Thanksgiving Workout Vacation




Which of these words is not like the other?

On Friday a coworker said to me, “So what are you going to do on your vacation?”

I responded, “Sleep and watch TV”

“And….” she said..


“And???” She said..

Sigh… “Workout”.



Can’t a girl take a week off work… on a Holiday Week and not workout?

Ah… NO!

So that shall be my week. Sleep. Watch TV. Workout

Work it on out…

So I worked out Saturday morning. Then Sunday off as usual. Worked out Monday afternoon. Today.. Tuesday… ah… well…. Lets not comment on that.

Well here is what happened. It’s Tuesday in a fun-packed Holiday Week.  Wednesday I have meet with Amanda and do my Monthly weigh in. Agh.  Thursday, as most of you know, is Thanksgiving.. which means… Gambling!  And then Friday.. well I imagine I will workout and do a little Black Friday afternoon “window” shopping.    I expect Saturday will be more of the same. So see, I needed a day to myself. A day of doing nothing. A day of cleaning the kitchen as well. A lazy vacation day…

Why is that last paragraph all crap??? BECAUSE I HAVE TO WEIGH IN TOMORROW. I should have done a marathon today. I shouldn’t be sitting here in my desk chair typing on this blog. I have calories to burn! More so since I ate those donuts. Oops.. did I just mention donuts? I didn’t mean to do that.

Act like you didn’t read the word “donuts”. All three of them. Oops.. Crap.

I know I will still weigh in less than a month ago, but I will probably miss my goal by 2 pounds. Again. Self-sabotage is my middle name.

It’s the diet that will kill you.

And it is killing me. Not literally or at least not today. I can’t get a handle on the dieting portion of this great plan. It’s a life style change, right? And I guess changing your life style doesn’t happen overnight, but, you know, it’s been months.  I am losing weight, just extremely slowly, and I know that if I was good and didn’t cheat so much it would float off a little faster. How does one avoid the cheats? I mean let’s face it.. Pizza (last nights dinner) and donuts (remember we aren’t talking about those) are out there.. Everywhere. Taunting me. Laughing at me.  I mean I live across the street from a place called PARADISE PIZZA! Do I even have a chance? Life would be so much better if a chicken breast tasted like a slice of Pepperoni and Sausage pizza. That is a question that will haunt me forever….

So what’s a pizza-holic to do?

I don’t have an answer. Today I put on a pair of jeans that are one size smaller. They are just tight enough to remind me what pizza has done to my life.

But hey.. they also zipped up.

  1. Hey people, it’s Thanksgiving Day! I’m happy with my extra day off, and I am planning to doing something fun that will probably involve a car trip and seeing something new in Coconut Creek I haven’t seen yet.
    You write something new at Thanksgiving?
