Its The Most Fattening Time of the Year!

I swear every segment on any talk show or any blog you read, and even headlines on main pages like MSN or your local television station, is about holiday weight gain.

This means I am not going to cover it.  I did last year.  Here it is in a nutshell.

Don't eat so much.

Oh and don't use the blah blah blah about how you aren't going to worry about it until after the first of the year...because its all a bunch of malarky.

OK, now that we have that out of the way...

In other news, and I apologize in advance for the randomness of this post, I have been so damn busy I can't see straight.  I worked the Turkey Trot packet pick up this weekend, both days...(work just ONE day there and then you would know one of the reasons why I loathe this race).  And on top of that, I ran that crappy run on Saturday, worked 8+ hours at the store, then got my ass up early on Sunday morning to fit in a work out at the gym before going back for 5 more hours at the store...

So basically what I am trying to say is a) I'm exhausted and b) my body hurts so much (from the workout yesterday) that its just beyond horrible.  I cannot believe I managed to do this to myself yesterday (no Kyle involved).  Holy shit.  But the running must go on!!!  I think I'm staying off the weights until Wednesday when Kyle gets a hold of me again.  :)

Buuuuuuuuuuut on the bright side?  When I put on my 'skinny' jeans this morning, all the back to clean eating has definitely paid off (yes they fit just fine! Although I prefer them to be baggier than they are right now)...Now just to actually see that reflected on the scale (back to 117 or bust dammit!) and I need to see a lot (a LOT) more muscle...Yes, Kyle, I have the 'look' I'm going for and between you and me, we're gettin' there you hear me?!?!??!  :O)

Then to top it all off thinking what an easy week this was going to be at  No.  Its been ballz to the wallz since I got here and its just not fair!!!!!!!!!

And I still havent decided if I am going to actually run the Turkey Trot (down in Sugarland) or not...  :O)  

Are you running in one???

Oh and since there seems to be zero interest in the Gatorade Chew giveaway, I guess I should just scrap it and keep them for myself!!!!!! 

OK, back to work I go!!!!!!!!!  No rest for the weary!

No Trots for me. The one here is mid-morning which gets in the way of my meal prep for my guests. Plus it's 45 mins from my house

I'll trot on my own that morning

Surprisingly enough, I've actually lost weight the past 2 years during the holiday season...has something to do with a weight goal for the Houston 1/2, lol! Hey, whatever keeps me in check!
