True Confessions::The Business of Busyness – The Shrinking Jeans of Christy


December 14, 2009 By Christy

Lord have mercy. Seriously. The business of busy-ness is really taking a toll on me. Running here and there and everywhere has my routine all fouled up. I need to take some deep breathes and get back on track.

When December first started, I smugly proclaimed that *I* would not let the holiday season get the best of me. Not me. No way in hell. While the month started off pretty well, now that we’ve reached the midway point, I feel myself sliding a little. Maybe it was:

  • The out of town wedding this past weekend, where I ate every meal out, and didn’t make the wisest choices. Oh, I also had 2 slices of cake, because it was a WEDDING and there was an amazing wedding cake AND a chocolate grooms cake. Killer.
  • While I did my EA SPORTS Active More Workouts every day last week, I didn’t get a chance to run because the rain, which led to lots of mud, and when you live on a dirt road, mud is no fun (unless you’re mud wrestling in a bikini, which means you need to RUN in order to look good in said bikini). I haven’t run in over a week, needless to say I’m not in bikini condition. SUCK.
  • My water intake is SUCKING. I completely blame this on the fact that I lost my 32 ounce water bottle. I totally need a new water bottle STAT.
  • I haven’t registered for the Sisterhood 1/2 marathon with Team in Training yet. I fully intend to soon, but I just haven’t had time!

Instead of sitting here feeling sorry for myself like a lazy slob on the couch, I’m going to fire up More Workouts to see if I can’t turn this slide around. Seriously. I’m not going down without a fight and I fully intend on finishing out the Shrink-a-Versary Extravaganza Challenge with a loss and not a gain!!
