Yea, I did it. It does feel good and I am still being amazed at how much better I am getting up when I tell myself I need to get up to do that. Crazy isn't it.
How ever Last night was not one of my best nights. I gave in to the temptation of the bucket o'Cookies at my meeting. Not once but several times. And then I talked myself into buying a pack of cigarettes on the way home. The excuse was that it is such a long drive, it is late at night and I am getting tired. What butkis!!! what Hooie!!! I really should have made a phone call, but I have not replaced my blue-tooth yet and CT is a hands free mandatory state. This is a wake up call to replace it now instead of waiting. No more excuses.
I will have to give the coffin nails away this morning. I know I should just throw them away but it goes against my Yankee blood to waste. Kind of Ironic isn't it.
Well today is my off day from cardio and working out, in a organized fashion. Work some times gives me a pretty good work out. Well time to jump on the horse and drive to another day at the grind stone. Have a good productive day all.
This is my busy week every two months. Every night has some activity that keeps me away from home. So I'm finding it very hard to get my workouts in and cardio is almost definitly out on most nights. Aaaaaahhhhhhhhhhh.
I managed yesterday even though right after I was finished I had to run out the door to get to a town meeting. Then when I got home I was up way too late working on printing things, for tonights meeting that I need to go to, and I was trying to stay up with all the wonderful blogs that I subscribe to. They really help me to put the right perspective on my wanting to get healthy and fit. People like FitWit, Goloptious and Donnybelle really make sense to me and keep me looking to work on my whole life not just my weight. To them I say
Well after thinking about what they would say, I think I need to work on fitting some exercises in at work. You know simple things that I can do at my desk throughout the day. Say leg extensions, squats, lunges and what ever else I can come up with off the top of my head while I'm moving about the office today. Hey thanks Ladies you helped me out again.
Oh and I'm doing good with the smoking quit. Although Monday I did slip and smoke a 10 month old cigarette. I'll have to tell that story next time. Have a great day as I will be doing so myself.
Truthfully I have had some urges today, concerning smoking. As I did not need fuel today I was easily able to just push on through while I was driving (my normal Nemesis when I try to quit). So I will have seven days away from smokes when I crawl into bed in a few minutes.
I picked more asparagus when I was up a my folks garden. Made the asparagus toast again tonight. It turned out better, but I am starting to think I need to add something like paprika to give it some flavor life. I'll have to try that next time.
This morning was a decent Morning. When I did my weekly weight in I was pleasantly surprized (especially seeing how I had been seeking on several mornings during the week and it was not looking good). I was a double ballerina...
No I was 222.2 lbs. Now if I can only keep this going and not stall.
I think I may do alright as I will be golfing in two (count them two) leagues this year. I have not done that in about 8 years. I may be getting too much cardio at this rate and not enough . I don't know any thing for certain yet as far as how I will feel after golfing (I will be carrying my bag). Hopefully I will still have the drive when I get home to lift and get my strength training in. I'll be talking about this more in the future I am sure.
Any way I go to bed happy with todays number progress.
Well if you life in New England be careful who you cut off in traffic today
Just kidding. I'm actually feeling good about this and I think it is because on all of you, plus being honest about how I am doing with it. In the past I always tried to do every thing on my own, as I was taught to do by Society. This rarely really works. If I start to have trouble, with out the support of those around me, I am doomed to either fail or not be happy while struggling to complete what ever I am working on.
SO THANK YOU ALL for being here to help me along, even if it is just in spirit. Speaking of spirit I actually managed to get up and get moving this morning to get about 10 minutes of yoga done before I jumped in the shower. I have to admit that it does feel good to start the day off this way and I already feel like I have accomplished something today.
Well Time to get to the Grind Stone known as work. Hope all of the SP community has a wonderful Friday.
