26 June 2014

It's been a while since I was here last. I was on "vacation" last Thursday and Friday and didn't log anything through the weekend, then I got sick on Monday and have been battling that ever since. Today is the first day I feel mostly normal, so I'm going to try to get back to the routine. Not feeling good meant I didn't eat well either because I was using food for comfort. I knew it and didn't do anything about it, so now it's time to change that.

I haven't done a workout since Sunday either and probably won't get one done this evening, but hopefully tomorrow I can get something done. I need to get back to that routine, it's too easy to make excuses not to exercise when I've gotten used to not doing it, even though I enjoy it. Next Friday is the 5K I'm running with my hubby and his family, so I need to get back to exercise before I try to do that and make it a few yards and fall over feeling like I'm going to die.

I hope everyone has been doing well and is having a great week so far!

It's my Friday today! I'm so ready for it, but I think the day is going to go super slow. Not that I'm doing anything super exciting in the next couple of days, just hauling kids around, but I'm hoping to get some good workouts and relaxation in. We're still trying to figure out the camping thing. We may have a place that we can get a one night site, but we're not sure yet. I'm actually looking forward to just being out in nature and not having to worry about anything.

No workout yesterday, but I should be able to get one done tonight. My hubby is going fishing this evening though, so depending on when he leaves I may just have to let the family eat while I'm doing my workout. Which is okay with me, but I know my hubby won't like that, he's really big on the family sitting down to dinner together, but I have to work late, so a girl's gotta do what a girl's gotta do. :)

My eating was better yesterday, and I should stay okay today too. I'm worried about the next couple of days though when I'm home. If I can stay busy then I won't be thinking about food and I'm going to try to make my lunch like I would for work that way it's already there and I don't have to think about the other bad things I could have, like fast food. There's not too much junk at home right now, so I'm going to do my best to keep from mindlessly eating the next couple of days.

Have a great Wednesday!!

Twin tornadoes in part of my state yesterday, causing a small town to be wiped off the map and two deaths. So sad. :( It leaves me thankful for what I have. I'm going donate something to the people who've lost everything and I'm sure we'll have a donation box set up here at work. Just tragic. Hug your family and tell them you love them today because you never know when it could be the last time you see them.

In other more happy news, we found out that my BIL and SIL are having a baby girl! So exciting! My son wasn't so excited, he was really hoping for a boy, but he'll be happy to have a new baby around in a few months. My son is the only boy on both sides. I have 6 nieces and no nephews, so someone eventually has to have a boy. :)

No workout today yet. I'm going to see about getting one done this evening, but not sure if I'll have time between working late and baseball. Today may be my rest day, then the rest of the week I have no excuses not to get a workout done. My eating has to get better. I know I've been eating too much junk and I'm going to make a change today, and hopefully it sticks for the rest of the week. We don't have much junk in the house, so that will make it a lot easier.

I hope everyone is having a great Tuesday!!

I hope all the dad's out there had a great Father's Day!! My hubby had to work the night before and the night of, so not much excitement for him.

I did horribly with my eating over the weekend. I've been in one of those hungry slumps, where I feel like I need to eat and just can't get full. I need to take a step back at those moments and tell myself that I know I'm full so I don't need to eat more. I've been trying to keep up with workouts though and getting at least 5 a week, so that's good, but I need to get my effort with food to match my effort with exercise.

This week my son has a class at a local outdoor pioneer museum where he gets to learn about what soldiers did during the civil war. He is a military fanatic so it's right up his alley. I am going to be getting to work a little later and staying a little later so I can drop him off and pick him up during the day, and that actually works well because this morning I got my run in and I should be able to do a workout in the a.m. the next couple days too. I'm taking Thursday and Friday off because I will be running both kids around, since my daughter has volleyball camp this week also and those 2 days they overlap. We might go camping after my son is done with his class on Friday, but for weekends you can only reserve 2 nights for a camping site, not 1 and my hubby has to work Saturday. So we'd basically have to pay for and reserve 2 nights and only use the site for 1. I left it up to my hubby, so we'll see what he decides.

Have a great Monday!!

So I come in to work today and what do I find, a donut and a personal size strawberry rhubarb bread loaf on my desk. Why do people do this to me? Oh well, I already ate the donut, it was my favorite, a chocolate cake donut. I'm going to eat the bread later. I know I have some good options at home for the weekend to keep me in line, so I'm just going to have to stick to it this weekend to make up for some of my poor eating this week.

I went for a run last night and I'm paying for it. I should have waited another day, but today is so windy I wouldn't have gone. I didn't push myself too much though, I walked quite a bit, and was just happy that I got out there and did something. My hubby even told me I need to take some time off, so I must have been visibly sore last night. Tonight I'm doing a DVD, but I'm not quite sure what yet. Sometimes when I get home and look at the DVD's one just stands out so we'll see which one calls to me. :)

My daughter survived her physical yesterday. She ended up with 3 shots, and she wasn't happy with me because I told them to give her the optional HPV vaccine. She's getting so big, where does the time go?

Well, not much other news for today. Have a great weekend!! Have a great Father's Day to all the dads out there!! :)
