I’m almost over my sickness.  I did go to work today, and it was horrible.  I also managed to weigh myself today.  I lost 1 lb this week. 

This tiny little blog post has tuckered me out.  You will see me again Monday, hopefully healthier and back on the Lent Wagon.

All of My Planning… March 4, 2009

…and I forgot about two things:

1. Girl Scout Cookie season.

2. Getting sick.

I ate a whole box of thin mints this past weekend.  Obviously, not good for my diet.  Plus I am horribly sick (some cold/flu bug).  I go between feeling nauseated just thinking about food and eating everything I can stuff into my mouth.  Again, not great for my diet.  Also this illness is not great for the Lenten Challenge.  But FANTASTIC for my efforts to quit smoking.  Who wants to smoke filthy cigarettes when you can barely breathe to begin with?  Anyway, I think I will be starting fresh with the Lenten Challenge when this bug goes away.  I know it’s cheating, but I am not interested in having a coughing fit while I try and lift my ass up and down an aerobic step.

I have eaten my last girl scout cookie and I hope to implement a fail safe “when I get sick” food plan. 

I think I’ll crawl back into bed now.

Weigh-In and Updates March 2, 2009

So I didn’t get a chance to post last Friday.  SH and I both had the day off and we were out most of the day.  I did weigh in on Thursday though, and I only gained 0.2 lbs.  Am I disappointed that I gained?  Slightly, but I was expecting it.  I’m thrilled that I only gained a very small amount though. 

The Lenten challenge is going OK.  I have been shit about waking up early to work out.  If I manage to squeeze in a workout before bedtime, I’m lucky.  I have been doing yoga and pilates, nothing super strenuous.  I don’t want to burn out on this challenge!  I’ll be upping the ante in a few days by dusting off my Firm DVDs.  I loooooove the Firm.  It absolutely kicks my ass.  I also want to get Jillian’s 30 day shred.  I suppose I’m slightly masochistic when it comes to exercise.   

And the smoking…well, this week I’m supposed to smoke 8 cigs or less per day.  This has been pretty easy to stick to…except for yesterday when I had to work 10 hours.   I smoked about 12 cigs yesterday.  This morning I woke up coughing and with a sore throat.  I’m not sure if I’m getting sick or if I just puffed too much yesterday. 

My diet has been shit.  I have been so busy that I’ve neglected going to the market and my pantry needs a good restocking.  I had pizza at work yesterday and Chinese takeout on Friday. This tends to happen when I don’t have food at home to prepare. 

My goals for the week:

-Plan out my meals for the week and shop accordingly.

-Start using my Firm DVDs.

-Purchase 30 Day Shred

-Purchase some nicotine gum to help cut the smoking to 5 cigs this week.

Happy Monday, everyone!
