The Day That Wasn’t

Today was a very “off” day!  I don’t know where this type of day comes from… Out of nowhere!!  There was NO reason that today should have been anything but GREAT… but for some reason, I wasn’t feeling it.  I started my morning at the store bright and early stocking up on some fresh fruits and veggies! I sincerely tried to start out on a positive note.

After taking the boys to school… I came home to this!  I really don’t know how it happened because we left through the garage…  It was extremely windy this morning, so maybe at some point the boys went out the front door to check the weather or something… not sure, but definitely an uneasy feeling coming into a house with the door wide open!

I printed a fresh calendar and “burpees chart” and posted them on my mirror.  I have to admit that I hate burpees and I’m pretty nervous about being able to complete this challenge!  But I will do my best!

I steam cleaned the carpets today and started the process of organizing my closet.  In my boy’s room, I came across a hidden stash of Halloween candy!!! Not a good thing to discover when I am lacking in will power!!!  Remember just yesterday I gave away what I thought was ALL of our Halloween candy….  I felt like a bottomless pit today.  I could not get satisfied and I went on an emotional eating binge.  I made an executive decision to get my act together and wait to go to my Weight Watchers meeting next Thursday.  I just don’t want to face the scale after the week I’ve had.  It’s amazing to me how my mood can change so drastically from day to day.  I talked to my hubby about it and I’m looking forward to getting worked on by him either tonight or tomorrow morning!  It’s been a few weeks since my last treatment.  Using Applied Kinesiology techniques, he’ll be able to figure out what is causing my self sabotage!

This was one of my better decisions of the day. It was soooo much tastier and satisfying than the candy I consumed!

When Torry got home from a long day at the office, we hit the gym together!  I did 30 minutes on the elliptical followed by a 20 minute interval work out and then 10 minutes of level 15 inclines. (And my burpees for the day!)

Do you ever have BLAH days like this?  How do you deal with them?

40 years old, "stay at home mom" to 2 boys (ages 16 and 14), wife to a chiropractic kinesiologist! I love blogging and learning new ideas. I follow the Weight Watchers Points Plus program and enjoy working out. I have run 2 full 26.2 mile marathons and 3 half marathons... and many 10k and 5k's. I love taking BodyPump classes and lifting weights. Working out has always been fun for me, but I struggle with eating healthy. Blogging has introduced me to a world of healthy eaters... When I first started WW... I just wanted someone to tell me what to eat! I didn't like cooking and I am not the kind of person that can just throw things together. There are tons of ideas out there and I love finding new and fun ones that I feel like I am capable of making myself!

    I came home to an open door one time….everything was fine and even the dog was still in the house…guess it was the wind, but it sure scares you to death! As far as your “diet” goes, thank goodness for repentance. It’s a new day today!!! tq
