Home today

Thursday, April 25, 2013

Still not feeling great so I am staying home today. I figure not talking to anyone will be a good way to rest my throat. I plan to rest and get a few things done around home like working on my monthly budget for May and putting my gear together for my scrapbooking crop tomorrow.

I am a bit achy and tired but I am thinking that I will also include a bit of exercise today as well, perhaps a few 10 minute sessions rather than trying to tackle a longer 45minute or hour long session.

Hopefully today's time off will help me be fully well tomorrow.

Dangerous place

Wednesday, April 24, 2013

I don't feel good. I have a sore throat and I am achy everywhere. This can be a dangerous place for me. When I am sick I feel sorry for myself and when that happens I seek the comfort of food. Ice cream might soothe my sore throat, I think. Or maybe if I eat I'll have more energy. I know that these things aren't necessarily true and that actually the best thing I can do for myself is to take a couple more Motrin and get some sleep. So with that I am off to bed.

Better than I imagined!

Sunday, April 21, 2013

Well the house is quiet again after a super fun, busy, noisy and chaotic weekend with my nephew (7) my girlfriend who lives about 3 hours North of here and her son (also 7). Hubby and I live a pretty quiet life in comparison to this lively weekend!

On Friday I blogged about my concerns with eating on my food plan, and getting enough rest, water and exercise while we had guests.

Food was no problem at all, yeah! Planning my meals ahead of time as another Spark Person suggested was awesome advice, I got a lot of exercise on Friday and a bit less than I would normally have gotten yesterday and today but still I did get some. Sleep was a bit lacking so I plan to get to bed a bit earlier than normal tonight.

All in all I am pleased with how things went. Next hurdle will be vacation with my mom for a few days at the beginning of next month. After this weekend am feeling confident that our trip will go well too.

    It's always good to plan ahead especially when you feel there could be bumps in the way.

This weekend could be tricky!

Friday, April 19, 2013

I'm not overly worried about it but I am concerned enough to post here and seek support.

My friend Barb and her 7 y-o are on there way here for a weekend visit. Hubby and I are borrowing our 7 y-o nephew for the weekend too. The two boys are best buds and I am certain we are all going to have a grand time!

Okay here's the but ..... I don't want to get so caught up in cooking, cleaning, visiting and playing that I forget about connecting here which is truly changing my life! That being said I am making a commitment to check in all weekend, to chart my food and make sure to get enough sleep, water and exercise. The rest of the weekend, I am just going to relax and play!

Thanks to all of you for being my support team and for holding me accountable!

    Sounds like a super weekend planned, hope it's going well. And the checking in, too--I know how that can help. Good luck!

    One thing that might help is to log as much of your food ahead of time that you know you will be eating. That way you will have a bit of a head start. And then relax and enjoy the visit.

What are you smiling at?

Thursday, April 18, 2013

Another rainy day in Michigan, but the temps are in the 70's, yeah! And so I smile!

Working a long day today, staying late for an evening Board meeting, but had an on site yoga class at lunchtime. And so I smile!

Piles and piles of paperwork to get to on my desk in the office, but I have a job I love. And so I smile!

Out of town company couldn't come last weekend because of bad weather, but we were able to reschedule for this weekend. And so I smile!

Behind on email and phone calls that I need to return, all from friends and family that I love. And so I smile!

Staying consistent with exercise has always been a challenge but it's becoming a regular part of my routine since I found SparkPeople. And so I smile!

Come to think of it, what's not to smile about! Join me?
