09 September 2014

It's a rainy day here today. That means no run this morning, and we'll see about this afternoon. If it's not pouring I'll still try to get my run in because temperature wise it's not bad. If I can't run I've got DVD's. These are the days I wish I had a treadmill, even though I hate them.

My daughter found out yesterday at practice that she has a game tonight, so I'm going to try to make it. She also will play in a game on Wednesday and Thursday, so I'm going to try to make it to the Thursday game also. I'm glad if I get the new job that I won't start there until probably next month sometime because the kids activities will be over for the most part until December and January, and those should be things that will be in the evenings. That is one thing about my current job, the pay may be less, but you can't beat the flexibility, that's what makes it such a hard decision to leave. Sigh.

I'm going to try to stay positive today even though the weather is gloomy here. Have a great Tuesday!!

08 September 2014

Well it was a busy weekend and it's going to be a busy week, really a busy month. We moved my parents on Saturday and that was an all day ordeal. They were not ready at all, other than having the truck rented. It was just ridiculous and my dad was acting like my 12 year old daughter. At one point he had to leave because he was getting so frustrated, which was probably a good thing. My dad is just a my way or the highway person and when there are other adults moving your stuff, they're not all going to think the same way as you. Oh the frustration! And then when he yells at my mom, it makes us kids and the grandkids upset, because this is why they had gotten divorced in the first place and why I had reservations about them getting re-married. Sigh, parents.

In other news, I have a test for a new job next week. I don't have the job, but it's a step in the process. If I pass I'll get an interview. I'm scared about the prospect of a new job, but excited too. It would pay more and have more room for advancement than my job now. I would be sad to leave my job now though. I'm a little stressed about it because I need to talk to my supervisor today about it. I feel like I'm sneaking around for this job, and I think once I tell him I'll feel better, but he'll be sad, so that will make me feel bad. I don't have the job yet, so I'll just cross that bridge if/when I get there.

I've been getting exercise in, eating okay, and trying to stay positive, so things are going well. I'm going to stick with getting exercise in when I can. Today I have to pick my daughter up from volleyball practice, so I have about 15-20 mins and I'm going to go for a walk while I'm waiting. I can get at least a mile in, then I'll do the other .5 miles this evening after dinner with my dog if I can't get it done during practice. It's going to be cooler and rainy this week, so hopefully that doesn't keep me from getting my running and walking done.

Okay enough from me today, this has gone on too long. :) Have a great Monday!!

Well I'm up about 1.5 lbs, but it's to be expected and I haven't weighed in for almost 2 months. But, I'm working on it and I'm not up as high as I thought I would be. I'm going to try to be positive and keep moving forward.

Yesterday we took one of the office ladies out for lunch because it's her 60th Birthday Saturday. We ended up at Panda Express and they had none of the lower calorie items available, so I got regular stuff, but only ate about half. Then she brought in a cake and gave everyone a piece and it was delicious and I enjoyed it, and thankfully I didn't snack a lot yesterday. I should do okay today, better than yesterday with fast food and cake at least. :)

I got a workout in last night, and I'm glad I did it. I actually did it after dinner because it was a strength workout, so not a lot of jumping around or running, and I did fine (I hate working out after I eat). Today is a walk, so I'm going to try to get that done while I'm waiting for my daughter to get done with practice. Then the kids and I are going to help my mom pack, so that could burn a few calories. We're helping them move a bunch of stuff to the new house tomorrow, so the run I was planning on may be moved to Sunday.

All in all, I feel like I'm starting to get back on the right track. I'm feeling motivated to exercise and trying to make better food choices. Little by little I'll get there, but it's hard and it will take time.

I hope everyone has a great Friday and a great weekend!!

So today I have a pounding headache, my ears hurt, and I'm extremely tired. Doesn't that sound like a great time for someone to come in to the office and tell me that my tire is flat? UGH!!!! I can't win today. Deep breaths.... My wonderful hubby is going to come take my car in to get the tire fixed, and price new tires because we've had so many issues with these ones and they're almost bald. As for the head and ear aches, decongestants are on board, but not working, so if I'm feeling crumby tomorrow I'm calling the doc to see if I can either go to the ENT and have them suck out the junk that's in my ears (I know lovely picture) or get a new antibiotic. I'm sick of being in this cycle of feeling good, then bad, then good, then bad, up and down, up and down. Okay now I've ranted and I'm done with it.

Even though I'm not feeling 100% today I'm going to try to get a workout done of some sort after work. I actually have time after work, so I want to take advantage of it. I'm going to try to keep my eating in line too and hopefully with the exercise and eating better I start feeling better.

I hope everyone has a great (and healthy) Wednesday!!

02 September 2014

With the kids back in school things are getting busy again. Games are starting, scouts is going to start up, homework every night, all the other activities, and trying to keep up with the normal daily stuff. Today it begins. I have to work then off to a meeting at my daughter's school about her DC trip next year. Then I might have time to run home and make something quick to take to eat at my son's football game tonight. Then home and get everyone showered and ready for bed. Luckily today is the busiest day of the week, so I should be able to handle the rest.

I was going to get up early this morning to run, but I just didn't. I tossed and turned last night, so felt like I got no sleep. I'm just going to take today as my rest day and do my run tomorrow morning. It's supposed to be 90's here tomorrow, so I have to get it done in the a.m. Hopefully I'll be able to start getting out of bed in the early mornings. I just have to make it part of the routine.

My eating hasn't been great, but I'm trying. The bad part about having a kid who's dream is to become a baker, is that she wants to try out new recipes and bake something every week, then it's in the house staring at you and calling your name. At least for the most part she uses egg beaters and splenda, so the calories are reduced a little.

I hope everyone has a great Tuesday!!
