I always have a "guard" when I am working out. My dog Silver is ready to go if my recumbent bike actually decides to take off one day. She always thinks I am going somewhere! For people who have dogs, you will understand the struggle of trying to work out with them. Especially when you try to do sit-ups on the floor! They think it's party time.
Well Thanksgiving is just around the corner. I cooked and had it at my house last year but this year I think my Mom and I are going to be crazy and go to the pre-black Friday deals they have on Thanksgiving Day. I don't like that they start black Friday early but I suppose it helps with the stampede of people killing each other. After all we can push Thanksgiving over a day right? Re-writing history is easy! Just kidding, but Thanksgiving has become more about black Friday and good deals than actually sitting down and being thankful. I have no idea who started this black Friday crap but it sure shoots everything you are thankful for out the window when you are cut throat next to someone else fighting over the latest deal & running over them to get through the doors. It's like Americas very own real version of the Hunger Games just on a retail scale. I can just picture myself rocking back in forth in lawn and garden wondering if my Mom is ok in cookware.
On to a more positive note, I am down 3 pounds! Like I said before I have been fluctuating with the same ten pounds but I am determined to stop the pattern. It is frustrating but in the end I also need to start being happy with myself. I am the way I am and I should be happy with my current shape. Sometimes I put way too much pressure on my need to succeed that I do just the opposite.
