A Slow Day 85

Sunday, July 11, 2010

Today my mental state is a little better than yesterday. Fell short on working out (15 mins only) and my emoticon drinking did not meet any goal. It is still early so there might be a chance of me reaching the 8 glass min. Not sure what is going on with my appetite. Have not felt much like eating. I have not met my minimum calorie range. Maybe that is a good thing since I have not been active today.

Tomorrow I will see if I met the goal of losing 2 pounds emoticon. If I have that is emoticon. If not, I know I did not work hard enough to met the goal and will need to work harder for future goals.

Good evening to all.

  


Day 84 (July 10 of 2008)

Saturday, July 10, 2010

Today I kept myself active by doing the following: I walked a mile this morning, lifted weights, and rode the stationary bike for 5 mins emoticon emoticon emoticon. After my "Y" work out, I did laundry (wash, dry, fold and put away), cleaned the bird cage, cleaned two bathrooms and the kitchen emoticon. Drank 9 glasses of emoticonand a glass of emoticon.

I tried keeping myself busy so I would not get overwhelmed by what was and is really on my mind. Two years ago today, my father passed. Although it has been two years, it weighs heavy on my heart. I was working the day he passed. Knowing my father could not be with us at any moment, I was being a dedicated employee this day 2 years ago (I put work first). I told myself I was going to work for half a day and than go to Hospice to be with him, my mom, sister and brother. While I was working, I received a telephone call from my son (whom was home from college and he does not call me during work hours) I know at that moment I was not going to see daddy alive emoticon. Boy, I remembered that like it was yesterday.

To keep to the subject, I must keep my mind and body busy. I am working on losing those pounds for my 25th class reunion. Like I have said before, even if I have not lost all the weight I want, I will still be fabulous. emoticon.

Without SparkPeople, today would have been much worse. I would have been depressed, obese and not giving a flying flip about the situation. Thanks my Spark family and emoticons for getting and keeping me on track to become a healthy person mind, body and soul. emoticon

    I'm sorry for your loss-even though it happened 2 years ago-I know how it feels as my father passed away 2 days before Christmas 2006, and I still actively miss him.

It seems like you're doing well with making a new improved you. Keep up the good work and show off at your reunion! emoticon emoticon

Not a Good Day

I am dealing with some work related and personal issues. Have not worked out yet maybe I will get to it later. This blog is going no where so I am going to end it.

Hopefully, my tomorrow will be better emoticon

Day 82

Thursday, July 08, 2010

I was so busy at work today I almost forgot what day of the week it was. There are so many deadlines to meet and meeting to attend. Everyone wants something and they wanted it yesterday emoticon.

My stomach has not been happy today emoticon( started last night but that is another story) so I have been eating small amounts of this and that so I don't upset it again.

My husband likes to tell me what he does and does not like to eat (he is one of those who can eat anything and does not gain an ounce) I purchase different foods for the two of us. When his food is gone, he starts to help himself to what I bought for me. Guess what! the cupboard is almost bare. I am waiting to see how long it will be before he breaks down and go buy some emoticon (this is also another story or more like a vent session).

I am going to call it a night. It has been a long hot day and tomorrow does not look any better emoticon

  


Wonderful Wednesday

Wednesday, July 07, 2010

It is day 81 and it is still sooo hot. I think it reached 98 degrees here today emoticon. I stopped counting emoticon @ 8 glasses. I know I drunk more. Went to the Y and managed 5 mins on the stair master, 20 mins on the gazelle and I lifted weights emoticon. Tomorrow is cardio day and I will need to work harder at it if I want to look fabulous for my class reunion on July 24th emoticon

All and all, a productive and hot day emoticon emoticon. Hot or not I will need to pick up the pace tomorrow!
