15 July 2014

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!!

Wow, I haven't been on here and journaled for a week! Needless to say I'm not doing well, it seems like any time I leave the site for a while I start slipping. I was hit hard with TOM last week and this week have had a horrible summer cold. Now I'm starting to feel better so it's time to get back to it.

I did my 5K last Friday and did it at a slow 35 mins, but I crossed the finish line and didn't walk, so I'm happy with that. My goal was to run the whole thing and I did it. Then I didn't do a workout until Tuesday. I was feeling horrible through the weekend and then just exhausted after work on Monday, so I took a few days of break. Now I'm trying to get back to it, but the cold is hanging on and making the workouts harder.

My eating has been TERRIBLE! I was having horrible chocolate cravings last week and unfortunately gave into them, and they've hung on into this week, so I'm trying to get a grip on my eating. I've been hungry for bland foods other than chocolate this week, but I want to just munch all the time. I have to get myself back on my schedule and in to the routine again, but it's hard after a couple of weeks of bad eating. Every day I wake up is a chance to do better, so I just have to keep working at it. Hopefully I can get back on track in the next couple of weeks.

Have a great day!!

Today is my last day of work for the week, woo hoo! After work I have to pack quickly then we're off to my BIL & SIL's house. We were going to wait and go early tomorrow, but they want us to go tonight to watch a firworks show with them. I'm not a huge fireworks person and neither is my daughter, but my hubby and son are, so we're going for them.

Tomorrow morning is the 5K. I'm sure I'll be nervous about it when we get there, but I'm just going to do my best and not worry about how fast everyone else is going. The bad thing is that I had a plan for the morning before the 5K for breakfast and a stretching DVD, but now that we'll be away from home my plans have changed. I'm going to go buy a good breakfast bar for tomorrow morning and I'll just do a good stretching routine without the DVD tomorrow before the race. I'm trying to roll with the punches. :) My poor hubby has now gotten roped into going over before the 5K to his step-brother's dad's house to help them with some concrete work. I just hope they get everything done before we have to be at the 5K.

My eating this week has just been terrible, but I'm attributing the chocolate cravings to TOM and hopefully I'll be able to do better today. I keep saying that this week and keep eating the chocolate. Well, today my stomach is not feeling well, so I'm hoping that it helps me stay away from junk. I'm sure part of not feeling well is all of the junk I've been eating.

Have a great weekend and a happy 4th!!
