SFC: Week Eleven

My positive picture for the week:

I recently found this old picture of me.

I must be 3 or 4 here. Did ballet and tap - this was from my first recital. Too cute!

What have you done this past week to help you achieve your goals?
(1) I did it! Weighed in Friday at 199 pounds.
(3) I biked 10 miles, for a challenge total of 205 miles (or 93.2% of my goal).
(5) I completed goal #46 (Go on my first second date).
(7) Got a few more rejection letters, applied for a few more jobs. *sigh* It feels a lot like treading water these days.

What did you do this past week to make you feel good about yourself?
I am trying to be really good with money these days, but my dad sent me some money as a surprise. I put most of it in my savings and spent $13 of it on the cutest little sundress that was on clearance at Target! I hope it gets warmer out again soon so I can actually wear it!

With one week left, what is your plan?
Just keep on keepin' on, I guess. I have 15 miles to bike, a few plans for my New Things, and every day I actively work on my plan for what steps I'm taking next professionally.

What time of day are you most productive?
I think that all depends on what's being done. I try and keep busy all day, but for me, some times work better for certain activities than others. Workouts, I'm best at night. Blogging, after that. Reading and applying for jobs, first thing in the morning. Errands, midday. Chores around the house, it varies - dishes in the morning, laundry at night.

Are you reading a book right now? If so, share! If not, what was the last good book you read?
I'm working on "Breaking Free from Emotional Eating" by Geneen Roth. So, so, so, so good. And it's just what I need right now, because the job stress is making me increasingly anxious, and I'm fighting my urges to binge eat tooth and nail.

That picture is seriously the most ridiculously cute photo ever! I love the dramatic look in your face and your arms. Amazing.

I'm so excited about this second date! I hope it works out...much better than my terrible first first date post BU.

I wonder why you are having such powerful urges to binge right now.

Tried your method of thickening sauce with the tofu - did a sort of recipe knock off of your mac and peas. Really good. I did it in the cuisinart and whirred in some veggies.

Woohoo on date 2.

So many great things are happening for you. The job will come.
