Excuse me, I think my motivation took a wrong turn
Man, I am utterly exhausted. This whole sick thing has seriously screwed up my sleep schedule -- I want to sleep at 5 pm, because I'm drained, but then I end up sleeping for two hours because I’m just That Tired, and of course I'm not sleepy when it gets to be 11 pm, or midnight, or 1 am. This means the cycle just goes on and on and on and I'm tired in the morning and exhausted at 5 pm and have to sleep, and round and round the crazy sleep schedule we go.

It's not going to stop until the weekend, either, because I'm just That Busy. Plus, I'm a wimp and want to hang out with my friends so won't cancel my social engagements. So, my own fault, really. I'm tempted to start bringing benedryl with me so I can take that *right* as I'm leaving the social stuff, and it won't kick in until a half hour after I get home. But, probably not the greatest of ideas.

On a really good note, I weighed in last night for my 10 lbs off by thanksgiving day challenge (see 10byturkey if you're interested in participating -- we'll have other challenges after turkey day but you don't have to wait! ), and I came in at 10.6 lbs off! I made it! Of course, now the challenge is to find something else to challenge me so I don't re-gain that 10 lbs. I'm heading for 15 lbs by thanksgiving, and 20 by the end of the year.

I did manage to straighten out my quicken and get some meeting minutes prepared; now I just have to follow up on those. I'm probably going to head home around 3:30; my sore throat seems to be threatening again, and (see above) I'm exhausted.

Current Mood: accomplished accomplished

I'm more excited about this than I have been in a long time. I've been on the sveltifying bandwagon more times than I can count, and having the folks over there cheer me on helps a lot (as does watching the trendline go down down down each day). It's so amazing to think that if I keep at 1 lb/week, that I could be 20 lbs lighter by the end of the year!

Let's get off the "could" bandwagon and onto the "will" thoughts.

We WILL be 20 pounds lighter by the end of the year. We will be 20 pounds lighter by the end of the year.

We will...

Yes, you are SO RIGHT!

Will! We will! :)

Seriously, I KNOW that attitude is a huge thing.

How we feel about it. You know what? I've had this feeling for so long, that being thin is like winning the lottery...that I would never have a flat stomach or a strong arm. But you know what? It's MY decision to make, and it's MINE to attain. And everything else is just self-pity, you know? Which is NOT to say that if my stomach is not a washboard, I'm a loser. That's NOT what I'm saying. But I am saying that my body is mine to make of it what I will. Not just a wish to have...

Well so much for the box of chocolate mice that I was going to send, they would only add to your sleepylessness thanks to the excessively delicious choclicated sugar, and knock you off the wagon at the same time.. I guess I'll just have to save them for myself.. I'll force them down somehow.. :p
Congrats on reaching one goal though, and good luck on reaching your others..

No no, feel free to send chocolates! I'm allowed to have them, just in moderation. Thus, they go on the freezer plan. ;) All my chocolates go in the freezer, and I eat them when I really want them and have to work at it. It's harder to eat a whole box when you have to put effort into that :)

Hmmmm, frozen mice huh?? I would think those would be rough on the teefs.. Maybe it should be the penguins that are sent, they would be more at home in the cold climate.. ;)

Congrats! That's very inspiring to me...perhaps I'll join in on the challenge.

You should join! I'm working my way to 15 lbs off by Nov., which is only 1lb a week, and so should be very doable.

Btw, I'm thinking of coming out to SF Nov 7-11. Are you and possibly The Jeff free sometime around then? I would really love to see you and catch up.
