Countdown to Conquest

Thursday, January 24, 2013

Today had a difficult start. I had to go for an annual test that all ladies should go for but many do not. After having to take my second dose of pain reliever, I lean toward their train of thought and wonder why on earth... no, I know why.

I resisted both the lure of the bakery (best donuts ever!) and several fast food joints one of which has lovely hot chocolate which pulled me toward the drive thru but I held steady and kept driving north toward the office. Victory for me!

I'm convinced that if I just keep having these tiny victories, I will eventually win the battle. Last night was a little easier to control the portions and hopefully, tonight will be even easier. I still ate on the high side of my calories but that's not what I focused on. When Hungry tried to get me to go for more, I made myself wait and see if I had had enough. I was fine. (Picture me kicking that hairy beast!)

emoticon Cut calories 300/day - within range but not quite -300

emoticon Walk 30 min/day - we walked at the mall; 22 min.

emoticon Cardio 30 min/day - fail. sigh.

My walking buddy does not seem to understand that I have to go and get back within one hour. In order to meet that requirement yesterday, we could only do one lap so my time was under for my walking goal. I'm working on a way to approach her with this issue. Since driving, parking and getting in/out of the mail takes up some of that time, we need to go right away, walk fast (for me) and hurry back. While 22 min is close, I'm not aiming for close, I'm aiming for dead on success.

    Way to kick Hungry's butt... I think he snuck over to my house when he couldn't convince you and definitely convinced me to have another serving (sigh) emoticon

    Nice job - well done. Keep it up!

    Well done on conquering Hungry!

    Maybe just matter-of-factly mention that you're hoping to get there a little earlier, or just start walking quicker and let her keep up. Worst case, yea, you can go alone, but give a few nudges to try and get the timing down better first.
    Good luck!

    Congrats to beating hungry away again! The issue with a less-enthuisiastic walking partner is one that I have too - to the point of just going on my own. Best of luck with it!
