It was a great week!

Saturday, March 02, 2013

So why do I feel so down? Starting preg testing again, it sucks going in so hopeful and coming out feeling like a popped balloon. My dog Patsy was so cute this morning, she could tell I was upset and came up and kept licking my face. So sweet when they know your down. It's actually a bad time right now, things did get better this week with job situations but they could be more steady. I wont keep blabbing about this it's just heavy on my mind at this point in time. Each month gets a little more relaxed so that's good.

Exercise this week was awesome! I got my 3100 calorie burn by Friday night! I feel like ever since since Scott starting working a 8-5 job, I feel guilty if I am not home with him at night. Water aerobics has been backed up to 6-7 pm so I don't usually get a shower and make it home til 7:40. But I gotta do what I gotta do. I wish he would get a membership there too, but it isn't his thing, All he would do is run and I would feel rushed to leave earlier than I wanted. I just wish He had something else happening right now to keep him busy and make me feel less guilty. There is wall of fame at the gym with ppl who have transformed in some way weight loss or body building. They change it out once a month. I showed the gym class manager my thing on spark and she wants to add me to the next round!

My motivation this week has been good for a change, haven't been motivated in awhile. I have been running 3 miles before water aerobics. Since running outside has been nasty with all the snow. It was a good week. It was a good week for eating too. Haven't eaten out in over a week and it is showing on the scale for sure. Waking up at 160! It's strange not running a half marathon for the first time in 3 yrs this spring. Usually I am in running mode, which means eating more mode. But instead I am exercising and just learning to balance and that's ok. Taking a break from distance running has been nice. I am all about finding joy in exercise right now and fitting it into my life. Not Running and fitting everything else into my life. It's been good, it's just been a change.

Calories burned for the week! Steps over the week! My only goal for today is to work on metal work door, Scott and I started like 4 months ago lol And I am gonna cook! Gonna be an awesome day! Have a good one guys!

    Telling you to not worry about the pregnancy thing would make me sound like a complete hypocrite, lol :) But honestly, I don't test each month. I just can't. I'm not one of those people that gets the early tests and tests days before my period is due...A) if you get a positive result before your period comes and then you get your period (chemical pregnancy) that is super depressing B) there just isn't any point in knowing early, you know? I have only ever tested if I'm late. Plus, I temp and do OPKs so I know exactly when I'm due for my guessing.

    Try not to get discouraged with the pregnancy thing. Long story short, we have lots of issues and the OB-GYN just reminded us on Tuesday that only 15% of women trying to get pregnant in a specific month will get pregnant that month. Plus, stress only makes it more difficult:)

    I really love your attitude! To me, enjoying exercise as part of your life is where it's at. Good for you. My eating has been less than good, but reading this inspires me to pull my act together. I'm making a good dinner. :)

    It sounds like you are having a good week with diet and exercise. You are really good at keeping your weight in a good range most of the time.

    Patsy sounds like such a sweet dog. I miss having dogs and cats. I wish my son wasn't allergic to them.
