So...my workout will have to be tonight. I have to get it done tonight. My anxiety must be pretty high because this morning, while I was oil pulling and such, I was cleaning up like a mad woman. Usually, I only go into those fits when my anxiety goes up. So yeah...and I am supposed to do Yoga X and there is no way I can get it done and be on time to pick up my mom and go to my part time job. So yeah...this time my sister said she would do it with me because she likes doing yoga. I am also really excited and totally support her next decisions.

She told me she is contemplating doing Jillian Michael's 30 day shred AND joining this absolutely wonderful site!! I am pretty excited about it since she needs a lot of support. I just want her to be confident and love herself. So since I have that workout, I am going to encourage her to get it done. I even went as far as saying that if she did it in the evening and it would help motivate her, I will do it with her. No, I am not giving up on the P90X. I am still going to be doing that just in the morning lol! Man...that will be killer. She is worth it though. :)

Daily Summary
*Oil Pulling: So my mom started oil pulling yesterday. She told me she had a hard time going to the full 20 minutes but forced herself to. When she brushed her teeth though I had to laugh because she told me that her toothpaste combined with the taste of the coconut oil did not mix well and left a funky taste in her mouth lol! She did remark on how her teeth felt really clean still and it was like 3 pm.

So today has been a bit rough. Allergies are going crazy but hey, I am still up at 730 am. I am trying to get up around 630 am so I can get more stuff done in a day but I slept terribly last night. My eating wasn't great yesterday but it wasn't so bad that I overate. Not happy about it...and sadly...I never got my workout in. And that is my problem. When I tell myself that I will workout in the evening, it never happens but I can get it done in the morning. Kind of weird so I will try to get them done in the morning, hence the waking up early.

My motivation has only dipped a bit because of my allergies...it makes things very difficult but I have to push through...I have to continue on working out so I can drop this excess weight and be healthy! So because I had my "rest day" early, it means I have to make sure to workout on Saturday (which is normally my rest day).

Well, I suppose it's on to getting my day going.

So my motivation is still there but I am having a real hard time. I have discovered that I have allergy induced pink eye and my left eye just hurts and is swollen and just ugh! Soooo not fun. Good thing is that it isn't contagious though. And to those who didn't know this...I didn't either until today that allergies could cause pink eye. ><
So, due to the pain in my eye, I have been pushing off my workout this morning. I took an allergy pill and I am going to my sister's to get some eyedrops in hopes that it will help ease the itching at least. I will workout tonight though. I have to. :)

Daily Summary
*Oil Pulling: So I did manage to get this done at least on time! Lol!

Woke up just as motivated today even though there were a few hitches. Firstly...I need some allergy eyedrops badly!! My left eye has been sooooooo itchy...and walking around with a red eye is not that fun lol! Anyhow, today was my oldest daughter's first day of school. She's a 4th grader...and I was crushed when she didn't want to give me a hug and kiss like she used to always do. :( Oh well...she will always be my baby even when she has grown up and has babies of her own. That's just the way it works. :3

So, after finding out who her teacher is and where her class was (should have done that friday but my car broke down so it was a no go), she went to eat breakfast. I can't believe that she is going to be 9 in October. Time is flying by...shit Piper is turning 1 on the 8th of August!! @_@
After that, I dropped off some important papers and came home to start my normal routine. Pretty upbeat and positive...maybe it's because I am back to working out every morning... :)

Daily Summary
*Oil Pulling: So Kait had to skip her oil pulling this morning just because we had to get to the school early enough to find out where her classroom is and who her teacher is. I got mine in...the bf did his along with my sister and her bf. I am very happy about the progress that has been made with my teeth.

*P90X: I still find Plyometrics to be very difficult but at the same time, today...I was able to jump a little higher on certain moves so that is very promising for me. I was surprised that I could. I am still doing them at low impact because I need to protect my knees but as time goes by maybe I will be able to fully do each move. The outlook is very promising.

27 July 2014

So I am starting over today. I am going to take starting pictures along with my measurements so I can help track my progress. Measurements will be done weekly and pictures will be monthly. I have changed over my diet plan to the same as Draglist which fits nicely with the calorie counting anyhow which I am still doing. Thanks to him and the simulation that I learned about from his information, I have discovered how many calories should actually be consumed and all that lovely stuff. He is a great resource! I am pretty determined to complete this program and I think a reset is honestly what I truly need to rediscover my motivation and such. It is a pleasant side effect though I am doing it with the hopes that my youngest sister will join me and start to build up her confidence and self-esteem. :)

There are a lot of changes that I am going to be working on so hopefully this time, I won't fall off of the motivation train. Then again, I have found that FS has such wonderful people here and they are all very supportive. Alright...enough babbling from me. Off to start my day!! :D

Daily Summary
*Oil Pulling: Oil pulling was completed today while I prepped for today. I have gotten my younger sister and her bf into the oil pulling as well! Now over time, they will see the benefits that come from this practice. OH! On a side note...my receding gum is almost completely healed!! I am soooooo excited about that!

*P90X: Today, since I started over was Chest and Back and the Ab Ripper X. Even though the Chest, Shoulders and Triceps was harder in terms of what exercises you did, I am pushing myself harder than I did the first time around and I have heavier weights so...kicking my own butt by pushing myself! :)
