I don't know about anyone else, but my weekend flew by! Friday after work I chaperoned the middle school dance which went fine. It was kind of a long 3 hours, but there were a couple of other moms who didn't know people, so we watched some doors together and talked a little. The kids had a good time, so that's all that matters. Then Saturday I was tired, and really didn't feel like I did much, but I mindlessly made it through the day making cupcakes and bread, and doing laundry. Sunday was grocery shopping and laundry, and we went to my parents house for lunch to see my dad. He was happy to be in his own house. He hasn't been home since Thanksgiving, so he missed everything and hadn't seen their kitchen since it's been remodeled. He only got to spend a few hours and I know he was sad to leave, but I think it gave him some good motivation to work hard to get back home.

I'm trying to keep doing good things, and didn't do well over the weekend with that. Saturday I really didn't eat horribly, but didn't exercise, then Sunday I ate too much and didn't exercise. This week I'm going to try to eat well and exercise at least 3 days. The end of the week is supossed to be in the 50's here, so hopefully I'll be able to go for a walk and/or run outside a couple of those days. It's going to be a busy weekend again and more food, but I'm hoping I can combat that through the week of eating right and exercise. I forgot one of my snacks today though, so I'm already starting out with a struggle, but I'll figure something out.

Have a great Monday!

Tonight I'm chaperoning a middle school dance that is a fundraiser for the kids' DC trip this summer. I'm okay with the chaperone thing, it's only 3 hours and I don't have a life, so what else was I going to do? :) The worst part is that it seems like all the other parents are friends because they grew up together or have spouses that work together and I'm not part of that group, so it could be a long 3 hours. My daughter won't want anything to do with me either because she's too cool to acknowledge my presence, but hopefully she'll forget I'm there and have some fun socializing with her friends. I enjoy watching my kids laugh and have fun with other kids, it just makes me feel good.

On Sunday my dad gets to come home for a few hours, so that will be nice. My mom and brother are going to pick him up, and I'm going to make lunch for when they get home. I think we're having a turkey breast, potatoes, homemade bread, and probably veggies of some sort. My daughter is making cupcakes for my dad, so those won't be very good for me, but I'm going to make an effort to get workouts in this weekend, so hopefully that will combat some calories. The good thing about cupcakes instead of a full cake is that they're already portioned out so I can't cut myself a large piece. :)

I hope everyone has a great weekend!!

I did well yesterday and have my plan set for today, so hopefully there won't be any surprises. I ate pretty well yesterday so I'm proud of myself for that. When I told my hubby that we were having pork chops with only fruit and veggies he didn't say a word. He really wants to get back on the eating right wagon too, so he's glad when I make him eat healthier. :) Tonight will be more of the same. Chicken with veggies, salad, and fruit. I think when my hubby works he doesn't mind eating simply because he's not home thinking about grabbing something else during the night at home. We'll see how it goes and if we can keep it up. We've done this before, but then end up caving and starting to eat junk again when we're busy. Hopefully we don't slip into our old bad habits, or we're able to get ourselves out of it when we do slip.

Last night I didn't want to do a workout, I was all snuggled on the couch with the dogs, my son and I had read a chapter in his book for school, we went through homework, and I just didn't want to move. Well, I made myself get up and do something. I did a workout from an app so that I could even still watch TV, which makes it seem like cheating, and my son even did most of the workout with me. It wasn't a super hard workout but it felt good to do it and be off the couch. Then I got showered and got my lunch ready for today. So, it was a good night and I got a lot done.

Today will hopefully be more of the same. I'm feeling good today, I have my plan set, and I have no reason not to succeed. I hope everyone else is having a good day!

So I've been slacking lately. I haven't been recording food, I know I'm eating horribly, and I haven't been exercising. I keep trying to jump on the wagon and may grab on for a couple of days, then fall right back off again. I will take any excuse to eat poorly and lay around. I started getting flu like symptoms before Valentine's so I did poorly then and just kind of ate when I felt like it and just whatever sounded good. Then I felt better for a couple of days and the symptoms that my doc thinks could be from endometriosis came back. So I haven't felt much like doing anything. Today I'm starting to feel more like myself, so I'm hoping that I can make good decisions and get myself to workout. I've now started BC pils that hopefully will keep me from having those symptoms every month, but really I won't know until next month. I've been journaling my symptoms and looked back at my calendar from last month and around the same time I had the exact same thing going on, so it seems like I'm on to something, now I just need to fix it if possible.

I have this woman inside of me that wants to kick butt and eat right, but the other woman who is tired, doesn't feel good, and just wants to lay around and eat crap is winning right now. I have a goal to be feeling good by the end of April for my brother's wedding. I want to be able to go and have a good time and not feel like crap that weekend. I want to fit into the dress I have for it and not have to buy a new one. I just want to be healthy so I can enjoy it.

I'm really hoping these pills help me with the symptoms. If so, I should be able to get a good routine going and not get sidelined every couple of weeks with feeling nauseated, exhausted, and just downright yucky. It's discouraging to feel good, be eating well, get some exercise in, then to do a 180 and feel worn down and sick and crave comfort food. I'm thinking about buying a new DVD workout series to maybe boost my motivation. I love starting a new series and having that feeling of promise. It could be another month before the temps warm up and I start running outside, so I need to do something in the meantime. I have some DVD series right now, but I think because I know what's coming it's easy to say, I don't really like that workout and skip a day, then that leads to skipping 2 days, and so on and so forth. Well, I suppose it's time to start doing and stop talking, and turn the I wants into I wills.

I hope everyone has a great day!

Not feeling so hot today. There is a stomach bug going around work and it's always hard for me to tell if that is what I have or if it's my normal stomach issues. I felt okay yesterday until after dinner, then it all went downhill from there. I can't take a sick day today either because we're short in the office. I'll manage I'm sure, and it's probably good that we're short because the day will go by faster and there will be fewer people to bother me.

My hubby is a Valentine's person, so hopefully I'm feeling better by tomorrow because he wants to take me out to eat and just have a night to ourselves. All week he's left me little valentine's presents, candies, flowers, a cute window cling on the bathroom mirror, and a stuffed animal. He's a keeper for sure. I am not a Valentine's person, but it has made me smile this last week that he has made the effort to be so sweet and show how much he cares. So, I really can't be sick tomorrow, I'd hate to ruin Valentine's for him.

Well, other than being sick to my stomach, I don't have much news. No workout yesterday or today because of how I feel, but hopefully that will mean my eating will be good too. The toast I ate for breakfast is still in my system, so that's good, but I'm not going to chance it too much by eating junk today that's for sure.

I hope everyone has a great Friday and a great Valentine's weekend!! If you don't have a significant other, be your own Valentine and appreciate who you are and give yourself a gift or take yourself to a movie, just love you. :)
