I did not want to get out of bed this morning. Hopefully I'll get more peaceful sleep tonight. I had lots of crazy dreams last night that probably mean I didn't get good sleep.

I did get my workout in yesterday and I should get one in after work today too. My eating has been okay, but I keep going over my RDI. I have been eating more fruits and veggies and a lot less junk so I'm happy with that. It's mainly dinners that are the killer for me. Having a family of picky eaters makes it hard to cook anything healthy that they will eat. This week I gave my kids 2 nights of what they wanted and the other nights are going to be healthier foods and they seem a little more open to things when I'm not just pushing them into it cold turkey. Maybe I can slowly get them to eat more healthy dinners. I also need to find something else for myself to eat on pizza night or other junk food days, and tell myself it's okay if I don't eat what they're having. I know if I just don't get started eating the junk then I will have an easier time with moderation. Last night we had pizza and I stuck to the serving size I had already recorded and then ate a salad, but I really wanted more pizza, it was a struggle. But when everyone else was done, I put the leftovers away so the temptation was gone. If I wouldn't have eaten any pizza and just had a chicken salad or something I think the struggle wouldn't have been as bad. Next time we do pizza I'm going to experiment and try to eat something else and see how it goes.

I hope everyone has a great Thursday!!

What is up with all these cookies??!! There are more cookies in the office today for someone's birthday and they are my favorite from this particular place, frosted sugar cookies. Ugh. It will be another test of my will power, but I'm going to do my best to resist them yet again. Is someone testing me? Is there a hidden camera somewhere and someone is going to pop out if I grab a cookie? I've looked at them and smelled them, but that's as far as it goes. I know I can allow myself treats once in a while, but I know this weekend we're going to see some family out of town so there will probably be some junk food and eating out, and I'd way rather treat myself a little then than eat a cookie now. I have to feel like I'm in control and not eating a cookie is how I'm going to do that today. :)

I hope everyone has a great Wednesday!!

There are still cookies in the office, but they are almost gone and I resisted yesterday so I know I can resist today. I have my food all planned, so hopefully I can stick to the plan, which doesn't include cookies. We're already having an unhealthy dinner of pigs in a blanket tonight because we let the kids pick a couple of nights this week. They tend to not complain as much if we let them have a night or 2 of something they want. If I can plan it out and stick to moderation I'm sure I'll be okay.

Yesterday I was tired all day because I didn't sleep well, so no workout and I was wanting to nod off on the couch all night. I got some laundry folded after dinner, then just zoned out to the TV. I slept better last night, so hopefully I'll be ready for a workout after work, then finish up a paper for one of my classes after dinner. It would be great if I could fit a walk in too, but the paper has to come first and we'll see if I have time after that.

Not much else new today. Have a great Tuesday!!

02 October 2015

I'm down almost a pound this week, so I've done something right. I know it's my eating that has been changed the most in the last couple of weeks. I've been eating a lot more fruits and veggies during the day and if I have an evening snack it's been fruit. Next week I'm going to try to get even more veggies in with dinner. I've also been getting my workouts and/or walks in, so that helps too. Now today someone is leaving my office and he's buying pizza for everyone and someone brought cake. I don't know if I will partake because I brought my lunch, but if I do I'll keep it minimal and not go too crazy.

The fall weather is hitting us right now and I'm enjoying it. I went for a walk late last night and it was chilly, but nice. Tomorrow we're supposed to go to the pumpkin patch with my mom and my brother and his family, but it's supposed to be rainy and cold, so we'll see if we end up going. My niece has been sick, so I don't think they'll want to take her out if it's raining. I want to go look at the mums though and pick up a couple if they aren't too expensive. I need some outdoor fall d├ęcor.

Here's my mom mini-rant for the day: Last night I was stressing a bit because the dishes needed to be done and I wanted to go for a walk. Well, doing the dishes is one of my kids' chores and they were home all day and didn't do them, so I was a "mean" mom and made them do their chore and I went for my walk. I don't know why but I sometimes feel guilty making them do their chores, and I know shouldn't. It's not like they have a lot to do, just keeping their stuff picked up, taking out the trash and recycle, dishes, and taking care of their dogs. I need to remember that I don't need to stress myself by doing their chores, that isn't teaching them any responsibility. So this weekend they are doing their chores and I'm going to do some things that I have put off because I get busy doing everybody else's stuff. Time spent on their Ipads or watching TV isn't that important.

I hope everyone has a great weekend!!
