So, how did I do? I got, what, two posts into the 30 posts in 30 days thing? I started out with good intentions; I really did. As usual, life and laziness got in the way.
I am making myself post tonight, though, because I need to get myself back on track before I get to out-of-control. And by “out-of-control” I mean coming home from work, sitting on the couch and watching 2 hours of television while eating supper chased with some Doritos. Not good.
Life has been extra busy lately. I started a new job today, but I’m still doing my old job too, at least until they hire a replacement. I’ve been working on a couple of projects and also trying to update all of my notes/standard work instructions and trying to train my 2 coworkers in a few weeks what has taken me 3 years to learn thoroughly. We’ll get there; it’ll just be a busy October.
And when I’m busy at work, I tend to let other parts of life slide. I don’t exercise as much. I eat worse food and more of it, and I watch more TV. I feel as if I’ve “earned” it, even though “earning” a tasty, unhealthy meal won’t lessen its bad effects on the body at all.
I need to get back to where I was last winter, before our Spring break trip – working out 3-5 days per week, doing yoga every Saturday, and eating healthy food in proper portions. I felt so much better, I had more energy, and my skin was so much better. I actually had some ab definition!
So, tomorrow morning I am going to get up and go to the gym. Unlike today, I’m not going to eat 2 cups (was it really 2 cups? eesh) of Tim’s delicious home-made mac & cheese for lunch. Perhaps I’ll have a PB&J on whole wheat bread with a Honeycrisp. Whatever I do, I need to get back on the healthy wagon.
I absolutely have to exercise Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday this week. Thursday afternoon Mom and I are flying out to NYC to visit my bros. That is about 10 delicious meals that I need to prepare my body for with some preemptive exercise.
So, I better head to my tea and my bed, so I can get to sleep and get up at 4:30AM. Good luck to everyone else out there who is trying to maintain a healthy life style. Laura – I saw you’re doing Zumba tonight. I hope you had fun. You’re looking great!
