Operation MILF, Week…10?

Sooo…yeah…been a few weeks. Oops. I have a myriad of excuses I could list out but I’m too lazy at the moment. I will just say I’ve been slacking a lil bit here and there, and doing work other heres and theres. With 1 being a total utter fat@$$ and 10 being the Stepford wife of health & fitness, I’ve been, like, a 6. Maybe 5.5. I’ve been getting no fewer than 3 workouts each week, and been tracking my calories a few days each week. Even on the days I don’t work out and/or don’t count calories I don’t just fall off the deep end into a blobbish existence. Sure, I went to the state fair, where the slogan this year was “Fried and Joy”, and perhaps I ate nearly an entire pan of brownies in a matter of 3 days. But, I walked over 10,000 steps by being at the fair and I totally eliminated the chance of being tempted to eat brownies for longer than those short 3 days. Boom. Rationalized. And since when did 3 workouts in a week become paltry? That used to be the goal. D@ng getting old sucks – I blame 30. If I don’t workout 5x/week I feel like a pile of lard.

So anyway, last Sunday my sweet hubby surprised me outta nowhere with a FitBit. I’ve wanted one for some time now but couldn’t ever justify the expense. So that was super cool and awesome. I really like it so far. Unfortunately I’ve only gotten 10k steps in a day twice in 2 weeks, but now that I’m “back” I’ll be making more of an effort. It’s easier to get close to 10k steps when my workout includes treadmill time and lately I’ve been doing Insanity for my cardio and it’s not as many steps.

Despite the mediocre last couple-few weeks (that one’s for you, Kare!), I am actually not a blimp. I have my days where I feel fat and days I feel thin, same as always, but overall it’s been pretty good. This week I weighed in at 143.8, 144.6, and today was 142.0. That last one was post-Insanity and is insane so I don’t put much weight in that number. See what I did there? I plan on getting consistent with the weigh ins and the workouts and the counting yet again. Fat, be d@mned!

As of recently, I now also have a really super mega motivating reason to get my arse in gear. Yeah, being healthy is good, having energy is nice, being proud of myself is cool, blah, blah, blah… But more importantly– We booked our 1st cruise!!! That’s right, in a few months our lil trio will be hitting the high seas. #MyHubbyIsBetterThanYours #ImmaBeOnABoat #HunnyBunnysBday #IDontGetHashtags #ButTheyMakeMeLaughSometimes #BabysFirstBoatRide #TimeToGetSexy #CorrectionSexier #SomebodyStopMe #CruisinAndBoozin #TommyBahamaShirts #BabysButtDimplesAreOkayButMomsArent #BoredOfThis

So, kinda like I sexified myself for our my 1-year anniversary Puerto Vallarta trip in 2007 and again for our Hawaii trip in 2012, Imma be workin on my fitness for no reason more important than squeezing this soft yet sensual bod into a bikini. Then I’ll promptly gain 10 pounds while on the 7-night cruise because Hellooooooooo, unlimited free delicious food. It’s the American thing to do. USA! USA! USA! I had way too much fun at Goodwill buying cruise clothes for the boy – it’ll be middle of winter and he’ll need summer clothes that will fit so I decided to pop some tags on the cheap. Got everything for either $1.49 or $0.74 a piece.  I couldn’t resist the lil Tommy Bahama shirts!

 Not sure I have a message or moral to this post other than it’s not the end of the world to fall off the weight-loss wagon. A week or 2 will not make or break the progress to your goals and doesn’t make or break you. Spoken like a true lazy person, right? Well, I am that so it’s fitting. Is being totally dedicated to your health and fitness better than being not dedicated once in a while? Yes, probably. Is it the end of the world if you stray from the path now and then? No, definitely not. Just leave a trail of Oreo and Doritos crumbs to follow back and get back on it sooner than later. Suck it in, suck it up, get over the multiple cheat meals and those couple pounds, and press on.
