And I'm Off...
Friday, March 04, 2011
...both off my cardio game and off for another adventure. Had to cut my gym time short again and only got in 6 minutes on the elliptical before some quick ST. My friend will be here in 30 minutes to pick me up and we'll be headed up to Cincinnati.
The plan for today:
3+ hours driving to Cinci/my mom's house.
We'll grab some Tim Horton's on the way - and, yes, I will either have a donut or a blueberry muffin...probably.
Concert tonight - Reba with George Strait and LeeAnn Womack at the US Bank Arena
May hit up some of the bars downtown as tonight is Cinci's Bockfest...hope we make it up there in time to see the goat! *lol*
Likely something healthier like Subway for dinner.
Packing an apple, a pear, and some protein bars for just in case...
Either a lot of walking and/or dancing tonight, or at least 2 miles on mom's treadmill before bed.
The plan for tomorrow:
Not quite sure.
Mom, AM and I will be hitting the town. Possible choices: Newport Aquarium, Cinci Museum Center, Cinci Zoo, or shopping at the Jeffersonville Outlets
Then lunch at one of the places I've Googled in and around the Cinci area.
Then home again, home again, jiggity-jigg.
The plan for Sunday:
4.5 miles...I need to make sure I can do it before I drive 16 hours for nothing. *sigh* I'm actually quite worried because my hip has been bothering me the past few days. I walked a mile and a half yesterday and felt it the rest of the day...and it was a really slow 1 1/2 miles...
Dear Weight Loss Gods,
Please help me stay on track this weekend.
Don't let me throw everything away just because the scale insists that I'm gaining weight.
Remind me that gains throughout the week are normal, and this one is likely caused by a seriously long and difficult ST session I still haven't quite healed from yet.
Remind me to drink my water.
Please let me come home happy and healthy.
And, for the sake of all that is holy, let me AT LEAST see 324 on the scale Sunday...though 323 is my ultimate goal for this week.
Remind me that no matter what happens, I'm doing good stuffs for my body and progressing in ways that can't yet be measured.
Remind me that it's a long journey to a new life.
And remind me that I've been living my new life with confidence, pride, and only moments of self-doubt now and again.
Remind me that I'm only getting better and that the scale can't define me or control me...all that is up to me!
Oh, and could you remind me, please, to stay out of my own way this weekend and just have some darn fun?! All work and no play and all that...Mmmkay?
