That's What I'm Talking About

A much better weigh in today. I think last week was all about sodium and hormones. Can't blame everything on hormones, but without a doubt they cause a bit of a weight jump every month.

I found out yesterday that I'm going to be having some big deadlines coming up at work during the holidays, which I knew about, but they're all moved up a week or two earlier than I'd anticipated. Gotta love a challenge. But this is real life, and weight loss has to just work around it, right? It'll mean some early morning workouts, which are definitely not my forte. I'm an after work-workout kind of girl. First thing in the morning always seems like a good idea until I don't want to get out of bed. And then I do it and I'm perky afterwards until around 2 or 3 in the afternoon when I just want to take a big ol' nap from getting up so early. I also love evening workouts because I'm a nighttime eater - I used to binge like crazy from the moment I'd get home until when I went to bed. Heading to the gym before I go home helps tame my appetite and shortens the evening so it's just dinner, time with hubby, and bed. Works well for me! Anyway, needless to say that I will survive the next month and a half, it just might get a little bumpy. Nothing new around the holidays!


  1. I just read your post about Crunching the Numbers. I too have difficulty reading that blog. It is not so much the struggle itself, because I can witness an honest struggle. It is the apparent disconnect between the truly awful nature of the food consumed and the blogger's awareness of it. I say apparent because I do not know what is going through her head. I only started to follow her recently so I do not know what her diet was like on the "way down". I hope she makes it out of this. It is painful to watch.

  2. Good morning Maude. Thank you for stopping by and your words of advice. Maybe today is a day off day. I don't know, it just feels like cheating something I want so badly but I'm also feeling so yucky. Oh well this too shall pass.
    Good luck with all the upcoming deadlines and challenges. I know that you can do it. I have big faith in you girl.
    You take care and have a blessed day today.
