Day 70

I have a late meeting tomorrow and I can't attend my weekly meeting with my group, so I weighed in this afternoon. Drum roll..... 3.2 pounds lost (hopefully to never be found again) for a total of 36.6 pounds in 70 days. I am doing the happy dance.

I was too busy at work to day dream about the Y, but I did make it there after work and got in 420 burnt calories of physical activity. I can't explain how physical activity can reduce your stress level, but I like it. I find ...

Day 69

At work today I found myself wishing the work day was over. Not because of the "work," but because I really wanted to go to the Y. I love that place. I think I like it because it is such a stress reliever and I can zone out to a book, TV or music while working out. I still like walking and bike riding on cooler days, but I think I will really enjoy the Y this winter. Sarah Bush employees get a discount and I think it is a good investment in yourself.

After 69 days, I ...

Day 68

Last night after I posted, I felt like a had the Devil on one shoulder and an Angel on the other. The Devil was saying "Go ahead, have another HMR bar. The peanut butter and chocolate one will taste so good in your mouth. It will be so good that it will melt in your mouth. No one will know that you exceeded your daily limit. You deserve it. You have worked so hard this week. You deserve it. They owe it to you. You deserve it."

Thank goodness the Angel hit me up side the head and ...

Day 67

I wish keeping the dishes, laundry, dusting and cleaning in order was as easy and as quick as drinking my shakes. I have had a quiet, but productive day getting things caught up around the house. I have met all the requirements of my program.

This morning I went to the Y and worked out. There were a several people from the hospital there, so plenty of folks with which to visit. I got in 1.5 hours of physical activity so hopefully the scales with go to the left this coming week.

Trivia: Until 1796 there was ...

Day 66

Okay....I THINK I now like bras. I went to a bra shop and was fitted. My torture device is not in a bind, slipping, sliding, running over or requiring adjustments. I highly recommend if you and your bra have a poor relationship, go get fitted....one less thing to stress out about and you don't have to take off your clothes to get measured. The clerk Jacqueline was very nice.

In addition she listened to me, made suggestions and I felt like she was interested in helping me and not just making a sale. So basically ...
