21 March 2014

Busy day! But, TGIF!! I'm glad it's a busy Friday, it makes the day go by faster. :)

Yesterday I did couch to 5K in the beautiful weather and with my insterts my foot didn't hurt as bad. I pulled my achilles tendon when I was younger and that pain will always be there. I told my hubby last night that I'm coming to terms with the fact that I will never be a fast runner because of my joint and tendon pain, but I'm okay with that. I'm just happy and grateful that I can get out and run at all, and what a great way to take in the fresh air and sunshine. When we get our bikes that will be a nice change of pace too.

I had a bad eating day yesterday. First I had the Thai food, which was amazing, but who knows how many calories I actually ate. I didn't feel like I did too bad because it was mostly veggies and I didn't use much sauce and left half the rice, but who knows how much oil and salt was in it. Then my hubby didn't get the 1 thing I had pulled out for dinner ready (had to marinate for 2 hours), and we had nothing else thawed and nothing we could even make quickly, so fast food it was. I tried to stick with lower calorie things and did pretty well, but all of the carbs, salt, and grease I ate yesterday was not good. Today will be better.

I'm going to get on here this weekend and make sure I record all my food again. I did so much better last weekend when I did that. It's going to be a relaxed, lazy, cold weekend. :)

Have a great weekend everybody!!

20 March 2014

First day of spring is finally here! It's supposed to get to 60 here today too, but then be cold and possibly snowy this weekend and through next week. Sigh. I guess I'll have to be happy with the nice day we have today.

We're doing our office lunch out today. The other ladies wanted to try to Thai place, so we'll see how that goes. I'm a little worried because I've never had Thai food before, but I'm sure there will be something I like. And if I don't like it at least I can say I tried it. I'm looking forward to going to lunch though, it's always nice to get some time outside of work to laugh with the other ladies.

After work I'm going to try my couch to 5K. I did a workout last night at home with the inserts in my shoes and I didn't feel too bad, but it wasn't as high impact as running. If it hurts to run I'll just walk it, it might take me longer, but I'm going to soak up the sunshine while we have it. I read some articles on running too and I'm going to try to pay attention to my posture and how my feet are hitting the ground when I'm running.

My hubby and I are getting the kids bikes for Easter and he was showing me the types that the kids want last night. We're going to get ourselves bikes too, but we're going to check the pawn shop. I grew up in the country so we rode our bikes on gravel roads, so it will be a whole new adventure to learn to ride a bike in town, with curbs, and cars, and other people. That adventure won't start until after Easter and hopefully by then the weather will be nice.

Well enough of my daydreaming, I'd better get to work. Happy Thursday!

19 March 2014

I had a rest day yesterday, and I needed it. We had some snow and rain move in and by the time I got home my knees and other joints were killing me. I am still achy today, but better. Tonight I'm going to do a strength workout, so it shouldn't hurt my joints too much.

Tomorrow the bosses are watching the office so us office ladies can go to lunch. We are going to a Thai place, it looks like a dive, but we've heard it's really good. I'm going to try to make good choices, but don't know what they have, so I'll have to wing it. :)

I also heard from a friend, who I haven't seen in probably over a year, that she's going to be in town next week. I'm hoping I can meet up with her and some other friends to take her out for her birthday next Friday. I'm sure that will be a somewhat high calorie evening, but I'm not a drinker so I'll probably be DD and have diet soda and water during the evening, so no extra drink calories. I can't be on this journey and never have a night out with high calorie temptations, so I just have to do my best and enjoy my time out, then get back to it the next day. Can't wait though, it will be lots of fun!

That's it for me. Have a great Hump Day!!
