TGIF! I am in an "I don't care" phase right now. I haven't felt well this week so I haven't been eating right or exercising and just haven't cared. I need to care because this is how I gain everything back that I've lost so far. I looked back the other day and since the beginning of the year I'm down about 8 pounds, so I need to keep that off and keep doing healthy things. It's so hard when you're body and mind are tired and you just don't want to do anything. I'm wondering if this is the depo shot taking hold already. If so, that makes up my mind that I don't want another one. If it's just from not feeling well, then hopefully I'll get out of this funk soon.

On a more positive note, I have a 3 day weekend ahead and I'm not super busy. We are having some family over to watch the first Husker football game tomorrow afternoon, but that's about it. So, I think if my brain isn't still throbbing and I can get my can-do attitude back I'm going to try to get a bunch of my homework knocked out and some workouts in. I also want to plan some lunches and dinners for next week. I need to quit getting junk for dinner just because my family whines. They need to eat healthy too, so they'll just deal with it. Maybe that's where the "I don't care" attitude will come in handy. :)

I hope everyone has a great Friday and a great weekend!!

I want to curl up in a ball in the corner of a dark room today. My head is killing me. I'm hoping it doesn't turn into a migraine, but we'll see. I just need to make it through the next 2 days of work, then I have a 3 day weekend. I get to leave work a little early today too, so maybe that will help. We're going to my daughter's volleyball game, so a little noisy, but no thinking.

No workout this morning because my head may have exploded if I moved. I'm still holding out hope that I'll feel better this afternoon and want to do it. Last night I didn't get any activity in either because I was so tired. I think whatever is causing this headache has me fatigued too because I've been nodding off on the couch at 7, and I can't even read for my classes because I'm so tired. I'm taking some sinus meds today and hopefully whatever I have going on will be knocked out of my system quickly.

I hope everyone else is having a wonderful Thursday!!

So I've had a win and a fail already this morning and it's not even 10 a.m. My win was getting up to do my workout this morning. My fail was eating a frosted sugar cookie that a co-worker gave me. So, I've added the cookie to my diary for the day and man are my calories high, and I haven't even added in dinner yet! I may have to do some adjusting for the day as it goes on. Maybe save one of my work snacks for this evening to help on the calorie budget. I have no clue what we're having for dinner, but my hubby isn't going to be home, so maybe we can just do a sandwich night and I can have a salad or something. Darn you Minion cookie!! I knew I shouldn't eat it, but it was staring at me with that one eye, and was yellow and delicious. If I can keep that to my only bad treat I should be okay. And now wouldn't it figure that my stomach is upset, you'd think I'd learn!

I am feeling a little better today, still a small headache, but nothing that stopped me from working out. I am going to get home a little earlier so hopefully if we do an easy dinner I can get my homework done and get a little more activity in. I will work off that cookie! My evening activity has been lacking lately, along with my will power, so I need to work on those 2 things. I made a goal for myself to get at least 3 days of either walking or biking for at least 30 mins in the evenings, so I'm going to try to stick to that. I'm going to write down some September goals too and see how well I do with them this month. Having the goals does help for my exercise, but my eating is where I struggle.

I hope everyone has a great Hump Day!! Only a few more days to the weekend!

September Goals:
Exercise at least 16 days
Walk or ride my bike at least 30 mins 3 days per week (12 total)
Plan healthy meals ahead of time for dinner and lunch
Eat at least 2 different veggies and fruits per day
Track no matter how bad the day might be!

01 September 2015

After my fun weekend, now I'm exhausted. Yesterday I was tired, but didn't realize how tired until I got home. I was physically and mentally just done. This morning I was going to try to get up and go for an early morning walk, but my sinuses were plugged and I had a terrible headache, so I opted for the extra hour of sleep. I think this is from being at the fair over the weekend and my allergies are kicking my butt now. Meds are on board, so hopefully I will nip this in the bud quickly because tomorrow I need to get my morning workouts started back up again.

I have good foods to eat today and I'm going to try to eat well this evening. I haven't been eating the best lately, and it's all about the effort I'm putting into it. I haven't been making the effort to eat better and plan healthy dinners, so I get out what I put in. My hubby is trying to eat healthier again, so maybe that will help, but he's never any help planning meals. He hates veggies, so it's difficult to make something healthy that he and the kids will eat. Right now I'm trying to stick to moderation, but my will power is the struggle there.

Well, here's hoping I can get some exercise and good eating in today! Have a great Tuesday!!
