How's it going????
It's day two of our little mini Christmas smack down!!
I've completed two days of 60 minutes of cardio coupled with 1 hour of mat work..PDS III - to be exact.
Yesterday I ate REALLY well...very clean - and woke up to a little early gift of returning to my latest all time low weight of 124.
Glad to see that little number back!
I have to fess up though... I didn't eat as well today! shitballs.
Could have been due to the following...
I spent part of the day baking Banana Nut and Zucchini bread to give out to friends ...all from scratch..and I don't mind telling you I have MAD skills when it comes to baking.
I love to bake. I love to cook, in general... sadly... I also love to eat the things I bake and cook.
I made it through all the zucchini bread without a problem...didn't even lick the spoon.
But there was a break between baking sessions (had to get some work done) and that put me in the heart of the afternoon when I started on the four loaves of Banana Nut bread.
I made the amateurish mistake of not eating much lunch...thus creating a hunger that called out to me.
Right about the time the bell rang with the new batch of hot, yummy, from scratch bread...
and who among us can resist the lure of the siren call of freshly baked breads...?
Well, sorry to report...I ate a small piece of the banana nut bread, too!
Well, sorry to report...I ate a small piece of the zucchini bread.
I rationalized it by telling myself that it was the right thing to do...to check that I didn't use salt instead of sugar, or that they were poisonous - you know important things to know before you give out treats...they were damn good- that's what they were. damn good.
all in all - the rest of the day was perfect...
salmon, veggies, water, workout...
just a small slip up on the "bread for lunch" matter.
BUT I AM BACK ON IT!!! - I will clean it up even more for the next three days for a strong finish in the challenge!!!
Whew.. I feel better. Like I just got out of confession.
and No, I'm not Catholic.
I'm actually Episcopalian ... if religions were soft drinks it would be kind of like Catholic Light.
I'll say 3 "Hail Tracies" and be back on track!
ok...so- back down to 124...I'll let you know if it stays there tomorrow...and with only a small slip up...it just might, who knows? Might not- it's a new weight and it seems to be shy about sticking around. It kind of pops up and then goes a way.
Also... I went to the Apple Store and had an appointment with the Genius Bar...I'm gonna try the video thingy again!!!!
I would have tried it today, but I was having a bad hair day.
and since it feels like I'm meeting my Internet lover for the first time... well, I want to look my best!!!!!!
Here are my noble Pre-Christmas challenge buddies!!!
Thanks for jumping in with me - I'll be PERFECT tomorrow..so hang with me!
SUSAN B(she's on it! - called me the "Mighty Thass Eliminator"! )
JENNIFER( she did day to perfection!)
LYNDA (she checked in - and rocked it today!)
MAKIA (she knocked out day 1!)
JUDE ( did a Zumba marathon for charity! double great!)
SUMMER (already did 5 days - she's going 7 more - awesome!!)
PAOLA (who worked out today with Tracy for 2 hours..I'm jealous!)
GRUBBY1986 (love that user name!)
How did you guys do on day 1 and today????????
I'm giving myself a 10 for yesterday...and a 7.5 for today....
I'm planning on three 10's in a row!!!
Inspire me ladies..and gentlemen! Keep me honest... I'm guessing the shame spiral I'm in will eliminate me slipping any more - because I was very used to NOT having anything to fess up to during boot camp...
So bring on AT LEAST three solid days - I'm on it.
WE GOT THIS!!!!
"All I want for Christmas is my size 2 jeans. My Size 2 jeans. My size 2 jeans.
... Gee , If I could only have my size 2 jeans... then I would wish you Merry Christmas."
I gotta say...I'm not even sure I could ever wear size 2 jeans...that was only to make the song work.
And, let's be honest about it..if I could wear size 2 jeans..I wouldn't wish you a Merry Christmas..
I'd wish you a Merry Thass-less!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I worship all of you for jumping in ...and for the rest of you cheering on the group!
Good luck tonight, rock out your workout tomorrow... and KEEP IT CLEAN!!!
CANCUN COUNTDOWN FOR ME!!!!
PS- I got some jeans that I ordered off the Internet - and they are too small...but I decided to keep them...you know...just in case I de-Thass any further. :)
