Get 'er Done Thursday

Nothing much going on my end of the Blogosphere. I'm working, I'll be running later, my locks looks amazing today and the three year-old brown slacks I'm wearing make me look quite thin. Dern, I'd say my self-esteem is pretty high, wouldn't you?

Perhaps it's because I'm completely and totally back OP. WW, that is. I completely and totally fell off the wagon over the weekend and proceeded to be dragged behind it for 72 hours. I stuffed cookies and other random assorted junk-food type items down my pie hole all weekend. Oh and get this. I didn't move a muscle. I didn't WATP with Leslie, I didn't Shred with Jillian, I didn't do a gosh-darned thing. I napped like it was going out of style. In the bed, on the couch, on the floor, screw it, I had no remorse. I slept all over the house for a very long time. And it felt great.

Yesterday, if you read my post, you'll know I was back OP and I ran/biked again. A 2-mile jog and a 3-mile bike ride. It's amazing how 18 hours of no sugar added eating and a little vigorous exercise. can change your point of view. Outlook. Perspective. All of those things. I feel great. I feel amazing. I feel alive again!
