Manic Monday?

Monday, February 10, 2014

Today just didn't go as planned. I had a feeling that it wouldn't... Maybe that's what jinxed me. I left late for work, forgetting my gym clothes as I ran out of the door. I had an appointment with my esthetician right after work. She was running late, so my appointment ended a hour later than planned. On my way home, hubby text saying someone wanted to meet up to look at a car he's selling- and we really need the money- so had to come strait home. 3rd day in a row without the gym.... Feeling lost. All day at work I walk as much as possible, taking stairs and parking far for a walk- but it's not enough of a burn for me.

Enough of the negative.... On a positive note, I'm ending the day under calorie goal. Sure my dinner is almonds and popcorn- but hey- I'm still under. And.... Tomorrow is a new day!

    Way to stay in your calorie range! I feel lost if I don't workout too. I feel more accomplished all around when I do a workout. I hope you get to the gym today!

    It WILL get better! I have those days here too! That was me two weeks ago. Just keep journaling those foods and getting the extra walking in. You're making good choices. emoticon

Just Another Sunday

Sunday, February 09, 2014

Sundays are my favorite work day... Very few people in the office and it gives me the chance to catch up and set up/plan my work week. Outside of work, it's my least favorite day... My gym is only open from 1030-1730 on Sundays- right when I'm at work. It's because of this that I've designated Sundays as my one day off a week. But man.... Do I feel unproductive seeing only 4500 steps for the day.

Looking forward to tomorrow!!

    Can you use your break to take a walk all over your job or do some stairs at your job?

Much needed day off...

Sunday, February 09, 2014

I woke up exhausted. Think this cold finally is kicking me. Listened to my body, took it easy and drank lots of fluids. Hoping this will set me up for a great week!!

    Keep hydrating. I fought off two colds with Zycam. They went away before any real symptoms developed. I'm hoping it stays away. I hope your week goes well!

    Keep drinking those fluids and resting... getting back out there too soon will make the cold worse! (Ask me how I know. Cuz sometimes I don't think things through...)

Feel better soon!

Friday, work day... what?

Friday, February 07, 2014

I don't normally work on Fridays... the fact that I worked today was just too much for my brain to comprehend. All day felt off. It hasn't felt like Friday at all. I'm having to remind myself that tomorrow is Saturday and not Friday.... I'll get it eventually.

Calories and water intake look good for today. I still need to make dinner, but considering I still have 1233 calories left to intake, I'm not super concerned about going over them today. And YES, I did reach my step goal again today! That's 5 days in a row!! I'm feeling FANTASTIC!

Now if a magic money genie could just come in and pay my bills for me, everything would be PERFECT :) emoticon

Lazy day turned into Amazing day!!

Thursday, February 06, 2014

I had the day off work, which means I'm just lounging around and hanging out with the kids the majority of the day. I was still feeling a little sick from this cold... Then around 6pm- hubby got back from the library and I looked at my steps. Only 2,000 for the day? That is a lazy lazy day!! So.... I hit the gym for nearly 1.5 hrs. Being sick, I didn't push myself that hard. I spent the majority of it walking the indoor track. Now I'm ending my day at 11,522 steps!

What motivates you to get up and move?
