Cleaning day

Thursday, October 06, 2011

I have neglected a lot this week so its time to get on track. When I get home from taking my daughter to school I have to clean this house!!!! That will be my cardio today! I gotta weeks worth of scrubbing floors, bathroom, counters...to catch up on. Then maybe I can get some homework done!
Have a good day!

Can't stand it anymore

Wednesday, October 05, 2011

I have never been the one to really care about what I look like. I know I am overweight but I knew one day I would lose it and get back down the way I was before. DH doesn't mind the way I look. I really never cared about what anyone else thought. But lately, as I am getting dressed I would look at myself in the mirror and I am just plain disgusted. I cannot stand my "muffin top" any more. I am sick of finding a shirt that I like in my size but fits me weird because I am shaped like a pear. (We did some shopping this weekend). I just can't take it anymore. I should use this to motivate me but I just feel so tired this week (from that evil visitor). I have no energy. I hope I will have more energy next week. I will have to double up on my workout to get that 1000 monthly fitness minutes that I want to badly.

I know next week will be easier since DH will b back to work. I always get so much more done when he is not around. Plus my little visitor will be gone so I won't feel so drained.

I am ready to be a size 5 again. Even a 6, 7, 8, 9...a single digit!!!!! I wish I wasn't so short. That just makes it look even more worse.

So many things going on in my head! School, house stuff, weight, looks, even my face is breaking out again. I am really sick of that. I thought after a certain age your face starts clearing up??!! The dark circles around my eyes! I did a thing on Olay.com and it gave me recommendations based on my answers. I am going to get what they said.

I don't know why I am caring so much about my looks lately. I never cared before. I think it is starting to affect me that I feel older than I really am. Maybe my emotions are just getting the best of me this week. Oh well I guess I look on the brightside, at least it is going to be a beautiful week (getting up to 80), hope I can enjoy it!

meanwhile, have last exam today. I should know how I did on mondays exam today too. As long as he got them graded.

have a great day!

    I KNOW HOW YOU FEEL. I AM NOT SHORT BUT AT 37 STILL BREAK OUT. WHENEVER I'M TIRED I GET BIG DARK BAGS UNDER MY EYES. I HAVE MADE IT BACK TO SINGLE DIGIT PANT SIZES THOUGH I HAVE NO IDEA WHAT SIZE BECAUSE I'M STILL WEARING MY 10'S AND 12"S WITH A BELT. I TOOK VACATION THIS WEEK AND HAVE DONE NOTHING FOR MYSELF SO FAR. I STILL HAVE 2 MORE PAGES TO GO ON MY RESEARCH PAPER AND HAVEN'T STARTED STUDYING FOR MY MID-TERM NEXT WEEK. AT LEAST MY HOUSE IS CLEAN. WE PUT TOO MUCH PRESSURE ON OURSELVES. NO ONE IS PERFECT AND WE HAVE TO MAKE THE BEST OF WHAT WE HAVE. THERE WILL NEVER BE ENOUGH HOURS IN THE DAY OR DAYS IN THE WEEK WE HAVE TO MAKE THE MOST OF THE TIME WE HAVE. WORK ON YOUR EXERCISE AND EATING BUT REMEMBER YOU ARE DOING IT FOR YOURSELF, YOUR HUSBAND , AND YOUR CHILDREN BECAUSE THEY NEED A WIFE AND MOTHER WHO CAN LIVE LIFE WITH THEM.

ITS FINAAALLLY TIME!!!!

Tuesday, October 04, 2011

We got the wonderful news that DH can return to work without restrictions on Tues Oct 11. His job agreed and gave him the ok too! Oh yeah one week from today (just imagine me doing a happy, excited dance!!) This has been the happiest we have all been in months.
It is such a relief. I feel the weight lifting off me!

Now I just got to get my butt kicked into gear. I go through spurts of motivation and energy. I need it to be everyday. I did get a lot of cardio in over the weekend walking the dog, gardening...I just haven't been tracking anything. Well at least on Saturday. Sunday the little "monthly" visitor came in and I haven't wanted to do much. Plus I have 3 tests this week so I have been trying to study. I have noticed I haven't craved chocolate yet though. I guess that is a good thing. I have been walking right past the cookies too when we go to the grocery store. I looked but kept on walking.

I am going to try and motivate myself this afternoon to walk the dog. (Doc said she was getting a little big, even though she is nothing but muscle.)

Have a good day!

    AFTER NEXT WEEK OF COURSE I WON'T BE ON AS MUCH BECAUSE I'LL BE ROLLING INTO THE HOLIDAY SEASON BUT WHEN I'M ON A LOT IN JANUARY BECAUSE OF THE BREAK FROM SCHOOL AND I'LL BE BACK TO NORMAL HOURS AT WORK I'LL EXPECT TO SEE YOU ON AND ACTIVE A LOT MORE.

Got up early this morning

Friday, September 30, 2011

I set my alarm earlier so I got up and did my cardio for the day. 15 min walk/jog and 10 min cardio kickboxing. I want to try and get 2 toning videos in later. Today is core day.

Didn't eat well at all yesterday. We went to Wendys. It wasn't that good!!!

I volunteered yesterday at my daughters school for lunchroom help. It was fun! I signed myself up 1 day month. Maybe more. I love volunteering at her events. They do so much cool stuff!!!

Have a great Friday!!!
