<----- She is a LIAR

Last night I was LITERALLY 30 seconds from sending Mr. P for a Sonic Lo Cal Cherry Limeade and burgers when Mr. P was looking through the guide on the DVR and I saw that Biggest Loser had started and asked him to turn it on. As I watched the opening credits and first challenge I just stared at the television and asked myself why would I let work angst lead to fat angst AGAIN and AGAIN and AGAIN. So last night, I didn't. I clicked off of FaceBook and went to the WeightWatchers website and entered all my points for Monday AND Tuesday. I then went into the kitchen and fixed my version of mac and cheese (semolina with a laughing cow wedge), dug a peach and some spinach out of the crisper and managed to stay within Points yesterday.

On November 7, Mr. P and I are running in a 10K at twilight through a park filled with Christmas lights. I want to jog the whole thing (no walking), so I started a training program on Monday...today I did yesterday's workout, and since today was a scheduled rest day, I am no longer behind. BUT, my Nike + chickadee is a skanky liar. I actually ran my 3 miles in 39 minutes, but my Nike+ keeps "ending workouts" at will, and I have to restart it...today it was after 1.07 miles, then after another 1.4 miles, then again after .02 miles and I got frustrated and just listened to music and finished up...it was my normal 5K route, so I know I got the mileage in...I will spend some time today trying to figure out why it is doing that. I hate to have to buy another one, but I will...I need to visit Nike + to view my runs. NEED it.

Now to get ready for work...oh and karma can be mean. Mr. P is sick now. That's what we get for taking a freebie.

Sorry to hear your Nike "mi" is being such a ditch pig!

Have you tried clicking the hold button over once you start the run? Perhaps it is jiggling round and hitting end?

I'm so happy to read that you got right back on track. Way to go!!

I want to go to that run too, I need to remember to tell Teddy about it. I think I have run 10K one time, I should probably work on that.

It is funny to see your Nike girl very excited about running .03 miles.

We watched The Biggest Loser last night, too. And all I can say is that woman whose husband and children were killed in a car accident? She needs to be kicked off now. Every time she opens her mouth, I cry. Not fair!

How cool that your switch got flipped while watching the Biggest Loser - love that you nixed the Sonic food for some healthy stuff!

Even jogging, a 10K sounds so far out of reach for me...I'm really impressed by your running abilities!

Love that story! I didn't know BL was back on... maybe that's the kick in the butt I need.

Jenn said...

I love that you started back up at the very moment, instead of saying, "I'll start tomorrow". Just do it!

Ha ha, I had to read a couple times before I realized "burgers" was in tiny letters.
Fall off, get back on, fall off, get back on...I feel like that is the story of my life. But, better than fall off and wallow in the mud, I suppose!
