Workout Nazi…. February 20, 2010

He’s baaaaaaack….

I woke up today to a fresh cup of steaming coffee, a good night’s rest behind me.  Looking forward to the day?  Nope.  Workout Nazi had already informed me that we had a two hour workout planned for this morning.

I got my breakfast in me…whole wheat bagel with egg on it.  I’m not a huge breakfast eater, but today I wish I’d had more.  Those approximately 250 calories didn’t last very long. 

We started off with–once again–the devious Coach Troy and his Ultimate Conditioning dvd.  One hour of cycle spinning, interspersed with squats, plyometrics, and pain, and I wished we were done.  Alas, it was not to be.

Another hour of torture by the Workout Nazi Jeff’s exercise plan involved running intervals combined with upper body circuits.  I can handle 8 minute runs, I told myself.  Okaaayyyy….eight minutes run, five minutes of weights, eight minutes of running, etc.  Over and over again….

Two hours.  Sweat.  Pain.  Barked orders (his, not mine!) and I’m done.  My legs and arms are wet noodles.  But I have to admit, I feel like I accomplished something.  Thanks to Workout Nazi, I lost 2 1/2 pounds last week for my Biggest Loser competition at school.  He’s on a roll to make me lose at least another pound this week.  I may just do it….but don’t tell him I said so.

 

More Random Stuff… February 5, 2010

Okay, I really wanna punch Puxatawney Phil in his fat little furry face, and say “Enough, already!”  Please.   Estimated 8 more inches today. 

There is not enough wine in the world to compensate when your husband is home with you on a snowy weekend.  Visions of snuggles, romantic dinners, candlelight, etc…..out the window.  Mr. Type A was into laundry, dishes, softball drills, working out like a banshee brandishing a whip.  His new name is “Cleaning Nazi”.  Because he makes US do it. 

As per the banshee-induced workouts….it was my own damn fault.  Last time I try to do the right thing and buy that boy some new cycling dvds so he doesn’t get “bored” with his spinning routine.    He also doesn’t like working out alone.  READ:  I really wanna vomit on this bicycle, but I know who’ll have to clean it up!  (See Cleaning Nazi comment above)

Biggest Loser started this week at my school.  I’m in charge.  I do the weigh ins.  Talk about temptation.  It’s not the chocolate, wine, or martinis I’m talking, either.  It’s the temptation that I’m the ONLY one who knows ten people’s weights.  And some of them aren’t all that pretty.  Just saying.  Treat me NICE….

Speaking of Biggest Loser….my weight for the weigh in yesterday was the best of the bunch!!!  I was happy.  BUT…it’s kinda scary weighing in your clothes, after school, after eating and drinking all day.  The number was a bit higher than what I’m used to seeing in the morning.  But I guess it’s all relative.  I will be weighing every time under those circumstances, so better get used to it!

I may just head to that tropical island yet…..I’m not giving up.  Hopefully the Biggest Loser competition will tickle my competitive bone into finally getting rid of these last few pounds.  Fingers crossed.  Now, I’ve got to go get ready to work out.  “Workout Nazi” is on his way home, and he’s already called to say he wants me to do the cycling workout with him when he arrives.  Better go grab a barf bag…..
