That's what I am telling myself today.
I WAS doing great! I woke up at 8 and ran. Stepped outside and bbrrrrrr was it cold! I did my brisk walk as instructed by Robert Ullrey and thought "I'm ready for my first 1.5 minutes!" The motivation was there.....buuuut.....
You ever have one of those dreams where you are running and the more you run the heavier your legs get? No matter how hard you try your body literally weighs you down?
AM I THE ONLY ONE WHO HAS THAT DREAM?? **pouts**
Well, anyway my run today was like that dream. I was actually VERY surprised but my legs felt soo heavy and I was out of breath! Was it the cold air? Was it my body stating "ENOUGH CHICA!! BACK OFF!!"? By the time the 3 minutes hit, I was sputtering and tripping all over the place. I don't understand....two days ago I did it like it was a regular. Wasn't easy, but wasn't this dang difficult either. I am still debating on repeating week 3 and seriously leaning towards doing that.
After I got home and showered, still wondering in disbelief and soaking as much hot water on my achey shins as allowed, the girls took me to Tom's Christmas work party. I, again, did FABULOUS!! Carrots, no dip, brocolli, no dip..no meats and water. I didn't even cringe, I just did.
We came home and docorated our own house. Actually, I think we imploded it as there are more lights, tinsel, and broken leftovers on my floor than hit the tree. My Harry Potter train set broke, the Ski Slope keeps falling off the tree and is now sitting in the corner of our living room. As my girls poetly described it at dinner: "Dad, it looks like Santa tried to throw up in our living room."
That's my project for tomorrow.
AND, as Tom made the work pumpkin rolls and imploded the kitchen AND as we haven't been out to dinner since.....gosh, when did we last have money? We still don't, but went out anyway :o)
It was Red Robin.
I forgot my glasses!
Screw it, it's treat day.
I'm not even going to talk to my scale in the morning.
BUT!! After....or maybe before cleaning the house, I start my new classes and my Slim in 6.
I love Mondays....start of a brand new everything :o)

I stumbled out of bed this morning, went potty and got on the scale. It's a really loud talking scale and it shouted at me that I was 186. That kind of woke me up. I didn't even have to play the scale game to get it at the number! I stepped off and thought, "no, too aggravating to go down, put it on SP, then it goes up 4 pounds the very next day." and stepped back on the scale: 186.1
Really? I can take that number? I haven't seen that number since .... gosh way before I stopped smoking :o) Usually I can go up pretty fast, but down takes weeks, months....maybe even years!!!
I guess that number makes all the shin pains of running totally worth it! I want to run again today, only it's rest day.
BUT!! Slim in 6 is here! Let's check it out!!
I am a soooo excited today. I'm going to decorate, I'm doing Slim in 6, I'm going to run tomorrow and I'm going to see if we can get to 185 by ... next week.
and not up.

Ok, I slacked. No excuses allowed. Slap my jiggles and move on forward.
Today I read all the motivating blogs and thought "I really need to do this...I WILL do this!" I'm no quitter. Nuh uh, no way!
So, I get up to do this....I leave the comfort of SP and my computer buddies to stretch and out of the depths of my mind comes....
"but" -----------and said with an excessive amount of whining
"the shins, Oh! the agony of the shins!"
No problem. I'm a fixer. I fix. I research, I will not lie down!!
First....the medicine cabinet. Strongest thing? Exedrin **pouts, but will have to do** The bottle reads not to exceed 8 per day? No prob...I'll take seven of these bad boys.....check.
My bottle of water.......check
MP3 player jacked from the kid.........check
Rober Ullrey's Week 3 podcast.........yup, check
and, for the shins.....
DUCK TAPE!! with Peas n Carrots please....
NO ONE TOUCH THE VEGGIES IN THE FREEZER WITH THE DUCK TAPE!!!
Week 3, Day 2? Bring it baby!!

And that is what my tracking order says. "shipping date, December 1st". I've got my tele set up, my mat. All I need is my Slim in 6. I'm pretty excited.
This with C25 should get me started. Should, I hope I hope I hope!! I'm hoping by February, I will be ready for the next step and soon I will be the fitness guru champion with a body enough for Playboy!!
Is that the door? Could the UPS man be here?
Maybe I'll stretch, put on my running shoes and go C25 a UPS truck.

It wasn't that bad. I did my running with my birthday girl. She's 11 today and if I could ever keep up with her it would be a miracle. I guess I better get working on my own miracle then. Did Week 2, Day 1 and the calves didn't hurt at all, shins ached, and the knee kept trying to "pop"...but I did it. And I really want to do it again, actually. Why do we rest when runners run daily again? I know there was a reason, I just forget. I do that sometimes.
What was I saying?
I wonder if it's possible to be so addicted to Spark People. I was concerned I was on here more than exercising and that it would never do. But, it just simply means I take a lot more motivating then others. Without reading Yoovie's and others blogs, I wouldn't have ever had the gumption to jiggle my arse in public. This exercising would be unnecessary if i could just move my arse up to my breast. I would just call it good.
I bought my Slim in 6 last night. I should have been sleeping, but I actually record infomercials now. How bad is that? I Tivo'd Slim in 6, then bought it. LOL Can't wait to get it.
I'm really trying not to give up mentally. I feel I have. It's frustrating tho to lose 2lbs and gain 5 in a day by day scenario. I'm too stubborn to give up physically. I will do this. I will lose the weight and be "cute" or maybe "hot" someday. Or I am going to be the healthiest jiggler on the running tracks.
I know! I will make a motivation collage. Do you think my hubby would find it wierd if I take a bunch of pics of hot girls in lingerie as my motivation and stick it on our bedroom wall or fridge? Maybe not the fridge...that might look awkward next to the kid's drawings and report cards.
I think I will go work on that now...I'll make it a family project :o)
