Fat Tuesday is here again.
I was dreading the scale today... after a week of not working out and then Thanksgiving on top of that.... I was sure I had gained my 10 pounds back, and then some. I ate almost an entire pumpkin roll all by myself!!! (pumpkin bread filled with a sugary cream cheese filling and rolled in walnuts and topped with powdered sugar, oh man it's good) Plus we had taco night two nights ago and hello...SOMEONE ate 3 tacos!!!! Oh this is not going to be good.... I cautiously turn on the wii and step on.... i muted the volume so that I didn't have to hear the little oompa loompa in my wii grunt at me.... I didn't have any hot coffee in hand, and no other projectiles close by, so I didn't want to hear his remarks this morning. I wait... just like on the Biggest Loser with the scale beeping and numbers flying, to see what the scale registers as my heft today....humm....let it be good....hummm...I can deal with a couple of pounds....hummm....ppppllleeeeaaaasssseeee.......
You have lost 0.2 lbs!!!
Happy dance!!!! woot woot! Ok, so I'm still at 140, but whatever.... I'm stoked that after eating all of that crap this week, I'm not at 150!!! So I sat down here with a celebratory doughnut, and a banana.... I though, I'll eat the banana first, then the doughnut... I took a few bites of banana, and it didn't taste all that good, I guess sitting next to a maple bar, a banana sort of loses it's luster... soo I ate half... and picked up my maple bar.... I took a bite... AND....gross!!!! The doughnut is just gross.... I mean, it tastes like a regular doughnut....but it's too sweet and heavy and greasy and...and...and...I thought of all the time at the gym I'd have to take to work that off... so after one bite... I'm done with that. Yeay me! I guess... hahahahah
So today Evan has gymnastics and I'll be able to go to the gym for 45 minutes while he plays.... I'm thinking elliptical today. After an hour on the seated bike yesterday and three miles on the indoor track, I'm all walked out.... I think the music choice will be..... hummm.... Dean Martin holiday radio on Pandora.... if I can have some fun Christmas tunes, I think I could crank out 45 minutes..... oh wait! Today is Tuesday!!!! I'm going to listen to Glee radio!!! Sweet!!! They have a lot of upbeat songs that will help me through this day... I feel motivated but not overly... hahahah.... Hopefully my new friend Lacey will be there and we can get on the elipticals together! Oh course she's WAY more athletic than I am...but that helps motivate too...I guess...hahahah!! It always helps to have someone next to you going through the same battle you are! hahhaah Lacey, our battle with the elliptical....it's on! hahaha See you there!
As for everyone else... have a great, doughnut free, day! Happy Fat Tuesday!
