Busy week

Tuesday, December 03, 2013

Today I am feeling how busy this week is. I am taking my dinner break now as I have a meeting for work tonight. My job is to help support our Deacon board at the church I attend. This coming Saturday we are holding a Christmas store for families with low-incomes to come and purchase gifts. The families are families we know well from our community center in their neighborhood. Today I spent the day pricing gifts and working on making snowflakes. Tomorrow is more snowflake making. But I get to act like a kid again.
Today due to time constraints is a rest day. Tomorrow I will own it and kick my own butt!


rough day

Monday, December 02, 2013

Yesterday was a rough day. I attended religious services per normal, but about 30 minutes in I felt ill. Eventually stomach won shall we say. Felt better after lots of burping. Went to go to the Y to do an eady workout but the closed early due to the holiday weekend. Ate some yummy chili for dinner and some garlic bread to get my calories up. Then had an easy night. Thankful it seems to have just been a gas bubble as I am feeling fine to day and will be hitting the gym in a while. I am excited to run today.

Disclaimer: I live in LA, California. We don't have a real winter. People freak when it is cloudy even more when it rains.

Today was a good reminder of why I am doing this. As my DH and I were getting out our "winter" clothes I found pants I haven't worn in a while due to them being to small. I decided to try them on. One pair fit almost perfect and the second pair I need to lose a little more (less than 5 lbs) for them to fit. I have dropped a pants size since I have restarted on Sparkpeople.
As my reward DH and I went out to dinner at a restaurant with lots of healthy options and then to an outdoor mall to see the Christmas tree and lights. While it was a bit crazy it was beautiful as well. Plus we made a date with each other to ride our bikes around nearby neighborhoods to see more lights on houses.
It is so good to be able to be active again with DH and enjoy life along with my body.

baby steps

Today is my rest day. Ironically I spent a good amount of the morning getting food ready for tomorrow. Plus two trips to the grocery store. I chose to walk instead of drive as it is 3/4 of a mile round trip, doing well on mynfood plan but need to eat more in the morning and figure a good high protein snack for afternoon. I can't have nuts and only can have yogurt twice a week due to lactose intolerance. I welcome suggestions.

    What about eating an apple with Sunbutter? Carrots and a hardboiled egg? Hummus and crackers? Edamame? Those are all on a list of foods with protein given to me by my dietician that are within your restrictions.

    It's great that you got some waling in going to the grocery store. Are there any protein bars that don't have nuts or dairy in them?

I have had a good day. Sore from strength training yesterday due to squats then running today at the gym. As I deal with the pain I am reminded anything of true worth requires some pain as pain is part of change. Looking forward to a rest day tomorrow to recover.
