Blog of the Week and Polar Bear Plunge

I've been running on fumes this last week.  I haven't been this busy in a long time.  It's not like I've been overloaded with any one thing (although sometimes it feels like it).  I've just had something going on every evening this week.  So instead of having a laid-back evening where I go to the gym, maybe pick up some groceries, write my blog, and catch a little TV, I've been occupied with other obligations.  I didn't get a chance to exercise on Tuesday or Thursday and I'll have to squeeze it in tonight. 

I got caught up with The Daily Plate this morning for last night's food.  I thought I'd gone over my calorie limit, but it said I had only taken in 2288.  I keep telling myself I must have forgotten something because I felt like a little piggy last night.  Tonight we have some old friends visiting and they're craving Indian food.  This might prove problematic.  I'm going to try to keep my intake low today in anticipation of overeating tonight.  I've never been out for Indian food before, so I might not even like it.  Who knows.

Tomorrow is the Polar Bear Plunge.  I'm excited and only a little bit nervous.  I broke the $400 mark thanks to so many very generous donors.  If you donated, thank you so much.  If you haven't, there's still time.  Donate Here!  I'll be posting pictures and a video on my blog for everyone to see.

For those of you new to my site, each week I give another weight loss or fitness site a little link love.  Since I didn't post yesterday, I'm going to have to do the Blog of the Week today.  I discovered this week's winner because of the blog's fantastic name!  I stayed because each post is incredibly well written.  He only posts twice a week, but what he lacks in quantity, he more than makes up for with quality.  One of the reasons I started blogging and reading other weight loss blogs is so I could learn and grow as I shrunk (see what I did there?).  This blog is responsible for my 28-day challenge for the month of March.  Steve's posts are always informative, relevant, and fun to read.  This week's Blog of the Week is Nerd Fitness.  Go check out the site.  You'll be glad you did.


  1. Cool - have fun with the Plunge!

  2. I'm so glad you made your goal!!! :) I was willing to shell out major bucks if it didn't turn out that way :D.

    I'm excited to see you plunge tomorrow! :)
