My training has been spotty lately. I was out of town, then Jenny got sick and had to cancel a couple sessions, then I cancelled Monday's. But I told her I'd see her Wednesday if it kills me. I need to be careful about my wording.

Last night I worked until 11 then went to bed. Around 1, p.snugg started whining. He never gets up in the middle of the night. Like his mama, he enjoys his sleep. He'd gone to the bathroom before bed, but I thought maybe he needed to go again. I got up and tried to put his leash on. He decided that meant play time. We did the dance of Trying Ashley's Patience for about 10 minutes. I gave up and threw him in his crate and put earplugs in. Around 3 he started to whine loudly and consistently enough that I couldn't ignore it any longer. I decided to give the bathroom another go. He finally allowed me to put his leash on and out we went. In my pjs and a jacket. He then proceeded to poop twice. Leapin' lizards, dog. We coulda taken care of this at 1am.

I couldn't fall back asleep, so I checked email and got on Facebook. Finally, I was tired. The dog, by the way, was already fast asleep. My phone is on its last leg and will randomly shut off. Seeing as it's my only alarm, I kinda need it. I checked it to make sure it was still on and I saw that I had a voice message. I'd turned the ringer off, so I didn't even know Faith had called. She saw that I was on Facebook and thought I might still be up. Obviously middle of the night phone calls are pretty serious, so I called her back. She's going through a rough patch, and we talked for about an hour. Around 5 I was finally able to go to sleep, only to have to get up an hour and a half later to take the dog to day care before hitting the gym.

It has been 6 weeks since the last measurements. In those 6 weeks, I ate myself through Ohio and have been snacking like a crazy person. So, my weight had stayed the same, which isn't surprising. However, I'm down 2% body fat, which is really what I care about. We're doing another set of measurements in 4 weeks. I think I can be down another 2% by then. My goal is to be down 10-12% total.

Some friends of mine might be moving into my complex. I say might b/c I was told April 1st would be their potential move in date. So, there is a slight possibility that this is all an elaborate hoax. But if they *do* move in, this will hopefully lead to fun bbqs and pool parties all summer long. I have a two piece that I've only worn twice before. I'd like to be able to wear it this summer. But right now my stupid boobs are too big. Even a 5% drop in body fat will help calm those suckers down.

In a world where I have little control over some things, this is one area I can control, and it's nice to focus on it. For instance, I have no control over work. The system is going to be down this weekend. The good new is I know about it ahead of time. I'm gonna hit up a yoga class Sat and Sun, and spin as well. I've lost so much of my flexibility it makes me sad. Anyway, it feels good to focus on my health. And even though I didn't really try or apply myself over the past 6 weeks, it was still nice to see a difference in measurements.

I'll take it.
