I'm feeling much better today, thank goodness. I guess my allergies really weren't after all. By Friday, I was done for. After a restful day and some decent sleep (finally!!), I was feeling better. I'm just glad that being sick didn't affect either my class or clinical.
It sucks that I wasn't able to work out last week, but I was still tracking my steps so that helped keep me in a good frame of mind since I was missing working out. Although Friday I barely walked, I made up for it yesterday by finally tracking 10,000 steps. This was a great accomplishment for me.
I took my daughter school shopping today. We had a great time and she got some great stuff too. At one of the stores we went to, if you tried on jeans you got a $10 off $25 coupon. So I tried on jeans too. I had them bring me a size 14 and they were TOO BIG!!! I was so excited!! I didn't buy any because I don't need any new pants right now, I just really wanted the coupon!! But it was a great feeling. While I was waiting for her to try on clothes, I caught a glimpse of my legs and saw that I have some nice hamstring muscles forming. I was shocked. I guess the running is doing good things for me.
Now that the kids are going back to school, I'm hoping to figure out my working out schedule to coincide with my school/study schedule. I will still be very busy, but I know I can squeeze in the time to do it.
Here are my goals for the week:
1. Exercise at least 90 min. (I know the total is down, but I'm still a little congested)
2. Eat within my normal calorie range
3. Figure out my weekly workout schedule
4. Study for my first test, Ugh!!
Do any of you have goals that you would like to share?
Thanks for reading, I hope you all have a great holiday and a great week!!

Yay, the scale is still moving in the right direction!! I lost 2 lbs this week!! I'm so happy about this. Definitely a good start to the day.
This week is still busy with me going back to school and clinical. The kids don't go back til next week and I've been busy running them around to different appointments and practice. Today is the first day that I'm at home for more than an hour at a time. I've even managed to throw some pepper steak in the crock pot, dinner done!!
My allergies have been kicking my butt this week too. I'm miserable mostly because of the headache that I have. I haven't been able to work out because I can't breathe!! I'm focusing on my nutrition to help out. I'm hoping to work out by the weekend.
I am noticing that I have really gotten a lot better about my portion sizes, which seems to be helping. Except for the fresh tomatoes that my neighbor brought over, I'm eating the grape tomatoes like candy!! I know that's not a bad thing, I love them!!
I'm taking my son school shopping later. I've been so busy, and he still isn't able to walk for a really long time, but each day he's getting better. I will take my daughter shopping over the weekend, she finally has some time off from practice!! I refuse to take both of them together, it gets really bad. Besides it give me a chance to spend time with each of them separately.
I hope you are all having a great day and are looking forward to the holiday weekend.
Thanks for reading

I had to do some clothes shopping tonight because I needed clothes for my clinical rotation for school. I'm doing my psych rotation first and we are not allowed to wear our scrubs, we have to wear "business casual" clothes. First of all I'm a jeans and t-shirt kind of girl, and don't bother me with dress shoes. I don't get dressed up all that often. I was fortunate enough to find two pair of dress pants in my closet that fit me, yay! I also tried on a pair of 9/10 pants from my closet, they buttoned, but weren't comfortable, but at least they buttoned!
When I went shopping, I found myself not even attempting to reach for a size XL. I'm glad I didn't because the size L shirts fit me. I found two shirts and a pair of shoes. I'll go back in a few weeks when it starts to get cooler and hopefully find some long sleeve stuff too, I'm always cold.
I'm excited about this little victory. It made me feel good to be able to fit into a smaller size.
Thanks for reading and I hope you are having a great day!! Happy Friday
