Daily Update - Oct 31st, 2012

Wednesday, October 31, 2012

Ok. So I had a crummy day in terms of mood, but I didn't do too badly I don't think overall. I tried to make myself eat a little healthier by the end of the day, so here's my list:

Must Do:

1. Do 30 min cardio - did 32 minutes = 1.07
2. Track food - did = 1
3. Drink 8 cups water - I drank 9 cups = 1.125
4. Brush Teeth - did = 1
5. Go to therapist - did = 1

Remaining List:

1. Spend time with Mervin - did = 1
2. Relax for 15 min - did = 1
3. Stay within calorie range - I was under by less than 50 calories = 0.5
4. Eat 5 freggies - only had 1 = 0.2
5. Go to Weight Management Class - did = 1

8.895/5 = 177.9% emoticon I knew I didn't do badly. I was upset at myself because I'd started my day off very poorly (chips and chocolate for breakfast), but I tried to remind myself that I could bring myself around and do better. There was an awesome thing that happened later on in the day as well. I went to Kendra's and got myself measured for my 1 month measurements. If you want the breakdown, you can see it on my Sparkpage. However, the total inches lost was *insert drumroll* 3.75 inches. emoticon I was very happy about that.

Today, I am starting my day off with sleeping until a little before 2 pm (because I didn't end up falling asleep until 5:30 am or so) and I have a really bad headache that might turn into a migraine at any moment. I'm also feeling really worried about work and what will happen if I go. I don't like my work and that's affecting if I want to go or not. So, we'll see. Here's today's list:

Must Do:

1. Do 30 min strength training -
2. Track food -
3. Drink 8 cups water -
4. Brush Teeth -
5. Go to work -

Remaining List:

1. Spend time with Mervin -
2. Relax for 15 min -
3. Stay within calorie range -
4. Eat 5 freggies -
5. Have a shower -

I think exercise and going to work will be the biggest challenges of my day. I only have another 2 hours until the start of my shift and the way I feel right now, I'm not going. It's not that I don't think I can do it. It's just that I get anxious when I think of going. I have some techniques to try to control it, but lately I'm thinking that finding a new job is the only way I'll really get over it since I dislike this one so much. Wish me luck everyone (either that I'll apply to a new job or go to this one).

    thinking of you. it is hard to go someplace that you dread and that makes you anxious even thinking about going...
    hope there is a break soon--a new job or beginning to like this one!
