Taking the Show on the Road

I’m sitting next to my baby who is munching on a Krispy Kreme doughnuts, and I’m not even tempted.  No, it’s not “hot doughnuts now.”  LOL.   I know I’ll probably splurge a few times while I’m on vacation.  If I’m going to suck up some extra calories, I want to eat things that will make me feel warm and fuzzy with each bite.  I’m totally psyched about working out, which will allow those splurges to not show on my hips and thighs.  I’ve already scouted out spin classes at L.A. Fitness.  I found one tomorrow morning, so I’m officially taking this show on the road.  Wish me luck!  This class is 20 minutes longer and certainly not a beginning class.  I hope my booty is ready:)
19 days down.  2 more until it’s a habit.
Much nub and fitness,

Temptation Island

Have you seen that show Temptation Island?  That was theme of the day.  I had to avoid the pitfalls of the yummy doughnuts and gourmet cookies.  For those that don’t know me, I have a huge sweet tooth, so this was huge.  I walked through the door at my mom’s house and was greeted by bacon and potato chips.  I briskly turned on my heels and walked past them.  I am proud.  I avoided all of it!    People keep saying “nothing tastes as good as being lean feels.”  I guess I have to get lean to see if it’s true.  Thanks for all of your help.  I had extra willpower because I didn’t want to admit to all of you that I was eating calorie/fat laden sweets.

I need to make a correction.  I double checked and keep seeing 21 days to create a habit.  So it’s 4 days down, 17 days until it’s a habit:)

Spin Day 2

I discovered the cure for post-spinning pain.  What is it you ask?  Spinning some more!  I went in the lion’s den, aka the YMCA.  I looked straight at the bike seat and hopped on.  Ironically, by the time the class was over, I was a lot less sore than when I arrived.  I learned a new “trick” today, also.  We did hammy, hover, sprint, recover.  I let slip my first expletive in class.  LOL.  2 co-workers even showed up to the class after I had talked to them about my experience.  Who knew I had that effect on people?  Honestly, I love having them there.  They continue to make me even more accountable for going.  All of you reading this are also keeping my feet to the fire, in a nice way. Wish me luck in avoiding the evil doughnuts again at the staff meeting tomorrow morning.
3 days down, 25 to go until it’s a habit.

Don’t Stop ‘Til You Chew Enough

Treadmill…no.  Pool…no.  Tony Horton Ten Minute Workout…yes!  I got up this morning and banged out the full body workout.  That definitely woke me up.   My new eating strategy is to chew my food longer.  I’ve seen 15-20 chews per bite.  I’m now up to 15-22. Not so magically, I’ve gotten full sooner and eating less.  I have no idea when I started eating really fast, especially since I love the taste of food.  I’m excited.  The bonus is that I even passed up on the yummy looking doughnuts at work.  The glazed ones were calling my name, and I said “no!”
Wish me and my butt luck again because I’m going to make it happen in the 6 am spin class tomorrow.  Two days down, and 26 to go.
