Good News and Bad News

Good News: I had a fan-freakin-tastic run yesterday on the treadmill. I left work an hour later than planned yesterday and could have very easily skipped it BUT I didn't! I so rock!! I had a nice easy stride and my breathing was so in the zone. Woohoo! I still have a touch of the runners high - can you tell??

More Good News: So many people hated that circuit workout from my weight training class that only 6 people showed up today, including me. This made the workout way better because there was more room in between people, so it didn't feel so sweaty gross. Yay!!

EVEN More Good News: I got off my ass and went back to WW meetings today. Getting there is the first step. I feel ready to commit. The meeting was really good to boot! We had the nice lady.

Bad News: You knew it was coming!! Did you guys know that regardless of HOW MANY activity points you earn in a day, they suggest that you eat NO MORE than 4???? I had NO idea!!!!! That could explain my stall!! Just goes to show, even when you think you know it all, sometimes you don't!

Was going to do my 5.5k walk with the pup today - Lord knows it is nice enough out, but I wore the wrong socks to weight training class today and now I have a huge gargantuan blister on the side of my heal. I don't want to wreck anything for my running, so.....

Oh, ya - did you guys know that I have been working out with weights for an entire year now? Isn't that amazing? Over 12 months. My bones are gonna be great!!

Well, bloggers, I am away till Tuesday - I am taking daughter to New York City to celebrate her 16th birthday. We will be shopping (yuk) and seeing Wicked. I'm quite excited. And happy that I am OFFICIALLY back on WW so that I will have some reason to control myself while I'm away. My girlfriend and I told each other our weights today at the meeting so that we will have more accountability next Thursday.

Have a healthy day!


  1. Great job on the run! Enjoy your trip to New York!!

  2. I am almost convinced to joing WWs. I have been doing so terrible with my food. The only thing stopping me is the knowledge that I have joined 3 or 4 times in the last 5 years and have never stuck with it longer than 2 months. Hmmmmmm

  3. Lots of good news!! I'm really proud of you!!

    And the bad news isn't so bad. At least your learned something and can correct it.

    Have fun in NYC!!

  4. I find myself getting bored and stressed out on my treadmill runs. What's your secret?

  5. Hey, I'm just going to focus on the good news for you! Yippppee!
