I did make it to the gym last night. I didn't go overboard with it because I was very tired, but I knew I wouldn't have a chance today. I don't like to work out before I go in to work, but it will be especially hard for the next couple days. Tonight, I will be at work until at least 10, but I really don't think I'll get out before 11, maybe even 12. Tomorrow, I have to be at work at 7 in the morning. And through the whole week, I don't have two shifts back to back that are the same. Close, open, close, day off, close, day off, open. My husband asked if I ticked somebody off. No, just life in retail.

Tomorrow with be hardest, but hubby is off, and hopefully, we'll go work out together after I get home.

Have to go now. Work is calling me. emoticon


Having a Fight With Myself

Friday, February 19, 2010

My mind wants to go exercise. It's totally in the mood. "Let's go! Whoo-hoo! Ready, set, go, go, go!"

My body is not really with the program. "Yeah, you know that four hours of sleep we got last night? Not so much of the enough, that. Very tired. Let's just snuggle up right here on the couch and have a little nap. Or a long one. Sleep is good."

I'd really like to go to the gym.

Hello. It's an hour after I started this entry. I fell asleep sitting up.

Body won, apparently. Well, the gym is open until 10. I may make it yet.

    It's not a great idea to work out when you are this tired. You're more likely to pull muscles and get strains. Listen to your body and rest. Tomorrow, renewed, you can work out all the harder.

    I feel like my mind and body are ALWAYS struggling about this. I hope you made it to the gym but if you're that tired and didn't, then at least hopefully you got some rest :-)

Of exercise, binging, and other things.

Wednesday, February 17, 2010

I did my exercising today. But I was starving afterward. I had a hot dog, which might not have been the best thing, but I'm still within all my counts. I just have to be careful for the rest of the night. I have two things in reserve to munch on if I feel I need to: a can of tuna (which I need to eat, anyway, for the protein), and a can of turnip greens. I'm a Southern girl, and I love my turnip greens.

It's Ash Wednesday. I wish I could have made it to church today. My husband went before going in to work, but by the time I made it home, he was already gone. At least I don't have to be up early tomorrow, so I'll get some time with him tonight. If I don't crash first. emoticon

I have fought the urge to binge today, though. I guess it's a victory that I didn't binge, but it scares me because I know from experience I can usually only hold off a binge for so long before something happens. That something is usually eating and eating until I'm in pain, and even past that point. But I can't look too far ahead. I didn't binge today. And today is all I can control -- not even today, but just this one moment. Right now, I am not binging. Victory!

    Its good to eat a little something after you work out, helps replenish the body. When I'm craving hot dogs I eat veggie dogs which taste exactly the same to me and only have 50-90 cals depending on brand.

One Day Off

Tuesday, February 16, 2010

I took Valentine's Day off this week. We had no money (and I mean NO money) to go anywhere or do anything special, so we stayed home and had a little party.

With drinking and munchies.

I don't plan on doing it often, but every once in a while, I think it's good just not to worry about what that handful of Doritos is going to do to your nutrition counts. Also, the one thing my hubby was able to do for me was get me a package of those cookies where you can break off the number you want and bake just that number. We baked six of them, and I had four. emoticon emoticon The rest went into the freezer.

But other than that one day, I've been doing okay. I've had the hardest time with fat lately -- I keep going over. Today, I'm well over. (Hot dogs for dinner.) But calories are still under. I'm just shy of carbs and protein. I had planned on exercising, but the day just went away, and I didn't. Why is that so hard for me to do? And now, I need to start getting ready for bed. Early day tomorrow. Ugh.


Not so bad today.

Thursday, February 11, 2010

I've been calmer today. I think I might be adjusting to the shocker on Monday. I know it'll be in the back of my mind for the next three months, but last night was rough. It hasn't been as bad today.

My eating has been fine today, too. I need to get back to exercising, now that things are calming down a little in my system. It's just hard to do, after a long day of work, especially when that long day is spent on your feet. But I was feeling better when I was working out, and there's nothing better for stress, right? Besides, with the lower calorie intake, I'm losing weight pretty quickly. The best way to keep my skin from getting too saggy is to make sure I build muscle at the same time.

But now, I have to go to bed. It's ad day tomorrow, which means I have to be at work at six in the morning. Ugh.
