I can't believe we're in February
Loving my "bootcamp" and hope to continue on in these theme for the rest of the month. Tonight I had fish tacos planned but by the time I picked at the potatoes my daughter made, I was down to three fish sticks no tortilla
Whatever, I am in range again!
Super Bowl is going to be a challenge. All through the holidays when I want like really trashy food I tell myself,"wait for Super Bowl" I guess I'll need to change that self talk. This year we are going to my uncle's. There will be hot dogs, nachos, salads, desserts, hot wings and lot's more. We are a foodie family and this is when all the cooks take a break and we basically do Costco crap all day. It's a good thing I can't add beer to my day this time. I am going to limit myself to only the stuff I really don't eat any other time of the year which is nachos and a kraut dog.
Disneyland is at the end of the month so I'm going to try and rack up 1000 fitness minutes before I go. I want to stay in range and work hard so that the week of vacation I am "programmed" for movement and better choices. I also am nervous about the drive on my back, so the more T-Tapp the better. It will be interesting emotionally as well, I am from Orange County and anyone who knows me knows I am perpetually homesick. We moved to Northern California ten years ago to raise the kids and I have only these last few years been able to function without Wellbutrin. We will not be visiting family or friends (I have friends that live right across the street from Disneyland and some of them even work in the park...yikes) because we don't have enough time. This is a trip we've been promising the family for a long time so we're going to be selfish. Our oldest children were born in Anaheim and miss Southern California like we do so it will be fun but I am preparing to "be okay" with coming home. Last year when we visited DD in Santa Barbara, I cried until Stockton. SO, I think some fitness and confidence with good nutrition will help.
Valentine's Day is also this month. I am the only one in my family who doesn't like chocolate so although I give treats to DH and the kids, it's one of the only holidays that doesn't stress me out. Jalepeno brittle is my idea of heaven and I don't get that outside of Christmas so.....hurray.
It's a short month and boy has the time been flying so I want to make the most of each day. I'm going to have to to reach my goals.
What are you up to this fine February???
