Adjusted Reality

“Reality can be beaten with enough imagination.” – Mark Twain

Doing and Doing Nothing

This will be short and sweet.  I like to pull out the bullet points in these occasions:

  • Holiday party Thurs – I was good food-wise, but went a little overboard with the drinkies.  Although it resulted in belting out songs in the karaoke room with about 20 of my coworkers until 2 am.  Fun!
  • Went out of town Friday – Monday.  Went to Phoexix to visit a few friends.  I did not eat massive quantities, and did not eat 100% reprehensibly, but I did not eat like a normal Quix.  Most notedly, I kept ordering things without meat.  Weird for me.  Definitely feel compelled to eat more sweets and junk since though…
  • The rest of the week has just been playing catch up and getting ready for the end of the year.  I have about 10 more hours of work days (full day tomorrow, and I do mean FULL DAY, and a few hours Friday before the company takes us for a Tron double feature – the first movie and then the second.  Woohoo Alamo Draft House!) to wrap up everything for the end of the year.  It will be hectic, but I think I can do it.

Then…a long winter’s nap.  We’ve got some friend gathering type things this weekend and also a snuggie party, and then, a lovely, lovely two weeks off.

I’m just worried that I’ll fall onto the couch and not wake up until January.  There is so much I want to do in my 2 weeks off, but I know that I’ve run myself ragged this year and need a good few days of just hibernation!  I’ll have to split the difference between doing and doing nothing.  Goals and relaxation.  It’ll be a challenge but I think I’m up for it.

I’ve also started to consider my 2011 Resolutions.  Look for a post on those coming up.

Let’s talk about last week:

I was out of town so not tracking most days (I just found the spark people app to track on my phone YESTERDAY, oh well).  I would guess 1500 on the days I was in town, and between 1500-2000 the days I was out of town.

I’m already back on tracking this week and doing alright, so no worries there.

Workout-wise, here’s the trauma.  I kinda didn’t have time to do a workout on Friday with packing, but made all my other planned ones.  Yay!

Monday: 30 mins running sprints, 30 mins arms/back
Tuesday: 30 mins swim sprints, 30 mins legs/abs
Wednesday: 60 mins yoga, 25 mins arms/back
Thursday: 30 mins running sprints, 30 mins legs/abs
Friday: off (oops)
Saturday: off (out of town)
Sunday: off (out of town)

Here’s this week’s plan:

Monday: off (out of town)
Tuesday: 30 mins swim sprints, 30 mins arms/back
Wednesday: 30 mins run sprints, 30 mins abs/legs
Thursday: 30 mins bike sprints, 30 mins arms/back
Friday: 30 mins *some cardio*, 30 mins abs/legs
Saturday: off or mellow bike ride (for fun)
Sunday: long run

It’s a little more than usual but I’ve been slacking with only 3 days of cardio at 30 mins per day.  We will see what I’m compelled to do.  Tuesday-Friday are the required workouts.  The weekend ones are for fun.  I know I am a SICK, SICK puppy.

However, let’s talk weight.

167.2.  That would be the same that I weighed last week.  After lackluster cardio and being out of town for 4 days.  I was terrified to get on the scale but pleasantly surprised.  Can’t complain about that.  Gonna work my ass off this week and see if I can’t chip away a little more at that even in light of the dreaded TOM visiting me here shortly.

Yep, short and sweet today.  Lots to do this week.  Better than short and sour though!  So, I ask – what’s your single most important thing you want to get done before 2011?
