Me and Cameron on my 30th bday party

Hello all!

Today I woke up feeling the sweet pain of muscle aches. I knew it would come and for a split second I thought “oh… there’s no way I’m getting on that thing today”. With the added menstrual cramps I sank into my bed a little deeper. I looked at the clock and knew if I didn’t get up then and jump on the Wii I probably wouldn’t at all. So I got up… stretched out and tried to shake away the laziness looming over my head.

My parents were heading out-of-town for the weekend so they dropped Cam off at school today, which left me with a house all to myself. Normally I would grab my coffee and watch tv till it was time to go to class. But since Friday’s are my shortest school day I wanted to take advantage of my workout this morning, so I could relax the rest of the day. I did some new strength training excercise and yoga to try and get my muscles going. Wow… there was nothing easy about them. I was shaking and grunting like I was lifting free weights. Just goes to show how much work I need when lifting my butt of the board is tough for me.  I did some of my faves again but felt a bit sluggish and wasn’t scoring what I normally have been. I only did 45 minutes this morning due to having to type up a paper for class.

I went with a bowl of Cheerios for breakfast.  Yum! Last night I had some left over fish for dinner and a Weight Watchers Fudgecicle for dessert. I love them! They’re big  and for those that are following Weight Watchers they are only 1 point!

The weekends are always the toughest. With my parents being gone, instead of making healthy meals for the whole family, I tend to just want something quick and easy. It’s a lot easier for me to get soda and eat junk when there’s no one watching me eat it and drink it. Cameron also has a birthday party to go to which usually means pizza and cake…

But I think I’m going to do okay. If nothing else I’m committed to the workouts and those have helped me stay motivated in the eating area.

Wish me luck!

    So glad you are keeping yourself motivated. I have not been able to do the same lately and I feel crappy. Hopefully I’ll find some motivation like you have soon. Cute photo of you and your little man. :>

    • I get in non motivated modes a lot. I’ve been watching Biggest Loser and that’s been helping me get in a mind set to be consistant. For some reason Wrodpress is not sending me notifications when I get comments other wise I would have answered this sooner! Things that inspire me are The Biggest Loser, seeing people who have gone through some real tradgedies and have a major amount to lose, and yet they’re doing it. Also I look through healthy cook books and it helps me get excited about yummy food that’s good for me.
