I'm bemused by the fact that I did all the prep for this (xeroxing my ID, DLing and printing the forms, putting them into an envelope and going out specially to mail it) without footdragging: because this is precisely the sort of thing I footdrag over. Can only think it's because I'm not working. My thinking, if it can be dignified with that word, was always 'since I have to work I shouldn't have to do anything else I don't want to' like dishes and vacuuming and writing Christmas cards (but not laundry or cooking, for some reason.) And now, though I may feel a ghost of the donwannas, there really is no reason not to. The one thing I want to do but can't make myself is start doing those chair Pilates exercises I bought last spring. Maybe I don't believe they'll have any effect, though I still do my strengthening exercises twice a day while believing they don't have any effect either.
What evidently does have an effect is my half hour of bicycling. I can't believe the fabulous number of calories the machine says I've burned but the fact remains that my weight continues to inch downward in spite of the 'oh whathehell' reintroduction into my diet of white rice, white flour, chocolate, and even the occasional bit of cheese. Mind, my sister once did Weight Watchers and said that you had to eat the prescribed number of calories a day because you wouldn't lose by eating less. Me, I never found my body going into starvation mode and holding on to weight if I ate fewer than 1200 calories a day, but I suppose it can happen.
However I also suspect that ratcheting the machine's resistance up to medium is what's made my knees complain so much this past week. So no machine today and shall go back to the light side tomorrow and hope that helps.
