My YMCA trainer Joyce Niedzwiecki went home this past week to visit her family.
We were able to meet Sept. 17 before she left and the rest of the week I was on my own. I dusted off some exercise videos I had in the basement and went to water aerobics. Yes, Joyce I lifted weights while you were gone!
I was doing well until Friday came and I went to the Apple Festival for lunch. I couldn’t pass up the kettle corn and brought a bag home. It’s now Sunday and there is no kettle corn left. I did have some help, but for the most part, you guessed it, I ate the whole bag. I broke my rule of never sitting in front of the TV with a whole bag of anything. I usually measure out a portion for just this reason!
To add to the kettle corn extravaganza, I didn’t exercise on Friday or Saturday. I just needed a day off on Saturday to recharge. It’s been a long time since I had a day with no plans or places I had to be. I forgot how nice it is to stay in your jammies till noon and ease into the day, read a book. I didn’t care that it rained; I just enjoyed the sound of the raindrops hitting the metal roof and snuggled in with Bruce.
Sunday I started over, back to my exercise and food measuring routine. I have NOT given up, just a little speed bump in my journey. I will pick myself up from my skinny girl bootstraps and RUN.
