Terrific Tuesday

Tuesday was another great day.

First, my Mom and I walked together, which we haven't done in a long time. We walked a mile by walking the streets at our house. It's a tough workout because there are a lot of hills. We knocked this out first thing in the morning, which is what I prefer because I don't have worry about getting my walk in at a certain time. Also, the weather is nice at 5:00am.

My first call of the day at work was at Changing Spaces Moving Inc. (CSMI). They are a great group of people. They have been supportive of my efforts and have been supportive of my business. I am thankful. I've even got a little office there. It's also known as a closet. We love to joke around about it.

A few months back, Joe with CSMI ordered a company polo in my size, which I though was really cool. The only problem was that it was too small. I think he got me a 5x. Well, I can't wait to be able to wear that shirt one day. Then I can officially be considered a professional mover. My moves will have to be priced by the job, not by the hour because it will be a slow process with me moving your stuff. Estimated move time for me moving a one bedroom apartment: 2-3 weeks. Ha!

I had lunch today at The Fish Market downtown with a nice lady that is a fellow blogger. Also, she's a professional writer. I'm not mentioning her name because I didn't ask her if I could, but she writes a lot about weight loss, and I learned so much from talking with her. What I liked the most about talking with her is that she bases her writings and opinions on facts and studies from qualified experts. Whenever I think of weight loss or dieting, I just go by what I've heard from other people, and I never bother to do any research. So, I am going to try to start reading medical journals and other documentation to learn about weight loss and other health topics. I've never read a medical journal, and don't know what I will encounter. I'm sure they are lengthy and contain a lot of terminology that I will not understand, but it won't hurt to take a peek at them.

By the way, I had grilled rainbow trout for lunch at The Fish Markett, and I asked them to not use any seasonings. That was the best meal I've had at The Fish Market. It was very tasty. I guess because the fish is so fresh, and they did a great job on cooking the fish.

Well, I got my exercise in today and I went over just a little bit on my calories, carbs, and fat. Today was another good day, and I sneaked a weigh-in, and next Monday the numbers are gonna be good.

Have a good Wednesday.

  1. You definitely need to read up and learn as much as you can - you will learn alot from fellow amazing bloggers, but what works for them may not work for you. I look at this journey as the greatest science experiment of all time - I'm learning so much about ME and what my body needs/wants in order to do what I want it to.

    Great job on your walk! I also like early morning workouts!

  2. If I ever need a pick me up, all I have to do is read your latest post. Your positive attitude shines through and it is refreshing. Keep on keeping on!

  3. a walk with your momma sounds great! 5am does not. Good for you though, you've ventured out where I choose not to! HA!

    Rainbow trout - never had it!!! Sounds good!

  4. It sounds like you have a good day ahead of you. Keep up the good work!

  5. Very nice to read! You're doing so awesome---I've said this many times...but you're on the way to an amazing transformation...I mean absolutely incredible!!

    My best

    ps--that fish sounded so good!

  6. I can't wait for you to post the things you learn!

  7. sneak weigh ins are okay! There's a fish market over in the South Loop area here in Chicago that I haven't been to in a looooong time but OH GAAAWD..the whole (save for the head) catfish and fried shrimp they have?!?! that's a splurge purchase for real!!
