Mindset 7/5 Tuesday

I have to adjust a little bit for tomorrow because I have to take into account this sunburn 😦 Anyway, here is the Mindset plan for tomorrow:

  1. Upper body workout (I already have alternate exercises ready for tomorrow to accommodate this sunburn)
  2. Walk 30+ minutes – mall walking is what I do at 9 am. It’s safe, air conditioned, and they have a playground for the kids.
  3. Drink 8c H2O
  4. Log intake
  5. plan for Wednesday

For my gratitude:

  1. Call my ma to thank her for coming to visit today
  2. bring my old lady friend at the mall walkers a bottle of water. She always forgets hers and I see her struggling at the water fountain.

Ok that’s my plan! For dinner tomorrow I’m making garlic lemon chicken breast with rice and broccoli. My cleaning project is, you know, everything because my kids only know how to MAKE messes. When it comes to cleaning shit up, I get, “But mom it’s not mine!” Because the my little pony parade – that seemed to be bombed by barbie and her militant friends, the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles – is mine, right? UGH All you have to say is OK mom and do it! Then maybe next time I won’t have to tell you to do it!!

Anyway, I got cleaning to do. night all!

YOU HAVE TO PLAN

Yesterady, the Fam Bam went down to the beach to watch fireworks off the marina. We were there from about noon to 10 pm. It was a last minute plan and I was all alone in trying to pack and get 3 kids ready etc. But we got it done and had a great time! Except for one thing. I put myself last again.  Continue reading

Organization is Our Friend

Being pissy missy, I got in an extra yoga session, had dinner (chicken noodle soup) and just soaked in negativity for a while. Then I thought about it for a moment. How can I make this anger-session positive (remember, I’m still trying to wrap my brain around The Secret). I thought I would create a little packet that I can take with me as a way to keep me motivated and on track. How did I do that, you ask? Two words: Index Cards. Continue reading

Slave to my Emotions…

So, this week I am undertaking this pretty huge change in my life this week. Though I haven’t been perfect (FAR from it), I have tried and grown (in little ways) closer to my goals. AND BONUS! I have come one pound closer to where I want to be. BOOM BABY! Trying to keep a check on my emotional eating, I really, really do my best to understand the triggers.  Continue reading

Mindset Day 6, Sat 7/2

Hate to post and run but I gotta get working and it’s already 10 pm. I’m trying to put myself on a better sleeping schedule. Anyway! Here is the mindset for tomorrow!

  1. Workout
  2. walk 30+ mins
  3. drink 8c H2O
  4. Log intake
  5. Plan for Sunday

My encourage and gratitude list is

  1. Call my sis-in-law so she can chat with the girls
  2. be nice to BF even though today he was a complete tool.

That’s it! I have like 12 hours of transcribing that I need to get done so I’m gonna get going.

Take care everybody. And be kind.

Chptr 3: buh-bye

WARNING! SECOND LONGEST POST EVER!

So chapter 3 is about nutrition. It’s talks about quantity vs quality, 7 vital nutrients that your body really needs, and the scientific data to support that conclusion. It was very informative! The chapter itself is thorough and well presented. I hope that I don’t dumb it down for you – I don’t mean to. I think this is where I get lost on some of the programs — because I think I’ve tried them all.  Continue reading

Chptr 2- Exercise Rx. I don’t wanna…

The first chapter of “Transformation” was a heartfelt search into what and why I wanted to get into shape. I laughed; I cried. And at the end – after the most humiliating pictures I think I have ever made very public – I feel I came out a better person.

Chapter Two – not quite as riveting.  Continue reading
