Up and down day yesterday

Sunday, January 05, 2014

Good morning everyone,

Interesting day yesterday. I crashed in the morning after I blogged and fell back to sleep for another three hours. My sister told me it is all psychological and I am not really tired. I think I am and if my body is calling for sleep I am taking it.

She came and took my girls to cinema since I didn't want to go out. She does not do that often so it was nice break.

I walked with hubby for 35 minutes, he does not usually exercise with me so I was very happy about that! Then folded some clothes and washed some wares.

My sister bought cupcake mix and cupcake pans for me for christmas. She loves for me to bake for her. She asked me last week why exercise so much? If I rode in the morning why walk in the afternoon. I do not think she really understands why I exercise. She indicated that she really bought the cupcakes so I can make it for her... Sigh the cupcake pan is beautiful, Rachel Ray pans, but I didn't bother to say anything about the fact that the gift was something for me to make for her. Sis if you are reading this I love you, you make me laugh sometimes. I made the cupcakes yesterday for my family while they were out. They then brought pizza home, which yes, I had two slices. I also had two cupcakes with some coconut icecream. I know that I had less than I usually would have. Yes I would eat more pizza and cupcakes usually. But I am disappointed that I ate the pizza and cupcakes instead of saying no.

Some good friends of mine went to to the mall and found and bought a ball attachment for me so I could pump up my exercise ball! They rock! Hubby helped me pump it up, boy was that hard! Then when everyone was asleep I did a 30 minute ball work out with a DVD I have. That workout used to be easy for me to do. I was stoked that I could still do it but bummed that it was harder to do.

So lots of sleep, two sets of exercise. Not so hot eating, ah well, 2 out of 3 is better than 0 out of 3. I am blogging in detail for now to help get me back on track. I hope people who know me and read this are not distressed by how frank I am being. Understand that I am in this position because I try to be strong for everyone, internalize my stress and emotionally eat. By getting my feelings out here it helps me to make better choices and become healthier.

Today is getting the children ready for school. Ironing, Wash and comb hair. Pack bags and do school work with the kids. In between I hope to cook lunch and pick up some fruits and veggies for the week. I would also like to do some form of exercise. Maybe walk again and ride with oldest daughter. It is raining so it may have to be some DVDs inside. While I was writing this, my hubby and youngest made breakfast. I have such an awesome family!

Keep SParking!

    Awesome job on the exercise and sleep. Our poor eating habits are hard to break. I have been struggling with the poor eating habits for awhile as well. One step at a time. We can do it!

    I call this ying and yang. I will eat on the small plate or use some tool that is suggested we use and then I will go drink wine or snack on nuts. So I think 2 out of 3 is not bad. It could have been worst. I always say to myself, if you did not exercise could you imagine how much heavier you'd be. But life is happening while we are losing weight and we are learning behaviours to manage life while we lose. I have accepted that I'll always have to eat mindfully - I'm not a natural when it comes to managing that aspect.

    I tend to make cookies on Sunday and in the evening, so I can pack them and take them to work and share around rather than on a Friday or Saturday when I will devour them all.
