26 December 2017

I finally weighed in this morning, and I've just gone up since Thanksgiving and it was time to make the gain official. Hopefully, with some work I will get this back down. I am going to take some measurements too because I feel like that is a better way to really know my progress.

Today will not be a great day, I was up at midnight and pretty much all through the night feeling sick to my stomach. I don't know if it's a bug, something I ate, or just eating so much junk over the last few days. Now I have to work and I'm exhausted, it's going to be a long day. I do have all of my junk food packed up for work and if it doesn't get eaten there, I'm throwing it all out.

My husband is starting this week trying to make some better choices too. Our shopping this weekend was not great because of all of the people at our house and making a quick trip, but we'll just make due this week. We have our plan for shopping next weekend and we're going to try to figure out what to make for healthy dinners and lunches. We're both ready to make a change and have a goal of our family trip in June. I will never wear a bikini, but if we're able to do activities and not get winded or just feel tired after a few minutes, I'll be happy.

I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas holiday!!

Today is my Friday!! Woo Hoo! I'm excited to have the long weekend, but it will be super busy, so it won't feel like a long weekend. It will be nice to see family and celebrate Christmas, and I'm going to make sure to enjoy any downtime I get.

I know this weekend will be full of food and drinks, I'm just going to do my best to be mindful and not overfill myself and only take what I really want, and when I'm full I'm done. I'm not making as many treats as I normally do either, then maybe the crowd will eat it all before I even have a chance at it. We will have at least a couple of healthier options too, so I'll try to eat more of those and less of the unhealthy things.

Starting next week my husband is trying to get back on track and I'm going to be right there with him. I'm really battling my sinuses right now, but I think healthy eating and exercise will help push me through and just mentally make me feel better.

I probably won't be here until next week, so I hope who is celebrating has a wonderful Christmas holiday! Stay safe. :)

I had to learn to give myself allergy shots today, not fun, but at least it's not painful. I was really nervous to do it, but it went okay. I ended up grabbing something to eat though afterward, so that wasn't good. I have healthy foods otherwise for the day, so I'm going to try to stay on track.

Last night I didn't eat a whole lot for dinner, then went out shopping, and came home to wrap the last of the gifts. The next two days are going to be long work days, then tomorrow evening we go to my Mom and Dad's for dinner and presents. I'm glad we worked out a time to get together. This week has been so busy, and I haven't sat and watched much TV, which is a good change. No exercise, but not much sitting around in the evenings either. Hopefully next week, since it's not so busy, I'll be able to get myself do the workouts again.

Tomorrow is my last day of work for the week. I'm so glad. I'm ready for the weekend, just not the slew of people coming. I am thankful though that my family, just us, will have a quiet Christmas Eve. I kind of hope we get a little snow to have a white Christmas, but it doesn't sound like we will get anything.

Well, it's time to work and get on with the day. Have a happy Hump Day!!

19 December 2017

I'm feeling really tired today. I don't know if that's from a new medication I'm on, the allergy shots yesterday, or just being up early and working late yesterday. I am feeling crumby with my sinuses too, so that could be it. I slept right through my alarm this morning for my workout, so that got blown out of the water. No time this evening for a workout either because of a meeting after work, then I have some shopping to get done. Tomorrow is another day to try to get the workout in.

I'm going to hold out hope that I can make it to the New Year with no huge gains and I'm just going to keep trying my best to eat healthy and workout when I can. After the New Year hits it should start getting easier to get the workouts in and stick to healthy eating. I'm ready for my schedule to slow down a bit. With my husband starting a new program at that time too we can help each other.

I'd better get back to work. Happy Tuesday!!

What a weekend! I know I ate too much, but I was trying to eat more mindfully, and when I was full, I was done. Hopefully I can do that this coming weekend, when we have a house full of people and my stress level starts to max out.

I didn't get any exercise in over the weekend, but I didn't sit very much. We were busy cleaning, shopping, and baking. This week I'm going to try to get workouts done, but I'll have to get up early for them, so we'll see how that goes. I'll be working late every day, so it's a lot harder to get my workouts in when I get home, and I've still got some things to get done before the weekend that I'll have to do in the evenings. At least I won't be just sitting in front of the TV after work.

My husband told me that after Christmas he really wants to get more serious about getting healthy, I was glad to hear that. It makes it so much easier when he's on board and wants to make healthy dinners, but he tends to go overboard and only want plain chicken and a vegetable, then he's starving and gets sick of chicken really fast. And he'll not eat all day, then overeat later. I've tried to get him to look into different ways of eating that might work better for him, and I think he's finally really listening and trying to find something that he can stick with. I'm excited to get both of us on the right track.

I hope everyone is having a great Monday!
