Better Things Are On Their Way

Friday, May 27, 2011

Title courtesy of Dar Williams.

Scale today read 170.6. Seriously. This is why I hate the scale. Okay, that just means I really, really have to be good over my travels. I should be able to handle that.

Well, today is a fast day anyway, so that should help. I ran yesterday. Ended up going faster than my husband for a while. Since I'm 5'7" and he's 6'2", that's quite a a feat. Did a good power, vinyasa yoga this morning.

Okay, it's Fabulous Friday and we are playing Dungeons and Dragons tonight, and so that is always fabulous! Sometimes, someone will bring a bottle of wine to split as well, which would be nice.

Probably leaving tomorrow morning early and will be on the road through Wednesday, so updating might be sporadic, we'll see.

Have a great holiday weekend everyone!!

Onward and upward!

I Know the Territory

Thursday, May 26, 2011

I've been around. It'll all turn to dust and we'll all fall down, and sooner or later, you'll be screwing around.

Okay, just a little Meatloaf to start you off. That's what I ended up doing at karaoke with a friend last night.

Weigh-in 170.4 yuck. Oh well. I'll keep at it, and it'll go down again.

I wasn't bad yesterday, just a few munchies and one Reese's Big Cup in the evening with my cherries. I don't think I actually ate that many calories, but the evening ones were sugars, thus water retention.

Tonight, I shouldn't eat anything on the way into my fast for tomorrow. Then the weekend of travel. I can do it, just focus on veggies and fruits the whole time I'm traveling.

It's Thankful Thursday and I'm thankful for clouds. The weather finally cleared up yesterday, and it got way too hot! Give me a light cloud cover and 65F any day over sunny and 80. I know, I should move to Seattle. I'm working on it!

That's enough for now. Lots to do today!

Onward and upward!

Bought a One-Way Ticket Back

Wednesday, May 25, 2011

I'm running late this morning, so quick and easy.

Weight: 169.6
I better be really good today and tomorrow.

I did all my strength and 2 miles of running yesterday and 15 min of kickboxing this morning.

Staying on track. I just have to keep busy, no munching. Karaoke tonight, so time for exer-singing! Maybe I'll do Total Eclipse of the Heart or Midnight Train to Georgia. The latter is where the title is from.

Woohoo Wednesday: ran 4 miles nonstop this weekend! Woohoo!

Onward and upward!

Dancing Through Life

Tuesday, May 24, 2011

Title today is from Wicked (the musical).

Hello all! Yesterday's fasting went as well as expected. I did end up grabbing a fruit juice partway through the day to sip on. It happened sometimes. It was a good 100% juice and puree Odwalla drink.

Weigh-in 169.8. Not as much of a drop-off as I would have wanted to see, but I actually still feel a bit bloated, so my suspicion is that it will dive again tomorrow. A week ago I was 171.0, so I'm still down a pound overall.

I need to run today, and try and remember to get the husband to run this evening as well. I'll do two miles this morning though just in case it rains later and he won't go. I also didn't get to strength yesterday, so that needs to be done, oh, about now.

Anyway. Food should be set for today. I have errands to run, but that just means I'll be too busy for any extraneous eating. Lunch is packed.

Tuesday is tip day and my tip is learn to listen to your body. Stop before you put something in your mouth and think about whether you need food, want food, or are just used to eating food at that moment. Be mindful.

I'm still working on that tip, by the way. Okay. I have a full day ahead of me!

Onward and upward!

    This rain is messing with my running too, just when I'm starting to get focused! I hope you have better weather than me and can make it outside.

Four Stong Winds

Monday, May 23, 2011

Today's song lyric is by Neil Young but I used to sing it at camp.

So, yesterday has some good) ran 4 miles without walking and played accordion as part of party entertainment for an hour or so and some bad) over munching.

It wasn't that bad 170.6lbs this morning. That will drop significantly after today's fast.

I've already done yoga this morning and I'm all set for strength this evening.

Time for some Motivational Monday words:
"Nothing will ever be attempted if all possible objections must first be overcome."
Samuel Johnson

Don't overthink. Just do!

Onward and upward!
