Today is day 20 of continuous exercise. I can absolutely tell that my body is settling into a groove. My muscles feel tighter and leaner. I forgot how much energy I get from working out. It is a much better addiction than chocolate! When I first started this journey I went 365 days with over 45 minutes of exercise each day. Right now I am not thinking that far in advance - I just want to get through the first 100 days and then I know the future will take care of itself.
Regarding weighing in - I haven't weighed myself in nearly 3 weeks and I am planning my first weigh in for October 31st (the end of the month, and also my birthday). It has been both a positive and negative experience not getting on the scale each day. On one hand, it is definitely easier for me to keep positive with no scale disappointments. On the other hand, I spend so much time wondering what I weigh, it somewhat defeats the purpose. I think moving forward into November I will try something in between and weigh in every two weeks.
Finally, it is my birthday this week! I love all things Halloween and we generally have a big party to celebrate. This year, with the hurricane and storms coming up the coast we are anticipating winds in excess of 30 mph, so no outside decorations (bummer). I am spending the day decorating inside though and I am looking forward to celebrating my birthday, the weight (pretty sure I am in for a BIG loss) and all of my small steps forward.
Thanks for listening to my rambling!

Ok imagine the worst day ever...
No need for details - you all know what that day looks like.
I was numb this afternoon, upset and staring mindlessly at the computer
A friend of mine recommended that I get the h*ll off my butt and go outside - smartest advice ever!!
As soon as I was cycling I got a surge of energy. Probably the best workout I have had all week - nothing like pedalling the angst away. About 20 minutes into the ride I realized I was able to breath again.
Sometimes we need to reset ourselves. Cycling reset my zen. What resets yours?
Loving the mountain air,
