This, That, And The Other Thing

I didn’t get in all the exercise I had hoped to today. The evening in particular just got really busy all of a sudden and the workout video I had planned on doing fell by the wayside. I think that has been happening more and more lately; I really need to make the activity more of a priority. It isn’t that I am not working out, because I am! I just think that I should be able to fit more of it in like I was back when I started this blog. Given the flexibility of my schedule right now, I know that I can do better than just a half hour of exercising.

This past week, my food intake has got me totally confused. The first three or four days I felt like I was too munchy, and now the past few lists show that I have been eating less than I normally do. My guess is that my body is trying to balance itself out, but I just feel a little off my routine right now. My biggest concern is that the scale has been up from Saturday’s weigh-in every day so far and I am back to wondering if I will be noting the end of my losing streak in a couple of days. I know that I am probably due, but I would really love to keep seeing the downward trend I have maintained thus far.

Teaser: Do you know why I am looking forward to tomorrow?

- 9 glasses of water
- 1 banana
- 1 wrap on a soft tortilla shell with deli ham, chicken breast, cheese, dried cranberries, spinach, fat free Miracle Whip, mustard, and pepper
- 3 1/2 cups spinach salad with cheese, croutons, dried cranberries, red pepper, mushrooms, and calorie-wise Greek feta and oregano dressing
- 1 homemade dark chocolate cranberry walnut cluster
- 2 cups grapes

- 35 minutes of the C25K program (Day 2 of Week 6)


  1. Hmmmm...not sure what's going on tomorrow...what's up?

  2. Because our own 266 is carrying the torch for the Para Olympic Games!?!?!?!?!?!?!??! Did I get this one right, since I failed miserably on your TRICK creative lies. :)

  3. Yes, I would say it's torch time!!!
    Don't worry about the scale - I'm sure you'll get back to losing mode.

  4. ...looking forward to it being Friday and the start of the weekend.

  5. You are too cryptic for me! I'll have to see what tomorrow brings.

  6. I am always pointing to horomones at my age,
    :-), but they effect women at all ages so just wondering if your hormones are off with all the stuff going on that you are writing about.

    Hang in there. Our bodies do adjust as we get fitter & healthier & lighter. You can do it!

  7. Your trend is ridiculous though, I've never seen anyone that consistent, so it has to end sometime. Plus you are getting down to that weight where it's probably gonna get tougher to lose.

    Thanks for the advice the other day.

  8. Awww... sweet comments, people! Dawne and Jenn, you are right on the money!!!
