10 February 2015

I'm working hard on resisting some cravings today. I really want chocolate, but I'm just pushing past it. Hopefully if I can resist those cravings for a few days it will get easier and I won't have them so much.

I decided yesterday to start keeping a written journal of how I feel every day. With all of my aches and pains I think keeping the written journal and comparing it with my food entries here will help me figure out if something helps or hurts. I really think if I can keep up with this for a few months I'll at least be able to see a pattern of when I hurt and whether it has to do with my cycle or food or just other factors. The doctor thinks on top of my other issues I have endometriosis. That's another reason for the journal to see how my symptoms act monthly. The bad thing about most of my issues is that there really isn't anything that can be done to fix them, but the good thing is that with healthy eating and exercise the symptoms can be better.

The plan for tonight is to drop my son off at wrestling practice and go home and do at least a 30 minute workout. I've been doing okay with eating at night, the past few days I haven't wanted to snack as much, so I hope that stays with me. :) Have a great day!!

After a weekend full of eating I still feel full today. We went and saw my dad at the rehab facility over the weekend and that was nice. We were able to go to a Lego exhibit and indoor garden with him (the facility transports him) and then went for lunch to a buffet close to the facility to eat. I really didn't eat too much, but then I had 2 pieces of cake. I was so full when we got home that evening that I didn't eat much else.

Sunday we celebrated my niece's 1st birthday with lunch made by my soon to be SIL at her bakery. She made delicious food and again I didn't feel like I ate a ton, but what I did eat wasn't good for me. So now today I'm still feeling the bloat of the salty, sugary foods from the weekend. Luckily we walked quite a bit through the gardens on Saturday and I got a 45 min workout in on Sunday, so hopefully not too much damage was done.

Today is work, then parent teacher conferences for both my kids, so I don't think I'll be getting my workout in this evening. Tomorrow though I shouldn't have any excuse not to get a workout done. Now, if I can keep my eating clean this week too, hopefully this bloat and just general yucky feeling will go away.

I hope everyone has a great Monday!

I got a workout in yesterday, but ate fast food and chocolate, so I guess at least I did damage control with the workout, but I really have to stop with the junk food. Tonight I'm going to try to get a workout in while my shows are on. I found an app that has some free workouts, which is nice because then I can do a workout while I watch TV and have the guidance from the app. I have decided I have to do evening workouts during the week so I just have to make sure that I actually do them, hopefully the app will help keep me motivated.

My ever tightening pants are really making me want to get healthy, but I've been having horrible junk food cravings lately. I keep telling myself that if I just stop eating the junk and eat better foods I'll stop craving the junk, but I've had a hard time making it happpen.

Today is my son's 10th birthday. Where does the time go? The kids got a snow day today too, lucky ducks. He wants cupcakes for his birthday, so I'm going to pick some up on the way home, or this afternoon on my break if it stops snowing and the roads clear up. Even with the cupcakes I'm going to get my workout in and try to eat healthier the rest of the day so I can have one and truly enjoy it instead of just inhaling it.

I hope everyone has a great Wednesday!

02 February 2015

Well, snow over the weekend hampered some of our plans, and rearranged this week a little bit, but we'll manage. It seems like I keep telling myself I need to workout in the evenings, then every night something comes up and I don't do a workout. Tonight is my son's blue and gold banquet for scouts, if they have it, so my hubby is taking him and they are eating there, so I'm determined to get home and get a workout done. Tomorrow my son has wrestling practice and I work late so dinner as soon as I get home means either a late workout or try to get up in the a.m., which won't happen. I really need to get my lazy bum off the couch in the evening and do a workout. There is no reason I can't get a workout in at 7 p.m. I'm not going to the gym, I'm working out at home, so I just need to make myself do it. I really would love to get up in the a.m., but with the combo of pills I'm taking, there is no way I can get up any earlier. I am going to start trying to take my pills earlier in the evening though and see if I could get up. We shall see.

Eating wise, I really want to do better, but I'm having a hard time. I just need to slap my hands when I reach for junk. I'm going to try to eat more fruits and veggies during the day and I'm drinking a glass of tea before bed in hopes that I won't be so tempted to snack right before bed. I got a bread machine for Christmas and I've been using it a lot and finally made my first batch of 7 grain bread, which was delicious and my hubby and son loved it. I'm hoping the lower calorie and more grainy bread will be better for me and will leave me full longer. I'm going to try this year to do more from scratch cooking and learn some new techniques and find some tasty, healthy options. I'm ultimately going to try for better quality foods.

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

30 January 2015

TGIF! I feel like this has been the longest week ever. I'm sure the weekend will feel short though. :)

Tonight we're supposed to go to a surprise 30th Bday party for my future SIL, but my son is sick, so I probably won't make that. Poor kid is so stuffed up and has a sore throat. Then on Sunday we have my niece's 1st Bday party. Next week is my son's Bday, and we are going to see my dad next weekend and go to a Lego exhibit with him. We haven't seen my dad since he went to the rehab facility at the beginning of the month, so it will be good to see the progress he's made. Then the next weekend we're having a Bday celebration for my son. It's going to be a busy few weekends, but they will all be good.

My test result came back okay for my thyroid, so the doc is going to treat the endometriosis and see if that works. My vitamin D is really low so I'm working on getting that up too. So I've got 5 pills and 2 vitamins now to take every day. Hopefully in the next couple of months I can cut out 2 of those pills. :)

I'm really trying to focus on my health right now and what I need to do to treat my body better. I'm going to try to eat more fruits and veggies, especially on the weekend when I slack on it. I'm going to try to exercise more, even when I'm tired. I'm going to write down when I don't feel good and see if the symptoms and things change as I start making healthier choices. I see my gastro doc at the end of April for an annual check up and I really want to have tried to make good changes before I see him. If I don't feel well when I've been eating healthy and exercising that's one thing, but when I'm eating crap and not exercising, how can he take me seriously? Of course you don't feel well if you're eating junk. You get out what you put in.

Okay enough journaling for now, it's way too long as it is. Have a great weekend!!
