Deep Breath

As I sit on my couch in our apartment, I feel like I'm taking my first deep breath in about the last 48-72 hours. I can hardly believe that tomorrow is Friday! I got to take the afternoon off work yesterday, Wednesday, and tomorrow I'll be off in the afternoon as well. I've been putting in long hours at work and I'm trying to limit my overtime hours.

We have not made it to the gym since Monday, but the plan is to work out tomorrow and Sunday. Next week may be a struggle to get to the gym again, it usally is on my "late week" at work. A "late week" is when I work 40 (sometimes 45) hours in 4 days, Monday through Thursday, and then I get all day Friday off. It always ends up being a struggle to work out once I get done with a 10-12 hour workday. Here is my proposal to try to keep myself accountable. I will be working out 10 minutes on my breaks, be it treadmill or elliptical, and then we will hit the gym 3 evenings. Likelihood is, we will work out Monday, Tuesday and Friday. So there! Now y'all know and you can help me to hold true to that goal.

My eating has been better the last couple days. I weighed in yesterday and I'm down a couple more lbs. (Disclaimer: I feel guilty for not telling y'all the number on the scale, however I do have a couple confidants who know my numbers and help to keep me honest there.) I had a Herbalife shake for breakfast yesterday and today. Not much for snacks either! Lunch today was Chipotle--don't remember what I had yesterday--and dinner both nights was salad. Tonight we are also having salmon and a glass of wine. I've gotten to that point where I actually enjoy feeling hungry too!

Well, signing off tonight. Hope y'all are making it through the week sane and in one piece.


  1. Proud of you--hope your weekend is awesome. You don't "owe" anyone are doing so much disclosure/accountability as is! Congrats on your weight loss, KB. You take care of so many--when we work out/ eat right we are better able to serve others. Go, KB, Go!
