I'm sitting here at the end of a very long day which is only the start of a VERY LONG week. I promise that I'll have many more insightful things to say next time, but right now I just want to give you quick update and then crash...
CMA week is always a lot of work and a lot of fun. I'm excited about going to the show Wednesday night as well as several other events and parties throughout the week.
It's interesting how I have gone through phases with concerts and live events. When I was younger, I couldn't get enough. Then, I got married and I enjoyed being at home with my family. I still went to a LOT of events, but not nearly as many as before.
Now, I'm divorced and I find myself happy to be out of the house for almost any reason. So, I go to everything.
That's not the only reason though. I think I took things like concerts, music industry parties, and award shows for granted. Since my divorce, I have a new appreciation for this lifestyle. I have always known that it was a privilege, but now I have a stronger desire to participate than ever before.
Still, it isn't fun to wear a suit when you weigh over 350 pounds. Then again, it isn't fun to wear anything when you weigh over 350 pounds.
I am just going to suck it up, put on the suit, shine my shoes, and look as good as I can.
Oh, and try desperately to not eat too much of the free food at all the parties...

I had another great week. I averaged only 2000 calories per day and I walked over 49,000 steps, which is 8,000 more than last week. I even walked over 4.1 miles in one workout on Sunday afternoon.
I lost 2.4 pounds since last week and 15.8 total (in 28 days).
