11 August 2015

I managed to get out of bed early to get a workout in this morning. I really wanted to sleep in, but it was only about 45 mins earlier and when I went in to add my exercise it felt great that I already got 30 mins done. Hopefully I'll be able to get up early the rest of the week since I've made it a goal. I used to do morning workouts and loved it, but once I got out of the habit it's been really hard to get back to it.

Yesterday I ended going for a walk for a little over 3 miles. I made myself go out and then it was so nice I decided I wanted to walk for about an hour, and that was over 3 miles.

My eating yesterday wasn't terrible, but could have been better. Today shouldn't be too bad, except for dinner. I don't know for sure what we're having because we have both the kids school open houses tonight. We'll be eating when we get home, so it could be leftovers or just something quick because I'm sure we'll all be starving by then.

Tomorrow is my son's first day of school and Thursday is my daughter's. I can't believe the summer is over! Time has just flown by, but I think time goes faster every year as my kids get older. Now, it's back to car pools, practices, games, and other activities throughout the year. It's going to be a bittersweet year as my son is in 5th grade and my daughter is in 8th and we'll be leaving elementary school completely behind after this year. I'm probably going to have a break down before school starts next year. How did my kids get so old already?

I hope everyone has a great Tuesday!!

I struggled with food over the weekend. I ate pizza, I haven't eaten pizza in about 3 months and it was amazing, and we went out to eat and I had onion rings and they were also amazing. The downside of eating junk for me is that I pay for it for days afterward. This is why I started the low FODMAP diet and I need to think about that the next time I want to eat pizza and onion rings. Today I'm going to try to eat low FODMAP and really begin again. This is TMI, but I feel like I've been in the bathroom all day and I just feel run down. I'm actually going to track my weight more often for a while and see how much it fluctuates when I'm feeling good and bad. I've been going up and down about 4 lbs. either way.

On the exercise side of things I didn't do well over the weekend either. I did get a couple of walks in and a little gardening, but that's it. We've been busy getting ready for back to school and getting some things done around the house, so I've been pushing the exercise to the back burner. I want to try to start getting up early to exercise. If I can get in to a good routine with that I know it will help.

I hope everyone had a great weekend and your Monday is off to a great start!

Well, I'm going into this weekend hoping that I can stick to eating well. I've been allowing myself to eat more things that aren't on my diet and I've been paying for it. You'd think having a stomach ache would make me stop eating junk, but it hasn't so far. I haven't gotten completely out of hand, but I need to do better. Today I ran to Panera to grab a salad for lunch and ate a little over half and used maybe a quarter of the dressing. I did also eat half of the baguette, which I shouldn't have eaten at all, but I did it so I need to record it and move on. I have some healthy snacks packed for the day, so at least what I eat at work will be decent for me.

I am working late the next 2 weeks because the person who typically works late is on vacation, so I get to fill in. Working late makes it much harder to do evening workouts, but I need to make myself do something because I can't seem to make myself get up earlier. My goal for next week is going to be figuring out how to get my workouts in.

I'm doing an official weigh in on Monday, so I'm using that as motivation to eat well and exercise this weekend. We'll see how it goes. :)

I hope everyone has a great Friday!!

TGIF! I'm feeling terrible today, so it's not going to be very productive. My stomach is just not happy and I don't know why, but I don't think I'll be doing much eating today. Hopefully I'm feeling better by Monday when we're headed to the outlet mall for some school shopping.

I've got to take my little dog into the vet this afternoon because he's been having some trouble with his back again. He had surgery a few years ago and now he seems to be having some troubles again. We're hoping it's not bad enough to have to put him down, but won't know anything until we see the vet. We at least will just want to keep him comfortable if it is the worst case, but we're hoping he's still going to be around for a while.

My son has a pool party tonight and I was going to go and stay to visit with some parents, but the way my stomach is I may just walk my son over and go home. Hopefully by tonight I'll be feeling better though. My son doesn't care if I'm there because he'll be playing with his buddies and the pool is literally right out our back yard, so he can walk home when he's done. We'll see how it goes.

I'm glad it's the afternoon, but today could still be a long day. I hope everyone is having a great Friday!!
