I’ve basically been sitting on my butt all weekend and the past 2 days. Yikes, I know. I’ve been watching LOST. I finally got on the bandwagon. It’s just so intriguing. But it’s no excuse. Seriously, I need to get off my butt and go running or something. It’s probably because I’m bummed about the job hunting situation as well. I must have sent a million gajillion resumes. No bites. It’s really depressing. If you lost your job in our economic crisis, I’m sorry and I hope everyone gets their jobs back or finds jobs soon. It sucks not having a job.
So… my plan? Just do it. Don’t keep putting it off. Don’t plan. Just do it. Hey, I’m a Nike commercial 🙂

The cold weather is winning. I am powerless against the toastiness. Who can blame me? We’ve been having a heat wave in So Cal for the past couple weeks.
I tried going running today. Tried being the operative word. Ran for about 1 minute, then my ears started getting cold and sore. So ran home because I wasn’t about to get sick. I could do 30DS, but I choose vegging out on the couch.
At least I’m honest 😉

It was the battle between coziness and exercise today. Guess who won? Yup. Coziness. It has been HOT in Southern California the past couple of weeks. When I mean hot, I mean 85 degrees in the middle of January. Today, it rained. And it was cold. And I was powerless to the power of the coziness. So, I got in my comfy pajamas and caught up on my TV shows and watched some movies that came in from Netflix.
Not so good things: I’m stuck. I’m stuck at 166. I remember when I complained about being stuck at 164 for almost 6 weeks. Please don’t tell me that I’ll be stuck at 166 for that long (or longer). Whatever.

Worked out early today. Tried out a new playlist today. Michael Jackson’s Number Ones album. Let me tell you… it made me hyper! Srsly. I was so sweaty and my face was beet red by the time I finished.
I’m trying to get my boyfriend to love oatmeal as much as I do so I decided to put some chocolate chips and cocoa bunnies in his this morning. He loved it 🙂 lol. Not the healthiest thing, but I’ll wean him off it slowly 😉

Lately I’ve been down in the dumps due to the job hunting situation. I’ve been eating healthy, working out regularly, but stress is starting to consume me. Finding a job has been on my mind 24/7. It seems so hopeless 🙁
Anyway, to save money, I’ve been eating a lot of oatmeal for breakfast. This morning I had it with coconut flakes (unsweetened), almonds, cinnamon, and blueberries. Yummy combo. I’m going to try a pumpkin pie-ish type next.

Tonight’s episode was so funny. Carla and Joelle going at it. lol. Did you see the look on Joelle’s face when she figured out that she wasn’t going home? lol. Something hit home for me though. The part where they show the dudes and their medications that they used to take. It reminded me of my Dad. He started taking blood pressure medicine when he was 25 years old. YIKES! He just turned 52 now. I don’t want to be like that. Srsly. My Mom? She takes a hundred bajillion gazillion different medications. It also reminded me of my cousin J. When she came here last month, she saw all the healthy food I have in my fridge and pantry and critcized it by saying that healthy food is too expensive. Well… I rather spend the money on healthy food than expensive medications later on. Right? Right? Right.
Anyway, did Ramp It Up again today. Piece of cake 😉 lol. Just kidding.

Did Ramp It Up today. Wooo… it was a good workout. I can do the entire thing without stopping. I remember when I did the last time, I took sooo many breaks, it was redonk.
I had oatmeal for breakfast this morning and I decided to try some new mixins. I added raisins and it was yucky. Bleh. I’m running out of frozen blueberries :/ I can’t buy any until February. I’m sad.

I’ve been doing 30DS since November, and my body isn’t as challenged as it used to. I’ve decided to do a second round of Slim in 6 🙂 I did the Start It Up level for the last 2 days and it’s way easier this time around than when I did it in September. I’m moving on to Ramp It Up on Monday.
When I finished the first round of Si6, my ass (pardon my language ;)) was hard as a rock. I don’t get much glute workouts with 30DS. By the time I’m finished, I’ll be able to try Jillian’s new workout DVDs. She has 3 coming out in February :).
I haven’t done my good things segment in awhile. So here it is:
Good things: I’ve grown a liking to plain non fat yogurt. I used to hate it. I hated that it was so sour. Now, I love it. I think flavored yogurts are now too sweet.

I worked out today 🙂 I just wanted to share. I was sitting there, staring into space, thinking, “I’m not doing anything… I might as well work out.” So I did, and it feels good.

Hello dear readers (if there are any)! Healthy eating, good sleeping habits, and regular workouts have been challenging lately. I just have a huge amount of stress right now and it’s affecting my new healthy habits. I’m kind of forgetting why I’m doing this in the first place.
I’m looking through my google reader and trying to weed out some of the blogs that don’t update anymore. There are A LOT and each of them are all weight loss blogs. That’s pretty sad. My blog is only about 4 months old. So that’s how long I’ve been on this journey. Others have only gotten to Day 2. I can’t help but be proud that I’ve kept myself accountable for this long.
I think I have to mix it up a bit and also, cut down heavily on the baking. I bake once a week at the most. 1st week of the year, I made banana bread. 2nd week, oatmeal raisin cookies. This week, chocolate chip cookies. I haven’t been giving them away like I used to. Another thing? Too much eating out. Lazy to cook. Those sort of things. I can tell it’s because my mind is consumed with contantly thinking about finding a job. I need to put my health as a priority again.
Most importantly, I need to keep being accountable.
