20 October 2014

I keep saying that I'm going to get back on track, and then I just don't. I need to figure out how to get going again. I bought myself some good foods for the week and I'm hoping I can stick with eating well and exercising, but it seems like I get busy, then push the exercise and eating well to the side. Just because I'm busy doesn't mean I need to eat a candy bar or cookies or go out for fast food. Stress doesn't have to make me lose control. I need to take the control back!

Here's the plan for the week: stick to eating what I bring to work, only eat one helping of dinner, no crazy night time snacking, and exercise at least 3 days a week for at least 30 mins. That plan isn't hard, I've done it before. My pants are all getting tight, so it's time to make a change because I refuse to have to buy bigger pants! I'm in a challenge that you are supposed to weigh every day, so I think I'll start doing that tomorrow. I'm so scared of what the scale will say, but I need the reality check.

I hope everyone is doing well and staying on track!!

I did a 30 minute workout last night and it kicked my butt! Wow, I'm out of shape! I haven't done a workout in probably about a month and I can tell. That workout would have been nothing a few months ago when I was exercising at least 3 times per week, but now it hurt. I guess that means I really need to get back to it. Hopefully I'll have time to get a quick workout in tonight too.

Yesterday some evil person brought cookies into the office. Cookies! I had everything planned out, then the cookies showed up and I caved. I have no will power when it comes to sweets. Today, there are no cookies in sight, so hopefully I can stick to the plan. I need to just get back into the healthy eating routine and then it's easier to resist those devilish things that are brought into the office.

I hope everyone is having a great week!

I went to the doc on Friday and found out I have ear infection, so I'm glad I went. Hopefully the week long course of antibiotics will kick this bug out once and for all. If not, I'm heading straight to the ear, nose, and throat doctor instead of my regular doctor. I still get pretty tired once I'm up and going for a bit, but I'm feeling better.

I've been eating horribly, so this week I really need to work on it. I keep saying that I need to eat better, so now's the time for action. My hubby has been on a good healthy eating kick, so that should help me too. I know if I eat better it will help me feel better, so that should be all the motivation I need, but for some reason I forget that and go for the chocolate, or other junk.

Exercise has been nonexistent too. Today I'm going to try to do a short workout or walk after work. This week will be a more normal week, so I'm going to try for at least 3 days of exercise after work. It's so easy to get out of the routine, and so hard to get back into it. I know my body image is so much better when I'm exercising, even if I'm not losing, so that should be motivation enough.

Here's to starting a new week with a good attitude and a renewed motivation! I hope everyone has a great Monday!!

30 September 2014

It's been over a week since I last journaled!! For shame! I was so busy last week with training a new person and with the kids activities that I just didn't feel like I had an extra minute. Yesterday I was out sick and I just felt off, and still feel weird today. My stomach has been crampy for about a month and I think after a week of training and eating lunch out all week my stomach is rebelling. I'm going to try to do things healthy this week and see if that helps. I am going to try to get back into some exercise too as I have time. My stomach sometimes cramps so bad when I do things, even moving to sit down, so I haven't braved exercise for a week or so. I'm getting my eating back on track first, then the exercise.

I haven't heard anything on the other job yet, but have a feeling they would have called already if they were going to offer it to me, so I'm waiting for that letter thanking me for applying, but they offered the job to someone else. I'm not sad over it though because I enjoy my job, and I just think it wasn't meant to be. Oh well, life goes on.

I hope everyone is having a great day!!

22 September 2014

Today's the day of my interview. I'm getting nervous as it gets closer. I should have chosen a morning time, then I'd be done already, but I was thinking then I could have a short day instead. Silly me. I talked to my supervisor and he's supporting me in whatever I choose to do, which is nice. He understands the pay issue and if he could give me a raise I know he would. It will make that blow if I don't get the job so much easier to take knowing I have a great place to work already.

This morning I made myself a "green" smoothie, but it was more like a brown smoothie. Other than the repulsive color it was good. I think I need to add more spinach and kale and less berries to make it really green, not to mention I need a blender that can really liquify everything. I just have a single cup blender and it's on it's last leg I think. I'm going to keep trying to incorporate the smoothies though because they are such an easy way to get some fruits and veggies in. I'll have to find some other fruits and veggies to add too.

Exercise wise, I haven't done anything in like 2 weeks. We've been so busy after I get off work, that I just haven't had time or energy. This week will be a little better, so I should be able to get a workout in after work at least a few days. Something short is better than nothing, so I'm going to try to get going again and I need to restart my running program.

I hope everyone has a great Monday!
