Well, I'm Up...

Monday, October 01, 2012

I've been up doing homework for the past 2 hours, so I might as well go to the gym! Today will be exhausting.

Yesterday was a beautiful day, and I already regret not going out on my bike! :( I got groceries, took kids places, made it to church, and met up with a classmate to work on a project. But I'm hitting the gym this morning, because none of that stuff got my heart rate up. I ate pretty decent yesterday and got green vegetables twice yesterday! I've been doing a good job at finding fresh salad greens on clearance and then having them for lunches and dinners. I'm not crazy about taking a salad with me to school, it's such a pain. Sandwiches are easier. But I'm doing my best to keep things changing all the time so I get a variety of foods.

I'm still having trouble staying away from sweets; even when I eat well, I end up having an ice cream sandwich too! Worst time is bedtime when my kids are having their snack, I feel like I'm entitled to a snack too. When did it become such a routine for kids to have a bedtime snack? When I was a kid, we didn't have bedtime snacks. My kids think it's a punishment if they don't get one, even the big kids. I think it will be easier when they are grown and I don't have to do the bedtime-snack routine anymore. Except that's several years away yet. *sigh*

Well, the clock just chimed 5am, so it's time for me to get my swimsuit on and head to the gym. I think I will do weights and swimming, and tomorrow, rowing. I'm trying to stay off my foot and wear the boot more, because the pain has been out of control lately. :(

    Take good care of that foot and make sure it heals well. We don't want you to miss out on any more cycling!

    I have issues getting in the routine of a bedtime snack too. I just crave something fatty around 9 pm. Yesterday was beautiful! I was wondering why I didn't get my bike out either. Have a good swim!

    oh I can wait to get out of here and head to the pool. 60 minutes of water aerobics then a nap cause I worked the night shift. All will be right with the world. LOL
That is super your getting your greens. emoticon
This year I decided to juice the extra cucumbers I had and freeze them. The sure are a pretty green color. I will let you know how it works out in my veggie drink.
Cukes were 88 Cents here last winter and I was going thru 4 a week in my juice alone.
I sure hope your foot heals fast.
Have a super week.
