Productive day

Monday, January 14, 2013

Well, I have been at work for 5.5 hours now, and I have been productive. Slowly, because I have a minor fever, but productive none the less.

My food is within all boundaries. My last seven days still looks good. The dailies are still problematic in carbs (low) and sodium (high), but the weekly average is within range. I find that eating meals made at home are far less likely to have high sodium counts. I have amped up the carbs through rice and beans. They work nicely to get the carbs number up.

I do not feel like going to the gym (fever), so I will, when I get home, do some lightweight dancing to slowish music, and try to get those 8000 steps in that way. No pushing. Just dancing a bit.

    I seem to have problems getting protein in. I was having sinus problems over the weekend so I know those kind of days can be challenging

Late Start

Sunday, January 13, 2013

Today I got up late and did not have time for breakfast. Grabbed an oatmeal bar and took off for church.

I H ATE getting up late. But does that change my habits? NO!!

However, I did eat the lunch I had planned.

So, some progress today. emoticon

    It's all about implementing small changes until they become normal routine. Congratulations on not skipping breakfast, attending church, and getting right back to your nutrition plan as soon as you could!

    Hard to be perfect all the time. At least when sitting in church, you are not sitting in front of TV snacking! It was doughnut Sunday at our church and so I took in bad calories even there!

Lovely Saturday

Saturday, January 12, 2013

yes, yes. I know. I am running late. But I had a HUGE project in mind when I decided to take the Christmas decorations down this weekend.

But, since my word for this year is: Stewardship, I decided that I had to take things well into hand, once again.

The last time that I did an inventory/sort of my Thanksgiving/Christmas decorations was well over 12 years ago - before we moved to this house.

Plus, I have become lazy about getting all the boxes up from the basement every year.

So, I asked my middle daughter to help me. She is bringing boxes up from the basement, and I have carved out some space in the family room to take all things apart, inventory, and repack them in smaller moving boxes. I expect to go from 6 large boxes to 12 medium boxes.

Meanwhile, I am getting some good walking in, going between boxes!

Nutrition Seven

Friday, January 11, 2013

OK. I am going to post my seven-day nutrition report (first time!) 11 January 2013

Calories: met range 4 times, under range 3 times
Fat: met range 5 times, under range 1 time, over range 1 time
Protein: met 3 times, under 4 times
Carbohydrates: met 4 times, under 3 times

However, I was within the range on EVERYTHING on a weekly basis. Ever so barely on protein. WHEW!

Friendly Friday

Friday, January 11, 2013

Today was a good day at work. Although I had only one court hearing, I was able to spend some quality time with my legal assistant. We worked through some procedural matters, discussed how to approach a routine problem, and celebrated a few successes.

That is, I think, a very good thing!

So far, I am doing well on exercise, food intake, and attitude today. I did, however, have one of those weird "heavy tired" events on the way home, and decided to take a nap when I arrived home. Thus: dinner is NOT simmering on the stove, yet.
