What goes up MUST come down



So last weekend I thought I was one of the Hilton sisters parading around Hollywood sipping martinis.  That did me in for last week's weigh-in and I gained 3.4 lbs.  I didn't stress too much, because  1.) it's sort of fun to be a Hilton and 2.) I knew that if I got back on track, focused and was strict, the weight would come off.  And it did! Today I weighed in and I lost 3.8 lbs. Yipppeee! It felt really good to get on that scale and see it move in the right direction.



I haven't blogged in a couple of days because I am going for another goal simultaneously.  I am participating in National Novel Writing Month.  Check out nanowritmo.org.  At the end of the month I will come away with a 50,000 page novel (about the length of THE GREAT GATSBY).  So far, it's been an incredible experience which requires about 2 hours a day to write about 1700 words and do JUST THAT.  No editing and you are not even supposed to use the backspace key.  You are supposed to KEEP GOING.  I am taking a course which guides you through the process and our instructor had a great analogy to keep us going:

If you were training for a marathon, would you put one foot in front of the other and then say "That wasn't good, I think I'll go back and do it again!"

Well, the answer is clearly NO.  This writing exercise enables wanna-be novelists to let go and truly "Just do it".  I highly recommend it!  And if you can't wait 'til next year, April is set to be "National Script Writing Month."  Check it out!

I haven't been journaling my food, I needed a break from all that.  I have been doing quite well though, finding some creative ways to incorporate more veggies.  But here's the exercise I've been doing:

Friday:  I was stuck in the house with the baby who had an ear infection so I made the most of it.  I did yoga on my Wii Fit.  It wasn't a lot but it got me moving and I have increased my balance significantly according to the Wii.

Saturday:  I didn't get to do anything since I had the 2 boys and a soccer game.

Sunday:  Hit the gym and was excited about it.  I biked for 10 minutes, 100 sit-ups on the ball, bicycles (lying on my back), squats, biceps, triceps, leg extensions, lying on back leg extensions, treadmill 10 minutes (11 min miles for 5 minutes, walked 5).

How was your week?
