Welcome to Week 3 of Sassy's Fitness Challenge

Ok, so it's practically half way through the third week. So be it. It's that much closer to Friday.

Mostly, this post is going to be about random stuff and nothing at all of real interest or help to you.

First: I somehow lost 2 pounds over the last week! I was getting a little disheartened since I hadn't lost a single thing before now. I was convincing myself that the new muscle was simply cancelling out the weight loss. Luckily, I lost the 2 pounds (!) before that lie started to lose its powers.

Second: I am in love with Lean Cuisine Glazed Turkey Tenderloins. It's like all the best things about Thanksgiving in 5 minutes. I have no idea how they pack all that flavor into 260 calories of formerly frozen goodness. Seriously, I had to stop myself from licking the plastic container.

Third: I am wearing a skirt that I usually consider unflattering, i.e. makes me look larger than I actually am and, for some reason today, it actually looks good! I think the top I chose to wear with it is helping a lot but still. I'm even managing to look like I have curves. In a good way! Yeah!

Fourth: I had dinner with 6 firemen last night. Just me and the boys. From that experience, I have now determined one major difference between workplaces that are all women, and those that are all men. When men work together, they torture each other physically and with overtones of comraderie and good cheer - as in, "I bet you can't eat this entire jar of jalapenos/maple syrup/old bulging-sided apple cider." There was no end to the delight these guys felt retelling the tale of the night so-and-so spent moaning on the commode because of one of the above episodes. At least their torture is fleeting. Women's torture tends toward the psychological and the scars can last forever. I still wouldn't eat the jar of jalapenos though. Blech.

I've lost another 0.6 lbs. Not as thrilling as the first 2 lbs., but it is still a downward turn on the scale and, therefore, worthy of celebration. I can see the effects on my body, though, and most importantly, in my energy level and state-of-mind. I can't wait to see what the coming weeks will bring!
