So yesterday sucked with a nasty migraine!! But I got on the treadclimber for the first time in a long time and did a 20 minute workout. It felt great to sweat and I actually really enjoyed it! It has been some time since I last used that machine in my basement...but I think it needs to do more than collect dust!!

My headache went away in the morning after some coffee, and I still don't have pop in the house so I am proud of myself. On the right path!

Last night baby girl took forever to fall asleep, but once she got there she slept all night!! It has been awhile since she last did that. I really enjoyed sleeping all night and getting the rest I needed. Now on to face this Friday!

    Isn't is amazing what just a little extra sleep can do? My hubby lets me sleep in usually on one of his days off but I have a really hard time sleeping once I've been woken up in the morning (by him and little man climbing OUT of it, lol!) But Here and there I have been able to sleep in for an extra hour or so and when I do MY GOODNESS i feel so much more refreshed and ready for the day! haha..

And That's good that your headache went away! Ahhh coffee.. my vice =] I love it! (sucking it down now! haha)

You've TOTALLY got this Friday girl! Rock it out and make it YOURS! =]

Long week

Thursday, April 19, 2012

It has been an extremely long week for me. I have been active, but not actually working out. I have been drinking my water, but not tracking it. I woke up with a migraine this morning, and will be going back to bed after my oldest is off on the school bus. I didn't have any pop yesterday, so I am wondering if that is part of the problem. Although all my pop has been caffeine free, but I still wonder. No pop in the house again today, so lots of water will be drank. I am hoping this migraine goes away so that I can get a good workout in. I really want to since today is one of the least busy days of my week. We will see what happens.

    Aw I'm sorry you have a migraine! Those are NO FUN =/ Hopefully you can rest it off! Way to go on not drinking any soda!!! That very well may be the culprit of the headaches! And the extra water definitely couldn't hurt =] Ditto with the exercise! Maybe the extra heart pumping could flush whatever is going on OUTTA HERE! =]

Favorite quote I thought I would share with you =] A little reminder that it's ALL about the comeback!

So rise, woman, rise!! =D

The last two days...

Sunday, April 15, 2012

So Friday I was supposed to do my workout...and I started it, but the kids needed me. Boo! I did get 10 out of my 20 minutes in, but was so frustrated by the lack of help from my 11 year old that I didn't mark it down. emoticon I know I shouldn't rely on my kids to help with the little ones all the time, but I really only wanted 20 minutes and figured he could do it.

Yesterday I had all the intentions in the world to do my workout, but got busy and hadn't officially put my "me" time on any calendar. I did however track 2/3 of my food eaten for the day! That is a step forward for me! I know I should have finished the rest of the days food, but I once again got busy. We went out to a bonfire and good for me I only drank water and didn't snack on anything!!

Today is the day I get back on track. It is raining outside, but I plan to throw a DVD in and sweat it out!! I am tempted to do two sessions just to make up for the lost days...but one is for certain happening today! In fact...I am getting ready to do one now...gotta pick up the toy mess in the living room and than the play button will be pushed!

I am also planning on tracking my food again today and trying to do it all not just 2/3 of it! Here is to a new day and a good one at that!!


Back on schedule...

Thursday, April 12, 2012

So I didn't plan any real "off" days...but my body told me it needed it I listened. Today I did my workout even though I really didn't want to. I really just wanted to sleep and be lazy, but I got up and did the twenty minutes and am really proud of myself for doing it. I didn't enjoy the workout itself...really feeling blah during it, but feel ok and happy that I did it.

I have my 8 cups of water in today...contemplating another, but don't know if I want to be up all night in the bathroom. Hmmm...

I have signed up for the Stress Busting Challenge... I hope to have it help me out...I really miss my husband and really don't want to be stressed out with the kids, so I need to try something. Plus I need to figure out how to quite smoking...I have tried so many times, and I really want to, I just don't want to at the same time...I know its bad, I know I shouldn't, I know the bad things that come from it...but I am stressed and need to get rid of the stress if I think I am going to be able to quite for good...or figure out a better way to handle the stress...

Tomorrow I am going to work on day 5 of the power of 10...that is the halfway mark! I like that!! I am thinking that after 4 or 5 rounds of the challenge and I will reward myself with a new Firm DVD to switch things up...I have the two with two different workouts, so I am able to keep it different until than. to bed...

    Have you ever tried aids with quitting? Gum or patches or hypnotherapy? (that last one is KIND OF expensive...) Or have you ever heard of chantix? (I think that's how you spell it..) My aunt used it to quit smoking and it worked really well for her! I know that there can be a lot of side effects from it though... (CRAZY dreams, anger issues, etc...) Regardless though, I will just say right here and now that quitting smoking was the SINGLE MOST BEST THING I'VE EVER DONE FOR MYSELF AND FOR MY FAMILY!

I know how ridiculous of an uphill battle it is, quitting smoking. It hurts, it sucks, it makes you want to cry. And especially with being stressed out and that being the entire reason for smoking in the first place! The REASON for smoking is what you must change also.. You need to calm down lady and get some momma relaxing time! How often do you have time by YOURSELF? Maybe you need to make more time for that? (Hard, I know, but DEFINITELY a MUST!)

I bet you there is a quitting smoking sparkgroup here on this site that you could hook yourself up with to help keep you motivated and to find other people in the same place as you!! You CAN DO THIS and WILL DO THIS! It will be hard, but worth EVERY SINGLE OUNCE OF EFFORT!!!! =] We're all here to support you through it! =]

Off day...

Wednesday, April 11, 2012

Today was my off day...I didn't plan it that way...but I woke up this morning just sore! I'm not complaining, I know it is my body changing in a good way...but I don't want to over do it, so I took an off day. Tomorrow I will be back at it!

I made a mistake the other day...I bought iced coffee from the store...just pour over ice and drink...I am addicted and because of this small mistake, I didn't get my water in today. When I make hot coffee in the morning I only have so much and that is that. When I have a supply in the fridge, I don't stop. I have learned my lesson. No more iced coffee, just water emoticon

Tomorrow's plan...I will not drink iced coffee all day! I will drink my water! I will do my day four of the Power of 10! Three simple things that I have done already and will do again. My body is already feeling better just thinking about it emoticon

I got my new computer today...that was exciting...but I don't want to be trapped on it all day, so I am going to set my limits. I feel like a kid again when I say that, but I know that I have to.

Alright...time to get to bed and get some good rest!!

    Setting limits for ourselves is healthy and proactive! Being mothers, we kind of HAVE to practice these things on ourselves! Not only for responsibility purposes, but showing a great example to our kiddos not to revolve around the screen time! (This is something I'M working on!!!!! =] )

We all need rest days! Way to go listening to your body and taking one when you need it! Hitting it hard and getting to the point where your body is SORE totally warrants a rest day =] I hope you enjoyed it! Because now it's time to SWEATTTTTTTTTTT! =D
