Successes in my failures

Saturday, August 02, 2014

Alrightie everyone!

How'd your first go?


I guess it depends on how ya look at it.

I went for a run.

I went at 10 am so it was cooler as we are experiencing 100+ weather here in dead and brown California....

It was 88 degrees


I did half my work out, but I was sweatin' like a BEAST I tell ya...

I mean, look at that magnificent face!!!!

That, my Sparkies is a selfie of all selfies if I ever saw a selfie. emoticon

I was NOT however, able to do my 21 day fix or Jillian and I'll tell ya why.

I went to a swim party.

with the girls

which leads me to my other goals:

stay vegan/no wine

yeah...well here's where I thought "aw man" then went " well, no wait" because I have these conversations with myself see so sometimes it's hard to understand even what I am saying to myself let alone ...



WHAT I was saying is this:

Even though I DID have wine/beer I only had a couple and completely flooded it with water in between. I mean like 4 ox wine ... 12 oz water

I was completely sober when I had my daughter pick me up



As for the vegan thing.

I kept it real all day. Followed my plan. When I got there I saw Ms. Maha had fresh raspberries (score) salads (score) and guacamole (totally doable in small amounts)

so I loaded my plate up...mmmm spinach, strawberries...mushrooms...wai
t, that's not a mushroom...that's ....that's chicken??

aw crap.

but see, I still consider it a win because I didn't KNOW it was there. Of course I didn't like spit it up or whatever...I ate it but for where I am ... it was good.

see? success in my failures day 1. emoticon

Now my I consider August 1 as a "rest day" for my DVDs and carry on or should I double up the workout on Sunday? hmmmm

I'll play that one by ear.

FIRST I have to work.

like really, go to work

all day.

I know

whoas me.

Happy Saturday Spark Peeps!!

Go get your "rowr" on!!!

    Heh heh - I love the quote from Scott Pilgrim vs The World: "What do you mean Chicken Parmesan ISN'T vegan???"

Good for you - as I just wrote, I'm NOT gonna sacrifice all my pleasures either!
