Frustration and Motivation

I have tried to post my monthly “The Good the Bad and the Ugly” three times and each time I hit publish it get lost in the Internet world.  I will try again tomorrow but I am kind of done with the whole thing (so frustrating).

We have been busy.  Megan and Tyler both had games this weekend.  Shawn worked all weekend but he was able to split the game duties because they were at the same time (of course!). The both played their little hearts out and I was so proud of them.  It is amazing how much they have improved since last spring.

This morning I was so tired that all I wanted to do was stay under the covers and get an extra few minutes of rest.  After hitting the snooze button three times I got myself up and made it to the gym for a 45 minute sweat session.  I tried the Elliptical Trainer today and it was super hard and I was very sweaty by the end.  When I looked at the calorie count I was surprised to see that I had burned almost double the calories that I do on the treadmill.  I do not count exercise into my daily calorie goal, but it is nice to see it pop up on the MyFitnessPal app.

I spend so much time thinking about food, calculating food, and making sure I eat the right amount of food that it has somewhat taken over my life.  I know this is a season and I am in the midst of major weight loss so I am fine with it, but, man, it is intense. I bought a different kind of Glucerna Shakes at the store (they were on sale) and they taste DISGUSTING!!!  It has totally thrown me off my game.  On one hand I feel like I need t just suck it up and drink them (they are expensive!) but on the other hand I am not sure if I can stomach them.  I hate when things like this happen because I am so cheap and now I refuse to waste these things.

On a better note, I discovered Justin’s Almond Butter in small serving packets and they have somewhat changed my life. I am sure I am behind the game on this as I feel like the rest of the world knows this…but if you have been under a rock (like I have) go out and get some.


The Maple and Vanilla are especially awesome

I think that’s all for the day.  Hope your week is going well.

Has anyone tried a new exercise that you have enjoyed????
