Getting derailed 2/20/2013

Having a hard time this week.  Why do I let junky food into the house?  And combined with a long weekend in which I totally fell off tracking my eating…not good.  Scale is up the past few days.  I wish it were just all the sodium, and the fact that it’s TOM week for me.  But I doubt it.  We’ll see if there’s a woosh somewhere down the line. 

So I got back to tracking yesterday, but ate junk when I got home from work.  Logged it all.  Tracking again today.  Planned work lunch and snacks today.  Resisted the temptation to stop and buy a brownie on the way to work this morning.  Well, I didn’t really resist it.  I just happened to have no cash in my wallet and wasn’t about to whip out the debit card for a $3 purchase.  Whatever - I didn’t buy it, so yay for me.  :)

The ww at work informational meeting is this Friday.  I will attend and likely register.  I sure need it right about now!! 

Still not exercising.  I’m being dumb because I really don’t feel very good physically and I attribute it to lack of exercise.  I don’t have the same energy level, my mood is kind of crummy (not that this winter weather is helping), and my body just feels old and creaky.  It doesn’t help that I’m still having a bit of back pain from when I threw it out coughing.  And yesterday I slipped several times and fell once on what I thought was just a harmless dusting of snow on the pavement.  Pulled my “problem” hamstring.  Bleh.

Last night I looked over the park district catalog for the spring session (starts mid-March).  They just added a kettle bell workout.  Sunday mornings!!!  I think it’s only six sessions, but it’s kind of pricey to me - per class price comes out to about $15.  But I like that it sparked my interest.  And I find that when I pay for classes, I usually won’t skip them.  So I might just go ahead and register for that class before I overthink it all.  :D

    The way that you describe how you are feeling sounds just like how I’m feeling. We need to snap out of it! The kettlebell class sounds great and according to Bob Harper it burns “mad calories”. Go for it!

    I hope you didn’t hurt yourself when you slipped. I had a bad fall one year when the steps iced over outside my apartment. I ended up with a wounded pride and broken phone and sore hip.

    Ugh.

    Exercise improves my mood too but when I go too long without doing it, it takes a stronger push to get the will power to get it done. Good luck with everything!

    Yikes–$3 for a brownie…crazy world.

    I hear you on the physical end of things. Over the last two weeks, I had the cold, the finger incident, and yesterday, I smacked the soft spot just under my lip with the car door. Don’t ask. It’s hard to maneuver with a huge bandage on your dominant hand. Anyhow, I’m feeling rough this week.

    $3 for a brownie? Go buy a case of cliff bars- better for you, taste fabulous- and a case of 24 bars is like $19. :)
    At work everyday the girls get brownies and cookies and I munch on my cliff bars now and then- and NO I don’t share! ;)
    It’s hard to not buy a lot of junk food, but maybe next time you go to the store you could make sure to go after eating so you aren’t as tempted?

    LOL @ your reason for not buying the brownie. Thank goodnes for not having cash. ;)
    I haven’t been tracking any of my food as of late. I’ve just been eating “healthily” as much as possible. Double ;)
