Running again!

It's been a crazy week already at work. Why do I put things off until the last minute, and why do I get more things done when I have 12 things to do?

I ran again today. Second day in a row. Walked with my mother on Sunday. So that makes three days in a row. I just need to keep it up. That 30 pounds I have gained need to come off!

I was watching a show on the Discovery Channel last night about morbidly obese people, and some of the reasons that people gained weight. I found it interesting that food for some people makes your brain release dopamine, so you get a high like you do when you take cocaine or drink alchohol, but the more you eat, the less receptors you have, so you need to eat more to get the same feeling.

The interesting thing was that when you exercise, it increases the amount of receptors you have, so there is a double benefit... you eat less, and you burn more calories. I am going to just have to exercise more!

Well, more work to do before tomorrow morning.
