    Morning all. This is my first day back at work in a while. I had Friday off for the 4th. I had Thursday and Monday off because DH's parents were in town and I had to pick them up and drop them off at the airport. It's nice to be back to a regular schedule. I had too many days of getting up early and staying up late and it was really hard on me - mostly emotionally. Sticking to a regular schedule is much better for me.

    I had a glass of almond milk this morning with two small homemade cinnamon rolls. I know it was a bad choice - but they had that's good, right? I just needed something quick. Anyways, I'll weigh myself tomorrow - I always do it the second day of the week (this week it'll be Wednesday). I hope that everyone is having a good day.

    Starting weight: 198 Current weight: 191

    Ahhhhhhh Kali, you're someone else who doesn't weigh every day. I'm taking a mental survey. Michelle doesn't either. Amber doesn't but I think that's because she is so far into maintenance. And we know that Carl wouldn't either. LOL!

    Really gonna be hot today. Did I mention I hate the heat?

    I'm eating too large a healthy snack/snacks in the evening. MUST STOP THAT!

    I saw today that Sharon is beginning chemo. Terrible news. Her lymphedema must have been superseded by something worse. Here's hoping it is very curable with an easy course of treatment.

    My DH brought home an Italian sandwich for us to split at lunch. I probably shouldn't but I suspect I will do just that. Sandwiches are my weakness and I hardly ever have one now. Maybe my daily apple will blunt it's ill effects.

    kalimiller replied to mog1026's response:
    I probably weigh three to four times a week, but the only one that REALLY counts is the one I do on Tuesdays (or in this week's case, Wednesday). The other times are just for motivation sake. It is kind of random when I weigh - if I feel like it I will. Also, if DH is in the bathroom, I won't weigh. Nope. lol

    Hi everybody,

    I had cereal with ff milk for breakfast. I hope to go to the gym this afternoon. I'm feeling a little sluggish today and I don't want to exercise. So I have to get up my motivation. Just a slow day for me and I might weigh in when I go to the gym. Well have a good day everybody.
