I have been in a kind of a slump this week and not wanting to do ANYTHING, but I did get up and do a light workout. Right now I am feeling a little more motivated thanks to Sarah's blog she talked about how when people slow down in their blogging it makes her feel like everyone else gave up, so she should,too. I feel that way, too, so we should all help each other out and keep blogging! Like Sarah said...now is the time to be kick ass. We can do it!
So, I decided I need to get back on to counting calories...I am horrible at this, but when I started doing it a few weeks ago I lost a little over 2 pounds in a week! So I think tonight I am going to sit down and plan out my meal plan, including calorie count, for the next few days! If I stick to it, I will know I stayed to my limit, if I eat something extra, I will just have to add those calories in. As a reward, if I stick to my plan, I am going to allow myself to have some extra buttery popcorn when I go to the movies with my sister this weekend. I know you shouldn't reward with food...but I am a sucker for movie theater popcorn, honestly it is my biggest weakness. I can not go int o a theater without getting popcorn and a cherry coke. Plus, one day shouldn't throw me off too much.
I have been feeling the Cabin fever lately, too. I know that exercise will help me beat this, so why not make the most of it? I like to crack open the patio door while I exercise and pretend that it is spring....the fresh air does wonders for your mood...do you know you should get at LEAST 30 min of fresh air a day? I want to take Harliegh outside, especially since it is Minnesota Nice (30 degrees) but the snow goes up to my waist so I have a sneaking suspicion it would not be very fun.
Another thing that has been getting me down is that I am feeling overwhelmed with all I have to do lately....usual mom stuff, housework, homework.....so I made a list of everything I needed to do this week and I plan on checking at least two things off the list everyday.
So everyone, stay motivated!!! Don't give up now.
