he probably had help getting there. - Little Jimmy Dickens
I heard this on the CMA show today (rebroadcast), Brad Paisley said it as part of his acceptance speech for "Entertainer of the Year", and it got me to thinking: Sparkpeople is a lot like he claims Country music fans to be - loyal to everybody. No true fan is against any entertainer and no true Sparkperson is any more, or less, supportive of any other. I love that about this place. Not like, love.
Anyway, this morning I went to the gym with the intentions of doing my favourite class: BodyPump. Unfortunately, I misheard the girl on the phone and missed the first half. At first I felt a little lost and disappointed but then, I hopped on the treadmill for a bit of interval training to warm up before doing some strength training. Cooled down, stretched and headed home.
Plotting my next maneuver is taking longer than anticipated..... clean, go for a run..... I just don't know.

I will not stay on the ground."
My last whiny blog was my last whiny blog. I'm tired of opening my mouth and hearing negativity fall out. And I'm certainly tired of looking back over my entries and reading it.
This isn't right, this doesn't look good, I'm too fluffy, and on and on... It's time to stop it.
So, the positive for this week:
I've received two gold stars (for Monday & Tuesday)
I've, apparently, lost two pounds since my last weigh in. (down to 130.5#)
I've run once. (3.42 kms @ 6.22 min/km)
I've eaten my goal amount of fruit and vegetables. (5+)
I've drank my goal amount of water. (8+)
Tomorrow is Remembrance Day in Canada and I have the day off of work. I called the gym earlier and they have two classes happening. Since I don't have anywhere else to be, I'm definitely going to go to one of them. Need to burn some calories and release some endorphins.

"Before you eat anything, I want you to ask yourself two questions: Are you hungry? And are you depressed or anxious? Then ask the following question: Can you find an appropriate way to address whatever emotions you've uncovered instead of suppressing them?"
Truth be told, it's not much of an "article" but it does give me a jump-off point to figuring out why I can't seem to lose these last five pounds/inches and keep them off. There's got to be SOME reason why, even after I stock my house with healthy foods, I run to the vending machine at the first sign of trouble.... I've just got to find it.

Water (2L), fruits/veggies - somewhere around 7 servings... no exercise (scheduled rest day). Calories - I *think* I'm okay... I loaded half of my plate with veggies for supper but 1/4 of my plate was ginger beef and another 1/4 was shanghai noodles. I couldn't find those in sparkpeople.
Hughy's new lifestyle is going okay. He didn't have any treats today. Tomorrow, we're going to go play at the park :o) before I go to yoga class.

I made it through the fruits/veggies (6), water (2.5L) and exercise (3km run) part of my plan today but when I was having my treat, I realized I'd had a snack that I'd forgotten to log. The good news is that, in the end, I was only 34 calories over and all my other numbers are good. (fats, proteins, carbs)
It was a great run tonight - AP 6:10/km - with the Hypothermic HM crew. Hughy came with me and he enjoyed it. Maybe he'll lose that 6 pounds the vet suggested if I keep bringing him out. Of course, I should probably stop buying him timbits after we run...... I always buy him two. Tonight the drive-thru dude gave him one (obviously he didn't know that the two I bought were for the dog) so I ate the third one. THEN I found some very nom-nom mini Rolos, dark chocolate, at Superstore, bought them and had a serving. Therein lies the oops. I *thought* I had 180 cals left to play with and it turns out I was 70 calories off. Oh well. No gold star today but that's ok. It was still a VERY good day.
