That's how i'm feeling. I'm under the weather, and not happy about it. Instead of going to yoga yesterday I went home early. and i really don't have the energy for physical activity. it sucks, i get all riled up and ready to drop the weight and BOOM. all i want to do is sleep 20 hours a day. On the flip side i'm eating less... so, not a total loss i guess.
anyway, hoping i'll be better by the weeks end and i can combat the Christmas day feast

12/8/2010 - 145
That was my weigh in. Horrible! Yes, i know it could be worse. but here's the thing, i'm 5'3 with a small frame and 28. I've gained 25 pounds in the last 5 years... and did i mention I'm 28. I'm too young for this!!! In all my life i've never gone over 139, 140 was my line. If i got any where near that line i dieted and exercised and got back to where i needed to be. Not this time... this time i got on the scale and that line is 5 pounds behind me. I'm discouraged, a little depressed, but most of all, and most importantly I'm PISSED! (at least i'm not complacent right?)
Why didn't anyone tell me?!?! I know you can see an extra 25 pounds on a person, you can usually see an extra 10, so why didn't anyone say anything? "Hey Stacy, maybe you shouldn't have that extra piece of pie" "Those jeans are a little tighter than they used to be" "Hey, maybe we should work out together" etc etc... or just cut to the chase and say "You're getting fat! Don't eat so damn much and hop on a treadmill once in a while."
Sure, it's a little harsh and my feelings would be a little hurt. But when you get on the scale and you're 25 pounds overweight, that's worse, much much worse.
In conclusion, friends, romans, countrymen... when I put on a few take the pie out of my mouth and shove in a celery stick.

I went back to doing yoga a couple months ago, and that was a good start, but the truth is, I've done quite a bit of damage since february and yoga a couple times a week just isn't going to cut it. I need change, a change in diet, exercise, time management etc etc. This is my cry for help... I need accountability, I just can't go up ANOTHER size. witty, humorous, sarcastic blogs will be posted in weeks to come... today i just need to get back on track

i know my friend isn't the first person to do this, but the fact that she did made it a little bit more of an accessible idea. She has decided to forgo the desk chair and instead use a yoga ball. Again, i know she's not the first person to do this, i've seen it suggested before... but it just seemed so silly. Now that i can picture her doing it at her desk, i don't feel so ridiculous using one at my own. Technically it's only a half day since i forgot to bring it this morning and only picked it up when i ran home for lunch, BUT! i did deflate it before i left the house (didn't want to be seen walking in with a giant inflatable ball) and so when i arrived back at my desk i had to pump it up. That counts for some kind of strength exercise right? i actually placed the pump between my knees and and did some inner thigh work, yea me!
anyway, i'm very excited about engaging my core all day long, but there's a problem, it's too short! i mean noticeably short, as in i can't see over the halfwall/partition thing. and i'm looking up at my computer screen. any suggestions?
this is day one, i'll keep you updated as to how many times i fall, forget i can't swivel etc etc.
