The Competition

So I thought it was time to update on The Competition. It's not so much a competition but more those times when your friend tells you they are going to start working out and/or dieting and it motivates you to do so.

This thing is a great circle. Bou, VW, Amy, and a few others here and there are all part of this little freak health fest. It's like when one or some of us fall of the wagon, someone will post on how well they did.

VW has been running, Amy is doing Weight Watchers, and Bou is doing online Weight Watchers and working out...and they are all chasing at least two kids!

So, I guess it's time to post my progress. I mentioned last Thursday how bad I had done the past week. I mean bad! I mean not working out, not drinking water, and eating whatever the hell I pleased. Taco Bell missed me!

So, since Friday, I've gone hard core! I went to the grocery store and got lettuce, tomatoes, cucumbers, green onions and made a HUGE salad with bits of sliced turkey and cheese. Aww, so good. And it's so easy...whenever I'm hungry, I just go make a quick bowl and I'm satisfied.

I bought just enough food to get me through the week...stuff that is easy but healthy...since we all know how much I love to cook! I WILL NOT eat out this week. I've got plenty of fruits, veggies and easy foods to have this week.

I've been going to Curves still and added 250 crunches each day. absurd types of crunches. I can smile and my freaking abs hurt! I love it!

So, why the week of health psychoness? I go on vacation Saturday for two weeks!! I am driving to Chicago well I will get to meet some of the Bad Example Family, spend time with my family, and see my sister's graduation. Then I'm flying to Phoenix to spend a week there with my dad, stepmom and both sisters.

Althought being home is the chance to have all those great home cooked meals. And being in Phoenix and going into Mexico, I'll be chowing down on some Mexican food....I will not go overboard!

If I can't go to Curves, I'll go walking. Still continue to cut my portions. I'm bring food/drink with me on my drive to Chicago so I don't have to stop at fast food. I'll still have fun...and I'll feel better when I get home that I didn't gain what I lost.

I will be posting my results for the month on Friday when I have my Measure Day at Curves. I have a feeling this month won't be as good as last month....but a little is better than nothing.

So cheer the ladies on! I have to get to bed so I can get up early and piss off my muscles some more.

Good job jumping back on the fitness train!! I had a horrible weekend of splurging. Let's just say McD's was involved :( I'm jumping back on today though - need to spend at least 2 hours on cardio and crunches to get rid of the thousands of calories I consumed this weekend ;)

When you get to Chicago, I'm going to have to ask to see your abs :-)

Good Luck Harv... the abs are there, I can feel 'em...but they're covered up with a layer of fat. Nothing to see least not yet! ;-)
