Day 359  My Struggle………

What can I say about today. It wasn’t great or bad just so so. I took my oldest ones car and got it aligned. My husband is going to change the oil and it’s ready for her to take to college.

My day consisted of a trip to town, taking kids to/from school, and laundry. 

I’m behind on my steps. Will be working on that later. 

I’m doing good on my calories. I’m trying to cut some carbs but my fat grams are up. I’m also very moody. Apparently cutting carbs makes me grouchy. I didn’t even cut them that low. It’s having a big affect on me though. I don’t know if my family or even I can stand myself for a week of this. 

Hope you’re having a good night!

Day 358   My Struggle……

One more week and I’ve blogged everyday for a year. My last post will actually be on September 1st. I’m close to my goal but it’s not looking like I’m going to hit it. I’ve been contemplating on how I’m going to handle it if I don’t reach it. 

I managed to get my steps in last night even though it was tough. I had Zumba today so I have my steps in with 60 active minutes.

My eating has been good today. I had a protein shake for breakfast/lunch. String cheese for snack. Dinner was a struggle but I managed. I had two bites each of meatloaf, mashed potatoes,green beans, and 1/2 a roll. That was kinda like my appetizer. For my big meal I had a boiled egg and can of tuna in water. It was filling and my calories and nutrition are all good. Plus, I even have room for my low calorie ice cream.

That’s all for today!

Have a great night!

Day 357   My Struggle………. 

Yesterday was such a good day I should of knew today would be a challenge. Thankfully, it’s about over. I went to bed early last night. I was thinking I’ll feel good in the morning. Nope not a chance. I have been tired and achy all day.

I hit my head on a metal pole outside. No injury just a sore head. Then my car battery died at the school house while in line to pick up my kids. My friends husband jumped my car and it’s been fine since. 

I had Youth Night at church tonight. It went good and I was feeling better by then. I’m just really wore out and I have a headache. I need to get at least 4000 more steps in but I’m not feeling it. 

My eating has been okay. Still plenty of room for improvement.

Have a great night!

Day 356   My Struggle………

I’ve been busy today. I went to town and got groceries. I was making excellent time, feeling good, having a pretty good start to my day. Then I got stuck behind a train. I was two minutes from my home and the coal train got me. This is what feeds our family so I didn’t want to be too upset. I sat there for an hour. It was awful. I didn’t let it ruin my good day though.

I came home got groceries put away and straightened the house. Then I worked on a new fun song for Zumba. My fun song is usually a song from the eighties lol. If you’re wondering , it was Conga. 

Thanks to practicing and having Zumba class I have in 20,000 steps with over 150 active minutes! It’s been awhile since I sweat that much.

My eating has been good today calorie wise but needs work on the nutrition side. I’m under calories for the day though.

Have a great night!

Day 355   My Struggle……..

I’ve had a good day! Enjoyed watching the eclipse with my youngest two. We didn’t see complete totality but it was about 90% at my house. I was happy with what I saw without having to deal with traffic and crowds. 

I made eclipse cupcakes for my family. I only ate a bite. I also made pumpkin spice pancakes for breakfast. I only had a bite of those too. 

I didn’t eat the best over the weekend so, I tried to be extra good today. I got in my steps thanks to Zumba this evening. I got in the pool a little while too this evening with my youngest. 

It has just been a pleasant day!

Hope you have a great evening!

Day 354     My Struggle………

Happy Sunday!

Hope everyone has had a good weekend. I feel much more relaxed. So, my plan worked out.

I went to church this morning and came home and slept for two hours. I didn’t know I was so tired. I guess instead of a relaxing day it was more on the lazy side.

I’ve done good eating today. Not so good on exercise. That’s why I’m walking in place while writing this blog. 

I decided to go ahead and do laundry tonight. That way I can enjoy tomorrow with my kids. I’m making cupcakes tomorrow to celebrate the eclipse. To decorate I’m going to make moon phases out of oreos. Not making a big deal about the eclipse. Just happy to have my kids home with me for it. Which where we live we’ll be lucky to see a partial eclipse.

Hope you have a great night!

Day 353  My Struggle………

Yesterday, I decided to have a relaxing day. I’m not sure if I know how to do that. I wasn’t stressed so I guess that means I was relaxed. 

I got up straightened the house, cleaned a little, and put on a roast for dinner. I know I didn’t want to clean today but I have to do some everyday or I’m stressed from the mess. Then there will be no way for me to relax. 

I did get in the pool today. I got in and cleaned it pretty much the whole time I was in there. We haven’t been in it since school started so there was lots of bugs and dirt to remove. When I finished and thought about enjoying it ,a horsefly decided to join us. He would not leave me or my youngest alone. We decided to get out before we got bit.

I’m definitely going to spend the rest of the evening relaxing. It’s only 8pm so I think I can be lazy the rest of the night. I’m going to try to anyhow. Except, I haven’t got in all my steps. The walking in the pool doesn’t count because I had to take my Fitbit off. I guess I will have to walk in the house till I get them in.

My eating has been 50/50 today. Half good and half bad. 

Life is a struggle. I struggle when I have too much to do. I struggle when I’m trying not to do too much. Though my day sounded pretty crazy, it’s been a good day.  I like getting things done during the day then I can spend my evening doing nothing. Even, if my nothing is really something. 

Least I don’t have to cook tomorrow! Leftovers are awesome.

Have a great night!
