Not Too Shabby…. January 8, 2010

     Soooooo……how did the first week of 2010 go for you?  We’re one week in, and I have to say I did better than I WAS doing at the end of 2009.  I’ve gotten in three workouts (will be four today since I’m OFF from school!), so that’s progress.  I need to do some running around for the girls tomorrow, but there’s hope for another one squeezed in tomorrow afternoon.

     Nutritionally, my appetite has been off this week…..way off.  Totally unusual for me, the girl who can eat through good moods or bad.  I really haven’t felt like eating much of anything.  Don’t know what’s up with that, but I know I’m not sick, cuz it didn’t put a dent in my total vino consumption.  I’ve nibbled cheese and olives, pita chips and stuff like that, but sitting down to a plate of food?  I sit and it just looks unappetizing.  Oh well, better enjoy it while I can.

     Lots of illnesses are floating around my school at the moment, so my next greatest hope is staying well so that I CAN continue as I started off 2010.  There’s nothing more sucky than getting in a good routine of working out, cutting back on food, then coming down with something that knocks you for a loop for a week or more.  Looking back over my 2009 posts, that happened a couple of times to me, and it took me awhile to get back on track.  So, fingers crossed to ward off evil germs.

     All in all, not too shabby of a start to the new year.  I’m not weighing….just sayin’….I hate those numbers.  Here’s hoping I can gauge my success on looser pants in the coming week.  How has YOUR year started off?


Start a New Year as You Mean to Go ON! January 1, 2010

    This past week I was bad.  Really bad.  We vacationed in Nags Head, NC for several days while the hubby went swan, goose, and duck hunting…..and I ate.  And drank.  And shopped.  And ate some more.  And drank.  And drank.  And drank….you get the picture.

    Now I have to pay the piper.  I will not get on the scale, because I don’t want my self worth to be measured by some stupid number that pops up and crushes my ego.  Who weighs themselves after the week I’ve enjoyed?  Only a sado-masochist would.  I will not even post how many glasses of wine or raspberry cosmos I consumed.   And they were DARN good.

    Suffice it to say that I indulged a bit too much.  But I had fun.   And isn’t that what life is all about?  Finding a balance between having fun (within limits) and a healthful lifestyle.  I know I am not able to eat/drink like this all the time.  But I will not regret a great week, with great friends, at a great place.

   Today we begin a new year….2010.  I reflected on this past year.  What I did well, what I did….not so well.  And the thing I see is that I really didn’t eat or drink horribly ALL the time, but I really could have worked out a bit more by the end of the year.  I DID kind of let my workouts slide due to the job (an excuse).  So today, I pulled out the workout wear, slipped in a power yoga dvd, and got my groove on. 

    Tonight’s dinner is chicken breasts, onions, garlic, herbs, carrots, peppers, and mushrooms, sealed in aluminum foil and baked.  We’ll have a little rice with it, and yeah, even a glass of vino.  But yoga in the morning, and a healthy dinner at night?  Yeah, I can live with that.  Start your year off right, and continue as you mean to go on.  That’s my new mantra.
