The Gift that Keeps On Giving...

My husband gave me a lovely "gift" two weeks ago.  It is this wonderful cold that I've had for the last little while. You would think that since it was over two weeks ago that I got sick that I would be better by now.  Sadly, this cold is like the Energizer Bunny.  It just keeps going...and going...and going...  It's driving me nuts!  I've had enough, and even though I am still not really well enough to workout I will be running tonight.

I know what you are going to ask me next.  "How did you fare over Thanksgiving weekend?  Were you able to keep the calories in check?"


Dear readers, I survived Thanksgiving Day okay.  I would give myself a B-.  Not great, but not flunking either.  The flunking would come later.  As in Friday, Saturday, and Sunday...  Oh yes, I ate a great deal of tasty food on those days.  I didn't count the calories.  I don't even want to know.  All I know is that I finished Sunday with a whopping SIX sugar cookies in my belly.  I gave myself the worst sugar headache in the world.  Served me right!! is clear that I have fallen off the wagon.

....Yeah....not a very encouraging two weeks.  I don't know why I eat so poorly when I can't workout.  If I am running and exercising, I eat well.  Once I stop, I pig out.  That is TERRIBLE logic!

So, I am REALLY hoping for a change this week.  I'll be in Milwaukee this week for work seeing people I haven't seen for a few months, and I want to look physically different.  I need to work hard this week to undo the last two weeks' damage!  I'm in control of this, so I need to stop sabotaging myself.  It doesn't make me feel good (mentally or physically) to eat like I have been.  Time to get serious.  Will you keep me in check?  I need some tough love!


  1. I'm sure you can get back on track!
    Have a great week!

  2. My thanksgiving was good. I do not feel guilty for going over the serving sizes and indulging because I worked out every day this weekend. In fact, I burned 700+ calories at the gym Thanksgiving morning!

  3. "It came back and ran me over" LMBO!!!! I've got your back .. and I've definitely had days/weeks/months like that myself!

    Pick yourself up, dust of the dirt, mud, and whatever else, and get your Franny movin!!! No more excuses!

  4. Becky, Those sayings! LOL! Today starts a new week. Hope it is a great one for you. Besides - it's a marathon, not a sprint, Right?!!

  5. I do the same thing. I haven't exercised in a week and I haven't counted a calorie in a week either! I don't know why I do that. You would think if I was slipping on one thing, I would work better at the other, but its so not the case.
    Hope your week goes well!
