My week was off to a pretty shabby start, but the spell has been broken. I got home last night and caught up with my workouts and I even satisfied the chocolate craving with a great choc protein shake. I sipped it while riding my bike watching Survivor. I just love that show. Anyhoo....
This morning I got up, on time, completed my P90X workout and had a protein shake on my drive into work today. So my day is off to a fantastic start, finally I feel like I'm back in the game. I wasn't really sitting the bench all week, just didn't feel like doing anything but I did. And today, I really felt like being on top of the world with my workouts, and proud to say I feel like I am back on top.
Tonight sis and I are going for a run, probably a 4-miler, just a slow and easy pace. Mainly to blow off the steam from the day and give me the energy boost I need for the rest of the evening. Breakfast for dinner tonight - woo hoo.
I feel soooooo much better today. How is everyone out in SP world feeling today? What are you doing to make today great?

Last night's workout really left me feeling depressed. It was P90X pushups, I totally stink at push-ups and can only do a few. I know I will get better at it because each time I do it, I do a little better, so I know it's a work in progress, but still was feeling kinda down.
Dinner was ok, just leftovers. Dinner conversation consisted of daughter and DH joking me about our road snacks. We are going on a road trip to WV on Monday, and they were "doggin" me that they don't get good snacks anymore, too much healthy crap. "we used to get sodas, and chips, and cookies and my favorite, peach ring candy" my daughter said. "We can't have it unless she has a coupon", DH says. I didn't let them get me riled up, I just smiled. So if it's junk they want, then so be it. I will pack my carrots, trail mix, fruit and fiber one bars and bottled water. I'm gonna let them go to Walmart and buy what they want. We will see if they actually get up off their butts and go get it or if it is just easier to eat what mom has already packed, health crap, ha ha ha.
Cinnamon rolls went into the oven shortly after dinner, I had enough calories to have one but it would have put me over in the "fat" allowance for the day and I didn't want to do that, so I didn't have one. Everyone else enjoyed one or two, I was so mad and upset, I just called a "time out" for myself. I told everyone I was in a meltdown, leave me alone, and I went straight to bed. I know I am blowing the whole night out of proportion with the cinnamon bun thing and the no good road snack thing, but I was in a hormonal meltdown, so I went to bed. I realized I was turning into Linda Blair in the Exorcist, my heading was spinning so the only thing I could do was retreat to bed, before my head exploded. I'm calling lastnight my "cinnamon roll meltdown" - Wow, I sure made a mountain out of a mole hill, but I really, really, really wanted that cinnamon roll.
Woke up this morning to TOM, how wonderful. Felt horrible, still in a crabby, cranky, witchy mood spilled over from last night. My sister looked at me with a serious face and said "Sis, you can get to work on this", and she takes the broom out of the closet.
Gotta shake this horrible hormonal nightmare I'm in today. Have to finish shopping at lunch time today, stop at Subway for take-out dinner so I can catch up with a great workout tonight, definitely need a stress buster.

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?????
