Was not up to exercise today... but....

Friday, February 12, 2010

Ok so I didn't much FEEL like exercising today... but... I got up and with eyes closed shut began my morning routine... lol.. 5 minutes into it I was wide awake and singing away! Funny how that works, isn't it... And.... I didn't much feel like doing it when I got home either... BUT.... I started and after 5 minutes... yes, you guessed it... I was singing away with the tunes from my ipod.. (my poor hubby, all he hears is me wailing!!)

It really does make a difference in my day. I am more calm and relaxed all day, and I have more energy, when I exercise..

I wish I had learned this sooner in life.

A one day thing

Thursday, February 11, 2010

Well, my rut seemed to be only a one day thing... thank goodness for that or this would have been a heck of a day... lol

I had to drive my boss to work and back today - not such a horrible thing, he's a good guy. Then, my assistant calls and says she will be late, she was rear ended (I asked and she said she was ok) -- well, 2 hours later, her husband calls and says she is in the hospital and will not be in.... Replacements do not come a dime a dozen, especially when most of the other managers worked during the day. Made for a little bit of a stressful afternoon. I am thankful that I have wonderful employees that help me out in my hours of need.

What can I say? Another day another dollar. Life goes on.

Sorry I haven't been checking in with you folks yesterday and today... my days have been verrrrrry full and I need to add a few hours to my day. :-)

Wishing you all the best and I hope that you are staying focused and motivated. Life is short and WE need to START LIVING IT!

Feel like I am in a rut!

Wednesday, February 10, 2010

Is it possible to exercise, eat right and feel like you are in a humdrum rut?

I don't know why I feel like this. I feel like every day is the same.

I exercise
I work
I eat healthy
I come home
I exercise more
I have dinner

and my day is done. I didn't work today but my day was basically the same.. I only replaced the work part with appointments and errands.

I read, listen to music, play with my dog, see friends and the usual stuff, but I feel like I am in a rut and don't understand it today.

I am hoping this is just a one day thing and tomorrow will give me back my zest! I really do not like feeling like I am in a rut. Maybe I am sick of winter.. that must be it. I hate the cold and this cold weather seems like it is lasting forever. brrrrrrr!

I am going to the casino on sunday with hubby and a friend.... I'm gonna check with the son to see if he'd like to come too. That is certainly going to be fun... me and my penny slots. I can last hours with just twenty bucks...

I think I'll go exercise, I know that will make me feel better. It always does.

    GREAT that you are going to exercise.
Yesterday was my bommed day and it only lasted one day, so hopefully yours will be the same.
Let me know if there is anything you need or that I can do to help.
We all have donw times, letting people know and accpeting their support is the way out and you did that, so feel proud of yourself.

Calorie Distribution

Tuesday, February 09, 2010

I've come to the conclusion that calorie distribution is a huge problem of mine.

I eat breakfast every day and it averages about 300 calories
I eat lunch every day which is about 300 calories
I have a snack for about 100 calories
and dinner is about 400 calories

This puts my at 1000 calories a day... and I end up snacking more at night because I know I can without blowing my calories but I don't want this habit. I almost feel like I am saving my calories for night time 'just in case' (just in case of what, I do not know).

I have always believed that eating at night is not good for your body.... but here on sparkpeople I've read that it doesn't matter when your calories come... I just can't seem to get that. Seems if you had a bigger breakfast and lunch and a lite dinner, your body would be able to to burn more of the calories through activity and it would be more nourished to do just that, rather than eating and going to bed.

My calorie distribution needs to change. I think I should be using more for breakfast and lunch and less at night. Wouldn't that make more sense? Then my body would have a chance to use the calories up, instead of sleeping on them.

Does this make any sense? I don't feel like I am starving my body or anything. I am just getting hungry by the time lunch rolls around and since I am in this exercise before dinner mode, my stomach is growling by the time I sit down for dinner. But in between I don't notice anything.

I am open to suggestions and I hope you all are doing well.

are you eating within your calorie range? 1,000 calories is low. i told my trainer that i was on a 1,200 calorie a day intake .. and he was like .. 'that's bordering on starvation'. ummm.

i also heard somewhere (not sure!) that breakfast was suppose to be the biggest meal of the day.

are you getting your fruits & veggies?

if your stomach only growls at you as you sit down to dinner... i think you are okay. just take note if it is growling at you when it's NOT meal time.. and, then you'll have to find a great snack to snack on.

Monday Doledrums

Monday, February 08, 2010

Today was just a typical Monday for me. Nothing exciting happened. I got up late and could not get my morning routine in and I felt it ALL DAY. Needless to say, the first thing I did when I got home was exercise. The difference is amazing... not just in how I feel, but how I think of myself. If I miss my morning exercise, I am bummed. Not mad or down on myself, just like, I feel like I let myself down. Although I know there are just going to be days that exercise does NOT happen, I don't want to skip a day and fall backwards... one day CAN lead to 2, 2 CAN lead to 3 and so on... I'd rather NOT take that chance of missing it. I'd like to just keep it up and strengthen my NEW HABITS...

Tomorrow should be interesting... hubby is leaving early early early for business and I do not hear alarm clocks.. of ANY KIND. I only hope I can get up early enough on my own to exercise before work.... I really enjoy it in the morning, but I cannot be toooooo late for work. I have to practice what I preach ya know.

Still under on calories for the day... maybe if I burn more calories I will get hungrier durning the day and eat more.

Gotta run, the puppy needs attention!!

    I know how you feel about feeling bummed if I miss my morning exercise. Not mad at myself, bt "out of sorts."
Be careful not to beat yourself up about it, but instead focus on the days you DO exercise an dhow well you are treating yourself then.
Hope tomorrow morning goes well!
Smiles, Mo
