I'd like to thank Tyler at 344 Pounds for giving me a serious plug. If you haven't checked out his site, you should. If you're coming from his site, welcome! My goal is to lose 100 pounds in a year (duh!) and I'm about 1/3 of the way there. Be sure to check out my World's Lamest Giveaway. I've got a sweet "talking" pedometer to give away. Also, if you're new to my blog, you can subscribe or follow me on facebook on the sidebar to the right. You can also follow me on twitter if you're really cool.

So even though I indulged, I still managed to do something I haven't done before.
I exercised when I got home and went for a run tonight. After all, it's day two of my May push. I've also been fighting my grazing instinct fiercely tonight. I'm going to stay strong and drink water instead of eating. Hopefully, getting some sleep will make me less hungry. Then again, I may dream of eating a giant marshmallow and wake up missing a pillow.

I'm hoping my efforts are going to pay off for my weekly weigh-in tomorrow. I'm not sure they will, but I always get nervous around weigh-in time. I'll also be taking measurements again and seeing if I've moved at all.
