What is up with all these cookies??!! There are more cookies in the office today for someone's birthday and they are my favorite from this particular place, frosted sugar cookies. Ugh. It will be another test of my will power, but I'm going to do my best to resist them yet again. Is someone testing me? Is there a hidden camera somewhere and someone is going to pop out if I grab a cookie? I've looked at them and smelled them, but that's as far as it goes. I know I can allow myself treats once in a while, but I know this weekend we're going to see some family out of town so there will probably be some junk food and eating out, and I'd way rather treat myself a little then than eat a cookie now. I have to feel like I'm in control and not eating a cookie is how I'm going to do that today. :)

I hope everyone has a great Wednesday!!

There are still cookies in the office, but they are almost gone and I resisted yesterday so I know I can resist today. I have my food all planned, so hopefully I can stick to the plan, which doesn't include cookies. We're already having an unhealthy dinner of pigs in a blanket tonight because we let the kids pick a couple of nights this week. They tend to not complain as much if we let them have a night or 2 of something they want. If I can plan it out and stick to moderation I'm sure I'll be okay.

Yesterday I was tired all day because I didn't sleep well, so no workout and I was wanting to nod off on the couch all night. I got some laundry folded after dinner, then just zoned out to the TV. I slept better last night, so hopefully I'll be ready for a workout after work, then finish up a paper for one of my classes after dinner. It would be great if I could fit a walk in too, but the paper has to come first and we'll see if I have time after that.

Not much else new today. Have a great Tuesday!!

I'm down almost a pound this week, so I've done something right. I know it's my eating that has been changed the most in the last couple of weeks. I've been eating a lot more fruits and veggies during the day and if I have an evening snack it's been fruit. Next week I'm going to try to get even more veggies in with dinner. I've also been getting my workouts and/or walks in, so that helps too. Now today someone is leaving my office and he's buying pizza for everyone and someone brought cake. I don't know if I will partake because I brought my lunch, but if I do I'll keep it minimal and not go too crazy.

The fall weather is hitting us right now and I'm enjoying it. I went for a walk late last night and it was chilly, but nice. Tomorrow we're supposed to go to the pumpkin patch with my mom and my brother and his family, but it's supposed to be rainy and cold, so we'll see if we end up going. My niece has been sick, so I don't think they'll want to take her out if it's raining. I want to go look at the mums though and pick up a couple if they aren't too expensive. I need some outdoor fall d├ęcor.

Here's my mom mini-rant for the day: Last night I was stressing a bit because the dishes needed to be done and I wanted to go for a walk. Well, doing the dishes is one of my kids' chores and they were home all day and didn't do them, so I was a "mean" mom and made them do their chore and I went for my walk. I don't know why but I sometimes feel guilty making them do their chores, and I know shouldn't. It's not like they have a lot to do, just keeping their stuff picked up, taking out the trash and recycle, dishes, and taking care of their dogs. I need to remember that I don't need to stress myself by doing their chores, that isn't teaching them any responsibility. So this weekend they are doing their chores and I'm going to do some things that I have put off because I get busy doing everybody else's stuff. Time spent on their Ipads or watching TV isn't that important.

I hope everyone has a great weekend!!

30 September 2015

So my morning already started off with a bump in the road. I was going to grab my chicken and get veggies ready for my lunch, but the chicken I had prepped was all gone, apparently my hubby ate it all. I had taken the time to slice it up, weigh it out, and pre-portion it in baggies for my lunch and he ate it! I was so mad. I had nothing else to eat for lunch because that was what I had planned, so I guess it's off to the grocery store to buy more chicken to grill and a salad for lunch today. He's so lucky he was sleeping or he would have been ripped a new one this morning. By the end of the day I'll have cooled off and can calmly explain to him that if he wants stuff prepped for lunch he needs to get off his butt and at least help me do it. I guess I should look at the positive that he's trying to eat healthier, but it's hard when I'm doing all the work to make the healthy food. Okay enough of that rant. :)

I did get up and do a workout this morning and went for a walk again last night. I have been eating healthy foods this week. Our dinners haven't been super healthy, but I'm trying to stick to moderation. Even though I have to go get my lunch today I still want something healthy, I haven't (yet) made the excuse that since I have to go get something I can get something bad for me, so that's progress. Tonight I probably won't get a walk in because I need to do some major studying for a test. I have a test on 5 chapters that I need to get done and I've been putting it off because it's a lot of material to cover. We'll see though I still may try to get something small in, yoga maybe, because I've been sleeping like a rock when I've gotten activity in during the evening.

My big debate today is whether or not to order a new exercise program. I know my hubby will not be happy if I do because I've ordered a bunch already, but there is a new Facebook challenge involving a workout and eating program that I'd like to do (21 Day Fix). I felt like the last challenge I did was helpful for my eating and the next one is a 3 week not just a 5 day program. I know a lot of it is about money because they want you to buy their program, but really it's given me motivation and some helpful tools and tips for healthy eating. I can either pay $60 up front or make payments of $20 per month. I don't know what I'm going to do, but I have to decide by today because today's the deadline. I guess it's cheaper than my hubby's gym membership that he never uses, and maybe he would participate somewhat too since he's trying to eat healthier. Decisions, decisions.

Well, enough of my crazy ramblings today. Have a great Hump Day!!
