This Spoke To Me

As I was reading one of my favorite blogs this morning this quote or line from a song ( John Mayer wrote or sings this) jumped out at me and resonated with me and I think it applies in so many areas of our life not just food so here is the quote:

"Oh twice as much ain't twice as good
And can't sustain like a one half could
It's wanting more
That's gonna send me to my knees"

I printed out this quote and put this next to my computer....

I completely fell off the food wagon on Thanksgiving night and my weight jumped up three pounds immediately which I know is temporary since I am reigning in my eating and watching calories.

Will get back to exercising maybe today definitely tomorrow.

I haven't kept a journal in about 10 years now and maybe its time to get back to it as a healthy way to deal with my feelings instead of with food etc..

Well I'm off to eat breakfast have a great Saturday!

Turned My Ankle

Well I have managed to turn/twist my right ankle raking leaves of all things I stepped into a small hole didn't seem bad at the time but now a couple of days and workouts later my ankle is sore so I am now resting it:(

All together I got four workouts done this week and 1 weight training session.

Today I went and got another pair of Asics workout shoes the same kind I got at the beginning of the year. I just love them but they are truly worn out and that can cause problems too..

So that's it from here have a great night everyone.

The Long Road Back

I am taking the long way back from being sick it seems. Haven't been that ill with upper respirtory stuff in about 8 years it was awful. Went to my doctors got meds and after resting for about week I finally feel human again and ready to resume my workouts.

Got up felt fine on Sunday so I put in a hard 3 mile workout on my treadmill with my walk run program lots of walking thanks to being sick.

Then Monday I was trying to do my run/walk and my lower back and hamstrings started really bothering me so I just ended up walking two miles. I tried to lift weights but that didn't work out well either.

Tuesday was better I went to my park walked the 8 laps came home raked for 20 minutes called it a day, Then Today I went to the park and I was able to jog some so I did my 8 laps a little faster came home stretched so I can be able to keep walking if I don't stretch out after working out now I get so stiff its just terrible.

Been working on my abs and watching my eating as well. I am hanging in at 159:) trying to get to maintenance this month we will see how that goes...

Still dreading my husbands layoff next month trying to position ourselves so we can survive both emotionally and financially. If you believe in prayer please pray for us that we will come out alright from this situation...
