Treadmill Blues

This is exactly how I feel about running on the treadmill right now. Sadly this cat makes my treadmill look tiny but really it is just the cat that is oversized. Hope everyone has a great weekend and good workout weather!

Wednesday Weigh In

Today I was down another .4lbs. Not a big number, but I really need to start tracking my measurements as well because more importantly than seeing progress on the scale, I can feel it in my clothes! That is the best motivator ever.

Tuesday nights have now become my Biggest Loser/Last chance workout. I do swimming and then come home to watch the show while riding my trainer. Watching the transformation of these people is so cool and inspiring. It also gets me ready for my own weigh in the next day!

I hope everyone is having a great week and are staying warm! We actually have a tiny chance of sun in our forecast this weekend!! Hooray!

Sad Puppy

Mom, why on earth are you on that trainer when you could be walking with me?

Dear Sun

Dear Sun,

It feels like it has been months since I have seen you. I am so sorry for not appreciating you more when you were around and even at times complaining about your heat. I would really appreciate you coming to see me soon, even if it is just for a short visit. I promise we will do all sorts of fun things together and I will never take you for granted again.

Wednesday Weigh In

Today I knew I was not going to make it across town to weigh in at Weight Watchers so I weighed in this morning at home on my scale which oddly is not nearly as kind to me as the WW scale. I only lost .6lbs this week.

Oddly enough, I was grateful even for that small amount. I did not even deserve that after this last week. The snow and ice hit here this week and instead of taking an opportunity to work out at home, I reverted to slug status and spent several days with my nose buried in books.

AFter I emerged from my self imposed hibernation, I did my best to regain my lost motivation. It was easier than I thought because I realized that after just a few days of eating crap and being a slug, I felt like slug crap. Shock right? I had a tennis coach who always said "If you eat like crap, you play like crap". As a teenager, I rolled my eyes at this but it is so true. Our bodies crave good healthy food and reward us when we give it to them.

Today the snow and ice hit again but I am reacting in a different way. A long, somewhat slippery walk with the dog, a bike rde on the trainer, and a balanced dinner. Now, I can stick my nose back into my books for the night!

First Tri of the year on April 3!!!
