No Pain No Gain, especially during the Holidays!

No matter how much I don't want to work out, when I do it anyway, I feel sooooo much better.  Today was Month 2 Week 3 Day 2 of triathlete training and I'm so happy I didn't skip it.

35 minutes including cool down at Level 7 - 6 miles, 152 calories

Strength Training:
1) LM pulls 10x12x2
2) Lat pulldowns 80x12x2

1) DB press 10ea/20total x 12x2
2) DB side raises 2.5es/5total x 12x2

1) Ball crunches x12x2
2) Heel touches x12x2

10-15 minutes full body stretching

Well, with the holidays here, my food temptations have increased a hundred-fold.  I'm hoping that moderation is the key.  Today at work, besides being "Donut Day," someone also brought in homemade brownies.  I stood fast on my refusal of Donuts, but the brownies?????  Oh no.  I had one.  I searched the pan for the smallest possible piece and ate that one.  Mmmmmman was that good.  I'm so glad I had to spend the rest of the day away from those pieces of chocolate crack, because I just don't know how it would have turned out.  I could smell them from my desk for cryin' out loud.  It's just wrong.  Why can't fattening food taste terrible if it's so bad for us, ya know?

Anyway, I keep forgetting to step on the scale in the mornings, but my holiday goal remains the same.  No gain - go for a loss - but most importantly, NO GAIN.  So that old saying is true in so many ways.  "No pain, no gain" also means yes, turning down yummy food may seem like pain, but it's good because it means you won't gain!!
