Keep it moving

It gets a little better everyday, or so I try to tell myself.

As I try to finish up the little bits of leftovers I have around my house I decided that breakfast would have to have a little pumpkin in it.  I had a sample of Coach’s Oats to use… so with that I made my first ever pumpkin oatmeal.  I tossed in a few glazed walnuts and a little pumpkin pie spice.  It was quite good, quite filling, and quite what I needed to start off my day.

I may have added a little spoonful of homemade whip cream... that I want to use up of course.

After dropping Justine off at school I did a much better job of going to Curves and actually working out.  I got a pretty good work out in for a little over 30 mins.  I’ll be adding in my treadmill runs, and my 30 day Shred, but thought I would add them back in slowly and not feel like I have to do everything all at once.

I’ve been on a mission to keep myself moving.  I could easily get lost in the corner of my couch with my blanket, pillow, and remote so I can access all my dvr recordings, but of course, I can’t do that.  I still have a home to take care of, a daughter to love, and I still have to live.  So I managed to do a few things like straighten up the living room getting it ready for the Christmas tree.  I did some laundry, and cooked some dinner, dishes soon followed.

For lunch I had a third of this yummy, but easy frozen California BBq Chicken Pizza.

You can't go wrong with pizza

There have been a few times that I have broken down and cried through out the day.  Not for any particular reason, just because I’m hurting.  I wish there was a magic wand that i could wave that would take all this pain away. But I know there’s no magic wand, there’s really no magic pill, there’s me.  I have to dig myself out of this dark place and back into the light.  I’m sure I’ll learn so much about myself throughout this time, and I’m sure I’ll come out so much stronger than before.

I did make myself some dinner before I had to head into work.  I might not be making the most creative things, or even the healthiest, but it’s a start.

I had these Gorton’s frozen shrimp

These shrimps are pretty good and easy to prepare. Throw them in a little oil and saute them for about 12 minutes.

I roasted some acorn squash, and heated up some Uncle Ben’s Cajun rice and my meal was set.

A perfect dinner. I ❤ you acorn squash!

For a little somethin to munch on while I was at work I brought some plain greek yogurt, blueberries, a little coconut, white choco chips, and almond slivers.  That is one of my favorite snacks right now.  It has so many flavor combinations.

And for dessert…. two of Mama Pea’s Peanut butter cookie dough balls.

Who can be sad when they have two of these babies for dessert.

I’m looking forward to my two days off… even though it’s Tuesday, it’s my Friday.  Woot woot!

And can I just tell you… the goods are starting to be dropped off in our office our ready.  As everyone was chomping down on chocolate chip cookies, I passed knowing I had better cookies for later.  A year ago I would have probably had a few of these cookies, and a few of those cookies…. that’s something to be proud of right?

    Jen always says One bite at a time, which became one Breath at a Time when she ran her big race… but Never forget it all comes down to One Decision at a time, because we can only have things one day at a time.
    You are making some really awesome choices and great progress and you need to keep celebrating those victories! Do a little dance, pat yourself on the back, and cheer yourself on. You can get through anything that gets thrown at you, you are strong and you are changing, Change is tough! but you are tougher! Keep up the good work babes! You can do it!

      I need to remember that… one breath at a time.
      Sometimes it feels suffocating, and I just need to remember to breath and take one thing at a time.
      Thanks for reminding me and the encouragement.

    I hope you feel better soon! And I am sure you will, because you are taking care of yourself with healthier cookies and exercise. There is a lot in there to be proud of.

    Absolutely celebrate all the victories – big and small. Passing up on the office cookies is a big deal & I agree about Mama P’s cookies probably being better (taste & healthwise). 😉

    Hang in there. Sounds like you’re doing a little better. I hope things continue down the recovery path.
