Another week begins…

12 09 2011

Last week I had every intention of posting another blog, but it just didn’t happen. I also didn’t get in any more cardio or any yoga/meditation. Grrrr!! I’m a bit disappointed in myself, but I’m going to focus on the positive and try again this week. I DID track everything that went into my mouth Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, and most of Friday. This is a HUGE improvement for me! This week, I’m aiming for all 7 days.

This week is going to be a challenge because I’m going to be attending a conference for work. The days will be long, leaving little to no time for exercise, and the food will be plentiful I’m sure. I’m going to do my best to make wise choices, get in as much water as possible and try to be creative in getting in my workouts.

The best part of my weekend was beginning a huge project of refinishing an old desk. I bought this desk and hutch about 10 years ago. It was a beautiful cherry finished wood, but it had definitely seen better days. I wanted a crisp, clean look and decided to sand it down and paint it white. I figured it would be a big job, but I really had NO idea what I was getting myself into. I got two full coats of paint on it after sanding it down Saturday. Yesterday I was able to another 2 coats on the hutch and legs, and 3 on the desk top. The desk top is done (I think :)) and the hutch and legs need at least one more if not two… But it was a lot of fun and I’m looking forward to the finished product.

I used to do a lot DIY stuff around the home, and I’m really enjoying getting back into it. It is a great distraction from the fridge as well as from thoughts of food, etc. I’ll post more pics of my projects soon. 🙂

I agree with Sidney on both accounts. The DIY projects will give you a sense of accomplishment, will give you a fun/creative outlet which will hopefully keep you inspired to do more and it will keep you busy. I know for me, the busier I keep the easier it is to stay on track. plus you are getting activity into your day. You don’t have to workout in order to be active.

Also, planning and keeping hydrated are key! I have no other advice to give you because you know it already!

You sound really good and you are moving forward really well!! I like the positive attitude!! I love DIY projects, I think you are going to love having the desk finished!!! It can be sort of a reminder for you, that you can get it done 🙂

Good luck at the conference. Plan, plan, plan, if you let yourself get too hungry it will be so easy to get off plan. Yes, water will be your friend this week!!!
