Sick and tired or being sick and tired!

Friday, March 14, 2014

And I was doing so well this school year!! Usually I get quite sick at least twice during the school year but I was doing so well and I remember thinking to myself that maybe I keeping myself healthy enough that I'll make it to spring without getting sick again. I thought too soon! A nasty cold hit me Wednesday evening. After I was finished with parent teacher interviews today I came home and slept most of the day. I'm starting to feel better, which got me thinking of what I've been doing this week that caused me to be so run down. Not only do I work full time and had the stress of parent teacher interviews this week, but I was traveling everyday after school taking the girls to their activities so my evenings didn't end until 9 pm. I also have not been sleeping well. So needless to say I put my health on the backburner.

So no longer!! My plan is to schedule in times to go to the gym, use Sunday to plan the week before and food prep time, and to lay off the coffee (biggest culprit to why I was not sleeping as well this week) and drink more water, and to record more on Sparkpeople.

Those are my goals and I'm sticking to them!!

Mud run here I come!!

Saturday, February 08, 2014

Well, I hope here I come! My lack of motivation has hit an all time low. I haven't even stepped on a scale because too scared what I'm going to see for numbers! I finally got out of the house and went snowshoeing yesterday and today. It felt great to be out, however the weather doesn't want to cooperate and we are expecting once again another cold spell. Ugh!! This winter has been too long!

So to help try to light a fire under my behind, I once again signed myself and my husband to a mud run. This will be second time but first for my hubby. I'm hoping I can convince him to join me at the gym once in awhile to train for it. Between him and my daughter I'm hoping they will be all the motivation I'll need. Cross your fingers and wish me luck!!

Morning workouts rule!!

Saturday, May 25, 2013

I have never never been a morning person. I'm the one who could sleep until 10 am on a Saturday. I have always wanted to quit this habit and start getting up earlier to workout before going to work. I tried a few days but I didn't make 2 days in a row. Now I have been up early 2 weeks in a row and the benefits are huge!! I have to say going with a buddy has helped my motivation to go. Either she is picking me up at 5:50 am or I'm picking her up. We are relying on each other to get there. I cannot believe how wonderful I feel, PMS symptoms have completely disappeared, how I feel more energized, sleep better at night, even my eating habits have improved!! The "need" to do this is greater than the "want". The benefits are just amazing. Our plan is to go early in the morning Monday to Friday. Weekends will include housecleaning, gardening, and probably taking my daughter to the gym. It's not sitting on the couch all day that's for sure!!

Motivation is the key!

Wednesday, February 13, 2013

Motivation is what keeps everyone going. But what do you do when you have lost it? I have tried all sorts of things to remotivate myself - reading daily motivational sayings, reading health related materials, pinned fitness and health articles and ideas, tried setting the alarm to get up early, take the time to create healthy meals, tried exercising with a buddy (unfortunately they have the same feelings as me so that's not too motivating). All I can do is keep at it! Keep trying! And push myself!! Here's to getting motivated!!

Sicker than sick!!

Friday, November 04, 2011

Well, I let my career overtake my health. I have aloud this to happen. I did not take care of myself - lack of sleep, not eating healthy and preparing proper meals ahead of time, drinking too much coffee and not enough water, not getting to the gym on a regular basis, lack of energy. Now because of this I have become run-down and sick with a cold. I thought for sure it was strep, but thank goodness it isn't. I tend to get strep at least twice during the school year. So it has not become that bad but it is bad enough. Ugh!!
I NEED, no, I WANT to get back on track!!
My biggest problem??? I'm a procrastinator! I put things off until they pile up so high that I don't know where to begin. For exercising I will say in my head 'I'll do it later' or ' I will get up at 6am tomorrow'. Well, enough is enough! Time to put the excuses to the back of my head and JUST DO IT!!!
