I am starting to get back into the swing of things and motivated. I went grocery shopping last night and bought mostly fresh fruit, vegetables, almond milk, eggs, etc. Healthy food that needs to be prepared and cooked or eaten raw. No more lazy for this girl!
**Nutrition: 1569 calories. Pretty good, and I did track everything except for maybe a tsp of nutella I licked off a spoon.
**Fitness: Week 3 started! 1 out of 3 runs complete. 1 out of 4 JM workouts done!
**Motivation: After grocery shopping I pushed myself to do a RiPPED workout. I am glad I did, it felt good and I knocked one out for the week!
On a POSITIVE note: One of my friends asked me to be on their Tough Mudder team in November. I'm not sure I am ready for an event this challenging, but it means alot (to my self esteem) that people think I could do it!
I am GRATEFUL for: Avocados being 2 for $2.

So I am a little behind, what else is new. I tried writing my Day 14 blog yesterday 3 times!! And for whatever reason Internet Explorer kept shutting down on me (I am on the boys’ computer). So I got so fed up I gave up! Lately (this past weekend) I had started to feel so lazy and unmotivated. I suppose everyone goes through those spurts once in a while…or maybe just me! HA. I didn’t meet my fitness goal and only got two runs in. I mean eating/tracking wise, I am still doing well. I hardly ever “cheat” and when I do I always include it the best I can. Any suggestions for me, Sparkies?
Day 14 – Monday
**Nutrition: 1614. Did well eating wise, it was my big cleaning day so I took meal breaks here and there.
**Fitness: Week 2 – 2 out of 3 runs complete. 0 out of 4 Jillian Michaels workouts complete. [NO BUENO! I could not motivate myself to exercise today..or lately for that matter, I need to get better at this, STAT!]
**Motivation: I did sooo well today. I have needed to clean my room now for months…and even used it as my motivation/organization goal for the first round of EPC. Ha! I finally got around to it….I cleaned off my dresser and organized my shoes. Now I just need to figure out which clothes to keep and what to give away.
On a POSITIVE note: I heard that Jillian Michaels is coming out with a new DVD on September 6th called “Killer Buns and Thighs”…I need to get that!
I am GRATEFUL for: a rainy day. Without which I most likely wouldn’t have cleaned!
Day 15 – Tuesday
**Nutrition: 1804 calories. Damn those Rice Crispy treats! I wasted most of my calories on them because they were homemade and at the kids that I watch’s house. They didn’t have much else to eat and I usually bring my lunch but I haven’t been to a grocery in a week. Therefore, I was hungry and they were present. I know, I should’ve had better will power. But it isn’t that bad!
**Fitness: Week 3 – Ran 4.4 miles today (at a decent pace of 5.6)..nice. So 1 out of 3 runs complete.
**Motivation: Nothing today. Maybe laundry tomorrow?
On a POSITIVE note: I exercised today, and really pushed myself. I didn’t “phone it in”.
I am GRATEFUL for: good friends. :)

Yikes! It was another unproductive day. I cant drink like I am in college anymore, because then it takes me a whole another day to nurse the hangover. BLAHH! So needless to say, eating helped me cope (or soothed the tummy ache I had alllll day) so breakfast and lunch were normal --but high in the calories range --but healthy anyway. Once dinner rolled around, my friend and her son were over and my mom was going to order pizza but my genius idea was go to the buffet. (I was craving it..bad, so bad) However, I didn't eat soo bad. (Sushi, crab rangoons, shrimp, clams, chicken, and 2 cookies) I wasnt stuffed, stuffed when I left. Then Mike called and we went running.
**Nutrition: This was the last day of my calorie spree -- IDK what I was thinking, I will blame the hangover! Prob not in my range and tracked everything but dinner.
**Fitness: week 2 = 2 out of 3 runs complete.....No Jillian workouts done.
**Motivation: Blahh. Failed again.
On a POSITIVE note: As much as my stomache hurt, I still ran 3.37 mi last night, it was nice and cool out.
I am GRATEFUL for: second tries. Being able to wake up and start a fresh, new day!

Well last night the concert/tailgating was awesome!!! but today I am totally out of commission....boooo! I drank wwwaaaaayyyy too much and then we went to the diner afterwards and I got a tuna melt....(I had to, it has been YEARS since I've had one and they make them the best there!) So I had plans to run/do Jillian early today but it doesnt look like that is happening....so here goes....
**Nutrition: Probably did not stay within my range...due to beer, pretzels, sun chips and my delicious tuna melt I devoured at 1 am. Therefore, I failed at tracking for the day. Booo!
**Fitness: week 2 = 1 out of 3 runs complete.....No Jillian workouts done. ---Will do tomorrow, no time today.
**Motivation: No time for cleaning today, need to get to this soon. I think I just dont even know where to start?!?
On a POSITIVE note: The kids behaved for me today, better than usual, so I treated them to ice cream ;)
I am GRATEFUL for: getting a call back from the Superintendent's office....things may just be looking up soooon =)
I included a picture from the concert...in my skinny jeans of course ;)
Me and my running partner/best friend Mike
