Well, not the best day. Actually, a pretty crappy day. I was holding it together in the morning, but then it all came crashing down after work.

Breakfast - Better Oats Blueberry Muffin, Banana, Coffee with creamer
Lunch - Subway Turkey Sub on Wheat with lettuce, pickles and lite mayo with a salad of lettuce and spinach, pickles, with FF Italian dressing
Snack - 3 packets of Club crackers I had gotten from Subway
Snack - McChicken Sandwich
Dinner - LJS - 2 fish, 3 hushpuppies, fries, 3 cheese sticks, tarter sauce

See how I fell apart there? Yea, not good. My boys right now seem to be boycotting doing any chores. Last night was Logan's night for dishes. When I got home from work, he hadn't done them yet. I told him they needed to be done by the time I got home from football practice, but as we walked in the door near 8pm, he was just getting started. Needless to say, he's got another week of grounding ahead of him. (He was grounded last week for "forgetting" to go to bed when I told him and staying up late on his computer instead.)

I need to plan ahead a little better. I need to make sure tonight goes better.

As for my workout? Well, I can say I put in a good attempt. I set my NTC app for a 45 minute intermediate circuit workout and started it on the basketball court/parking lot near where Ethan was practicing. 25 minutes into it, I had to stop. My legs were screaming. My abs were screaming. None of that was the reason for stopping. Instead, it was the back pain and the foot pain that made me stop. I still feel broken and sad. Not to mention I'm getting some major pull from the belly hang I have now and it's causing a lot of pain as well. More things I need to note for when I visit the doctor about possible surgery in my future.

I have to say, a sorry workout still dampens my mood. Suddenly I feel unable and that leads to feeling unmotivated to even care. Doesn't help that a quick "check-in" on the scale this morning showed a gain of about 4 pounds from the last gain of 8. Yay! *sarcasm* Will this friggin' EVER end? It's getting to where I have to be as close to perfect as possible to even get anything out of my efforts, and with all the injuries mounting up on me, it's been really hard to stay focused and keep pushing through. I have wanted to just give up more lately than I ever have because it hurts SO DAMN MUCH.

But, today is a new day, right? If I can't workout the way I want to, then I better focus my eating or it's all pointless pain and misery. *sigh*

Food plan for the day:
Breakfast: 2 eggs, coffee with creamer
Snack: apple and almonds
Lunch: salad with almonds and cranberries with FF Italian dressing
Snack: Kind Bar (almonds and cranberries)
Dinner: Keema over 1 cup of brown rice

Have to change up my plan a little for today. I thought I'd have time for an after-work workout so I stupidly stayed up late last night...only to learn right before bed at 11pm that Hubs was asked to work today and swap his day off from Tuesday to Wednesday. *sigh* That means another painful workout at the football field in front of a bajillion people with a hurt foot. Tomorrow he'll be able to pick up Logan from band, though, so I should be able to get in the gym in the evening. I'd like to do laps in the morning and the bike at night, but we shall see if I manage to get up early. I've been uber tired lately and getting up has been a nightmare.


TUESDAY, SEPTEMBER 11th
emoticon Eat Mostly Paleo
emoticon About 2,000 Calories Daily
emoticon 5 Servings of Freggies a Day

emoticon Breakfast at Home, around 500 Calories

2 eggs, coffee with creamer = 250 calories
(I was supposed to have sausage too, but Ethan cooked for me this AM and the sausage wasn't done by the time I had to rush out the door.)

* Healthy Lunch, around 500 Calories

Planned: Salad with cranberries and almonds = 195 calories

* 2-3 Healthy Snacks, for a total of 500 Calories

Planned Snack 1: apple and almonds = 264 calories
Planned Snack 2: Kind Bar = 190 calories
Total = 454 calories

* Dinner at Home, around 500 Calories

Planned: Keema over 1c brown rice = 416 calories

This will put me at around 1300 calories for the day. If I need to eat more I can add in a protein shake with strawberries, but I'd be okay having a low calorie day after yesterday...

    "a sorry workout still dampens my mood" - Yep me too! I get so frustrated, especially with running. I mean, I was faster a year ago when I was in training. Now I'm just slow again and that drives me crazy. I also haven't graduated on any of my DVDs from my 5lb weights. I know I could do better. Frustration with myself I guess.

    And I feel you on the bump foot! Mine cut my run short yesterday :(

    Calm down, girl.

    Do what you can.

    Do not work out to the point where you injure yourself!

    Walk, do housework, move around as much as you can at work.

    At work I find that if I do some small projects first, and accomplish them, I can go on to the big ones. Play some music if you can. Take breaks.

    Eat reasonably, and try to avoid take out.

    I am rooting for you!

    Good luck with your plan. I like how even though you hit some snags, you go right back to it. This is definitely the time when your family has to go all hands on deck - you're gonna need the help!

    I'm not sure what your workouts are composed of (high impact?) but maybe just some walking would help. And only 20 minutes. You are super busy. Just do that and take some pressure off yourself. You're so organized that maybe your cortisol is going up. I don't know, just a thought...just be sure not to beat yourself up over it. I can't get inspired in a gym. Maybe outdoors would lower your stress level. The stress comes through in your writing. No one can deny that you're super dedicated, but maybe you need to relax. Oh, and one thing - housework kills calories. Excuse yourself from the "workouts" to lower your stress by doing laundry, chores as exercise and kill two birds with one stone.
