Who, I might point out, was another pear-shaped loser.
But seriously, I inadvertently freaked out FitFunk and Beej with my post title the other day -- and I didn't mean to.
I said I was taking a break from daily weigh-ins for awhile (although I still see the value of such a tool), and I scared them into thinking I was taking a break from my weight-loss efforts.
Let me take a minute to reassure y'all that I may change tactics and approaches, but when it comes to weight loss, I will “never give in, never give in, never; never; never; never - in nothing, great or small, large or petty - never give in," as the big man Winston once said.
I needed to see peaceful images today, and I was happy when I spotted some daffodils in Central Park.
Tough day tomorrow, bringing MIL to the doctor's and a lawyer. Hope it goes well.
Goals for this week:
(I really can't believe I'm going to try and do this but what the heck -- it's spring, time to push for personal growth)
1) Get up early and get in a workout -- be it cardio or weight lifting. It just has to be something.
2) Walk to work at least four days
3) Eat on weight-loss portions
Hey -- isn't it amazing to think we may end this day with some kind of national healthcare program in place? I'm not 100 percent convinced this particular legislation is the best it could be, but I'm glad to see some kind of safety net put in place for uninsured folks.
I was a freelancer for a long time, and health insurance was always a big worry. It's just not right that people can be bankrupted by an illness or unfortunate accident. I'm glad at least that this should offer folks some protection against that (I hope, anyway).
