I met my goal of 1000 exercise minutes for November! Very happy. Making cookies with family I'm going to think of SparkPeople before putting another one in my mouth! My new goal for December exercise minutes will be 1010. It is the month of December, busy time of year.

    Yes it is a very busy time of the year so it will be essential that we all look for ways to stay active and still get all the Christmas fun done.
I am looking at doing smaller time amounts of exercise but just more often. I am looking into trying the 10 minutes every hour plan for this month as see if I can maintain my weight thru December.
I love the new goal and hope you will post your progress as the month continues. emoticon

Oh Boy! Epic Fail!

I started the Thanksgiving day great. I had a really good workout. I did fine with the Thanksgiving meal itself. Had one plate. Lots of options are already eliminated because of me being vegetarian. But, the snacking. Itís the snacking that kills every time, and the cheese, I eat cheese, and lots of it. So then itís a lot of sitting around and letting the motivation get really low. Then to top it, I go shopping at midnight. Donít crawl into bed until 4:30.
The kids get up around 7. Head to a doctorís apt, do a bit more shopping. Eat leftovers. Motivation still low, go to bed early.
Saturday get up early, clean the house, take the girls to swim lessons, chill at a library, eat out. Come home and got sucked into a game, claim to my DH ďIím going to workout!Ē Take a nap instead. Look at mags, crack open a beer, and sit, order out. Donít go to bed until 2:30 in the morning!!
So Sunday comes and I basically slap myself out of this stupor. I end up doing an 85 minute workout. I eat good foods and do okay at dinner. Monday and Tuesday, did good on working out and eating. So I feel Iím back on track, but I am so tired. My eyes burn.
Anywho, Iím very excited about meeting my goal. I set a goal of 1000 exercise minutes for the month of November. I have 47 minutes left to go. I can do that! Iím going to meet a goal!!

Phooey. So last night was a bit hard. I wasn't feeling in the mood to be "good". We had chili which is a great dinner, we use boca meat and all the tomatoes, black beans, fresh peppers, added a carrot and onion and seasonings. So you can't really go wrong there. But little ol me, I add cheese and avocado, which avocado is ok. I did say no to sour cream. But, I had two biscuits with honey and butter, maybe half a sleeve of saltines. So here I am full, and I had to sneak, yes, I literally sneaked, in a piece of cheese, didn't wanted my DH to see me, I just couldn't say no. Then after all this is said and done, I have a snack sized bag of Spicy Doritos. It could have been worse. And bless my DH heart, I kept asking him to go get me a BIG bag of Spicy Doritos, he kept saying no. I can be a bit whiny when doing this, but he stuck to his guns. He said to go raid the rest of the snack packs of chips, but I thought, jeez, open all of those! Seemed a little much.
Still not feeling too motivated today. I did an hour of stationary biking this morning, yay for me. But tonight, DH will be out playing BBall, and I will be home with the three kids and a fridge. And it isn't a school night, soooooo, maybe some drinky drinks. Ugh! I'm not feeling very strong at the moment, and I know as soon as I get in the door, everything will just crash in on me. I don't handle stress very well. Feeling very vulnerable. And I'm not sure how to handle this. Advice? Anyone? Tonight will be tricky.


I'm Impressed

I didn't get around to make an entry yesterday. My weekend was good! my DH was out hunting so I had my 3 kids to myself. I cleaned, did the swim lessons got my oldest shoes, had a decent dinner. All day Saturday, good foods, I had one extra slice of pizza, I didn't think enough about it to stop eating it. But Ok. Sunday, we went to see Wreck-It Ralph (Good Movie!!) I got the kids popcorn, no butter. I had a couple of handfuls. I did make a dessert, and had my fair share, but I compensated fat dinner and had a nice filling salad. I really upped my exercising this weekend. 65 minutes of biking and a really intense cardio workout! Very happy. And yesterday, I did very well. Just walked at lunch, my hip flexors are sore from my Sunday workout.
Today, I already did my workout, I did a step routine. and I am a bit unsure of my foods for work. We are having chili today. I'm doing good!

So so so tired

Friday, November 16, 2012

Ugh! This cold. I don't remember a cold kicking my butt so hard! I wasn't able to get up this morning, couldn't fight my way out of the grogginess. I did do some yoga during lunch, 25 minutes. Put up a sweat. I'm very tired, and have a lot planned for tonight. We are having chinese takeout, veggies only for me. I do plan on having some beers. Snowdrift Vanilla Porter. Deeeeelish!
The weekend may be a bit tough. I'll be home alone with the kids most, if not all of it. I'm too tired to feel optimistic about a good weekend (good= exercising and eating right.)
