Crazy Week!

I haven’t posted in a while – it’s been a crazy week!  We’ve got a customer at work that isn’t satisfied that our product performs, so I’ve been seeing some lo-o-o-ng days trying to hopefully get them happy.  It’s frustrating because they’re basically not following the user manual that comes with the product and then aren’t happy with the performance.  Sigh!

I was able to squeeze a run in on Tuesday, just putzin’ along trying to build some base.  My last run previous to that was another 6 days before that… yikes, I need to move more! I’ve been intending to switch to morning runs, but I’ve been too short on sleep to convince myself to get out of bed earlier when the alarm goes off.  I’ve been using the Nike+ running system and signing up for challenges has been motivating!tball

My eating has been off track, too, with all the stress that’s been at work… so I haven’t been logging.  I know better, too, that being accountable isn’t as painful as I think it is, and it gives me a chance to balance a bad day or two with the rest of the week… whether it’s better food choices or moving more.

On a higher note… my day at work last Saturday turned into a comp day today, so I got the privilege of playing t-ball outside with my toddler today, helping him dunk animal crackers in milk, and getting lots of hugs.  What a sweetheart!  We tried to get a haircut, but he couldn’t sit still long enough to get the first snip in.  E is 18 months old, and all boy. :)  The evening finished up playing with the neighbor’s kids (5 yrs and 18 mos) in the sprinkler.  Summer is here, yay!


Food Log

Wanted to get a quick post up before heading to bed.  I’ve been needing to track my food better – I’m up a little bit from when I hit WW Lifetime in March.  It’s not a whole lot (roughly 5lbs), but I really need to nip it in the bud.  The hard part, I”m discovering, is that I try to use my exercise as an excuse to indulge a little. :)  Sort of like taking one step forward and two back!  So to help with accountability, I’m going to log my food better.


6   1c yogurt w plain oatmeal mixed in (I’m weird sometimes)

I feel like I’m forgetting something… I’ll have to double check tomorrow.  For now, good night! :)
