How many more gadgets can I add???

Friday, December 24, 2010

It's been a rough week--- Spark-wise. I have been eating uncontrollably and not exercising. I don't even want to jump on the scale because I know it will be depressing. I guess it is the stress of the holidays if I were to make excuses. But I really have nothing to be stressed about. How much sense does that make???

Mentally I was thinking about waiting until after Christmas and the New Year to start eating right and exercising again... starting fresh in January. But today, my day off from work, I am realizing it needs to start now. FOUR short weeks away is my half marathon and with taking the week off from running I SURELY am not ready. I cannot take any more time off. I am going to stay meticulously on track until the end of the year... get all of the excess water weight gain out of my body and weigh in on Jan 1st to start fresh. Hopefully it won't be too depressing.

I had a healthy breakfast and am off to the gym. I wanted to run outside, but it is raining. Hopefully it will quit by tomorrow because I have a Garmin 305 under the tree that I plan on testing out tomorrow.

I am charging the BodyBugg back up and going to use that again for awhile. That always seems to motivate me.

I just have to laugh at myself sometimes.... what a sight I am going to make with my Body Bugg on one upper arm, MP3 on the other, big 'ol honking Garmin 305 on one wrist, Body Bugg display on the other, and my new Jeff Galloway vibrating Run/Walk/Run timer clipped to my waist band. What a DORK!!!! LOL! What else can I add??? Some type of hydration pack clipped around the waist and something to wear on my back???

I am one of those that always seem to jump at new ideas.... Who says once you try it you have to stick with it forever??? Nothing wrong with trying something, realize it's not for you and give it up. Or take a break from it for awhile and turn back to it later. I have always looked at this as a fault of mine, but it's really not. Just my personality I guess.

    Oh, I am totally with you on wanting every gadget under the sun! And then every accessory for every gadget . . .

    It's a hard time of year. I'm not even dealing with parties, and it's still a hard time of the year! Not getting quite as much exercise, which is quickly showing up in my clothes, not making bad food choices -- but not the best either.

    Like you, it's really tempting to wait for the new year, but that's too far away! So for right now, I'm planning to try to be really "good" for a couple of days and then ease a bit, then right back to "good" . . . so I don't go into that deprivation frame of mind.

    Well, that's the plan, anyway.

    You go Girl! I am kind of new posting on Spark People but I love to read what other post. You will love your Garmin 305. I live in snow / ice / wind Iowa and have been unable to exercise outside for several weeks or more, but I hit the gym and my own work outs at home. Just have to work on my bad eating habits!! Best of Luck and stay on course -- you'll get there.
