Yesterday, Today, Tomorrow

On Twitter tonight, Fitness RX For Women posted this great post.

I think this is so true and so relevant to what I was thinking this week. I have been weighing myself almost daily and logging the weight into The Daily Plate. They have a little chart so that you can see how the graph goes up and down. I AM down the 6 pounds from my xmas gluttony, but I go up every weekend 2 pounds and go back down during the week.

The graph has input for calories and weight. I can see how my calories from the day(s) before affects my weight today and tomorrow.

I know I have a few excuses for this that I am going to keep under control THIS weekend.  Oh wait, it's the Super Bowl weekend. Crap. I am going to have some major willpower fighting this Sunday for sure.

1. I am not as active on the weekends as I am during the week. My workdays, I walk around for at least 6 hours a night, plus workout. Weekends, I watch about 6 hours a night of movies and don't work out as much. Saturday, I am going to do that 18 mile long run on the schedule to see if that helps counteract my weekend sloth.

2. I eat and drink too much. I know I go all carb crazy - usually my Saturday night Gin & Tonics. Alcohol bloats me and is nothing but bad carbs. And after I have 1 drink, I won't drive. But I also won't workout either.

3. I don't eat as many veggies during the weekend as I do during the week. I will be adding more veggies to my meals this weekend to see if that will help me keep portions and calories under control this weekend.

Do you get all crazy with calories on weekends or do you keep then under control? I do sooo well during the week, but the weekends have no structure at all.


  1. Yes yes yes. I have the exact same problem. I eat great all week and undo it all on the weekend. We are at my in laws this weekend which usually makes it doubly worse, they keep candy out on the table AT ALL TIMES. So I need a weekend gameplan!

    1. I think my game plan of the long run will help me, drinking more water, logging what I eat, and more veggies. I think I would be chewing a lot of gum to keep some of that candy out of my mouth at the inlaws. lol!

Happy Birthday To Me

Happy Birthday to me. You know how I celebrated the start of my birthday on midnight at work? (I actually am not taking my birthday off. Why can't all birthdays be on a weekend day?) Burpees, pushups, squats, crunches. One for every year. So, I did 22 of each. Ok, 24. ;-) Sunday, for the BFs birthday, we had a shot of Wild Turkey. And our birthday shot (which I found out Vista Bar doesn't do free birthday shots - shame on them! Looks like Neurolux is my preferred birthday celebration location because I know they give free birthday shots) made me want to really enjoy another, but I refrained. Actually, I think this weekend, I will be taking in a cocktail or 4 at the  Modern . I also made sure to sign up for lots of restaurants deals for birthday goodies this year because I like being a cheapskate. I like it when places give you a week (or all month) to use the goodies and not just on your birthday day. I don't want to go for a free b-day meal alone on my birt

Quarantines and Earthquakes

Hi. How are you and your loved ones doing? Everyone safe and healthy? I hope everyone is illness free and has plenty of TP. :-) Don't remember where I found this at The Stay at Home order isn't really affecting me too much. We work from home anyways, so its actually making us work more. I enjoy my house and my bed and I even signed up for Amazon Prime so I can watch more then what is on Netflix. We can't go out to eat in restaurants and we can't thrift store shop. I know, I know #FirstWorldProblems But I am thankful that I am in a relationship where I enjoy being around the person I am in a relationship with. From a Buzzfeed post a bit ago I have been ordering a Doordash or 2 a week. Doordash is a good thing and yet a bad thing. I can scroll and scroll and think about food, and even order it. It caters to this Taurus a little too well. I enjoy being at home, I like to eat, and I can make sure I tip the driver and make sure the restaurants can keep the light

New Race Plans

Ugh. Is there anyone that does not have a canceled race yet? I am seriously glad that we are all together in the pain of this. I got word on Thursday that my Race to Robie Creek half marathon is canceled and won't be happening the 3 Saturday in April. I am sad because this is the only race I care about all year. My email about the race But then I got an email for my St. Patty's Day 5K on Saturday the 14th is still on, but without water stops and post-race snacks. My email from Thursday That is totally cool. I never drink water in the middle of 5Ks so its no big deal to me. On Friday night I was prepping for the morning. I decided to confirm on the website the start time. Website Notification Oh, look. Its canceled. Did I get an email about this? It went to my spam folder so it was there and they did let us know. They were gonna still mark the course, so I did appreciate that. I had pulled my green race outfit out of storage and I just purchased a new gre
