It’s Sunday isn’t it? That’s right, a Sensation Sunday!
I finally dragged my butt to a meeting. My schedule has been pretty tight the last few weeks and the meeting times weren’t jiving with my schedule. But that’s no excuse. I need to go. I like to go. So I’m making a commitment to go Sunday mornings before I hit the gym. That means getting up a but earlier but it’s worth it. I’m worth it.
I’m also worth my trips to the gym and boy am I LOVING the gym right now. I had a NSV (Non Scale Victory) today on the treadmill. First, I’ve graduated to jogging a bit. I’m not saying I’ll be running any marathons anytime soon but I’ve upped the intensity of my walking workouts and now I add a few minutes of jogging to the routine. It’s tough but I can feel my stamina increasing every time I try it. The first time I tried, I only lasted about 2 minutes. Today I did 2 – 4 minutes stretches. Not too shabby considering 3 months ago I could hardly walk for 5 minutes without wanting to blow my brains out of boredom. What happened in those 3 months? I changed my attitude around. Instead of considering exercise a chore I now realize it’s a my gift to myself and guess what? I’m worth it!
Back to the NSV (although I guess that’s one too!) while on that treadmill I happened to look down at my legs. I was wearing shorts and I noticed something, something quite shocking to me. My upper thighs were jiggling a lot less! I mean they was still jiggle there but behind the jiggle, I can see the definition of muscle. I CAN NOT BE-LIEVE IT there is muscle under there!My workouts are paying off!
All right, that was all the good news but I do have some bad. My eating has been a bit on the over indulgent side. Not out of control just a bit over points on the unhealthy stuff, fried chicken, chocolate chip cookies, chips, leftover Halloween candy. . I think this coupled with my lack of attending meetings is to blame on my small gain this week. What am I saying, of course it is! I updated my weight progress and if you look at this years chart, it’s a bit of incline. That’s a little scary for me especially considering the holidays coming up.
I feel like the eating thing is still a struggle and I’m sure it always will be. There are still times I feel a little out of control but I know what I need to do to and I know I’m worth it. So my question to you is…
Aren’t you worth it too?
Other quick news points I need to tell you…
- I’ve been working my butt of on my new food blog and I may be ready to go live soon. I have 2 new food ideas to post from this weekend but I may save them for the new blog if I can work out the last few bugs this week.
- I’ve posted a few times on my DietDetective blog and forgot to tell you.
- I had some friends over for a playdate/dinner tonight and made them my Roni’s Homemade sauce with Meat. I love cooking for other people. The funny thing is I never realize how “overly healthy” I try to cook until people start asking me questions about my food. Is this turkey sausage? You used pumpkin is this? It just makes me laugh as I assume everyone cooks like me. LOL
- I just want to give a shout out to my Aunt Helen and Uncle Al. Mom said you’ve been reading!
