Ugh, mondays. I hate them but I love them, time to get back into the routine. Started off this morning without my workout, but it was well worth it to hit that snooze to finish a grrrreeeattt dream I was having. Isn't it great when you wake up from a dream and then you go back to sleep right where you left off? Glad I got to finish it up - great start to my week, except now feeling guilty about not working out, but will have to do it tonight when I get home.
I have officially switched into my annual HOLIDAY STRESSING mode - I have to finish 90% of my shopping by this weekend as we are heading to WV next Tuesday for Thanksgiving and we always celebrate Christmas while we are there. On a good note, my shopping will be done which allows time for festive, fun things during the month of December. But time just crept up on me, WOW, next week is really Thanksgiving. I better get a move on, should have been shopping alot earlier but it's really hard to be in a shopping mood prior to Thanksgiving.
I really need to get my workouts in this week, need the extra stress relief and this week will complete 3 weeks of P90X so looking forward to being in recovery phase next week for a little break. Been hitting it hard and have to just survive this week of torture, then a break. Gotta step up the running so I can do the 5K on Thanksgiving. Always a challenge - I love it.
Happy Monday everyone.

Wishing everyone a Super Saturday, gonna be a great one here in VA Beach. Weather is gonna be perfect for our high school football playoff game this afternoon. Go Dolphins.
Did my morning workout - P90X yoga, I am still so sore from doing so many P90X push-ups yesterday. Didn't realize there were so many different styles of push-ups, I don't think they missed any that's for sure. I have definitely found that push-ups are a great weakness of mine, but before it's all over, I'm gonna be the push-up master, lol.
Having mongolian chicken for dinner, yummy. My daughter is taking her niece and nephew to the sold out Justin Bieber concert tonight, glad it's her and not me. Thousands and thousands of screaming tweenies. Glad those days are over for me, but excited the grandkids get to experience the fun things in life. They've got Bieber fever.
Gonna enjoy some hubby alone time tonight, all the kiddies will be gone tonight - woo hoo !!!!!! Doesn't happen very often so looking forward to a quiet evening with hubby and my mongolian chicken. Ahhhh, the simple things in life. What fun are YOU enjoying today?????

I've been seriously eating myself to death or so it seems. I have increased my workouts to 3500 calories per week, which is great, I'm feeling awesome. But with the added workouts, my calorie intake has increased dramatically. I was acustomed to eating a minimum of 1200 -1500 calories a day, now my minimum is 1700-2000, WOW, that's a lot more food.
It seems I am eating constantly, all day long, Do you know how many veggies snacks it takes to make 1700? ALOT. I am just soooo tired of eating all day long, I need to eat more at my meals but my stomach is just not that big, I don't like to eat til I'm miserably full. I'm eating all the right things (lots of fruits, veggies, lean meats) but I am sooo miserably stuffed and constantly shoveling it all in.
Anyone out there have this problem???? and what's the solution????
