The lovely Kim coined that phrase this past week, and it was so suiting, I had to steal it!

I'm sorry for the blogging MIA this past week. Ordinarily, it would mean that I've gone off in a corner, to stuff my face with chocolate. This time, I was genuinely busy -- it's a crazy time at work, and my head has been hitting the pillow at 10pm each night. Sad, but true!

I had no time to exercise this past week, and there was a chocolate-almond incident at work the other day (hey, I was under the gun and someone put it in front of my face - I blame that person entirely!). Today, at the end of the week, I have been feeling sloth-like. I hate that feeling.

So, I was not looking forward to weigh-in this morning. Thought about skipping it. But, sometimes a girl has to face up to reality. I even took off my glasses before weigh-in this morning, to help "minimize" some of the potential gain - lol!

Anyway, I had to step on the scale three times to make sure that I wasn't dreaming.

Down 2.5lbs!

Honestly, my eyes welled up with tears. I haven't seen a number this low in about a year.

I'm down 8lbs now - soooo close to my first 10lb goal.

Oddly, I don't feel like I lost weight this week. But I guess all of the diet vigilance payed off. Even with the chocolate incident. I guess it goes to show you that it's all about balance.

Need to go and change that ticker. Gonna make it a 10'er next week - what do you say?
