Status Update

So the plan to lose 10 pounds by August 15th was going really well, for a week. This week is not really happening. Not like I'm sitting around eating cupcakes and drinking Bud Heavy, but I have literally no motivation to work out. I went for a run yesterday for the first time since Friday and it was lovely and all, but now my right ankle is super sore and I woke up feeling like I took three boot camp classes instead of just the two and half miles I ran. Not to toot my own horn or anything, but I ran a half marathon in March, that's 13.1 miles. I should be able to handle two and not wake up the next morning feeling like Jane Fonda on a Sunday. I was going to do Tae Bo today but now I'm not. It's literally that simple. I might get in a few measly ab exercises before heading up to babysit for the brady bunch (Mom is two years older than me and pregnant with her third child in three years. Not judging or anything, but that is not for me).

Additionally, I spent way too much money yesterday on things like sushi, frozen yogurt, and Inception. I only regret one of those, and it was definitely the one that involves raw fish, but the idea of tuna from a can for dinner again was too depressing for me to even handle. So, strikes again in aiding my financial demise. I need to figure out what to do with these kids for three hours today, we can't leave the apartment because its a fourth floor walk up and I'll be damned if I'm carrying a HUGE 18 month old up and down those steps, and there's only so much Wonder Pets a 24 year old with a BA can handle. Maybe I'll just do sit ups and ask them to sit on my abs.

Oh sweet, just got called to "play" a victim on SVU tomorrow. Maybe I don't have to regret that $15 sushi dinner anymore.

Time for some sit ups.

SVU = Great Show. Awesome. (Well I enjoy it) BTW, Inception? Go or no-go?
