Getting up at 5:30am to work out is hard, but it is the only way I'm successful. I never go to the gym if I leave it for the evening. I am finding that I'm much happier in the morning when I workout. My two-year-old probably appreciates a non-sleepy/non-grumpy mom when she wakes up at 7:00am.
I had a NSV today! I had the intense urge for something sweet this afternoon. This seems to happened to me everyday at around 4pm. I grabbed an almond joy of my daughters trick-or-treat bag and instead of mindlessly shoving it into my mouth I held it inmy hand and thought about it. I realized that I was hungry and that the candy wouldn't keep my hunger at bay until dinner. I decided to have an ounce of almonds and a bottle of water instead. Small, I know, but this is major progress for me. I gained this weight because I checked out mentally when it came to food. Being mindful of how, what and when I eat is a great step!
On another note, I am trying to gather all my immunization records to turn into my nursing school before classes star in Jan. my childhood Dr is no longer in practiceso I struck out getting my records from him and my high school doesn't have an immunization record for me. Great, huh? So I went in yesterday and got 5 vaccines (hep B, DTap, MMR, Polio and influenza). It made me really appreciate how not fun this probably is for babies. My arm is sore and I'm another step closer to staring school. :)
