Slim in 6 for the Holidays Challenge Week 5
The headache hasn't really been bothering me but I can feel myself tensing up around 6/7 pm, whether it's in the car or on the couch. I don't know what's going on. Since the first time taking the Flexeril I've been extra sleepy. You can take this muscle relaxer up to 3 times a day but I've only taken two a couple of times since I've been tired. We'll see what the doctor has to say in the morning.
I went to the dentist Friday (during the snow storm) for my first cleaning. Again the hygenist was surprised that my teeth looked so good even though it's been so long since I've been to a dentist. The only teeth with a tartar build up were those at my lingual bar (the wire glued to the back side of my lower front teeth as a bottom retainer). This is because it's so hard to get anything through there to floss. She gave me some samples to try but I don't know if it'll work. Everytime I try something it works for a while then the floss starts shredding or breaking. My lower teeth are just too tight!
My weight dropped 2.2 lbs, wiping out the gain of the past two weeks and then some! I'm now just 2 lbs shy of losing 60 lbs this year. I'd be happy to just maintain that through the holidays and then start losing again in January.
After pretty much burning the same amount of calories (417-419) all week I shocked myself with how much I burned Friday!
Trying to decide what workout to do next. I don't really want to start a new program over the holidays so I'll be mixing things up after this final week of the challenge. We'll see what I get for Christmas and go from there.
It was pretty quiet with the challenge group this week. One reported a slight gain over Thanksgiving but it was much less than she normally sees. The others didn't chime in with how they did so I can only assume either there were gains or they didn't weigh themselves this week.
Most of the jello is gone from Austin's Minecraft Cake. I've been nibbling the cake almost every night this week; it's still so moist! Perhaps I'm just craving sugar.... I don't remember if Austin ate any of the cake this weekend.
This week I was selected as a co-host for the Countdown in Style hop. Be sure to enter your favorite post (not a giveaway or other linkup) to be featured on Homemaking with Style or 100lb Countdown this Friday!
