I used the excuses of SuperBowl parties, family coming into town, and going out of town to visit even more family to throw my hard work into the wind. I'm pet/house sitting for a family for a week starting on Tuesday. I'm going to use that whole week to get my habits back in check! Using today and tomorrow as buffer days- getting healthy groceries, packing up all my weights and equipment to take to the house with me, and setting many small da... Sun, 17 Feb 2013 18:03:48 EST Day 24- the attack of the flu! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5221705 So this week has been horrible! Over the weekend Mat and I had visitors from out of town. I did well on my eating and didn't splurge too much. Then I got hit hard with the flu. I haven't been able to hold anything down except for saltine crackers last night and today. The rest of the week was spent on the couch in cold sweats. Today I'm up and moving around the house a bit. And man oh man am I starving! I don't want to overdo it though so I'm sticking to crackers, Sprite, and water. I'm going... Thu, 24 Jan 2013 13:35:26 EST Day 8 Part 2 http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5197871 So I'm a little stressed right now due to something I can't even deal with until tomorrow anyways. Almost immediately I start getting cravings for comfort food. My mind keeps going over all the yummy things that would make it better. But all those yummy things would be a step back from my progress. It's too late to be doing any workouts to calm down my nerves and I really need to get some sleep. Maybe a cup of tea or something. Some breathing exercises might help, too. Wish this would have co... Tue, 8 Jan 2013 22:37:33 EST Day 8 http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5197288 Totally nailed my workout today! Got up to 3.2 on the treadmill! Woo! Someday I'll get back up to my 6.5 that I reached when I was in high school. Did abs and a few yoga moves as well. On top of that, did a bunch of cleaning around the house. That should count as a workout! Haha! Fighting some cravings after the workout though. Already had my snack earlier so I'm drinking water and trying to hold out a little longer for dinner. Doesn't help that my boyfriend is eating Hershey kisses in front ... Tue, 8 Jan 2013 16:35:18 EST Day 5 http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5191625 Today has been a great day! I've scheduled out all my meals for the day, set aside time for me and my boyfriend to take the dogs for a walk, and even got a much needed haircut! <BR> <img src="http://photos-ak.sparkpeople.com/nw/7/5/l757908544.jpg"> <BR> <BR> Now to just watch football for the rest of the day and relax on my rest day! Sat, 5 Jan 2013 13:19:20 EST Day 3 http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5187664 Well, I slept in today. Didn't mean to either for once. I must have woken up just enough to turn my alarm off and then I was out again. Luckily my dogs wake me up at 7:30 no matter what day it is (if I'm still in bed.) I've only got time for a 30 min walk on the treadmill and then I have to get ready for work. The rest of my routine will have to be done tonight. Going to get a bunch of small chores done this morning so I don't have to worry about them later. Thu, 3 Jan 2013 08:11:48 EST Day 1 http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5185431 Woke up at my regular time today and with my new schedule I don't have to leave for work until 9! Which is a good thing because I really had to talk myself into getting started on my walk. I'm a big wimp when it comes to cold and it's 40 degrees outside! Brr! Can't wait until I get a treadmill! Once I got going with my dog Sugar it was pretty good until the last stretch of our route- uphill for the last quarter mile. But with a little help from Sugar pulling me up, we did the 1.34 miles in 30... Wed, 2 Jan 2013 06:40:20 EST
