HYC Check In

This week starts with techno tragedy – the internets are not working at my house! My cell phone died, and the home phone was out for a day. I then became That Guy who had to go to the Sprint store, post haste. It is frustrating to feel sort of impotent when technology is failing me, how did that happen when I was the girl who resisted cell phones? Having no internet is not improving the plague of boring here in the Trisaratops Lounge, but our technicians are working as best as they can. Today's post is of the Secretive Blogging at Work variety. Sneaky!

My weight loss efforts were not unrewarded this week. Finally, a loss. 1.2 this week – which I have to admit I was secretly hoping that one week of dedicated effort would magically yield an 8 pound loss, but weird, that didn’t happen. I gave in to TOM temptation a bit, but exercised solidly. I went to the company baseball game, and ate a lot of peanuts and fruit, one sausage, no bun and skipped the booze. Free booze at that! How's that for dedication. This week’s challenge will be to exercise despite that my favorite YMCA location is closed for the its yearly maintenance week. Tonight my friend and I are going to try an Urban work out. Downtown Seattle is full of steep hills and stairs and should prove to be a kick in the tush that I need. We can do a little window shopping here, too. I don’t think anything there comes in size 16, but it shore is purty in there.

Keep on keeping on, everyone! This isn’t going to be easy, but it is worth it. I think I need to get this tattooed on my forehead.

Congrats on the loss! An urban workout sounds like an awesome idea. I loved Seattle when I visited... I definitely got a workout exploring the city.

Huh. Imagine that, no 8-lb. loss after ONE WEEK. :) The 1.2 was a step in the right direction, for sure. Especially when the world is conspiring against you. No internets, no cell phone, no YMCA. Sheesh! Cave girl times.

Great choices at the ball game, and you deserve some sort of medal for giving up free booze.

Wow, you passed up free alcohol? That would be the hardest challenge I would ever have to face, and I truly don't think I could handle it as gracefully as you did.

Also, how amazing is window shopping at places that don't carry a size 16? I love going to PacSun because one day, I WILL be able to fit into at least one thing they sell (shoes and accessories excluded)!
