Merry Christmas, is it over yet?

Well, a miracle happened, I only weighed 130.6 this morning after my little binge yesterday. You would think that would motivate me to me semi-good today. But today is Christmas Day, do I need any other reason to take a day off of my regular diet? Besides I still have 1/2 lb. See's candy left over.

I knew I was going to yoga class this morning and I had my snatch WO to do this afternoon.

I think because I stopped eating yesterday around 1:30 it saved me (a little bit). So, of course I think I can get away with doing the same thing today.

When I got home from yoga around 10am I just surrendered to the stinking candy. I started eating it kind of slowly thinking I would make it last a while. And then I just said "screw it" (anyone who knows me, knows what I really said!). I needed to just get rid of it! I ate the rest of it and then it was gone! Thank God, it's over!

I started my pea and ham soup then headed out to the garage for my snatch WO. Here's what I did;

12:00 KB snatch

Warm up w/26

40 2 hand swings x 3 sets 1 min. on 1 min. rest = 6 min. total
1 two hand swing, 1 overhead swing, 15 reps x 3 sets 1 min. on 1 min. rest = 6 min total

Work Sets w/26

20 1 trans., 1 high pull, 1 snatch, 2 min. on 1 min. rest

24 1 snatch, 1 trans., 1.5 min on 1 min. rest

10 snatch L, 10 snatch R, 10 snatch L, 10 santch R 2 min. on 1 min. rest

I alternated these 3 sets in order #1,2,3, three times and then reversed the order,#3,2,1, three times. For a total of 6 rotations. Each rotation took 8.5 min. x 6 sets = 51.0 min.

Total WO time 63.0 min.

8:00 Bikram yoga
AM weight 130.6

Monday Menu

coffee w/cream (no cocoa today because of the candy)
lamb w/vegetables
ice cream

I stopped eating at 3:30, took an hour nap, contemplated going for a walk, but realized a walk was not going to save me! No use spending an hour away from my family to burn around 200 calories. Tomorrow is a new day.

I'm planning on going to Stanford to do some after xmas shopping, then stop at Girya to do a quick swing WO with the 18's.

Los gatos Yoga Source is moving to a new location as of 1/5/07. Right now it's on N. Santa Cruz. It's moving to a 4000sq ft studio on Los Gatos Blvd., near Kinko's. It's going to be AWESOME! I'm already used to it, but different crowd of people in LG.

Thanks again for the support and encouragement. I just logged on to write a new post, a more positive one. I didn't mean to sound so negative lately.

P.S. I managed to make it up to SF this morning for the after xmas sale at Saks Fifth Ave. Unbelievably smokin' deals! I'll tell you all about next time I see you!
