Wednesday weigh-in: No more drama, please!

In case you missed my tweet yesterday;

I'm able to sustain the energy needed to keep up with a dietbet for about two weeks, and they last for four weeks. I feel really motivated at the start, but then, meh.

It doesn't help that the last couple of weeks have been crazy. A family member continues to have health problems, and was in and out of the hospital. I spent time visiting that I should have used to grade/plan for classes, and then got very behind on everything. I skipped working out yesterday to get caught up.  I have a  little more to do today to really be where I need to be, but I am going for a run today anyway.

This family member is not going to change in the ways necessary to really recover, so I need to stay ahead to be ready for future developments. I hate that this is the reality of the situation, but it is.

Back to me for a moment -- my  weight is down a little today. My weigh-ins have a lot to do with how much I ate the day before, and yesterday was a light food day.  I have been tracking faithfully all week, too, which makes a difference. In the last couple of weeks, I had let that slide, mostly because I didn't want to see the too-high calorie numbers I knew would be there.

No more dietbets for a while. I just want to do the simple things: Exercise, track my calories, make good food choices, drink water, get enough sleep.

On an annoying note, the left Shift button on my netbook keyboard is only working about half the time now. I think sooner or later I am going to have to break down and buy myself a decent computer instead of these crappy $200 netbooks. It IS, after all, my primary work tool, so I should probably make an investment in a decent one.
