{Marathon Mayhem} I think I skipped a week


I worked a lot of overtime this week, so my days are a little or a lot } jumbled. I did a quick glance at my calendar, and I’m pretty sure I missed last week. So let me catch everyone up.
PhotobucketIt’s not bad progress. I mean, it’s more than I was exercising before. I just want to be more active. Even I should have 15 minutes a day to do something that could count as a workout. A few of these “success” days were running with my son out in the yard. 30 minutes of playing with a toddler definitely counts as exercise in my book.

The trickier part for me is eating. I eat like I’m pregnant. That doesn’t mean “eating for two” or any other cliche about overeating. I get food swings. One day nothing will sound good at all, so I usually end up drinking a lot of coffee that day. Other days { like today } I get a really strong craving, and that’s all I want. Today it was wings from Domino’s. In addition to an order of wings, I ate half a Chicken Parm sandwich, had Coke to drink, and I’m about to “wash it down” with a Reese’s.

I don’t even know what goals to set for the next week. I think the weather forecast shows it cooler than it has been lately, so hopefully I can get out and walk. I wish the mosquitoes weren’t so bad at my house, I’d take the kiddo for an evening stroll. There are several factors that prevent that. Mosquitoes, and the fact that every bite I get swells to the size of a 50 cent piece that’s big for those of you who are too young to know what one looks like } plus when I work our evenings are hectic at best, and lastly people in the country drive twice the speed limit and usually don’t see what’s in front of them until they hit it… I have a dislike for being anyone’s speed-bump.

Looks like more living room wrestling with “mine” I’ve decided to start calling him that since it’s his new favorite word } and probably less food swings. I’m already not excited for this coming week.
