I joined the Spring into Shape Bootcamp Challenge this week. So far I've stuck to it -- done my 10-minute video every day, and managed to do cardio as well. (Except Wednesday, but I'm making it one of my 2 Off days.)
I've had a great week mentally. That sounds weird, doesn't it...? What I mean is, this week was quite stressful with things to get done and places to be (mostly for the kids' schools winding up for the last 2 weeks), and of course my job is *regularly* annoying. Despite all that, I managed to keep a healthy, positive outlook. This is not easy for me; I've really had to work at it. Being mindful that the moment I'm in right now is GOOD; that my job is for the GOOD of my family, and it isn't the most important thing in the grand scheme; that the people I come in contact with deserve my BEST kindness... it's hard to explain, but mindfulness has been a great friend to me this week.
Check out zenhabits.net, if you don't know about it. It's one of my favorites.
Anyway, that's where I am. Haven't been reading blogs here on SP to try and maximize my time. Miss you all! Here's to an awesome weekend (TWO WORKOUT DAYS - can I do it??) Wish me luck!

Just had a lovely 2-drink lunch on the company dime! We enjoyed "Skinny Citrus Coolers" and fish tacos al fresco. I only had one-point-five drinks, BTW. Not the most calorie-friendly lunch but it could have been worse, and there's definitely something to be said for a morale-booster with your team.
Now I'm unsure I'll get ANYTHING done this afternoon! LOL!
V8 and pickles for dinner tonight, that's for sure. (Kidding, kidding. A nice salad ought to do the trick. )
My week is going okay, calorie-wise, and I think I can even stay in-range today if I work at it. Slightly worried about getting in my workouts the rest of the week/wknd because my parents are coming to stay with us for the next 4-5 days. It's always crowded and busy with them here, not that I would trade it. I'm so glad they are able to visit frequently and I know the kids love it.
Ten Minutes, right? Just aim for ten minutes....

I couldn't resist the invitation and I do think it's important to spend time with friends/coworkers... But then I didn't stop myself from overeating. I was all prepared to just eat HALF of my spinach quesadilla. But one more bite turned into 4 or 5 more bites. #@*(!?!
I told myself I'd workout in the evening, but then that didn't happen either.
Trying not to beat myself up over it and just let today's GOOD DAY (I WILL HAVE A GOOD DAY TODAY) even up my weekly average.
frickin'frackin. THIS is why I don't lose the weight.
