Ready for the Holiday!

Friday, March 29, 2013

Well, 65 minutes on the bike last night. Tonight and tomorrow will be the same. I think I need to spend 10 minutes on the treadmill also. I am so close to getting 400 fitness minutes this week I donít want to not make it. So maybe tonight since it is the ďeasyĒ day, I will add 10 minutes on the treadmill or 10 min on the bike after the workout. Since I canít set the bike for 75 minutes. It only goes up to 60 minutes I guess for crowd control purposes.

I am getting ready to splurge on Sunday. I am in control of brunch for my house. Gonna have waffles and pancakes, sausage and bacon, eggs and omelttes and hashbrown casserole. I am sure I am going to eat too much. I am also quite sure my digestive system will revolt. I am also quite sure that may be the only food I eat all day. Probably not, but there wonít be much consumed by other meals. I have not had a true splurge day since I started consciously watching what I eat. I may end up in a food coma, but I am looking forward to it. I think the Cincinnati Redís play on TV for their opening night game on Sunday so I will be in a food coma while watching baseball. I figure to make this my Thanksgiving in Spring.

I also have a sneaking suspicion that come time to gorge, I will have second thoughts. I have this suspicion because I am already having second thoughts. Not about the cooking. I plan to cook and enjoy the food. I think I will also be taking a walk because if I eat and sit down I am going to be miserable.

So, hopefully everyone has a great Holiday. Mine will be good. The food will be awesome and I am okay with that.

    Get that 400 and then reward yourself.

    I agree on Griffey. Everyone here wanted him to come home to play, but he was hurt a lot while here and never did much. And the arrogance was amazing. We are looking like we could win the NL Central again. Not many changes from last year. Now if we can do more than just make the playoffs.

  Saab....definitely not saying I'm going to keep them to 200...just funny what my favs are now! :) You can have Junior...he was an arrogant a** when he was here. We have King Felix Hernandez now! So hopefully our pitching will pull us through! And of course Ichiro! I'm hoping for a good season this year...we havn't had many since I have lived her for the last 30 years!

    I wish my choices were going to be only 200 calories max Robin. Seattle had a former hometown boy on their team. Griffey Jr. You might know of him. lol

  We are going more with an early dinner, so I am making my nearly famous roasted asparagus...if I could get away with it, I would eat the whole thing and it wouldn't even be close to 200 calories. It's amazing how your perspective changes when you start eating healthy. What things become your new favs! And I'm really looking forward to strawberries! OK....I'm a food nerd and I know it! I'm glad you have a plan and giving yourself permission every once in a while to pig out is not going to derail your success, as long as you get right back to it, which I'm sure you will! Have a wonderful time with your family and the Reds! Happy Easter!....Go Mariners!!!
