Quick Update

Sunday, October 21, 2012

HOME SWEET HOME!!!! Going away this week has made me really appreciate coming back home. I was in Toledo OH for a majority of this week, came back friday night, worked, then drove to Oxford MI to hangout with family.

I had a nice time and got to spend time with my nephew, but I have definitely lost a lot of sleep this week. I'm feeling better, but still exhausted. I plan on catching up on some ZzzZZZZ's to ensure that I don't get run down.

Things I'm Proud of Today:
Making healthy eating choices when tons of bad choices have been available
Getting right back in my "routine" of eating well and exercising when I got home.

Things I'm thankful for:
Being home.
My cat who warmed my lap and kept me company while I "sparked" tonight.
Randy for going for a walk with me tonight despite him being exhausted.

Still fighting a bug...

Friday, October 19, 2012

My body feels very weak and exhausted. This has been a long week and I still have to work tomorrow, then drive to my aunt's for her party. *sigh* Sunday can't come soon enough.

Thing's I was proud of today:
Making it to work after puking and little rest last night.
Persevering despite little rest, away from home and illness.
Getting 10 minutes of fitness in despite all the craziness.

Things I'm thankful for today:
Being back home and getting to sleep in my bed soon.
Seeing my family.

I've been sick for the past few hours. I've thrown up three times. It came on kinda suddenly. I got to the hotel, ate, and worked out. An hour or two later I threw up. I'm ready to go home!

Things I'm proud of today:
Making healthy food choices
Persevering in tracking my nutrition despite the lack of information available

Things I'm thankful for:
Randy sending pictures of my family
Feeling a little better
Getting to go home tomorrow!!

    UGH!! We get a lot of stomach flu around my house due to my two little germy kids. Hope it passes quickly. Remember BRAT - bananas, rice, apples/applesauce, toast (or crackers).

    So sorry you are sick and hope you get well soon. Sickness stinks--and double stinks when you are away from home.

It's a lifestyle not a diet

Wednesday, October 17, 2012

...this is my mantra for this trip. I have had challenges, such as no fridge, irregular eating times, temptation that comes along with eating out...etc

I've been trying though by watching portions eating healthy lunches and breakfast and still attempting to work out. So I consider all these successes even though I may not be eating as healthy as I was last week.

Things I'm proud of:
I made it to the hotel gym and ran for over 20 minutes.
Not eating the Doritos that came with my dinner.
Keeping track of my calories/nutrition and being totally accountable.

Things I'm thankful for:
Subway making it so easy to track your nutrition
Getting to talk to randy today
The endorphins after my run
Good spark friends.

Business trip motivation

Tuesday, October 16, 2012

I arrived safely. Made good choices eating right up until dinner when my boss decided to go to Buffalo Wild Wings for food and beer. *sigh* of course there's no fridge in the room either. My plan for tomorrow is to add beer into my tracker preemptively and make better food choices. Perhaps even no beer depending on if I feel a migraine coming or not.

Here is my motivation for the week:

Today's positives:
Boss noticed my weight loss (first comment so far!)
Despite bad dinner I did use portion control and only ate half! (That's called progress)
I still managed 7 minutes of cardio (I didn't go long due to beer consumption)

Things im thankful for:
Good working relationship with my boss
My morals
Being good at my job and enjoying it
Meeting new people
