Blog Post #121 - Nervousness
Friday, August 26, 2011
It’s Friday! Oh, how I love Fridays. Also, it’s the last time I’ll have to come in to work on Fridays! This is all very exciting.
What’s not exciting? I might not meet my goal for September 5th. Like I mentioned in my last blog, I had company for two nights so we ended up going out to eat twice. I made semi-healthy choices but my focus was on enjoying myself so I know I ate much more than I should have. I’m hoping it doesn’t derail my efforts too much, but it certainly didn’t help me get any closer to my goals.
I think once I’m down to working 2 days a week, and going to school full-time, it’ll be easier to watch my calories. I know it doesn’t make much sense, but an erratic schedule keeps me moving and makes me less susceptible to those dreadful hunger pangs. When I’m sitting at my desk at work, it’s so hard to ignore the hunger. We shall see.
I have been doing more “exercises” at home, so that’s an improvement. I am doing my regular physiotherapy routine, which is basically all leg exercises; but I’ve added a few abdominal exercises as well. I’m doing basic crunches to tone the bigger muscles and other exercises that work out my stabilizers as well. I kind of like adding this to my routine. Even though I can’t do cardiovascular exercise just yet, at least I’m doing something! I might try to incorporate some arm exercises soon too! I just need to get a resistance band or some free weights.
I’m just going to keep on truckin’ and hope that I make good choices for myself and that I’m able to make it close to my goal.
