17 July 2014

I'm off to a better start today. I woke up on time, made my breakfast, had my lunch ready to go, and got to work on time and I know I work my normal schedule today. Someone brought donuts in again this morning too, but I didn't take one and I don't want one. :)

After work yesterday I went for my run and got almost 3 miles in and felt so much better just getting that done. There's nothing like putting some miles behind me to make me feel like I've accomplished something. Tonight I won't go for a run, but I'll make sure to get a workout in. My legs are sore from my workouts this week, that means I've been slacking the last couple of weeks, so I need to build back up again. :)

Yesterday my hubby wanted to make S'mores because he built a new fire pit for us, so I ate crap all day and then had S'mores, but only had 1. I'm going to try to do better today, like I said I've started off better than yesterday, so I just need to keep it that way.

Have a great Thursday!

Is it Monday again? I woke up a full 30 mins late this morning. What?! I never oversleep that late, but when I realized I'd overslept I didn't rush around I just got up and slowly made my way to the bathroom to get ready. Well, my breakfast was late and my stomach was growling, so I ended up eating cereal and more than I should have. Then I get to work and there are donuts, and I didn't pack my lunch because I had no time, so now I have a donut on my desk for lunch. Ugh, I really need to get my eating under control. Oh yeah, and I forgot that I have to work later tonight, so I don't know if I'll get a workout in this evening or not. But, I'm going to push through. These little silly "problems" in my life are not big and it's one day, I'll make it through and tomorrow will be better. I am going to stay positive, even with a donut lunch. :) My hubby doesn't work tonight, so I should be able to at least do a quick workout or maybe a 30 min. run. Tonight I'm going to try to get my lunch mostly prepared for tomorrow, so even if I do sleep in I have no excuse not to grab my lunch and go. I will make small solutions for my small issues and now I can move on.

I hope everyone has a great Wednesday!!

Went for a run last night, a little less than 3 miles, but pretty close. I was only going to go for 2, but pushed myself a little further. I felt pretty good running except for my side has been hurting, so that gave me some pain toward the end, but my legs weren't killing me, so that was a good thing. I'm going to try to start running short distances a few times a week and work on building back up. My goal is to be able to run further without the hip pain, time doesn't really matter much to me right now, I'd rather be able to go further with less pain than go faster and hurt.

My headache is still hanging on, but not horrible yet, so I'm still hoping to keep it at bay. I've got too much to do to deal with the headache and I think the exercise at the end of the day helps, so I need to use that as a motivator. :)

My kids are going with my Mom to Yellowstone in a few weeks and I'm so jealous, I wish I could go with. They're excited to go, but we'll see how excited my daughter is when they are actually there and hiking. :) We took the kids to Mt. Rushmore a couple years ago and she complained about all the walking, so I hope she does better at Yellowstone. The outdoors just isn't really her thing and she's scared of everything, so I hope the animals just all stay away from her. I think my Mom's crazy though for taking 4 grandkids by herself, in a car, to Yellowstone, but I'm sure they'll have a good time.

Back to work. Have a great Tuesday!!

14 July 2014

I hope everyone had a great weekend! I was busy for the most part, which meant no workouts, but at least I was up moving. I picked, prepared, and canned a few pints of green beans and that was neat because I'd never done it before. I helped my mom and aunt can things growing up, but had never done it myself and mainly when I helped it was with the prep. Now I can't wait to either can more beans or pickles. It feels good to know that some of the bounty of my garden won't be wasted. :)

I'm feeling like I have a migraine creeping in, so I'm trying to stay on top of it and take some meds. I'm hoping that it just stays a nagging little headache for a few days and goes away. The headache has been causing some nausea also, so I'm hoping that by the end of the day I'm feeling good and ready for a run. The plus side of a headache with nausea is that I'm not wanting to eat. Even with the headache I'm determined to stay positive today. :)

Well, I suppose I'd better get to work. Have a great Monday!!

11 July 2014

Well, it's been about a month since I weighed in last and I'm up about 1.5 pounds or so, but it's no surprise since I've been eating horribly and not getting as much exercise. Now it's time to get back on track before that 1.5 up turns into 5 then 10.

Yesterday after work I went for a run, which I haven't done since Friday and it was a good workout, but I only made it a little over 2 miles. Once my hip started hurting I quit and now today I'm not sore and limping around, so I think I made the right choice. Tonight the kids have friends staying the night, so they will have taken over the house when I get home, so no workout, but I'm going to try to get one in both days this weekend.

Eating wise I'm going to try to get back on track in the next couple of weeks. Today I'm going to try to stick with only foods that I already have planned and hopefully I'll get to the store tomorrow to buy some healthy things for next week. I've been so tired lately and I know some of that comes from eating crap. Time for a change!

Have a great Friday and a great weekend!!
