Exercise was a bust. Got up in enough time to do the Exercise On Demand thingy on Time Warner Cable only to find out that they replaced it with a series of exercise videos out of what looks like somebody’s garage. Gone are the “Kick-Boxing Blast”, “Beach Body Boot Camp” and “After This Video You’ll Call Your Mom Crying That You Got Your Butt Kicked Then We’ll Come To Your House and Make You Do 100 Chin Ups and 300 Lunges Just For Crying About It…Workout” and in it’s place are crappy videos that look about as challenging as reaching for something on the top shelf. I’m not saying I need a drill sargent in every video, just somebody who doesn’t look like or sound as boring as an accountant. (My apologies to you rad accountants out there, much love). Anyway, I did some wonderful stretching I remember from a while back, and will soon get back to the gym. Although I do hate Urban Active with the firey passion of 1000 suns and plan to break up with them soon.
Food was rockin’, except when a co-worker brought in no-bake cookies because he knew they were my favorite (seriously, Universe, you cheeky monkey) So, I decided that I would have one but would faithfully record it my handy dandy little phone app. Turns out that there were entries for every kind of cookie (seemingly) but nothing for No Bake. Which begs the question, is this a regional thing? Does this ball of deliciousness go by another name? Or is it possible that it just hasn’t been added? I’m going for the latter, but if any of you know of another name, lemme in on it. I crave trivial knowledge like a fat kid loves cake. So, you know, me.
Tune in tomorrow when we address the question - Can Rice Cakes Substitute for Packing Material?
Day One is in the books, and I’m pretty happy with the results. I didn’t get my exercise in, so that’s goal number 1 for tomorrow. Well, I did take the stairs, which I generally avoid because of their jerk status. So, you know, that could be regarded as progress. My food was good. I gotta say, this food journal app, while somewhat a pain in the ass, plays on my laziness in a good way. There were free cookies in the breakroom (thanks for the support, Universe) and I didn’t mindlessly grab one and eat it because I DIDN’T WANT TO GO THROUGH THE EFFORT OF PUTTING IN THE APP. How goddamned lazy is that? Am I afraid I’ll get winded just typing? It’s brilliant! Oh, and by eating better food, I wasn’t as hungry. I only got to 75% of my caloric intake for weight loss, and I’m pleasantly full. Take that, mindless snacking! I’m having fun so far. Let’s see if I can kick Day Two’s ass harder than Day One.
