A Warp Zone Weigh-In

Happy 2011! So, have you gotten in your two workouts yet? Have your meals been stellar?

I can honestly say that yes, I have gotten in two workouts, and while my meals could have been healthier, I am at least still happily on program.

Sunday is my new weigh-in day. How did I fare?

Well, I’m dubbing this week a Warp Zone Weigh-In.

Wanna know why?

‘Cause my weight went from 364.2 to 362.2! Over the past week, I have last two pounds, and I am considering that an ultra-huge, colossal victory. Permit me to get a bit geeky on you. You know how in Super Mario Brothers you can sometimes find warp tubes and they take you to the warp zone and you’re able to skip ahead worlds?

Well, I did that this week. Instead of waiting until January 1st like I have done so many years in the past, I decided to get on program December 26th to undo the holiday damage. Instead of putting on what could have been a LOT of weight, I chose to take a warp zone and I emerged January 1st two pounds lighter instead of two (or five… or ten) pounds heavier. Yay me!

I have recorded a video blog, as I promised I would do. I promise, these won’t all be done in the car, but I had a few minutes to myself while on the way to the gym so that’s when I did it.

I am really excited about the upcoming week. Because I work at a college, I’ve had the last two weeks off for Christmas. I’ve NEVER had two weeks off from work since I was a teacher in the public school system, so this was a pretty frickin’ sweet break. Still, I think I’m excited about going back to work. And even more than that, I think I’m excited about tearing it up at Weight Watchers again. This weigh-in may be a bit higher than I’d like, and that’s okay, because I did a LOT of damage over Christmas. It doesn’t matter, though, because I am repairing that damage.

I look forward to feeling myself get stronger with every workout I do. I look forward to feeling more flexible with every minute of yoga that I do. I look forward to getting healthier with every healthy food I put in my body.

As I go through the month of January, I plan to post regularly on various things (next post will be my experience in sprouting sprouts!), and I’m sure you’ll see me make mention of my resolutions. Since I plan to check up on them all year, I’m going to make a page here at Stellar Path JUST for my resolutions. If you’d like to check it out, just read this on my webpage and go to the top menu bar. If you are reading this on Google reader or some other blog reading tool, then you can check it out here.

I may mention these a LOT this year, but I want to stay motivated and on fire for these resolutions.

My Goals page will also probably get a lot of attention, and I’ll be sure to mention here whenever I change it. Just today, I added my section of Unlikely Goals. These are goals that, while I’d LOVE to get to do it, it just isn’t likely. For instance, I want to walk on the moon. It isn’t impossible. It’s not like I’m saying I want to travel in time. We have the technology to walk on the moon. It’s just that it is EXTREMELY unlikely that I will ever get to do so. Still, as I think of unlikely things I want to do, I’m sure I’ll add to the list.

Anyway, my reason for mention My Goals is that I’ve come a step closer to accomplishing one of my goals this year. I mentioned this in the video briefly. Tina and I want to find a church to join. We’re having a hard time finding what we want, and to be quite honest, in our frustration at not finding the church we wanted, we basically stopped trying for a while. A few days ago, we both agreed to try a new church near us called First Baptist. We loved it. We felt welcomed without being smothered and we enjoyed the pastor and felt he had a great message. Obviously, we aren’t going to join right away. We both want to attend for a pretty good while before we join, but being members of a church is something that is important to us and I’m very pleased that we’ve found a church that, at the very least, we are home in right now.

Oh, and one last thing. I have added a Facebook Badge up above. I’ve given SO much personal information about myself on this webpage, there really isn’t much point in having a Facebook page for Stellar Path any longer. To be perfectly honest, I have many more blogger friends on my personal Facebook than my page’s Facebook. So, if you’d like to follow(stalk) me in my personal life and catch up with my latest webpage updates, please, check me out! You can find my Facebook page here or click the badge in the upper left of my webpage.
