Song of the Day: “Closer to the Edge” 30 Seconds to Mars
..But I am happy to see you.
Okay, so, the water retention was due to: conert going, sodium, AND my TOM was in fact just around the corner. Can you say scapegoats? I can! I still worked myself to death Friday-Sunday because I felt like crap for having such a horrible gain mid-week. I’m not doing an “official weigh-in” until a bit later, and I’ll update this when I do, but I know that I am definitely down- not just my mysterious 4lbs- but also under what I was last week, so I have lost! and that makes me tres happy. [Edit: Weighing in for TBL at 186 even, a loss of -.6]
I am in a much better mood with that knowledge, and the fact that I still have all of Sunday and Monday to look forward to on my creative rampage. I’m tearing up this writing scene. @goodnuff: thanks so much for getting an account and reading the first chapter! That meant a ton to me! [And also Chapter two has just been posted, it’s titled 2011:2]. I realize now that you guys can’t read it unless you have accounts because of the maturity filter, and by the terms of agreement I can’t take the filter off unless I go through and censor all my swearing (which I won’t do). So sorry about that! But having so many people reading along as I write, and looking forward to my next chapter has definitely given me the encouragment I need to keep going, even if this storyline is a “just for fun” thing. Thank you! Thank you!
Another great update is that Friday I ran my first 2miles! I’m very proud of myself for getting to 2 miles a helluva lot sooner than I was expecting, and it felt great! Looking forward to the day when I’ll be able to run 3!
