Buy-Cherry-Pie-in-July Hopes

If anyone can tell me what book that phrase comes from, she will be my long-lost soul sister.

But I digress. Yesterday I finally went to the gym and did a light workout--20 minutes on the treadmill at 3.7 miles per hour (I usually run 6 or 6.5 mph) and what I felt I could do of one of my weights workout at half the reps. It felt pretty good.

I also, of course, weighed myself on the gym scale. 173.6. Not as light as I'd hoped, but not bad, because it means I've lost almost 2 pounds since last week.

TODAY, however, the scale in my office said 171.9. Oh yeah. I'm trying not to get my hopes up too high, but on the other hand, Monday is more than two days away, and I don't REALLY need any alcohol or ice cream sandwiches (even if they are Skinny Cows) until then, right?
