Melting……if only!

I was hoping that this heat wave would cause me to melt…seriously!  Yesterdays official temp was 99..I am in upstate NY we get snow from Oct-May (really it snowed on my wedding Oct 6th and we have had snow on mothers day ) we are so not use to this weather.  Its 7am and its 82 here  I want coffee but its too hot – ice coffee anyone?!

I went to bootcamp Monday-Wednesday and then floated in my friends pool last night.  The heat has been killing my walking at work.  None the less I weigh in yesterday and I was down .4 to 183.

I will admit, I have been binging again.  Peanut butter in the middle of the night.  Its my crack.  I need to stop buying it.  oh and last night pizza and wings.  yeah I wasn’t cooking on a 100degree day.  yes I could of made a better choice but we were crashing someone pool..I couldn’t crash and bring healthy food they would of shut the door in my face!!

Anyway, I was reading Rachael Cosgroves blog the other day.  This entry here.  Its about a scale that doesn’t show you your weight.  Day one you step on it and it internally sets your current weight.  then every time you get on it just tells you your progress so you are –2 or +1 I think it even gives you a total..”you have lost a total of 5pounds”

I love the idea of the scale (not the price).  It lets you only focus on your progress and not you number.  So its more about your journey.  Yes I have lost XXnumber pounds vs feeling like OMG I am still in my 180s.

I think its pretty cool.  Today is a busy one I am doing 930 bootcamp then hair cut and getting ready for vacation.  I will be back tomorrow to post my Plan to succeed over vacation (hopefully).

Sweating at 7am ick – I seriously need to shower before bootcamp.  enjoy the heat my friends!  Drink lots of water!

I didn't know that's where you live. My son almost chose a college up there so I actually noticed how hot it was when I saw the national map yesterday.

So... I threw away my last jar of peanut butter almost a year ago. I plan to blog about it next month. I was getting a bit crazy with eating it, loved it, and for some reason one reader's comment was the straw that broke the camel's back and I literally walked away from the keyboard to the pantry then the trash can. The longer I have gone without the less I miss it. So, maybe I can do the same for you. Maybe the time has come to toss the PB.
