Tuesday's Butt was kicked too!!

Wednesday, February 05, 2014

I killed it... yep... again! I don't want to jinx myself, but I'm on a roll. 10,590 steps today! Again, over my goal of 10,000! I didn't work out for that long at the gym today and didn't feel like I really worked as hard as I could have... but still managed to get there and get it done!

I went to dinner tonight with a friend from out of town. We went to Chili's and I was sure to look at the menu early in the day and decide on a few options within my calorie range. I settled for the black bean burger with sweet potato fries. I had a mission at the start of the meal, no appetizer and only eat half of my plate....... I DID IT!!! YAY!! After dinner we went to a movie... I only had about 2 cups of unbuttered popcorn... YAY! In the past I would have ordered the large with extra butter then added salt... not any more!!!

So it was a great day! I was under my calories, drank all my water, made my step goal.... Did you accomplish any of your set goals today?

    You are killin' it! Very inspirational! I love getting the margherita grilled chicken. It's like 750 calories for the whole thing but if you get a take out box when it's delivered and put half in there for later. I'll have to try their black bean burger next.

Keep up the awesome work! You're motivating me! :)

    Wow! You are really kicking butt this week! Kudos to you for making some great food choices at Chilli's. That has always been a tough one for me personally. I love that you had a game plan before going. That is a great idea emoticon and I am going to give it a try the next time I go out to eat.

Keep on having a Kick Butt week! emoticon emoticon

I kicked Monday's Butt!!

Monday, February 03, 2014

Yep! I killed it! Not only was I just under my calories for the day, I also went over my step goal! 11,646 steps! And probably more, as I walked back and forth from the office to my bedroom a couple of times. I've been almost to 10,000 steps for several days, but didn't get over it until today! YAY! That 46 minutes at the gym paid off!

Feeling great! Celebrate your accomplishments today!! emoticon

Super Bowl Sunday!!

Sunday, February 02, 2014

I find this blog title funny... as I'm not watching it at all.... I'm actually at work today. I work every Sunday. I used to do it because it was easier with kids and hubby working (one less day to find a babysitter). Now my hubby is a stay at home Dad, yet I still find myself working Sundays. Guess I've just gotten used to it. I've actually learned to enjoy my Sundays... not a lot going on in the office and I use it as a "catch up" and "prep" day.

So... Super Bowl Sunday! In celebration, the few people that are working today are having a "potluck". I brought Nacho Cheese Sauce and Chips. And I've not had a single Nacho! I'm using the work crockpot, so no worries about the temptation of bringing any leftovers home either! So lots of junk options today and the worst I had was a small amount of spinach artichoke dip (with carrots instead of chips) still within my calorie range!

We have a TV in our breakroom and it's been OFF all day... which is even funnier- everyone was anxiously bringing their Super Bowl Sunday Potluck food... but nobody is watching the actual game on their breaks or lunches.... Which makes me think.... Do we look forward to these "events" simply for food? .... Interesting thought....

Today is my one relax day per week, where I don't hit the gym... I've been challenging myself though to take a long detour everytime I use the restroom (two flights of stairs)... then after I use the restroom I do 10 squats, 10 leg lifts, 10 wall pushups.... You get the gist.... not a bad "day off" if I do say so myself!

Hope everyone is enjoying the game!~

    Hmmm, I need to rethink going to the restroom, I could be getting some extra exercise! And I thought I was the only one who wasn't watching the game.

Have a great week!

Birthday Parties

Saturday, February 01, 2014

Birthday parties..... It's the only time I ever eat cake. My work will sometimes put things out for associates- like cupcakes and I never have any. Today was my nieces birthday. She turned 6. She had a "Frozen" themed birthday- the kids had so much fun. The adults had fun telling jokes and catching up. And yes... I ate cake... and I made sure to not go over my calories for the day!

I've not had sugar in a long time... and as good as that cake tasted, the headache I got after eating it made it soooo not worth it.

Started the day off right, with the gym- lots of water- and errands... Ending the day with 8586 steps. Another great day!

I love Fridays!

Friday, January 31, 2014

For so many reasons, I love Fridays! It's my day off and I get to hit the gym early... totally different crowd day vs. nights. Too many young kids 'horse-playing' in the evenings... man that made me sound old. I digress.... I enjoy Fridays because I get to spend time with my kids! I am a working mom and usually am away 9-10 hours a day. So I treasure my days off and the time I get to spend with them. Also, my dear hubby gets a much needed and deserved break.... he's an amazing stay at home Dad. I'm thankful for the job he does every day.

Today I hit the gym early. 46 minutes of cardio. I'm almost to my step goal (10,000) for the day! I had a healthy breakfast. I've done great with drinking my water.

We went to Sweet Tomatoes for lunch as a family. I started off great with a lovely salad, fat free dressing... then I went for the Indian Bread, thinking if I was going to eat bread it was the wisest choice... Learned my lesson... check out the calories BEFORE you eat it... 200 calories a slice, then add the butter on top... phew.... So I'm slightly over my calories for the day. But, I HAD A GREAT DAY!!!

I'm thankful that the sun was shining, that the sky was blue, that I got to spend time with my family, that I got my workout in. Today was a great day!

Did you focus on the positives of your day today? If not, really try. It makes all the difference in the world!
