morning weight: 273 lbs
I am in as much shock as you. Another pound. I weighed 5 times, about 2 minutes apart, just to make sure I was a. awake and b. not suddenly in need of glasses. This is quite an after-TOM whoosh. I will credit water for this. And exercise.
I was just intending to write about my workout last night, but now it feels extra special.
I had my personal best on the treadmill last night.
70 minutes - 3 miles - heart max 145 - 700 calories burned
That extra 10 minutes really helped. I set the hill routine again. I can't believe I can say I like it. I really like it. It helped to be watching a fast-paced show (My Own Worst Enemy).
And it looks like I'm taking off the week of Thanksgiving from work because my staff will all be gone between Christmas and New Year's and I will have to be around then so I get to take off now. Also a good time to get some planning done when the office is quiet before the New Year so I don't mind. Seems I'll be alone again anyway.
I will go see my Mom, who I have to tell you, hopes to be well enough to be motor-scootering around Foxwoods casino - all at my brother-the-motivator's planning! Just the thought that she is even thinking and anticipating something in her future is amazing. She used to say she'd rather be dead than drive one of those motorized carts around, but I guess she's come to see that if she compromises she can still have something she enjoys.
I wonder if I can learn that lesson. Will I ever be able to compromise and having something I enjoy? Right now it seems all or nothing. But I had years of wallowing in what I enjoyed, so I must remember that. And strive for moderation in the future.
I hope we all have a great day Tuesday.
