How do these weigh ins come up so quickly?? This past week I was a little less active, so I'm not expecting to lose as much as I'm expecting to maintain. That would be fine for now. :) I know I can't drop tons of weight every week and I know if I chip away at it slowly, it will be much easier to maintain in the future. (Still I have fingers crossed for even a little loss...)
Well I'm still on my epic quest to have my apartment ready for company this weekend. This will be the first time some of these folks have seen my apartment, and the first time we've all been together in a while, so I want everything to be in tip top shape. That being said, I went on quite the laundry adventure today. I washed everything from the couch cover to my gym bag. I have a very bad sense of smell, so I always go overboard on laundry...just to be safe. I've also been staying up way to late cleaning and organizing, but it's all starting to look fantastic! I know I'm going to be so happy when it's all done...and when my apartment is clean I feel like I have more time for other fun things.
I'm actually hoping the rain will let up soon so I can get some more skating in. I finally got to roller blade the other day and it felt so good! It's one of those active things that I don't do to burn calories...I do it because I love it. Not every activity has to be about the calorie count...that's just no way to live. Gotta find that thing you just love to do for yourself. :)
Speaking of things I love, I finally got my den (craft room) ready to set up my sewing/embroidery machine! So excited to do some projects! I'm way out of practice, but I'm sure it will come back to me with time. Everyone might be getting homemade Christmas gifts this year. :P
Well I better sum this up...still have to put my laundry away before bed! Goodnight! Have a nice Wednesday! We're almost halfway to the weekend! YAY!!! :)

Well it's official. I've begun to really expect more of myself...and I like how that feels. Today I went for a 20 minute jog at lunch. In the past, that would have been enough to warrant dinner at Friendly's. Now I feel like I've been sluggish and I haven't done everything I could have to have a healthy day. Now granted, Monday is normally my day of rest, but I missed my workout Sunday and only did a short jog that really didn't make up for it at all.
I'm not mad at myself. I just know I need to pick it up the rest of the week and finish strong. After all, it isn't about just one day. It's about having a balanced week...which leads to a balanced month, which eventually leads to big changes. And I'm too excited about those changes to let one day get me down.
So take that negative self image! You've kept me down for too long and I won't stand for it anymore! I'm in control and I've decided to be happy and healthy...no matter what size. So there!!
