Today was a bit rough. I feel like I'm running on fumes. Guess it could be getting up at 3:30 am to go to work and not getting into bed until after 9 pm. That's gotta change. I usually take a nap in the afternoon but with my wonderful children being home, I really haven't had a chance for any peace and quiet. They go back to school tomorrow. Yeah, I'm going to miss them but I'm glad I get some peace back.
I decided to go outside today to get my workout in. It was 50 degrees out and I wanted to take advantage of the weather while I could. Shockingly, my husband wanted to go to! So I picked him and the kids up and we drove over to the community center. We walked the outside track while the kids walked in front of us, each with their owm mp3 player on singing at the top of their lungs. I couldn't help but laugh. They made it one lap (which equals a mile) before they decided they wanted to play on the playground. My hubby stayed with them and I walked another lap. Um, that might have been a mistake. I wear my shape-ups when I walk and today was no different. The track isn't flat either. There are several hills. I'm definitely out of shape. I'm completely disappointed in this new realization. No sugar coating it there. I was at a point of running again after all the stupid knee surgeries I've had and to have it hurt and throb after walking is not pleasant. Guess I'm going to have to step it back up and make myself go to the gym.
I'm not having trouble with eating. Im doing great with that. I've found several recipes I want to try. I even picked up some flounder, now if only I can figure out a good recipe to cook it. I am definitely liking the fact that I can have fruits and vegetables whenever I want. I'm not really craving any of the junk food that I did before. We ate at a fast food restaurant the other day and I took a tiny bit of my favorite burger and it wasn't even really appealing. Hmmm.... Could my taste buds really be changing that quick? Maybe something in me just clicked this year. I don't want to be this weight any more. I'm done with it. I have found some good cookie reciepes that have curbed my sweet cravings and the fresh fruit has really helped. I think this could be a permanent change.... I'm crossing my fingers!
Now just on to a better routine..... And more sleep!!
