I'm A Creature...

...Of Bad Habits.

I'm a good girl, but I sure have lots of bad habits and three of them hit me in the face this weekend. If two glasses of wine with dinner was good on Friday, then an entire bottle was welcome on Christmas day, and then a couple spills before bed on Sunday night to help me get to sleep in a bed that wasn't mine (BTW...this NEVER works out well) finished me off.

A couple pieces of pizza with those glasses of wine on Friday led to 5 pounds of the unhealthiest potato dish known to man on Saturday, which led to an unconscionable amount of bean dishes on Sunday. burp. Which led to no gym time yesterday when I COULD go. I wondered who Mai wrote this note for that's been floating around the family room for a week, but yesterday, for sure, I knew it was mine:
The worst for me is when I slack off on working out. Three days of no workouts and I'm sure you know how I felt when I jumped on the treadmill to find the belt not willing to spin. Grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr.
But I prevailed.  I don't care what the husband says about pushing random buttons and uplugging and replugging over and over again... SOMETIMES. IT. WORKS!
Hooray! I spun out 3 miles and the last one was an 8:57m/m. HECK YA! I was so salty and sweaty that while I did my stretches, my dog basically licked my face off. Who needs dermabrasion with help like this??

Ha Ha! That note is hilarious!! Your past few days sound just like mine, no workout for 3 days and way too much food. That's alright though, you have plenty of workouts ahead of you the next 6 months! And you are under 9 minute miles already, awesome!!

Ok, Luke just came over and sat next to me on the couch and read the fart monster note and started going HA HA HA HA really lound and said, that's funny!! (that's exactly something he would write!)

That's great! I worked out one day last week and then today and man was I having a rough time... I just can't say no to all the food that has been around me constantly... Seriously, packin an extra 4 lbs is no joke... Better on Monday, right? :)

LMAO at that note. My boys would say something like that to me.

Glad you managed to get the treadmill to give you a run!

Three days off? But you are back with a vengeance, and the 'rest' will pay off. Sounds like you had a good time with delicious food and drink. You will think fondly of these times when you are doing your bricks!

Love the dog comment! I've had that happen only I don't like my dog as much and did not enjoy it at all. She even tries to lick my legs when I get back from a run. Yuck! It's nice to have a little break and then get right back at it.

Jen, my dog stuck her tongue all the way up my nostril yesterday. NOW...THAT'S where I draw the line. EWWWWWW.

Way to get back on the that treadmill after some holiday treats!!! Thats the hardest part and you did it!

Hilarious. We should post some of those signs around our house!! (not referring to me, of course) ha, ha!! Happy New Year, Julie. !

Julie said...

Of course that note would ONLY be for the men of the house ;-)

Happy New Year to you, too, Julie!!

I don't have kids but sometimes think I do just so they can do silly things like write fart monster notes :)
