I've working out, nothing big, just walking and running mostly.
I've been so busy with school and other stuff that no, I have not been counting my calories on SparkPeople this last week at all. I eat healthy food to begin with and think I've been snacking enough to keep my calories in an acceptable burn instead of starvation zone.
I stepped on the scale this morning and cringed as I waited for the digital readout to tell me I screwed up and that the Coke I drank on Tuesday, coupled with the 3 chocolate dipped cocoa rice krispie bars in the last three days (but they were good!) has resulted in a big weight loss dud. NOPE. I'm officially on the rice krispie treat and Coke diet because dang it works!
In other news: I found a happy-place today. I started piano lessons after nearly two decades without touching a piano. It all came flooding back. I'm weak and obviously don't have the comfort level I did years ago but it felt so natural and perfect! It's something I can be a success at no matter what else happens in life. We don't have a piano at home and I can't afford a snazzy sixty-plus key Yamaha or whatever keyboard, so for the time being I'm going to practice by plugging away on the only thing I could afford. This:
It's cheesy, cheap, and meant as a kid's toy.. Oh well. Music is still music. I'll make do like I always will. Maybe I'll luck out and Santa will have a spare big-girl keyboard lying around by Christmas ;)
