Y2, W8, Day 1: Weigh Day

I had fun dressing up for an Oscar party on Sunday.
Yup, it's Tuesday, good ole' weigh day.  I can smile this week too because the scale said 196.4, putting me down -1.6 and getting me back on track.  I feel really good about this loss and it's more than I deserve considering last Friday's food antics and a really fun Oscar party on Sunday night.  So, woohoo!

I worked on my jogging this morning and I'll do it again later this week.  I do have to say that it's not nearly as much fun to jog at the gym (though it is easier to measure pace and timing) as it is outside.  One of the things I really like about the jogging idea is the opportunity to experience nature and be outside.  One thing I've noted this year is that I really am happier outdoors.  I feel more at peace and less in need of sugar.  It's part of why I enjoy being out in the garden.  I step outside to dig around for a few minutes and hours fly by without my feeling hungry.  I'm pretty sure I'll go for another jog along the creek this weekend.  I want to enjoy the last few blossoms before they fade away (not that I don't enjoy the fresh green leaves that follow too).  

So here's to starting a new week and being successful.  I'm still hungry most of the time and I'm really wishing that would fade away like the blossoms since it's not nearly as lovely, but I'll just keep taking it day by day.  


  1. I said it Sunday night and I'll say it again... (with my Billy Crystal accent) You....look.....mahvalous!

  2. love that dress on you, and glad this was a good weight week!
