So I've been having trouble finding time to exercise. I asked myself today "How did I figure it out last time??"
Then I realized my schedule at work is completely different than it was when I was working out hardcore at the gym. I use to work 10-6 mostly, take the kids to the bus at 7, then go to the gym for 2 hours, then work. I felt awesome!
Now fast forward to the present.
I work 5am - 1 pm. I get up around 3:30am five days a week. I get home, I'm exhausted.
Today I thought, as soon as I get home I am getting on the treadmill. Not going to go in and sit down and get all cozy on the couch like I have been. I came home and did just that.
60 minutes on the treadmill, I burned a little over 500 calories.
I know that I am capable of doing this if I'm willing to dish out the work. I am tired, but feeling good!!

That is exactly how I feel today. It has not been a terrific. They can't all be rainbows and sunshine, I guess.
First... Our register at work wasn't working. Not that I didn't enjoy the little break of not waiting on people, but it made time creep. Second...we always get our delivery truck on Monday morning around 5 am. Today they called and said they were running 4 hours late. Really??
I'm finally home, and we have a leaking toilet. My parents are going to ride out in a little bit and my dad is going to see if he can fix it. Praying we dont need a new one.
Today food wise has been decent. I got a sub from subway.
6 inch flatbread
and light mayo.
I thought I did pretty good, but after you add all the little extras, it was just a little over 400 calories.
IF I don't have anything else this evening, I'll be ending it at 1185. I may have something small later.
5-HTP update. Ok today is the 4th day that I've taken it. It might just my mind telling me that it is helping, but I honestly think it is. Weird thing. It sort of makes my stomach upset. Just a pinch.
Have a great evening ya'll!

Ugh! I had this blog written once and accidently deleted it. Really???
Basically it was just me rambling about how I've made it SIX WHOLE DAYS without binge eating.
SIX WHOLE DAYS of staying in my calorie range.
Last night I was looking at my pics on here and instantly was depressed. Would you keep them or delete them? Honest answers PLEASE!!!
Todays calories ended at 1190. I've been having issues with my left knee for well over a month and I don't want to make it worse. My goal right now is exercise 3 times a week and I have done that. So today I'm taking it easy. Sometimes it's just as easy to eat less than to work out for me.
Here is a Sunday Funny for you. love, Love, LOVE cats. esp funny ones. lol

There it is. My first week, most of it anyway. No my food choices weren't always perfect. (Dang those McDonalds burritos), but I DID NOT binge this week, I exercised 4 out of 5 days, and I stayed within my calorie ranges. Feels awesome.
