I decided if the co-workers ask me directly what I think about their diet, or if they tell me directly "I've lost XXX pounds in one week!" THEN I will say something. But just overhearing them talk about, it, I'm not going to butt in. No one likes a know-it-all.
Another busy week, although I'm grateful for it: Monday I worked from home w/my son because he had some days off school. I love working from home once in a while. I kinda wish I could do it once a week again, like I used to about 5 years ago.
Because it's EIGHTY DEGREES around here lately, I'm thinking a lot about my yard (and how terrible it looks). I really hope to pretty it up this spring. I want new planters, new plants, and maybe some new paint or stain for the deck. Hope I'll be able to make all of that happen!! I am ususally pretty bad about not prioritizing tasks like that. On one hand, it's good -- I don't let myself get bogged down with things that aren't really important. On the other hand, if it would make me feel good, I should do it -- and this WOULD make me feel good.
I've been slightly hungry for a week and a half but I'm hoping that means I'm doing this right. Doing pretty well keeping calories in-range. Woo hoo!
It's a running day - I need it!! I'm on W6D3 -- 25 minutes running. Don't know if I'll make it, but I'm going to give it a shot!!

It's been a good week, calorie-range and calorie-burning-wise. Hooray! I needed a good week. Today's meatless Friday, woo hoo! Black bean burrito, here I come!
Can't stay too long (I've already been on longer than I should, since I GAVE UP doing this for Lent, ha!), but I do want to be faithful and track stuff, and just wanted to post that I'm happy today and hoping for a loss on the scale when I weigh in -- maybe tomorrow? maybe Monday? I'll be sure to let you know!
Thx to everyone for their support on my last blog post!! You guys are great friends.
Stay motivated, do your ten minutes, and have a great weekend!

Yesterday I was in such a foul mood. No need to wonder why -- I haven't been doing my cardio. To be fair, I did have a cold again, and was home with a sick kid, but still. There's no excuse. Back at it this week.
I'm also SO sick of having calorie counts in my brain. I haven't been good about tracking since I've been "off" the SP site for Lent, but I still basically KNOW the number of calories in something, and I wish I didn't. I hate that when I eat something, I'm thinking, "this is a 'calorie-expensive' food." I'm just sick of it, and considering abadoning the practice altogether, and just going with my gut (so to speak), getting plenty of veg/fruits and lean protein... but ...I'm a little bit addicted to tracking, too.
Some of my coworkers are doing the HCG injections and an Atkins-like 'diet' (lots of pistachios throughout the day, and get this, a Zaxby's "Zalad" with extra buffaloed chicken. Very nutritious, LOL.) I have, until now, kept my mouth shut, but of course I've looked it up and it doesn't sound like a very smart way to lose weight. How do I say something without sounding like a know-it-all? I feel like even sending a link to a good article about it will seem like I'm meddling, even if I say, "I'm concerned about this diet you're on..."
Of course I'm not the best model for losing weight, since I can't seem to at all. But still.

I ran on Tuesday at the new gym -- loved it, no one talked to me or bothered me, and that is my kind of gym -- and then Friday at the office gym. I think I prefer the new gym, actually, BUT for time reasons I can really only work out for 20 minutes there (need the other time for driving/changing clothes).
No knee pain at all with the new shoes. Hooray!
I decided that for Lent, I need to stay off the SP site during the workday. I can get sucked in and "play," leaving comments, reading blogs, "huddling," for an hour or more when I'm not paying attention. It's harder to login at home, but I'll try.
It's so windy out! Glad I have the gym membership so if I want to run, it does NOT have to be outside! I think I'm the only one who feels that way (prefers treadmill over outside).
