BL @ Work - Surprising Twist

When I got to work this morning there was an envelope in my box saying that I won 3rd place in the Biggest Loser at Work contest. The prize was $20. I'm not sure how I won. In the end I gained a couple of pounds overall. So I guess maybe the other 3 people didn't weigh in or they gained more than me. I know one lady lost 29 pounds and she didn't even exercise.

She drank a gallon of water a day. She ate at least one monounsaturated fat with each meal. She did a couple of other things, but I can't remember what she told me.

So, today I decided to stop planning and just to make myself do something. I met a co-worker at a local track and I walked 1 3/4 miles. I thought my knee was going to be in a lot of pain when I got home, but it hasn't. It actually feels a little better.

Sorry I have been MIA for a week or so. Congrats on getting the $20 for 3rd place. That worked out pretty good. I hear what you are saying about doing something. I went to the DR about 2 weeks ago and I am at my heaviest I have ever been. I need to exercise. So today I walked to the library, which I thought would take at least .5 hr to get there...got there in 15 minutes. So I might go a long way home. Also, good job on putting your stimulus ck towards debt. I haven't received mine yet. I am debating about putting it in savings, student loan or a laptop. I currently do not have a computer at home. Keep up the good work and I hope your knee feels better. H
