09 June 2015

It's going to be a busy day today at work, so hopefully it goes by fast. :) I'm hoping to get a workout in after work today, just not sure which one. I would run, but it's supposed to be almost 100 and I know I'll be miserable and dried out when I'm done, so a DVD will be better. My son has baseball tonight too, so it will be a warm game, and this will probably be the only time I'm glad we are playing a late game. I don't mind the heat, but I know I'll need to shower when we get home, which will mean getting to bed even later. Oh well, it's not the first time I'd be yawning through the day.

My eating hasn't been terrible, but I did bake cookies over the weekend so I've been eating those up. Thankfully they are now all gone, so no more cookies in the house, for now at least. I need to get back on track with eating healthy snacks at home. I can do great at work, but then come home and eat cookies.

I hope that everyone is having a great Tuesday!!

08 June 2015

I'm back! I haven't been on here since last Tuesday and now I'm ready to get back to it. I took off work the end of last week and was busy, but now I'm back to my normal routine. I didn't weigh in this morning, so I'll see if I'm brave enough to step on the scale in the next couple of days. I've been following my diet, but with my diet I can still eat sugar, I just have to watch the other ingredients, so I haven't been doing the best. Then last week TOM hit and I was miserable with endometriosis pains and craving all sorts of junk that I couldn't have. Did you know that you can make cookies without flour? I do now, and that wasn't good to find out when I was craving junk. Oh well, I just have to take it and move forward.

I did get exercise in during my time off. Yesterday I went for a run with my couch 2 5K app and it was a 20 min. straight run, well jog. I truly didn't think I could do it, but once I had made it halfway through I just kept telling myself that I could do it. My leg started cramping a little toward the end, but I made it the full 20 mins. I felt so good to have done it. It makes me think that I'll be ready to run the 5K on the 4th. I won't be setting any records, but if I can run the whole thing I'll be happy.

Today will be strength, so I'll get that done this evening. My eating has been pretty good today, hopefully I'll keep that up. Maybe if I can keep getting my exercise and eating right this week the scale won't be so scary next week. ;)

I hope everyone has had a great Monday!!

There's no way around it, I'm tired today. I've been trying to perk myself up, but it's just not happening. I also want to eat everything today, maybe TOM is to blame. Being on my diet I can't eat everything, so I guess that's a good thing, but it's challenging because I really want to cheat. I have to keep repeating to myself "You're in week 4 and you feel good. Cheating won't make you feel any better."

Yesterday after work I went for a walk/run and it felt great to get out and get moving. I went 3.36 miles and was tired and my knees hurt, but it was worth it. Today we'll see. I would like to do a strength workout after work, but it will depend on how tired I am when I get home, a nap may win out.

Tonight my son has baseball so it will be a late night, but I took tomorrow off work to do something with my son since my daughter is in DC, so I'll get to sleep in a little bit. I don't know what we're going to do, he thought about mini golf or something and we'll probably grab lunch, and he wants to watch a movie that his sister wouldn't like. We'll see where the day takes us. :)

I hope everyone has a great day!

01 June 2015

My daughter left for her school trip to DC today. She was excited and I'm sure she'll have lots of fun, but I'm hoping the rain lets up for them while they're visiting some of the memorials and monuments. We dropped her off at 1:30 a.m., so it's going to be a long, sleepy day. I opted for a little caffeine this morning and had coffee instead of my decaf green tea.

I had a great weekend. Yesterday was a test for me with the diet because we had the BBQ for lunch and we ate out for dinner. I brought a couple of things with me to the BBQ so I was full and not tempted to grab something I shouldn't have. The BBQ really didn't bother me not to eat everything that everyone else had, I didn't feel deprived at all. But, eating out was harder. We went to Perkins (breakfast served all day) and I thought about getting something with eggs, but I knew I'd be tempted to get pancakes, so I stuck with a salad. The salad had no dressing, but I still enjoyed it and left feeling just full enough. Typically I would have left feeling miserable from eating so much, then when we went shopping afterwards I would have felt horrible. I'm starting week 4 so I have to remember how good it felt to have energy after dinner and not feel like my stomach was going to explode. I also ended up a pound down this morning, so that's a bonus of not gorging myself yesterday.

I got a run in on Saturday, which was nice because it was a beautiful day. I ended up doing 3 workouts last week, which was 1 more than my goal of 2. This week I want to get 3 workouts in also. I really need to keep up with the running because we've got a 5K coming up on July 4th and I'm not even close to being able to run the whole thing and that's my goal. Last year I ran the whole thing, my time wasn't great, but I just wanted to be able to do the whole thing without walking and I did it. I want to do the same this year. The time doesn't matter much to me, it's crossing that finish line knowing I pushed myself and did my best that will make me happy.

I hope everyone has a great Monday!
