What were you doing a year ago?

I know ... I was packing and getting ready for Hawaii!!!  Today ... wondering how cold it can possibly get here in Atlanta, NOT packing for Hawaii :)  I found my old post from a year ago. Very interesting to see what was on my mind, and realizing that I am pretty much in the same place.  That diet sprint for 8 or 9 weeks was great, too bad I didn't keep the momentum!  Interestingly enough, this sprint and that last print, day 3 was a nightmare.  Funny how that works out.

Finally took the time to finish the book I have been reading, Confessions of a Carb Queen by Susan Blech   overall very glad I read it and would recommend.  The psychology of failure and forgiveness is certainly very interesting.  It is very easy to be hard on yourself when you feel like you haven't succeeded, it is not as easy to be kind and forgive yourself and move forward.  Definitely a bit cathartic to be inside of the author's head as she struggles.  

As for myself, I had a great day.  Made a wonderful low(ish) sodium dish ( inspired by the book) and did very well at the gym.  Thanks to my iPod Touch and an episode of Glee, the 25 mins on the elliptical few by.  Unfortunately I was running late to a meeting, otherwise I believe I could have stayed in the gym longer.  Now that I am a month into this thing, I am going to need to increase the exercise.  This weekend I will make my way to the pool at the LA Fitness.  I assure you the fat lady in the pool with the swim dress, blue and pink swim cap, goggles, and little waterproof mp3 player on my head will be a spectacle!  The good news is that I totally don't give a shit.  One thing is for is too short to care what other people think.  That said, I still have to change into my gym clothes in the restroom rather than the open locker room!!!

Tomorrow I will run my GoWearFit report, weigh-in, and post the data for the world to see!

Until then ... nighty night.  Time for my nightly date with Craig Ferguson.
