First, there is a new face :)
Thank you Sandra for joining me in My Day!!!
I feel like I should put a disclaimer haha :) Right now I feel great, and am back on track for the most part... but it's not always that way. My life isn't all sunshine and rainbows and sometimes my writing reflects that...
but we all have those days right???
I think writing the next morning instead of at night, has really helped me with that though. Take this weekend. If I were to have written Saturday night, it would NOT have been pretty. Let's just say my Mom called, it seems, for no other reason than to make an already stressed out day even worse. THAT would have been a long, pissed off, rambling post- believe that!
BUT she ended up coming over Sunday, and I just let it go and all is well.
Not writing at night gives me a chance to cool down, look at the situations and realize it isn't that big of deal. It could always be worse!
I guess I'm going to just sum up the weekend. I have all the food written down (which is an everyday thing now) but we'll just do the short version... just skim the ugly details!!!
It wasn't great.
Friday we ordered pizza, GOOD pizza. I have been doing so well with the fast food- so I didn't feel TO bad, but I should have eaten less. FOR SURE. I ended up with 3 pieces, and they were large...
COOKIES all weekend. They were the best cookies I have ever had, but I actually did ok :) 3 Saturday, 3 Sunday, and a bite of cookie dough Friday... Now the last of them is in a container and will be gone today.
CHIPS! I usually don't even eat potato chips! But we had my brother JJ over and his friend (might as well be my 4th little brother :)) for wraps Saturday. I got some chips at the store, 3 kinds... why? I have no idea. Anyway, I grabbed the bag of BBQ chips and snacked on them Saturday AND Sunday night!!!! RIGHT OUT OF THE BAG. That is NOT a good habit to pick back up. NO MORE of that!!!!!!
I Did get in a lot of water though, and portions were fine except for the pizza!
Been weighing in everyday, and the chips and pizza did show up... But I still feel great. I feel motivated and ready to go, like I did in January when I started!
And I did some treadmill
Friday: 20 minutes/ .76 mile, Incline 1
Saturday: 26 minutes/ 1.03 mile, Incline 1, with 2 LB weights for 5 minutes
Total days in a row was 8
I didn't do it yesterday. I wasn't feeling really good (BBQ chips?) but I really could have. I was more lazy and sluggish than anything else. BUT I've decided to stop counting again. I will be fine if I miss one day a week on the treadmill. My goal is still to do it everyday, but I won't beat myself up over 1 missed day. 6 days a week is still good :) Especially if I step it up a bit!
So that's my weekend.
Step dad worked on the car all week and weekend, and no change. It still doesn't start. I'm only out $40 for that, and whatever I give him for the effort... I guess? The next step is Ray's mom is having it towed across town to her guy. She said she will pay for it... but I heard Ray on the phone yesterday saying he gets paid Friday... so I think we will probably be paying for it. (Which is fine... we were going to pay her back anyway, but were going to wait till income tax time since she offered to pay for it.)
All this wouldn't be so bad if I didn't just spend hundreds on the damn thing!!! And I only had it for a week afterwards and now there is a whole new problem!!!! I'm just hoping her guy can fix it.
The internet seems fine, so that's good! Especially with my growing addiction to FrontierVille!!! (Grrr!!! Thanks a lot Byron!!! lol) I have decided I'm going to have to limit myself. Like right now, I have to be off this computer by 10:00am so I can get housework and things done. Off at 10, no matter what! After housework, if I have time I'm sure I'll be back on lol. But I also am getting on the treadmill at 1pm during my soap, no matter what! lol. We'll see how my plan goes :) I really need to keep up the house better, so I'm going to really try and stick to the plan, everyday would be good :)
Going to be another beautiful day, about 73. I hope you have a great day too!!!!
