Falling down the rabbit hole

Well officially this morning I hit my first goal of 185. I am not stopping here, as now that I am here I can see there is still more work to do. I am just going to keep doing all of the things that got me here over the last 6 months and see how much I weigh when I look the way I want to. I have lost 26 pounds so far. My clothes fit better and I am able to wear 34s now rather than 36s. I'll not trade in my wardrobe until I'm 180 I think, just because I don't want to spend the $ now that I'm on the border. I want to be under it by a tad before that happens. I'm really excited though, this is a big day. I have not weighed this little since before children ('99 I think). There was a short time when I was on Weight Watchers in '98-9ish that I got down to 183. That is my lowest since college. So once I hit 180, we're talking early college weight. If I ever hit 170-175, that is High School weight. I don't know that I'll get there, but I'm going to see how far the rabbit hole goes.

Long night

I had a lot of trouble getting to and staying asleep last night. Part of it was my usual awakeness (I know that isn't a real word) that music helps with, but then the pager / work got in the way. The last time I saw the clock was a little after 3 a.m. Yuck.

Sushi Friday

I had sushi again Friday. I certainly had a lot more energy than I would have expect the balance of the day. It makes me wonder though whether the the food itself is making a difference or just a mental fluke because i was looking forward to it. It is certainly and expensive trial and error process but worth looking into. So far I've only been eating tuna and salmon raw, but I may expand my horizons on my next outing. Time will tell.

Tired and snowy

Well I'm back to my old tired self again. I have been since the weekend so the energy thing did not last long. It snowed last night and so coming into work was not too much fun this morning. Workouts have been good w/ Marsha and while last weeks was physically draining (muscle soreness and such), this weeks has left me more generally fatigued. I get tired of being tired.

Sushi and feeling great.

I felt really, really good yesterday. I had sushi with a friend at lunch, but I'am not sure that had anything to do with it. I had a really hard workout with marsha, and while it was very hard, I got it done. Today has not been quite as good, but still above the curve. It is a very rare day that I feel like I did yesterday. I'm thinking if I go back to my norm, I may again visit the sushi place and see if I get the same energy levels back. If so, I may become a regular.
