To Stink or Not to Stink...That is the Question!

Running this morning?   That was the plan.   But it just wasn't happening.   My stomach was NOT right.    I contemplated the run.  I really did.  To reach my goals I really should have run this morning.  Due to schedules of course. (Work and prior obligations.)  But my stomach was just not feeling it.   In hindsight, it was the best decision, stomach aches and trips to the bathroom really don't mix well with a run!

I ate Chinese food LATE last night (9:30 or 10PM).  I ate too much Chinese food last night!

 I also barely got my minimum water consumption in.  I did it.   But barely!  What is my minimum for my projected water consumption?   I am aiming for at LEAST 64 ounces....but I've been getting closer to 120 ounces daily)

Scales were friendly to me this morning though.....We shall see....we shall see!

Meanwhile....I am sitting in that weird clothing size abyss between women's sizes and regular (non fat) sizes.   A size 16W is loose and baggy....a size 16 (not women's) is tight.   It's amazing how much of a difference the W makes on a clothing tag.  Just a few pounds more of weight loss and I will be out of the W's  and into regular size clothing ALL the time.   Just a few pounds more and I will be pulling out the bins of clothes that I have in storage.....a whole new wardrobe!  How fun!   

And as a side note....I forgot to put on deodorant this morning.  Really?   How in the world does one forget that????   So should I keep my arms extended at a 90 degree angle from my body to avoid any sweating and heat?   Or should I keep my arms plastered to my side to avoid any heated underarm smell from escaping?  What to do...what to do.  (I do think taking a walk on my lunch break may not be wise with this little issue though!)

No major epiphanies today....just plodding along with trying to turn this ship around after last week's experience of  eating junk and overage in my calories.

Try a 14W - might be the "in-between" you are needing until the 16 fits more comfortably. Best wishes! Deb

Ha!ha! Arms plastered to your side :)

I have been amazed by the "W" as well. I can wear a 16W but not a 16.

When I walked during my lunch break at work, I kept some good smelling mists sprays that I used to keep from smelling to 'fresh' afterwards. Even then, I was nervous about people coming in my office. Good luck with the no deodorant decision!!!

I manage to forget my deo and perfume all the time :(

Sizing is crazy at times! I never know what is going to work.

I've really struggled with underarm sweat lately. Not so much the stink (although it's there I'm sure) but the moisture! I try to change out of my bra/shirt after a workout, but I've developed quite the heat/friction rash. Painful! I just don't feel like my deodorant/antiperspirant is doing anything!

Same thing happened to me yesterday. Too much Hong Kong Noodles :). Totally worked it off this morning, or at least that's what I hope 60 minutes on the elliptical did.

For the sizing, how about going for a 14W. I'm sure that should work.

Is it sad that whenever someone mentions tummy troubles I think of what a good weigh in that will cause? hahaha.
