Slowly Spudding my way into full gear....

Christmas holidays are fun, they are awesome, full of gifts, visiting with friends and family, at least a few stat days off and last but not least.... food. I didn't run for at least 3 weeks, but I still ran around doing groceries, xmas shopping, baking for cookie exchanges and cleaning house.  I ate pretty much whatever I wanted, but tried to not totally crazy :P  After all that.. I didn't gain any weight.. yay me, but I feel like a slug on a rug on drugs... I need to rev up the Spud-O-nator again :P

I haven't run yet this week, but I've been working out with the Wii fit and my Jillian Michaels game (trainer from the Biggest Loser)  I figure I could take another week away from running just to ease myself back off the couch and into "movement mode".

I'm also tweeking my diet a lot, trying to focus a lot on veggies and fruit hoping that they will fill me up before I reach for something else.  Veggie soups, veggie snacks, apple slices and some almonds should be good for me at work and at home I'm going to also use the veggie soup and some chicken boobs... we'll see how that goes.

So I'm aiming to be back on the treadmill next week... and now I leave you to go sweat a bit ... you know, it's like sweating with the oldy  :P

Spud out!


  1. I'm the same as you... too much Christmas, too little exercise. Although, I didn't give up completely on my workouts over the break... just drastically cut down on them.
    Back to real life this week :)

    The swim did me some good though! Keep up the good work, we'll be making the 5k in May for sure!!!

  2. seriously, my verification word was "hornicr". hmm...
