It's going to be a quiet day

On my way into work I noticed way less people on the bus, many coffee places closed, dark office buildings. It looks like it's going to be a quiet day.

Well after the points debacle of Saturday, I did keep it together on Sunday. Now I just need to keep it together for the rest of the week. I'm just going to take it day by day. I'm going to do the Biggest Loser Cardio (Low impact) today. We're supposed to get snow and there's still ice out there so walking outside might not be that well advised.

Yesterday I did about 35min of the Core Secrets workout, I didn't finish but went as far as I could. It's not that I couldn't physically do it, I was limited space wise and just got annoyed. I will do some sort of workout every night this week, I really want to see a loss at the scale on Saturday. It will have been two weeks since weighing in.

Do I ever have to be diligent starting now, all the brochures with Christmas goodies are very very tempting. That really made me realize how easy it is to fall into old patterns.

Watched The Biggest Loser on the weekend, ran out and bought the sugar free jello they were pitching. 11 of those suckers add up to one serving on low fat ice cream. Of course I have low fat ice cream in the fridge but now I will have it in a tea cup to get the appropriate serving size.
The new girl irritates me a bit with all her complaining but it did highlight a good point. It's really easy to stick to certain behaviours if they work for you in the short term.

Training partner is working evenings and has made plans with a friend on Wednesday. She leaves on Dec. 3. I'm hoping she has a relaxing week in Hawaii before I get there. She's a bit stressed lately. I really don't know if we'll doing much together in Hawaii, I think she wants to sit on the beach for a week and since I'm only there for a week and having had a melanoma scare, I'm not all that into sitting on the beach for a week. I need to do some shopping.

Sonya-I fly in two days before the marathon and come back 5 days after. To even get on a plane a few days after and have to sit for 7hrs would be horrible on the poor muscles.

I hope everyone has a great day and I'm really inspired by many people's renewed enthusiasm.

Did I say stay diligent? Just got roped into a Tim Horton's Run...egad. Oh well, I can be diligent for the rest of the day. (Did do a pretty speedy walk there and back)

To a loss this week!!!!

You totally deserve some winding down time after the event! Glad to hear that you'll have some.

Tim Horton's. mmmmm. What's your downfall there? For me, the timbits get me everytime. And if I've being VERY bad, I give into hot chocolate too.

My downfall at Tim's is the Cafe Mocha and these new mini danish things...evil.

Hi! I have been reading your blog with interest, so thought I should de-lurk and say hello.

I am travelling to Honolulu at the time of the Marthon also with the Arthritis Society Joints in Motion Team. I am doing a hike though, not the marathon. I am also a long time Weight Watcher.

So much of what you have to say rings true with me.

Well, as you said, it's down to days now, not months. Keep on Keepin' on!
