Last night I meant to do more cardio in the evening but ended up working late and not getting home until 8:30. I'm off early today as a result though, so I'm going to try to make up some of it in the gym after work.

Then this morning things seem to be a tad bit more normal. 166.4 pounds, down 2.5 from yesterday. That extra, as others pointed out, was probably just water retention. Either that or I'm a WEIGHT LOSS FIEND!!! Yeah right. Let's see me keep up 2.5 pounds a day. ;)
