15 September 2015

No workout this morning or last night, but I will get my walk in during my daughter's practice and maybe another short workout this evening. I have a cold in the works, so I took something last night and it made me not want to get out of bed this morning. Tonight I'm going to try not to take anything and see if I can wake up for a workout in the morning. I am going to try to find something else I can take during the day though so this cold doesn't take me down.

Feeling more positive has definitely helped my willpower this week so far. Last week I was eating chocolate because I didn't care, and at home I'd get seconds of dinner because I didn't care. Even though it's hard to resist the chocolate, and now donut holes, in the office, I know I can because I have food packed and ready to go that will do me more good than the junk. I just need to get the exercise worked in and that make things even better. :)

Here is a non weight loss related story from yesterday. I got home and went in my room to change, like normal and there is a TV hanging on the wall (very well mounted with no wires showing). I looked at my hubby and said "You got a new TV, huh." When I was looking at it I said "Isn't it going to be hard for you to see it from your side of the bed." He got a little upset because I wasn't immediately jumping for joy and I was just kind of like, okay there's a TV here now. The TV is my birthday present. Oops! I apologized for not being ecstatic, but I thought he put it in for himself. I thanked him for thinking of me and taking the time to put it up and do a good job with it. I feel bad for not being excited, but I typically don't get excited for "things", if he said we were going to do something I would have been more excited, but I am thankful that he's a thoughtful guy and still wants to do things to surprise me. This is the reason I keep telling him not to get me things for my birthday! :)

Well, I'm back today with a more positive attitude. Hopefully I'll be able to keep this up all week. No workout this morning, but healthy snacks and lunch planned and maybe a quick workout while dinner is cooking tonight. I did get workouts in over the weekend and that was good. My eating wasn't the best, but I did eat fruit for snacks and made sure to eat veggies at least with dinner, so I feel good about that.

This week I have my lunches planned and have plenty of healthy options to snack on so I'm hoping that will help me stay out of the junk. I don't have much for junk at home, but right now at work there is all sorts of chocolate. It's going to be a chocolate filled office now through the holidays. The Halloween candy has already come out.

I'm also going to try to walk for at least 20 mins while I wait for my daughter at volleyball practice a few times this week. I have about an 45 mins to wait and if I walk for about 20 or 25 and read for my class for the remainder that will help me get some steps in. This week I'll have to bring a change of clothes with me though because it's going to be HOT. Today I'm just reading because I don't have clothes or shoes, silly me, but tomorrow I'm going to get some walking done. If I can get my regular workouts in along with some walks that should help get me back on track.

I don't know about anyone else, but with fall getting closer I'm ready to get rid of the hot weather. I don't want freezing weather or snow, just nice fall days that I'm comfortable in a sweatshirt and jeans. I love fall, so I'm ready for it to get here. Push this hot weather out and bring on the cooler temps!!

I hope everyone has a great Monday!!

I'm hoping this weekend I can finally dig myself out of this funk. I've been battling it all week, well really for about a couple of weeks, and I'm not winning. This weekend I'm going to look up some healthy recipes and maybe some motivational images, sayings, something to get my attitude to change. I've eaten a lot of chocolate and other junk this week and had no exercise. My joints are starting to feel better today, but my brain is still telling me just to sit around and do nothing and eat junk. It's like my brain is messing with me. I'm really thinking this could be the shot and I do remember feeling this way when I was on it before. How can something so simple mess with me so much? If it is the shot, then I'll have to deal with this until November and it will be a struggle, but I just have to keep telling myself that I don't want to just sit around and do nothing, I do want to eat healthy, and this is not me.

So, here's hoping I find something this weekend that really helps me get myself back on track and has me back on the road to my normal, more positive self soon. I hope everyone has a great weekend!!

I slept so good last night that I didn't wake up to my alarm and get a workout done this morning. I may have time this evening, but we'll see if I get it done. I still have a page of my 3 page paper to finish, and who knows what page 2 actually looks like. I got to a point last night that I think I just rambled through, repeated myself, and didn't make any sense, so that will be my goal for tonight, to finish a coherent paper. If it were a fictional paper, research paper, or creative writing I would be fine, but it's a position-opinion paper for economics on a couple of news articles and I think I'm boring myself just going through the articles. At least this is the only paper I have to write for this class.

In the diet and exercise world, all I can say is ugh. I ate okay, until the chocolate somehow snuck into my mouth yesterday. I have all sorts of excuses as to why I wanted it, comfort because I'm still not feeling 100%, stress, stupid people at work, etc., but those are excuses and I know I don't need to eat it. So, today I will try again. My joints are all aching, probably due to the weather, so some of those thoughts of wanting junk for comfort will seep in, but I have to fight them off and just eat the healthy lunch and snacks I packed. I will try to get my workout done tonight too and that may actually help a little with the achy joints.

I hope everyone has a wonderful Wednesday!!

08 September 2015

I don't know how I managed a loss over the long weekend, but I did. It was a great restful weekend and I'm so happy that I didn't push myself and just took it easy. I was going to start my morning off with a workout and of course, the one night through the whole weekend that I didn't sleep was the night before I go back to work. So, no workout and probably none tonight either because I have a 3 page paper I want to get knocked out and my daughter has a volleyball game. Hopefully tomorrow waking up will be easier. I didn't eat the best all weekend, but I didn't snack a whole lot. I've got lunches prepped for the week and they are full of veggies, so I shouldn't be lacking in that department this week.

Over the weekend some of my motivation came back at least for a while and I did manage to get a lot done, but now today I'm kind of back in that funk. It's not as bad though, so hopefully I'll be completely snapped out of it soon. I think if I can get back into my exercise routine I'll feel more positive too. It was very fall-like yesterday and I love fall, so maybe that's part of the reason for the energy boost?

I'd better get back to work. I just wanted to check in on my lunch break. I hope everyone had a great weekend and has a great day today!
