I think I fried my lungs

Ok so today after reading the tip of the day I decided to do my interval training.........outside.......YES OUTSIDE. I llayered up and started with a slow pace, not so bad, but I got about 15 minutes in and I thought my lungs were on fire. and I was thinking not the best idea I ever had. But I did finish with joy in my heart...and fire in my lungs, and boogers in my nose(as my son so nicely pointed out as I came in the door) I came to work tonight and it looks like I might have to stay at the hospital because of call ins and the snow storm...That sucks because I an going to have to forage for somewhat healthy food....Which is a joke because the main staple in the cafeteria is grilled cheese( I forgot my lunch bag at home) You would think there woukl be more healthy choices in a hospital cafeteria, unless they are trying to drum up some business? :)

Week one down

So 1 week complete. I can only hope this next week is as good as week one. I went to get groceries after the meeting yesterday and cooked this weeks food and packaged it up and it is just waiting for me to eat. I did this last week too and it worked out really well. I decided that I would try some pumpkin cookies that I found a recipe for....No sugar you use maple syrup to sweeten them and almond flour instead of all purpose flour.......I think I am going to have to say they would be a trigger food because this morning they are GONE!! Any way they were real good and I have to say I don't feel as bad as if I were to eat a whole box of oreos :) I hope everyone has a GREAT week

First week almost over

I can't believe that my week has gone so well....I shouldn't probably say "I can't believe" but it has been a good week. Just kind of getting in the swing of things and feeling like This is do-able.Trust the process right? I have meditated twice this week and I thought that this was going to be my biggest strugle, but  Ifound it was actually quite nice. I don't have a lot of space in my house that is not open so I just sat in front of my sink. I was  able to really concentrate for 5min 38 sec. but hey it is a start. I wanted to pass along a website that I LOVE it is There are recipes that are family friendly and the ingredients are all on the food list. I use it a lot for recipes and the recipes are FABULOUS! The one down fall is that the calorie info is not on there but I just look up each ingredient and get as close as I can to the calorie amount. Can't wait to see you all on saturday

Official Start

OK so we made it through the first day...My day went well I feel like I am on track things seem like they are off to a good start. I keep thinking that I hope all is still well 7 weeks down the road. Sometimes I seem to start strong and then kind of run out of steam midway through.....So ny thought is one day at a time. Hope everyone else had a good first day!

Cold Feet

I have to say that I almost got cold feet about even starting this program....Which REALLY surprised me. I have really been looking forward to doing this for months and 2 days before the fitness testing I start FREAKING OUT! I think what if I blow it...what if I can't follow through and do this.....Or worse yet what if I fail? After much thought and chatting with my BFF I realized that this is my M.O. This is what I do.....So now what to do? I decided to put my big girl pants on and COMMIT. Not just a little .....A LOT. I am going to trust the process...Trust the Coach ( does this sound familiar Chris?) And pray that things will fall in to place and I  CHANGE. Not just because it is a new year....Because this is exactly what I need to do. Not for anyone else .FOR ME....Why? BECAUSE I CAN!

Love your neighbor as you would love yourself

I heard that commandment yesterday and it got me thinking......Why is it so easy to love everyone else but sometimes it is so hard to love ourself? Especially as women we have so many to take care of and we put ourselves on the back burner. We are so busy taking care of everyone elses needs that ours are forgotten. I say it's time to start thinking more about ourselves. To even start loving ourselves. Because when you love yourself everything else seems to fall in to place. My excuse to avoid self care is that I don't have time, when really when you think about it , there are 24 hours in a day so 1 hour out of that to exercise or take a walk is like nothing. My kids always say (lovingly of course) If Momma aint happy nobody's happy. I think it is safe to say that is absolutely the truth!
