I had a pretty relaxed weekend. I got about 5 walks in. We didn't do a whole lot like I was hoping to but we did get some cleaning done and grilled out yesterday. Saturday a couple of friends came over and they took me out for dinner. It was a lazy weekend for me. I just couldn't get with the program! These past few days it seems like I have been in zombie mode. I haven't been tired, just have been having a blah attitude. I know it's a mixture of things. I haven't been keeping up with my water jug or green tea and in a few days I should be getting my, oh so dreaded monthly visit. Speaking of my water jug, mine cracked a couple of days ago! I have yet to get another one. It took me forever to find the perfect one and I hope Wal-Mart still carries it!
I need to start kicking-butt. I have been keeping active but I really need to start my weight training/ toning again. I have been talking about lifting weights for a while now but I think it's time I actually make it a routine! I also need to buckle down again on my diet. I have been doing pretty well with keeping my daily intake to 1,200 calories but I have not been making the best food choices. A healthy lifestyle is like a fine tuned clock for me. If I don't keep up with everything I can feel my body deflating and my mood slowly goes downhill. Lately I have been feeling huge and very self-conscious. I have not been comfortable in my own skin and I know that these feelings are just a result from what I have not been doing these past couple of weeks. My Mom thinks I am crazy and that I look great but it's just the feeling I have inside. I don't feel fit. I don't feel healthy. Even though I have been staying active, I need to step it up and there is no better time to do it than the present!
P.S. - I checked up on that Robins nest and all 4 babies are hatched and are doing well!
