I Might Turn Into A Fit Person Yet

I'm having a bad day.

A few days every month I just want to barricade myself in my bedroom and growl at anyone who dares to enter. Except Sugarbaby. She's welcome anytime. Actually anyone without testicles is welcome. There should be a Beware of PMS Dog sign on the door.

I love my bedroom. My king size bed, my laptop, a big thick stack of magazines, and the new lamp I put in a few months ago. It's a happy happy place and as long as I stay in here no one gets hurt.

But really, I don't want to be all negative today. I want to focus on the positives. Like the fact that I feel better than I have in a really really long time, not counting the attitude. I'm going to chalk this up to all the steps I've taken to improve my health. The C25K program is going great. I started it on a Wednesday and since I wasn't sure I could handle it, I modified the first week. So this week I am doing the actual Week 1 schedule. It feels great and I can do it! My super sweet new running shoes that were a gift from my step-dad have helped the leg pain so much. I can't thank him enough. Besides when someone drops a load of cash on something for you, you are much more inclined to use it.

So yesterday's walk/jog went well. I love that it breaks up the monotony of the three mile walks I was doing. And that is one more modification I'm doing to the C25K. It says to only do it for 20-30 minutes, but I'm just keeping with the same distance I was going anyways and its taking me anywhere from 40-45 minutes depending on how many distractions I have. I always see people I know, I have to stop and do something for Sugarbaby, or I really really have to pee. I've been drinking more water than I ever have in my life and I know that is making a big difference.

As far as weight loss, I weighed myself at the beginning of the Shred and then I weighed myself last week. I'm only down 5 pounds but I'm going to just say that its because I've gained some muscle. I can really tell a difference in my legs and rear end. Now if only my arms and belly would get with the program.

See! I managed to turn this post into something positive, telling you all about how great I am feeling physically and that has made me feel a lot better about my day.

But I'm still not talking to my husband.


  1. Awesome! You are an inspiration!

  2. That's so great!! Good for you - for the workout and the not talking to your husband part! :)

  3. Good for you! Keep it up. (I should listen to my own preaching.) I've lost 15 pounds, but it would be a lot more if I would exercise regularly and drink water instead of sugar-free pop.

  4. Good job on the working out! Way to keep with it!


Now play nice and for every comment you leave, I'll buy you a pony.
