This week, I declare victory over Halloween. Despite having 150 pieces of leftover candy at my house, and being surrounded by chocolate goodness at work, I actually managed to lose a pound.
This does not mean that I did not indulge. On the contrary, I had a piece or two every day. But this week, I decided not to eat anything after dinner. No junk food, no candy, not even a healthy snack. And that seems to have made a difference. So I guess I’ll have to keep it up?
I’m still slacking hugely on the exercise front, though. I know I need to just man up and make myself go straight to the gym from work, but it’s hard to do it. I don’t get off work till about six most days. So if I go work out, I don’t get home until it’s just about time to put Tori to bed.
That kind of sucks.
I did buy a jogging stroller last weekend. It was the steal of the century—only $45 for a stroller that was easily $400 new. But it’s dark by the time I get home. Who wants to jog in the dark?
People who want to get thin, that’s who. Right? Right.
You know what’s really motivating, though? Taking a stroll through the center of a college town on a warm, sunny day. All those skinny sorority bitches…they’re enough to make a person want to perform some emergency liposuction on themselves.
Not that I’m speaking from experience or anything.
Anyway, that’s it for me. How did you guys do this week?
