I listened…

…to what this old body had to say and I took a rest from the exercise.  I relaxed yesterday…had some time with my family and watched the Saints game.  They lost.  It seems every time I really feel like watching them play…they lose.  I have to get disinterested in the Saints again and maybe they will win games.  It would be nice to see them go to the Superbowl in my lifetime.  They need to hurry up because I’m 38 now and still no Superbowl.  It will be my luck they will go to the Superbowl the year I pass away.  🙂  Just like any die-hard Saints fan…my hope is still springing eternal.
I finished the workout that kicked my butt the other day.  I am a determined woman.  I started it from the beginning and did the entire workout with Billy.  I did need the rest because the workout wasn’t hard like it was before.  I ordered another Amped Bar so I am doing the Live workouts until it gets here.  It is a nice change of pace…gotta mix up things so my body doesn’t get used to the workouts.
My mind has been wandering these days…my husband is getting short in Iraq.  Not short in height….I don’t think he could get any shorter (according to my son we are shrubs in a world of mighty Redwoods…he is upset that he picked up the shrub gene)…but short in time.  I am getting all squirelly like I always do.  Broke my no candy streak…ate an entire bag of Mega Peanut M&Ms.

At least there were peanuts inside the damned chocolate.  Sigh.  All day today I was thinking about what in the heck I was doing.  I have been doing so well with my eating and exercise and then I notice the short time and I start with the bad habits again.  I gave myself a swift kick in the pants (and realized that I got rid of all my big sizes…nothing but doll sizes in my closet and I can’t afford to buy more clothes) and picked myself up.  The candy definitely didn’t make me feel any better…but I guess it was needed to get me back on track and back into reality.  I know that I cannot make everything perfect…and I cannot be perfect…so I will just be me.  I guess it is good that I am realizing that life will continue forward and no amount of candy will make a difference (except for my weight) in the world.  I am going back on Induction for a week to get the cravings (and they are bad because of the sugar) out of my system and get back to my healthy diet of protein, fruits, and veggies.  I didn’t have a lick of alcohol so I know I have grown…a year ago I would have been drunk and covered with Peanut M&Ms.  My coping skills are better…
I am a Hell’s Kitchen Junkie.  Hell…I am a Gordon Ramsey Junkie.  I am rooting for Rock.  I like him and I think he will run a kick ass kitchen.  This weekend they ran a marathon of Ramsey’s Kitchen Nightmares on BBC America.  I was in heaven…and now I see they are doing the American version of Kitchen Nightmares.  My Fall schedule is already set…Saints games and Gordon Ramsey.  I won’t know how to act.  🙂
I have to get ready for work tomorrow.  I got a call from my co-worker and she told me that she will not be back to work until she sees an Orthopedic doctor for an injury that she sustained at work.  It will be busy and interesting for sure…
I’ll be back tomorrow with another workout and to keep myself on track with Induction…

    eek!! A whole bag of m&m’s eh? Well, at least it got you motivated again. Hey..just a minor glitch…as you said, no one is perfect….You have to listen to your body. And why is it so easy for me to say that to someone else??? LOL
    Congrats for getting back on track! 🙂

    Thanks Chelle….it is hard sometimes to do that. Congrats to you for getting Taebo. It is hard at first but over time it will get easier. Because of the marital difficulties I had last year with the husband I am a bit nervous now that he is 90 days out. I am not sure how I will react to him. 🙂 Eating M&M’s isn’t the answer though…
