So, I slept through the gym this morning (and [ profile] argus7hills' alarm, and my alarm) and woke up feeling amazing at 9 am. Late, but oh well - apparently I needed the sleep. :) Called [ profile] beard5 and apologized profusely (I slept through his call to me at 7:30 am, wondering where the heck I was, too), then made breakfast and headed out to work.

I'm tracking my eating again, and amazed at just how much tea I drink. Not that it's a bad thing, since the only tea I sweeten is chai, and only when I drink it with soymilk (if I'm just doing the Bigelow Vanilla Chai bags, I drink it black). But just a few short weeks ago, the seven cups of tea I'm drinking now - was Mt. Dew. *shudder* No wonder I wasn't losing any weight!

Caught a glimpse of myself in the mirror just now in the ladies room, and was shocked. I can actually SEE where I'm firming up. My spare tire is shrinking, slowly (hey, 120 crunches 3x a week will do that!) and my arms aren't QUITE as bat-like. I might be able to do this after all.

In another note (sorry, I'm flighty this morning), apparently drinking 5 cups of black or green tea a day will help protect you from cancer. So here's to cancer prevention.

On the subject of tea.... I'm planning to order some from here. Can I pick up anything for you?

From: [identity profile]

No, I don't think so, but thank you. I can get most of those here. I am putting in an Twinings order, though. :D Can I interest you in that?

From: [identity profile]

I actually splurged here ( - they have amazing tea, and I usually get it the next day or so. I adore their Christmas tea, and the box usually comes STUFFED with free samples. Like, 20 free teabags. Seriously.

We keep iced tea in the fridge at all times (in South Carolina, it's almost a law!) In the past, I used one large black tea bag. These days, we've started using two green tea bags in addition, so we get the benefits without giving up something we love. *grin* (And we sweeten it with stevia, so no calories!)

From: [identity profile]

Ooh, good idea! I'm not a huge fan of green tea, but I keep hearing that black tea is just as good, so that's good. And I don't put anything in mine (unless I'm making traditional chai), so it's actually not caloric!
