The days are really flying by... I can't believe tomorrow is already my last day at work!!! I'm a little excited and nervous. It means D-Day is quickly approaching.
I didn't post yesterday. I was extremely busy and ended up doing some things after work and didn't have time to log on. I did really well until dinner time. We decided to have order out from our fav local spot. I ordered a half of a fried pork tenderloin sandwich and an order of real fries. Wow, was I hurting later that night. The grease about did me in.
I know, my own fault. I did have onions and pickles on my sandwich. That counts for veggies, right?
I did say no to the SF ice cream sandwich my Mom offered me. Oh, and to top things off, I didn't get my rear in gear yesterday morning to exercise either. What a flop of day.
On to better things, with an exception or two... Today has been really good to me. I got up and went to the gym this morning. I paced myself at 6.5 mph on the treadmill and did my 1.5 miles in a shake over 14 minutes. In a week, I've skimmed a minute off my time. Yay! I know that if I push it on Friday, I'll hit my goal of under 14 minutes. (13:20 would be nice, but I'm not sure if I can skim that much off my run yet again...I'm going to do my damnedest!)
I also did all of the arm weights, except the butterfly machine, and some ab/oblique work, finishing it out with some decent stretching.
I just pulled Jeff's zucchini mock cheese sticks out of the oven. I'M IN LOVE! OMG - I was going to save them for dessert, but I've eaten half of them!
Heather - Hey there! Thanks for stopping by! I've read that you've been going thru a ton of difficulty and I'm impressed that you've been able to take care of yourself as well as you have. You rock it too! As far as exercise, you'll learn to love it one of these days. heh heh I have to stay in shape for the Navy, so that's most of my drive. Plus, I hate to admit, I'm becoming slightly addicted to the sweaty feeling of exercise! Oh, btw, I giggle at Turkey BALLS too!!! Iâ€™ll stop by when I have a few minutes one of these decadesâ€¦
Wanda, dear, thanks for the lovely words, as usual! Iâ€™m still rollinâ€™ along the best I can. I am so addicted to stopping in here, itâ€™s not even funny. I love all the support and itâ€™s so great seeing all of you so close to your goals. Iâ€™m so happy we made our gym pact and are sticking to it! I know itâ€™s helping me handle the stress and I hope itâ€™s helping you somewhat, too. And, kudos to you for acknowledging the stress drinking and attempting to do something about it.
Judi, Love, youâ€™re doing alright, too. I wish I knew how to send some of me your way. Iâ€™ve been reading your updates, but unfortunately, Iâ€™m really not sure how to respond. The whole sabotage idea is pretty much foreign to me so I wouldnâ€™t have much content worth a crap if I did write. However, I will continue to be one of your biggest cheer leaders and support you in the best way I can. I know you will stick to SB. Youâ€™ve done it this long and have seen some positive results. I know you will get to your goal weight in due time. You know the WOE, you know yourself and your limits, you are excising. As youâ€™ve pointed out, weâ€™re all different and it will take some time. And, of course, our slip ups here and there all make a difference. I guess itâ€™s just learning to be patient with ourselves. Accept that we will make mistakes and that they will temporarily slow us down. Itâ€™s all part of the cycle. But, weâ€™re still strollinâ€™ with our heads held high! By the way, I did check out your veggie soup blend. Sounds delicious! I will have to try it some time (before I leave, hopefully).
With that, I'm off to do a BUNCH of house work/chores/tasks/etc. I will be back tomorrow. Love to all! xoxoxox
