Damn Santa Man & Cheese Nips

These were my guilty pleasures last night.  I got off work at 2:30 then went straight to the cracker aisle and grabbed these little crispy cheese devils. I've been craving them for a few days now. Then as I was leaving I passed the marshmallow santas and said "what the hell"

The box in the picture is about 3/4's empty, my daughter had a little but the rest is all me. There is 11 servings in that box...

And those damn santas....ate all but two of them too. ( 4 total)

This was a total pre-planned binge. Whether I knew it or not, I didn't pass up the thought of  " I don't need these" instead I went against all my instincts and acted on it.

This is odd behavior for me. I'm not beating myself up about it, I'm just going to move on. But the WHY I did this is the mystery this morning?  Why?

Well, I was tired after dealing with a very overwhelming & busy day  (no excuse) I was grouchy because I had to do laundry/clean up when I got home after dealing with a busy day (no excuse) I was too tired to get in a workout after work and felt bad about it ( no excuse)
  I know women who deal with a busy day at work and still manage to eat healthy and workout almost every day. These women are my inspirations today.  Because I know if they can do it then why can't I?

My husband and I had a good laugh this morning because when he came home from work and saw the almost empty cheese nip box & little santa wrappers he asked 'why in the heck did you buy cheese nips and marshmallow santas?" 

He knows me so well....

Wednesday, December 7th 2011

Yesterday was a good day at work. I was trained on baking, the only thing I didn't know how to do. And boy...its not hard at all. As a matter of fact, everything in the bakery is pretty self explanatory. :)

My manager is so nice, yesterday she told me that she knew I was going to be good at both baking and being her assistant. Its such a nice feeling to have your manager have so much faith in you. I think it helps that I am completely honest with her at all times. If I have any doubts about anything I go to her.

Yesterdays attempt at eating healthy went pretty good, not great because I did eat a few sweets but I managed to avoid any fried foods :) I think that will be my goal until the first of the year, no fried foods and one sweet a day. No mindless eating.

Update: Cathe's Athletic Step done this morning. Im proud of myself for getting it in. Thats a 40 min high intensity cardio done :)

Losing Followers

For whatever reason, I've lost another follower.

Now, when I started this blog I told myself it was for me and not a popularity contest. Afterall, I don't come on here 'trying' to get the attention of others. This is my personal thoughts. It's a great release!  Lately, its been a pure pleasure to unload all my thoughts for the morning, before I start my day.

I do admit though, every time I lose a follower the "Negative Nancy" in me comes out and says that my blog wasn't good enough for them.  That my blog is boring and I wonder why they left? yada,yada,yada....

But I have to think of it like this: Their journey with me is over and perhaps I helped them in some sort of way :)

On Today's Agenda:
Work ( yawn) working out (If I have too)  and since I bombed on yesterdays attempt to keep my focus on eating ( Chinese food for lunch isn't exactly 'diet friendly',lol)  I will focus on eating healthy today and drinking water.

Have an awesome day :)

Back On Track.

My weight was surprisingly good this morning,169.4. I say surprising because of my eating the past few days;HOR-RI-BLE!

But guess what? Today is a fresh new day and it will be better :)

The past two days I have managed to get in 30min walks on the treadmill. For some reason I couldn't bring myself to do a high intensity workout like one of Cathe's. But today I will make myself do something that will require me to sweat. I'm so wishy/washy on logging my food that I've decided to take a more simple approach. No logging calories anymore. Just eating my meals an if I'm hungry in-between meals, I will eat  fruit/yogurt/clean snacks.

So for the past two days I've felt pretty good. The medication that my doc has me on seems to be kicking in more. I feel more like myself and im excited about it. No more panicky feelings and my mind seems to be calmer. I can't wait for the medicine to be in its full effect ( 2weeks, today is day #9) My doc is suppose to increase the dosage soon too.

Hope everyone has a great day :)

Update: 30minute HiiT + 30mins of strength training done.  The Hiit was Turbo Jams fat blaster workout then I did the weight work from the first 5 drills in Cathe's Drillmax. :)
