**Days 305 & 306**

The majority of the Halloween candy went to work with my husband this morning, but there is still a little in the house, and I haven't touched one piece!  Actually, the cravings aren't even there anymore.  I feel good that I was able to resist having any because it's a huge accomplishment for me!

I didn't workout yesterday because I was dealing with cramps thanks to my bitchy monthly visitor.  Yes, I could have worked out anyway - I mean, it's not like I was doubled over in pain for anything, but I just didn't want to move, so I didn't.  However, tonight I did 30 min. walk/run.  Food-wise, I'm staying on track.   As always, I need to work on getting more water in.

I'm thinking about joining a gym - just to have a little variety.  It would be nice to mix-up my workouts by being able to use the treadmill one day, the elliptical another, the recumbent bike on yet another day.  And I would, also, take advantage of the weight machines to start working on toning my head-to-toe flabbiness!  There's a gym not too far from my house that's $10/month, and I can, certainly, swing that, so I'm, seriously, considering it.  Probably the only thing holding my back is that I hate working out in front of people - especially men - but I need to just suck it up, and not worry about what people think of me!  Anyway, if I join my goal will be to get to the gym, at least, three days a week.

I signed up for another 5k - the Give then Gobble 5k Run.  It's Saturday, Nov. 19th, and I'll be doing it with my mom and my aunt.  I'm really looking forward to it - we're going to have a great time!  I'm disappointed that I didn't do a 5k in October.  I had planned on doing one, but our October was crazy busy, and there just wasn't an ideal day to do it.  Anyway, I'll be doing the November race, and I, also, have one planned for Dec. 18 - the Reindeer Run 5k.  So, I'm getting back to it!!

Try to ignore the new ugly ass colors on my blog!  I tried to change things up and get a new template and a new background, and couldn't figure it out.  It's just not my thing!  So, I got frustrated, and ended up with the current look.  It's not good I know, but I'm too tired to care! :-\


  1. Kudos to you for not touching the candy,expecially with your monthly friend! For me that's the hardest time to deal with temptations. As for your fear of working out in public, girl trust me once you are a few minutes into your workout you will forget all about it. My sis and I were the same way and now I could careless.& Woohoo for signing up for upcoming 5ks that's awesome!

  2. 10 bucks a month??? Wow that is cheap! I say join - I always loved the variety of the gym. Who cares about the men - you are there for you and they are there for them. Put your headphones on and do your thing and don't worry about other people!

  3. You ladies are so right!! Who cares about the other people in the gym - I will just forget about them, and focus on what I need to do! Thanks for the encouragement!!

  4. $10. a month!!! Holy cats!!!!!!! Jump on that baby!! When I first started at the gym, I went to the back treadmill and stayed there. NOW, I dont really care who sees me!! If theyre so into watching me, then they have a way to much time on their hands!! While theyre standing around gawking, Im working to build muscle etc!! (and I really dont think they actually watch us, its in our heads!)

  5. For $10 a month I think it's a no brainer! I also hated working out in front of people but I realised over time that people really don't give a monkeys about other people at the gym and they are all there to concentrate on themselves.

    Well done for avoiding the sweets!!
