Darn it woman, leave me one or two will you?

You will love tonight's :)


Ama, I also second almeeker's suggestion the wrist braces. I don't have carpal but I have deQuervain's, a type of tendinitis that affects the same area. The braces are great. I got mine from the orthopedist but Walmart and drug stores have a pretty good version as well.

The other thing I can recommend is massage. I was told I would need surgery, and the thought of being casted and not being able to write (um, and do my JOB) for 6 weeks sent me into a panic. My chiropractor has a massage guy in her office and he worked wonders, I swear.

Hey, man, I'm on the west coast! I still have an hour before tomorrow's red!

Check in:


1. Calories below 1300. 1090, 1297, 1298 (sheesh!), 1428, 1269
2. Exercise 6 hours. 30 min, 30 min, 60 min, 60 min, 30 min
3. 2 big sports bottles water. Yes, No-1.5, Yes, Nope, Yes
4. Sleep 7 hours. 6.5, 7, 7, I wish...it was 5, 6.5
5. Eat clean. Yes, Except for the peppermints at the office, Yes, Except for the fat free froyo and two Life Savers, 3 slips: butterscotch candies, Goldfish, and more froyo
6. Log everything; post it daily. Yes, Yes, Yes, Yes, Yes
7. Name an excuse I've used, and shoot it down. 1. "It's a special occasion." This time of year, there is always a 'special occasion'. If I let things lax for every one of them, I'll never be on plan. I can celebrate the occasion without eating junk. 2. "I'm too busy." What exactly are my priorities here? Work or health? I have to make the tough choices until I learn to juggle everything even when things are crazy (no pun intended). Yes, exercise takes time, but it takes the same amount of time to make a good food choice as a bad one. Exercise relieves stress, so I should do it even more so now! "I'm going to be up late working; I need the energy." I'll have more energy if I fuel myself the smart way than if I snack my way through the night. This is not college and my metabolism knows that! "I had a good workout so I can eat more." Yeah, if I want to stay the same weight, instead of getting back to my preferred weight! "I have PMS." Suck it up, buttercup!! I suppose you'll have the "vapors" next, and have to take to your bed. Drink water, eat healthy, and stop using your lady parts as an excuse!

Cassie and Amy - I will definitely try a wrist brace! Since ya'll mentioned it I remember a long time ago having wrist pain and getting a brace from the drug store... can't find it so I'll go pick-up another this afternoon at Walgreens. Amy - I did push-ups last night, and it felt great! I stuck a big note on the fridge reminding me to do push-ups. I wonder how many cals push-ups burn... Cassie - So glad you were able to get around having surgery! It has been years since I have had a real massage. Bet I can talk DH into a wrist massage tonight though! Love the ideas Ladies - thank you!!!

I'm going to second massage as a treatment, hot rocks, Skinner's and vitamin-e oil baby! Okay, it's great if your SO helps out, but I cannot recommend professional massage enough. I have a girlfriend who is a massage therapist, it's always in my best interest to keep her indebted...
