06 April 2015

Well, I'm down a pound today, so I'll take it. I was super busy last week and over the weekend and only exercised I think twice the whole week and thought my eating was worse than it was. I've been getting better with my will power lately though and been able to say no to things, so I'm getting stronger mentally.

Yesterday we had lunch at my Mom's for Easter. We really didn't have a ton of food, but enough. I ate small servings of everything and even had some dessert, but kept that small too. I left not feeling overstuffed but just right. Last night we had sandwiches for dinner and I had some veggies, a salad, and beets, so I feel like I did pretty well for being tempted by the Easter treats. I have only eaten a few jelly beans and a reese's egg this year, no other Easter candy has passed my lips. :) I've been craving a Cadbury egg though, so I may break down and eat one as long as it fits into my calories, but I think now that Easter is over the craving will go away.

This week I'm just going to try to do the same with eating and just keep it under control. The week won't be as busy so that will help and I should be able to get some exercise in. My run yesterday was much needed and felt great, so I need to keep going, but the rain may keep me from running this week. I have plenty of DVD's to keep me going though.

I hope everyone has a great Monday!

I don't normally do a second journal, but I'm trying to keep myself awake so here I am. :)

I've been trying to give up soda. I usually only have one can of diet soda per day, but I want to completely get rid of it. I'm not being too harsh about it right now, I'm still allowing myself to have soda if I go out and feel like it and I had one yesterday at the hospital because I just wanted something sweet. I am noticing that today and on Tuesday I've had cravings for it after lunch. That is the time I would normally have had it, so it's no surprise. I haven't brought it to work though, so I'm just drinking my water and not giving into the craving. I hope after a week or two the cravings go away, but I've been doing pretty well and once the craving subsides I don't miss it. I have been drinking tea in the evenings, either iced or hot, and that has been helpful too. Maybe someday I'll actually be completely soda free. I thought it would actually be harder. Now, if I can just get rid of my coffee with sweetner and cream in the mornings I'd be set!

My hubby just told me he thinks he's getting sick and has a fever. My son was just sick with what we think was influenza, so it wouldn't be surprising. It's funny though because he was messing with my son when he was sick and holding his head, well my son sneezed right in his face and I told my hubby he'd be sick within the week. When I'm right, I'm right, but I wish I weren't right about this. My hubby is a huge man-child when he's sick and the world will have to stop to take care of him. It could be a long weekend.

Okay back to life. It's been the longest day ever, and it isn't even close to over yet.

I'm feeling tired today. Yesterday I was up at 4 a.m. to take my aunt to surgery and I tossed and turned all night before that because I knew I had to be up, and last night I had trouble sleeping too, so today my eyelids are heavy. Surgery went well yesterday and my aunt will come home today. I was at the hospital for 10 hours yesterday, so that made for a long day. The only thing I ate in that 10 hours was a package of vending machine donuts, so I ate poorly when I left because I was starving, but didn't eat again. Today I've already had a donut, so I need to quit the junk right now. I'm going to run over and grab a salad for lunch to at least try to redeem myself a little bit. I don't know if I'll get a workout in because I'm working late and I'm exhausted. I am taking tomorrow off work so I can help my aunt and my dad and get some Easter stuff done, and hopefully I'll be able to sleep in a bit since the kids are out of school. I should be able to fit a run in tomorrow too. I'm also picking up another fruit and veggie basket so we'll see what I get this time. Last time I got a lot of peppers, and I love peppers, but my family doesn't, so most of them went in the freezer. I'm hoping for something a little different this time.

Well, not much to report from my sleepy world today. Have a great Thursday and a great weekend if I'm not back before then!

Okay, so we've had a strange situation arise in our lives that will probably never happen again. My hubby's high school girlfriend died this week and he's been back and forth about whether or not to go to the funeral. They were together for 3 years, but haven't talked or seen each other in at least 16 years. The funeral is about 4 hours away and some friends of his from high school are going and asked him to go with them and stay over night the night before the funeral then drive back after. I told him to do what he needed to do, but not to feel guilty either way. If he goes he can pay his respects to a girl who was a good friend and I'm sure, at least for a while when they were young, he thought he would marry some day. If he doesn't go he shouldn't feel guilty because they haven't spoken or kept in touch for 16 years and have grown into different people than they were in high school.

I was always kind of jealous of her because she was his first love and she became a doctor and I felt she just had more to offer than I did, but he never went back to her, he never felt the need, he loves me so I guess I feel kind of guilty for those feelings now that she's gone. My hubby is my first love, I never had a relationship before him for longer than a few weeks and I haven't kept in touch with any of those guys. The only thing I can relate it to is if a friend from high school died that I haven't kept in touch with, what would I want to do? I'd probably feel the same as him and go back and forth. Anyway, I've just been thinking about it and how fragile life can be so I just had to get it out of my head. So, for anyone who's actually read this sorry for the lengthy journal.

In other news, I went for a run yesterday and ate decent, today will hopefully be much of the same. My son is still sick, but my daughter felt better by last night so she went to school and my hubby is home with my son today. Tomorrow I take my aunt in for surgery on her elbow and it's supposed to be a stormy day, so hopefully my car doesn't get hailed on or we don't have a tornado while she's in surgery.

I hope everyone has a great Tuesday!!

30 March 2015

Both of my kids are home sick today and my hubby has to go out of town, so I'm going to only work half a day so I can be home with them. I'm hoping that they don't have influenza and it's just sinus stuff, but my son has had a fever since Saturday. The doctor didn't want to even test him for influenza because he said at this point it would just have to run it's course anyway. My daughter just started getting sick today, so I'm hoping that's not what it is. I may be off to the doctor this afternoon if she's still miserable. Oh the life of a parent.

I did a weigh in this morning and I'm the same, which probably actually means I lost from the 3 weeks I hadn't weighed myself. I'm pretty sure I was up, so I'm good with being the same and hopefully if I can keep doing better by next week I'll have a little loss. My eating wasn't perfect last week, but I was aware, I recorded everything, and I tried to be good. This week I'm just going to keep trying and recording. Today will be hard because I'll be at home for part of the day, but I've got some healthy snacks and food to eat and it will be nice outside so at some point I'll go for a run. I ran on Saturday and we shopped all day on Sunday so I was somewhat active at least. We did eat out yesterday though, so I blew my calories, but I didn't snack throughout the day.

I've been wanting chocolate so bad lately and I think it's because I haven't been eating much chocolate. I know if I allow myself a small piece then I'll want more, so I just have to avoid it. If I can stay strong for a few more weeks, maybe that craving will just go away. I'm also going to try to stop drinking soda. I usually only have 1 a day, but I figure that's maybe 12 more ounces of water I could drink instead, so that would be healthier. My kids don't need it either, so if I don't buy it they won't have it as an option.

Well, I'm off to get my week going, it's not off to the best start and will be kind of hectic, but I'll make it through. Have a great Monday!!
