Bread!

Saturday, April 05, 2014

I went bread crazy yesterday. I don't eat bread often. So, after getting some bagels for a gathering yesterday, I ate 3 plus cream cheese. I seriously bread binged. It was my dinner. I was still within my calories, as I had a really good burn in the morning at the gym. But still, I was worried to step on the scale this morning. But I was happy to see that the scale went down and not up. I've seem to have found my stride lately. I'm sure it's because of the extra effort I'm putting in at the gym and all the water I've been chugging!

Off to the gym I go! I've got a family birthday party today for my husbands grandmothers 85th. After that I have book club.... and I didn't get the book read- but I'm still excited to go hang out with friends. Today is going to have it's challenges (food wise) but I'm determined to make it a great day!

Ready, set, GO! emoticon

Hubby is working it too! Yay!

Friday, April 04, 2014

Yesterday was a productive day for me. I got my workout in early and pushed myself enough to really feel like I accomplished a great burn. I chose good foods and stayed under my calorie goal. I drank all of my water (forgot about my green tea though). I overachieved on my step goal ending at over 13K. I was pleased with my number on the scale this morning. My positivity quote pic of today seemed fitting:

Hubby has decided to join my gym, which I'm really excited about. His old job kept him extremely active. He was lifting 150 pound boxes and running all over a giant warehouse. It also got him out on the road a lot too. So now that he's a stay at home dad, he's got a completely different day. It's productive with kids and house work and while that's definitely busy work, it's not what he was used to. Needless to say, he has been in a bit of a rut and I've been trying to encourage him to workout everyday since the start of the year. So, I was very happy when he went on his own to check out my gym yesterday and asked me to add him when he got home. No questions asked from me, I added him the moment I walked into the gym yesterday. I think this will really help him in so many ways!

Still trucking along!

Thursday, April 03, 2014

I'm starting to feel better. So I'm going to skip the doctor unless I start to feel worse. I hate being sick. But I can still workout and don't feel like I'm going to pass out or anything- so I think I'm fine. I completed my full workout yesterday, accomplishing all my steps. I was under my calorie goal, but did not have the best dinner possible. I need to make better choices, just because I'm under my calorie goal does not mean I had good food. I'm also trying to focus more on my water intake. I had challenged myself to drink two cups of green tea a day. I was doing really well with it and now am suddenly slacking. Never to late to start!

I work late tonight, so I'm going to hit the gym this morning and then hurry to get ready for work. Hopefully before I leave for work I can get hubby to take my progress photo and get it posted.

Still sick, kinked neck... but still moving!

Wednesday, April 02, 2014

So, I didn't make it to the doctor yesterday. I slept away the day. I do feel a little better today. I have a horrible kink in my neck though. It made it very hard to check my blind spots as I drove to work this morning. I need to find a primary care doctor who can see me when I get sick with things like this. Right now my primary care doctor is still listed as my OBGYN, and unless you're pregnant he's hard to get in to see. So, I'm going to start my search and see who I can get in to see- cause I'm sick of being sick. I plan on hitting the gym after work no matter what- I'll just be sure to listen to my body and not push myself too hard.

My daily challenge...

Tuesday, April 01, 2014

So here we are... April 1st... my first day of my new challenge to weigh daily. It's more of an experiment for myself more than anything... I've struggled with the ability to weigh myself daily in the past... so I'm doing a little test to see how I'll do this time around. Obviously, I'll be cognisant of my outlook and if I find it's depressing me, I'll stop. My hope and plan is that it will be a motivator and not a de-motivator for me.

Tuesdays will be my official weigh in days... so that's when I'll be updating my ticker. My goal is just one pound per week... an achievable goal! My hope is, this will get me into the habit of weighing each day and blogging each day.

I'm so sick. I've been fighting it for a week now. I am definitely going to the doctor today- as I don't think this is just a virus that will go away on it's own. Still staying positive and trying to be as active as possible, but I'm going to try to take it easy today and let my body rest. Hope everyone has a fantastic day!!
