Yesterday was out of control. I worked past my usual lunch hour and went and worked out at 1p instead of noon. Then it dawned on me I had a meeting at 2p I was late to, so I went straight to that meeting without eating lunch. When I got back I didn't have time to go get lunch so I munched on grapes instead. (Yesterday was the day my fresh fruits and veggies gets delivered to my workplace so at least I had something!)

When I got home, didn't have time to make dinner as I was going to Film on the Rocks. I knew I could eat something there. I got a chicken burrito and a water. I downed another water later with half a bag of m&ms. I need to work on keeping track of time.

This morning I'm dragging big time. Went to Jamba Juice to get my fav oatmeal and back on track hopefully. Have another meeting this morning but it is in the morning so should be ok. DH is going fishing so I have to figure out dinner. He didn't get all my groceries I needed so a couple items are missing from my recipe. DOH. Ck salad sandwiches tonight!

Challenge for the Month

Tuesday, August 03, 2010

My challenge for this month for myself is to exercise at least 5 days a week and record my minutes on the Spark America page for my city. I set my home page to the Spark America page so I won't forget.

Last night I got 8 hours sleep. I still feel tired but considering the last 5 days I've stayed up til midnight or beyond, I have some catching up to do.

Didn't make it to the grocery store but I did make a list and am sending dh to the store today since he is not working.

"I gotta feelin'. Today's going to be a good, good dayyyyyy!"

    Sounds like a pretty good challenge! I, too, struggle with the 8 hours of sleep but know it is so important. Good luck! emoticon

Tough Day #2

Monday, August 02, 2010

Well, last week I did awesome with food and working out. Then came the weekend downward spiral. DOH. Weekends are my worst. I also got into a really good book this weekend so I stayed up way too late every night reading the darn thing. It caught up with me today at my workout class. I usually have a banana about an hour before I go but I need to go grocery shopping so I had a plum instead. It didn't fill me up. So I was dragging bad through the class. Of course eating out last night and having 2 desserts (yes I was bad) didn't help. I haven't been to Country Buffet in a long time. Now I know why. :0

Goals for today:

eat healthy-Since we are out of groceries, I ate out at Garbanzos but I got the kids meal (1/2 pita no rice) with apples instead of chips. For dinner will be a Cooking Light recipe chicken salad sandwich with lettuce and avocado. Perhaps a side of beets I cooked up over the weekend.

Goals for the week:
Eat Healthy.
Get on target with my weekend eating!
Get to bed on time!

Get to the grocery store!

  Don't be too hard on yourself. Life is about living and you SHOULD eat healthy but you should also enjoy a treat once in a while. As long as it doesn't become a habit, enjoy your treats.

Dancing your A** Off

Tuesday, July 13, 2010

I was flipping through the channels tonight and saw the show Dancing your A** Off was on. From what I could figure out, it is a show where people who have weight to lose compete in various dance styles with a fit dance partner/choreographer. They work out and practice up until the event and then 3 judges watch their performance and rate them on technicality and entertainment of the dance. While I was sitting there watching it, I thought to myself, I shouldn't be sitting here watching people try to lose weight on tv, but rather out hitting the pavement myself. So, I called the dog, put on her leash and we went for a long walk in the cool evening air. Felt great!

I also tried Wahoo's Fish Tacos for the first time tonight. Interesting flavor and a nice change from the usual places we eat out.

    Great job! I always seem to get motivated by weird things like that! Especially, when I'm working out! I hope you keep up the great work.

    Moments like that are priceless - if we could all keep that "I should go do something active" in our minds more often, being healthy wouldn't be such a struggle. Good for you!

Wahoo's Rocks!

Tough Day

Thursday, June 17, 2010

I didn't get a very good night's sleep last night due to Jake's night terrors. I get to meet with the auditors this morning at work. But after the auditors will be my fav yoga class so that is what is spurring me on. I'm a bit flaky at the moment so hopefully I can pull it together to make it through the rest of the day.

Thinking about the big weekend. Jake and I decided to take dad fishing on sunday. We'll probably go to green mtn reservoir his fav spot to fish. But first, hopefully, on Saturday I can get in a nice hike with Molly. I also need to hang posters for an upcoming concert. Practice ice skating with Jake. Busy, busy.
