21 July 2014

Wow did that weekend fly by or what?! I was super busy all weekend, which was good because it meant on my feet a lot, but I was also in a car yesterday for a lot of it and ended up eating a lot of junk, so that wasn't good. My stomach is telling me today that it's not happy that I ate so much junk. If only I could bottle this feeling for those times I'm even thinking about eating junk, just so I could remember why I need to stay away from it, life would be easier.

Saturday was up early and off shopping with my daughter. 3 or 4 hours of shopping and 1 outfit bought. Seems like a waste of time, but that's more than my daughter usually ends up with. I didn't find any good deals for myself, so nothing for me. Then we were off to my niece's birthday party, which was fun because they made carnival games for the kids to do in the back yard. After that we went home and I picked, cleaned, and canned 6 more pints of green beans. By 9 o'clock I was beat.

Sunday we went to a bridal shower out of town and left about 9:30 and got home around 6:30. After we got home I did some dishes and laundry and was too tired to think about anything else. And of course, even though I was exhausted last night, I couldn't get to sleep, so now I'm tired today too. Thank goodness I took this Friday off!

It's going to be a busy week getting ready for my hubby's family to come here this weekend. I'm hoping to get a workout in after work every day, then cross a chore off the to-do list. Friday will be my shopping day since I'm not working, that way when people get here I'll have the shopping done. We're going to have around 20 extra people in our house, so it's going to be busy. I hope that it's all fun and no drama!

I suppose I've rambled on enough for today. Have a great Monday!!

What??? How did I lose a pound? I even zeroed out my scale and reweighed because I thought it was wrong, and I feel horribly bloated today. I'll take it, but I have a feeling all the junk that I had been eating the last couple of weeks will catch up to me eventually. The human body is confusing! :)

I worked out last night, ate okay, but not much else new. I'm going to try to get a good workout in this evening and hopefully get out to the garden for a bit. Tomorrow I'm going to take my daughter for some back to school shopping, so we'll see how that goes. We're both bargain hunters, so hopefully we won't break the bank. :) There will be an auction at a house across the street and there is no room to park on our street so that could be interesting. I'm hoping my daughter and I can get out before everyone shows up. I'll probably take her out for a quick breakfast either before or during our shopping trip just so we can get out early.

I'm sleepy today, so hopefully I can stay busy and make it through work with energy left over to do a workout when I get home. I'm just happy it's Friday!!! Have a great day and a great weekend!

I'm off to a better start today. I woke up on time, made my breakfast, had my lunch ready to go, and got to work on time and I know I work my normal schedule today. Someone brought donuts in again this morning too, but I didn't take one and I don't want one. :)

After work yesterday I went for my run and got almost 3 miles in and felt so much better just getting that done. There's nothing like putting some miles behind me to make me feel like I've accomplished something. Tonight I won't go for a run, but I'll make sure to get a workout in. My legs are sore from my workouts this week, that means I've been slacking the last couple of weeks, so I need to build back up again. :)

Yesterday my hubby wanted to make S'mores because he built a new fire pit for us, so I ate crap all day and then had S'mores, but only had 1. I'm going to try to do better today, like I said I've started off better than yesterday, so I just need to keep it that way.

Have a great Thursday!

Is it Monday again? I woke up a full 30 mins late this morning. What?! I never oversleep that late, but when I realized I'd overslept I didn't rush around I just got up and slowly made my way to the bathroom to get ready. Well, my breakfast was late and my stomach was growling, so I ended up eating cereal and more than I should have. Then I get to work and there are donuts, and I didn't pack my lunch because I had no time, so now I have a donut on my desk for lunch. Ugh, I really need to get my eating under control. Oh yeah, and I forgot that I have to work later tonight, so I don't know if I'll get a workout in this evening or not. But, I'm going to push through. These little silly "problems" in my life are not big and it's one day, I'll make it through and tomorrow will be better. I am going to stay positive, even with a donut lunch. :) My hubby doesn't work tonight, so I should be able to at least do a quick workout or maybe a 30 min. run. Tonight I'm going to try to get my lunch mostly prepared for tomorrow, so even if I do sleep in I have no excuse not to grab my lunch and go. I will make small solutions for my small issues and now I can move on.

I hope everyone has a great Wednesday!!

Went for a run last night, a little less than 3 miles, but pretty close. I was only going to go for 2, but pushed myself a little further. I felt pretty good running except for my side has been hurting, so that gave me some pain toward the end, but my legs weren't killing me, so that was a good thing. I'm going to try to start running short distances a few times a week and work on building back up. My goal is to be able to run further without the hip pain, time doesn't really matter much to me right now, I'd rather be able to go further with less pain than go faster and hurt.

My headache is still hanging on, but not horrible yet, so I'm still hoping to keep it at bay. I've got too much to do to deal with the headache and I think the exercise at the end of the day helps, so I need to use that as a motivator. :)

My kids are going with my Mom to Yellowstone in a few weeks and I'm so jealous, I wish I could go with. They're excited to go, but we'll see how excited my daughter is when they are actually there and hiking. :) We took the kids to Mt. Rushmore a couple years ago and she complained about all the walking, so I hope she does better at Yellowstone. The outdoors just isn't really her thing and she's scared of everything, so I hope the animals just all stay away from her. I think my Mom's crazy though for taking 4 grandkids by herself, in a car, to Yellowstone, but I'm sure they'll have a good time.

Back to work. Have a great Tuesday!!
