These days I find that I'm replying to other posts more than I'm writing in here. Which means I'm procrastinating, but how can doing things for weight loss be bad?
This past week has had a lot of cake in it. Festive, perhaps, but I'm getting tired of it. I think I've had enough cake for now. Fortunately it'll be either stale or gone by Monday, so no more cake-worries for me. There was something intriguing about the slight raspberry taste in Albert's Thesis cake. Chocolate, chocolate, chocolate, with a hint of raspberry that had me eating it trying to figure out if my taste buds were playing tricks on me.
A lot of food, in general this week. I've been bringing my lunch every day, which is good, but thesis parties have food at them, and I like to taste a little bit of the yummies. And of course last night was a celebration of my birthday with all you can eat sushi... wherein too much food was consumed. I feel different after having eaten so much food, more energy. Not sure what that means, but I guess it's OK to go over calories sometimes... just not as much as I have been recently.
On the gym front, I've been doing very well
Monday - Weights (without trainer, but I'm a harsh mistress) and 65 minutes on elliptical
Tuesday - Walked 2 miles
Weds - Balls, bands and Bars = 45 minutes, Elliptical for 35 minutes (sore, pain, ow, but I kept at it despite the fact that my legs were tired)
Thurs - Evening out getting fat with friends. Discovered that you can push a car, and it will go.
Friday - 65 minutes elliptical
So that's almost 3000 calories burned. I want to do stuff tomorrow, so I'll get to 3500. Maybe swimming!
So they finally open the jacuzzi at the gym, and I'm soo excited about it, I come home tonight after seeing a movie with friends and I see that I have enough time to go to the gym. I bring a bathing suit and towel, intending to elliptical for a while, then submerge myself in bubbly bliss for 10 minutes. And of course, when I get to the gym, I see that the jacuzzi is closed until Sunday. Woe. I put off using it on Wedsnesday... Regret. I can imagine how good it will feel to relax in it, the way the jets massage tired muscles. Yearning.
When I am a rich successful doctor-doctor, I'm going to get a jacuzzi of my very own. That, and a personal chef to have dinner ready for me when I get back from the gym, and to give me a massage whenever I want one.
