Still hanging in there

Between the gym and our local Dillon Park walking trail, I have been pretty busy trying to get fit.  I took a 12.8 mile virtual bike ride at Anytime Fitness and then hit the weights and completed the workout with some great stretches.  I have a sweaty picture to prove how hard I worked out too.

Tonight I completed a 4.05mi power walk in 1:00:05 with a pace of 14.49mins/mile.  My goal is walking a 15 or less mins/mile for my half marathon in May.  I just have to add the distance now.  I have to admit, I’m pooped!!!  Came home to nibble on some Weight Watcher cheese and Weight Watcher yogurt and a big bowl of black eyed peas and green beans.  Yummy yum yum! I’m definately going to enjoy my Skinny Cow tonight!

My other half his off to his third Thursday meal and shooting at the Indigo Club.  It is a man thing.  I’m sure he is enjoying himself just as much as me though.  I just know

It’ll all be worth it

I love my gym

It was a magical night last evening at Dillon Park.  I was eager to head to the walking trail after my meeting at the church.  It was me and another solo runner under the moon.  The moon lit up the area with very little help from the park’s nite lights.  I didn’t give walking in the dark any negative thoughts.  I have had too happy of a feeling since I found out I wasn’t doing laps, but rather miles at a time.  I was pumped as my stride grew faster and faster to the country music blasting through my headphones.  What a great feeling to be accomplishing something after all.

One hard to explain issue that I seem to coming up against is my craving for Skinny Cow ice-cream treats.  What is a gir to do?  All I want in the evenings is my Skinny Cow.  How long can I go before this bad habit affects my weight loss or nutrition goals? YIKES!! I better be a little more self concious about getting more veggies and less ice-cream in me.  All in all, I still don’t go over my Points-Plus limits.  I just need more balance in the points I eat.

Bill purchased two new pair of jeans yesterday and it was very noticeable how good he is looking.  He came to my work and took me out for dinner and I immediately saw I trimmed up specimen of a hunky husband walk in.  I in turn pulled some jeans out of my closet this morning and who would have ever guessed, they fit.  It had been awhile since I purchased them and haven’t been able to zip them up, but this morning they went right up and are fitting very comfortable.  Some day I will be in some skinny jeans and

Not alot of excitment going on today.  I did happen to notice that my pants are extra bagging  and I keep having to pull them up.  Could this mean a shopping trip soon?

Bill and I are headed to Anytime Fitness for a workout this evening, followed by some taped new season premier shows and of course our Skinny Cow ice cream sandwhiches.  I always try and save an extra 8 points for two a night.
