Hope everyone had a good Christmas.
I exceeded my goal of running 20 minutes by adding another 3 minutes on to that on the 23rd, but unfortunately have not been back to the gym since. For some reason my mind and body won't work together on this. I'm too busy reading a new book I got from my brother.
Anyways, i've also been eating too many home-cooked meals and flying out to fast food restaurants when home-cooking is not available. Yes, you could say i've fallen off the wagon.
My New Year's resolution: To keep in touch more closely with family and friends. Of course, I also have the tried and apparently not true resolution to stick with the gym and the diet.
So let's see what January 1st brings...
- Friday Dec 23, 2005
Monday: cheese wrap, coffee and another cheese wrap for dinner. Exercise - 1 hour aquasize.
Tuesday: cheese wrap, coffee, battered fish with fries, coffee. Exercise - 2hr walk with dog through snow and ice and tiny little hills.
Wednesday: battered fish leftovers, coffee, cheese wrap. Exercise - 1.5hr gym (mostly treadmill - ran 16 minutes)
Thursday: ham and cheese sandwich, coffee, chicken burger, popcorn. Exercise - 2.5hr volleyball.
Friday: buffet with salad, chicken fingers, mashed potatoes and peas, coffee. Dinner is unsure. I asked dinner what it thought about tonight, but it didn't have an agreeable answer for me. If it would have said pizza it may have had a fighting chance....
Lots of exercise this week. 7 hours total so far!! 1.5hr gym time is scheduled for tonight, and a goal of running for 20 minutes. I will succeed!

Where did I leave off? Well, i'll just start from Monday.
Monday: rice & cheese wrap for lunch and dinner, 1.5 hours aquasize
Tuesday: rice & cheese wrap for lunch and dinner, 11 minutes elliptical
Wednesday: rice & cheese wrap for lunch and a chicken burger with fries for dinner, 1 hour gym and at least an hour of mall-walking
Thursday: rice & cheese wrap for lunch and steak stew with a mean veggie dip and raw veggies, 1.5 hours volleyball
Friday: cheese wrap for lunch and ceasar salad with a slice of the boys' pizza. I skipped gym today because...well, just because. Of course, the night is not yet over...
Tomorrow: eggs and toast for breakfast, cheese wrap for lunch and grandma's cooking for dinner, 1.5 hours gym
Placed a bet with my boyfriend to see who could outrun who - but I have to work myself up to it on the treadmill first. I'm close to half an hour of running but I know he can do that too, so I have to go longer than that before I take him up on his bet.

I've been sick so have not been eating well because I tend to say goodbye to watching myself when i'm not feeling well. It's a pessimistic attitude that I cultivated long ago and just don't have the strength to give up right now. Notice how it's so much harder to give up bad habits than it is good ones? Anyhow, I took my weight down and will update the next time I weigh.
