TGIF! I'm feeling terrible today, so it's not going to be very productive. My stomach is just not happy and I don't know why, but I don't think I'll be doing much eating today. Hopefully I'm feeling better by Monday when we're headed to the outlet mall for some school shopping.

I've got to take my little dog into the vet this afternoon because he's been having some trouble with his back again. He had surgery a few years ago and now he seems to be having some troubles again. We're hoping it's not bad enough to have to put him down, but won't know anything until we see the vet. We at least will just want to keep him comfortable if it is the worst case, but we're hoping he's still going to be around for a while.

My son has a pool party tonight and I was going to go and stay to visit with some parents, but the way my stomach is I may just walk my son over and go home. Hopefully by tonight I'll be feeling better though. My son doesn't care if I'm there because he'll be playing with his buddies and the pool is literally right out our back yard, so he can walk home when he's done. We'll see how it goes.

I'm glad it's the afternoon, but today could still be a long day. I hope everyone is having a great Friday!!

I have managed 2 times in the last week to say no to cake. What's going on?! But, the first time I did have a healthier zucchini cake that I ate and just turned down the higher calorie white cake. Today I bought a cake for a co-worker's birthday (a request from a supervisor) and it looked amazing, but I said no to eating it. I really don't want to ruin the good track I've been on with my diet. I am going to try to make a zucchini dessert though because my hubby is requesting it. I know I won't be able to resist it, so I'm going to try to make it gluten free so I can enjoy it. We'll see how it turns out. :)

No exercise yesterday because my mom came over after work to help me pick some green beans, then we visited. I'm okay with taking a night off for family time. Today though I'm going to try to get something done when I get home. I'm having some weird pain in my abdomen though and I don't know for sure what it is, so we'll see where I'm at with that before I push myself too hard, but I'll at least do a walk. I don't think the pain is anything major, just probably some lingering issues from last week.

Tomorrow is Friday!! I'm so ready to get to the weekend.

I hope everyone is having a great Thursday!!

We've been trying to get some things sorted out for the vacation we're taking next year and it's been really motivating me to get my workouts in. I really want to do some water activities and one of them could be getting off a boat and snorkeling. Crazy as it may be, I don't want to be the wimpy girl who can't get back on the boat. So, my motivation is not only to fit into my bathing suit next summer, but I want to be fit enough to go snorkeling and then get myself back on the boat. The stamina and fitness aspect are really what are motivating me. It's funny though because a few years ago, the looking good in my bathing suit would have been my biggest motivator, now I just want to be able to keep up. :) Vacation is a long way off, but it's still motivating.

I'm getting my eating back on track too. I need to do my planning for next weeks lunches though because this week I'm struggling with the protein. I have to get some good protein sources and make things ahead. I'm taking Monday and Tuesday off next week, so that will help a little because I've got plenty of time to prep and only have a few days of work to worry about. I'm going to buy more fruit today on my lunch break too because my kids have eaten all the fruit I bought over the weekend. I ate some, but they've eaten most of it. Better that than some other things I guess.

I hope everyone has a great Wednesday!

Last week sucked. There I've said it, it's done, now I need to work on what I can do to recover this week. I was hit hard with pain and symptoms from endometriosis and TOM, so much so that I actually stayed home from work for a couple of days. I am going to be more strict with my diet this week and try to incorporate more fresh fruits and veggies and less processed, pre-packaged stuff. I've been eating a lot of things like gluten free pretzels to help ease some nausea I've been having, so easy snacks like that I'm allowing, but in moderation. I'm still recovering today, but feeling better mentally, so time to put the positive thinking to work.

While I was not feeling well I was trying to keep myself going by making a couple of goals for myself. One is that I want to tone up and lose a little so that I can get one of my 2 tattoos darkened and also get a new tattoo. The other is to exercise throughout the year so that I have the stamina and energy to make it through our vacation to FL next summer. I would love to do some fun water activities at the beach, and I know if I'm feeling stronger I'll be more apt to do them. These are both goals for within the next year, so a long ways off, but that just means that I need to keep them in mind when I feel like I want to give up. I have some pictures of tattoos that I like and my hubby and I are working on what we want to do when we go on vacation, so I think that will make it easier to envision those goals. And I'm going to set monthly and weekly goals for myself again.

So far my monthly goals for August (since we're almost there) are going to be to do at least 4 workouts per week so 16 out of 31 days I should get a workout in and 25 days out of the 31 I will stay at or under my RDI.

My weekly goals for this week are to be more strict with the low FODMAP diet again, exercise 4 days for at least 30 mins per day, get at least 3 servings of veggies per day, and make a meal plan for next week with my low FODMAP requirements.

Hopefully I can meet all of my goals and then some. Have a great day!!
