where to draw the line...

ok... I was very excited when I got on the scale this morning.  It read 170.6

Now, my reward for getting to 170 is to finally watch my Sex and the City DVD (the movie).  I have owned it for weeks and it just sits on top of my cook books waiting to be watched.  BUT, the rule to myself was 170 pounds and you get to watch it!

So, what do you think???  Does 170.6 count?  Or do I have to wait for a number less than 170.5?  Or do I have to wait for 170.0?  OMG, I just want a reward for losing anything in December!  But, I don't wanna be a cheater!!  haha.  Maybe I'm putting too much thought into this.

PS... I was sick last week and didn't work out at all.  I finally got on the treadmill today for 30 minutes and it felt great.  :)

Hope everyone had a Merry Christmas!

**ok, I've thought about it**
Alright, alright... I talked to my boy toy about this dilemma... and I'm not going to watch the DVD until I'm at a 170.0 or less.  That will make me work EXTRA hard this week to get to my freakin' reward!!!!!!

Cheers to possibly meeting my mini-goal!
Cheers to twenty five years!

GOALS: out with the old, in the with new

So, recap of goals for this week...

1. cardio... 18 miles of walking/jogging -- not done.  I did 5.25 miles.
2. weights... 3 days -- not done.  I did two days.
3. 2 days of blogging -- done
4. log food everyday -- not done.  I logged two days.

Ok, so I only met one out of four of my goals.  But, I did get some activity, which I feel is better than none.  I knew I wouldn't get the 18 miles, b/c I looked up a plan for switching from walking to running.  I have decided to follow that plan to get me speeding up.  And, I did go by that plan and it made my treadmill time much more interesting.  

My legs and arms have been sore... from jogging and weights!  I like that feeling.  It reminds me that I've been moving...


1. cardio... walk/job plan three days a week 
2. weights... upper body weights on M, W, F
3. 2 days of blogging
4. log food everyday

Cheers to new goals!
Cheers to twenty five years!

Photo Friday

(photo from trip to Cozumel... a few years ago)

MUST... THINK... OF... THE... BEACH...

ok, so I really need to remember that long pants and sweaters aren't to be worn all year... there will come a time ... much sooner than I'd like to realize that I will be in a bathing suit.  I don't want to be the chubby girl in the suit this summer...

therefore, two cardio sessions for me this weekend... and tomorrow is upper body weights as well.

cheers to bathing suits!
cheers to twenty five years!

I'm not in the mood...

no, no, no... not that, you perverts.  ;)  I'm not in the mood for a workout. 

I'm feeling like a slacker.  :(
I know what my goals are this week... I'm just not motivated.
I have lots of excuses.. that are all lame.  I hate excuses.

I feel like one of my little students at school ... when I ask, "WHY did you do that?"
and they just look at me blankly and shrug their shoulders.  
My goals are staring me in the face saying, "WHY aren't you doing anything?"
and I just nicely shrug my shoulders... I don't know why.

I think it's important that I post on the days that I feel like crap too... I can't stand always feeling the need to appear positive or perfect.  (yeah right!)

I know I should be on the treadmill right now... but I think I'm just going to go clean my kitchen and get back to it tomorrow.

side note:  I did actually do cardio and weights yesterday... but that's it for the week, so far.

cheers to venting!
cheers to twenty five years!
