Ok day today...
Ate oatmeal and fruit with a coffee and creamer for bfast.
For lunch I had 2 small slices of leftover Digiorno pizza(hey I still need to have some normalcy to this madness).
Drank unsweet tea and water..lots of water today.
Snacked on a hard boiled egg with a grapefruit sprinkled with sweet n low(turned down juice and an apple turnover snack which a co-worker was literally shoving into my hands).
Dinner was beef stir fry with fresh broccoli and mushrooms(saved some for lunch tomorrow).
My workout was Jackie Warner power circuit lower body and abs.

So I got home and immediately got into my gym clothes. Took my son to Tropical Smoothie to get a smoothie because we were both hungry and it was too early for dinner. We then went to HEB to get fruits, veggies, and meats for dinner and lunch/dinner tomorrow. I like my stuff fresh!! :-)
Anyway, as I was checking out my phone beeped...it was my calendar alert reminding me that he had religious education at 5:30. It was 5:00 on the dot! So we literally ran out of the store and rushed home to change his shirt and drop off the groceries. His shirt said "chillax" lol...no way he could wear that. I got him there at 5:30...just in time.
I decide to go for a run after that. Left my car in the lot and walked to a nearby park and trail as my warmup. Stretched and then ran:-). I ran around the park, up and down the street, around the neighborhood, and even came back to the lot twice to get water from my car. There was this killer hill, and after going up it the first time I was exhausted...but I kept going. Then as I neared the end of my run, that hill was between the church and I. So I just got to it...and I conquered it! Total run time was 31.41 and then I walked for til 43:24.
I feel amazing! Wished I had someone to run with me though. I tend to like working out alone but runs are hard for me right now and I really have to talk to myself, listen to good music, and just visualize the end to get through it.

I feel guilty for blogging every single day. But then I think, this is really like a diary for me. I get to talk about something that I tend not to bring up to others. It's almost like I'm ashamed to admit that I'm fat and need to lose weight. So I conceal it and act like I have it under control and am working out for the health benefits. But anyone else can clearly tell that I need to shed a few pounds! I am on Facebook but have contemplated whether or not I should merge the two.
Anyway, got that off of my chest. I don't feel like I did enough today even though it's what I have planned. Monday is upper body and abs day so I did Jackie Warner power circuit. Tomorrow is a running and deep stretch day as is every other day. Wednesday is lower body and abs. Friday is my rest day. Saturday is my total body and abs day. I'm on a roll right now as far as staying active. Starting to get it back!
I don't feel like I'm overdoing it at all given what I've scheduled everyday. I decided that Friday had to be a off day because it's the day when I just feel like coming home and kicking off my shoes. It's also a day when we go out of town. I have all day on Saturday and Sunday so those are the days that I cannot possibly rest.
Eating-wise I know that I have to get more serious. Although I don't believe in completely depriving myself and being hard core, I have been letting too many things slip. Like breads, sweets, candy, etc. I'm still eating frequently, eating in small portions, drinking water or unsweet tea(maybe a diet soda twice or 3x a week), including fruits and veggies in every meal, and grilling/baking/broiling/boiling my food. Basically I know what I should be doing and it's become second nature. But I have noticed that I've been sneaking in chips or chocolate lately. Oh, and also the creamer in the coffee. I had stayed away from it and switched to milk but have resorted back to it:-(....I'm like an addict.
Anyway, going to get into bed soon. Cya

So I tracked a 4lb gain...no biggie. The last time I tracked I was shocked to be at 155 because I hadn't put the effort into losing it. So this feels just about right.
Having a decent day...went to a friend's softball game at the park. It was a lot of fun because it's a gay league and they dress funny and act crazy during the game. After that I went for a run at a trail. Ran 30 minutes and then walked for 10. I played pandora on my phone and the songs really helped me get through the run(Black Eyed Peas, Rihanna, Nicki Minaj, Fergie, Justin Timberlake). I really need to stick to my routine of weights every other day and running every other day in order to increase my mileage and speed. It wasn't too long ago that I was running further and faster:-/. My legs felt heavy after only about 15 minutes today! But I pushed through:-).
Foodwise I've been pretty lenient. Had 2 small pancakes for breakfast with a cappuccino(thanks to my Tassimo). Snacked on a smoothie before and after my run. Ate 2 chicken breast tacos on corn with lettuce, tomato, avocado, and mozzarella. I'm about to have 1/2 of a hot pocket because it's been in my freezer for 2 weeks and I've really fought off temptation to have one. So before I go crazy and eat like 5 slices of pizza, I'm just gonna give in and have half of one and share the rest with my son. Will track of course! Brewing some tea to keep in a pitcher and about to read some more of my current book, "The life you want" by Bob Harper.
