This was likely a higher deficit, but when I got home yesterday, I changed out of work clothes and forgot to put my Fitbit back on. We walked 2 miles before dinner, then by 7:30 I was ready to crawl into bed with a tension headache. As I said, work's been extra-busy lately and I think my brain just needed to shut down early.

NSV! emoticon
Yesterday I was able to slide my jeans down without unbuttoning or unzipping.
emoticon
And NO it was not after wearing them all day, either LOL that does happen, but this was first thing in the morning, fresh off the hanger. I love when that happens.

I'm still working at being sugar/sweetener free for the 28 Days Later challenge. I must admit some contraband has snuck into my mouth (I have no idea how it got there, swear!) but for the most part I'm hanging tough. I do realize I miss it, more than I should.

Oh yea. I was all pumped up for the LCW yesterday, but it all fell apart. I was suppose to walk at lunch - I didn't. I felt too busy to get up and leave the building at that time. I was suppose to run after work - I didn't. I felt too icky to run so settled for a walk instead.

I'm usually more determined than that, and I know logically that DOING something almost always makes me feel better. I just gave in.

That was yesterday. Today, I don't have a choice - those kennel kids are going to make sure I get my steps and walking in tonight, no matter what!

Actually, this seems more accurate:

LOL

I wish you all a good Wednesday - if it's your Weigh In day, may the scale be kind. If it's your Hump day, may you enjoy it!

    YAY, what a great NSV!

LOVE the picture of the dogs pulling the people! That's definitely what happened back when I had a German Shepard!

    I hate it when work interferes with my Spark time! emoticon

Don't you hate it when you forget to put your Fitbit on? I haven't done that for a workout, but for regular every day stuff I have, and it drives me nuts! I want everything to count! The new one coming out, that goes on your wrist and you can wear in the shower, is looking very tempting to me.

    NSV of awesomeness! Nothing is more telling about weight loss than the clothes you are familiar with suddenly becoming unfamiliar to your body.

I'm glad that the sugar free week is going well despite not being perfect. I hope you blog something towards the end of this 28 day experiment, letting us know your observations about a sweetener-free life... from energy levels, tastebud changes, weight loss, cravings, to food difficulties, etc. I'm not planning on doing it myself (got a plan that's working for me so far-- if it ain't broke don't fix it) but that's not to say that I'm not generally curious or open to it if/when my current plan starts to stagnate with my bod....

As a question: If you calculate your differentials over a month, and compare that to your net loss over a month, does it balance out?

How do you feel about the accuracy of your fit bit? I've looked into them, but I'm a little skep about it as I like to swim- do the elliptical- and I got fat on my regular activity so I don't know if knowing that will be helpful/hurtful, ya know?
