Pretty Sure....

Tuesday, October 21, 2014

I am pretty sure I have lost my ever loving mind.

I know I haven't been around but will update (most likely with a video) tomorrow (Wednesday)

Take care and love yourself,

    Awesome job. Funny, because this morning I spent two hours dancing with my kids in the kitchen in a makeshift dance party. Apparently the universe was suggesting congratulating you in dance worldwide (or at least, to PA)

Fall goal completed!

Wednesday, October 01, 2014

My goal was to be able to ride my bike to work, work my shift, and then be able to ride home.
I had to have this done before winter set in, here in northern Illinois, it is getting cold and when the snow comes, bike riding will be all but impossible.

I am happy to say that I was able to complete my goal yesterday!

When I woke up (still crabby from the yucky Monday that I had), my first thought was that it would be so easy to put off another day....then I got my behind up and out of bed.

I had planned out a route to work mostly along a bike trail, and wasn't quite sure how much it would change my mileage. The usual way that I take home when I bring my bike on the bus is 8.5 miles...this turned out to be 9.4 miles and I made it in just over an hour.

I was so excited that I was a third of the way through my goal!
As I worked my shift, I kept reminding myself to keep moving so I didn't get stiff and sore. As the day wore on, I was starting to feel a bit worn down, but made sure I drank lots of water and ate a good lunch....I also indulged in an espresso energy gel, lol!

On the way home, I took a different route for part of the way just because of traffic. I could tell I was going a bit slower, but nothing hurt really, just felt kinda sluggish and ran out of energy quicker on the hills, but oddly, I was able to slowly pedal up hills that I had to push the bike up previously.
The route that I took home was longer 11.1 miles....

Not only did I meet my goal, 20 miles is the furthest that I have ridden in one day!

I think my next goal will be to see if I can ride that much all at once! Of course...today is a resting day, while I don't feel as bad as I was afraid of....I am fatigued all over today.

Oh and a P.S.....
My tracker says that I have now hit 1000 lifetime miles!
Woot! Go me!

    Well, well!! My hats off to you because I tried biking a little and the first hill I hit I turned back around and got in my truck. Good for you!! That is a HUGE goal! And what a feeling of sweet, personal success. That's the best of all...how we feel about ourselves because of what we accomplished when we thought it was such a far off dream. I'm so happy for you and very proud of you for reaching your goal!

Tomorrow is IT! (asthma permitting)

Monday, September 29, 2014

Today will be a do-over tomorrow!
To start off...I forgot to put on my pedometer this morning....for the first time since I got it in March, today was a very slow day at work so I know I didn't get many steps in.
I had an asthma attack at work and my inhaler was making me queasy (figured out that one was expired)

To top it all off....I had something decent to eat in the fridge at work left over from yesterday.....I could feel my blood sugar dropping while I was waiting for my sister to pick me up after work and checked the fridge....yep. My bag was gone. Either someone picked it up by accident or it was tossed in the trash. I usually have a lunchbox but yesterday I just tossed everything into a shopping bag.
The thing of it is that if it was tossed in the trash, its not like someone cleaned out the fridge, lol!

I got hit with a giant craving for cheese fries...but did I stop there? Nope. I ate a patty melt as well.

I am feeling like a stuffed sausage and am feeling bad both because I ate food that makes me feel bad, and the fact that I let it get out of control.

Had another asthma attack this evening and wasn't able to get out for a walk to start pushing that junk through my system so I decided I have had enough.

I have already told my sister that I do not want a ride to/from work, checked the weather, and all I have left to do is to get some nutritious items packed and to make sure I have enough to fuel myself after work. (Something I often forget about)

TOMORROW IS THE DAY (asthma permitting...I hate to put a stipulation on it, but being able to breathe is preferred!)

I am completing my goal, I am riding my bike to work, working my shift and then riding all the way home.

    I would be so tempted to make something that looks yummy like cookies, but really tastes aweful to teach people a lesson....or at the very least make them wary of taking my stuff cuz it might not taste very good. emoticon

    Oh man! I hate asthma attacks! We have a problem at work where people take others lunches on purpose, it's maddening. I'm proud of you for not giving up and trying again tomorrow. Life isn't over so neither should be our attempts.

Hang in there!!

    Yep, I just put a fresh inhaler in the pocket Saturday (just in case). Take care of yourself!

Food Network Junkie!

Sunday, September 28, 2014

How do you know you are a Food Network junkie?
When a local Food Network Star comes into your work and you totally lose your sh*t!
Not only did I freak the hell out, I went fan-girl-stupid while talking to him and spent the rest of the day on an endorphin high!

Jeff Mauro was completely the awesomest guy ever! VERY nice and willing to look past my dorky-ness and chat with me for a minute!
He has a wonderful laugh and his wife and family were all very sweet too!
