I was just feeling better...Never again

Tuesday, June 14, 2011

So today has been very hectic. My hubby has a ruptured disc so now he is not allowed t go back to work for at least 2 weeks. This means no income coming in for at least two weeks. We have all been running around ragged so we went to Burger King. I didn't even eat the enitre sandwich, I am feeling so sick now. Never again will I do that! It was not worth it. No to mention tomorrow is weigh day and I didn't gt my exercise in. I will double up tomorrow. I should have a little more time since tomorrow is the shorter class.

I am tired of the stress and now I am getting depressed. I don't know what to do. At least his job is ok with it. He hasn't been there a full year so no pay. I just can't take all the BS anymore! When will it end!!!?????

    Yep, been where you are there with the hubby hurting his back and off work and no pay. My husband has 2 ruptured discs in his back too. He is in a lot of pain a lot of the time. He doesnt want to have surgery. not yet at least.
I know how you feel after eating the Burger King. every time i do it i say never again, too.
All I can say is it gets harder as you age to work out and make the right decisions about eating. So do what you can while you are still young. I am certainly not preaching but if I woulda known when i was young how hard it would be at 48 i woulda probably done something about my weigh then.
Exercise tends to ease depression. I know its a bugger finding the time then using that time to work even more. But if you do you will feel better both physically and emotionally.
PS i hope your husband's back feels better. emoticon emoticon

I have no energy, no appetite

Monday, June 13, 2011

Why as soon as it starts getting nice I get sick? It went from having a horrible stomach ache for a few days to having a sore throat, barely having a voice, after putting the clothes in the dryer I am so tired and broke out in sweats. I didn't get any cleaning done. My husband fianlly went out and mowed the front grass. Which only took about 5 minutes but was in pain. I tried to get him to let me but "no I am almost done". So I mowed the back. It took me a little longer and It was just like last year when I was reallyout of shape. But I got it done. That was all. I went and laid in bed for like 4 hours then finally got up and did some homework. I wish I didn't have class today.
I don't feel like eating either. All I want is some orange juice. We are all out. emoticon

    I hope you feel better soon. You should probably not push to do so much. Your body needs to focus its resources on helping your get well.

Saturday was lovely

Sunday, June 12, 2011

My daughter had her fist dance recital yesterday. IT WAS AWESOME! She (and her class) did an awesome job. I was so proud. We were done all day so when we got home we sat around and watch movies and relaxed. I needed to do homework but I said forget it. I didn't log back in here yesterday or do any homework. It was relaxing, I needed it! emoticon

Now today not so lovely, need to do housework, yardwork and homework. WORK WORK WORK WORK. I thought Sunday's were supposed to be a day of rest????!!!!!!

I DID IT! I completed my first month! Now I haven't lost any weight yet but I do have to say that overall I am feeling better, I can tell (especially in my calfs) that I am starting to tone up, and I CAN WALK UP THE STAIRS AT SCHOOL WITHOUT BEING WINDED!

To think at the beginning I could only stand doing the 10 min a day exercise and now I can do 30 min cardio(even though I haven't had a chance to do it yet today, will though shortly), 2 toning videos per day, I am tracking my food and making better food choices (and I measure everything!!!). In the last month I probably have had 5 coke zeros at the most. Which I was drinking 1-2 cans per day. I drink A LOT of water. I have always ate veggies/fruits but now I am making sure I get at least 5 serving per day. Before it was only like 1 or 2 a day.

I have came along way since I started. Despite getting upset on Wednesdays, I am very proud of myself for coming this far.

Neverending day

Thursday, June 09, 2011

So I have been running ALL DAY, NON STOP! And I am still not done. Got a homework assignment due by 11:59 tonight, haven't even looked at it yet. Wasn't home this morning to do my exercises so I was just going to put it off. I felt guilty plus when I looked it was just upper body toning so I just did easy quick stuff. We had to kill some time before my daughter was out of school and we didn't want to go home so we walked arund the stores so I used that as my cardio for today. I hope that is not cheating ;).

Homework time!

Have a great night!
