Let's see how this works....

Friday, January 27, 2012

I've been throwing in extra minutes this last week because our friend, the birthday girl, wants to go to the casino tomorrow for breakfast and gambling. I love our Girl's Gatherings, but hate the casino.
While casino food has gotten better (I'll tell you about living in Reno some day...) they still don't offer as many options as I would like.
Of course it doesn't help that PMS is here. That is going to make some of the bad choices seem sooooo good!
Sooooo...extra 1/2 hour here and there is the plan in an attempt to balance things out.
Plus side? I'm at almost 3,000 fitness minutes this month.


Aaaah, poo! Did I say 3,000??? I meant 2,000.....

How many times???

Thursday, January 26, 2012

I feel this entire week has been full of dodging food.

My DH bought some peanut butter chocolate chip cookies on Saturday. A lot of them.

My work has a new year celebration lunch yesterday. Wow! There was a LOT of food. I went elsewhere for my lunch.

Then today some people brought desserts because they felt bad that they forgot and didn't bring anything yesterday.

Not to mention Starbucks and my lovely local grocery store that has an AMAZING bakery.


*packing my handcuffs* Think I need to throw in a nose plug and a blindfold while I'm at it....

  I found it funny your co-workers brought more dessert because they forgot the day before. Sugar by guilt. I can picture all your dodging. Good job on all your 'moves'! emoticon

    That's some awesome willpower!!! You should treat yourself with something other than food since you were able to avoid all the temptations! emoticon

Embrace DFL!

Monday, January 23, 2012

Okay, so I know what it is like as crew to wait for the last walker or runner during a long race. But never been that last person. With these 1/2 marathons coming up there is a chance that I am going to be that person.

It doesn't stop me, but it does make me wince a bit.

Read this article and I have a new outlook.

I might even start a DFL team one of these days....

    So what if you are "that person" at least you are not giving up. Think positive!

I went to Starbucks after swimming for more than 2 hours.

My hand was hovering for what seemed like a long time over the pastries. Not even the low-fat ones. I could still smell pool on my skin and I thought "I deserve it. "

Even as I got into the car I was hanging onto that thought.

I don't know how or why...but I managed to only walk out with only a coffee.


From now on I think I'll use the drive-thru.....

They brought in 3 dozen donuts for those of us brave enough to make it to work in the snow.

*head desk*

I'm busy imagining that they have been licked and sneezed on while I cuff myself to my desk.

Meantime I'm finding things like this to keep me entertained....
