Feeling the Burn

Well, this has been a week of good news/bad news. As per my resolution, I found something good to go along with every bad thing that happened.

The bad news is that my eating has been totally chaotic. I've been working late, skipping breakfast (and sometimes lunch), and running errands in my down time. This has led to fast food runs and crazy snacking.

The good news is that next week should be so very much better. I've already planned my food out, I'm going to spend part of Monday packing my lunches ahead, and dinners should be a snap.

The bad news is that my water aerobics class was cancelled. They didn't have enough people sign up for it. I was really looking forward to it.

The good news is that I'm a week into my Daily Burn program, and I am loving it! I have exercised EVERY SINGLE DAY this week. That is a record for me. I'm really feeling it, too. I'm not bored, and I am really looking forward to advancing to the next level. That is still several weeks away, though.

The bad news is that I have not done any walking. I haven't really even been walking my dogs. It's been so cold out that even my furbabies don't want to be out longer than they have to, so our potty walks aren't even hitting a quarter mile. Not worth counting.

The good news is that I plan on getting back on the treadmill. Since I do my workouts in the morning, I can still go to the gym in the evenings. I'm not going to do that for a couple more weeks, though. I want to get my eating back in line first, so don't look for update on my miles yet.

That's my week. I have been feeling really great lately. I know part of it is that Xmas is over (worst holiday of the year for me--tons of stress and really no benefits), and part of it is the days getting brighter. But I think there's more to it than that. I really feel like things are going to be better this year: my weight, my fitness, my finances, my job, and my relationships.

  1. sounds like you've made corrections to make up for all the 'bad' stuff. Good for you!!! :)

  2. I love how you look for the good while recognizing the bad. Lunch prep has been good for me as it forces me to stay on plan. Glad youre finding your way back !

  3. Shame the water aerobics was cancelled ...... try to do some work on your treadmill if you can. Walking outside is great - even if it is a short walk!

    Glad to hear "the good news is that next week should be so very much better. I've already planned my food out," You have a good plan.

    All the best Jan
