Getting my run on.

Week 2 Check-in

Week 2.

Saturday morning I weighed in at 160.6.  Sunday and today I also weighed in at 160.6.  My scale seems to like 160.6 and 161.2.  I’ve seen a lot of those two numbers lately.  What I haven’t seen much of?  159.anything.  Gah.  I had one day in the 150′s and then went back up to 160.6.  Whatever 160′s.  I hate you and never want to see you again.  You’re ruining my life!  (*cue slamming door*)

OK, fine.  I’ll stop being a petulant teenager.  I worked out the required minimum of 3 times last week.  I had my eating in check 95% of the week.  I biked and ellipticaled on Tuesday.  I was going to bike on the trainer again on Thursday but my nether regions were a bit sore from Tuesday so I hopped off and just ellipticaled again.  Turns out when you ignore the bike for two months you lose the ability to sit on it for more than 30 minutes without pain.  Huh.  Who knew!  I’ll get back on it this Tuesday again so I can build up that bike stamina once more.  Saturday I shredded it with Jillian.  She kicked my ass.  Push-ups?  Suck.  Shoulder presses?  Yuck.  Jumping jacks?  Ick.  But, I did  it.  James joined me too.  Now that is cute – little three year old jumping jacks.  Sunday I woke up stiff and sore.  I’m still a bit sore today but not too bad.  I hope that my Saturday morning routine while Kris is at work will continue to be” eat breakfast, play with kids, put baby down for nap, shred, shower, baby wake up from nap, resume rest of day” for a while now.  It worked pretty well.

And now let’s talk Halloween for a bit.  Candy.  Oh, candy.  We have three full buckets of candy at home plus at least four bags of unopened candy too.  I could return the unopened bags but well, no.  So, I need to have a plan.  We have enough candy to last us months and months but if I’m not careful it won’t see Thanksgiving.  Yikes.  So, my plan is this – one piece of any candy I want a day.  I’m not a saint.  I’m going to eat it.  But I don’t have to go crazy either.  So, one piece – savor it – and then plan my craving for the next day.  Will it be a Reese’s PB Cup?  A Snickers fun size?  How about a mini Twix?  100 Grand?  Yum. The rule with the kids is they get one piece a day after dinner and only if they eat all their dinner.  I think that’s a good rule to employ for myself too.

Anyway, Pam and Mark – how did your week go?

And everybody – what is your plan with the Halloween candy?

    I started on Monday. So far, I’ve lifted weights twice this week and run once. One more of each to go before next Monday. I’m still kind of sore from the Monster Dash, so I think I’m gonna give myself a couple days off and do those workouts this weekend.

    Haven’t gotten on the scale yet, so I don’t know how close I am to getting back to 190. I’ll probably weigh in tomorrow morning just to get some idea of where I’m at.

    As for Halloween candy, I brought mine to work. So far so good as far as not going nuts snacking on it. Unfortunately, I bought a bag of Doritos last night and wasn’t as good with those. :-(
