It's Wednesday already?

So here's a quick update of what's going on. I finally went grocery shopping on Tuesday, so there is food in my house and it is 99% healthy! I made breakfast before work today and I actually ate it! lol I've gotten two days of exercise in, and have plans to go again today. Wednesday laziness has gotten to me the last 3 weeks and I am determined not to let that happen to me today! I did have soda Monday night, even though my plan was not not have any this week, considering I'd been having a fully leaded soda a day the last couple of weeks, one in 4 days is pretty good.

I'm in the middle of training this week and start my new job officially on Friday. Looking forward to it, and hoping I will have more time to blog soon after.

Weigh In

Well not concentrating on my weight loss has a price. In this case it's 3 lbs. As in I am up 3 lbs! Oh hell no! Do you know how long it takes me to lose 3 lbs? Like almost a month and yet I've gained that in 2 weeks! So I vow to go grocery shopping, bring my breakfast and lunch to work every day this week. Drink only water or Ice tea and exercise more than 3 days a week. I'm shooting for 5 days. I may not be able to post my daily goings on at this blog week, but I'm going to try to blog more than once a week this week as well. I've noticed how easy I've slipped in my habits since I stopped posting on a daily basis. So here is to a kick ass week! I hope you all have had better results than I.

I'm buried!

I'm buried in real life drama. My life seems to be crazy with training new girl in old job and training me in new job, family drama, my sister's sick cat that must be fed every 2-3 hours through a feeding tube, teenager on summer break needing to be entertained, house renovations that seem to be never ending. Why in the world I started that I have no idea. I'm a little nuts! I'm still finding time to exercise, I managed to get a Total Body workout class done tonight (no Step!) And I did it with a tender back. I slept wrong Thursday night and have been in pain ever since! My food has not been the best, but I haven't slipped back into my old ways either. I'm a little bit overwhelmed and my internet time has been shortened dramatically. I'm bummed that I can't read and respond to others blogs or even post on my own blog. I think once I get my nephew back to CA, my sister's cat back to her, and my kid back to school my life will regulate again. Until then my blog posts aren't going to be consistent. *Sigh* I think what I really need is a vacation. I hope I can come up with one soon!

Oh, and my cold is finally starting to go away. I sound really nasally but my throat is not nearly as sore as it has been!

The cold that won't go away

I'm incredibly frustrated right now. I am now at one week of being sick. That's twice so far this year that I've been sick and it just won't go away. I can count one 1 hand the number of times I've been sick in the last 10 years and now that I'm getting healthy, eating right and exercising and I get sick twice in a year. That's just wrong.

Food and exercise are on plan this week. My house is still a mess. The b-i-l is taking sweet time getting my floors done, but I can't really complain as it's free labor, it's just a pain not having my house to myself. I'm a bit anti-social so I'm having a hard time with peeps in my house all the time. In fact I had to leave my home and not return until 9:30 last night just so I could get a little peace and quiet.

Anyway, that's what's going on. Hope everyone else is having a better week than me!

Weekly Weigh In...

I went to my WW meeting today. I was expecting to stay the same or gain because I did not exercise as much as normal nor did I track my food. I actually showed a small loss of 3/4 lb. So I'm happy about that and encouraged to start tracking and getting back to my regular exercise program so I can see bigger losses.

I actually spent the whole day exercising. Doing this:


My brother-in-law is doing this for me in this room and my hallway:

wood floors... well bamboo wood anyway

I'm currently getting ready to go and see this lady at the Fox Theatre tonight:

Have a great night all!

I'm around

Last night for the first time in weeks, I took the night off from exercising. I was pretty darn sick, so I had a good excuse. I was all achey and feverish and could barely move my legs. They felt like lead! My house is in an uproar as I'm getting wood floors put in... just in the office and hallway. But hello! I walk the hallway several times a day. So it's been a little frustrating. When it's done it will be well worth it.

I'm feeling better today, but not perfect. I even went to work. Probably not a smart move for my co-workers, but oh well. It's not like I would have been able to get rest at home with all the banging going on. I've not been very good with food again. I've been saying that a lot. I don't know what's going on with me... and it's not like I'm going to fast food or eating three dinners, it's just that I've stopped tracking which has made it easier to say yes to foods I was saying no to before. My daughter and house guest will be heading out to a float trip for the weekend so I won't have to worry about feeding anyone else but myself this weekend. So I think I'll be able to find some order again... and time to get to a grocery store for my fresh fruit and vegetables. Next week, I will see a marked difference in my eating, because I have to lose this fat! There is some kick ass muscle underneath it and I want to be able to show it off! I am going to WW on Sat. I'm sure I won't enjoy the results, but I need to start over and this will be the perfect time to do just that!

I got the Job!!!

I'm so happy, I was offered the position this afternoon and I accepted. It's more money, more visibility, an I actually get to use my degree. So excited. I don't have a start date yet becasue my current manager has to release me first, but it's sometime in the next 30 days. Woo-hoo! AND I don't have to work tomorrow.

I'm here!

It's been a crazy horrible week so far. My food not nearly as good as it needs to be, my exercise has been awesome, major workouts every night this week... but that's about the only thing that has been awesome.
My sister's cats have been living with me for the last 10 months and on Tuesday morning Sarah, who was amost 16 years old died, in my house on my watch. So horrible. I cried, the kids, who found her, cried. My sister was damn near inconsolable.
Work has been crazy busy and it is driving me crazy. I also interviewed for a new position today, I think I did well but won't hear anything until sometime next week. I really hope this one works out because the job sounds like a lot of work but interesting and challenging which is what I want. So think good thoughts, okay?

I just have to get through tomorrow, and then I have a 3-day weekend, which I desperately need.
