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
