I want to apologize to you all for being M.I.A. this past week. Snow White picked up a nasty stomach virus, my Great Uncle Paul passed away (he was in a class all by himself:) ), and I feel like I've been running a day late and a dollar short since last Monday. WHEW!
The weekend certainly helped make up for the chaos of last week. Friday night, Cool Breeze and I went out to dinner with Mom x 2 and her hubby, and another awesome friend and her hubby. The restaurant of choice? 3 Monkeys! Was it a coincidence that all THREE of our men were celebrating birthdays? I think not. Heehee! We went to a local joint after leaving the restaurant, but that freak-fest requires its own post...later in the week!
Now, back to our coverage of the Blogger Butt Smackdown. Are you still with me? Am I still with me? I have neglected my exercise routine to the point of embarrassment. I have not stepped foot into the gym for two weeks.....and it shows. Since I do not own a set of scales, I have no idea where my weight is.....BUT, if I gauge it strictly by the way my clothes feel, I'd guess that I have undone all of my previous progress:( DARN!
This week, I am RECOMMITTING to exercising a minimum of three times per week. Hold. Me. Accountable. If I don't do it...FUSS AT ME!! I'm not as hard on myself as I should be, and I WILL regret it when the weather turns warm.
I have done pretty well with the healthy food aspect of this diet. I've had a few cookies, and some pudding, but most days I have no trouble sticking to the good stuff:) I believe this is probably the reason why I don't already weigh more than Cool Breeze....I don't have much of a sweet tooth, and I LIKE healthy foods....always have.
Bottom line (no pun intended! Well, maybe!) is that I HAVE TO EXERCISE OR I WILL GAIN WEIGHT. PERIOD. I keep hoping that my pre-pubescent metabolism will return from a thirty-year hiatus, but it doesn't look promising. I'll just have to take matters into my own hands, and fight my fat the good, old-fashioned way...in the gym:/
