Workout: upper body work (Purely token. Seriously. A very sad effort.)
Too much fun on a Wednesday night = a very pathetic workout on Thursday night. And when I say "too much fun", I"m not talking about crawling into bed at 2 a.m. I'm talking about getting to bed at 10:30 on a school night followed by a very busy day at work. That's how you know you're not 25 any more.
I went to anti-gravity yoga last night with a good friend and we had a lot of fun. I was a spaz, as expected, but enjoyed it immensely. And afterwards, we had wine. Yoga and wine - what a great combination.
Time spent with this great friend always reminds me to enjoy the fun things in my life. Fun can be found anywhere. I spend too much fun moving from chore to chore and I need to focus more on the fun.
For instance, let me focus on the chocolates I am currently eating! Ess and Bro-in-law brought me chocolates from Vancouver to say thanks for doggie sitting Golden Retriever Barbie. Deeeeeee-lish! From ChocolaTas.
And so I wonder: is it realistic to expect to lose weight this time of year? With a much more active social calendar ahead in the two weeks, should I aim for status quo? Should I hope to break even and maintain my current weight?
Today, there were butter cookies on the reception desk at work. I am now eating chocolate. I had wine last night. And tomorrow is a staff lunch. The coffee vendor at work has left all sorts of holiday flavored hot chocolate for the staff to enjoy (hello After Eight hot chocolate!!!). What should my expectations be for the next two weeks? Should I modify them to include some treats, while trying not to gain any weight?
Hmmmm.......thinking, thinking, thinking......
First, I will adjust my expectations. Break-even is the new goal for weight loss.
Second, starting next week, I'm moving my workouts to early mornings. I can't seem to do a strong workout at the end of the day when it's dark and cold. All I want to do is go home, get cozy and get to bed early. Therefore, I'm going to work with that pattern.
What are you doing this time of year to stay healthy, strong, fit and on track?
