Day 17: A good day gone bad day gone good!

Huh?!  The start of today was great, I did my video 30 day Shred by Jillian Michaels, then got all dolled up for late morning martini's with some Hip Chicks.  Yeah, you read that right!  Not really on the diet, but when duty calls!  Being an event planner I sometimes get to do some fun things, today we taste tested a signature martini.  It was good!  Then in creeps the stress of finances, taxes and it caused me to stress out!  So I drank a big ol glass of white wine and then went for an AWESOME walk!  We walked 5 miles in 62 minutes!  I KNOW!!!  Pretty freaking amazing.  It felt so good every turn we took. So it started and ended on a good note, so stress is gone and I am feeling great.  Just about ready to watch The Biggest Loser.
In the middle of that I spent some more time reading (painfully) YOU on a Diet.  It is just horribly written but there is tons of good info.  So I am going to share my new/reminder info that I read.
-Type 2 Diabetes ages you one and a half years for every year.  YIKES
-Belly fat increases your risk for Type 2 Diabetes, and the inflammation in the inner belly fat breaks down your ability to protect you from some cancers!  "In fact, there is a direct correlation between waist size and an increased risk of hormonally sensitive tumors such as breast cancer in women, prostate cancer in men." (pg 118)
-This is a no brainer and something I am looking forward to no longer having: Joint Problems.  Increased weight causes more joint issues that can go into your later life!
So those were some things that made me realize even more that my weight is affecting more than just my self-esteem!

Today I ate 2000 calories  Nothing out of the norm!
Burned: 1272!
Weight: 205.4

I can't wait to see what tomorrow brings!  :o)
