Mark Twain on Challenge

Two days in and going strong!

Hello there fearless readers- here is my post from the flip side... I am two days into my smackdown and things are going well. I worked out last night with my Biggest Loser Wii game. I am going to tell you right now, that thing kicked my butt. Wow. I mean really. I must be the most out of shape lug on the planet because a video game kicked my arse. Sigh. All day long today I remembered how it kicked me cause my quads screamed everytime I bent down. Which I had to often today trust me. I have eaten cleaner in the last two days than I have in months. (that is kinda sad- just saying) I hope that I can keep it up. Temptation is REALLY hard for me to ignore. I have instantaneous gratification disorder when it comes to sweets. Then, just to add insult- Girl Scout cookie ordering season is here. Thin Mints are my *favorite* and I have to say no. Really, no. Now, Julia will tell me that I can have some- I will just have to deduct the "points". What she fails to understand is that I eat them a sleeve at a time. That is like a hundred points I am sure. I only get like 31 a day, so I would have to fast for like a week after that. We all know better than that- so I will have to abstain from the Girl Scout cookies for this year until my will power improves. *arg!*
Tonight for dinner we had a yummy meatloaf with green beans and mashed potatoes. The whole thing was only 8 points! It was good. (and healthy) I will post the recipies of what we are making if anyone wants to know. :)
I am getting ready to workout again tonight. It is like 3 degrees outside with a windchill and snow. That makes working out outside not an option. As I get older my tolerance for cold goes down... especially in my toes and fingertips. I am looking forward to either the thaw, or some significant snow so I can bust out the snowshoes. Ok, so that is it. I am exercising, eating not junk food, drinking tons of water and trying to be good. I am going to try to figure out how to get a picture on here so I can get a "before" picture up. More soon!
