05 January 2015

It's been a long time since I've been on here. Life has definitely been busy with the holidays, work, my dad in the hospital, and just life in general. I apparently have found plenty of time to eat junk and couldn't find time to exercise, judging by my weigh in. It always seems so much easier to get motivated in January than in November and December. Maybe it's just the free time I now have, but whatever it is hopefully I can stay motivated.

I did a workout on Saturday and I'm still feeling it today. I'm going to get another workout done this evening. Yesterday was all about cleaning the house, shopping, and finally taking down Christmas decorations. I truly have no excuses not to get workouts in at least a few evenings per week and on the weekends now that the holidays are over, so I need to stick to them.

Eating has been a hard thing for me forever and the holidays just solidify that I love too much. No more baking for me until November! I'm glad my hubby feels the same way, now we can both make healthy choices together. No more junk! Tomorrow any junk that is left in my house is making it's way to my work kitchen, because I won't touch it there. I've had my share of junk, now it's time to get to work and get rid of the junk that's still in my trunk. :)

I hope everyone had a great holiday season and is starting the new year off with a bang!!

I hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving weekend! Let the stress of the holiday season begin! It has for me at least, but I hope others are feeling the joy of the season and basking in it. :)

My dad had a stroke on Thanksgiving, so much of my weekend was spent in the hospital. He's doing okay. His left side is week, his face is droopy on that side, he has no use of his left arm, he can't see on that side, and his left leg is weak, but they think he may regain at least some of that. I'm running on hope right now, that he will get at least a fraction better. His speech is not the best, but seems like it's getting better and at least he makes sense and we can understand mostly what he's saying. Today it's back to work, but I'll make a stop at the hospital before I head home. We're hoping he starts physical therapy soon, and with that we won't be able to visit as often, so he can save his strength. Luckily my mom works in the hospital, so at least she's right there if they need her and she can keep us posted.

Another holiday treat over the weekend, our dishwasher decided to start leaking. So, Merry Christmas to us, we're buying ourselves a new one for Christmas. Not what I had in mind, but you gotta do what you gotta do, and I have grown spoiled by having a dishwasher, so I guess there are worse things we could get ourselves.

This coming weekend is my office Christmas Party and there will be about 70 people coming. Another person is making the meat and potatoes, and I'm doing green beans, rolls, salad, and some decorations. It will be fun and nice to have an evening just enjoying ourselves, but right now a Christmas party is about the furthest thing from my mind. Next week are all of the kids Christmas programs (3), my daughter's birthday, and then the birthday party. It's a hectic time of year, but we all manage. So, if you don't see me here for a while, just know I'm trying to behave, stay sane, and keeping busy. :)

I hope everyone has a great holiday season!!

I'm finally admitting to my gain. I knew I had gained but hadn't weighed in, so now that I've crept back up to almost the weight I was when I started here, maybe I'll get my butt in gear and make the effort to go back down.

I think I've kind of figured out my issue this time of year, I thought it was the cold, but I think it's more that I just start feeling overwhelmed and then I shut down. It's like my brain gears only toward the stress and all I can think about is all of the projects, events, shopping, etc. that I need to get done and when I don't have any of those stressful things happening at the moment I just turn into a vegetable. I'm sure I'm not the only one, but I'm trying to figure out how to push through this. Now that I've kind of figured this out, and feel like "duh, you know this is going to happen every year", I'm going to try to make myself some lists in hopes that then I can see I'm just stressing myself for nothing, because that's what I do. Maybe with some enlightenment will come less stress and I will see how much time I actually do have to work out.

I need to work on my eating too because with stress comes eating whatever crap is nearby. My hubby is on the same page as me and wanting to eat better, so at least that's helpful so he's not fighting me wanting to eat junk. Another list of some healthy food options needs made too.

Well, I guess I'm going to go make my lists now. :) Have a great weekend!

20 November 2014

Has anyone else had one of those weeks that you just want to play hookie? I really want to do that this week, but haven't been able to because other people have been gone. But then I tell myself, "what would you do if you were off anyway?" I'd probably eat junk, so it's better if I'm working. I think part of wanting to be off is because everyone else has been taking days off here and there and I'm jealous, and because I've slowed down a lot at work, so I'm twiddling my thumbs. Oh will the boredom ever cease! I guess it could be worse, and I should be thankful that I have a job at all.

Okay enough dreaming of lazy days off. I'm just a slacker right now. I have done one workout this week, and that's better than none, but I want to do more. Hopefully tonight I'll have the motivation to get it done, but since I don't get home until late it will have to wait until later in the evening after dinner.

I'm still struggling with my eating too. I just want to eat anything sweet, but especially chocolate. Right now I'm hungry for fast food too and I don't know why, it just sounds good. I'm going to try to keep pushing past cravings and make better choices. With Thanksgiving next week I'm sure there will be a lot of temptation.

I hope everyone has had a great week so far and a great weekend if I don't get back here tomorrow!
