Man, this week seems like it's a month long. I can't believe it's only Wednesday. I think the anticipation of a couple of days off from work next week is making it drag.
I'm not sure what we're doing for the holiday. We have a few options, but we do need to go to my parents' house at some point because we have to pick up some furniture they're trying to get rid of. I'm sure it will be a challenge foodwise, but I'm not really scared. I've been really stressed at work, so I would like to just stay home and relax, but don't think that's going to happen.
I have done a progress check on my steps. I've been wearing my pedometer for 13 days and I've walked a lot more than I thought. I've walked 104,730 steps. That's over 52 miles! At this rate, I think I should make my son's house well before Christmas. He better get a room ready!

I only lost 1 pound this week, but I'm OK with that. I just have to keep at it.
Several weeks ago I bought a huge bag of candy corn. That's like my favorite Halloween candy of all time, but only Brach's. (I am actually a candy corn snob.) Anyway, I've been carrying it around in my bookbag for about a month and I sort of forgot it was even there until I found it yesterday when I was cleaning out my bag. This afternoon I was having a weak moment and was so tempted to open it, but instead I read one of Dean Anderson's motivational articles and that was it! I CAN do this.
Now I'm debating on whether to keep the bag or toss it. It's like a personal challenge to resist one of my main temptations, but I'm not sure this is a good strategy. It will probably be pretty hard and stale before long anyway. Keep or toss????
