I stepped on the scale this morning, which I've been avoiding since last week, and I'm up 2.2. Thank you TOM and hormones.
S'alright, just means the loss next week will be even better, right?
And then.. I moved on.
Seriously, after the WI, I just .. felt better. It is what it is, and I knew what it would be. Now that's over with, no pressure or guilt, just action.

Before I got home yesterday, I was going to run after work.
When I got home yesterday, the mind/body was not willing.
So, we compromised.
I went downstairs and walked on the treadmill (hat tip to Fruityful for the inspiration!) to get my miles in while watching West Wing.
In case you think I'm fibbing about hormones and being out of whack (not that I think you think that, but just in case..) I alternated between sobbing and laughing while watching the show. It was the end of the Season 1 finale (the shooting where the President and Josh are shot) and the Season 2 opener.
Total nutjob. Really. I knew I was being a nutjob. I mean, I've seen the show. I know what happens. There are times being a woman just wears on my nerves. Not that I'd prefer the alternative, I like being a girl, mostly.
A note about my 'crap' comment yesterday. Thanks for the assurances that I wasn't doing badly. From an over-all perspective, no, it's not that bad. In light of the 28 Days Later Sugar/Sweetener Free challenge, I suck LOL I do really well during the day but have been soothing myself in the evening with chocolate.
Old habits are hard to break, but I'm going to make this last week of the challenge as clean as possible. I don't consider myself a failure, but this month has certainly proved to me that, while not inundated with sugar/sweetener all day every day, I do have areas to be worked on.
Thank you, though, for handling me gently. I appreciate all your comments and support.
Now on with the show.
