So I was able to buy a cord to link lap top to a monitor ... nothing like having your portable unit become a giant cpu. OH well. At least I can get on SparkPeople everyday at home.
I resisted the books at the library but found a bunch that I have been interested in at Goodwill and spent way too much money. OH well. At least I will read them and can share them with others.
I have decided to not get a gym membership. I really don't have money and none have impressed me that much. I am tracking how many steps I take at work (yes at work only). I hope that by doing at least that much maybe it will kick me in the butt to do more. I really want to but the cold and snow/sleet/ice/dark just has me inside. Yes I have videos and so does SparkPeople and I have no excuse to not do them. My intention is that getting on the fitness page to log my steps taken will force me to want to log more.
I have been watching what I eat, not tracking so much but watching it. Doing much better now that I have gum everywhere. Thank you to Extra for making such yummy flavors like root beer float and mint chocolate chip ice cream and rainbow sherbet and orange cream-sicle and all the other yummy flavors. Any time I want to snack (especially on sweets) I pop in a stick and chug some water.
Lent has helped too. I gave up fast food and coffee shops. I know that is something I should do anyway and it really doesn't bring me closer to God (I am doing other things for that) but it can't hurt. I have cheated only once... ate a few fries my friend had. But only a few :)
I am actually cooking at home again. Nothing fancy but at least I'm doing it. Gonna dust off the crock pot tomorrow!
Thinking of treating myself to a massage. Lot's of family stuff going on and have been completely stressed out. Maybe Friday... I don't work! WOOHOO!!!
Well, I need to get to bed - another Lent thing is I want to be in bed by 10:30 or earlier ... well I missed my goal tonight but first time in days which is actually really good for me. Again doesn't bring me closer to God but sure is nice. Tonight is a mulligan - I was chatting with a friend about family stuff and getting stuff off my chest. Totally needed it.
Well, have a good night/morning! TTFN!
