It Cancels Out (Right!?)

Happy Hump Day! Only two more days until the weekend-well maybe one and a half since Friday afternoon is when my brain goes off. (Okay, okay Mom, more off than normal.)

Today was one of those days where I really wanted a cheeseburger and fries and nothing else sounded appetizing....please tell me you have these days too. Unfortunately, I did not have a cheeseburger packed for lunch...I had salad.

Not a Cheeseburger
Once you're craving something hot and bad for you, nothing sounds less appealing than something cold and good for you. So I ate about a third of my salad and gave up.

Luckily we had a workout planned and afterward the gym I was able to convince the Hubster we needed a cheeseburger for dinner-with fries too of course! We are doing simple burgers at home, with some baked French fries. YUM! Dinner is cooking as I type this up....can't wait! It may not be the Five Guys burger with Cajun fries-and if we're honest the trip to White Lime after-but it will be A LOT healthier and will hopefully get rid of this craving!

Since today was an arm day-biceps and triceps-I figure the calories I burned doing that and the extra ten minutes of cardio cancels out the extra calories from eating an "unhealthy" dinner. Right? Who's with me on this logic/justification?

In case you're curious, here is our typical arm workout:

I usually do about 50-60 pounds on tricep exercises, except for the extensions, in which I do about 20-25 pounds. For biceps I do about 30 the arm in the above picture is obviously mine. (Just a little sarcasm for your Wednesday night.)

That about wraps this up....oh and in case you need to know what I wore to work...

I took this pic and sent it to my Mama-san to show her I was wearing the shirt she bought me when she was out. I miss when my mom would buy me all my clothes.....Mom-can we go back to this arrangement?


1. Do you try to justify your meals if it isn't the most healthy choice?

2. Do you workout arms? If so, what exercises am I missing?
