The Gym....

Went to the gym today.
I
am
tired

I met the Walkers Leigh and Jen for an hour of intense exercise. I need to lose 40 pounds in 4 days as I am going home for the first time in like 8 years. It was rough going. I did the necessary preparations last night so I'd be ready this morning..got out my gym clothes...found my shoes..worked on the I-Pod for two hours..you know, things you need when at the gym.
We decided to meet a little after 7:30 in the ay-em. Much better then 5am!!! The people at the gym look soooooo normal that time of day. I think it is mostly mom's who get the kiddos off to school and then go and get their workout on. Nobody looked twice at my quilters bottom. It was lovely. I did 2 miles on the treadmill. Alternating between running and walking. Whew!!! Then I went home, got cutie-fied, walked the dog, looked around the house and thought about cleaning up real quick, vetoed that and went to Walker Jen's house for a sew day. At lunch we went out for salad and a rice bowl. Then home and a nap. :) Health wise it was a good day. The only thing wrong with today is that I have some ice cream in the freezer that smirks at me every time I go in there for ice. It's the good kind too. I served it for a church meeting at our house on Sunday and we still have a carton left. I just sat down to eat and needed ice for my glass. I opened the freezer. It looked at me. I looked at it. It whispered my name...."Dddddaaaawwwnnnnnnnnnnnn. You know you want a little taste of me." I said to myself that I am stronger then the ice cream. It smirked at me. It thinks that I will eat it after everyone goes to bed because calories don't count after everyone goes to bed. What to do what to do?? Stay tuned and see...

Will she eat the ice cream folks or will she resist temptation?? Stay tuned for tomorrow's episode called..da-da-da

Don't eat it! Think of how good you will feel tomorrow at the gym if you don't eat it!

I give you permission to eat the ice cream... IF you cover it in salsa! Now let me know how it turns out.

My husband has a theory that the amount of energy required to heat up the ice cream for digestion by the human body exceeds the number calories taken in. (That would mean one would lose weight by eating ice cream in his world.)OK, I'll buy that. Have a safe trip, glad your dad is on the road to recovery.

Fight fight fight! Don't do it!!! I am LOL'ing cause my first job was at Baskin Robbins and I gained 8 pounds in two months -- not that I couldn't have used the weight, being the scrony 16 year old that I was - notice past tense....was......

Nice to meet you!
