Whole30: Day 4

I kinda want to kill everyone.  No, I won't really commit murder, but it seems like little things are setting me off.  

The Huz left a mess in the kitchen and I nearly lost my mind.  I had to walk away to stop myself from yelling mean words.  I've been cleaning the kitchen and doing the dishes every day for months, and it wasn't a big deal.  Today, it bothered me.  

Also, the kids are fighting about stupid things.  Their yelling at each other is making me stress out.

And, I'm starting to have some cravings.  This morning I wanted a slice of toast so badly I put one in the toaster, but then when it popped up I gave it to Gannon to eat instead.  It was almost too easy to slip.  I didn't and I'm grateful, but I'm surprised at how my body suddenly wanted something it hasn't had in months.  I don't usually eat toast anyway!

I think it's just my brain's way of saying, "GIVE ME BACK THOSE HAPPY FOODS!"

I'll get through this.  And hopefully I won't have to sacrifice a family member to do it!

Breakfast was eggs again, lunch I had a salad with some chicken, and for dinner we had chicken fajita over mixed greens.  I also went for a 9-mile bike ride before dinner.  It was tough the last 4 miles but I survived.  Now I'm tired enough to go to bed.  I hope tomorrow brings me some much needed energy!

My Least Favorite Exercises....(But They Work!)

I've been working out consistently again.  This week I've hit the gym four days and I committed to five.  Tomorrow's Total Body session at Forever Fit will meet that goal.

Yesterday was Leg Day and we did so many squats and lunges that my body is still aching today.  I'm loving the burn, baby!

As I was thinking about ways to amp up my workout routines, I started a running list in my head of my least favorite exercises.  I always cringe when I have to do these, but the truth is, they work.  
Wall sit Stand with your back against a wall and bend your knees to about a 90-degree angle. Hold this stance, with abs tight, for up to a minute. Repeat.  Want more of a challenge?  Hold a medicine ball in your lap while you "sit." (Or, hold a glass of wine in each hand. Kidding.  Maybe.)
Triceps Dips Start by sitting on a sturdy chair. Slide off the edge of the seat and support your weight with your hands. Bend your elbows to slowly lower your body toward the floor and the…

Favorite Things: Planners and More

For the last four days, I've had no idea what day it is.  This always happens to me when Christmas is in the middle of the week.  Thursday felt like Monday, today feels like Sunday.  I'm all screwed up.  More than usual. Ha.

I did look at the calendar today and it hit me that New Year's Eve is three days away.  I love this time of year.  My favorite part of a new year is getting a fresh start on everything.  And because I'm a total geek, I get super excited about buying a new planner and writing all of the things in it.  It's just so much fun for me!  There's something about those crisp, new, blank pages that thrills me.  
Yes, I know I need to get a life.
This year I've added a new planner into my rotation of things to help me stay organized.  Y'all know I love the Commit30 planners and I sing their praises, but I recently discovered Habit Nest and fell in love!
Over the last year, I was very consistent in waking up at 5 a.m., heading to the gym and ge…
