I didn't get nearly as much done as I would have liked to today, but I didn't go crazy and kept my meals balance better than I have probably ever....I also made sure I took the time to do my meditation and prayers and since I have to be up for work at 5Am, I am cutting this short to plan for 3 meals before I call it a night.
Unfortunatly, I will have to get all my fitness in when I get home, I really don't see myself getting up any earlier to do it before work.

I choose to make to day snd POSITIVE and PRODUCTIVE day. I've got a lot of stuff to do, chores etc., but I will take time for me. This week my goal has been to better manage my time, so I'm working on fittiling little things in here and there so that I can get more accomplished by the end of the day.
This is not my stong suit, because, although I can multi-task, I like to concentrate on one thing and get it done instead of flitting between a bunch of different tasks. Seems when I don't focus on the one thing, nothing ever truly gets DONE and I get discouraged. But, on the other hand, if I feel a task is too large to complete it all at once, sometimes I just procrastinate and never get it started at all.
I know there is a happy medium, and this week I am trying to find it. Wish me luck!

Okay, I'm praying that this is PMS without the comfort of copious amouts of food and chocolate. It's either that, or I've gone starck raving mad and am in grave danger of killing someone.
My previous coping skills, as stated above, are not an option, and I'm trying very hard to remain sane. Did some cooking, a veggie lasagna w/o noodles etc. Did some crunches, did some chores, anything to keep my mind of of it, but I am feeling a great deal more irritable and stressed. And I ache, especially my back which could be PMS or the number of crunches I've been doing.
At least tonight I have a Bible study get together with the girls...they can always make me laugh.
Now, I'm off to fold some more clothes, put a load in to wash, and then eat a small meal before I go so I won't lose control on the goodies tonight.

Today started out as such a great day. I felt full of energy and really looking forward to the day...and untill about 1pm, the day lived up to my every expectation for a wonderful day.
I'm not sure what happened after that. Moods, I guess, but those can be contagious and soon I found myself preferring to be alone than put up with them, but that was not an option.
The concensus was to go out for lunch (not mine), and the decision was made that the location was Portillo's...okay, nevermind that they refuse to divulge their nutritional information to anyone. The VP of the company has even gone so far as to say "they(the customer) knows that its fast food and not healthy. If they want healthy food they should eat at home." The beef sandwich alone is 57g of fat and small cheese fries are a cool 1000 cals...and the salads are no better. I found a website where an independant dietician had analized some of the more popular items and the safest (believe it or not) was the chicago style hot dog,
So, my dining decision made we headed out the door....1/2 way to the restaurant someone chimed in, "or we could go to Chili's"...aaaarrrgghh.
Last night I managed and manuvered around my sister's fried chicken breasts for dinner and today it was this...enough....does no one understand that I need to think about what I am putting in my mouth (hence on my hips)!
Okay, enough wining. Thanks for understanding and letting me vent.
I did manage to make a couple of simple recipes when I got home. Labeled and vaccuum sealed w/nutritional info on the bags, so I proud of getting that done. I also forced myself to get some fitness in tonight. In my not so pleasant mood that was the last thing I wanted to do, but I convinced myself not to break the momentum. Not much a half-dozen strength exercises...some crunches and twenty mins. of cardio.
I think I need to do just a little catching up on mail and get to bed early. They say that "tomorrow is another day, maybe if I go in without expectations, it won't disappoint."
