Once I am healthier I will ____

Monday, January 28, 2013

Thank you to everyone who sent me some get well soon vibes! I am finally back at work today. My ears are still hurting a little, but I am much better now. Work is very different now in this new position. I am still not used to all of it, but I am trying my best. We are working late nights and Saturdays now when there is work to do. I am not busy right now, but I know that will change soon. Every time I ask for something to do, there is plenty to do. I just have a break right now so I am taking it. I am still not used to doing so much after laying around for so long!

I finally got my paycheck, so I want to get some groceries to start making my batch meals since I will be working at night! I don't know when they will start ordering dinner for everyone, but I don't want take out every night. I could just get salad, but that isn't filling enough for me. I usually just eat salad as a side. Even getting chicken on it doesn't seem to fill me up!

When I was laying at home sick last week, there was so much I wanted to do. I even wanted to make a list, but I was too tired to do so! I tried to keep a mental list of everything I want to do now that I am better. Well, I am mostly better! Mentally I am MUCH better!

Attend 10 yoga classes
Re-start 5K training
Sign up for 5K races
Walk on the treadmill
Go back to Zumba once a week
Go to lunch/dinner with friends I have not seen in a long time
Have a game or movie night
Save more money & pay off more bills

As I am writing this, I am also thinking - Once I am healthier... well once I am over being sick 100% there is a lot I want to do physically. I also feel like I am already healthier with my eating. I have made so many changes since I started Spark. I do feel healthier even when I am sick. I still tried to eat healthy foods while I was trying to get better. I added more veggies & fruits to my diet, and I want to continue doing that! Even when I was feeling bleck, I made a homemade soup with beans and pasta and tons of veggies.

Hopefully everyone has a wonderful rest of the week. Keep pushing towards your January goals! I need to sit down and really figure out my Feb goals. I would like to be at 155 by the Feb! I am at 157 now. I know I can do it - I just really need to up my exercise!

    I'm so glad you are better.With salad I find I need to have a cup of soup and that seems to do the trick. It is good to set goals when you aren't feeling well. emoticon Take care and try not to be all work and no play.

    I hope you continue to feel better....there has been so much illness going around this winter.

That is great you are going to make batch meals to take to work. Night shifts can be hard on eating. I worked nights for a time and took my food to work. It helped a lot.
