Whine or Wine or Wino Whining

I'm still downloading data.  I swear, this is taking forever.  I wish I had backed up every single thing on my computer WAY before it needed to be backed up.  I'm having trouble with the videos, and I don't want to lose the precious moments of Darling Daughter learning how to walk or cramming cake into her face, or Number One's school presentation, or Number Two talking to me about nothing at all in particular.  I need to find some disks and burn them, so they don't get lost.

I'm having a hard time with motivation this week.  I'm not sure why.  I had intentions of waking up early yesterday and going for a run.  I wanted to see how my leg felt, but I talked myself out of it.  Then, I thought, "Well, I'll just go at lunch," but Number Two was sick, so I didn't go.  I didn't go after sunset either.  I'll Taekwondo today, so that will be my exercise, and I guess I'll see how running goes on Sunday when I have more time to talk myself back into doing it. Lately, I've hated getting started and I think it's because I'm afraid of the pain. 

I did do something though. I got back on MyFitnessPal.  My weight crept up, slowly, while I traveled almost the whole month of February.  I knew it would: eating out is not good for weight loss and neither is drinking.  So, I logged back onto MyFitnessPal to try to take off the tenish pounds I've put on in the last month.  It's always easier to keep it off than to try to lose it again.  Logging back on made me realize: a) how much I really was overeating because the first day on there I was SO hungry and b) alcohol REALLY needs to be limited if you're trying to lose weight, unless you just want a liquid lunch, which sometimes, really, I'm not so opposed to!

So my goals for the upcoming week are:

  • Attempt a run to see how it feels
  • Log into MFP every day to track food
  • Write and Revise (once the computer is fixed--this weekend hopefully)
  • Finish reading Underworld, which shouldn't be a problem as I only have about 100 pages left.


  1. Yeah, that reminds me....I probably need to back up again too! :)
