I'm a workout machine!

First things first, weighed in on Friday and was down .6 of a lb. So still downward movement but my body is very reluctant to let this weight go. As long as it keeps going down, that's all that matters and if it takes a while, it takes a while.

I had a great weekend!! My major victory for the weekend is that I worked out everyday! Friday I hit the gym for 30 minutes, Saturday Stephen and I walked about 4 miles, and Sunday we hit the gym for an hour. I was so excited to come to work today and put an exercise sticker for every day on my calendar!!

We stayed home from work on Friday due to an impending snow/ice storm that ended up being just rain. So the weather forecasters really missed that one! We went and saw "Vantage Point." I thought it was a really good movie, Stephen wasn't so impressed with it. We also did a lot of shopping this weekend and I got a new shirt and skirt for work at Ann Taylor Loft. But, seriously, my spending habits need to change! I've read that you only have so much willpower and if you're trying to control both your eating and your spending, one of them usually gets shortchanged and you either eat well but spend too much or spend well but eat too much. Either way, I've bought a lot of new clothes lately and I'm putting myself on a strict budget until my ski more new clothes! It's really gotten out of hand the last few weeks.

It was a good weekend though. Stephen and I were active every single day and I made pretty good food choices. Saturday night we did end up in a bar watching Oklahoma State beat Kansas (the #5 team in the country) so I had a couple of drinks and we shared pizza and chips but over the last week that's the only time we've splurged calorie-wise so I'm totally okay with it. I've had a craving for pizza over the last few weeks anyways. No big deal, only over my calorie allowance by 300 for the day and since we got in some great exercise this weekend, I'm definitely not sweating it.

Alright, well I need to get going on my project this morning since I have another project now too. Have a great Monday everyone!!

You totally followed the 80/20 or the 90/10 rule!! So I'm glad you got to enjoy some of your craving!!

Sara said...

Oh yeah amazing job on the exercise front!!!

Jen said...

Woohooo!!! You did awesome on the exercise front!!!!

I agree with Sara, you are eating good 80 or 90 % of the time so enjoy your splurges!!!

I, too, have the issues with eating/spending...I definitely need to find a happy medium between the two!

I'm another one w/ the issues too. I LOVE BOTH too much lol :)

Thankfully I've managed to gain control on them these past few years.
