I feel about the same as yesterday -- only my sore throat didn't disappear after food and water for breakfast. It has stuck around all day. Not SUPER SORE BAD, just mildly irritating and annoying. It's so annoying because I'm not SICK, I'm just feeling the yuck factor. I don't want to complain about it too much because hopefully this means I'm fighting whatever it is off and I WON'T get really sick... but it's still irritating.
I had my interview today for that position I'm applying for at work and it seemed to go really well. One of the guys I work with told me he thought it went really well, as well as it possibly could even. So WOOHOO to that! (He's a position above me and will be taking responsibility for the tasks that our boss has once my boss is deployed next year, so whoever gets this position will be working very closely with this dude so he got to be in on the interviews.) It was kinda weird because it was FOUR PEOPLE interviewing me. But I've been interviewed by more than that before. :P So I guess that experience helped me in a way.
I'm kind of glad I had that interview actually, because the last two times I applied I was never formally interviewed. I talked to my boss briefly the first time, the second time I never even got that much. So at least this time it gave me the opportunity to DAZZLE them. ;) HAHAHAHA
Well -- as far as fitness/nutrition goes... I ate leftover pizza for breakfast. My DH bought a take and bake pizza from Sam's Club yesterday and saved me some. Well, I didn't want to eat it last night because I had dinner planned and calories worked out, but I ate it this morning. Looked it up at work and HOLY MOLY. It was almost 200cal more than I mentally alotted for. I figured 500-700 cal, and it was like 885. But with everything else entered I still have a buffer after dinner, so I'm not feeling too bad about it.
Just tired. And semi-sore throated and semi- congested. BUT.
I worked out. I didn't run because I thought that doing the ArcTrainer would be a more efficient use of my energy -- burn more calories for the time spent and through more use of my muscles than aerobic capacities. Worked well. And then I did ST, really focusing on intent and form and doing opposing stretches in between sets. That part felt really good.
Not sure what I will do the rest of the week when it comes to excercise, but I'm going to try to keep it up for sure, just seeing how I feel and everything.

The terrible weekend of temptation has been faced and defeated. :)
I know I said I wouldn't change my ticker unless I started to weigh consistently over my range but........ I weighed 165 even today.
SO! I reallly really wanted my ticker to finally show that I GOT THERE, so dangit, I updated it. :)
I probably ate more than I needed to on Saturday evening, but I didn't go CRAZY either. I got my little steak, baked potato w/ butter and sour cream ON THE SIDE thank you very much (only used a little bit), salad... good stuff. :) No desserts, good good. The extra were a bit of appetizers, but I really didn't eat very much of them at all -- not like I normally would. I was very in control and it felt great. I didn't feel restricted, just good. And normal. :) hehe.
Tracked everything on paper yesterday and stayed to the bottom of my cal range w/ good stuff and feel good today.
I wanted to do SOMETHING workout related this morning but I dunno how it happened -- I totally just lost track of time. I got up just before 10, planned meals, and somehow didn't leave for the store until 11:15, but I don't have to leave for work until 12:40. I figured, ok, I have a list, hit the first store 30min, hit the second store for like 3 things, 15 minutes, I'll be back at the house by noonish, a little after. (I live RIGHT NEXT to the stores I was going to.) Well I get out of the first store and it's already 12:15. OOPS!
So I had to rush home, eat something, get my lunch together, put away the groceries, shower...
Left the house at 12:45 and arrived at work 5 min late. *phwew* HAHAHA. But no time for physicality. Maybe I can do some ST tonight, but everytime I say that I never do. (BWAHAHA I might as well be honest with myself...) Tomorrow is speedwork, though, and probably some Upper Body and Core ST. :)

WOOHOO!! I AM A WARRIOR!!!
Got to bed probably by 1:45AM... got up 5:30, was running by 6:05, got back to work at 6:35. :D YAY!
ALLLLmost 3 miles. So that's awesome. :D 10:06 per mile -- SO CLOSE to my goal of 10min miles for a 5K distance -- just a TINY bit faster and a TINY bit longer and I would have nailed it. But I must admit I'm pretty stoked about being that close. :D WOOHOO! Especially for getting up so early after staying out so late and all that good stuff.
That's it really.
Last night was fun, BTW.
OH, there was this one guy... (the guest of honor actually)... who kept calling me a hottie and giving my husband a hard time saying I was too pretty for him and all this crap. It's KIND of an inside joke, because he was giving this other dude at their office a hard time about that once and he apparently told everyone that he thinks I'm out of his league (my husband said this I mean) and so anyway. It wasn't TOTALLY awkward, but it was still kinda awkward (while also flattering).
This other girl that I met like... last year when I was not halfway through losing 100lbs yet even... she was like, "You look SO SKINNY. I mean REALLY. Like skinny skinny" I was like... Thanks? :D HAHA cause she meant it as a compliment. Then she was like, let me see your shoulders, and she came over and put her hands on my shoulders and was like, FEEL YOUR SHOULDERS. Now feel mine. And I was like, wow my shoulders are bony. HAHAHA
It was weird.
But these people were both very drunk.
(As were most of the party, except my husband and I because we don't drink... so that always makes for amusement. :) hahaha)
OH FOOD. *WARNING WARNING BAD FOOD AHEAD*
I had a burger. A big big burger w/ bacon and BBQ sauce and cheese, and I added an onion ring, and ate a couple on the side, and gave a couple to my husband. We were actually going to order an appetizer too (we discussed it before, but were going to order it later), but we ended up leaving that place to go someplace else, and it's a good thing, because I was really full and did NOT need any other food and yay, I didn't eat anything else. My DH even stopped on the way home to get something for himself and I declined any additional food. WOOHOO. So splurge meal managed.
One more to go through. :D I'm excited, actually.
Well, back to work.

Got woken up this morning by some ridiculous girl (remember Speedy from Runner's Yoga? Well she worked with my DH...) calling to yell at my DH for "telling lies" about her. WHAT?!?!?!? Some people are so insane...
Basically some things got out about some really DUMB stuff she said, and now she's embarrassed and wanted to call him while in front of everyone they work with and call him a liar in front of everyone as some kind of demonstration. ???? Anyway. They all know her so I don't really get the point of that -- beside the fact that he doesn't even work there anymore. It was a summer job in between school semesters.
I mean, if she hadn't woken me up, I'd JUST be laughing about it. But since she woke us up early, it's an irritation as well. :P HAHAHA.
Anyway -- not TOO early. Legs sore from running, upper body sore from ST. Guess I could have done some crunches or something but I decided to take the day off, especially since I'm gonna run again in the AM.
Tonight is the going away party at the bar. Ate a healthy breakfast and will soon be eating a healthy lunch. :D WOOHOO! :D And then whatever nonsense I eat tonight will be filed away under "cheat meal of the week".
So........ So You Think You Can Dance winner. Thoughts? I was kind of shocked about who WASN'T in the top two, but after the top two, the one I wanted of those two ... won. (How's that for commentary without spoiler? :D HAHA)
