Not a great starting day for me.

I cried all morning, then cried some more later on after the key hole to my car fell out on the road. It wasn't a great day, to say the least, but I didn't eat the brownies or Cranberry Bliss Bar at work that were right in front of my face.

So, my number (and I don't mind posting) is 256.1. I've seen worse, but it will definitely improve in the next 6 months. My goal is to shed at least 30 lbs., and that's healthy in that amount of time, so I'm satisfied with that. I found out that my healthy range is 118 - 142 or something, so I hope to get down to 140. . . one day. It will happen.

I also came to a realization today that S. lives in a walking city. . . I have a loooot of work ahead of me!

Angry Sugar: a blog designed to help S. and A. overcome health problems!

Challenge: S. and A. will begin exercising and eating healthy
Start date: November 30, 2008
End date: May 30, 2008
Wager: Loser will take a trip to visit winner

This lovely blog is going to be filled with thoughts, challenges, and inspiration for our motivation to lead healthy lifestyles in our respective locations of Boston and Austin. (That has a nice little ring to it.)

Here we will also post our weight loss along with what days we worked out and for how long. Any amount of exercise is fair game, aside from working (since Starbucks causes me to walk around a lot for the hours I'm working and that wouldn't be fair to count).

Basically, we want to motivate each other to take ourselves seriously and treat our bodies with respect. We aim to improve the quality of our lives and prevent genetic predispositions to cancer and other serious health problems.

We're in this together. Wish us luck!
