31 March 2014

I think I made it through the weekend unscathed. I recorded everything and got my workouts in. The weekend wasn't as nice as they had predicted, so I didn't get anything done in the yard, but got a good run in yesterday.

We got our kids bikes in on Friday, so I'm excited for that. My hubby has my son's assembled, but has to do our daughter's yet. Now, we just have to find bikes for ourselves and we'll be set. I'm hoping we can find bikes either right before or right after Easter because that's when the kids are getting theirs, then we can start planning some rides around town. There is a hike and bike trail about a mile and a half from our house, or there are some country roads nearby, so we have some options. I can't wait!

This week I'm going to try to figure out how to up my protein intake. I have a hard time with carbs, I love them so much, so I know going too low on them would be hard for me, but I know I need to cut them back. So, I'm going to try to find some good lunch options that are higher protein and lower carb. The last couple of weeks has been a lot of sandwiches because they're easy and cheap. Now I need to find something that is easy and cheap and higher protein. That's my goal for the week.

Have a great Monday!!

I usually weigh in on Wednesday's but I forgot, then forgot again yesterday, so I weighed today. After yesterday's donut incident I was expecting to maintain, but I'm actually down. I guess watching my weekend intake and keeping up with the exercise is working.

Yesterday I didn't feel great so I didn't do my workout, and today I was planning to skip my workout because I was going to go out with friends. Well, the party pooper I am, I have been looking for excuses not to go out. I love my friends, but they are going to a bar out of town and I don't really want to drive by myself to the bar and home on country roads in the dark, especially now when I'm not feeling well and after work I'll be tired, heck I'm already tired. So, I think I'm going to cancel my night out and spend a quiet evening at home with the family. I feel bad not going, but if they were going to be in town I could stop by for an hour and go home. Oh well, next time I guess.

Tomorrow it's supposed to be 60's here, so I think I'm going to try to get some work done outside and get a workout in if I'm feeling up to it. Then Sunday is supposed to be in the 70's, so I'm definitely planning a run for Sunday. Maybe the fresh air will help kick whatever bug I have out of my system.

Have a great Friday!!

Not feeling the best today, my side is hurting and my stomach is not doing well. It could be a long work day. Hopefully it's just the quick stomach bug my daughter had the other day.

Yesterday I got a quick workout in after work and I feel like I ate fairly reasonably. Today we'll see. Whenever my stomach is like this I just eat whatever sounds good, and unfortunately someone here brought donuts and I already took one. I'm going to try to do the best I can today (better than the donut) and keep moving forward. It's one day of feeling crumby, I just need to suck it up. Maybe by the time I'm off work I'll feel better and will feel good enough for a workout, if not, no workout today.

I've whined in one of my group posts and now here in my journal, so enough whining from me today. Positive talk only for the rest of the day!

Have a great Thursday!

26 March 2014

I'm dragging today. I woke up with a headache and sore throat, but I'm going to power through the day. I have to work longer today too, yuck. Oh well, I'll make it through and be fine, I just need to stop whining.

The trip meeting went well last night. It is not cheap, of course, but doable. When I got home I told my daughter that she is going to have to work to earn this trip. Whenever there are fundraisers she's going to participate and sell her butt off. :) She was okay with that.

I ended up in the chocolate chips last night. Why do I do that? The night before was Cheetos. Tonight, none of it. It's so much easier when my hubby is home in the evening. I just have to figure out how to get rid of those cravings. I drink my water and I'll have a good snack, but I guess I just have to resist the cravings until they aren't nagging me.

Yesterday was a rest day, so today I'll have to get a workout in. I'm going to do a short one because of getting off work late. I was going to run, but it's supposed to be super windy, so no running. Being plugged up already I don't need to put my sinuses through that. But the weather will be nice this weekend so at least one of those days I'll get out there.

Middle of the week, and getting closer to the weekend!! Have a great Wednesday!!
