Better night

Tonight was a better night. The day started out kinda crappy because I had to get up early and go by Occupational Health and went through a bunch of junk there and I have to get up early tomorrow to deal with the same junk, but I'm much better emotionally right now. I had a good night working my 6 hours. I'm pretty tired, but hoping that as I get well physically and get back into working, that I'll get used to it again and won't be so tired. Talking so much really wears me out. I can tell that I strain a lot more than I used to do. I still have a lot of work to do on my voice, but hope to get better quickly. *crossing fingers*

I ate well before work, but on the way home I was SO hungry and knew I didn't have anything to eat at home, so I stopped and got a burger and fries. Ugh. My eating is so off lately. I do good for a meal, then bad, then good... I need to get back on track and stay there. I had been really good at logging my food in a notebook and it kept me motivated. Gotta get back to that.

I haven't gotten any "formal" exercise this week, but work is busy and I'm constantly on my feet and walking and pulling and all that other nursey stuff so it's better than sitting on my butt all night. It might not sound like much, but after I graduated school and started working, I lost 15 pounds without changing anything else. Nursing is a very physical job and although it doesn't take the place of planned exercise, it does help to keep me active. Gotta work out my gym routine too. I just got my schedule for the next 6 weeks so I'm gonna try to sit down and plan out my exercise. Schedule it like appointments and see how well that works. It's a process... lol Right now I just have a calendar for work nights and appointments, but I think I might try to write in my exercise days and times too.

Ok.. off to bed so I can get up early and take care of big company politics. Sigh. Hope everyone has a great day!

How do you plan your exercise? Do you have it all written out or just wing it? 
Do you have a fitness/diet log and if so, what do you use? (I just ran across Fitbook and found it interesting. I might try to get one for me and the Junior one for my daughter that wants/needs to lose some weight. I think she would enjoy doing that with me.)

  2. I started training for a half marathon and so the training program recommends working out 6 out of 7 days a week, 3 of them with the training group and 3 on your own. Yowsa! I've started with just the 3 team workouts and knowing they are every Monday, Wednesday and Saturday has helped me with my goal to be consistent.
    I've read that putting them in your planner like any other appointment can help. And knowing I'm going to share it on my blog has helped too.
    Yup, I pretty much need to write it all down.


  3. Half marathon.. nice! I'm still working toward a 5K. lol I hate that my schedule changes from week to week because I can't plan workout days like that. I can't attend the same classes at the gym every week. Oh well.. guess I gotta figure a way that works for me.


Leave me some flaxy love!
