I had a great weekend away with my best friend. We did a 2-day basket weaving class, had a lot of laughs and an all-around great visit.
I worked out, all three days, managing to keep up with my goals for that.
Meals, however were a different thing. I did great the first day, pretty good the second day, but had wine, chocolate AND a doughnut the third day!
I haven't had any of those things since the first of the year.
I guess I am not ready to be on the road, and eating in hotels and restaurants 3X a day...just yet.
Back home yesterday, and 100% back on track! No more road trips for me for a while.

Today, the last day of winter, I am sitting at our cabin in Maine, looking out over the frozen lake, and looking forward to some happy, healthy, summertime fun.
I'm getting ready to go for a run, down the lakeshore road, if it is not too muddy. Putting in my miles for the team.
Then it is fix the gutters, clear the decks, and bring out all the patio furniture! What a wonderful way to spend the day.

You know how they say that if you can do a thing, or not do a thing, for 21 days in a row it either makes or breaks a habit?
I just noticed on my tracker that I have worked out for a minimum of 60 minutes every day for the past three weeks, and in fact only missed one day in the last 30!
So, does this mean I can now officially say, "Yes, I work out"
Because I sure would like that if I could - I have always thought I work out sometimes or I work out when I can, or if I have to.
Ya, I'm starting to like this working out thing, and I think it has FINALLY become a habit.
Now, if I could only be as diligent with my other kinds of work! Oh well, nobody's perfect.

I have always worked out - well for the past 20 years or so, most of the time anyways - but never as diligently as I have since joining SparkPeople. I haven't always liked it, but I do it because I know I need to. I come from a long line of morbidly obese woman. and I don't want to be in that category. I am overweight and I am in my 50s, which means I have to work all that much harder to be fit.
Well this past two weeks have been brutally busy at work, and I have had to really wedge in my workouts wherever I could. I did it on most days, but for the past week I have been working 14-15 hours a day and just didn't have the energy to add a workout at the end of the day.
Here is the milestone part:
Yesterday, the third day in a row that I was not able to exercise, I was working on this project, and I noticed that my mind kept wandering to workouts... I wanted to run, or ski or just get up and move A LOT. I was actually crabby because I was missing my exercise!
Well, I finished the project last night - I was totally happy to be done with it, and I was plenty tired. So no workout then either. But I couldn't wait to get up this morning and get on the treadmill! I actually greeted it when I went into the room. It was like seeing a long, lost friend.
I have always worked out, but I haven't always like it.
Now, I am happy to say, I work out BECAUSE I like it!
That is a milestone I never thought I would reach.
