I'm so glad it's FRIDAY!! I'm going to spend some time this weekend looking for a motivational book on eating right and exercise. If anyone has any suggestions please let me know. I'm super pumped right now, but I know myself and after a week or so that motivation will slow down, so I'm hoping that having something to read before bed might pump me up for the next morning. If I can make the healthy eating and exercise a habit I can stick with it.

My hubby is ready to get going too. He's been doing really well with his exercise this week, I'm so proud of him for getting started. This weekend we're going to clean any remaining junk out of the house. That will help us both, and I think it helps me to feel in control. Any leftover sweets at work, will be going in the trash this afternoon, none will come home. I have Monday off too, so that will be a good day to prep for the week too.

I've been really trying to figure out my goals this past week or so. My husband and I have a goal to run a local 10K or 2 mile run this spring, so we're really wanting to get in shape to do that. I have a goal weight on here, and that will be a marker, but one goal is that I want to be able to do my workouts with my 10 lb. weights and then move up. I want to be stronger and feel fit for our trip this summer. I know those are going to be hard tasks for me, but I am going to do my best to stay motivated.

I hope everyone has a wonderful New Year's weekend!!

Yesterday I made my meal ideas and grocery list for next week. I've got some healthy meals planned for all day and some healthy snack ideas too. I'm going to try to do my workouts in the morning, which will be hard, but I know if I just start doing it, it will get easier. I have a plan, now I just need to get started.

My hubby started yesterday with a workout, so I'm proud of him for getting started. We're both trying to eat healthy with the options we have at home. I have a plan for my lunches next week and I know he won't like what I'm making, so he'll be upset that I didn't plan for him too, but he doesn't like veggies, and I want them, so he's going to have to prep for himself if he doesn't like what I'm making. Before I tried to cater to him a bit, but now I have to do what I know I can stick with, and his needs/wants are different than mine. It will be better because we can both eat what we like. We tend to cheat if we compromise and it's something we're both not crazy about.

Well, enough from me today. Time to get busy. Have a great Wednesday!! :)

I finally weighed in this morning, and I've just gone up since Thanksgiving and it was time to make the gain official. Hopefully, with some work I will get this back down. I am going to take some measurements too because I feel like that is a better way to really know my progress.

Today will not be a great day, I was up at midnight and pretty much all through the night feeling sick to my stomach. I don't know if it's a bug, something I ate, or just eating so much junk over the last few days. Now I have to work and I'm exhausted, it's going to be a long day. I do have all of my junk food packed up for work and if it doesn't get eaten there, I'm throwing it all out.

My husband is starting this week trying to make some better choices too. Our shopping this weekend was not great because of all of the people at our house and making a quick trip, but we'll just make due this week. We have our plan for shopping next weekend and we're going to try to figure out what to make for healthy dinners and lunches. We're both ready to make a change and have a goal of our family trip in June. I will never wear a bikini, but if we're able to do activities and not get winded or just feel tired after a few minutes, I'll be happy.

I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas holiday!!

21 December 2017

Today is my Friday!! Woo Hoo! I'm excited to have the long weekend, but it will be super busy, so it won't feel like a long weekend. It will be nice to see family and celebrate Christmas, and I'm going to make sure to enjoy any downtime I get.

I know this weekend will be full of food and drinks, I'm just going to do my best to be mindful and not overfill myself and only take what I really want, and when I'm full I'm done. I'm not making as many treats as I normally do either, then maybe the crowd will eat it all before I even have a chance at it. We will have at least a couple of healthier options too, so I'll try to eat more of those and less of the unhealthy things.

Starting next week my husband is trying to get back on track and I'm going to be right there with him. I'm really battling my sinuses right now, but I think healthy eating and exercise will help push me through and just mentally make me feel better.

I probably won't be here until next week, so I hope who is celebrating has a wonderful Christmas holiday! Stay safe. :)
