Okay, yes, hating to exercise is lame, lol...

I thought about what I wrote yesterday... "I hate to exercise"

How lame was that, lol? For real...
Obviously I know I should exercise and I need to exercise. But I swear every time I start something gets in the way. If it's not one thing, it's another.
And it's hard to get in a routine when you are only going every few weeks.
And every reason I have will sound like excuses. And I have a million of them...

I am at a point where I have plateaued. Even when I eat poorly I only gain a pound or two, but losing any more is difficult. I am sure I need to add some exercise to get past it. So, I will be working on that. Like I said, I have the gym membership, I just have to physically go.
And I know what you're thinking, I need a gym buddy! No. No, I really don't. When I go to the gym, I like to do it by myself. I pop in some ear buds, turn my hairband music up real loud and just walk the treadmill. I don't like to have conversation, because I literally can…

I hate to exercise...

I don't know about you, but I don't exercise. I should. But I don't. Maybe I'm just lazy, (and I do have a gym membership) but I am in the middle of two books with another one in the works, and am trying to do some graphic design side jobs. All sitting jobs. Along with planning and making dinner, I just feel like there's not enough hours in the day...

And they all sound like excuses. Well, they are. But it's how I've always been. I am not an outdoor person, and I hate sweating, lol.

So I concentrate on the food aspect. I do my best to watch what I am eating and count calories. Drink my water. And careful not to drink my calories or eat my emotions/stress eat.
(Ever wonder what happened to my quest to cut the unhealthy flavored coffee creamers out of my diet? Well, I found out that the ingredient that supposedly is bad for you is in almost everything we eat - granted I buy as little boxed, processed, and frozen processed foods as possible - but there are sti…

Made it to the weekend - whew!

It's Friday!


Woot!!

After consuming too many carbs during the Superbowl, I decided this week I would cut the carbs, and look to the weekend. Limit my carbs during the week, then eat some of my cravings on the weekends.
This was the wrong week to do that, lol... PMS week! It was rough. I was lucky that there was no chocolate in the house, and I was too lazy to go out to buy any. Because if it was here, I surely would've eaten it!
I felt like I was depriving myself of all that I so desperately wanted to eat. (I felt as dramatic as that sentence sounded, lol) and it was only 4 days!! haha!

But I drank my water, I tried to stay within my calories, and I ate chicken and veggies - NO STARCHES - for those four days. I still had my half of a bagel in the morning. And I was praying that after all that I actually lost weight this week, seeing as how it is pms week and I typically gain lots of water weight.
I had my Burton Nutrition vanilla protein shakes for lunch. I usually go with a b…
