Exercising and Eavesdropping on Christmas Eve

You know it's Christmas Eve when I'm at the gym at the crack of dawn, observing other exercisers saying to each other, "I'm not going to gain a single pound between now and New Year's Day!"

I was just reading an article about the trend toward fat marathon runners and how every pound you gain slows down your time. Eek! That does NOT need to be me, but the pumpkin pie in the kitchen looks SO good.

Come to think of it, my scale is totally on the fritz. Yesterday it said I weighed 126 pounds and the day before it said I weighed 157. Clearly, it needs a new battery once more, so how would I even know if I've even gained a single pound? Heh-heh!

Alas, I have to press pause on my maniacal laughter because the Wii Fit measures your weight if you want it to, so there's no way for me to get around the TRUTH! Just like there's no way to get around the truth that I suck at the Pushup Challenge on there and I still can't hula hoop to save my life.

If you want to try your hand at the Pushup Challenge and kick butt at hula hooping too, enter my Wii & Wii Fit Giveaway! It ends in FOUR days so don't delay!

Now I'm headed out the door again because I still need to go to the Apple Store to pick up my new iPod. Plus, I can't resist going out and observing all the last minute craziness. I wonder if this Christmas Eve will be as off the hook as last year? Last year was serious eavesdropping/observational overload!

If I hear/see anything "interesting", I'll be sure to come back and give you an update.

Essentially, that means most likely be posting again today because there's always something interesting going on in Los Angeles, especially on Christmas Eve. If not, be safe and enjoy your Christmas Eve.

In my book, the week between Christms and New Year's is not one for dieting. Bring on the Christmas cookies!

Cookies, peanut brittle, italian soda, pumpkin pie, sweet potato pie... good grief, I did an EXTRA long workout today to try to compensate. Whew! Still wish I was at your house eating though! :)

Haha! Well, if you're doing all that munching, you just have to accept that you're gonna weigh 4 or 5 pounds more at the end of the week.

I hear you! I'm not a big dieter but if I don't still watch what I eat and exercise a ton, I will put on weight just by looking at food. And if I gain any weight, that's gonna make my 24 mile run in a week that much harder. :(

It was all just folks complaining! Got on my dang nerves! I sure did enjoy that pie... and that scale is a headache. The batteries do NOT last!

I would share but it was all, "I don't want a blue iPod, I want the green one!" Yawn. Happy Holidays to you too.

You too! Be well! :)
