Sometime next week, I will write up a routine list for the morning/noon/night, so that I have a physical, visual list that I can keep at arm’s reach all day, and mark off when I complete different things. I tend to get all gong-ho on a health/workout/eating kick, and I inevitably start to do less and less, and ultimately stop. I have trouble keeping up the motivation and routines. I want to change this, but it is difficult for me. I find that lists in notebooks near me help the best during the day.
Lately, I have been eating very well. For example, tonight, I made giant, stuffed portabella mushroom tops. The stuffing was a sautéed mix of: shrimp, celery, red/yellow/orange peppers, onions, the gills inside the mushroom and a creamy, spiced goat cheese that my sister wasn’t going to eat and gave to us. I steamed a stir-fry mix of frozen veggies, and made a salad, too! Yum. My mom and son loved it! Good food is gooood. I have been keeping better nutrition choices in mind, not that I have a bad diet by any means (unless the fast-food bug bites me). I have been avoiding wheat/gluten an dairy, and have been trying to buy food items labeled as GMO-FREE, and the like. We have also been buying most of our meat in organic form. All-in-all, nutrition is my best area.
HEALTHY is the new SKINNY! :)
On the sleeping front, I suck. With my son home all day now, I don’t have any me time anymore…unless it is after he goes to sleep (it is currently almost 2:30AM). I love sleep, I do, but, I think I love quiet me time even more. I can’t get on 43T at any other time. And, 43T is a big part of my Sanity Diet! Sanity has been lacking the last couple of weeks. My hormone levels must be very off. I have been trying to take my daily supplements, but I am awful at it. Two days ago, I started taking a thyroid health supplement; hopefully makes some kind of change in my stress levels and general demeanor.
I have been starting to work out and trying to move everyday…even if it’s just numerous sets of various exercises for fifteen minutes or so. I like doing exercise moves during commercial breaks if I am watching at TV show. I found a new appreciation or the dreaded commercial breaks. I have also been keeping up with my 200 Squats Challenge (after the 200 Sit Ups I did). I need to start adding in cardio, along with daily Yoga or Pilates. I plan to start jogging again next month. I want to get my mom and kiddo out with me, moving and enjoying the fresh air and sunlight.
When it comes to drinking more water, I think I am doing well. I can always do better, but I am drinking a proper amount. I need to start putting apple cider vinegar in my water everyday, away from my supplements. I feel much better with that added in.
By this time next year, I plan on looking nothing but smokin’, bangin’ hot! ;) ...AND FEELING EVEN BETTER THAN THAT!!
