I'm not gonna lie to you, I cheated this weekend. Friday night was girls night and I drank several glasses of wine, making me giggly and thinking my new Harry Potter ring tone was the best ring tone in the universe. (I still think it's pretty awesome now that I'm sober though.) Then on Saturday night, along with busting my ass roller skating, creating a giant purply-red bruise on my knee,, I also ate
two three slices of pizza. Since it was my nieces birthday party, I felt obligated to have a teensy tiny slice of cake too. I'm seriously kicking myself now but really, if I can't cheat once in a while, I'll go crazy. I need cheese. And cake apparently.
My workouts, on the other hand, are something I can be proud of. I've stepped it up this week and did the second week of C25K and it was surprisingly easy! I went from running a minute, walking for a minute and a half to running a minute and a half and walking for two. It doesn't sound like much but when you HATE cardio, it's a small accomplishment.
I'm determined to run my first 5k this spring even if it kills me, which it might, but I'm going for it anyway. Do you need a little motivation? Read Marissa's blog. Her and her husband are so inspiring, her latest post brought me to tears.
Our weekly weight loss contest at work is giving me a little kick in the ass this week. Weighing in on Mondays is tough, especially after the weekend I had. When I weighed myself Friday, I had lost another pound but come yesterday, it was back on. That equals a zero loss for this week and the same tiny girl won for the second week in a row. I'm taking this as a sign I really need to step things up. This means no more cake! I can't afford it.
One thing I keep trying to tell myself is that my pants are looser and I'm feeling better. That's the main reason I'm doing this right? The scale doesn't know that I've added reps to my weight training and that my muffin top is almost gone but I do. With that in the back of my mind, I'm forging ahead and trying not to get down on myself. (That's what she said)
What was your success/downfall this week?
