The Salad Case: Picture this!

A day late, me? NEVER! Of course, one might say my motto is "better late than never." I say it's a good motto, so here ya go:

Monday's Workout: 30 min Short Flow for Athletes yoga  + 20 min interval run

So guess what, I got my run on Saturday AND this AM!!! Go me... go me (said in the oh-so-cool hip-hop tone)!!!

I recentlly read this article Olivia Munn's Hilarious Take on Ex-boyfriends and Fat Jeans and it made think of question my own attitudes towards my "fat jeans." Who cares if they haven't been washed in ages, right? Well, I guess Ms. Munn does so she relies on the scale to tell her how she's doing.

I have some marker jeans that tell me whether or not I'm on the right path. I usually don't wear them because when I'm good, they're too loose on me (silent yay) so I guess they don't get washed too much. She may have a point, darn it!

I do weight myself every morning, though. I try not to let the number get to me if it's not on "my side" that morning - but it is a good reminder. For example, it's showing me at 2+ of my "target" weight this week but all my clothes are fitting well.

I blame Halloween and the Salted Caramel Mocha's that I've enjoyed since I met them in SF. Checking in ever morning helps me step back and see if I need to lay off those treats a little bit!

How about you, do you rely on your scale and/or fat jeans to let you know how you're doing?

Oh yea, picture this: 2 salad cases splattered all over the floor. Maybe not such a nice picture, but that is the life when I share it with this guy:

Puppy Abacus! Don't let him fool ya - he's one mean counter surfer who apparently doesn't discriminate against spinach, broccoli and carrots. Luckily he went for the two plastic cases and left the two glass ones alone.

I didn't get to take a snapshot, but here's what was in the mix this week:

  • handfuls of spinach
  • roasted broccoli and carrots
  • 1/4 cup crispy garbanzo beans
Not my most savory, but it'll do this week :) Have a good one bloggies!!
