I Hate Monday

Today was one of those crazy days at work. You know the ones where it seems like if it could go wrong it did. My boss convinced me to go to Qdoba for the Monday breakfast special. But for lunch I did good and only had my salad. Then after work I was supposed to go grocery shopping, but I decided not to, way to stressful of a day I just wanted to go home and be with my family. So with stress comes lack of desire to cook. So it was a pizza kind of night. Thankfully my hubby is learning to like thin crust. I only had two pieces at dinner along with another salad. I think I only had two pieces because I was determined to chew EVERY bite thoroughly. By the time I got to the second piece I was just to lazy to go to all the work and eat another. I also felt satisfied. I did have a third piece later, but I truly was hungry, trust me it is a lot of work to chew pizza until it is nearly liquid. Well I am off to do my first workouts for both the squat and the push-up challenges.

Super Sunday

Wow it has been crazy around my house. Husband was gone for three nights straight for work. We thought he was only going away for one day. My boss got promoted and I took over her position. Lots of changes. Still that's no excuse, but weight loss took a back burner.

Now it is Sunday, and after a very lazy laid back Saturday, I was ready to hit the pavement. I went for a 2.5 mile run. It was very hard at the end, but I pushed through it. I thought about my friend on Blog to Lose who is having a really hard time with week 5 of the C25k. I know how hard that week is and I guess I thought if I pushed through to the end maybe somehow she would find the strength to do the same. Go Pam, I am cheering you on.

I made a crock pot oatmeal in the crock pot overnight so breakfast was ready for me when I woke up. I was not super impressed with the taste, but a little honey, applesauce and some peanut butter chips and it tasted great. I then had mesquite chicken (Sam's club) with a lot of broccoli for lunch. For dinner it was the same chicken with peas and crinkle fries ( cooked in the oven of course.) No salad because I am out and when I went to King Soopers last night they were sold out of just about every salad they carry. This happens quite often when I go late at night and it aggravates me. I should make someone go get me one from the back. I think I am going to grab an apple and head to bed now. I have to work the holiday tomorrow and it is getting late.

Another Monday

Things just didn't seem to fall into place today. My little girl woke up far too early, 2:30 am. Poor girl has a stuffy nose that keeps her from sleeping well. It was a good thing that I had gotten most of my lunch made the night before as she was very clingy. Then after breakfast it seems the stomach bug I had on Friday and Saturday decided it want to return for another visit. I was cautious with my morning snack, but felt a little better by lunch and was able to eat all of my lunch with the exception of my hard boiled egg. I did not want to risk it. For dinner we had a delicious chicken with peppers and pineapple that I got the idea for from here. It was raining after work so instead of going for a run I went home and did all the prep work for dinner and so housework so that I would have no excuses for not going to the gym once the hubby got home. Well when he did get home I managed to stub my toe on his steel toed work boots right on the pinkie toe. I hurt so bad I thought it would be totally black and blue today. It is not but it is still very painful. So I guess I will count yesterday as my rest day and move on. I hope my toe feels better by this afternoon so I can get in some for of exercise.
