Vday, park, Naturally Thin

Wednesday, February 16, 2011

Ok so on Monday I didn't workout because it was Valentine's Day:-). Got beautiful flowers, balloons, chocolate covered strawberries, mimosas, and dinner. I love my boyfriend, he always makes it the best day of the year! Then on Tuesday I had conferences after school and my son had religious education class from 5:30-6:30. We got home, ate, and I started typing up some documents for Thursday. After a few hours of work I couldn't open them because they were "corrupt"!!! So upset about that. Today I had tutoring after school, took my son to the library, took him to the park, picked up Pei Wei, and now I'm entering grades online before getting a workout in.

My son totally mortified me at the park. He is 4, and a little girl was giving him a lot of attention. He does not attend school or daycare but is taken care of at home. So I get nervous about his social skills because I'm not sure if he knows how to interact with other kids. He goes to drop in daycare and religious education to work on these skills. Anyway, he and the little girl are playing inside the slide and I just hear him ask her, "Am I your boyfriend? Are you my girlfriend?" So, so very embarrassed. We left shortly after this.

I read Bethany Frankel's Naturally Thin book and I loved it!!! Her suggestions are practical and I find myself repeating her tips over and over. Especially "you can have it all, just not at one time". I highly suggest people read it. I only read the chapters with the 10 rules and not the end of the book with a suggested eating plan. No thank you. I know my schedule and know what I'm capable of so I'll just keep doing my thing;-).

I went for a 60 minute walk and I feel great! This is my first real workout since getting sick last Sunday. Making lunch and plan to save some of it for lunch tomorrow. It's gonna be whole wheat spaghetti, grilled shrimp, and veggies. Gonna throw in some peach habanero sauce for flavor. Yum!

Haven't been my usual self for the past week. Haven't been consistent with workouts, food, tracking, or reading and commenting on others blogs and status'. Sorry...I plan to get back on track this week! I noticed that I had much more readers and comments when I was consistent. My blogs have been shorter as well. Guess I haven't had much to say.

  Peach habanero sauce sounds delish! Sorry to hear you haven't been feeling like your usual self, but I'm confident you'll get back on track quickly. Even if it's just a walk to keep yourself active, eventually you'll bounce right back into the heftier workouts and the rest will just come naturally.

my day, water, and currently reading...

Saturday, February 12, 2011

Today was a good day. Woke up and had pancakes and a cup of coffee for breakfast. Then went to the park with my bf and son. We went for a hike and sat by the creek for awhile watching bike riders and people with dogs pass. It was quite peaceful and beautiful. Came home, had a snack, pb and apple slices, and then we all took a nap. Had 2 hot dogs with chili for dinner and now just watching tv. I decided not to work out today as planned because I fear I'm not fully recovered and might cause this to prolong my illness. Oh well, what's 1 week of not working out? I did go for a walks so it wasn't a totally blown week.

On another note...I'm so tired of water! I need another drink or I'm going to lose my mind!!! Guess I need to go get lemons, crystal light, and ice tea packets to change up my drinks.

I've been reading "Naturally Thin" by Bethany Frankel and I really like it so far. Very practical suggestions.

    Glad you're feeling better.

Re: water. Have you tried cucumber water? Just add a couple of slices of cucumber to the water and let it sit for a few minutes. Refreshing!

workout attempt

Friday, February 11, 2011

So I thought today would be the day that I fully recovered. But shortly after arriving to work I started with the cough again. Dug through my purse hoping that I still had some dayquil or even benadryl from the previous days. Sure enough, I found the dayquil! Got through the day.

I packed a gymbag before work and gave it a try on my way home. Started walking on the treadmill and felt good after 10 minutes so I got into a slow jog. After about 6 or 7 minutes I felt weird so I started to walk again. Then the coughing started, deep, painful, coughing. So I stopped and attempted to keep walking but it was too painful and came home.

Had a not so good dinner of nachos with rotel, velveeta, and black beans. Now I feel sick:-(.

This weekends' supposed to be beautiful so I'm going to attempt total body from Jackie Warner's video and then try a brisk walk(no running this time). I'm a little worried about this cough though. If it persists into Monday I'm definitely going to see a doctor.

    I hope that throwing all that stuff up made you feel better. I am so sorry! Throwing up is the worst feeling. Yuck! Don't push yourself too much today....just take it easy and maybe have a walk.....I would hate for that cough to turn into something more! Sending you healing vibes!

day 3 of this training and day 5 of being sick!

Thursday, February 10, 2011

I didn't log on and write a blog yesterday...boo.

I'm here at the third day of this training. I'm still coughing and have an itchy throat. I feel lethargic. Wish I didn't feel this way. Wish I could just go knock out a run and a weight routine. But I know that I might slow my recovery if I workout so I won't. So I normally don't drink juice because I see it as empty calories. But I've been drinking OJ everyday since Sunday. It's delicious! Hope I don't get hooked!

Should I at the least walk today?? I feel so guilty for not working out. It's too cold outside but I could go and get on the treadmill downstairs...

I spoke to the religious education director at my church regarding the incident with my son. We discussed what I knew about the situation as well as what she knew. She apologized in various ways, and promised that she would take steps to ensure that it never happens again. It was a good conversation. I think I'm going to give it another chance and take him next week.
