Today

Wednesday, December 09, 2009

It's Tuesday night and, of course, I'm watching Biggest Loser. A few minutes ago, they offered Shay $1000 for every pound that she loses between now and the next season's finale. I said to Kerry, "me, too please". Then I realized... I would work harder if money was at stake. Now I'm wondering "why?". Why do I have to have that kind of motivation to get healthy? Shouldn't my health, physical and emotional, be worth way more than $1000?

Yesterday, I was depressed and fighting my PMS. I lost and ate way too many calories and WAY too many carbs. I didn't drink the water that I promised myself that I would. I came home from work, plunked my ass on the couch and watched tv from 8 until midnight. Bad Penny.
I woke up today feeling gross and fluffy and emotional all over again. But I did things differently... I drank my water, ate my fruit and veggies, ran 4 kms in the frigid cold and (hopefully) stayed within my calories. My only moment of badness was a 65 calorie chocolate cookie. I feel good tonight. Much better than this morning.

SO! How was YOUR Tuesday?

    Oh - I've been on a major sugar binge! And when I told my trainer that this morning she pointed out that it was actually a sugar AND fat binge.

    I would work harder for $1000/pound too! I have 20 pounds I want to loose and $20,000 would go a long way! But I do keep remembering something Jillian said to Shay and that was "make a different choice" - so if I make bad choices one day (such as my sugar binges) - I try to make better choices the next. We're not perfect sadly so we just do the best we can!

    I have the same problem during PMS! I'll have to be careful today because I'm going to lunch with several friends I haven't seen in a long time....they LOVE to eat.....and eat......and eat!!

    My Tuesday was good! Strength/toning and yoga classes and then got on the elliptical for the first time for 40 minutes. Thanks for asking.

    Always learning - never giving up! You are a succes girl, and don't you ever doubt it. I'm glad your Tuesday was a turn-around day for you.

    Nice job rebounding from an off day.

    My Tuesday was good. Got my water. Hit my ranges, even with the brownie. Ran 7.5 miles. Got 8.5 hours sleep. I have lost three pounds since returning from the Thanksgiving break.

    Life is good! Now if they could just finish renovating our bathrooms, it would start to feel like Christmas.
