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?

Woke up feeling sick... and still kicked butt!!

Wednesday, February 05, 2014

So I woke up this morning without a voice. My throat hurts and my sinuses are stuffed. In my past, this would have been the perfect excuse to stay in bed and not do a darn thing all day long! NOT ANY MORE!!

I got up early, packed my lunch and gym clothes. Focused on extra fluids all day, adding hot tea to help with my throat. Then I hit the gym for a great workout! And now.... I'm actually starting to feel a little better! AMAZING!!

When I got home from the gym I noticed my steps were at 9,524.... so I walked one side of my apartment to the other, to get my extra 500 steps in!! 3rd day in a row over my 10,000 step goal!! I'm feeling FANTASTIC!!!!

Do you push yourself, even when you are tired or a little sick?

    Woot! Way to kick butt AND illness lol girl you are a MACHINE! I'm glad despite feeling not so great you still pushed yourself. If anything I would think exercise would be good for a cold (sweat out the bad stuff) a couple of weeks ago I was dealing with a nasty cold and I still went for walks and it cleared up in like 4 days...not too shabby lol.

Hope you feel better soon! Keep kicking butt! emoticon emoticon emoticon

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
