18 April 2014

Last weigh-in for a while and I'm glad it was a good one! Down 1 lb., I'll take it! I haven't had as much time, or maybe should say made as much time, for exercise this week but I've kept my eating under control, so it must all be paying off. Maybe by the end of the no weigh-in challenge I'll be back to where I was before Christmas. I'm just going to stay on the path I'm on right now and I should get there.

After work I got my workout in yesterday and I wanted to get one in this morning, but slept in instead. My hubby was up reading for a long time last night and I usually can sleep through his lamp being on, but last night I couldn't. I don't know what was going on, but every time he turned a page I would think, "Just stop reading and shut the light off already!" Tonight is volleball practice for my daughter after I get off work, so no workout tonight. I'm going to try to get my workouts in this weekend, but it may be more of a yardwork workout, and that's okay with me.

I hope everyone has a great weekend!!

Yesterday morning I was able to wake up and workout, and I hadn't taken my stomach pill the night before, last night I took my stomach pill and this morning I didn't even know the alarm went off. I looked at the clock in time to get up and get showered and ready to go, no time for a workout. Tonight my hubby is taking my son to practice, so I think I'm going to just try to get a quick workout in after work and tell them to go ahead with dinner without me. I'm going to try no stomach pill tonight again and see if I can wake up tomorrow.

I feel like a zombie today. I'm so ready to sleep in Saturday, even if only for a little bit. My daughter's first volleyball game is Saturday morning, so not too much sleeping in, but at least I don't have to be too functional for that. I am looking forward to the weekend too because we are finally going to start on the garden! We're going to buy the stuff for my fence and hopefully my hubby will get it tilled and we can start putting the fence posts in. Yippee!! That means Spring is finally here, if only Mother Nature would get the message and stick to warmer temps.

Well, here's hoping the day goes by quickly!! Have a great Thursday!!

It's been a long day, but it's getting close to over. I ended up eating some chocolate today because I was stressed, that's how this day has been. I only had one though, so I'm not going to worry about it.

I made myself get out of bed this morning and get my workout in. I was thinking about my buddies Yolanda and Kathy who do these amazing workouts and told myself that I had to be like them. It worked and I got it done! Last night I went for a walk during my son's practice. It was only a mile, but it was nice, cold and windy, but nice. Luckily I only did a mile because they cut practice short due to the temp starting to drop, so I was just getting back when they were leaving. Tonight I'm hoping I can chase some volleyballs or something to stay moving. At least that will be an hour that I won't be just sitting watching TV.

This week is going by pretty quickly, which is good. I'm doing my job and covering for someone else who's out on vacation until next Wed, so I'll be glad when she's back. Luckily, I haven't had too much to do to fill in for her yet. Tomorrow I probably will though, but it will make the day go by quickly.

Come on weekend, I'm ready for you!! Have a great rest of your Hump Day!!

Happy Tuesday! Well, it's tax day, so it may not be so happy for everyone. :)

I didn't get up to get my workout in this morning, but I'm going to try to go for a walk during my son's baseball practice tonight. If it's nice enough and I'm feeling up to it I may do my couch to 5K, but we'll see. We found out that my daughter has volleyball practice on Wed and Fri this week, so Thursday will be the only day I can workout in the evening. If I had a membership to the Y I would go run or something during practice, oh well, I just need to get my tired booty out of bed in the mornings.

It's going to be a busy week, so hopefully that means it will be a fast one. My kids get Friday and Monday off for Easter break, I'm so jealous. Usually the kids and I go to my Aunt's house for Easter with my Mom's side of the family, but this year we're staying home, so my daughter wants to do a meal since we're missing the big family meal. I'm trying to plan for that, I'm thinking a turkey breast and mashed potatoes, salad, fruit, and my daughter is making dessert. Shouldn't be too bad, we just can't get carried away with only the 4 of us. :)

Off to start my busy day! Have a great day!!

14 April 2014

It looks like Christmas here today. I'm ready for the weather to stay warm, no more snow! It's going to be kind of crumby all week, luckily the weekend is supposed to be decent for Easter.

I didn't do the best over the weekend. Saturday I ate way over my RDI, due to Olive Garden and Dairy Queen on girls day, but I was pretty active so I don't think it did much damage. But Sunday, I was a bump on a log. It was raining, snowing, and sleeting here, so other than getting groceries and doing some laundry, I snuggled up on the couch with the dogs and did nothing. I did sleep in until 10 on Sunday, which is unheard of for me, and that actually felt pretty good.

This is going to be a hard week for me. I have to work late every day, and we've got a lot going on in the evenings, so there won't be time to workout after work most days. I'm going to try to keep my eating under control and make myself wake up early to get some workouts done. The new pills I take for my stomach make me so tired, so I'm going to try to get to bed early and maybe cut back on the pills for this week. No workout today because I tried to get up at 5 and felt dizzy and nauseated, probably because of the pills and needing more sleep, and I have a meeting after work. Tomorrow I'll try again.

The positives from the weekend: I got some yardwork done, a run in, bought a new spring top and found a dress for a wedding this summer, and I managed to at least have a slight deficit between calories in and out, so hopefully maintained.

Have a great Monday!!

Goals for the week:
Stay at/under RDI
Drink at least 70 oz. water
Have at least 80g protein every day
Exercise at least 3 days this week
Stay positive, don't let one week undo the hard work from the past month
