Is It Friday Yet?

I'm afraid not, my little gingersnaps.  Alas, it is only Thursday so yet another day dawns on the corporate world in which I survive.  Blech.

So checking in yesterday.
No Soda - Check
No Fast Food - Check
Vitamin - Seriously?
Calories - No check.  A big fat fail on this one.  I went about 500 calories over when all was said and done and no, these were not healthy protein filled calories.

It's the eating out.  I went out to lunch with a friend.  I know what the good choices are and I know what I SHOULD order but something yummy and tempting always wins out instead.  It so wasn't worth the calories.  This is purely a willpower thing.  I'll work on this.  Today should be OK...I've got my breakfast and lunch packed.  Dinner isn't planned yet but regardless of what I end up doing, I'm going to make my choice a healthy one, goshdarnit!

I did get my strengthening exercises in yesterday.
Kettlebells - Check
Push Ups - 27 (Girl push ups - +4 from last effort)
Sit Ups - 15  (+4 from last effort)

I'm also able to do more in each set.  I'm steadily making progress each day.  Hubby is picking up the pull up bar tonight but it will be a loooooooooong time before we see any progress on that.  Hubby went for a 1.5 mile walk with a friend of his last night.  I'm glad to see him jumping on the activity wagon.  He's also slowly getting filled back up (he had a complete unfill in early December).  I hope this band starts working for him soon.

Countdown to Color Run - 16 days.  I'm thinking I won't be able to run the entire thing but my goal is to finish under 40 minutes.  That will be an improvement on my last 5k time.  A good number of Hubby's friends are joining in the fun too.  They want to grab drinks or something afterwards.  I think that would be great but not sure if I'm going to ask my mom to watch the girls so we can do that.  My sister is in town that weekend and doing the run with us and I'm not sure if she'd want to hang out.  We'll see.

In the meantime, I'll just be hanging in there until Friday....   *sigh*

Yay for progress on the strength exercises.

Those high cal tempters are never worth it, but man it's tough to convince yourself of that when it comes time to order.
