Sweat Suit to Swimsuit Day #3

Tuesday, May 05, 2009

Not too bad of a day. Even with Cinco De Mayo. I stuck to my calories- which wasn't very fun, but I feel better for it.

I did my first day of Slim in 6, and I feel pretty good about having completed it. I then did my boot camp dvd, and walked my dog. So, worked out, and stuck within my calories. I am feeling quite proud of myself. Now, I suppose, the catch is to plan on keeping it up.

So, I am sore, slightly hungry, but feeling hopeful. Onto Day #4.

    When you get hungry at night, a half cup of fat free cottage cheese can be your best friend. It will keep you from snacking, and it will also help keep your calorie burn elevated a bit while you sleep from the slow release of protein.

Sweat Suit to Swim Suit- Boot camp Day #2

Tuesday, May 05, 2009

Well, today was almost a pretty good day. It was our sport's day- so golf for 2 hours. When I watch golf, it doesn't seem like a lot of exercise. But, when you aren't sure what you are doing, and hitting the ball for only 10 ft give or take..its a lot of walking. I also loved driving the cart from hole to hole, but the walking was rough.

I also got my fruits in- which is always pretty easy for me. I love fruit. I also liked the lower body workout today. I almost repeated it, but lack of time after my long morning.

No Slim in 6 today, but I will do it tomorrow- either before or after work- depending on when I wake up. I figure the 2 hours of hiking/walking around a course counts for today ;)

So, overall, good day. I am just hoping I can keep it up.

Ahh...Vacation :)

Thursday, April 30, 2009

Well, despite having a rough start to my vacation, it has been wonderful. I have spent the time with my family, and hubby is doing well.

I have even found time to exercise- I started slim in 6- I am in the first week, but have worked out every day, and taken my pup on long walks.... Food has not been great. I will weigh in next week, but with brownies, cake, and beer, it can't be good :( But, it has been a great relaxing time, and that is really what I needed. It will all balance out, and I will get myself back on the wagon starting...Friday..or maybe Monday...


But, all is well, and I am feeling much better about life currently. Hopefully, I haven't done too much damage on the scale.

Worst start of a vacation :(

Sunday, April 26, 2009

Well, I am trying to be positive, but its just not easy.

Poor hubby has continued to try to get a job, and it just isn't working out. We are being as conservative as possible, not buying any luxuries, ect... and I had a resting baseline anxiousness.... and then Friday happened. My poor hubby was in an accident. I am overwhelmingly thankful that both he and the other driver are both ok and walked away. but the rental car, hospital trip, and the possible deductible were obviously not planned....which makes me all the more worried. I also feel responsible sort of. If I hadn't sent him out for gas for the car, he would never have been in the accident. I know its a moot point, but it just makes me feel so guilty. I just think our economic misfortune, now with our actual misfortune is turning me into a nervous mopey person.

I am trying to calm down though. I just need to keep reminding myself that things aren't as bad as I sometimes feel they are. I mean, this is the whole reason insurance exists- to help take care of the whole accident. Hubby keeps trying to get a job, and the economy has to turn around at some point (right?). My parents and his parents are helping us out with groceries- and i couldn't be more grateful to them. So...I suppose things aren't quite as bad as I worry. And I suppose it all will get better in a year, give or take.

So, I am going to try to get in some sort of happy place for this vacation. Just to relax, get back into some sort of exercise habit, and let my worries fade- if even for a bit. It has to get better.

    Hi, a vacation is supposed to take you away from the everyday business of life, so that you and your husband can just relax together and have some fun. You will come back rejuvenated and happy that you took this time alone together. You guys deserve it... things WILL get better emoticon
