Stepped on the same new scale in the same spot in the closet and it weighed me 5 pounds lighter than yesterday... Pulled out the old scale and put it in the same spot and it said 183, just like yesterday. New scale is getting returned.
I joined a 5 day clean eating group on Facebook. It's run by a girl who works for BeachBody and sells Shakeology. She posted a meme about eating foods that come from plants rather than foods made in a plant... and then in the next thread, talks about having Shakeology for breakfast... so this was the question I posed to the group: "Riddle me this... why is Shakeology considered clean? Isn't it a product that is made from foods taken out of their original form and transformed into something else entirely, unrecognizable in relation to it's original form, where only portions of the whole food are used? I realize there are no funky chemicals added, but it's still processed to the hilt, is it not? Made in a plant, rather than in our kitchens?" I wonder what kind of backlash I'll get for that - I bet it will be more respectful than the backlash I'd get at MFP...
Speaking of MFP... it is getting freaking ridiculous! No respect for others and their choices what so ever... Just people posting gifs about how stupid someone is for their reasoning, I'm beginning to hate it there. Makes me want to go back to Sparkpeople. At least at SP, the MEMBERS accepted Paleo as a viable option, unlike MFP where they call it a cult. *eyeroll*
Got the pink band for my Fitbit. It's soooo cute! I love it.
4 mile run planned for today. I hope I get the treadmill I like. I only feel comfortable on one single treadmill in the gym, out of like 20 treadmills. It's sad really. Running with one of the girls who is doing Bataan... oh, that reminds me... gotta research flight costs again today.
Only waiting on one more 1099-MISC, then we'll be able to file our taxes. Presently, it's looking like between state and federal, we'll be getting in excess of $4000 back. Can't wait to apply every dollar of it to that loan and getting it paid off in November.
I was sent a spreadsheet at work that shows how much time I've completed and now much time I have left until retirement. The earliest I can retire from here is age 57, no matter how many years I have in... so, 23 years left no matter what. I gotta get these debts paid off so I can start saving for my retirement. No, I don't presently save. I WAS saving, but then I read Dave Ramsey and he said to suspend retirement savings for now, sock that money toward debts and then when the debts are paid off, you can save your retirement in record time. Logically, it's true. In practice, it could be true - if we could get our debts paid off. So, this is my motivation to getting those debts paid off. RETIREMENT SAVINGS! According to one of those retirement planning sites out there, I need at LEAST 3 million for retirement. *sigh* that's a lot to save... and rather depressing to think about. So, on to something else.
I'm gonna take a walk and go show my new band to a friend. Have a nice day, everyone.
