01 July 2015

I can't believe it's July 1st already! This year is flying by. My kids have about 6 weeks left of summer break and they're already dreading going back to school. :)

I came to the realization the other day that as I've gotten older I must have gotten more comfortable with myself than I used to be and didn't even know it. When I was about 20 lbs lighter and a teenager, things I do now would have mortified me. Even going for a run in town would have been embarrassing to me. Now, if I want to throw on some shorts and a tank top and go for a run, I don't care what anyone else thinks. If I look ridiculous when I'm running who cares? At least I'm doing something. Maybe I don't have the perfect toned arms and legs for shorts and a tank top, but it's comfortable, so if anyone is bothered that's their own problem. I look at my daughter and she's about the same shape I was at her age, but doesn't seem to have a lot of the insecurities I had growing up. She does wear things out of comfort, she wears a bikini to the pool, she doesn't think she'll look silly doing things or doesn't care, and I'm so glad. I don't know why I got to thinking about these things, but it just hit me. Comfort has started winning out over negative self image. Maybe it's just some wisdom coming with age, but I'm so glad I can be a little more comfortable in my own skin now.

Well, that's about it for me today. Not much going on. I hope everyone has a great Hump Day!!

My legs were sore last night, but I still managed to get my workout in. Today I'm really going to have to push myself to get it done. I'm not feeling the best, so my brain is telling me to take a rest day, but I know I could do a workout and be fine. We'll see how I feel after work.

I think the reason I'm feeling kind of crumby today is that I've added a couple of things back into my diet. I'm going to get back to eating the things on my list of good foods and see if cutting those foods out makes me feel better. With the 5K this weekend I'd rather be a little restrictive and feel good when I run, than be miserable. We're going to be staying with my BIL and SIL too, so I don't want to feel crappy when we're visiting and playing with our nieces. We'll see how it goes, hopefully by tomorrow I'll be feeling much better.

I hope everyone has a great Tuesday!!

It's Monday again. It always comes too soon. It was a good weekend, just too short.

Friday I was going to go home and do a workout, but my hubby wanted to do something since he's not normally off on Friday evenings. So we took the kids out to eat and then took them bowling. It was fun and it was nice to do something out of the house. I did learn though that if I'm going to eat out I really need to stick to the salad. I ate a burger with no bun and some fries, because I wanted meat and the steaks and chicken were all seasoned with things I couldn't have and the salads were pathetic. Well, the next day my stomach was telling me I should have gone with a pathetic salad.

Saturday and Sunday were just busy with shopping, yard work, and house work. I managed to get a DVD workout in both those days and went for a walk Saturday and a run Sunday. My legs are telling me about it today. Our 5K is this Saturday so I probably won't run again until then because I'm afraid of hurting myself beforehand. But, I will do my DVD's and maybe do some walks too.

Not much else new today. I hope everyone has a great Monday!!

TGIF!!! Well, my son's team lost the Championship game last night, so that was a bummer, but the only lost by 1, so they can't feel too bad. Really as soon as they got their second place medals and realized someone had gotten them cookies and goodie bags, they forgot about the game altogether. We're done now for the summer with evening activities. Hooray!! Now they will just be swimming and playing with friends.

I didn't get a workout in because of the game last night. Tonight will be a DVD workout after work and tomorrow more DVD's and maybe a walk or run. Our 5K is next weekend on the 4th, and I'm not feeling super confident. It's always fun to do those races and it's for a good cause, so I'm not too worried, and all I can do is my best. When I have people running in front of me I usually can push myself harder, so that might just help. :)

Eating wise, I've been doing okay, but baseball has thrown a wrench in the works because we've had a lot of grab and go nights, so a lot of hot dogs or sandwiches. Now that that's over hopefully we'll get back into a healthier eating routine. I've been using protein powder this week because I've been craving meat, and those cravings have gone down, so I think the extra protein has helped. Next weekend will be hard because we'll be out of town so I'm going to have to prepare ahead of time for what I'm going to eat. With my diet it's easier to say no to things, but it's harder to find things I can eat. If nothing else I can run to the store and grab a salad.

I hope everyone has a great weekend!!
