Its hot in here

Hello out there.  I hope everyone is having a great weekend. Mine is not too terribly bad.  I took my 4 year old to San Antonio on Friday night, came home yesterday, now I am just hanging out.

I got the sudden urge to run last night, so I went out at 9pm.  Yeah, that was short lived.  It was 102 outside. Um, no thanks.  Thats about like me running in place in a sauna. Not my cup of tea.  I think I need to move somewhere that has temps of 70 year round.  Who's with me?

I got in a brief boxing session.  I need some new gloves or something because my hands get jacked up.  I am not really worried about it, it doesnt hurt. Just isnt very pretty.  I cut the workout short because I had a headache and every time I hit the bag, my head would get a stabbing pain running through it.  No bueno.

I dont know what I am going to get into today.  I know an emergency session to the salon is in store.  I will tell you about that one later:)

Hope everyone has a fantastic Memorial Day weekend.

I'm so hungry I could eat a....

Hello!  How's everyones week going?  Mine is fantastic
Hit the gym yesterday and today. A much as I DID NOT want to go, I sucked it up, and went.  I feel so much better afterwards.

This week I have been so incredibly hungry. I eat and its like I dont get full. My tummy still feels empty. I have no idea whats going on with that. Its pretty miserable. I know its miserable walking around with a full belly, but walking around with a belly that feels like it hasnt eaten in days is just as bad. Anyone else experience this?

Speaking of eating, I am sitting here chowing down as I type this.  I made some chili last night---93% lean ground beef, kidney beans, tomatoes, onions, jalapenos, and seasoning.  Last night I ate it over brown rice; today its just the chili.  Its really good. Tonight I am eating crock pot chicken with broccoli, carrots, new red potatoes. OMG, yes I am eating carbs from carrots and potatoes. Shame on me:)  Its better than ice cream. (Ok, it may not taste better, but you know what I mean)

I am off for session #2 at the gym today.  I am going to DC next week . Need to get some workouts in this week because this weekend I am busy packing.

Kitchen Pass

Hellooooooooooooooooooooo!!!! I am back to blogger from squarespace.  Hopefully this time I will keep up the blog....

So when you hear kitchen pass, what do you think of?  I think of a wife letting her hubby go out with the boys. I am sure there are limitations, but the hubby can go out and do whatever he wants.  Well the kitchen pass I am referencing is very similar, but I mean a literal KITCHEN that lets you do whatever you the kitchen.

There are SO many times in our lives we use an event as an excuse to eat whatever we want. Perhaps its a pregnancy, or theres an occasion coming up like a family dinner or Christmas, etc.  Its amazing though how one excuse can turn into 10 more. "Well, I AM eating for two" "I already cheated once this week, I will get back on track on Sunday" "I already blew my diet so I will just eat whatever today." Sound familiar?

I am just as guilty as anyone with falling off the wagon.  But the key is to not let excuses consume you.  If you have a bad eating day, nip it in the bud there and do better tomorrow, dont blow it all because of one day. Dont wait for the start of a new week to happen because a lot of damage can happen between now and then.  And hey, you can even stop it before it starts. Just because your nieces cousins sisters boyfriend is having a get together, it doesnt mean you cant bring your own food, you cant make better choices, or hey, you cant skip it all together.  Be the adult.  Whats more important, pigging out with the fam or looking good in a bikini?

Think about these things. Dont give yourself a kitchen pass all the time.  YOU are in control of your life, your body.  You define YOU.
