Brownies, cookies and pastries are only a few of the things that are currently being carted in by the caterers. I ate none of these things - I usually go for the veggies, but as there were none today, I had nothing. Just the sandwich and apple that I brought for lunch. That was enough anyway.
I'd like to sincerely thank everyone in the Challenge who reached out to me. I've never had to many emails in a day - unless we're talking about penis enlargement ads and offers to help princes in far off countries.
When I first saw my name on the list of people needing help I was embarrassed, ashamed, and kind of horrified. I knew I hadn't been doing well, ok, terrible, but seeing my 0.8% really put things into perspective. I really don't want to be the person who signs up for a weight loss challenge, who writes a weight loss blog - and doesn't lose weight. It's say, and it's not going to be me.
To be honest, the emails I received were nothing short of amazing. I teared up in the lunchroom and got quite a few odd looks.
While I felt like a complete disappointment after reading them, I was also incredibly inspired. I know what to do to lose weight, it's just really time to start doing it.
I made the trek to the gym yesterday, I attempted to take the LRT there, big mistake. The stop is really far away from the gym, normally, that's awesome b/c it's a bit of extra walking, but, through huge piles of mushy snow, it's just a huge pain in the ass. I'll be driving to the gym tomorrow, assuming I don't get stuck in the alley, which happened a few days ago.
Side note: if you have to get stuck in the snow, make sure you're blocking the whole road, that way people are forced to help you if they want to continue on their way!
