Crap-a-palooza 2008

Crap-a-palooza 2008


Honestly, did I think I could eat almost an entire bag of Halloween candy, not exercise a lick, and only gain the measly 0.2 lb that I gained last weigh in? I think I am a little too pragmatic to believe that, but I was still a little shocked to see that I had gained another 2.6 lbs.

I must admit that I was seriously tempted to record 134.2 so that I could hang on to the 20 pound mark (read "seriously tempted" as I did it, then felt bad about being a big, fat liar and went back and edited it)

What stopped me was the thought that I could post that I weigh 125 and my graph would look fantastic, but I would look and feel like a 134.8 pounder. Is this about looking good on the internet or feeling good in real life? I say it is about feeling good in the skin I have whether it be at 150, 135,or 130.

So there it is.


I went to the massage therapist. This is getting seriously expensive. I am not entirely convinced that the knee feels any better, so I am not going to go next week.

I am going to try to run tomorrow, but I think it will be like last week. At least I will get out there a little. The coach says to keep trying but not to run through the pain. The more inflamed it gets the longer it will take to heal.

I am struggling with my doctor to get a referral to a Sports Medicine Specialist. I have gotten three referrals from my doctor's office. So far I have been referred to a doctor that only sees appointments Monday-Thursday 8am-12pm (nice schedule doc!) , a Gastroenterologist (???) ,and then I was referred to the same M-TH 8-12 guy a second time! Arghhh!

7 Goals in 7 Weeks!

(Finally! As Ms. Shelley has pointed out, I only have 6 weeks to Xmas, so I will make mine until New Years )

1. Exercise 5 days a week. (At least 30 minutes of aerobic exercise 5 times a week and strength training 2 times a week)

2. Drink at least 80 oz. of water a day.

3. Tell my husband that I love him and give him a kiss everyday (Horrifyingly embarrassing that I have to list this as a goal but I get pretty distracted (read: self-involved) with my schedule

4. Play time with the cats every weekend.

5. At least two servings of fresh vegetables per day.

6. NO MORE CANDY!! (It is like crack! A couple of fun size Snickers and I am ready to sell my brother for chocolate)

7. Only one night review for AP Biology per week, so that I am home before 9 pm at least one night per week.
