13 November 2014

My goal yesterday was to get some kind of exercise in last night. I'm a TV addict, so tearing myself away from it once I'm settled in is hard. Instead of one of my regular DVD's my son and I played the Kinect for a little over an hour, and I was a sweaty mess when we were done. My son and I laughed and it was a great time. He says we need to do a family game night once a week at least and I think we should too. My daughter isn't really into the video games, so we'll see if she'll get on board with that. It may not have been a super hard workout, but at least I got my butt off the couch and had some good bonding time with my son. :)

Today, I'm going to get off work earlier so I'm thinking that I'll get a quick workout in after work, then maybe more Kinect tonight. Whatever it takes to get me off the couch. I'm also going to start incorporating my bathroom workouts during work again. Eating wise, I'm going to try to stick with the plan as best as possible. My daughter made cookies last night and before I knew it I had one in my hand and was eating it. Why do I do that?! Luckily her cookies are small and she doesn't make big batches, but tonight I'm going to tell her no more cookie baking until Christmas. :)

I'm off to start a new day with renewed motivation to get healthy! Have a great Thursday!!

I've been feeling okay with myself, but still not doing well with my healthy eating and exercising. I'm trying to make changes, but it seems like every time I vow to eat healthy, something unhealthy comes up and I cave. It's that time of year and I know it, so I just need to stop making excuses. Like today, I have to work late, so I was telling myself that I won't be able to get a workout in. Why can't I get a workout in? Because there are TV shows on this evening that I want to watch. Um, no, that's not a good excuse. Sooooo... After my hubby goes to work at 7, I'm going to do a workout. I have to do a workout, my body needs it. I did a workout on Sunday and felt like I was going to throw up, and I used to be able to kick that workout's butt. The last 2 days my days and evenings have actually been filled, so no workout, but tonight, no more excuses. I'm done, I think it's takes more energy to come up with excuses than it does to work out.

I have a work Christmas party come up on December 6th, so that's my goal to get back on track. I don't have to dress fancy or anything for the party, it just seems like a good date to give myself for a goal. I'm sick of my pants being tight, and being self conscious because of it. I'm sick of feeling worn out and tired all the time. I'm sick of feeling like I don't have control over my eating, who else does??? I'm sick of coming here and saying I'm struggling, because I'm the one who controls that. I want to say I've had a win. I want to say I'm eating healthy. I want to say I'm exercising regularly. I want to be a healthy person.

I have to take control of my own life, because no one else can. I am the only person who can choose the path I take, and I want that path to be healthy and happy. That path my not be easy, but most of the good things in my life I've had to work hard for. Okay extra pounds, here's your official eviction notice, no more living on my body mooching all my energy, it's time to go away!

Let the day begin! And it's already beginning with challenges. One person brought donuts to work and another person brought an awesome pumpkin cake. The donuts went down to the kitchen, so at least they won't tempt me, but the cake is sitting on a table by my desk. I'm going to try to resist for a while, then at lunch time I'll see if I can take it downstairs to the kitchen for other people to enjoy. I know the cake is amazing because I've had it in the past, but I don't want to eat a piece today darn it! I just have to be strong until I can casually take it down to the kitchen.

Every day I keep saying that I'm going to try to do a workout and I don't get it done. Today I am going to try to get something done either when I get home or after my hubby goes to work at 7. I need to get back to those workouts! I know I'll feel so much better.

If I can stay away from the cake and donuts my eating should be okay today, so I'm really going to try hard to resist and eat better. I hope everyone has a great Thursday!!

My son is feeling better today, I'm feeling a little better today, and I'm hoping nothing else comes up and drags me down. My headache is hanging on still, but not as bad. I'm going to call the doctor and get an appointment, I need to see her anyway for annual blood work, and see if there is something more I can do to help with the headaches or prevent them.

I did okay with my eating yesterday, I didn't eat nearly as much as I have been. When I went to bed it was actually nice not feeling full, which is kind of sad, but made me realize just how bad I have been doing lately. I'm focusing right now on my eating and going to try to get exercise in when I can. This time of year it's so hard for me to be active because it's getting colder, so it's easy to snuggle up under a blanket after work. I keep trying to remind myself of my fitness goals, get stronger, leaner, healthier, but then I shiver and throw on sweats and get under a blanket. I just need to suck it up and do the workout, I won't be cold when I'm sweating my butt off. :)

Have a great hump day!

04 November 2014

Just when I think the day will be good and I can plan everything out, a wrench gets thrown in the works. My son is sick and I think he's at least got bronchitis, if not pneumonia again, so I called the doctor to make him an appointment and the only opening they have is at 230. Well, my hubby can take him to the appointment but my daughter gets out of school at 330, so I'll have to use my lunch break to go pick her up and take her home. My plan for the day was to go home for lunch and then pack a snack for the afternoon while I was there, but since I am picking my daughter up, I won't have time to go home. So now what's for lunch? What do I find to eat for lunch that isn't a ridiculous number of calories and is super quick? I need to bring a can of soup to the office so I at least have a back up for days like this. Jimmy John's delivers, maybe I can get an unwich, aha, as I'm typing this I'm forming a new plan!

Hopefully everything will go well at the doctor and my son won't be as sick as I think. If things go well then I'll be more apt to go home and exercise. It will be harder because I'm working late, but I still could get a quick work out in.

Okay time to refocus. My main focus today is my family and my child's health. Second I will focus on myself and making sure I'm fueled appropriately and doing things that are healthy for my body. I'm taking deep breaths and readjusting my plan for the day. If you can't tell I have a hard time when the plan goes awry.

Have a great day everyone!!
