Danced 8 minutes, walked the dog for 13, and will walk to work in a little while. Am very curious as to how many calories walking around in actual snow on the ground (ala playground) burns.

Up two pounds. Planned on walking to dog this morning (too cold, don't want to hurt his paws); wanted to belly dance (my mom didn't go to work, and I don't want to dance in front of her).
Last night was a bad night for food.
I'm debating on getting to work early to use an exercise bike, or to see if I can use the dance room.
I can't really talk about work right now, a couple of things are annoying me about it ATM.
Talk at you later...

On January 12th, the facts were these:
Upper Arm: 13.5
On today, February 12th, the facts are these:
Upper Arm: 12
With the exception of my upper arm (1.5 inches lost), it's taken me a month to lose two inches off from everything. I can't help but feel disappointed - two inches is better than nothing - but, still, really? A whole month, even when I make sure I'm exercising? It's a little disheartening, but...ah well. I need to weigh myself tomorrow or Monday and enter that.
Food choices as of late...I've been doing okay. Not super, but not horrible. Temptation still strikes at night, and my stomach still gets angry at me for it. The other night, I wanted something, just SOMETHING, but I headed to bed without eating anything else. I was pretty proud of that.
Went to Subway the other day and treated myself to a fountain Cherry Coke, since it had been since last month since I had any soda...I only treated myself to a medium, a 20 oz. cup, and I filled that most of the way with ice...I tracked it, and WOW, those calories bothered me!!! (At the time, I thought the cup was 22 or 24 oz....my boyfriend, a loyal Subway customer, JUST now told me the paper ups are 20 oz. I should go back and edit that!!! 20 oz, minus 5 oz of ice is better than what I'd originally worried over!)
So, yeah, gonna stick to my straight-up iced tea, for sure, no calories there since I don't like it sweet.
We went to Ruby Tuesday today - it's our anniversary (well, kinda - 10.7...10 years, 7 months)...and my boyfriend and I will only be able to spend a short while together on Valentine's Day...we thought it would be nice to eat somwhere different. I didn't toally sabotage myself today (I had some fruit before we left, had 3 iced teas there, and couldn't finish my bella chicken meal...I waited until later to have my red velvet cupcale treat). I don't like that Ruby Tuesday doesn't show complete nutrition info - I want to know how much protein I had today!!!
Speaking of today, I'm exhausted as I type. Didn't sleep well, had dance early. ate a good lunch/dinner, got some physical activity in, and...blah. I only danced for about 16 minutes in class today, but I'm on the verge of falling asleep with my laptop on my lap. I don't know if I should try for 15 more minutes today, or wait until tomorrow.
There's a dance troupe that I know that will be performing at our mall's health fair tomorrow afternoon, I'm stoked to go see them and offer my support! :)
...alright everyone, I think I won't bother dancing more tonight unless the caffiene in my tea wakes me up. Think I need to find a snack - I'm still under calories, and last ate going on 5 hours ago - I think I'll wrap this up.

Last night, I snaked on and didn't track chips. Yesterday, I didn't dance for a whole half-hour because I thought I'd be playing alongside the kids at work (I ended up dealing with a very angry boy who was misplacing his anger all over the place instead :-( ).
I also had issues with my pedometer - I forgot to clear it the night before, so when I clipped it on, I added steps to the previous amount. GAH! I figured things out, and shook it to the right amoutn of steps I'd taken to get back on track...aaaaand it cleared itself at work - I'd it the reset button somehow, and that wasn't a happy thing. :-(
But, today, walked to the bank and home (that wind is SCARY COLD), stretched, did my half hour of dance, and had some REALLY tasty chicken nodole soup.
I'm hoping today will be better than yesterday. I was also feeling guilty yesterday because there were toaster pastries for snack at work, and they're 200 calories a pastry...I had both that came in the pouch, and felt so bad about it. I also felt bad about snacking on the chips, and my body let me know that it wasn't happy, either - tummyache, ahoy~
I'm fearing weight gain, I won't lie. I know I'm human, and that I have to won the choices that I make. I'm also wondering what's up with my body, because I'm feeling kind of bloated, and I just started my pills again this week. Argh. I hope my monthly visitor doesn't show up early again...
I'll hope I can play alongside the kids for real today. I was without a helper yesterday, and out equipment room was locked (again), which made for some serious whining. Ugh. I'll have to see if I can grab the key when I get into work and grab some things beforehand. And I'll hope my helper can come back to me today!!! We're supposed to have 20 kids in my program today if everyone shows up!!! *faints*
But, anywy, gotta scoot and get ready for work - hope you're all well! :-)

19.5 lbs. lost, 26.5 lbs. to go.
Is 172.5 my halfway point?
I am so close - 176.5!!!
It's been fantastic watching my little fairy float across the bubbles. I'll have been at this for a month this month, and I'm hoping not to fall off the bandwagon. It'll get warmer outside at some point, which means bike time!!!! How exciting, I love riding my bike. :-)
I've been making myself run around and play with the kids at work - kicking a volleyball around like a soccer ball, jogging to get it, I even played hockey on Friday - I haven't done that since junior high - but the kids got a kick out of it! This is a reason why I love my job...it's not hard, at all, to stay moving.
I'm not sure when I'll find time to dance tomorrow, but I hope I can. If I can't, I'll just play extra hard at work. I like indoor recess now, because we have an area for indoor play...and it feels like there's so much more to do inside, since we have equipment to use.
Alrighty, time to try and sleep. Nighty-night, Sparkeratti.
