My son broke his arm last week, so we've had some schedule rearranging and a bit of a hiccup in my focus. Lunch breaks have been spent taking him to doctor's appointments and other errands. I haven't worried too much about it, but am starting to feel like a slug.
In other news, however, TWO pairs of pants that have been too tight all summer, are now fitting! I can't believe this, because I have been SO inconsistent with daily exercise and calorie-watching. Still, I'LL TAKE IT!
Hope I can get back on track, workout-wise, on Thursday, Friday and the weekend.

I dislike having a job where I sit at a desk all day.
I try to get up a lot (have to, with all the water I'm drinking), and I make sure to stretch for about 10 minutes at least once a day, but ugh. There are many days I wish I had a job where I was on my feet. Grass is always greener, I'm sure.
(I also dislike having my computer screen visible to all who walk by!! Specifically, my manager, who can see when I'm goofing around on Sparkpeople! Luckily, she's on here, too, but... still.)
Today's going well for me and I've planned my dinner so I can eat THREE tacos. Taco night is my favorite! Only thing is I need to stay away from the CHIPS. :)

Yesterday I walked 1.6 miles (measured it this morning in the car) and then did my abs workout. It felt great, although it was humid! Ick!
This morning I can feel the good sore. Yay! I've missed you, good sore!
Last week, a friend I hadn't seen in a while said "you look great, what have you been doing?" Truth is, I haven't lost weight really, but I'm glad she said that. Even if it's only politeness talking, it's a good motivator. I would like more compliments like that.
Finally, I had an idea this morning. Maybe I should record "Biggest Loser" to my DVR (or watch it On Demand) on Saturday mornings, to keep me motivated on the weekends! I typically do watch it on Tuesday nights, but since weekends are so tough for me.... just a little strategy I might test out.

...My office, my kid's martial arts classes, den meetings, pack meetings, volunteering for his school, at Costco, helping with homework, singing at choir practice, and church, falling asleep on the couch every night, barely remembering to make the next day's lunches, NOT getting the haircut I need, NOT doing the clothes shopping I need to do, but somehow spending plenty of money anyway...
Stupid, crazy week since I last posted here.
Nutrition has gotten lazy again. (French fries anyone? I had them at lunch yesterday. It has been a while since I allowed myself fries at lunch.) Workouts have all but stopped. I need a swift kick in the pants. I need that ONE workout. WHEN? Tomorrow at noon is the first time I'll be able to.
I'm discouraged because I KNOW I have gained pounds again.
I think I need to find a "TEN POUNDS TO LOSE" team.
Anyway, I'm back. I'm still gonna try. Someone please give me a pep talk.

I realized the other day that my baby girl will be FOUR in just a few months. It blows my mind. Didn't we just bring her home from the hospital the other day? I mean, I know that's not true, but wow. FOUR is so grown-up! Crazy.
We're getting through our days, neither my husband nor I has gotten to workout in the past 5 days. We could have squeezed it in, but there has been a tiny bit of home maintenance stress (refrigerator died, then came back to life (after we'd spent a lot of $$ on a new one, but before it was delivered), then died again, and then we had a 3-day delivery snafu). Starting tonight, I hope to get back on track FOR REALS THIS TIME.
But we've also had the lovely relief of some rain in the area, which we have sorely needed. Yesterday I took a walk in the rain. It wasn't a very athletic walk, just a leisurely one with my umbrella, but what a nice thing to do!! And better than continuing to sit at my desk for 8 full hours. I hope to do that again today.
Life's just busy, but it's really, really good. I hope all of you are having a great week, too.
