Back from Santa Fe

So the boy and I went to Santa Fe this weekend. And pretty much ate and drank nonstop. I'm okay with it because it was my decision to have a great weekend and enjoy myself and that's exactly what I did. So remember I had gained five pounds. Well last week I lost all but two of that, which still sucked because it was a two pound gain. Then of course I went and probably gained about 30 pounds, but I'm going to try to get some of that bloat and water weight off before I step on the scale again.

The good news is, I did work out in Santa Fe. I didn't have the little book where my trainer wrote down all of my moves, but I did my best. All in all, a fabulous weekend with the boy and a couple pound gain will be worth it. Let's hope that doesn't happen anyway though. Today is serving as sort of a detox day, and I made it to the gym tonight as well. I'm feeling good and ready to kick some pre-holiday ass. I don't have any delusions about how hard these next two weeks are going to be, but I'm still going to give it a shot. If I can come out of 2005 under 190, I'll be happy. About 10 weeks ago I said I wanted to come out of 2005 at 175. Clearly that is not happening. I'm sort of ambivalent about that I guess.

Anyway, I have my next session with the trainer on Wednesday, where he's going to weigh and measure me. Great. Not looking forward to finding out my body fat percentage. It is what it is though.

I stumbled across your blog a while ago. And today I finally was able to take the time to read it. Yes, ALL of it. Once I started, I couldn’t stop reading… :-)

I really like the way you write! And, trying to lose weight and getting fit as well, I can relate to so many things you said… While reading, I often thougt: „This could be me! That’s exactly how I feel/think…“ Although I have to admit that I’m a far cry from being as committed to exercising as you are! You’re doing so great with your bike riding, swimming and now your personal trainer. And I’m truly impressed by your triathlon goal… (Maybe I should find myself such a goal to keep me focused on exercising too?)

Anyway, what I really wanted to tell you here is the following… Your blog is cool, your writing style appeals to me and your motivation impresses and inspires me! Good on you! I will come back to read your updates regularly now, that’s for sure. And if you don’t mind, I’ll link your blog to mine…

Take care
alea
