Maree inspired me to get my second cuppa before reading this thread.
Another VA person checking in from Woodbridge (near Quantico Marine Corps Base south of DC), though I work in Silver Spring, MD (nasty commute). I brought gym clothes to work but decided to take a light day after yesterday's run + ST, so I did my stair game (start at my floor (13) and go up 2 flights/down 1 till I reach the top (19th) floor, then down 2/up 1 till I reach the bottom). Even the stairwell was sweltering, so I headed outside after that for a short walk before getting my eggs at the little cafe.
The last few days, I've been avoiding alcohol while DH is out of town to see if I can tell the difference, and I really can. I feel more energetic in the morning, and I'm actually having trouble getting enough calories, because my daytime eating is the same, but my dinners are not high in calories because DH isn't here to cook for. Also, because I'm consciously avoiding alcohol, that effort bleeds over to the mindless snacking problem, which also isn't happening.
