Because I feel all squishy and like I've replaced some muscle with fat and that's why the scale isn't being cruel, but my body is taunting me with "Ney ney na ney ney, you're still a fattie."
It's time to hit the gym again. And hard.
I only worked out twice last week, and put up a mere 3.5 miles in my running totals. I'd like to blame the weights class that crippled me for 3 days, but I could have worked out Saturday or Sunday. I just didn't. I enjoyed the slothfulness of doing nothing way too much.
Erin over at Lose the Buddha is working out with a trainer, and I am so envious of her progress and her muscle building. (She's also getting married!) She's new to weight training and has generally not liked it, but now she's a convert. What impressed me most was this statement:
I feel like the woman in When Harry Met Sally after Sally's fake orgasm scene: "I want what she's having."
Here's the thing: losing weight made me thinner, and it uncovered a whole slew of body image issues I wasn't really prepared for. Lifting weights has shown me something new to try and love about my body, as opposed to hating or feeling self-conscious or apologetic for not taking up as much room anymore.
Guys, I am so bummed but we aren't going to go to Spain next year. Boohoo! (I know, I'm such a spoiled brat.) It was just getting too expensive with the Dollar in the toilet and flights going for upwards of $1200 a piece. And it's still a year away--who knows what misery the US $ will be going through in 2009. So, darn it, I spoke too soon (even though we did all have an "official" meeting and I was getting super excited over the whole trip) and it looks like we'll do something as a group next summer, but not in Europe.
And, poor Miss Sophie got strep throat, again. She definitely needs her tonsils out because they keep getting attacked. She's on zithromax now, and I hope her body isn't getting majorly screwed up with all the antibiotics she's been on this year. We meet with her doctor Thursday for her ear infection recheck and I'll be asking him about it then. Her ENT appointment isn't until June 9th. It can't get here soon enough.
