Well, I totally erased all the good that I did last week in one weekend. I'm up 2.6 lbs. this week. UGH!! This is what happens when people leave a bag of Cool Ranch Doritos at my house & when there is chocolate pie & leftover cupcakes. I will give myself some credit. After Sunday I didn't eat another cupcake or chips or anything bad for me. Partly, because I finished the bag of chips Sunday night & partly because of willpower. Those stupid cupcakes sat on the cake plate on the island staring at me (it may have been worse than the raccoon staring at me). Thankfully, Dean finished them off. My next problem? Book club Saturday. There will be too much good, fattening food. At least it's at noon so I have the rest of the day to burn some calories.
I've done great with my workouts this week though. I always try to find a positive. Monday I was back at Yoglates. It was the first time in 10 days & I was scared. In the past when I've missed a week for vacation or being sick it's been awful the first couple of classes back. In a strange turn of events it wasn't hard at all this time! Now, when I say "wasn't hard" I mean in comparison to going back after time off. The workout was still hard. Dare I say that I may actually be in shape for the first time in my life?? It's taken 38.5 years but better late than never. I ran Tuesday. I tacked on an extra minute. I know that's not much but it's something. I'm still not running 3 miles & I want to get there. I can't increase too much during the week because of this thing called getting to work on time. Yesterday, I went to Yoglates again & I'll be back today. Another great workout. This time when class was over it was 100 degrees in the studio. I try to get there early so I can get my spot in front of the door. There's usually a slight breeze & it's amazing how much it helps. When it's crazy hot like it's been they open the doors a little.
I was having a frustrating day at work the other day & the thought crossed my mind that I wonder if I could quit my job & teach some exercise classes & make a decent salary. I mentioned this to Dean & he gave me that look. The one that says "OMG who are you & what have you done with my wife combined with nobody is quitting any jobs combined with I hope I don't have a heart attack over the shock of that statement.". Maybe one day.
