Wii Addict

Yep.  I am addicted.  I guess I replaced the smoking with Wii.  I guess that is a good thing? 
Today's Exercise:
Wii Fit Plus:  7 minutes (advanced step & penguin slide)
Wii Golds Gym Dance Workout:  16 intense minutes of Latin dance and cardio boxing (kicked my butt again!)  Burned 105 calories in 16 mins!
Wii Walk It Out:  45 minutes
And my food was good today too!  I had gotten back up to 155 on 8/22/10.  (My highest was 166 on 11/16/08 and my lowest was 143.5 on 1/12/10.)  As of this AM, I am down to 153 lbs.  So that is good.  Right now, I am focused on getting to 140 lbs. 
Today was a pretty good day!  I wasn't as tired today as I have been.  I did take a Lunestra last night and slept well, so I think I will take another tonight.  But the Lexapro today did not wipe me out like it has been, and I did do much better at work today.  The pressure is on, so I have to focus.  David's first day of school went well. 
Still no word on the hardwood flooring.  Praying for Thursday.  Kitchen cabinets to be delivered tomorrow.  Going to Cape May NJ for the labor day weekend.  May have to deal with Hurricane Earl.  I will make sure I charge my Kindle before we leave.  I will be happy to read all weekend to be honest.  Still reading "The Passage" by Justin Cronin.  Getting tickets to go to Penn State Football 9/18/10 home game against Kent State.  (That could be part of my being in a better mood today!)  I am a Penn State Football nut!  Oh, and Jersey Boys on Broadway with Mom and Paul 9/22/10, and neighborhood picnic 9/19/10.  So if I can survive this kitchen mess, I will be ok.  Had a bad hot flash today, and also blood sugar dropping and it scared me a little (kind of felt like a panic attack coming on).  But I got through it ok and no panic attack and no Xanax.  Going to Dr tomorrow at 3:15pm for follow up on meds.

Wii fit is soooooooo addictive, but it\'s good when it substitutes something that is bad for you. When I\'m on my days off I do 1 - 1 1/2 hours on it, scale it down to 30 minutes when I\'m on my night shifts though - just wish I could bring it into work with me - would probably work out on it on and off most of the night !!!

Glad Lexapro didn\'t wipe you out so much today - probably your body getting use to it, and glad your mood has lifted and your getting excited about things. Enjoy all your activities.

Does David have off next week on thursday and friday?

Are you eating enough if your blood sugar dropped?

Keep up the great job. You are on your way. :)
