Today is weigh-in day, but I’m out of town so I won’t officially weigh in until next week. My scale at home told me that I was down almost two pounds, but I know that I can do more than I’m doing. That will be my goal for the upcoming week.
My brain has been scattered this week, and I know that I need to get more sleep. I know that my workouts will be longer and more effective if I’m not exhausted, and I won’t make mistakes like I did yesterday. I’ve been taking the stairs to get to the roof of my tall building (where the gym is,) and my legs were feeling it yesterday. I stepped onto the treadmill to do inclined intervals, and as I was stepping off, I twisted my ankle a little. It’s not so bad that I can’t walk, but there’s a bruise just about my ankle bone that is screaming at me today. I did manage to do some floor exercises too before heading back downstairs to shower and pack.
Today will be a rest day which should be okay because I’ve planned out my meals. I’ve been dodging cupcakes more than usual this week, but that’s over for now. I baked over 100 red velvet cupcakes Monday for a movie themed party (that I did not attend,) and I didn’t eat them. I didn’t even taste them, but I did receive compliments on them which made me happy.

I whipped up a batch of tie dye cupcakes for game night at a friend’s house Tuesday too. I tried those so I can tell you that they were good. I didn’t take any with me when I left because I knew that if I didn’t have them, I wouldn’t eat them. As long as I can stick to that plan I should be okay.
Baking allows me to feel artistic, but it’s a complicated practice when you’re addicted to sweets. I don’t eat them nearly as often as I talk about them, but I know that I have to be careful. I like them too much.
I’m baking a little more often (and on a larger scale) lately, and I’ve given some serious thought to whether or not it’s something I can do. I haven’t decided yet. I thought about whether or not I should mention it here too. I know that by discussing this I’ll be judged harshly by some, but I’m judged by them anyway so why not? This blog is about my life, and it’s something that I’ve been doing lately.
I also shopped for dresses this week because I am seeing His Holiness the Dalai Lama speak Saturday, and I want to look my best. I chose two dresses, and I’ll
probably definitely post photos on Facebook and Twitter to ask which one I should wear.
It has been a good week, but it has also been long. And it’s not over yet. Is anyone else ready for the weekend? What do you have planned?
