Come visit me at Girly Bitz. It's my other interweb hangout.

Eats for Thursday 11/25

Well, today is officially Thanksgiving.
Of course, I am spending Thanksgiving in the crisis unit.
Yay! (not so much)

MB and I will be having our turkey dinner tomorrow since we are both off. Sort of. He has to go in at 7pm to cover for someone. Boo.

My family had their usual Thanksgiving feast, but since I was working, I couldn't make the two hour commute to partake. Boo again.

Oh well. It's probably for the best. I know our meal tomorrow won't be full of butter and cream and salt and all that good stuff like my Mom's dinner. It'll be the healthier thing in the long run.

I do love her Banana Cream Pie, though.

Eats for Wednesday 11/24

I didn't use up nearly all of my points today. I had packed a nice filling salad along with some fruit and a yogurt for my dinner. However, I didn't have a chance to eat anything but the salad because I had a call to go out on at work.
Fat Club fail.
I did manage to get my fat ass into the spare room to do Burn it Up. Of course, my back was already tight and all those squats just made it worse. I'm pretty much crooked whenever I try and stand up after sitting for any length of time. If I stand, I'm fine. I may have to remain standing until I go see the chiropractor again.

Weigh in

It's that time again.
I lost .2 of the 1.2 pounds I had gained last week. I can live with that.

My goals for the week were to stay on track with my meals, run at least twice and do Burn it Up at least twice.

I did run twice. Once with the pup and once solo. They weren't great runs though and I know I can do better. I also did Burn it Up once.

I'm not sure where my motivation went over the past two weeks. I think it's been a combination of stress, a super long visit from TOM and the fact that MB is out of commission as my running partner. Plus, the cold weather makes me want to hibernate.

I will really need to fight these obstacles in order to get back on track and keep losing. I'm still feeling pretty good about my progress overall. In fact, I just bought some new (to me) jeans that are a size 12! Woohoo! You can check them out here.

I will get back on track this week. I will be challenged by Thanksgiving, but I will still get back on track. I want this. I want to be looking really good for my birthday this year. That gives me 35 days. Hopefully, I'll be able to wear my size 10 jeans when I go out and booze it up this year. I think I can do it.

I hope everyone has a Happy Thanksgiving! That is, if you are celebrating. If you aren't, then I hope you have a Happy Thursday!

I'll be stopping by to see how everyone is doing.

Eats for Saturday 11/20

I tried to run solo today since MB is out of commission and running with the pup didn't really work out. It was a beautiful day. A little windy, but really pretty warm for this time of year. I started out okay. My goal was to try and run 3 5 minute segments and then more if I was able. I ended up doing 4 minutes, walking, running 4 minutes, walking then running 2 minutes and walking the rest of the way home. Overall, I ran 10 minutes out of my 40 minute walk.
Not bad, but not the best.
I really feel like I'm falling behind without MB there to motivate me. Plus, it's kinda boring without a partner to run with.
There is no one to laugh at me when I start to hyperventilate; tell me how sexy I am as I spit like a cowboy; smack my butt when I actually run the whole segment without issues. I miss these things.
I miss running with MB.
I'm not going to give up though. I can't wait 3 weeks while MB gets better. I need to maintain my motivation somehow.
This means I'll be hitting the pavement on my own again. Hopefully I can be my own motivator. It might be difficult to smack my own butt though.
