BLC weigh in this morning - 246.8. That's up from my initial weigh in of 245.2, but it's also TOM, so I'm not going to sweat it too much. Or well, I'll sweat it.. right off my body! before next week's WI. So, it's not as bad as it could have been, but there's much room for improvement.

I managed both a walk at lunch and a walk after work yesterday. My walks always afford me a chance to think things through without too many distractions. I must admit, I'm not doing any ST what-so-ever. I need to, I know this. I know I need to at the very least restart doing body weight training at home. I know the work that needs to be put in to tighten up everything that's gotten wobbly and jiggly. I just need to make the commitment and stick with it.

It's kennel kid night tonight, so if you'd be so kind, cross your fingers for me that the freezing rain that they've been calling for will be delayed even further until after everyone has had a spin around the path.

    I just loving the food you're eating. I wish I had time in the am to make eggs. My 1 thought for the day, keep building those muscles, you don't want to loose them when you're loosing weight

    I generally find walking is good for me to sort out stuff from life to work trouble to why is that car that color of green. LOL! I hope you had a nice walk this evening!

    I'm so impressed with the amount of veggies and the variety! emoticon

    I have to pile on with Para - do share about the protein in your coffee if you wouldn't mind.

    Wishing your TOM gone soon followed by a terrific weigh-in next week!

    TOM always has to screw with weigh ins! *growl*

    On the flip side, it will likely mean that next week's weigh in will be much better!

    I notice that your morning coffee has whey protein in it regularly (or else you take a spoonful of it at the same time?). I need to get more protein generally in my diet so I have a couple ?? for you:

    Does the whey protein do anything to your coffee? (Could one use it as a creamer-- does it have flavor? color? consistency?)

    You list onehalf serving as 65 calories-- how many grams of protein is that?

    Are you using it to get more protein in your diet/ cuz you like it in your coffee/ both?

    Have you experimented with many kinds/ do you have a kind you recommend for coffee?

    Okay, done-- have fun with the kennel kids tonight!
