Still not dead

Well, yesterday went swimmingly (as most first days back do) and I managed to easily stick within my plan. Well, it did involve a lot of mental games with my head where I had to point out to myself that I wanted to fit in my clothing more than I wanted chocolate. Plus, by about 3 pm, the cold I am suffering from had really begun to slow me down and wear me out. Today, I felt better and went to the gym even though I still have this horrible hacking cough. I even brought extra gym clothes with me, the plan being to stop at the gym for 30 minutes after work (thus avoiding the worst part of rush hour which only last for 1 hr) and pick up an extra cardio workout. I am going to change at work and that way I can just dash in and out of the gym since it will be super crowded. Then I am going to head home and colapse. I figure that while I cannot always control my food, I can compensate by adding in extra workouts during the week. I used to get in about two hours of cardio everyday, I would like to get back to that if I can manage it.

Hi Kat :)
I am so glad to see you back, I missed you!
I hope you are feeling better very, very soon. I also hope that this trial you are working on doesn't wear at you too much more. I can only imagine how difficult that must be.
I am sending you lots of love

I knew you would be able to make it through all the tempations. Way to go.

I know what you mean about the workouts. I use to do two hours a day too and I felt so great when I was doing it.
