The lesser of two evils...

I thought I would write an entry right now because I am pouting. They are serving my favorite cafeteria food meal at school today… breaded pork chop, to die for, melt in your mouth yeast rolls, broccoli and cheese, and chocolate milk. Oh, AND they have real fried chicken today. No matter what diet I’ve been on, I find a way to fit this meal into my plan every month when they serve this. No kidding, the yeast rolls are buttery and melt in your mouth. So as my co-worker sits besides me eating this meal, I sit here eating nothing. Because it’s not time for me to eat for another 1 ½ hours. I am pouting. Dieting sucks. But so does being fat. I guess dieting is the lesser of two evils. At least I’m not hungry…

I decided to day that it’s time for me to go back to the gym. Instead of focusing on cardio, I will now focus on weights. Greta (Big Bottom Blogger) left me a comment the other day on how I need to start lifting weights, and I agree. I am losing weight kind of fast, and I don’t want to be left looking like a deflated balloon. I figured that I would set aside 3 days per week to so strength training. With soccer season starting (first practices are tonight), I will have to MAKE the time. I am also going to get a fitness assessment done. It’s only $10 for members, and gives you percentage of fat with the calipers, and they do a number of tests to get your fitness level. I think it will be cool to do it now, and then do it again after I’ve lost a bunch of weight!

Did I mention that I am going to be the assistant coach on my 4-yr old daughter’s team? They know I have no experience in this kind of thing – only being a soccer mom – but they needed volunteers and chose me. Should be fun.

I am also doing a 5K on Saturday. It is the same one I did last year – my son’s school sponsors it, and the whole district participates. Have I been walking? No. Do I plan on walking this week to prepare for it? Yes. The weather is supposed to be nice today, tomorrow, and Friday. Even if it’s late, I am going to at least walk around the block a few times. My body feels like it is ready for regular exercise again.

On another note... several people have contacted me asking about Medifast, and expressing that they would like to do the program, but cost is an issue. The good folks at Medifast have offered a coupon code for my readers that will give you $50 off an order of $275 or more. Email me if you would like the code. I don't get anything from this... I will continue to get my product for free, regardless. I am just passing along a deal. :)
