Today is day 5 of me being back on a diet (Pirated Weight Watchers). I'm back on the diet because when [livejournal.com profile] bractune and I stepped on the scale on Sunday, there was not nearly enough of a difference between my weight at 5'6" and that of my 6'2" boyfriend. That was enough to kick my oversized ass into gear. So I've been to the gym three times this week, and I've been counting my points like a madwoman. On the plus side, the amped up physical activity has me waking up easier in the morning. On the minus side, I could eat an entire pizza right now. And I fear next week because my weight this week was close enough to the range border that I know I'm going to lose 2 of my daily points after Sunday. So, I'll be hungrier. Possibly crankier.

On the other hand, if all goes according to plan, we'll be planting the grass seed in Dave's backyard tomorrow. (If all doesn't go according to plan, we'll be doing it next weekend.) Possibly finishing up the painting in the dining room, and stripping the wallpaper from the bathroom too. It all depends on how motivated we are, I guess.

I suppose I should get back to work. It's build Friday, so things are actually pretty calm, just a lot of administrative clean up and prep for the upcoming new build on Monday.

A bagel and a Pepsi later, and I'm still very, very tired.

It's been a weekend of late nights, double bookings, lots of driving, and remembering those days way back when we could stay up until the sun came up and still function and feeling just how much older we are now.

It's said that exercise gives you more energy. For the last two weeks, my exercise levels have increased dramatically. But I'm exhausted. I'm too damn tired to do anything else. When does it switch over from exhausting to energizing?

On the plus side, the exercise is working. In the two weeks since I started my aerobics class, I've lost a solid 5 lbs, missing only two days of some kind of work out during that time. I've been highly inactive for the last three days (pogoing with The Kimberly Trip on Saturday was the high point on my physical activity scale for the weekend). However, I have a full week ahead of me. Aerobics Monday through Thursday evenings. I think I'll take my bike to work on the light rail on Friday and ride home. Then Saturday I'm kayaking in the morning, and probably doing Yoga in the evening. And finally, Sunday Bike ride needs to happen.

If I keep this up for the remaining six weeks of class, and continue to lose weight at this rate (which unless my plateau level has changed, it should be possible), I'll be back down to 145 by August, and I'll fit in my clothes again! Yay!!!
