Blog Posts Two Days in a Row!

I'm so freakin' mad at myself today. And now I'm going to try to convince myself that I shouldn't be.

Fantasy: Get up at 6am this morning to go downstairs and use my new treadmill for the very first time. This would give me lots of time for my run (which will be short, since it's been a while), and some crunches. And I'd feel great about the fact that I got in a great little workout before work. And I'd make coffee before getting the dog and DBF up for their day!

Reality: Alarm went off at 6am as expected. I gave some thought to getting up and going downstairs. I really did. However, being snuggled in bed so nicely was very appealing, so that is where I stayed. I get up at 7.15am feeling quite disappointed in myself.

Now, here's why I shouldn't be kicking myself quite so much about this: I NEVER get up at 6am to run, nor have I ever before! Even when I was running regularly, I usually ran in the evening, except on Sunday mornings.

Bottom line: I DO need to start my running routine again. I DO NOT need to get up at 6am to do so.

Having said that, I will try to get up at 6am again tomorrow... LOL

It's Been Almost a Month Since My Last Post - Inexcusable! Tsk, tsk Teed...

Wow, that's a long time not to post! My apologies to anyone who may still be checking to see if I've posted... :-S

This new pup and work have pretty much taken over any spare time I thought I had! I can't believe how much work Samson has proven to be, but he is starting to shape up to be a good little guy. I just wish he was through the biting stage - my hands have little cuts and nicks all over them!

Tomorrow night is week 4 of 6 of our puppy manners class. Samson's catching on quite well - he now knows the "sit", "stay", and "down" commands pretty well. We're still working on "leave it" and walking well on the leash, although he's definitely getting better. We're going to try to arrive at class pretty early tomorrow night, because if we get there just a few minutes before class starts he nearly chokes himself trying to get to all the other puppies in the room. I'm hoping we'll have time to get lots of puppy introductions done before the start of class tomorrow night.

On the weight loss front, I have cancelled my WW online account and don't miss it at all. I hadn't been using it to it's full potential anyway, since I went back to Sparkpeople. I'm actually much happier using their system. I'm still accountable for what I eat, and it's free to use. And I find it much more forgiving than the WW program. Not that I'm saying WW doesn't work, because I'm living proof that it does! I'm just saying that for now I'm happier tracking my progress with Sparkpeople instead. And Sparkpeople really caters to the geek in me, since it tracks every little element of my diet and helps me analyze it. I love that stuff!

We also bought a treadmill on the weekend, although I have yet to try it out. That's this evening's goal, although I'm not sure if I'll find the time since Steve's working late tonight and I think I have to come back into the office too. I'll bring the pup with me and we'll try to fit in a walk so he's not so high strung while I'm working.

Tonight's supper (although late) is one of my favourites - a burger and LF fries! I love those nights!
