I'm writing before I'm biting

Thursday, July 30, 2009

Its 6:52pm and I'm hungry for dinner. I'm waiting for bf to get home so we can go to Chipotle. Now knowing this I looked up the calories counts before I went, knowing htat the tortillas alone can be 300+ calories. I'm proud of myself :)

I've realized when it comes to things in my life, that I'm like a 4 year old throwing a temper tantrum. I WANT IT NOW!!!, this applies to many different things in my life not just food., sex, naps. I'm horrible at saying no to myself. I have to learn that if I wait just a little bit I can have it, patience has never been one of my strong points.

I am doing a saving experiment between now and the end of August. I get to spend money on gas and groceries but that's it, no little book here, no lunch out there. Just to see what it looks like if I really bare bones my budget. This should also help me learn some control.

I did a 30mile bike ride yesterday which felt good. I'm tracking today... i'm on the right path. Now jsut to learn some patience.

    Congrats on your 30 miles, that's EXCELLENT!

As for patience, I have none, either so I cannot help ya there, other than maybe we can learn them together. I think your savings experiement sounds great, I probably need to do that myself, especially since DH is almost out of work. May have no other choice in a couple of weeks.

You CAN do it!

Who Jumps out of bed in the morning?

Thursday, July 23, 2009

If you do, can you tell me your secret. I remember when I was little and it took nothing for me to wake up, I was up and ready to start my day. Now, its all I can do to get out of bed. I didn't have to be at work early this morning, my alarm went off at 8am. I didn't get out of bed til almost 10am!!! and I was still tired.

I have been eating well, lots of fruits and veg, taking supplements and its still not enough. I don't know if my depression is still not quite there yet or if its stress or I don't know. I want boundless energy and I don't know how to get it.

    Boy, I've been suffering the same thing! My alarm went off at 5:30 this morning. I remember hitting the snooze button, but the next thing I know, I woke up at 6:30! I was so out of it, I didn't hear the alarm go off again!

    Try going to bed and waking up at the same time every day - even weekends. Eventually you body just gets used to the routine and you will wake naturally. Oversleeping can make me more tired and slugish all day.

Good luck!

    When you figure it out, please let me know.

Just 3 months ago, I could pop out of bed at 3:45 am, feed 3 to 4 horses, make it to the gym by 5 am, and then to work no later than about 6:20, now I can't seem to get out of bed before 5 am, and it's rush to get ready just for work at 6am.

Keep us posted and I sure hope you get it figured out soon.

Change is the only constant

Wednesday, July 22, 2009

Well my boss got promoted which I'm happy for her, but I'm really sad about it. I really liked her and although I'm sure my new boss is great too, its hard.

The good news is I'm down 3lbs this week and 7lbs from goal! I put on an old pair of pants that I couldn't get on a couple of weeks ago, they are still tight but I can get them on and done up, so I"m close.

I haven't worked out at all this week, I have to get more consistent with that, its just hard with the two jobs and lack of energy. I have a dr's apt tomorrow to see if I can sleep better than I have been, so hopefully something will change there.

So, that's where I'm at!

Compliments galore!!

Saturday, July 18, 2009

Not sure what I'm doing differently but I have been raking in compliments lately! I have been told twice in the last two days that I am "skinny" then a client told me I was really pretty. hey, I'll take it!! its so funny, because when I think of myself, skinny is not a word I would think of, but hey I'll take it!

After a little misstep midweek I am firmly back on track. Hoping to get some exercise in over the next couple of days. If the weather and my work schedule cooperates!
