Long Time … Why No Post

Someone hasn’t blogged in awhile. We’re not going to mention the lack of vlogging either. But the reason?

I ended up sick, which meant things got hectic. That means I fell behind in everything.

The real truth is that my bi-polar gave me a bit of a ride the past ten or so days. That means that I was barely motivated to move out of the bed for work. I’m thankful that I know the signs, and it didn’t get as bad as it could. I’m also thankful I have friends and family who help me in ways they would never understand!

Missed a Day

Untitled

I missed yesterday. No real excuse, minus it was a “Rest” day. Meaning I took a nap. After we went to Kmart, Hobby Lobby, Best Buy, and Walmart.

Best Buy and Walmart were the only places we spent money, so HEY, woo hoo for us!

I got a new pair of headphones that my ears have to adjust to:

I really do like them!

Being Honest With Myself

Diet and workouts haven’t been the greatest, but since I got my Shakeology in the mail, I’ve had one every. single. day.

  • My IBS hasn’t had a flair-up, and I’ve put it to the test by drinking milk (it was skim, so that does make a difference).
  • Even when I’m doing butt o’clock early shifts, with little to no sleep, I have time to have a shake. If I have more time, I make it more special (currently addicted to Snickerdoodle ), but I’m fine with just unsweetened vanilla and a scoop.
  • I get hungry at a decent time when it comes to lunch. With other ones (like Carnation Instant Breakfast, even the extra protein ones), I was hungry, shaking hungry, within 2 hours. Sometimes I’m not even hungry 4 hours later, when I’m usually going on lunch. I have to force myself to eat
  • I find myself looking FORWARD to the shake!

This week, the focus will be getting small changes in my diet. I’m a calorie tracker. For me, I have to. I can’t wrap my head around the container system, but I need to at least figure out meals and things. Thank GOD for Ashley’s accountability group starting tomorrow

The 14th, I’m back on the PiYo train. I’ve found myself MISSING the workouts, but 4-5 hours of sleep lately means I’m coming home and just passing out. I just can’t do it. Though yesterday, I logged, according to my FitBit, like 97 minutes of vigorous exercise, cleaning. My shoulders are KILLING me today. But I’m not logging that as a workout. I’m being honest with myself.

Which that is a big mindset change, as well. Being honest with myself. I’ve needed to do that for a long time.

So, honestly, that was a long ass post, and I’m going to shut up now. Back to the sweaty selfies tomorrow

Re-Watching a Classic

Today was my Sunday. We went to the pool and I spent all day reading. Oh trust me, it was a blast for me. I enjoyed every second of it. I let the kids just have fun and I just enjoyed some quiet time in the sun but in the shade.

This week, after seeing a Facebook notice from The CW, I have been watching a show I haven’t seen in years (it’s been off the air for 11 years!).

Everwood was an amazing show. I haven’t seen these episodes in years (as I said, 11 years since it was actually on TV), but I’m going “Hey, I remember that! This happened next!” and I’m only into the 9th episode of the first season.

It was a show that stuck with you. It was where I personally learned to love Chris Pratt. It was before he was on The OC, Parks and Recreation, even as Starlord in Guardians of the Galaxy.

Everwood was a GREAT show, and you should really take advantage of the totally free viewing off all the seasons, right now, on the CW Seed!
