Well that is just back a$$wards

Monday, December 05, 2011

Here is a question.
Why is it that many times when the scale is going down that we are motivated to move more, but not when it goes up?

It just seems silly. Even when I am doing it I think to myself that it is silly.

It is just one of those wacky things.

One another note, I worked out at home yesterday. It was cold and I just couldn't convince myself to go outside...even to the gym.

I actually jogged (not walked...jogged) in place/up and down the hall for 20 minutes. Okay, I broke it up in the middle with weights, but still....

My knee had a few things to say about it later, but it wasn't nearly as bad as I thought. Hmmm...I think this deserves a bit more investigation.

This being said I am not prepared to attempt this in front of humans yet. My cats were confused enough.

    Great question... lol, I've never really thought about that, but it really is a silly thing, isn't it?

Good that you got in 20 minutes of cardio.

There are Spark workout videos available online on this site. I've used them, and they're actually pretty good. You can pick and choose what you want to work on. All you need is something to watch them on... (your computer, laptop).

    That is *so* true about the motivation and weight loss vs weight gain! So very, very true.

keep up the hard work!

    Because mentally the scale up is like being defeated. You have to re-juice yourself and realize its a small set back and it requires looking at where it went wrong. When my scale goes up I throw that no good liar out into the hall closet for a week or 2 then recheck, usually by that time the scale decides to stop lying and show me my true previous weight... or it gets the closet again ;]

    I totally agree - and I too do wonder why it is.

Keep up the great work and have a wonderful week emoticon

I've been having issues with my scale. The actual scale.

I could stand on it 3 times or more back to back and the weight would change between 0-4 lbs.

Tried new batteries. No good.

Then I thought about how long I had that scale. Maybe it is time for a new one.

Got the new one all set up. And it read 4 lbs less.

So all this work *is* paying off.


But now I have to wonder how many times my old scale lied to me.

Screw it. I'm taking the win!

Possible Scam!!

Thursday, December 01, 2011

With all the shopping during the holidays, I thought you all should know.

I don't how many of you shop at Costco, but I became a victim of a clever scam in their parking lot. It happened to me and it could happen to you!!

Here's how the scam works:

Two seriously good-looking well-built guys in their 20s came over to my car as I was placing packages in the trunk. They both were shirtless and started wiping the windshield with a rag and Windex with their highly-defined chest muscles and rock-hard abs exposed. It was impossible not to look. They asked for a ride to 10th Street. I agreed and they get In the back seat. On the way, they start talking dirty about what they want to do to me. Then one of them climbs over into the front seat and begins kissing my neck and begs me to pull over so he can make love to me!! While this is going on the other guy steals your purse!!

I had my purse stolen last Tuesday, Wednesday, twice on Thursday, again on Saturday, and also yesterday and most likely again tomorrow.

Suck it up , Buttercup!

Monday, November 21, 2011

It started with the fact that I moved a 1 1/2 cords of wood on Saturday.

I was signed up for a 5k walk the next day.


I've done it plenty of times. At a higher weight I've done 15 miles. But I was sore and it was %$&#@&% cold!

Turns out the walk was in a lollipop shape. I can't even begin to tell you how many times I thought I could just turn around and no one will know. And if they did know....they aren't going to care.

I knew there was an icky hill coming up....and I was cold....and I was sore....and they already got my money for the fundraiser....and I was cold....and....and....

Then I had another one of my "Suck it up, Buttercup" moments.

This is something along the lines of how the conversation went:

"Really? You are going to turn around to shorten the walk by....what....a mile?? Gurrrrl, you are going to cheat yourself out of a mile because it might be hard? Because you might get out of breath on the hill? Suck it up, Buttercup!"

My inner voice can be kind of a bitch. What really stinks is that she was right.

So I told her, "Fine. Would ya shut up already! I'm going."

Thankfully, none of this was out loud.

I did it. The hill sucked....I sucked wind...but I did it.

Mostly because I knew that I would either have to lie to *everyone* or tell everyone the truth.

And I knew both options would hurt more than the soreness in my legs.

    Good for you!! You'd have been disappointed in yourself if you would have turned around.

    Yes! Good for you! That sense of accomplishment probably lasted a lot longer than the achy body will. :)

That time again

Sunday, November 20, 2011

We got our wood for the winter yesterday. And since DH is still fighting a cold I told him that I would stack it.

BodyBugg results for the occasion:
Just over 2 hours of moving wood around.
Just under 1000 calories
Just over a mile in steps

Guess who slept really well last night AND who isn't going to the gym today...

Of course, I have my Cancer Moves Me walk today.

Now what did I do with that Advil.....

    That home stuff seems to be better exercise a lot of the time than a gym!! Have a good time at your walk today!!
