I’ve created a monster

  1. +1 health kick – the gift that keeps on giving. Mel and I have been progressively more health conscious, with her doing yoga and me hitting the gym multiple times a week (minus a break at Christmas, when we both had head colds). I’ve lost about 15 pounds since last year πŸ™‚

    Diet is really important, as I’m sure you’ve noticed. We’ve decided to eat less meat this year, kind of taking vegetarianism on a day-by-day basis (some days we are, some days we aren’t). We both avoided putting on weight during the holiday season, mostly because we just avoided eating all the cookies, cakes, and treats that seem to be everywhere.

    You’ll hopefully find that the cravings go away after a while. Mel and I stopped eating at McDonald’s over 2 years ago, and while I had a fry craving or two for little bit, it definitely passed. Today, I doubt I could choke down a whole McDonald’s meal. Even the rich food that I had last night (duck and goat cheese risotto, mmm) was a bit too much for me, since I’m more used to salads, chicken, and the like.

    Keep up the good work! The competition aspect definitely helps – I know I’m far more motivated to go the gym when I see Mel doing yoga. Show him who’s boss πŸ˜‰

  2. Over the holidays, I stuffed my face with stinky cheese, many cookies, as much pie and christmas cake as I could lay my hands on. Christmas is ALL about the food (especially because I couldn’t make it about the booze).

    I have broken a sweat three times in the last six weeks.

    I had a Jr Bacon Cheeseburger with fries for lunch yesterday, and I intend to do something similar today.

    Sorry if I’m a bad influence. πŸ˜€

  3. that’s happening here too, only i’ve always been a gym rat and R is just starting back to it.

    Question about the blender – how noisy is it? i just got a new one last fall and I can wake up the neighbors with it! SO loud. and what’s with the scary looking cartoon chick on the oster site?

  4. Chris: meat is murder. tasty, tasty murder.

    Sue: enjoy it now – I’ll laugh when you can’t see your toes! (nb: Sue’s actually pregnant – not just getting fat.)

    kiss: what’d *you* have for lunch?

    colleen: noisier than the coffee grinder, not as noisy as the garborator. And I tried not to look too long at scary cartoon woman.

    Mark: Salad Loop = linkified.

  5. I’m going one step further, and researching good bootcamps. Yep, I’m going to endure the rain and the sleet, and get back into my skinny clothes by spring!! Anyone got any recommendations on Bootcamps downtown?

  6. You sound about as motivated as I am. But my excuse is a horrible head-cold I got New Year’s Eve (running a 5K road race with my hubby at midnight).

    I was even all set to start working on my new body on the 1st. I had bought a new journal, stocked up on vitamins and we had grocery shopped for healthy food instead of crap. Now I’m milking this cold for all it is worth, since I’ve lost my voice I used that excuse for not going to the gym after work tonight. πŸ™‚
