Feel absolutely WONDERFUL about my day today!!!! emoticon

It actually started last night....
I'm usually terrible in the evening, especially when I stay up late. I'm off work on the weekends (I'm a school teacher.) so sometimes on Saturday I stay up late. (One of the few days I can physically stay up past 9pm.) If I'm up past that time, I usually get physically hungry and that's when the bingeing begins. I choose 1 snack carefully, but my head decides it isn't satisfying so I go rummaging for more. Often times, this behavior leads to a "snack" times 3. But not last night!!! emoticon I talked myself out of it and went to bed.

This morning I got in a 20 min walk after breakfast and then finished working on school work - lesson plans, grading papers. I finished school work around 4pm and then played a game of Monopoly with my son. I made dinner and was contemplating my evening walk, not looking forward to it because it is 48 degrees outside! emoticon I'm a Florida girl thru and thru - there's no way I was gonna go for a walk in that kinda weather! But instead of saying no to my plan, I found another way!

A couple months ago I had bought a Jillian Michaels Kickboxing dvd on sale for $5. emoticon The big draw for me was the free Shape Magazine subscription that came with it. Each of those magazines cost $5 each so a whole year for $5....yes please! Well tonight was the first time I tried the video and I loved it! emoticon There are 3 videos on the dvd, each one 20 minutes of cardio and toning. Tonight I chose to do the video inside instead of walking outside in the cold weather. Non Scale Victory for me!!! emoticon

Progress on my Goals -
emoticon emoticon emoticon Eating:
I have bought meal prep containers and the ingredients for my work lunches. Tomorrow evening (we have MLK Day off tomorrow), I will make my lunches for the week so I can just grab them and go each morning.
emoticon emoticon emoticon Exercise:
I have decided on a schedule for my cardio. Weekends will be 2 walks of 20 mins each - one after breakfast and the other after dinner. I'm off work on the weekends so there's no excuse why I can't. The work week is a different story. Mondays and Thursdays are a bit hectic with the kids going to karate those evenings. For that reason, I am choosing those days as my rest days and Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Fridays as my work week cardio days.

I feel like this routine is really gonna work for me! Here's to a great week! Happy Sunday, yall!
