Happy Thursday!

Thursday, April 18, 2013

So far this week has been really good. This is the most on track I have been consistently in a really long time and it feels good. I canít lie that I havenít had cravings and moments that I feel like eating out or eating more then I should or eating things I shouldnít but I keep in mind my goals, who I am doing this for (the weight loss challenge if I win part of the winnings go to Amanda the Panda) and it helps me make better decisions.

I got up early to work out for the 2nd time this week which for me deserves a big old woohoo! Itís been hard to wake up early Tues and Thurs to work out early because I go to Zumba Mon and Wed nights. I guess the fact that I just worked out the night before (and showered!) it just makes it harder then it needs to be to get up. Anyway the fact that I did both Tues and Thurs makes me really happy.

This morning was BL yoga that now that I think about it probably has been over two years since I did it last. Since before my wrist surgery my wrist would hurt most of the time I donít think I did it much then and I know for sure I havenít done it after my surgery. Itís been a struggle of mine getting back into my work out dvd collection especially strength related. The cardio ones have been ok, like Tae Bo, because it doesnít require massive amounts of planks or push ups or anything else where I have to put all my weight on my wrist. On a day to day my wrist is really good. But putting all my weight on it for longer then a little bit is still painful and I need to work on building that up gradually. Iím scared to hurt it again which doesnít help but I know I need to be easy on it but yet start pushing to use it and gain that strength back. So I decided I badly needed to reincorporate yoga back into my routine and I gave myself permission to take breaks when I needed and be ok to modify. That for some reason is hard for me but I did it this morning and boy was that tough! But I did it and Iím sure tomorrow I will be feeling it. Oh and I have a kink in my neck from sleeping wrong and I still did it! See that no excuses thing is going really well for me right now :) I bet it even feels better then it would have if I wouldnít have worked out since I got all stretched out this morning.

I have been between 1200-1300 calories the last 3 days so that is really good for me. Food has been my struggle and Iím feeling really good about it. This weekend will be interesting because the cooks at camp make really good food and itís mostly healthy but they have treats for the kids like fresh baked cookies (which are so freaking good). I know the workouts will be running around with the kids all day and I will do my best for eating with what they have. But I also will probably have to have me one of those cookies though too :) Or maybe Iíll skip the cookie and go with a smore instead. Decisions, decisions. The other problem I foresee with camp is that you need energy. You donít get a lot of sleep and the kids are crazy and run you ragged (in a good way). So they have pop for the volunteers so you bring a coffee cup to hide it from the kids because seriously they have enough energy, you donít need to add pop on top of it! You can have coffee too but the coffee isnít very good and they donít have flavored creamers so for the most part I stay away from that because I donít like coffee black. I never drink pop in my regular life. Unless I get a mixed drink at a bar, I just donít drink it. I have one cup of coffee (with natural creamer and sugar) or a Strawberry Lemonade Starbucks Refresher (Iím slightly addicted). So the question is do I get some of those to take with me or do I just go with the pop that is readily available and have easy access too? The Starbucks drinks have 60 calories in them as opposed to 230 plus calories in a can of pop (diet pop is so gross to me and my body reacts really bad to the fake sugar). The more I think about it the more I think the best I idea is to bring some of the Starbucks drinks with me so I can have some energy but not all the calories. Ok thanks for letting me talk that out so I could make a decision. You guys rock. Iím going to try to track the best I can but with my food in the hands of the cooks I know it will be a little difficult to be accurate but Iíd like to have an idea of how I did.

Anyways there is my rambling update for this super rainy Thursday. Hope everyone has a good one!

    Glad you're feeling more 'together.' I'd say my eating was much better for several days now but I had Reese's PB Cups and Pirate's Booty for supper last night...and Pirate's Booty for breakfast. Was up yesterday from 2 AM, so I may possibly have 'needed' the insane calories but too bad on the choices. It becomes: whatever is near and TASTY when I'm that zonked!

    ay..i have been watching my fodo too after the dietbet started...yay and remember all the little animals who are waiting to be taken home..i cant get one till I get my own 2 more years tentative..

Good luck with camp..I wud suggest taking ur drinks with u..op for 230 is just too much damage esp when ur trying to lose and be good to ur body...

take care
