Too early to celebrate...

but I am patting myself on my back. I am down 5 lbs from the stress-gained weight!  Yeah, baby.  I've been good about keeping my food journal and yes, recording the BS like the piece of cake I had for breakfast this morning (damn you Mother Nature - should've cursed men with PMS and chocolate cravings). SparkPeople suggests giving yourself a 5 minute pep talk each day so my inner voice kicks in around 30mins into my workout: "come on girl, you can do it - just give it 5 for minutes". do you know what's so great about that 5 more minutes?  the song changes and I get totally pumped and ready for the next set of punches and kicks.

I am also proud that I haven't spent any money. Wait, that's not entirely true. I did donate $20 to Doctors Without Borders to assist securing medical supplies for crisis in Haiti. I now have $40 until next payday and I feel ok about it. I even received my consignment check in the mail a few days ago (a lot lower than I anticipated, but it's something) and I haven't even bothered to deposit it yet. I think I need to open an ING account and send it there so accessing the money will be extra difficult. hmm there's a thought.

ok - done primping and congratulating myself - back to work!

Thanks for the reminder, I will donate to the cause today. It really makes you grateful for what you have when you see what the people in Haiti are going through.

Baby steps, baby steps rule! Well done. I think Haiti counts as special circumstances.
Have a great weekend and keep up the fab progress!
