Damn you winter! You totally screwed up my morning! I was all dressed in my running gear. I was going to brave you rotten roads. I packed up both girls and headed out. It took me 15 minutes to get 2 kms to the sitter's house to drop off Lola! No plows! I thought to myself ...hmmm... maybe I should rearrange my errands as we are expected to get another 15 cm's today. So I responsibly headed to the grocery store for chicken first instead of last. Lucy and I go in and chat with the ladies working there, get our chicken, and as I'm chatting at the cash, the cashier, my neighbour, says to me I hope you make it home before the plow comes by. Oh SHIZNIT!!!! I hadn't even thought about that. I'm driving a minivan and that does not like to plow through 3-4 feet of snow. No siree bob! So I decided to say suck it to going to the gym or my nutritionist.
And a good thing I did too. The main road out of my little community is shut because of an accident. And the main highway, at my off ramp is shut as a tractor trailer went through the guard rail. So um yeah roads are bad.
I did call JD though and ask him to bring me home a 4x4 . I plan on hitting the gym tonight after Lucy is in bed. I signed up for some races this summer last night and my first one is a trail run in April. So I need to get my ass in gear and get back on the treadmill. Plus it goes along with my lifestyle change. I need the cardio and strength training to feel the way I want to.
The lifestyle change is hard. Lola had the flu for 2 days and Lucy was keeping us up at night, which in turn made me so exhausted yesterday that I threw up twice. So I didn't eat all the food I was supposed to yesterday and that makes a huge difference. Plus I cheated 3x last week. Not my best effort. But change doesn't happen in an instant, unless it's a diaper! Lol! But I am still down 3lbs.
The morning after I started all of this I shot up to 153lbs and as of this morning I am down to 150 lbs. I'm not overly excited about this as since I've had Lucy I have floated between 146-150 lbs. When I got past 150 I knew it was time to make the change. I wasn't dropping anymore. The days I have the hardest time are the days JD is home. So I have to be super vigilant the rest of the time.
Tonight I am trying a new recipe. Ginger chicken stir fry with asparagus. I hope its as good as it sounds. Gosh I hope this blizzard passes soon I need to get my new routine down. Tomorrow we have Lucy's 6 month well check. I will post her stats and 6 month picture tomorrow when I get home.
If you are in eastern USA or southern Ontario Canada - drive safe my friends!
