Missed Opportunities

Thursday, June 10, 2010

Yesterday went much better than Wednesday. I really miss my low stress life style. This pressure cooker stuff is driving me nuts. I need to find a way to get my day to be less of an impossibility and more positive. I am so thankful to be at home most of the time. I just wish I was there more. Now that my hubby is home I would like to be there more too. Not really realistic but a nice thought. Once he is back to work it will go back to normal which is fine. I just feel like I am missing out spending time with him while he has it to give. Wow...that sounds whiny. I went to Kohl's last night and got some work out clothes. I had to get a medium pant. I am still a large or X-large thanks to the boobs. They are smaller but still pretty noticeable. I am anticipating adding more activity to my day and figured it would be handy to have a few pieces of clothing that fit the bill for that sort of thing. I will build up a small collection slowly. That way I don't break the bank and I will have several pieces from different places and styles to choose from instead of a bunch of the same thing. I got two pair of Danskin pants. They are really cute. I also got a couple sports bras and a shirt that is cute enough to wear with jeans too if I decided to. I usually try to get things that can do double duty.

Ooops...Poptarts & Peanut Butter

Wednesday, June 09, 2010

Another Wednesday. I will be glad when I snap out of this one-day-rolls-into-the-next-regardless funk. I seem to be riding along but not really fully engaged. I had 2 poptarts and a peanut butter sandwich for dinner. I recorded it but I am not proud of it. I really upped the intensity of my workout this morning to try to atone to the exercise gods. I know that will happen occasionally even during the weight loss part of a healthy life style but I was still disappointed that I knew exactly what I was doing and couldn't seem to be bothered not to do it. I was so full and felt icky afterwards. Oh well it isn't the worse thing that will happen to me this week so I am moving onward and downward (so to speak). I probably won't lose any this weekend when I do my official weigh in but so be it. I am going to try to reign in the dietary challenges so the exercise can help me with the last 15 pounds. I know what I need to do. Now I just need to do it.

    You are so right!!!JUST DO IT. Be a Jillian Michaels kind of girl! Rid your home of all of that stuff that you don't need. It's not 'I think I can'.....'It's I know I can.'

Bad Start to What I Hope is a Good Day

Tuesday, June 08, 2010

Well one good thing about having a flat tire when you leave for work is that it will probably go up from there. I couldn't tell if it was a nail or what but it threw my otherwise normal morning into a tailspin. I did make it to work on time but I left the flat with my husband and took his car. Once I got to work I find that I feel like I am racing around a lot. I think it is just the left over feeling from the morning race to get to work on time. I did all my regular morning routine but it really changed how I was perceiving the day when my tire was flat. Oh well...so far so good at work today. I had 2 of the little Dove Bar Bites at 60 calories each last night in a weak moment. I really didn't feel well after I ate them though. They were really tasty if I am being honest but probably not worth it in the long run. Not enough up side while I am still trying to get to my goal weight. Live and learn I always say. When you stop learning you might as well be dead.

Monday...it keeps happening

Monday, June 07, 2010

It's Monday again. This issue (Monday) seems to happen all the time. I wish there was a way to skip it or sleep through it. The week always looks much more promising once Monday is over. I had a great weekend. I ate out and didn't blow it. I am gonna do this or else. Or else what I don't know. I just know I am going to do this. I did my bike and FF&FU this morning. I find I am paying more attention to the quality of the exercise in FF&FU. I really like the workout. They aren't too hard and seem to be doing something. I think I will add a few minutes on my Wii three days a week after work. I should be able to manage that. It is suppose to be 100 again today in ABQ. Too hot for me. I will stay inside unless I have to get out for something. I had better jump. Times a wasting as they say. Hopefully Monday will pass quickly!

    I hear ya Mondays can be kinda rough. I've also been doing the Fit Firm & Fired UP workouts since the beginning of May & I think they are definitely doing something. Although I still find day 7 challenging ( & the multi-directional lunges in day 1?) it is getting easier & (I think) my form is improving.

Congrats on your success so far & keep up the good work!

P.S.
A belated welcome to the Who Dey Bengals! spark team. I can't wait till its football season again (except for the winter thingy)

A Lazy Day Doesn't Always Mean Being Lazy!

Sunday, June 06, 2010

It is a lazy Sunday. New Mexico is experiencing record highs this weekend. Both days are 100+. As they say at least we don't have humidity. I am hanging out indoors though. I have learned that a lazy day doesn't mean lay around all day. I did an hour on my Lifecycle and my FF&FU for today. Now I can be lazy if I want to. I am watching the race at Pocono. I hope JG does well. I wish the weekends were longer but I suspect I'm not alone on that one. Oh well only one more full week until I am off to TN to see my parents for Father's Day. It will be good to see everyone. They will certainly notice my weight loss. They have seen me at about every weight I have ever been at over the years. It is nice to know you have support no matter what. I do with my husband, family and close friends. Of course the guys at Spark People too.
