Back to the grind

Here I am, back at work today. At least it's Thursday, even though it feels like a Monday. That is a plus to having a holiday in the middle of the week!

Thought for the moment: money blows. Well, it actually only blows when you don't have much. I can't wait till the kids are both in school and I'm not shelling out 1400 a month on freaking daycare. *sigh*

Ok, back to more important issues. Food (fuel) and Exercise:

My eats for today:

I mentioned Yesterday that I had a new recipe for oatmeal. Made it last night for today and it's just as yum. Pretty filling, as far as oatmeal goes, I think. Ate around 8:00 and had a little snack of a little cheese around 10:30. Lunch is SOON though!

1 scoop Click (1/2 portion) and 1/2 cup unsweetened almond milk
B: Yummy pumpkin oatmeal
S: 1.5 oz cabot 75% reduced fat cheese
L: 1 cup vegetarian chili (batch is finally gone!) 1 oz cabot 75% reduced fat cheese
S: 6 medium strawberries, 1 oz almonds
D: likely a salad. I will probably NOT want to turn on the oven to cook!

Saving snack #2 for my "munchy meeting" where I sometimes fall into the pretzel trap. Not with yummy strawberries and my arsenal of almonds!

Workout: Tonight will probably be my sweaty core routine. I want to add some balance exercises too. My balance is NOT good and I need to work on it, especially for the mud-run coming in September. Balance can make or break on when you have to jump from tree stump to tree stump. I don't want to fall off those damn things! Anyone out there have any ideas?

Weigh in is coming up. I have not decided if I am going to weigh in tomorrow morning, or give myelf one more working day and do Saturday morning. Either way, it's coming. The goal is 199. Logically, I know it's not going to happen. But hey, I also believe in miracles!

Hope everyone out there is doing great! Soldier on, my friends!


  1. Girl, I feel you. I was so thankful my oldest hit kindergarten not long after youngest started daycare. I only paid $1000/month for two months, I can't imagine.

    1. Ooooh, so there is a light at the end of the tunnel! LOL As my mom always says: everything always changes, things always get better. :-)

  2. Love your journey. Will definitely be following, Thanks for stopping by Coach Your Mind.

    Remember, the struggle of it all is what catapults us. Here's something I made for my students on that subject ---->

    Keep battling,

    1. Thanks so much!! I'm really excited to check out all of your info!!
