I have, for all intents and purposes, been on a B&H break lately. I've been trying not to be stupid with my food but there's been Thanksgiving and pie and birthday cake and that cobbler at lunch with my mom and there wasn't gym at all last week or.. well.. the beginning of this week. We had a major project launch and I just lost my gym time. But today? There's good news and better news.
Good news: I went to the gym. I did it. I contemplated laying in bed and just lolling like I did yesterday but instead I got up and went. I wanted to run for an hour in the cute new running pants my mommy got me but I had a really early dinner (ok, a late lunch) yesterday and I just didn't have the oompf for it this morning so instead I ran for 35 and then ran/walked for another 5 and clocked 2.77 in 40 minutes. Not stellar, I know, but I was really strolling that last five minutes so I'm not kicking myself. When I made the command decision to cut the run short I also decided to do a bit of weights. Not much, just some good lat and pec exercises because I love the iso-lateral high pulldown machine and I wanted to fit it in. That's always nice. Doing weights reminds me that this isn't a calorie-burn contest I'm doing here. It's a viable life plan that includes improving my body and making my machine better.. not just losing weight. And with that?
Better news: I'm .2 pounds from where I left off. That? Fucking fantastic. Most of my eating today is going to involve dense heavy food so I'm expecting that to go up tomorrow but I'm ok with that. I got lots of water in on the drive in and I'm going to eat breakfast on my normal healthy schedule. I packed lunch for today and tomorrow (there's half a plan for some of my co-workers to take me out for a late birthday lunch but I think an emergency conference call is going to squash that) and dinner will be healthy tonight and I'm on my own for dinner Thursday so I'm thinking of getting a salmon fillet and doing a fish thing.
Anyway. Not as far along as I wanted to be, for sure, but happy enough with the minimal backslide that I'm not kicking myself or hating myself. And determined to get three good on-wagon weeks in before Christmas rolls by and I drag my toes off the back of the wagon and pick the flowers for a bit.
I'm having a blast with the wishlist thing and happily playing elf when I can. And thanks to rahalia_cat I have happy bouncy music. That being said, I'm firing up iTunes and putting together a good holiday playlist that won't require that I listen to "I Saw Mommy Kissing Santa Clause" or that fucking song about the shoes. You know the one I'm talking about. So. Favorite holiday songs? I mean specific versions or just general ones you think people forget.
Also? Thank you everyone for such lovely birthday wishes. I was telling ipso__facto yesterday at lunch (at which I received a really big Jack. WHEE!) that there was something really great about a birthday during which you could just hit refresh every half hour or so and a new wonderful person was wishing you well. I am lucky beyond measure and I am thankful for each and every one of you.
