I'm a weenie....

I have tickets to a stampede party this afternoon and I'm not going. Officially it is because daughter wants to go to the Club with her friends, and I need to drive her, but the reality of it is that I can't face beef on a bun and free booze. I just don't feel strong enough to make the right choices.

Last night I went walking with my walking buddies. We walked for 1:45 and did 9.38k. Our pace was slower than race day to be sure, but we walked up on the hill, so there were a lot of hills. My garmin said that I burned over 800 calories.

Guess what came in the mail last night??? That's right - our pre-order of Stargate Atlantis Season 4. I almost cancelled on walking so I could watch it. BUT, I didn't. I did come home and watch one episode before bed though. I just love that show. I still to order the new Stargate SG1 movie, the latest season of The Closer....hmm, there was another show....oh, the latest Grey's for daughter. Sheesh. I'd better get a job to pay for all this - HAHA

Today I had my weight training class. That sneaky lady put an extra rep in for us to do today. Holy crap - was it hard. My heart felt like it was going to jump right out of my chest. Kinda nice to have my exercising out of the way for the day. I also did 20 minutes on the bike. Fun times.

Well, bloggers, that's about all I have for now. Have a healthy day!

PS: I think I see a double shot on ice in my future!! I can't stop thinking about them!!! Help - I need an intervention!!!


  1. Good job for avoiding the situation where you know you would be tempted. Most of the time, I would recommend just trying to do your best, and enjoy life, but sometimes, when your trying so hard to get back on track, its best to just avoid it!

    Great job on the walk too!

  2. Wow! Great job on the walk!

    I had to start taking a convulted twisting path to get to work that avoids all the Starbucks. That place is so addicting!

  3. What a smart move not going to the stampede party if you're afraid of not making the right choices. Way to go!!

    And the awesome exercise. WOW!!

    I'm a Stargate fan too and the Closer, back next Monday (yea), and Grey's. Have you ever watched "Criminal Minds" on Wednesdays? I think that one is also great.

  4. You're not a weenie! Would a "weenie" walk her tail off and burn 800 calories? I think not... would a "weenie" get her rump kicked at her training session? I doubt it...
