"I said to the man are you trying to tempt me?"

I actually heard this song on the way to work this morning so I'm taking that as a sign! It talks about food. We have a go!

Greetings! This week wasn't bad. I had a huge piece of choclate cake, but I ate half of it Saturday and the other half on Sunday. As good as having none at all? Not hardly. But it was good. I looked for a picture to show you, but came up empty. No food porn this week.

I went looking for a dress for the RT Faery Ball and bought a heart rate monitor instead. Please, don't ask me how that happened. I have no idea! They were even in different stores. All I know is that I went looking for a dress, didn't find any I liked, and suddenly I was somewhere else, spending money on something completely different. I LOVE it, though. It also does calories burned (after you enter a bunch of info into the thing) so it should be at least as accurate as gym machines. I'm hoping more so.

Last, but not least, I changed my ticker! I discovered my doctor's report from January and realized I had "mis-remembered" my start weight. Ha! Add that (or subtract that) from the fact that I lost 2lbs this week, and there is a huge jump. YAY ME! Next week won't be quite as much fun, I'm sure. And the week AFTER RT will be a low score that we surely all agree doesn't need to be reported. Right? For now, I'm just going to stare happily at that 17.9 and grin at the old skirt I'm wearing today that fits again.

Happy Tuesday!

I love that song, hehe.

Oh man, I want a heart rate monitor! They sell some at my gym, but they're on the retarded side of expensive, so I'm waiting until I win the lottery... or until my GI Bill kicks back in. Whichever happens first.

The cake? I would've eaten the whole thing in one sitting, so I'm proud of you for stretching it out! :) You've got to allow yourself a little room to cheat or you're going to beat yourself up about it and end up cheating again and again.

YAY FOR FITTING INTO YOUR OLD SKIRT!! How awesome is that! I'm totally doing a happy dance for you right now!

Congrats on fitting in to an old skirt! And hey...gotta have a little cake now and again or you'd be suicidal. Well, I would be anyway. LOL!

Thanks, Ladies. Love the happy dances! Yes, Cake is a must. A life without cake? Not ever gonna happen!

You know, the heart rate monitor was definitely more than I intended to spend (I think it was $90) so I hope I get good use out of it. There were some way more expensive, though.
