It may look like I'm going slow but I'm just getting started.

The Scale is Moving... the wrong direction! OK perhaps the trip to Trader Joe's didn't help. I did eat a box of Candy Cane Joe-Joe's in two days. But waaahhh they're so good. I only bought one box though. One box per year. I call that moderation. I am beginning to feel angry and depressed about my weight and lack of motivation though. You would think walking 60 miles (and training to walk 60 miles) would burn off some weight. No, I added weight. Partially because I wasn't doing any other exercise during that time because I could barely walk after the long weekend walks. I had been training for a mini triathlon and when I stopped that the weight came back. I guess it requires constant vigilance. I have a lot of excuses for why but no solutions other than just starting back again. Starting back from scratch. I have a new training partner. He's a little hairy and slobbery but he enjoys going for walks (and no it's not my husband). We adopted a dog this weekend and he definitely requires walks to burn off some of his abundant puppy energy. So I figure I'll ease back into it with the walking. And I will say it here for all to see:

I am signing up for the Tri for the Cure sprint triathlon in April. I don't have to do it well, I just have to do it.

    What is it about those Candy Cane Joe-Joe's? So many people are eating them (according to their Facebook statuses). I must find out what I'm missing!
