Trying Something New

Tuesday, February 05, 2013

Well. today is the start of a new page in the journal of me. Although exiting the bed this morning was a chore, I received the KICK of encouragement via my 2 year old to get me going. (my groin thanks him). A groggy me banged out 20 reps of rapid push-ups, followed by 7 painfully attained pull-ups.

Not much for a morning exercise, but I'm proud that I did something rather than nothing. I'm equally proud in the the strength of my door frame for not buckling under the pressure of holding me up for those 7 reps. Kudos Door Frame! yay you Too!!!

My plan today is to take a smart approach to snacking. usually at work I battle the racing to the vending machine to ward off the munchies, however I've come equipped with some carrots, and some cereal. Lunch is another task all together, I didn't have time to pack myself anything this morning with wrangling up the cattle (kids) so I'm going to have to leave work.(No the temptation!) leaving work to search for food is DANGEROUS..

I'm hungry, and I know there is healthy food out there, but I have to drive past all these fast food joints that just scream out to me!!! I need blinders.. or salad goggles. or a miniature eating healthy fairy who magically appears when I need the positive reinforcement. lol. I've been hanging out with my tykes to much.

So the quest begins.. the day has started. A deep breath.

    Welcome to Spark People! You've come complete with your own mascot!

Going out for lunch can be difficult, but there are actually some surprisingly good options out there if you have to pick something up quickly. We do sub places often (though not subway) and the surprising one is Wendy's. I've found several meals there that are not altogether unhealthy. A small chili & a sour cream and chive potato make for a filling non-fried lunch.

Have a fantastic Tuesday!
