And today I worked

Friday, April 29, 2011

Today was my long work day, 10 hours. It sucks getting to work when it is dark and leaving when its dark. Bring on Summer!!!!

My eating was good again today. I am learning how to eat filling calories! For example, tuna and rice. Low calorie and soooooo filling. I had it for my lunch today and didn't need my snack until 4 hours later, much later than usual. Also, peanut butter on toast for breakfast. Full until morning snack time! Eating filling foods helps me to keep to my calorie range! YAY! And I have room for dessert. Double YAY!

Tomorrow morning I am off to a boxing class and then to work for a few hours. Another busy day!

    Wow I hear that. Brown rice is my favorite. I can eat that with anything. I was just about to get back into eating tuna this upcoming week. I was thinking about mixxing it with spicy mustard instead of mayo.

    Whole foods are the best at keeping you feel satisfied longer, while processed junk is no good for that!

    I've had to learn the difference between what keeps me full and what doesn't as well. Its a good feeling to not be hungry. Good for you!

Something is better than nothing, right?

Thursday, April 28, 2011

So this morning I had to drag myself to the pools. I was just not motivated, I didn't want to go and no one could make me. Then I remembered "No one regrets a workout" so I got off my butt and went to the pools. BUT I got there late and only had time for 30 minutes, not the 60 I had planned for. Something is better than nothing, right?

I plan on going to the pools on Saturday after work to make up the extra half hour that I was going to do today...Or I might do a whole hour... We'll see!

Eating was good again today. Lots of protien and fibre and stuff. And dessert. I'm not interested in a life without dessert. Today I toasted 2 jumbo marshmellows, for a 180cal dessert.

In other news, jumbo mashmellows? Have you guys seen these? I had to buy them from the American Food Shop, who imports lots of food from the states. They are MASSIVE. I couldn't even believe it, then I had to buy them.

The assignments are slow going still. I'll try and chip away at them, an hour or 2 a night.

My car still isn't working, so I am car sharing with the boyfriend and the father. Hopefully we can get a Mr Man out to fix it tomorrow and hopefully it is a very easy problem to fix!

    I agree. Any exercise is better than none at all.

    I want you to know how funny it is to me that you, in New Zealand, can only get obscenely large marshmallows at the American Food Shop. I definitely had a giggle over that. I'm calling that an international win for American stereotypes! And I agree. What is life without dessert?

    Absolutely, something is better than nothing! 30 minutes is not too shabby, in my humble opinion.

Yes, I have seen those ginormous marshmallows! I had to do a double take when I saw them. I wanted them sooooo bad, but decided against it. Hubby won't eat them, and I would eat them all in a short amount of time. Not good!

    Congrats for going to the pool even though you really didn't want to. You are right, something is better than nothing. Sounds like you are on the right track.

I've been a good girl today!

Tuesday, April 26, 2011

emoticon I went to my class this morning. I think I pushed it a bit hard because I felt really sick in the middle of the class. I got some fresh air and let my heartrate come down and rejoined the class. I finished though!

emoticon My eating has been good so far today. I had 1 piece of toast with peanut for breakfast before my class. After class I had a can on lite tuna over a serving of lemon rice. Tasty and appealing to humans and kitties alike. I need to snack on fruit today since I have been lacking in the fruits and veggies department. I will cook dinner tonight so that I can control what it is, and the veggie content!

emoticon My assignment doing hasn't started yet, but it will soon. This round of assignments is really getting me down and making me feel stupid. The otheer girls in the course are telling me they are feeling the same way though. But this feeling of stupidity is what usually sets me off into a depressive spiral, so I need to make a breakthrough soon, for my sanity

emoticon My car won't start :( I hope it isn't anything serious because all the money I have saved is for my holiday and I would rather go without my car than go without my holiday!!!!

    You're doing great! Keep your chin up with the assignments. Others are having problems too, so don't go feeling stupid because you're NOT!

Hope your car is an inexpensive fix.

I don't regret my choices

Tuesday, April 26, 2011

The past 3 days of eating have been less than impressive. Its OK, it happens. I don't regret the chinese food, or the easter egg, or the soft drinks instead of water. It happens. OK I kinda regret it because I feel terrible in my tummy.

I am, however, worried about getting back on track. I am planning on eating a healthy dinner tonight with lots of veggies to give me a kick start, and I have pretracked my breakfast and snack for tomorrow. I am hoping that is enough to get me back on track and where I wanna be. And the memory of this sick feeling!

I am also skipping my workout today. I know I shouldn't, but I'm still kinda sick and I would rather take one more day to get better than push myself and get sick again.

Tomorrow I have a class to go to, and I really like/hate the class so I will be going!

Can someone check on me tomorrow, to make sure I'm eating well and went to my class?

    Looks like -from the more recent blog- that you got yourself back on track. Good job! An off day here and there won't hurt you in the long run...I don't think so anyway!

    A set-back is just a bump in the road. Pick yourself up, dust yourself off, and keep going :-) emoticon

Ode of Remeberance

They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old:
Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn.
At the going down of the sun and in the morning,
We will remember them.

Thank you to all our servicemen and women who gave their lives in the past, and those who continue to risk their lives now.

Thank you to my Poppa, who passed 10 years ago, for his service in Korea (Unfortunatly this is the best photo I have of him on my computer, because he died before digital cameras. I have a lot of photos of him in photo albums though)

Thank you to my Grandad, who I treasure, for his service in WWII

Thank you to my Great Grandfather, for giving his life is WWII

Thank you to my father, for his continued service in the NZ military

    Happy ANZAC Day. Great to see that you celebrate three generations of service in your family.
