A very light exercise day. I skipped the Toastmaster meeting because I woke up with a sore throat that got worse as the day progressed. I thought being in a small conference room would be unfair to everyone else. Instead, I walked at lunch, not much, but more than I would have if I had gone to the meeting.
I am all over the map today nutritionally. A bit hungry, but I don't want to give in. I weigh over 2 pounds more than I did the last time I stepped on the scale and that is not acceptable. If I were kidding myself, I would say it's the KB workouts, but that's not true. I have barely started with them and I have been overeating.
The next few days at work are going to be very challenging, so I am going to bed early.

I started the day with a little strength training. I used my kettlebells and was discouraged that some of the exercises seemed really tough. Then, I realized I was using the 10 pound weight instead of the 5 pound one. No wonder! Yet, WOOHOO! How cool that I could even use it at all! That got me pretty excited!
I went shopping and did not get much walking in then. I was going to take a walk when I got home, but it was soooo cold outside and I suddenly could not keep my eyes open. A short nap was not particularly refreshing.
Surprisingly, BF wanted to go with me to see if I could find a DVD for beginners about kettlebells. He hurt his knee the other day, but said he could handle the walk through the shopping district. We did not find any, but I got in a lot of walking. We did find some "sweet black rice" and "red" rice. That should be fun to try.
We're going to a larger bookstore tomorrow and, if I don't find one, I'll order one from ebay or Amazon as an early birthday present to myself...

I feel as if my role in life right now is trying to corral mercury from a shattered thermometer. Of course, you're not supposed to touch mercury, but I remember from science class that it is really hard to round up!
I've blogged ad nauseum about my work situation. I just don't think I will ever be on top of my work load and all the other stuff surrounding work does not help.
My living situation has challenges (but whose doesn't, right?).
In short, as I commented on someone's page or blog yesterday, I feel as if I can control nothing in my life save that part of it that is SparkPeople. Yesterday and today, I abdicated my responsibility. I did not eat as if I care about me and I have not exercised much. Amazingly, I got nearly 10K steps today, but that was more accident than planned.
I am not proud today...
