28 April 2015

It already feels like it's going to be a long day. I don't know why but time is already dragging. Maybe it's because it's going to be a nice day and I would rather be doing things outside. Hopefully I'll be able to get a run in after work.

I had to get my blood drawn this morning to check my vitamin D level. It's always low, but I've been on a supplement for about a month now so we'll see how it is. I know low vitamin D can cause achy joints, among other things, but it doesn't ever seem like taking the supplement helps me with that. Today all the joints from my hips to my toes hurt, but I'm still going to try for a run, and if I just can't, I'll walk.

I did well with my eating yesterday, so I'm hoping I can do it again today. I have been eating too many carbs so I need to get that figured out, but for now I'm concentrating on cleaning up my foods, then I'll work on balancing out my carbs, protein, and fat. As it gets warmer I'll crave things like salads and that will help me too.

I hope everyone has a great day!!

I'm back after a long, but quick, weekend. Friday I ran errands, got my hair cut, then watched my dad. I was nervous to watch my dad, but my kids and my niece were there and they were a big help. My daughter and niece actually got dinner ready, it was just frozen pizza, but we added veggies and they got everything cut up and ready, and my daughter made sure my dad had enough food and waited on him. Then after dinner the kids played Uno with him and they all had a good time with that. My dad was so tired after Uno and dessert that he wanted to go to bed, so after a trip to the bathroom, that thankfully all I had to do was get him in there and he did the rest, I helped him into bed. I really felt good to be able to help him, but it made me feel bad for him. I know after the bathroom trip and he had some struggles doing things on his own, and having me help him to bed he was feeling like a burden. Unfortunately, he's going to feel that way and no matter how much we tell him that it's fine and we don't mind helping him, he's just going to feel that, I know I would. I thought it was a good night none the less.

Saturday was my brother's wedding and it was very short. Wedding was at 3:30 and we were in the reception hall by 3:43. The wedding was at a small, cute park right next to the reception, so that was nice. I probably at too much, had a little bit of everything, but they had a lot of veggies so that was good, and I had a small piece of cake and tasted my son's cheesecake. I felt like all in all I did pretty well, but I also had 2 glasses of wine, so who knows. My hubby and I only danced to 1 song, but that was okay, there really wasn't a lot of dancing besides the kids out on the floor, but it was good music from a live band. And, my brother sang and played guitar for his new wife, which was awesome!

The rest of the weekend was lazy, just doing the normal stuff groceries and laundry. I tried to keep my snacking at a minimum and did okay. This week hopefully I'll get back on track completely with my eating and maybe be able to get some exercise in. Tonight my daughter has an orchestra concert, so no workout then, but hopefully I'll have the chance the rest of the week, and it's supposed to be nice temps so maybe some running.

I hope everyone has a great Monday!!

23 April 2015

I just have to make it through one more day of work this week and I get a 3 day weekend. Tomorrow I'm going to be busy picking up a few last minute things for my brother's wedding, he's also bringing me his dog so we can watch him while they're honeymooning, and I'm going to try to get in for a quick haircut. So there will be a lot of running around, but shouldn't be too bad. Then tomorrow evening I'm going to go eat dinner with my dad so my mom can go to rehearsal and rehearsal dinner. I'm taking my kids and my niece over too so that will probably perk him up. I always worry about being with him alone though because I'm not a caregiver and unfortunately always feel lost when it comes to things like that. Not to mention my dad and I never had a great relationship, so that doesn't help either. I think I'm most nervous about getting him to the bathroom, but I think now he can pretty much do everything himself besides get there. I'm sure things will be fine but I'm still nervous. Maybe that needs to be my motivation to workout and get stronger, so I can help lift my dad up if he falls.

Yesterday I did a little better with my eating, but still could have done better. Today hopefully will be even better since I'm feeling a little better. I actually went to the mall and walked quite a bit on my lunch break and that was good, but had me worn out. Then I did some housework and walked around the yard after dinner before I let myself sit down, because I knew if I sat I'd be done for the night. My son ended up with baseball practice instead of scouts and luckily the coach came and picked him up and dropped him off since he had to pick up equipment from my hubby.

Today, I'm just going to try to make the most of it. Maybe walk after work if it's not raining and I'm feeling good. And, I'm going to try to keep the snacks under control tonight. I feel good mentally today, so I'm going to make the most of that feeling.

Have a great Thursday!!

22 April 2015

I was going to walk yesterday but by the time I got home I wasn't feeling well and had a fever, so I just took it easy. I guess my body is telling me not to be too hard on myself and just recover first. I did fight the urge to binge on junk though. I've been getting frustrated with my hubby about an issue, nothing big, just one of those if it's my family it's and inconvenience, but for his family we'll do anything. Anyway, I was feeling kind of stressed after a small argument and wanted to eat, but I held myself to a serving of trail mix and that was it. So I had a small victory there.

Today I'm really tired and I'm not going to push exercise. I will be walking at the mall on my lunch break and window shopping, but that will be good time away from work. My son has scouts tonight, so after work will be dinner then scouts, so not much time for a workout anyway today.

I had better get my day started, even though I don't want to wake up yet. Have a great Wednesday!!
