19 June 2015

Well, my weight is the same as my last weigh in, but I'm good with that. I know it was going back up, so being back to where I was is good. I just have to keep eating better and exercising.

I got my T25 workout DVD's last night, so I'm excited to start them. It's a Monday through Friday schedule, but I think I'm going to start on the weekend anyway because I have more time to workout on the weekends than during the week anyway, so it makes more sense to have a day or two off during the week. I went for a run/walk yesterday and managed to go a little over 3 miles. I ran for a total of 27 mins., but couldn't do the consecutive running. I just wasn't doing very good about pushing myself and thinking positive thoughts. The thing I need to work on while running is my breathing because that's what I feel like I struggle with the most. I'll get there. We have a 5K on July 4th, and last year I was able to run the whole thing, and this year I'm going to try again, but I'm not going to kill myself to do it.

Baseball was rescheduled from last night to tonight, so no workout, but I'm ready to get these last few games done. I'm going to grab an unwich from Jimmy John's and have a little picnic in the park while my hubby and son are practicing with the team. Pretty much as soon as I get home we have to go to the ball field, so I'm treating myself a little. :)

This weekend will be some gardening, cleaning, and hopefully T25. I hope everyone has a great weekend!!

It's pre-Friday! It's been raining here, but is finally clearing off, so I'm hoping the ball game tonight will still be on. It's been so wet it doesn't take much for the fields to flood. If they win the game tonight they'll play next week, but if they lose they're done. They've worked so hard, I hope they win!

Last night was busy. I had to take my niece home after I got off work, then it was rush home, eat quickly, cut up cantaloupe, and get my son to ball practice. I came home while he was at practice and cleaned our messy kitchen and paid some bills, then when I went to pick him up they weren't quite ready so I walked around the block until they were done. When we got home I did my ab workout and sliders, took a shower, and it was bed time. Tonight if we have the game it will be kind of busy, but mostly sitting at the ball park, so probably no workout. My new workout DVD's should be coming in the mail in the next day or so and I'm ready to get them started. I never in a million years when I was younger would have thought that I would get excited for a workout. :)

Today is a birthday at our office and we all brought a different type of fruit in (at the person's request), so there are some good choices. I can't eat the cake or cookies anyway, so it makes it easier to resist, but not having it at all makes it even better. :)

I hope everyone has a great day!!

We're halfway through the week! I managed to get a run in after work yesterday, then did some gardening, and today my legs are not happy, especially my knees. So, today is ab day. My son has ball practice at 6 and my niece has been with us and I'm taking her home so the workout will probably be done later this evening, but I need to do it. I know I can fit it in at some point, but it will be hard to keep my motivation.

I've been doing okay with my eating and managed to get my fiber up yesterday. Today I'm hoping to keep my fiber and protein up. Tomorrow is going to be hard in the evening because my son has a ball game as soon as I get off work so I'll have to grab something to eat and go. I'm going to try to plan something tonight, but we'll see how it goes.

I hope everyone has a great day!!

Okay, I'm open to suggestions, I am trying to up my fiber intake and having a difficult time. I want to stay under or right at 1400 calories (at least on days I'm not doing hard workouts) and I'm doing a low FODMAP diet (doctor recommended), so no dairy, wheat, garlic, onion, apples, pears, and the list goes on. Being on a more restrictive diet doesn't help matters, but if anyone has any good fiber sources I'm willing to try them out. I'm in a challenge where the goal is to get at least 20g of fiber per day and I'm getting about 16g. I did some reading and it looks like the 20g mark is closer to where I should be. I also need to work on eating more protein, but that's a whole other issue, mainly my laziness to prep things ahead of time. Any thoughts on all this are welcome!

With that being said, I'm on week 6 of the low FODMAP and I've made it without cheating. I'm so proud of myself. I have had some cravings, but knowing that I'm on this diet has really made me think about the cravings and what my body needs. I have found ways to still eat poorly on this diet, i.e. flourless cookies, but I'm happy that I've tried it. Next week I start adding things back in, so I'm really struggling with what to add first. I'm thinking something simple like ketchup, you don't realize how much you use something until you don't have it.

Yesterday I wanted to get a workout in after work, but I was just exhausted. I don't know why, but I think part of it was just the busy day and the gloomy weather. I should have just made myself do a workout, but I got home sat on the couch and my eyes didn't want to stay open. Today I'm going to try to get out for a run. The sun is shining and it's going to be a decent day. My run is 22 mins. straight, which will be the longest so far, so hopefully I can make it. I did 20 and was struggling, so hopefully I can push myself mentally for this 22. :)

I hope everyone has a great day!!

It's another gloomy day today. It went from 100 (or a little over) on Wednesday to 60's today, crazy weather. At least it was nice enough to get my run/walk in last night. Tonight we have to be at baseball as soon as I get home, so probably no workout. I'm going to have to rush to grab something to eat at home, so it may be a PB&J, but that's better than starving through the game and stuffing my face when I get home.

I'm anxiously awaiting my new DVD's. They're supposed to arrive next Friday, and you are supposed to use a Monday through Friday schedule, but I don't know if I'll be able to wait until Monday. :) I just hope I like it and I'm not disappointed. We shall see.

I've been eating okay. Within my calories, but I'm sure some of my choices could be better. I'm going to work on some of that this weekend. I'm planning to make some granola bars and grill some meat for my salads next week. It definitely helps to have a plan. Only 2 more weeks of baseball, so we shouldn't have too much evening rushing after that and that will help too.

I hope everyone has a great weekend!!
