scale was down this week - i lost the pound i had gained last week but am expecting that will happen a lot in the next month in a half... my long days/nights have started at work and though i will try my best to get to the gym - there will be days where that just won't be possible... i hadn't worked out since saturday and after doing 45-minutes on the treadmill yesterday (walk with intervals), i felt amazing... i had so much energy that it was hard for me to fall asleep at my usual time, but i did evenutally and then got back up at 6:00... i cannot wait for may 7 and then all this stress will be over... :o)

i tried one of marie's breakfasts this morning - 2 lowfat eggo waffles with cottage cheese (i also added some sugar-free syrup)... it was rather tasty and a nice change from my usual cereal... sand peaking of marie, her success story is now on weightwatchers.com so check it out! you go girl! :o)

my boss is taking me out to lunch today to "run some ideas" by me - not sure what that means but i'm assuming it's work-related... i am totally prepared to ask for a raise, if more work will be required of me, so we'll see what happens...

not much else has been going on and like i said, work is busy and will only get busier... i will probably be posting/commenting much less than usual too, but will try my best to see what you've all be up too... if anything, i'll always post my weigh-ins so at least you can look forward to each wednesday... :o)

happy hump day...

A little up and down is fine, as long as you're maintaining in the long run. Good work. (by the way...I'm TOTALLY jealous of your egg benedict....)

Oooh, good luck with the raise conversation (if it happens). My fingers are crossed for you.

Good job losing the lb during such a busy time. That's not easy!

Congrats on losing the pound.

And you know, when life gets in the way, typically I just try my best to lose, and if I maintain, I'm happy with it. Sometime life happens, and it's part of the journey, no reason to add to your stress over it.

That's great news about the lose. Do hope you manage to find some time for yourself. Take care and don't work to hard.

So now I'm sending those {{{HUGS}}} back your way! Just remember to take it one day at a time - before you know it the madness will subside (probably only for a bit but still).

Thanks for always being upbeat and positive even life throws you a curveball - I admire that in you!!

Way to go on losing the pound...I think you are doing an amazing job even when you are super busy, you rock :)

Way to go on losing a pound, that's my goal for this week.

Life happens! Just stop by when you can! :) So how did lunch go?

Congratulations on losing the pound. Even though it's the same pound you lost before at least you lost it, right? I hate when work gets in the way of living life the way we want it to. Focus on you, though, don't forget that.

I like the lowfat eggo waffles, too. They're not bad actually.

So how did the raise lunch go? I had one of those last week. Didn't go so great. My boss now tells me that there's a raise freeze going on and it could be months before I get my raise. Ugh!!!
