Fitness Friday 3rd week of Febuary {linky}

by superexhausted on February 24, 2012

So this week has been hard,  like every week.  does it every get easy? I guess not.  I love me in all my glory,  but there are days I wish I could wear those boots. You know the ones the ones the healthy (thin) girls wear. You know who you are, oh how I covet those thin heeled boots. Unless you are not over 175 lb you don’t understand heels flex they move when you are larger.  Make you feel unstable like the heel could snap off any second. Having a heel break off is like bending over and having your pants split.. Not  Good.

The calves part of the boot,  they wont  fit unless you buy once labeled “big girl boot” .  I assure you no “big girl boot”  is are made out of that beautiful thick  ridding boot saddle grade leather, the word pleather comes to mind..  I will get there one step at a time ..That was my Rant and yes you.. I covet your boots.

My Cake Hardship; My sons birthday weekend:   I did good til the 2nd cake was left in my house.  The 1st cake I threw out and no I did not go in the garbage to get it ala a Seinfeld episode. The 2nd cake the homemade one.. I made the mistake of icing it.. yea I love icing, some how I had to use 2 cans (it was a 13x 9 cake) so I ate the bottom of the icing..

Then it the cake called me .. it said “Sherry you love cake homemade cake come stand  next to me and take a sliver”..

You know “the sliver” effect if you slice it small enough it wont matter.

Then comes the “even it up” piece ..

Then back “the sliver” a vicious vicious circle.

needless to say the cake goes in the trash tomorrow.

Fitness Movement:

Monday: walked around the block run 40 seconds

Tues: walked in city with Hillary-  forgot my photo  walk to car looking for it after I was almost to the event

Thanks you to Julie Myers Pron at  for posing knowing I was coveting her boots.

LOL – That’s a great photo of Julie’s boots!

My post is all about pacing myself. I feel stronger so I push myself to do more and I end up with an injury. Of course, being type a about exercising, I have to find some way to exercise even if I’m supposed to be resting an injury.

Great link up again! I know what you mean about the boots, although there is no way I can wear heels of any sort any more….darn flat feet! Pregnancy pretty much destroyed my feet! Good for you for keeping active this week, despite the cake! If you ever want to join me at the Y, you are welcome! It really helps to have someone as an exercise buddy.

Thank for the support Diane. I would love to join you some day. But the puppy will not forgive me he actully pulls out his leash. I am proud of you and your journey and persistence.

My first thought was “whoa! love those boots!” and then I realized. “Heh. Those ARE my boots.” That’s an amazing picture of the boots. :)

It’s fantastic you are so dedicated and on routine, Sherry.
