Stress did NOT win out today!

Thursday, December 03, 2009

I walked into a royal mess at work today. Okay, so it wasn't really a big mess, but the boss' boss' boss got involved, so it got to be a LOT more important really quickly. I spent the entire day getting our story straight to tell folks outside of our department. Because of the timing, I didn't have lunch until 2:00 (breakfast was at 7:00!).

I did eat an apple and string cheese around 10. Then I started getting hungry and really had to wait for an answer before I could eat my lunch. So, I ate my carrots while I was waiting. And I had five peanuts. When I finally made it to lunch, all I had left was a sandwich and I was HUNGRY! So, I bought some chips. But I did good...I had the Baked Doritos not the full fat ones that were calling my name!

Came home, made dinner and very purposely used the small plate for mine. Ate that and felt like having a cookie. I logged all of my food to see how many calories I had left. Seventeen. No cookie worth eating has only 17 calories. emoticon

So, I did not eat my cookie. BUT...I was in range for calories today!! First time in five days! So, neener neener stress! I won! Bring it on!! No, wait, don't bring it on. I will retire victorious! LOL!

    Yeah for you!!! You did really, really great on this. All that stress and bad food staring you in the face and you looked the other way. Great job!

    emoticon Way to track those calories! I usually make the mistake of eating first then tracking later. I can see how your plan makes much more sense and leads to success! emoticon

I have a Twin today!

Wednesday, December 02, 2009

Today is my little brother's birthday. We were born in the same in January, him in December. So, for a little over one month, I have a twin. I sent him a note of congratulations...not everyone gets to be twins with me! LOL!

Off to bed so I can get to the gym in the morning....AGAIN!!! Man, I hate that I tell you all that. At least, I hate it at 4:00 in the morning. When I'm done, I don't mind so much! LOL!

    How cool! Well, happy birthday to your brother! I thought at first you were talking about me...sniff, sniff. Hey, what day is your birthday? Mine's in January, too!! Gonna be (cough, cough) 29 AGAIN this year!!!

Won't be long before you'll be lugging out the suitcase full of birthday candles, huh?

    How fun - for you anyway. I'm guessing it wasn't much fun for your Mom to have 2 babies that close in age. LOL

I sorta did it and I did do it and I'm gonna do it!

Tuesday, December 01, 2009

So, for the week of Thanksgiving, my goal was to stay in my calorie range every day except T-day and to stay under 2800 calories that day. I did really good until T-day. After that, I was WAAAY out of calorie range.

I also planned to work out every day. If you count 7 1/2 hours of shopping on Black Friday, I did that.

I did get up this morning and went to the gym! Yay!! I wasn't sure what that dang noise was when the alarm started ringing, but I figured it out. Dang it! LOL!

AND, I'm gonna do it again tomorrow! I like being home with the family at night. Plus, I need to get to the library tomorrow after work. Hope I remember! Planned to go tonight and remembered at 8:00. Library closes at 8:00. Oops!

kay...things to do, Biggest Loser to watch. Later taters!

    I'm still struggling with that get up and get it done thing...but every other day is definitely an improvement over none at all, lol

    You have my admiration for working out before work! I am not a morning person. But on the rare occasion that I do, it makes me SO gun-ho for the day! Great job! I had a good exercise day yesterday with a WATP video in the morning, and then treadmill & bike at the Y followed by a not-to-strenuous swim. I was pooped. Who are you rooting for on the Biggest Loser?

    Good Job, Barb. I also find that working out in the morning works better for me. I also blew it big time around Thanksgiving. I took it as a free for all. What a mistake. I felt horrible, physically and emotionally. Glad I learned my lesson before Xmas. I'll be thinking of you when I am up and exercising at 6:00 tomorrow morning.

I'm telling you so that you can check on me...

Tuesday, December 01, 2009

I'm getting up in the morning and heading to the gym. I was going to today but didn't. The part that sucks, is that I didn't sleep very well after I got back in bed. Shoulda just gone!

So, this time I am telling my spark friends my plans so that when you ask me (and you will ask! LOL!), I can tell you the truth...I went to the gym!

On that note, I'm going to bed so that I get a little bit of sleep before that darn alarm interrupts me...again! LOL!

    So did you???
I got up and did my run, even though it was below freezing and very dark.
Funny, if hubby gets up when I do, that bed looks much less appealing to crawl back into. (He puts off more heat than the furnace, lol) Wonder how I can get him up every morning before me?????

Dang, it was a busy day!

Sunday, November 29, 2009

Got up early and let the dogs out. Tried to get back to sleep, but that didn't happen. Started laundry and an auction for DH on eBay and then took the kids out for breakfast. Off to WalMart to get a gift for the Mitten Tree at our local library and pick up some nails.

Came home, worked on laundry and then hung up the Christmas lights outside. Started more auctions for DH and went to the gym. Came home, started dinner, took a shower, did more laundry, started the last three auctions. Wrapped two presents, served dinner and made sure the kids got their reading and homework done. Sparkin' folks and then I need to make my lunch for tomorrow. Then...I might get to sit down and read the newspaper I bought. Maybe. Might just have to go to bed instead.

See y'all!
