Random Wednesday: Cruise Time, Snow, and the Scale

Happy Random Wednesday Bleeps!

I have exciting news. The cruise has finally been scheduled!  HOLLA!  I will be going to the Bahamas the week before my birthday...what I wouldn't give for that to be tomorrow.  Needless to say, I have had Cruise on my brain for 24 hours.

You may have noticed that I haven't done a recap on The Biggest Loser finale yet. Well there are a couple of reasons. First, I'm just behind.  Second, I want to think about how to approach it. I think I am just going to recap and then I will have a reaction follow up post later.

So Saturday I went up to spend the day with Cousin Kim and Miss Cassidy. I put on my new size 6 teeny tiny jeans. I wanted to break them in. I did bring a pair of sweatpants in case I hit a moment when I couldn't button up again after using the ladies room (a little terrified of that happening). I did change, but not until it was time to go and I put them on for a warmth factor. Pretty excited. I heart my little jeans.

I get very frustrated when I see my rolls of fat through my gym. It makes me feel like I have so far to go, but then I put on my little jeans and remember that I am getting smaller and I'm good.

The morning that I went in to Philly I decided to bust out the scale and just see how I was doing. I really don't remember the last time I weighed myself.   I kept stepping on it and it kept saying "Err"...grrr...it better just need new batteries and not a reflection on my weight.

 *****

I have declared Tuesdays my "To Do List Tuesdays". I need to make sure that I get at least 3 things knocked off of my To Do List. I just have to make sure that I don't fall in the trap of "Oh well I'll do that on Tuesday" and just pile it all on there.

I did NOT want to go to the gym tonight. With the impending storm coming I just wanted to run to the grocery store and run home.  But, I will be working from home for at least tomorrow if not Friday also. We all know how I have been fairing with my workouts (although I'm fairly certain I will get a shovel workout tomorrow). And so it was very important for me to get to the gym tonight. It wasn't a long workout, but it was a workout. Something is better than nothing. :-)

I even made sure to walk at lunch. Ms. Tracey and I got in a mile and a half at lunch. We got a little distracted by a monster sale at Bath & Body Works...

*****

Sunday I caved. I ran into Girl Scouts and I bought some cookies. I got the Cranberry Citrus shortbreads. I was intrigued and I knew they had a better chance of survival if there was no chocolate involved.


*****

So when I said that I wanted to go to the Grocery Store tonight I really wanted to go stock up on chocolate....I did not stop. I knew I would just eat it all tomorrow.  So we're calling it a win...until I am trying to walk to the store in 2 feet of snow to get myself a snickers bar.
