Need to get control

This has been my downfall lately. Hubby likes to have dessert at night and one of his favorites is ice cream. Last night it was red velvet ice cream. And it is just like it sounds, red velvet cake in ice cream. I wasn't particularly fond of it but I ate it. A good sized bowl of it. We started this tradition of ice cream before bed a couple of years ago. I was on Weight Watchers at the time and if I had points left over I would have a small scoop of ice cream. I would only have 1 scoop at most and I would put it in a chinese rice bowl so it looked like more then it was. Over time this once in a while treat developed into an almost every night thing. And one scoop in a rice bowl evolved into a regular bowl with 2 or 3 scoops. The bowl got bigger because Hubby shares his ice cream with the dogs, so he needs extra. I do not. And yet I get it. And eat it. Even if I'm not fond of it. Like red velvet ice cream. So I need to change that and I need to do it immediately.

Time for a confession

I've been saying repeatedly that things are going really well lately. And in many respects they are. But there are a few areas where they aren't and I have decided it's time to fess up with myself.

First, I am really having trouble letting go of the bull with my neighbors. We had the mediation in February and I still am not able to let it go. That's insane. Not only is it insane it's not healthy. I can not continue to hold on to this anger towards them. They don't know I still have it and with any luck at all they never will. I can not allow them that kind of control over me. This anger does no good for anyone. So I have got to let it go but I'm really not sure exactly how to do that.

Second, my eating has not been good. I've been working out at Crossfit for 6 weeks now and things are starting to change with my body but I'm not eating well. I eat far too much processed foods - though I don't want to. I eat way too many sweets. I do not e…

The soreness has set in

One of the things I absolutely love about Crossfit is that it's never the same workout twice so you really have no time to get used to it. After almost every workout I have a little bit of soreness. Today I have quite a bit.

The workout on Friday was 20 pull-ups and 20 wall balls. We could pick either 3,4, or 5 rounds. Since everyone was doing 5 I went for 5 too. I wrote all about my thinking here in another post.

Yesterday was not bad, I felt myself getting a little bit sore but nothing serious. Today?? Different story. My back is sore from the ring rows I did instead of pull-ups and my thighs are killing me from the wall balls. Above is a picture of how wall balls are done. It is difficult walking today, especially stairs. I did 5 rounds of 20 each, so that's 100 ring rows and 100 wall balls. No wonder I hurt...
