Accountability Monday - 4/1/13

Spring is trying to sprung.  But in Kansas, that can be a tough battle.  Yesterday it was 70+ degrees and today in the upper 30's...ugh!  While I love spring time....the green, the flowers, the birds...I always forget what a busy time of year this is for me!  Why the schools think its a great idea to cram 3 band concerts and 2 choir concerts into  2 month time is beyond me!  Add that to a child playing 2 spring sports (soccer and track), practices, rehearsals, and other various taxi service and errand running and you get one tired mamma!  This is the time of year that I am required to be even more flexible than normal.  The good news is that I feel like I have finally turned a corner in my journey and the daily routine of things don't seem to be as challenging as they were before...I don't have to fight myself tooth and nail to go workout or eat well.  It's just habit and almost second nature now.  So that makes the hectic nature of things a bit easier to handle.  It is all a journey and you do grow stronger with every day.  Keep pushing forward!

Holidays and celebrations with food are still a huge struggle for me.  I do really well when I can control my food environment.  But I know that is not always practical.  There are going to be times I am around food that is beyond my control.  I will be around food that I don't know the nutritional information for. I can only try to make the best choices I possibly can.  I may not always succeed and that is ok.  With each test I learn more, get stronger, get better.  I just hate that one or two meals can do so much damage on the scale!  I wiped out all of the amazing progress I made last week and then some in those 2 weekend meals.  I still overeat in those situations.  But my choices today are better than those I made before.  And those I make in the future will be even better than now.  Today is a new day and I am back on track!

So on to the sad news...

My weekly results...(3/4-3/10)
Monday weight:  195.0 (up 1.2 from last Monday - Easter food was not kind to me)
Weekly scale +/- (Mon-Sun all weights):  up 0.4...darn holiday celebrations and my lack of stronger willpower!
Workouts last week:  8 (no rest days but feeling good)
Workout minutes:  317
Total miles last week:   13.92
Times at the YMCA:  2

Size Large on the shirt!!  I was having trouble finding clothes to wear....everything was looking too baggy. I actually felt skinny in this.  And the muscle pump class is paying off...I am not totally hating my arms with the warmer weather and short sleeves coming.  I actually have some baby muscles in there!  The shirt is a hand me down from my daughter.  Time for mamma to go shopping again!

  1. I think the admin of this site is in fact working hard
    in support of his website, because here every data is quality based data.

    Also visit my web blog: look at this site

  2. Howdy! Do you know if they make any plugins to safeguard against hackers?
    I'm kinda paranoid about losing everything I've worked hard on.

    Any suggestions?
