Happy Valentines Day/Lent (Weigh-in Day)

Hmmm…. So I am really hating this whole computer-less lifestyle right now. All the posts that I thought I had been posting since the 9th haven’t posted…simply because (apparently) my Kindle hates the schedule thing. I went to go check and see what was going on…and all 4 posts still show “scheduled.” Grrr.

So poo on my kindle.

Not only does not having a kindle mess up my blogging…but I cant do my Pound classes either. My kindle wont support the videos. Josh’s game system wont allow my to even log in. And the computer that is good for nothing BUT videos (keyboard doesn’t work) lags several seconds. So I have this awesome workout trapped on the interwebs that I cant use regardless of the different kind of technology thingers in my house. I even woke up at 6:30am in hopes the lag would be ok. Was it? Of course not.

Since I started this post off to a rather crappy start…how about a huge and positive Happy Valentines Days! Ahhh the day for overpriced jewelery, boxes of chocolates with a 8:1 gross:tasty ratio, and generic/cliched cards. Hugs all around!

Soooo…. now that I am done complaining. Haha.

But Ash Wednesday was…um… Wednesday. So it took me until yesterday to decide what I am giving up for Lent. Most people have a good idea well before Ash Wednesday…but I figure the day of is good enough. So…I’m going to give up being lazy! Woot! Mainly in the sense of my workouts. I would have loved to give up workouts…but noooo. I was thinking in the sense of how sporatic my workouts have been. So I am going to make a point to workout.

Hence my waking up at 6:30am. So I am going to be a good little Lent-ee (Lenter?) And go for it. Working out at least three times a week.

It also stemmed from my weigh in yesterday.

Last Weigh-in: 185
This Weigh-in: 185
Total Lost: 0

Alas, another week that I haven’t lost anything. Its frustrating. Many people say…”at least you didn’t gain” which is good…but I really wanted to lose something. The only thing I could think of was that I wasn’t exercising that much. Enough to apparently maintain 185…not enough to lose. I don’t know for real…I’m not a dietitian…wild guess.

So it seemed fitting to exercise for Lent. For the next 40 days and 40 night (apparently that doesn’t include Sundays…as they are supposedly mini-Easters) I am going to exercise at least 3 times a week.

Of course I’m going to keep going after the 40 days…. no reason to drop back into laziness….right?

So wish me luck on my Lent thing!

What are you giving up for Lent?
