It is 104 degrees here today and I paid the price by taking four hours of cardiology tests like running on a treadmill and being tipped upside down until I got a head rush. That really made me pay the price and so did they when I almost threw up on their shoes. LOL

Yesterday I got out yesterday evening, which was a little cooler than it's been, and did 1 mile running and another 3 miles walking. Stayed in calorie range yesterday too. Today, water aerobics!

I paid the price today by going out and riding my horse when I really wanted to collapse on the couch after work. Had a big salad for dinner after that. Both things were great though, so I didn't really end up "paying" in the long run...

Today I paid the price by doing my weight training workout and staying within my nutritional range. Last night I did not eat after 8 and I survived (feel like I deserve a bumper sticker, "I survived the ... ). So, I can now start my streaking of not eating after 8. emoticon

Today I paid the price by doing my cardio at home this morning and then by walking Whiskey (in the rain) this afternoon because he was starting to bounce and clearly had some energy to burn off! He is now face down on the carpet and I am close to it too... :)

Today, or rather yesterday (Tuesday), I paid the price by drinking more fluid and made it water, and flavored waters, instead of lots of coffee and soda.

I exercised more, because I wanted to!

I didn't drink the whole 12 ounces of hard cider, even though it would have fit into my nutritional ranges for the day, because I listened to myself, and realized that I was perfectly happy only drinking 6. That the morning after a good day the scale showed a drop of one pound didn't hurt either!

A while ago, I posted a message about doing 3 small changes: Sign up for races, do three 20-minute weight workouts a week and don't eat after 8PM. Well, the 20 minute workouts has been doable, signing up for races has been doable, but the after 8 eating has really been a challenge. So, today being a fresh start as each day is and since it is 8:02 here in CA, I'm choosing not to eat tonight from this point on. This is my "I'm paying the price" = not eating after 8 tonight. One day at a time!

The best is yet to be.
