I worked out again today. Why do I keep announcing it like this?
Because I need some accountability to get myself back on track. So, hoping to get Day 7 announcing that I have worked out.
So far, so good.
Day 1: spinned for 20 minutes
Day 2: ran 2 miles outside in the sunshine
Day 3 (today): 20 minutes on elliptical, 20 minutes on bike
It really bothers me that I was down to 155 than I emotionally ate on cookies and pizza. Now, I am 158.4.
It is not the number itself that is the big deal. What is really bothering me is I made a mental goal of 155 by New Year's Eve, my Grandma's Christmas and was at it but seemed to like I let it go. Well, I can't go back - only forward!
On a side note, many people around here wanted a white Christmas. For the longest time, I did, too, until I ran outside yesterday. As long as it doesn't snow, I could run outside. That would be a great Christmas present in my book! In fact, I am going to head over to TJ Maxx and see if I can find some cheap outside running pants. Right now, I have capris and kinda afraid to get frost bite if I run outside of those.

Today I did 20 minutes on the spin bike. I was going to do more on the arc trainer but wasn't feeling it. Hoping to go for a run tomorrow. I really want to go outside tomorrow. It is supposed to be 40'. Might be a possibility. Never thought I'd be a winter runner but the treadmill kills me. It's a struggle to run two miles on it.
You know, I am looking forward to this week because it means less things to worry about and more time for me. In other words, time to work out! In fact, that is the reason I am looking forward to break... I can work out for two hours solid like I did before!
Just wanted you all know, I did work out today.
One other thing..
I struggle with spending my money properly. Today I spent around $50 on groceries. It felt like a victory! WIN!
Tomorrow's goal: Run!
And, Monday's goal: Spin at noon

Sometimes you drop the ball.. with weight loss, with life, with __________ (fill in the blank).
Well, this week I did.
Boy, did I?!
Let's see... summed up I worked out ONCE and didn't eat properly at all. This week I ate nearly a whole pizza - that was Wednesday - and an appetizer, pasta, and half a bottle of wine.
When I did work out on Thursday, I was the happiest! Otherwise, I have been a crab to be around. I hate it when I don't work out all week. Honestly, I feel like I am losing control of me again. Not a fun feeling. So, here I sit, feeling , but it is only my own fault because I made these choices.
In the next week, I hope to work out for 20 minutes each day. The idea is to just start to work out, and relieve some stress. In other words, get back to ME.
I just had to fed up. Since losing 100 pounds, sometimes I feel like people think just because I am maintenance stage, I don't have issues. Or maybe that was my perception. Oh, the issues are still there and I just wanted to let you know they don't go away. They are still there.. sometimes even lurking!

Just got back from cookie weekend. It was emotional draining so I am not feeling so "sparking" right now. In fact, even through I ate like 10 cookies today, I should work out but I don't know if I will.
So, all I am going to do is show you the quilt of my old shirts - from college years, races, and trips - that my Grandma made me!
Now, I think I may sleep off this sugar high...
