Calmed down

I felt terrible last night, but woke up in a much better mood.  I decided not to fast after I got on the scale (post lax-tea, mind you) and saw 126.8.  I then went to a "Burst" class with a friend at our local gym.  According to my heart monitor, I torched just shy of 500 calories.

Thank you, lovely readers, for encouraging me and giving me some perspective.  You are all too nice.  Fasts work much better for me when they are not punishment, so I ate two rice cakes with vegan cream cheese and jam for breakfast, one square of chocolate, and I just made soup (frozen veggies soup base, 90 cals, 1/4 c veg. stock, maybe 5 cals, 1/4 c tomato juice, not sure, and some Chik'n strips) with two more rice cakes.  I am going to take my cleanse pills and hope for the best in the morning.  I am going to run before my dentist appointment and probably not have much else tomorrow, since I am having some minor repair work done and will be all novocained.

I am seriously considering joining this fitness center for the winter months.  It's a chiropractic, new-age kind of place with a great class schedule and I will have somewhere to go when it is too cold/snowy to run outside.

Thank you, again, for the constant support and encouragement.  I have eight days to see 124.something.  I could never do it without you girls.

I promise to comment tonight and take photos in my running gear/of Moses tomorrow.

Hey, I'm new here but I love your blog.

Yuck, tell me about it - everything takes so much more effort in winter, especially exercise because I'm always too coldddd to run :)

it is all good, you have eight days. i am sure you will make it. don't stress too much. that place sounds awesome, you should definitely look into it more. i have a different problem here. here, it is too hot to run. thankfully, i have my own gym. ;)

I swear, laxatives make you gain weight or, at least water! Bastards!

Well done on your gym triumph, 500 cals go bye-bye! Yay!

I think gym in the winter is a brilliant idea. Starting to worry about you running in the snow.

Good luck at the dentist and have a great weekend! XXX.

Omg a real christmas tree! So cuuuuute!
I think gyms are fun, especially when they have all those cool classes and one hour of sweating just goes by so quick!

What cleansing pills are you using?

I know you can make it :) You're so close!
Stay beautiful, darling ♥

New Age gym sounds awesome! Wish we had one of those here. All we've got is the rich-b*tch gym I can' afford, a bunch of trashy ones with a history of ringworm, and the 24-hour sketch-fest by my friend's house...

Hope you have fun Christmas tree shopping! <3
