Lack of motivation

I attempted to wake up at 6 this morning to workout. I really did not want to at all. I took a Zyrtec last night before going to bed because something in the air has been hard in my nose. It knocked me out. I didn’t even wake up to pee and I always do! I heard my alarm and shut it off and rolled over. I need to just force myself to get up. Starting tomorrow…

I did actually get up to make breakfast for us. That hasn’t been happening either lately. I made muffins last weekend and have been eating those this week. So I made the usual 2 slices of bacon and 2 scrambled eggs. I’ve found it easiest to use the same pan. I cook the bacon first and dump the grease into my bacon grease jar and then with the grease left in the pan make the eggs. Then we too the eggs with a tablespoon of salsa. I make Chads first since he leaves at 7 and then mine right before I leave and bring it to work to eat. Usually I have half of an avocado with it too but those have been going bad fast. I think because its been so hot lately.

Lunch was leftover bacon wrapped meat muffins. Chad made those last night since I had to watch the boys.

Dinner is cooking in the crockpot. Spaghetti squash with some marinara sauce. I enjoy my crockpot…it makes my life easier.

Back to my lack of motivation…we we’ve shopping last night for clothes and I tried on a cute long dress. It was very clingy to my body and I asked chad if I could pull it off…his response was, “yeah, if you lose some weight.” Thanks hunny, we can’t afford for both of us to join crossfit so I’m stuck with lack of motivation and no support…I’m a little irritated. Don’t get me wrong, I would like to lose some but it was a slap in the face. I am not overweight or even close. I weigh 135 and am 5’7. My weight sits in my stomach and my lack of motivation has caused me not to work very hard. So I have decided tonight I’m going to get home and go for a run and then do a side workout. Or vise versa since he will be home and I don’t like to do workout videos when people are watching me and not doing it too.

Hopefully I can do it…


Weekend blues

This weekend was a sad weekend on my part. Friday night I babysat until 1 am then went straight to bed because I had to nanny at 8. I did manage to make chocolate chip cookies and fudge before. Then Saturday I got home and made Spinach Artichoke Dip with the goat cheese and it was amazing. I was very impressed by it and am excited to take some to work tomorrow. I ate it with sweet potato chips and it was delicious. I had to prep for this weeks meals so I began by going grocery shopping. I find it easiest to plan my meals ahead of time and then write the list of things I need. But I discovered a meal plan app that is pretty cool. You input your recipes and what food you have in your pantry and it will tell you what you need to buy. That came useful when I realized I forgot my written list on the coffee table when I decided to add the spices I ran out of. Saturday I hit up Target (I just like the store and was in the mood for a puzzle since I had all day/night to occupy myself), Sprouts and King Soopers. And went home and worked on my puzzle. I really should have made some meals for this week but I’m a slacker. I also watched episodes of Weeds while having an Angry Orchard Apple Ginger Cider with my sister. Today was a bobble head giveaway at the Rockies game so I took a friend and we got the bobble heads and went shopping on the 16th Street Mall. We did make it to the game for an inning before we decided to leave. She’s 20 weeks pregnant and I was craving my puzzle…now I sit again at someone’s house updating my weekend. I was told I was the best babysitter ever. That made me feel good about myself. Actually, probably made my weekend!

I didn’t mention what I ate yesterday besides the dip. I caved and had jimmy johns again except with the bread. I know, terrible. This morning I had a smoothy for breakfast, an elk burger with sweet potato fries (mmm) for lunch and a turkey dog and carrots for dinner…

First post

My Nikki’s Coconut Butter came in the mail today! I’m really excited to try some new stuff with it and maybe eat some from the jar too!

My other half is back in MN for the weekend so its just me. Weird. He’s gone for 5 days and every night I have things going on except tonight and Saturday night. So I decided to make food that he doesn’t like as much as me. Breakfast was our generic 2 eggs and 2 slices of bacon with half of an avocado and some salsa. Lunch I didn’t prepare for so I used my punch card for Jimmy Johns and got a free unwich. I must say, it’s not as good as the French bread. But I’m trying to stick as close to paleo as I can…and last night we had firehouse subs so I figure I better not have bread 2 days in a row…plus I didn’t feel very good after eating it. Darn gluten! Dinner I decided to make bacon chicken Alfredo from Paleomg. It was my second time making it and it turned out just as delicious as the first time. I couldn’t find the delicata squash so I used acorn. And instead of a half cup of coconut milk I used a whole can. Mmmm. Leftovers for the next few days!

I was silly and signed up for the rock and roll mini half marathon since Chads running the half with my aunt. I’m not a runner. I actually don’t like it at all. But I downloaded an app and it helps me. It tells me every .5 miles…I have yet to make it an entire mile and a half! I ran 1.21 miles today…yay!

Time to watch some the Big Bang theory season 3…
Until next time!
