The trucker was hauling drilling equipment when his load bumped against the steel framework over an Interstate 5 bridge. He looked in his rearview mirror and watched in horror as the span collapsed into the water behind him....More >>

In my last entry, I wrote about hoping my "holding pattern" would break after the stress about moving had subsided. I was cautiously optimistic about the changes I wanted to make after moving and ended with "The real test will be where I am two weeks from now!"
Well, it's two weeks from then and I'm doing okay. Not great, but, okay.
I've started going to the gym on a semi-regular basis – at least twice a week, aiming for more.
I finally went grocery shopping in my new neighborhood and bought food to start making my breakfasts and lunches at home.
I also, almost on a whim, started tracking my Points again on the Weight Watchers site after recording my weight this morning. I didn't start the day off on a particularly positive note (leftover cheese blintzes for breakfast), but I recorded it anyway in an attempt to keep myself accountable. It felt like a good step in the right direction and also reminded me that even after a not-so-healthy start, the day is still salvageable.
For the upcoming week, my goals are all about 3s:
1) To go to the gym at least 3 times (not including my visit to the physical therapist)
2) To make breakfast at home at least 3 out of 5 days.
3) To bring lunch to work at least 3 out of 5 days
I usually hesitate to set specific weekly weight loss goals, but, following this theme I'll go out on a limb and say I want to lose 3 pounds this week!
I won't wait 3 weeks to write again, though. ;)
