What a novel idea!

I know I haven't been posting this week, I've had a hectic week at work. I started in a new dept and I'm also working longer days in order to bank time to have every other friday off! Anyways, this week has sucked my food and excercise has sucked. I hurt my neck and it's been sore all week! I'm going to a sports massage therapy appt tomorrow and hopefully that will do the trick! I've also got hikes planned with the bf for the weekend, so that will be good!

This lady at work, she took over my desk and has lost 50lbs, she told me she limited her cals to 1,400 - 1,600 a day and only walks for 20mins per day. First off I'm thinking 20 mins per day of WALKING?? I do that just to and from my car on any given day going to work and that many calories? And she's lost that much??

So I started thinking about my progress, how I haven't had any really... I am too one side of the "scale" or the other. So my new thing is going to be just ATLEAST 20 mins of excercise / per day (prob be more) and eat 1,400 cals during the week and 1,600 on weekends, which is totally reasonable!

My beck thing hasn't been great, I'm going to re-read it this weekend and really get FOCUSED. I'm also planning out all my meals for next week and sunday and not going to stray. It's going to be very "eat clean". I've had some stomach issues as of late and I think it might be due to processed foods!

Will post again soon ,

Monday Mornings!

Monday mornings ughhhh haha. I feel sooo tired today! I feel like I didn't sleep at all, I was half awake for what felt like most of the night. I started a new job today (new department within the same company) and I was anxious, plus I don't sleep as well when bf is here, I know that's terrible to say but we've been in a long distance relationship and I'm not used to him being in the bed! We're moving in together, which I'm so ecstatic about in a month and I'm looking forward to getting used to it and sleeping well when he's in bed. Anyways, my new job, I don't really know what to expect. I feel like a lot is being expected of me, I have already been given 2 projects and it's like 10 o'clock! ack! I'm also working longer days to take every other friday off! So we'll see how it goes, I have zumba and pt after that, so I'm not going to be home until like 7:30 pm :(

Other than that, my excercise/weight loss hasn't been as on par as it should be. I went shopping last night and got a bunch of good healthy stuff and semi-organic stuff. I'm trying to be as organic as I can, but it gets hard and expensive! I also started portioning stuff out as soon as I get it home, I got these organic teddy graham cookies and was amazed at how little the 140 calories of them were , once I bagged them up.

Anyways, I'm back on track now and going to get in excercise every day this week and eat well this week as well...

My foods for today looks like this:

B - Organic cinnimon and spice oatmeal (200)
S - Banana (70), organic teddy grahams (140)
L - Wrap with tomato basil turkey and lettuce (150), carrot sticks (30)
S - Apple (70) , Activia Cheese stick (90)
Before work out - nuts 200
Workout: Zumba (1 hr) , p/t (1 hr)
D - Honey garlic chicken (120), Salad (100) , peas? corn? rice? not sure ... TBD
