I'm still struggling this week to figure out how to stop eating junk and get back to exercising. I'll do well eating, then exercise, then eat junk, or do well eating then no exercise, or I'll just eat junk and not exercise. I just can't seem to find a good routine. I'm still trying though, I'm not ever going to give up, I may feel like giving up sometimes, but I haven't completely given up yet. I haven't weighed yet, but I know I've gained from my last weigh in, which was already at the upper end of my weight in a long time. I need to weigh myself and record it so I have a starting point. I know it will be bad, but I have to do it.

Today, I have meals/snacks planned for work, not sure what's for dinner but I'm going to try to do well. I'm going to get a workout in after work also. My hubby works a day shift today, so I should be able to workout without having to worry about dinner being ready early for him. I'm struggling to figure out which workouts to do right now too. I need to make myself a calendar so I don't have to think, I can just do. That worked last year, so maybe that's what I need to do now. I'm going to start my couch to 5K back up this weekend since it's supposed to be nice, I think that will help to, just having that goal.

My hubby was complaining to me last night about gaining weight and being out of shape. He is really wanting to do better, I know because he actually ate an apple for a snack last night, that is unheard of for him. The good thing is that he's motivated, so I can try to make healthier dinners and have his support, instead of complaints. Having both of us actually trying to do better will make a big difference.

I hope everyone has a great Wednesday!!

I don't know about anyone else, but my weekend flew by! Friday after work I chaperoned the middle school dance which went fine. It was kind of a long 3 hours, but there were a couple of other moms who didn't know people, so we watched some doors together and talked a little. The kids had a good time, so that's all that matters. Then Saturday I was tired, and really didn't feel like I did much, but I mindlessly made it through the day making cupcakes and bread, and doing laundry. Sunday was grocery shopping and laundry, and we went to my parents house for lunch to see my dad. He was happy to be in his own house. He hasn't been home since Thanksgiving, so he missed everything and hadn't seen their kitchen since it's been remodeled. He only got to spend a few hours and I know he was sad to leave, but I think it gave him some good motivation to work hard to get back home.

I'm trying to keep doing good things, and didn't do well over the weekend with that. Saturday I really didn't eat horribly, but didn't exercise, then Sunday I ate too much and didn't exercise. This week I'm going to try to eat well and exercise at least 3 days. The end of the week is supossed to be in the 50's here, so hopefully I'll be able to go for a walk and/or run outside a couple of those days. It's going to be a busy weekend again and more food, but I'm hoping I can combat that through the week of eating right and exercise. I forgot one of my snacks today though, so I'm already starting out with a struggle, but I'll figure something out.

Have a great Monday!

Tonight I'm chaperoning a middle school dance that is a fundraiser for the kids' DC trip this summer. I'm okay with the chaperone thing, it's only 3 hours and I don't have a life, so what else was I going to do? :) The worst part is that it seems like all the other parents are friends because they grew up together or have spouses that work together and I'm not part of that group, so it could be a long 3 hours. My daughter won't want anything to do with me either because she's too cool to acknowledge my presence, but hopefully she'll forget I'm there and have some fun socializing with her friends. I enjoy watching my kids laugh and have fun with other kids, it just makes me feel good.

On Sunday my dad gets to come home for a few hours, so that will be nice. My mom and brother are going to pick him up, and I'm going to make lunch for when they get home. I think we're having a turkey breast, potatoes, homemade bread, and probably veggies of some sort. My daughter is making cupcakes for my dad, so those won't be very good for me, but I'm going to make an effort to get workouts in this weekend, so hopefully that will combat some calories. The good thing about cupcakes instead of a full cake is that they're already portioned out so I can't cut myself a large piece. :)

I hope everyone has a great weekend!!

I did well yesterday and have my plan set for today, so hopefully there won't be any surprises. I ate pretty well yesterday so I'm proud of myself for that. When I told my hubby that we were having pork chops with only fruit and veggies he didn't say a word. He really wants to get back on the eating right wagon too, so he's glad when I make him eat healthier. :) Tonight will be more of the same. Chicken with veggies, salad, and fruit. I think when my hubby works he doesn't mind eating simply because he's not home thinking about grabbing something else during the night at home. We'll see how it goes and if we can keep it up. We've done this before, but then end up caving and starting to eat junk again when we're busy. Hopefully we don't slip into our old bad habits, or we're able to get ourselves out of it when we do slip.

Last night I didn't want to do a workout, I was all snuggled on the couch with the dogs, my son and I had read a chapter in his book for school, we went through homework, and I just didn't want to move. Well, I made myself get up and do something. I did a workout from an app so that I could even still watch TV, which makes it seem like cheating, and my son even did most of the workout with me. It wasn't a super hard workout but it felt good to do it and be off the couch. Then I got showered and got my lunch ready for today. So, it was a good night and I got a lot done.

Today will hopefully be more of the same. I'm feeling good today, I have my plan set, and I have no reason not to succeed. I hope everyone else is having a good day!

25 February 2015

So I've been slacking lately. I haven't been recording food, I know I'm eating horribly, and I haven't been exercising. I keep trying to jump on the wagon and may grab on for a couple of days, then fall right back off again. I will take any excuse to eat poorly and lay around. I started getting flu like symptoms before Valentine's so I did poorly then and just kind of ate when I felt like it and just whatever sounded good. Then I felt better for a couple of days and the symptoms that my doc thinks could be from endometriosis came back. So I haven't felt much like doing anything. Today I'm starting to feel more like myself, so I'm hoping that I can make good decisions and get myself to workout. I've now started BC pils that hopefully will keep me from having those symptoms every month, but really I won't know until next month. I've been journaling my symptoms and looked back at my calendar from last month and around the same time I had the exact same thing going on, so it seems like I'm on to something, now I just need to fix it if possible.

I have this woman inside of me that wants to kick butt and eat right, but the other woman who is tired, doesn't feel good, and just wants to lay around and eat crap is winning right now. I have a goal to be feeling good by the end of April for my brother's wedding. I want to be able to go and have a good time and not feel like crap that weekend. I want to fit into the dress I have for it and not have to buy a new one. I just want to be healthy so I can enjoy it.

I'm really hoping these pills help me with the symptoms. If so, I should be able to get a good routine going and not get sidelined every couple of weeks with feeling nauseated, exhausted, and just downright yucky. It's discouraging to feel good, be eating well, get some exercise in, then to do a 180 and feel worn down and sick and crave comfort food. I'm thinking about buying a new DVD workout series to maybe boost my motivation. I love starting a new series and having that feeling of promise. It could be another month before the temps warm up and I start running outside, so I need to do something in the meantime. I have some DVD series right now, but I think because I know what's coming it's easy to say, I don't really like that workout and skip a day, then that leads to skipping 2 days, and so on and so forth. Well, I suppose it's time to start doing and stop talking, and turn the I wants into I wills.

I hope everyone has a great day!
