Day 351   My Struggle………..

Happy Friday Eve! I’m praying for a great three day weekend. I still haven’t got in the pool one more time like I wanted. That’s my plan for the weekend. I just want to relax and enjoy it. Last weekend went by way too fast.

Yesterday, when I wrote my blog I was way under on my steps. I managed to get 16,000 steps and over 100 active minutes. Tonight I had Zumba so I have my steps in and 70 active minutes.

I did good on my food calories today but I’m over on my sugar again. I’m over today because I had a Coke Life. I haven’t had one in over a week. I was feeling tired before Zumba so I felt I needed a little kick.

Hope you have a blessed evening!

Day 350  My Struggle………

I went grocery shopping this morning after taking the kids to school. Going to town kills my whole day. I have to go back Friday to have my daughter’s car aligned. I really dread it but it has to be done. I’ve been tired since I’ve been back. I guarantee tonight I’ll be wide awake when I should be sleeping.

I’ve done good eating today. I’m getting pretty good at staying in calorie range. Still need to work on sugar and sodium though.

I’m way behind on steps. I knew today would be a challenge meeting my goal. I have a few hours left. I’m not giving up yet. Let you know tomorrow if I make my goal.

Have a great night!

Day 348    My Struggle………

Today was a normal Monday. Clean the house and do laundry. Nothing exciting there. I weighed in today and I now have 6 pounds to go. Talk about cutting it close. Only 17 days to go!

I have got in 13,000 steps so far with 81 active minutes. I have Zumba to thank for that.

My calories are good for the day. I mentioned the protein shakes are helping during the day. I think my evening snack of string cheese is great for evening. Probably, because I take my time eating it.

Have a great night!

Day 345   My Struggle…….

I’m tired this evening. I have so much still to do but it looks like I’ll be doing it tomorrow. I went to town this morning after dropping the kids off to school.

It was a grocery trip with some fun added in. I had breakfast with some family that came in from Ohio. I tried to eat as good as I could considering we were at Cracker Barrel. I ordered one pancake with sugar free syrup and two egg whites scrambled. 

If I don’t eat anything else but a string cheese for snack. My calories are good for the day. 

I had to go to town again after coming home and putting groceries away. This time I went down the other side of the mountain to go pick my oldest up so she could be home a few days. We’re still working on getting her car fixed. She moves back in the dorms next weekend. I hope it’s ready for her by then. 

Do to all the driving I’ve done ,I’m behind on steps. I’m going to try my best to get them in later. It should only take about 30 minutes. I hope I can walk that long at least.

Have a great night!

Thanks so much for reading and God Bless!

Day 341   My Struggle……….

It’s Monday! I’m pretty glad this day is about over. I had to take my mother in law to the Dr. this morning. It just had to rain today. It seems like it rains every time I have to go somewhere. 

When I got home I had to start laundry and clean the house. Looks like I’ll still be doing laundry tomorrow. I picked up subs for dinner so I didn’t have to cook at least. 

I had Zumba tonight. I’m still a few steps short of my goal but I’m going to get them no matter what it takes. I have an hour of cardio in for the day. 

I have not ate dinner yet. I’m going to have a lean cuisine. I bought the subs for my husband and kids. I had protein shakes for breakfast and lunch. I’m going to try and be really good this week since I splurged on the weekend. Hopefully, it will balance out.

Hope your week has started off great!

Day 338    My Struggle………

This morning started off with taking the kids to school. I still can’t believe summer vacation is over.

I came home and napped. My body wasn’t ready for the change either. When I got up I cleaned house and did the laundry. Then it was time to go back and pick up the kids.

I try to always pray for my children. Sometimes more than once a day. I know God definitely heard and answered my prayers today. My oldest could of easily went over the bank this evening in her car. The power steering locked up on her. There is not a scratch on her and by looking at the car you can’t tell anything is wrong with it. God is so good!

My eating has been good today but I am still working on my steps. This weekend is going to be challenge because we are going to the lake. 

Hope everyone has a blessed weekend!
