Well, it's been about a month since I weighed in last and I'm up about 1.5 pounds or so, but it's no surprise since I've been eating horribly and not getting as much exercise. Now it's time to get back on track before that 1.5 up turns into 5 then 10.

Yesterday after work I went for a run, which I haven't done since Friday and it was a good workout, but I only made it a little over 2 miles. Once my hip started hurting I quit and now today I'm not sore and limping around, so I think I made the right choice. Tonight the kids have friends staying the night, so they will have taken over the house when I get home, so no workout, but I'm going to try to get one in both days this weekend.

Eating wise I'm going to try to get back on track in the next couple of weeks. Today I'm going to try to stick with only foods that I already have planned and hopefully I'll get to the store tomorrow to buy some healthy things for next week. I've been so tired lately and I know some of that comes from eating crap. Time for a change!

Have a great Friday and a great weekend!!

Wow, I haven't been on here and journaled for a week! Needless to say I'm not doing well, it seems like any time I leave the site for a while I start slipping. I was hit hard with TOM last week and this week have had a horrible summer cold. Now I'm starting to feel better so it's time to get back to it.

I did my 5K last Friday and did it at a slow 35 mins, but I crossed the finish line and didn't walk, so I'm happy with that. My goal was to run the whole thing and I did it. Then I didn't do a workout until Tuesday. I was feeling horrible through the weekend and then just exhausted after work on Monday, so I took a few days of break. Now I'm trying to get back to it, but the cold is hanging on and making the workouts harder.

My eating has been TERRIBLE! I was having horrible chocolate cravings last week and unfortunately gave into them, and they've hung on into this week, so I'm trying to get a grip on my eating. I've been hungry for bland foods other than chocolate this week, but I want to just munch all the time. I have to get myself back on my schedule and in to the routine again, but it's hard after a couple of weeks of bad eating. Every day I wake up is a chance to do better, so I just have to keep working at it. Hopefully I can get back on track in the next couple of weeks.

Have a great day!!

Today is my last day of work for the week, woo hoo! After work I have to pack quickly then we're off to my BIL & SIL's house. We were going to wait and go early tomorrow, but they want us to go tonight to watch a firworks show with them. I'm not a huge fireworks person and neither is my daughter, but my hubby and son are, so we're going for them.

Tomorrow morning is the 5K. I'm sure I'll be nervous about it when we get there, but I'm just going to do my best and not worry about how fast everyone else is going. The bad thing is that I had a plan for the morning before the 5K for breakfast and a stretching DVD, but now that we'll be away from home my plans have changed. I'm going to go buy a good breakfast bar for tomorrow morning and I'll just do a good stretching routine without the DVD tomorrow before the race. I'm trying to roll with the punches. :) My poor hubby has now gotten roped into going over before the 5K to his step-brother's dad's house to help them with some concrete work. I just hope they get everything done before we have to be at the 5K.

My eating this week has just been terrible, but I'm attributing the chocolate cravings to TOM and hopefully I'll be able to do better today. I keep saying that this week and keep eating the chocolate. Well, today my stomach is not feeling well, so I'm hoping that it helps me stay away from junk. I'm sure part of not feeling well is all of the junk I've been eating.

Have a great weekend and a happy 4th!!

So I've been off the wagon lately. Last week I was sick and that has lead to some poor eating choices and no exercise. I think TOM is hitting me now too, so it's making it even harder to make good eating choices because I'm craving junk, especially chocolate. Great timing with the 5K Friday morning... I'll just have to push through and make myself get some exercise in. Last night I wanted to find an excuse not to work out, but I got home, put my workout clothes on and did it anyway. I felt better mentally after I was done. Tonight I'm going to try to remember that feeling and get a short workout in when I get home. I'd like to run, but I know if I do my knees and hips will still hurt and make running harder Friday morning. At least doing a DVD still gets my heart pumping, just not much exciting scenery. :)

I hope everyone is having a great Wednesday!!

TF HIIT 25 = 2 miles = 73 to go

27 June 2014

So, I was hoping I could run today, but the gloom has set in and between the rain and humidity there will be no run. I will have to pull out a DVD after work and get a workout done. I'm feeling the guilt of not exercising and I know I'll feel amazing once I get it done.

I'm not craving junk today either, so I must be finally getting back to normal. Hopefully I'll be able to control my eating the rest of the day, so far so good. Tomorrow we're headed to a wedding a couple of hours away, so I know my eating won't be the best, but I'll do my best. I'll try to get up and dance a little, that should help work some calories off. :)

In non-eating/weight related news, I'm completely consumed by the Divergent book series. I'm on the second book now and it's just sucked me in. My daughter read the first one for school, so I read it when she was done to see what it was all about. I feel silly reading a teen series, but I can't help it, I love it. What else would I expect I guess, I like the Hunger Games and Twilight series too. :)

TGIF and have a great weekened everyone!!
