I chose sleep this morning over exercise. I know what my problem is its the change of sunrise. It's now dark out when my alarm is going off and I feel as though I should still be asleep. I'm just going to have to force it. I did work my ass off today after work and got in my fitbit goals so that's something. I also allowed myself some peach cobbler my mom made. I've been really good about my food and I've learned that depriving myself of things makes me fall off the wagon hard. So all I'm…Continue
I've been a bit of a slacker this week. My calories are matching my activity level though so I'm not really worried. Sunday my steps were over my goal and I met all my goals for the day Monday o was about 2500 steps off, yesterday I was almost 4000 steps below. I got really distracted reading. Today I wanted to start book 7 in the series I'm reading but I told myself I could only start it if I finished my steps. I worked my ads off while at work to get all 10000 in. I left just enough to be…Continue
I promise to not flood you with pregnancy updates because that is not what this place is about, but its kinda what is going on with me right now, so there will be some. The other day I mentioned that I'm at that awkward in between stage where I don't really look pregnant, but more like I just had one too many cheeseburgers.…Continue
When I started about 3 years ago I was tracking my food on livestrong.com and committed to eat healthy and move more. Simple right? It worked!
I wrote up my experience for livestrong.com and got picked for a feature. They even sent a professional photographer to shoot 100's of pictures of me. That was fun.
Just got the link for my story:…Continue
I think we (or at least I) focus so much on losing weight that we forget that there are LOTS of reasons to eat healthy and take care of ourselves. Eating a healthy diet also helps us to just look good. This article from Sparkpeople reminded me of this and has these suggestions:
Drink plenty of water
Sip green tea daily
Avoid simple carbs
Nourish your skin with healthy foods
I biked this morning I was a little slower this morning than normal which is fine. Still got my 6 miles in. And I was a little lazy this week with my steps so I decided to make up for it today, kind of as a way to punish myself so I stayed on track next week. So my goal today was about 15500 steps. I walked 3 miles this morning after biking but then I went shopping to get in the rest lol. I have actually hit over 17000 steps for the day which is great but my knees aren't thrilled. Not huge…Continue
We had our first cold snap this weekend and I love the crisp cooler air (remind me of this in the dead of winter when I am whining). Since my belly is expanding and my pants are getting tighter, I took the opportunity to clean out the closet of things to donate and things that are not currently fitting. I can't stand having to dig through a ton of clothes that don't fit to find something that does, so I box away the regular clothes and put the maternity clothes in where they are easy to…Continue
When I was at the gym this morning I started thinking about what goals I want to set for myself for October. Then I realized that I was falling victim to that whole "I'll start tomorrow" syndrome. I can't believe after all of these years I would mindlessly throw away the 19 days left in September. I can make some serious progress between now and then. What the heck was I thinking???
So here are the goals for September:
(1) Quit the juice (Coca Cola) for…Continue
I set my alarm to run this morning but I opted to sleep more instead. I struggled half the day to get in steps but I did make up the four floors I missed yesterday. I finally for the first time utilized the treadmill in our office. I was getting grumpy and was tired of paperwork so I walked for 5 min I'm glad I did. On the way home I got ansy and decided that running after work I the heat would be a good plan. Well it wasn't lol, it was a very long mile run then I walked another mile and a…Continue
