1 day down... about 80 more to go!

Yesterday was a success! My biggest personal challenge is getting past the first full day on diet/in the gym and that hurdle has been jumped. Working in a stressful environment creates difficultly for me in avoiding night eating when I get home from work and I often lack the energy/drive to get my workouts in. I worked from home yesterday so that I'd have a 3 day weekend to be sure I'm back in the groove before facing a work day.

I was also excited when I was at the gym on the elliptical and got to watch the E! THS: Female Bodybuilders, which I had wanted to see. Even better was that my new ad that launched last week ran while I was watching... that admittedly caused me to erupt into applause on the machine. It's the little things. My favorite part of the show was the figure girl that commented: there are times where you don't want to talk to anyone by the day, you're often exhausted and at the gym sometimes you just can't speak because anything that comes out of your mouth will be a curse word. But this is a choice that you've made because this is something that you want to do and feels good to you.
