3 for 3 :)

I'm lovin the new gym. I can go whenever I want. I went very very early Sat morning... as in 1 am. I didn't work Friday night so it gave me something better to do besides sit on the couch watching tv and eating. I went Sunday morning after work. I went this morning after work and I went back when Joe went around 11:30 ish.

So far total time on the treadmill 2 hours and 45 min. I also lifted weights Sat and today.

I'm not going to weigh myself too often. It just depresses me. I eat all the good stuff I'm supposed to eat. I kick ass in the gym and every time I get on the d*mn thing it hasn't moved as much as I think it should. So I'm not even gonna go there.

Checkin In

Trying to settle into a routine. I switched to 3rd shift starting Sunday. It's going to take a while to readjust. Tonight I'm off and after everyone goes to bed I'm going to the gym. I also need to do laundry, make tea and cut up fruit so we can have something good to nibble on that's good for us. I went to the grocery store after work this morning and I went over budget. But I needed to stock up on a lot of things.
It's been cooler here and that puts me in the mood to bake. I have the stuff to make cookies and bread. I may get to work on that after I get back from the gym if I think I won't wake the whole house. Cookies won't last long enough to tempt me with the way my boys eat. The grown boy especially. LOL

I've been doing better with mindless eating because of stress and boredom. And I think it's because instead of worrying about my finances, I now have a solid plan to get my debt paid and save for the goals I have set for myself. I know everything will not go as smoothly as I would hope and things will happen to throw me off track. But I know that everything I want to accomplish will get done because I have an awesome support partner.

Starting anew

How many times in life are you allowed a do over?

Well I said before I moved about 2 months ago and I looked for a gym to join. I found one that's close enough and I can access it 24/7. Membership fees aren't bad either. For my boyfriend and I it's $50 a month. Totally worth it to not have to battle humidity combined with 90 + temps now and 2 or 3 ft of snow later.

Today so far I had a big fruit smoothie with a peach, banana, and light V8 fusion... Yum :)
For lunch I have tilapia and spaghetti squash planned. I've never had spaghetti squash so I hope it's good.

My plan is to go heavy on fish, fruits and veggies. I want to try new foods, quinoa is one of them. I want to get myself to the gym at least 5 days a week.

My biggest motivation is that I want to be ready to get pregnant a year from now. If I'm at a healthy weight and living a healthy lifestyle then there will be less of a risk for complications and I will have a healthy baby :)
