Stuffed Like The Turkey [Not A Porno Reference, Just FYI]

Happy Monday! How was the weekend? Was it as good for you as it was for me? I ate, drank and was generally merrier than a person should be. Holidays are good for that stuff. Along with this great weekend however, came THREE mother effing pounds. How is that even possible?? Let's hope it is a lot of sodium bloat, and not a lot of fat on my ass, shall we?  [Just an aside, never, EVER google "fat ass" for images.  {{Full body shudder}}]

My scale was SUPER disappointed with me this morn.... 

Today's moment on the scale brought me immediately back to reality though, and the reality is that it's time to kick things up a notch. [Sorry for the Emeril reference, I know its been overdone]. I've been talking lately with several people about the importance of weights in a work out, and I've decided it's time. I've [finally, foolishly] decided to let my work-out-obsessive-weight-lifting-machine co-worker show me a new weight lifting routine today. Will it be the one I end up sticking to? Will I fall over and die?  Will I embarass myself totally and completely? Who knows. The point is that I'm stepping out of my comfort zone. I need new ideas, new routine, new everything.
This is me. 

I've been feeling a little stuck lately with this whole diet/exercise gig. No clue if you've all noticed my lack of blog posts, but I just haven't had a lot to say. Also, I'm teetering really close to "the weight I never get below, ever", and I think it's screwing with me. I know I CAN get past it, but at the moment it seems daunting. So I'm shaking it up. I'm going to add weights. I'm going to start running again. More importantly, I'm going to start blogging obsessively again so no one has to fret over that. [Not that you were or anything...]

I'll try my best to get my new, improved workout schedule over to MT tomorrow in time for fat stats. In the meantime though, I figure I should mention that we were featured on the Skinny Runner blog this past holiday weekend!!! Skinny Runner is a marathon-running machine, and I'm pretty sure MT has a major girl crush on her. We are SUPER proud to be featured over on her blog, so go take a look! Also, if you've found us via Skinny Runner, then WELCOME!!! Please prepare yourself for amazingly random topics and copious amounts of profanity.

Here's to a new week! What's on everyone's work out agenda???
