Embodying the true spirit of "absolut(ly) fit"

I am drunk and walking on the treadmill as I type this.

I tried picking it up to a fast run so I would get done sooner (7:04 pace) and only lasted about 3.5 minutes. I love wine but it is not good for the treadmill. Especially since the whole time I am thinking about ordering cheeesecake from room service. Bad bad bad. I already had dessert tonight, but it was small and I shared. Still, I also had a glass of dessert wine (sauternes – mmmm) so that is extra calories to burn off.

Also, Topher – my lunch break goes extra fast because it is actually only a few minutes long, just enough for me to call and order food for the team while we keep working. Sucks. Though it does make me like your idea of only staying on the treadmill as long as my lunch break…

I’m only at 1.65 miles and I just want to fall into bed. However, I am determined to get past the bargaining phase of “if I go to bed now I will get up tomorrow and do the 3 miles I have left PLUS whatever I have planned for tomorrow.” It’s too bad I dont’ have a marathon plan, because right now my bargaining idea is pretty convincing since I don’t have a plan for tomorrow.

2.5 miles while drunk is a reasonable amount, right guys? Right? Come on, back me up on this one…


  1. I found your blog through Pigtails Flying…I love it! I’ve been losing weight with Weight Watchers and running for about a year and a half. One of the 8 “healthy guidelines” of the WW program is “limit alcohol intake.” Well, that is one area where I completely fail. I’ve lost 60-ish pounds despite my three-beer Saturday lunches, post-work cocktails, and half-bottle-of-wine weeknight dinners so clearly I’m doing something right. They can have my bottle of Ketel One when they pry it from my cold, dead hands…

  2. The problem was not the wine, it was the treadmill. I don’t know how you deal with those things. Ick! I’d 2.5 miles is plenty!

  3. you are too funny! Well congrats on not just going straight to bed.

  4. whatever you’re comfortable with….

  5. I’m impressed that you can type while on the treadmill. If I tried that sober I would be in a ball flying off the end of the treadmill.

  6. *tee hee* Thanks for the little giggle. Guilty pleasures :-)

  7. We got you back girl!

    Look at you gettin’ it done!
