I'm ready for the week.

House is clean. Laundry is washed. Shopping is done. A plan has been made. I'm ready for the week. I have a workout schedule. I have my WW diary ready to fill in and I've got all the points for the typical things I eat written down. I feel confident and strong. I'm approaching this as a way to take care of myself. I'm not going to focus on weight loss aspect as that tends to really bring me down. I'm going to eat good food and keep track of what I eat because that's good for me and I really want to be the best I can be.

So, starting tomorrow I do 45 minutes of cardio (probably running) and 30 minutes of weights Mon, Wed, and Fri mornings. I will swim for 45 minutes on Tues and Thurs mornings. Mon evening is WW. Tues and Thurs evening is trail running. Wed and Fri evenings will be 20 minutes of yoga/pilates. Sunday morning is trail running and Sunday afternoon will be 45 minutes of yoga. Saturday is completely open and I will do whatever I feel like. Next Saturday it will probably be getting my garden together and planted.

I'm looking forward to this. In many ways I'm going back to where I started. This is how it all began 8 years ago now. I kept busy exercising and focused on doing the best I could. That's what I plan on doing. I'm working on rewards but that is proving hard. I'm not sure what I want to work towards. My big reward (if I ever manage to get this weight off) is my new bike. I'm not going to buy it until then because I want a tri bike and that will justify it - at least in my mind. So I'm working on the rewards. Please feel free to make suggestions.

Okay, that's it. I'm going to fold my laundry, get my bag packed for morning and get ready to watch Desperate Housewives. That and Grey's Anatomy better not be repeats, I'm so freaking sick of repeats!!!!!!

Looks like a solid plan. That's what I try to do with eating too - eat healthy and for fuel. Treats every now and then. I probably should journal my intake, but I don't. I've tried a couple of times, do it for one or two days, then it goes by the wayside.

Good luck - it'll be a great week for you!

Faced my fears

 So I mentioned that I had gotten some of the cups I ordered. They are Stanley dupes and have gold plating under the powder coating, so when...
