I guess there's a gym in Canada that does not allow "skinny" women and is for "plus-sized" women only.
I think this is crazy!
First of all, what are they basing "skinny" on? Is it BMI, weight, clothing size? Second of all, if you go to this gym and become "skinny" woman by their standards, are you kicked out?
"Great job on your weight loss and hitting your goals. Now get out."
I think that by keeping someone in their comfort zone you are keeping them at the same level they have always been. I understand going to a spinning class when you weigh a lot is not something you want to do and you may not be able to keep up. I get it. I used to be very heavy. Even now, I am often the slowest person in my crossfit class. We're doing rope climbing today and I am NOT a rope climber. Never have been. But I'm going to try because I will never get better if I don't try new things. The fact is that I am going to do my damnest to climb even a foot up that rope.
When I was very heavy, the fit people at the gym inspired me. Obviously they are doing something that worked so I would observe and try to emulate them. Now that I am not that heavy, the only thing I think of when I see a heavy person come in is "way to go!" They're working towards a goal of a healthier life.
Anyway...here is the link to the article. What do you think?

First of all, I'm sure you guys want to know about the bank robbery part.
Around 8:45 yesterday morning a guy in Cody that matched the description of someone who robbed a bank in Cheyenne on Friday, went into a credit union and handed a note demanding cash. He left without any cash.
At 11:23 he showed up at my bank's downtown branch. It is a very small branch (two tellers & a personal banker) and one teller was at lunch. He handed Cindy a note demanding money. She gave him some (per our procedures not to put up a fight) and he left. There was no weapon used in either instance.
The cops believe this guy was the same one from Cheyenne. I guess he's making his way around the state since Cheyenne is in the SE corner and Cody is in the NW corner of Wyoming.
It was a very long day. I, as the Auditor, had to stay down at the branch and make sure all information is secured blah blah blah. I had a huge headache by the end of it.
The most important thing is that everyone is safe, from both banks.
My meal plan with day 1 foods:
3 proteins: 2 eggs, 5 oz cottage cheese, 5 oz turkey brat
4 vegetables: 6 stalks celery (counts as 2 servings), 1/2 green pepper, 1 cup green beans
2 fruits: 7 med strawberries, 1/2 cup raspberries
2 starches: 1 slice wheat bread, one crescent
1 fat: 1 Tbs margarine
2 Thermo snacks: PB chocolate protein bar, chocolate fudge cake
8oz skim milk
90-110 oz water
Lots of food it looks like but actually works out to almost 1,300 calories. I can also have diet 7up or Sprite. Anything I eat besides my plan I have to write down. And I record my exercise.
I thought today's funny was appropriate after what happened yesterday...

That's right! I jumped 24" boxes last night and this morning at crossfit! Man it feels good! When I stand next to the box I can't believe I can jump that high!
As far as the diet, I am tired without carbs again. Feels like when I started paleo. I meet with Barb this afternoon to work out the next phrase of the plan (starting Thursday).
