Small Steps to Big Changes: Week 8

Submitted by Bethany on Sun, 03/03/2019 - 10:00

Reading: 17/52 (+3 for the week) I read a real book this week! Check out my book list post to see what I'm reading. I would have probably had three read this week as I was planning to read a lot on the plane from England to France, but I ended up sitting next to a lady who chatted with me the whole time. Ah well, I think I'll have plenty of time to read in France as we are quite rural with not much else to do!

Language: 23270 XP (+600 for the week) Can you believe that the week we move to France is the week I do the least amount of French learning? Go figure. The app made a change that I don't like - it costs lingots (game money) to test out of levels now, which I'll admit has turned me off to Duolingo a bit. That coupled with a friend in town for a few days then the chaos of packing up and moving to a new country, and I lost my streak!


Starting Weight: 266
Current Weight: 233.75
Weekly Change: +0.5
Total Change: -32.25
First Goal Weight: 180 
Pounds to lose until goal: 53.75

Ok so the scale went another half a pound in the wrong direction this week, which sucks. However, it was a rough week what with splurging on some final English delicacies before we left, emotional eating with the wreck that was GC 2019, and then traveling, so I'm calling a half a pound gain a win. (In the past I could have easily eaten my way to a 3-5 pound gain in a week). Now that we are getting settled in a new place I'm ready to get back on track with fresh veggies and regular workouts, so we'll see what changes I can bring about by next week! I'm still shooting for that below 230 number, but it is being elusive as it has in year's past! But it will be mine!

XOXO, Bethany
