Veggies: Carrots, beets, peas.
Fruits: pineapple, oranges, bananas.
Dairy: organic mozz. string cheese, eggs, skim milk, white american, plain Chobani. (all protein)
Protein: Kashi Go Lean, sliced turkey, rotisserie chicken, boneless/skinless chicken breast.
Carbs: pumpernickel bread, English muffins.
Sweets: local honey.
That's what you can find me eating this week if I stick to what I have in the fridge and do some cooking in the evening. I think it's actually a pretty good list for my narrow tastes. I've switched into my turkey mode lately. I go through phases of eating something for a while and then my tastes switch. I am aiming for a very light, clean, healthy, nutrient dense week.
I need to get into the gym this week for my own sanity. I am wiping my schedule clean once and for all for my Monday, Wednesday Yoga. Everything else can work itself around that for starters. My theme this year is peace and I need my Yoga practice to stay focused and balanced. Practicing with a teacher is very important to me and I need get a streak going of making it to class. My gym bag and Yoga mat are ready to go for tomorrow already.
They added a few classes to the YMCA schedule in White Plains. whiteplains.ymca-cnw.org/sites/defau
I think when I am a little more comfortable, I am going to add swimming back into my workouts again. There is a lot of open time in the large pool every day of the week for laps. Right now, I need to just get out of the 70's again and back into the 60's. I would like to not see the 70's ever again please. That's something I'll need to work on in the future.
Working out this week want to stay on track for the good weather that has to be coming soon, don't want to get caught overweight when Spring surprises us!

If you were curious how far your washing machine goes when it spins. Well I was right, I did leave it on my bra and it did go through the washer and it lit up when I took it out and tapped it and registered over 3000 steps for the day. That's a lot of spinning in the washer. Thank you Spark People for making a tough little tracker. I'm glad it survived.

I think it's going through the wash as we speak so I've ruined it. I thought I remember taking it off my bra when I put my bra in the laundry basket, but the tracker isn't where I put it when I take it off so if it's in the laundry I'll be ordering a new one tonight. That's okay, I'll order the one without the Spark logo colors so it blends into my dark shoe better at work. I wonder if the o-ring can survive the wash. It's supposed to survive swimming so I might get lucky tonight. I do hope it's in the washing machine. I'm off to find out, wish me luck.

So I was looking through a few photos and it sunk in really deep that I won't be going to Mexico this year and it broke my heart. I'm still out of balance with my finances since I have to start saving for a car now and I just can't swing both. I'm so happy when I'm there and it's where I've been able to come home and unwind every year before getting thrown back into work. I'll miss my friends, the food, the everything about it. I'm sure I'll get used the idea and be okay with it eventually but right now with all this snow at the tail end of a harsh Winter I'm a bit heart broken. Cabin Fever and SAD all thrown into one tough season. I hate January and February in New York, truly. Once the decorations come down, it's just awful every second until the Spring and it takes it toll. The second I retire I'm getting out of here for the Winters and getting a place in Sedona I hope. I hate living in New York, I have forever. Once you leave and see other places you never want to come back here, it's that awful in the greater NYC area. I'm a little stuck so I'll make the best of it, every place I can.
Remember my idea for not having just specific New Years Resolutions but to have a theme for the year to try and live by and through that theme achieve my other goals? Well that theme was Peace and I am certainly off my center in that respect right now. The Winter throws everything off balance but that balance will not magically reappear you must work to restore it as the Season has worked to undo the peace. If I do not capture and focus positive energy it will just bleed out and I'll be empty. Peace will not come on its own, I will strive to restore it from the inside. I have to let go of the idea of trying to change what I cannot and reshift that energy into what is positive here. I can't move, I can't leave, I won't be in Mexico so stop whining, suck it up and focus on what is going to be positive instead for goodness sakes. Wasting so much time pining away for the what can't be and losing the what can be good. If I know I am positively unhappy in my current life, isn't it my responsibility to change that and put a new spin on being here? Life wouldn't magically change if I moved anyway, at least I can't assume it would. What if it were worse? Tend the grass here.
I'll start with the fact that it's almost 40 degrees out and it's only 9:20am. I'll also mention that I have successfully talked myself positive by writing this blog and have found a little more peace for today than I started with.
Thanks for listening.

I went to the gym. Dan was the floor trainer. He's been there forever, I love my gym and I'm glad I didn't drop my membership. Again, what was I thinking? Well I did something, I did a 5K workout on the treadmill. Good start. Day 1, just get there, show up and do something fun and work out.
You can see the winter pudge that has crept on and the work that I have ahead of me again. I don't want to yo-yo anymore and get into this gain 20 pounds every Winter routine again next November. I have just a week and a half to get down to 170 for my February goal. If I get to the gym between now and next week I just might make it, or very close to it. February is a short month. I'll get to the gym again tomorrow and do something else.
#WinterWellness 30 days until Spring and Day 1 was a success.
