  3. No posting in a while, end if the week was busy, productive in lots of areas…not so much in the food and activity arena. A good week overall though.

    This morning was a long overdue session with the trainer. We’re starting the next phase, a hybrid of 1, 2, & 3 ?lol, I’m lost on the phases, but it’s focusing on strength / endurance. I did a hack squat for the first time…WOW! The session was great, I hurt, which is really good. Looking forward to this phase.

    The next part of the day, the biggest part of it was spent working on our van. Replaced both rear breakers and calipers. It was ridiculously hot outside though. The pavement was burning my legs and the tools were too hot to touch at times. Thankful for my stepdad, otherwise it would have never happened. I think no eating breakfast before the gym, then going straight into car repair still with no eating, all in 100+ temps may have been overdoing it. Felt rough the rest of the day.

    Spent the afternoon and now evening starting Orange is the New Black, which I am now addicted to lol.

    We did get back out for a bit and go get dinner. Tried something new, it was great, except too much olive oil.

    Going to try and go to the gym as much as possible, and minimize the extra eating. I’m focusing on the blessings, not the worries. God is good , and we’re going to make it through the trials and tribulations. They’re not obstacles to fail, but opportunities to shine.


    Ohhh and I lost this week too ;)

     
  4. So…this post dinner, night time snacking, STUPID eating….struck again Saturday & Sunday. It’s as though I couldn’t get full… So yea…71 points letter(close to 20 Powerade & Minute Made Just 15 Calories Juice), I started today anew.

    Today was a good day eating, a hard one, but a good one. A smaller breakfast and lunch allowed for evening craziness. Made better choices too, and hit my daily targets as well ;) except for dairy possibly, I have been struggling with that one for awhile now.

    The good news, or GREAT news rather is that despite a TON of stress I didn’t go off the reservation ;) Flush for the day in points and 25 points earned!

    Stress…ugh…doesn’t ever really go away. No matter how hard you try…stress is gonna come. It’s all about perception, attitude, and overall management.

    I’m just going to try and keep my glass half, count my blessing instead of troubles, and #beastmode at the gym.

  6. Whoohoo

     
  7. + 4.6lbs gain for the week. Between post vacation catchup, eating out for like umpteen days in a row; I’m ok with accepting this. No freaking out or pity party, actually glad the results are in and over with.

    I’m taking things glass half full today, sometimes the the bigger the gain, the more there’s too loose ;) ok so maybe that doesn’t exactly make sense, but hopefully the spirit of it does.

    Trainer text this morning, family emergency so no session. So my AM workout became my Mom’s yard with my sister. Overcast, cool, but extra humid. It was a good workout. I may never wear those shoes again though…I don’t think the dog poop has been picked up since they moved here several years ago lol. 3 1/2 miles, 75 minutes and I pushed, didn’t use the power part. Kinda was like pushing a sled the whole time, grass was high and wet.
