Whoot Whoot for Friday!

I know I know I have only been back to work for 4 days but boy am I happy to see Friday!!!  It helps that the weather is promising that the rain is not going to soak us today!!  All this rain and dark weather makes me want to do this when my alarm goes off at 4:30am....

Today's promise of sun ruled out and I rolled over knowing Em and I could run to the park later!  I am amazed that I have already lost 3lbs!!  How did I do it?  Well simple.  I am no longer grazing all day at a lovely buffet I call home!  I only have what I bring to work to eat for the day.  I am making an effort not to come home from work and eat for 3 hours straight so that could have something to do with it too! 

I want to give a big shout out to my very best running buddy ever Jill at One Tough Cookie and a Beer!!  She is running the Nahant 30k on Sunday.  One thing about Nahant is that it is ONE BIG HILL!  Seriously it is a small island near Boston and it is all hills!  Head on over to her blog to cheer her on!!  Go Jill!!!


  1. Nahant is such a great race. We did it last year and we are wishing we were doing it this year. Good luck to Jill.
    Happy Friday!

  2. Oh my gosh! I tend to graze more when I am at work! Being at home makes it so I regulate more, since I can just have a MEAL instead of umteenmillion snacks!

    Congrats on the 3 lbs! Yay!

  3. I agree... eating only what you take with you is so much better for weight loss and maintenance.

    Thanks for the reminder about Jill's race... heading there now!

    Coming from the Fitness Friday Blog Hop.

  4. Congrats on the 3 lbs drop! Good job as well for taking control of your eating. I'm getting better with that too.

    I found you from the Fitness Friday blog hop.

  5. I hear you on eating less while being at work. Sometimes I am really grateful I only have what I brought, but there are other times I really really wish I had more. Yay on the 3lbs... every little step is good!

  6. Happy Friday! Congrats on the 3 pounds and good luck to Jill. Off to check out her blog.

    Have a great weekend!

  7. Well done on the 3lb,I eat all day when I'm at home that's why I can't lose it but with all this running I think it may be moving :)

  8. Congrats on the 3lb loss! I work from home and i have learned not to keep foods in the house that i cannot control myself with, such as cashew nuts and chocolate chip cookies!

  9. Same thing happened to me when I went back to work. Love it!
