Weekly Update

Wow! Rough week. The food poisoning lingered so it Thursday before I started working out again. I did semi-okay on eating the first few days (mainly because I was still sick), but not as well the past few. I've had major insomnia lately, because there is something in my life not quite settled and I need it to be done!!!! However, it's out of my control, so all I can do is wait and see what happens. And in the mean time, even sleeping pills aren't helping. Then I rely on sugar(which I'm not even supposed to be eating) and caffeine to get through the day.

But I did sleep some last night, so maybe it's getting better. Either way i'm cutting the caffeine and sugar out again. My husband was supposed to go on a diet with me, but we keep waiting to go find a diet book together. I remind him every weekend, but so far it hasn't happened. Tomorrow is his last chance. After that I'll do it on my own.

Recovering from Food Poisoning

Sorry I missed this weekend's post. I was recovering from food poisoning. I dropped five pounds while I had it. ;)  No idea how much I gained back once I could eat again.

Until Friday I worked out every day last week. I'd planned to pick up again on Saturday, but I got food poisoning. So that didn't happen. I'm planning to get back on the band wagon today.

Doing Better

I'm doing better! I'm probably still having more sugar than my dentist would like, but I'm not gorging on it. And I've worked out six days out of seven, sometimes more than once a day. And I managed to write about 110 pages in 8 days at the same time. I need to start tracking what I eat and drink more water. I never made it to six cups a day. But I'm taking it one week at a time, and for now that's okay. See you again next weekend.

Falling Off The Bandwagon

It's probably obvious from my lack of posts lately, even after someone nudged me and asked me how my goals were coming, but I've fallen off the bandwagon. I'm not working out regularly. My sugar addiction is winning, and I'm not drinking nearly enough water. The results are obvious in my health and energy level. I'm writing this right now, because tomorrow is a new day. I'm kicking the sugar to the curb. Again. I'm starting over. I will drink six glasses of water. I will work out for 30 minutes. And I've decided to start writing down what I eat. I will do this every day for thirty days. I can do it! But trying to do everything I've set out to do and maintain two blogs is getting overwhelming. So I've decided to blog here only once a week on Saturdays. I'm giving up the mission to find 52 sugar free/splenda free recipes, because it's virtually impossible to find recipes that use neither. And the hunt takes time,not to mention cooking time, and food photography. It's going to have to be enough to just get through the day without sugar and still manage to workout, drink water, and write.

On the positive side, while I've been working out less, I've written 60 pages in the last five days. I also got an agent last week. And I got strong enough to admit in public I fell off the band wagon, pick up the pieces and start over.
