Well, today and tomorrow, anyway. I did mine right before lunch, and the past two weeks of sacrifice meant a fair showing on ye olde scale. The next two weeks will be harder, though. My body is used to this punishment now, and it won’t give up the goods quite so easily going forward.
A new and unexpected challenge for me is the change in the weather. I walked down the hill last night at 7pm, and omigod it was freezing! Well, not *freezing* freezing, but the wind was strong and biting, and left me with an ear ache on both sides of my head–the first time that walk wasn’t just pure joy. The hill is often the only exercise I get on any given day, so it’s time to pull out the hat and gloves if I’m going to keep at it, or else work harder to find time to do it in the middle of the day, when the sun keeps the experience at least a little more forgiving.
How is everyone else doing? Keeping at the exercise, the healthy eating, the positive attitude? Things have been quiet with the team and with our gym hosts, but remember, you don’t have to do this in a vacuum.
