I'm ready to get there!

I walked last night to Furman again (4+ miles). If it weren't for the heat, it wouldn't be a bad walk at all. My body isn't hurting like it was when I first started walking. My goal this week is to walk 20 miles. That means I need to walk that route every night through Thursday. I hope that the rain stays away and allows me to do it.

Not that I was ever a great housekeeper, but my house isn't staying as clean since I started all this. I simply don't have time to do it all. Something has to give, and it's housework! Perhaps I need to learn to manage my time better. It's starting to get on my nerves. Don't get me wrong....I am not a clean freak by any means. Sometimes you just can't live in filth/clutter any longer!


  1. Good for you for losing another lb over the weekend. That's not always an easy accomplishment (OK for me it isn't).

    I wondered what Onderland meant - now I know. I first saw Onderland in November/08 and the last time before that was 8 years ago. Then when I saw an 1 and an 8 I just about freaked... mind you, it has stayed in the high 18X for the last 3.5 months :(

    You are well on your way ! Keep up the excellent work.

  2. Congrats on the loss - you're so close to Onederland!

  3. Hey Dawn, I just caught up with all your posts. You're doing great and I think you'll be in Onderland before you know it! Be safe out in the heat while you're's been hella hot lately!

    Btw, whenever I lost weight, I weighed myself everyday and I also felt that it was motivating. Do what works for YOU! XOXO

  4. So close! You'll be there before you know it. And I just loved the celebration you had with your doggies. :-D I have often posted the bit about the study where the women who weighed every day lost more. One gal had posted about it, I think it was in a Cooking Light magazine.
