Nothing Looks as Good as Being Healthy Feels

Over the course of the past week, I have definitely strayed far from the game. I've eaten pretty much whatever I've wanted, whenever I've wanted. I've barely exercised- especially in comparison to what I have been doing. I was dehydrated a lot of days. As a result, I didn't sleep as well as I have. Stressful situations at work weren't as easy for me to deal with. My moods were, eh. And all I could think was just X more days until we're back on the game. I've been craving getting back on track and this past week has felt long. Long and...difficult without the communication and support and structure that the game provided for 28 days.

I thought it was hard being ON the game, but this past week proved that it was just as hard to be OFF the game.

Katie, Cyrena, Penny and I met up tonight for a quick pow wow before we get started on Round 2. We handed over the winnings to Penny and talked about this next round. We've decided to extend the game from 4 weeks to 6. We've upped the winnings a bit (everyone is putting in $150). Changed around the terms of the winners (winning team with the most points splits $400, the person who loses the highest percentage of their original weight wins $100 and the individual who loses the highest percentage of their starting weight each week wings $20). And changed teams. It's me and Penny against Katie and Cyrena.

After a quick stop at Whole Foods on the way home, I'm feeling prepared to get this party started tomorrow. But of course, I'm starting the game off with a challenge. On Saturday I fly to Chicago, spend two nights there and then head off to Indiana from Monday - Thursday for work. I need a game plan and will spend the next day or two figuring out exactly how I'm going to stay on game while I'm gone.

It all comes down to being prepared and thinking ahead. And that's just what I'm going to do!
