I am kind of bummed out! I damaged my polar today! I'm kind of surprised that this hurt it actually. I was running on the treadmill and I accidentally whacked my wrist on the arm of the treadmill. Now I have this little section of broken pixels? I guess that is how I'd describe it. SO not cool. I'm going to have to save up for a new one. It still works, thankfully, but I'm worried that if I do it again the results could be disastrous! Complete suck city. I won't be able to get a new one for some time - I hope it holds out! I guess in a way it's good - I really wanted one with GPS, so now I have a reason to upgrade. Too bad I can't afford to!
I feel pretty guilty today - I ate like total crap. Well, that's not ENTIRELY true. I ate great all day - and then hubby got home and I ate KFC. It would not have been so bad - but I ate entirely too much kfc - then I had some cookies. It always seems like my eating starts to slip towards the end of the month - I think it has everything to do with the fact that our cupboards are starting to get bare so it's harder to come up with healthy meals. I know, I could have and definitely SHOULD have spent the 10 bucks that we used at KFC to get some chicken breast and I could have made a healthy meal - but truth be told, I'm sick of cooking. I have to plan EVERYONE's meal EVERY day. I never get any input. Here is my daily conversation with Peter. "What do you want for dinner tonight babe?" Peter's response "whatever, I don't care.". AAAGGGHHHHH - I hate that conversation. One day he is going to give me an idea and I'm going to faint. HAHA Oh well - today is over, tomorrow is another day. Isn't that a Dr. Seuss saying? "Today was good, today was fun -tomorrow is another one." I think that will be my motto when I screw off. Maybe I just needed a good goof off. I feel like my resolve has strengthened now so maybe it was a good thing after all!!
My workout kicked hiney tonight!! I can't believe I'm almost done with the C25k! How exciting is THAT??!! I can't believe In another week I will have been running for 3 months! YIPPEE! I found myself thinking ahead today and for once I was not thinking about how much weight I had to lose or anything at all about weight. I was thinking about how excited I was that I will FINALLY be able to run in the turkey trot on Thanksgiving. HAHA For some reason, I have wanted to run in that race for over 10 years. Ever since I heard about it really - it just sounds like fun! I FINALLY am going to get to do it! I don't want to sound cliche or lame, but it's like a dream come true! A silly dream, yes - but a dream nonetheless! HAHA Yeah yeah - I'm a goon. Now you know where my son gets it!
Some awesome news! I'm still in first place in my gym's weight loss competition!! (1st place in my gym - like 500th nationally) I really want to win - 1st place gets 3 free months gym membership! We really could use that break!! I am almost a full percent above the next guy - but they have not weighed in for a month. Who knows though - there are DOZENS of people who have not weighed in since the first weigh in - maybe they will weigh in on the last day and have lost 20% or some crazy thing! I'm down almost 5%. Truth be told - I think I'm down more than that. The last time I weighed in, I felt like I was retaining water. I'm looking forward to my last weigh in! Cross your fingers for me!!
Well, time for a shower and some rest!! My wrists are still really hurting so I'm going to take a week off of weight training. I think it's probably for the best.
