I am a stay at home mom that has a new obsession weekly. My daughter was born end of 2009. On top of everything else in life I would also love to get in shape and try to be a runner. Try is the keyword!
I am starting couch to 5K tonight. I will give a recap tomorrow from work when I am bored out of my mind. But really I am going to stick to this for the next few weeks. I need to get back in shape and loose weight. Exercise I know is the best way. Everything I have issues with sleep, mood, anxiety, stress and body image will all get a little extra boost in a good way if I work out. So here I go.....
Yes that is the treadmill you see in the back ground folded up. But I just needed my Cold stone. LOL
My high school 10 year reunion is tonight. And well I am not there. I feel sorta bad for not going but really I see the peeps I still care about and who I want to see. There are some people I do not care for seeing. The random run ins where you know you are both acting like you don't see the other person will not work tonight. Also I'm not drinking right now so how will my nerves every get calm enough to talk to people I don't really care how great their life is. Tonight I will be at home chilling with the hubs and baby. So MTHS class of 2000 happy 10 years! I promise I will see you at the 20.
Today is June 22 why is it all nasty out still? It is just depressing. I want that warm feeling on my skin when I walk outside. I want to smell summer. I want to take M for a walk and not worry getting rained on. Will we see Summer this year? Sun please come out and play for a bit. We need it!
I went all day without complaining well kinda. The girl that sits next to me at work also joined the fun with me. We both watched each other and helped how to express the way we were feeling with out being negative. Now if eye rolling was not allowed we would have both done horrid but overall I think I did great. At the end of the work day I had only said 3 negative complaining things. That is GREAT for me. I'm going to try and keep this up. I feel better about the day overall not looking at one negative after another.
I am reading a book right now. No need to mention the name it is horrible but I am finishing it to see if there is any point. LOL The chapter I read last night was about how she was trying to go 3 weeks with no complaining at all. ZERO NONE Then she went on about how she could never find a time to start because she either had therapy, or was going to meet up with friends that day. She knew they were all going to complain and how do you go to therapy without complaining.
Starting today at 9am (1 min ago) I am trying this. I am going to see how long I can go with no complaints. I am going to try and look at everything positive and not wine. I feel like I am always saying that I need more sleep, or don't feel good. So here is the new and positive me.
~Family pictures were fun. I'm still deciding if I want to post them on here or not. Have a great day and stay positive!
I bought a new pretty coffee pot over the weekend. It is one that uses the K cups. LOVE IT! I figure this way I will be saving money (over the long run) and also can control how much caffeine I am really having.
We did family pictures yesterday. We shall see how they turn out. It was very nice and sunny out but way to cold to be down by the water. Poor M was freezing and add teething with that and you get a cranky baby. I felt horrible for her. But I think we got a few good shots.
That's all for today :) I have real work to-do today. Not sure how that happen. I have the most pointless job of all time. But it pays the bills. Later!
I did it! I didn't even really miss it that much. We shall see what tomorrow brings. I also ate pretty good today. Minus the cupcake I ate at 5 when the hubs when to work. OMG it tasted amazing. I noticed that food tasted way better today when I didn't eat ALLDAYLONG. I'm going to try and go all week with no coffee. I did have some tea today for a little caffeine kick. Have a good week!
I feel like I am always negative. But trying to be positive. This is what I am Thankful for (no it's not Thanksgiving)
A healthy baby girl that looks at me and smiles or giggles when I come into the room
A husband that helps when I am feeling down
EBay (my new lover)
Friends who are there and ready to listen or kick back and laugh
Coffee (WORK IN PROGRESS)
Shopping (because it is the only thing I know that helps with my stress and worries)
This weekend we have big plans!! Saturday dinner with friends and shopping. Sunday we are planning on walking for breast cancer in the morning (ankle please do not kill me), then family pictures. I am praying it stays nice out. Please rain stay away.
M had her 6 month check up yesterday. She screamed bloody murder when the dr looked in her ears. I felt like a horrible mom. Then 5 mins later she got 3 shots in her thigh and was screaming again. The nurse was surprised how loud and high pitch she can get. She s growing great!!!! she weights 16.5 lbs and 26 inches long. For weight she is in 58% and length 78% long baby! Last night she took a nap with me around 5 then got up for a bottle at 9 and back to bed until 3 this AM. Sleepy girl she growing allot right now I think.
We got the go ahead to start with solids and a sippy cup. I had no clue she can start using a sipppy cup! So what do I do I order like 10 of them online and bought her one last night. She wasn't that big of a fan of it but I think it will take time.
My diet is starting...... Here are my goals for week 1
Cut back on coffee. 1/2 if I do have it
get at least 4 days of cardio in
drink WAY more water
Watch what I eat and portions
I weight the most I have ever weighted in my life. DEPRESSING We are doing family pictures on Sunday and I am dreading it. Well here it goes. Wednesday will be my check in days. (Shot out to Jen I think you are my only reader)
Being nice. I feel like I go out of my way to make people happy. Then what do I get in return? Crabby, mean, ripoff take advantage of me people. I do not believe in Karma. I am over Karma. Karma is over rated big time. I do many nice things for people and I get nothing really in return. Yes I do win a few times on a slot machine or in a drawing. But come on people please play nice.
I am big into coupon swapping right now. Pretty much to sum it up. You need a coupon I have, I send it to you and in return you send me a coupon I need. It is petty if you do not send the coupon in return or even better yet make the coupon sound better then it is. Do you really have no time but to rip people off. Yes I know I am complaining about $1 or so but it drives me nuts. I just cannot believe how someone can rip people off and just brush it off like no big deal. Its flat out RUDE and I'm over it. K
