16 July 2015

I think it's time to restart my diet. I've been trying some new things, and today I'm feeling nauseated. I've been more lax about what I've been trying too, so I need to get back to basics for a week or so and start feeling better again. Really I don't think it's the fruits and veggies so much that give me the problems, it's anything greasy, so I just need to go back to eating my fresh foods.

Tuesday night I started getting an earache and it's sticking around. It's more like my lymph node is swollen and every time I swallow my ear hurts, so I know I'm not really sick, I just need to get over this. It's amazing that I start getting lazy with my eating and now I feel like I'm getting sick. Hopefully with some clean low FODMAP eating I'll feel better.

Today I'm only working a partial day because my hubby and son leave for a boy scout trip and I'm dropping them off. I took tomorrow off too so I can spend the day with my daughter. She wants to go shopping, so hopefully we find some good deals on school clothes. Then tomorrow night we're going bowling with my SIL and niece, so it should be a fun day. I just hope this ear pain goes away by then.

I may not be on here for the next couple of days, so I hope everyone has a great rest of the week!!

14 July 2015

I've been so busy lately! I'm trying to get back on track with everything and hopefully this week I will. My eating has been what's getting me. I've stuck with my diet, but have tried a few new things. I'm still not being too adventurous because I don't want to completely fall off track and feel like crap. With that being said, even though I'm on this somewhat strict diet I can still find ways to eat crap. I've been craving salt like crazy so then I eat corn tortilla chips or plain potato chips, or I'll want something sweet so I'll whip up a batch of flourless cookies then eat way too many. I think I'll always struggle with my eating, I've just had bad habits for way too long.

My exercise has been good, but last week I had a lot of late nights at work, so then took a couple of extra days off. I've been doing my T25 workout DVD's and sometimes I'll also go for a walk in the evenings between 1 and 2 1/2 miles. I figure if I keep this type of activity up that by next summer I'll be much more fit. Results may not come instantly, but if I stick with it I'll be much healthier physically and mentally.

I hope everyone has been doing well and has a great day!!

This morning I woke up feeling yucky, and I think it's the hazy smoke in the air here. We're getting smoke from the Canadian wildfires and it's messing with my allergies. I feel so bad for anyone there who's dealing with the actual fires. Hopefully an allergy pill and some work will make me feel better. :)

I got my workout and a walk in last night. Tonight I may not walk if it's smoky because of how crumby I feel today and I need to get to bed early tonight. Tomorrow I have to be on the road by 6 and won't be home until around 7 or 7:30, so probably no workout, but maybe a walk late.

My eating is okay, but today is going to be a carby day. Feeling crumby made me not really want anything but bland foods, so I had cereal for breakfast and I'll have a PB&J for lunch. Hopefully by tomorrow I'll be back to salads, I'll be out of town for lunch, but I'm sure I can find something healthy.

I hope everyone has a great Tuesday and Wednesday!!

I completed a 5K on Saturday. I was a couple of minutes slower this year than I was at the same one last year, but I did walk a little this year. My main goal was to finish and I did. Now, I really want to sign up for a color run or glow run this year, we'll see if I can find one nearby.

The weekend overall was good. We saw our nieces that we don't get to see very often and played with them, and visited with the rest of my hubby's family. My kids are the oldest so they have fun playing with the little kids. I stayed on track with my diet over the weekend, I did partake in a few adult beverages. I researched what I could have before we went so I was prepared, but I think the adult beverages are just going to go away, not that I had very many, but my stomach is telling me about it now and that's the only different thing I had. I'm glad to be getting back to my normal routine with food this week, hopefully my stomach will settle back down.

Well, I'd better get to work and get some things done. It's going to be one of those crazy weeks, so I just have to jump in and get it started. :) Have a great Monday!!

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!!
