Get some sleep

Finally can post

Blogger was giving me endless log-in loop.  Cleared cash and updated Chrome, hopefully good to go.
Monday, I am re-starting the clean eating and exercise. Hopefully the water in my basement will have stopped by then and I can use the treadmill.  If not I will use the biggest loser for the xbox.  Still haven't gotten the Wii hooked up, now can't find the sensor thing.
Sometime I think life throws things at me just to see if I will give up.  Goal is 2-5lbs next week.  Fingers crossed.

Still Fighting my Inner Demons of Laziness

Stressed out, I think that is what I am.  Can't seem to focus on anything. I hope that this will pass once DH gets at least one or two pay cheques in the bank, and we are not cutting it so close.  I ate a whole freaking blueberry pie last night. Talk about emotional eating.  I knew I should have not bought the pie, but I lied to myself saying I would cut it into pieces and use it for treats HA.  
I must say I did get in the recommend amount of water yesterday, now I feel rather bloated (I am sure the pie might have something to do with this as well). SO
Today is a new day
Stick to the meal plan
Some form of exercise, before starting the invitations and a birthday card tonight.

Wish me luck

May 16

Well guess I didn't post the last 6 days.  I really didn't make progress either.
Hubby is leaving for Fort McMurry tonight, so I will hopefully get a menu and exercise plan together.  The dog is on new medication so he might be up for after work walks again.  I have to get the wedding invitations done, that is stressing me out. Then I crave sugar. Let you know what the menu and exercise plan is a little later this week.

oops, didn't post on Saturday

well, still no exercise, slept in and then worked on the wedding invitations.  I had to make a trip to the scrapbook store. then I cut and scored cards all night

Tuesday: things went a little haywire on the weekend, along with an emergency vet visit for MacLeod.  He fell off the bed and injured his front right leg.  He is on pain killers at the moment and I am hoping recovering.  His enzymes were a bit elevated and at his age that can mean many things, so no anti inflammatory meds.  Then for Mother's Day supper, my Mom, sister, her son, my son and her son's inlaws went for dinner at Swiss Chalet.
Monday I was able to walk at lunch and then print off more pieces of the wedding invitations.  I had a card class in the evening.
Just got back from a short walk at lunch. Will do a drop in tag class after work, then head home to get more pieces of the wedding invitations done.  Time is running out Yikes!  Planning to get to longer walks as the weather stays nice. If I can start sleeping better, I might try to get up earlier and do a work out before heading off to work.
Thanks for the comments on my post, they really do help

Day 2

Again no exercise, but did eat much better.  Hubby is going out of town for a couple of days.  Tonight I have no excuse not to get in some exercises.  I did mention I AM LAZY.  I WILL do this!
I wonder why it is so hard to motivate myself for exercise, I feel so good after I get into a routine.  I liked it so much better when the treadmill was up stair, not down in the dark damp basement.  At least then I would get on it to walk while watching TV. I can still do that only have to do it down stairs.

Today I will not put off what I can do today til tomorrow (that means exercise)

Still working on the menu, it is getting there. Does anyone want me to post the menu?

Day 1

Well, I didn't get the exercise in, kind of angry at myself for that, but today is another day.  Well I shouldn't say no exercise, I did go for a 15 minute walk at lunch.

Did not track my food, this has always been trouble for me as since I cook it or hubby cooks it, I then have to enter a recipe and calculate calories.
Pretty sure the 2 cinnamon buns wasn't in the meal plan. Fail to plan plan to fail...............

This morning weighed myself, well that was a shocker 143lb ack!!!!!!  Today will be a better day!  Have my clean eating magazines here at work, going to make a 14 day meal plan. Take stock of the groceries at home tonight. Get some prep work and cooking done on the weekend, after getting the wedding invitations preped as well.
Goals for today
get in 30 minutes of exercise
eat 3 well balance meals

New Chapter

I am starting this blog for myself, but feel free to follow me and send me encouragement.
I am almost 51 and starting to feel my age. Actually older than I am. I have for a number of years trying but not really trying to get fit and eat healthier. Today I am going to start over again.  I thought maybe if I try to blog about it daily it would help. Here is the To Do List

Eat Clean -  The Eat Clean Diet

Work out daily use either The Biggest Loser for Xbox or something else for the Wii ( if I can get it set up)
  I also own dozens of dvd, so I have no excuse

Track my food with a food journal.  I will likely use the one at Sparkpeople.com, unless I can figure something else out to help with the making of my own meals with the clean eating guidelines.

I own apps, DVD and "games" I have no excuse, except I am lazy, organizational challenged and get depressed easily.

If you happen on this blog PLEASE let me a comment of encouragement, tell me your story, join me and let's make this happen.  I have a deadline for losing about 15lbs, but the real goal is to be healthy for the rest of my life.
