Quads on FIRE

Sunday, September 09, 2012

Okay...second training day for the Trick or Treat Trot! I had company this time, my friend's teenage daughters. The 16-year old made my week when she saw me walk in with my workout clothes on...

"You look TINY!" emoticon Don't think I've ever been called "tiny" felt good!

I will admit that when I'm wearing clothes that ACTUALLY fit, I look WAYYYYYYYY smaller than I do with non-fitting clothes! Wow...12's here I come! And look out, 10's, you're next!

As for the quads were not fully recovered from 2 days ago, but I still did the training...only, my jogging was SLOW...I think I actually was walking faster than I was running. hehehe Figure that one out!

AFterward, the girls offered to buy me a snowball, if I'd take them to the snowball stand. (For all ya'll who ain't from down heah, a New Orleans snowball just ain't the same as a sno comparison!) I got the kiddie size (about 90-100 calories), and only had about half...gave the other half to my companions' youngest sister. Her comment on the flavor I chose? "It's a weird flavor, but it's okay, I can eat it." hehehehehe (FYI, I chose Butter Nut and yummy!)

So, now, I am preparing for bed, and taking my supplements, and I thought...I think I need more of my cal-mag-d with the extra workouts, so then I thought I'd take the time to enter all my supplements into the tracker, so I can know what I'm getting with the micronutrients, too. (Many of the foods other members enter don't have any micronutrients listed at all.) Looks like I'll be here a while...I take several individual things, because I find they're more effective than a big multi.

Anyway, this "tiny" gal is signing out. On a bit of an acknowledgement high right now...hope I can sleep!

    You're right...when you have instilled new habits, maintaining is easier. But, most people don't do it this way.

    The "diet" approach, or X-day plan, or diet pills, or whatever that takes you outside "normal" eating patterns, will always rebound on you when the plan is done and you go back to your regular life, not having learned any new skills or habits. So folks think it's harder to maintain. The way I'm looking at it, what I'm doing now IS my "regular life", so there's going to be nothing to "go back to".

    That's one thing I really like about SP...most folks on here are in it for life...for health, to develop those new skills, habits, and patterns.

    WTG Tiny I am just about ready for size 12 myself. Saturday a co-worker noticed my weight loss and then followed it with "Keeping it off is harder than losing it". I don't think keeping it off will be has hard as people keep telling me. By the time I get to my goal weight I will have healthier habits in place to follow thru. emoticon emoticon
