Thoughts: Doing really good today, only have had 1 Coke. I had my 'meeting' with my staff, I bought them cupcakes and cookies and am happy to report I wasn't even tempted by them in the least, which was surprising as normally I am ALL over the soft cookies I bought them especially since I was stressing about staff meeting a little bit. YEAH! Today makes day 5 being on plan and I haven't felt this good in a long time. I have been taking all my medicine and that I think is helping my moods, productivity a lot. I was up at 8:30 on my day off for Pete's sakes That's a miracle all in itself. I normally wake up at 11:30-1pm on day's off. I spent like 30 min chatting with my sister last night on IM, which is surprising as we don't chat all that often, if felt great! She's getting a new puppy the end of the month! I'm excited for her.

I will admit today was the most challenging day so far with the cravings and being hungry/munchies. I tried to stay busy to keep my mind off of eating. Which is why I had more water/fluids today. It was also my day off which doesn't help matters much as I'm usually a lot more munchie on my day's off than I normally am, probably more boredom than anything. I was only going to do 15 minutes of exercise today, but I was watching CSI NY and I just kept 'pushing' myself, I was still comfortable physically (not dying of exercisedom) so I went for 20 minutes, then I said, I'm still doing good so I kept on going and I did 25 minutes! MOST time EVER with my elliptical! I've only had it since August....and I think I've used it more in the past 3 days than I have all together (not really but that's what it feels like). YEAH!
