Week 9: For real this time

With the hope of dealing with my headaches on the horizon, I was able to focus again on the other aspects of my health. Which I did, rather successfully, if I do say so myself.

I had a good blend of meal plan recipes and other non-diet food, but I still did pretty well overall with my calories every day in MyFitnessPal. Thurs can, once again, be attributed to cookie cake. I will never be sorry about that.

I also got (almost) all of my workouts out. I still need to squeeze in arms/abs/core day today, but I’ll count it as a win. I even took Darius out for a good long walk on Friday morning. It was a little over 2 miles and I even ran for about 3/4-mile. I haven’t felt able to do that in a long time. So that’s exciting.

Another testament to my growing physical fitness is that I was able to pick up and haul both boys upstairs at the same time when they were being holy terrors last night. They are about 45lbs. Each. So 90lbs getting carried upstairs against their will. And my heart didn’t feel like exploding afterwards. Yay!

All of this while working every day this week — not always full days, but I don’t really ever spend 6 days of the week at work. It’s another busy week coming, but (hopefully) not as busy. So I’m staying positive that I can keep up the motivation.

And maybe this week I will take Princess Crazy Pants (a.k.a. Lucy) for a walk. It seems only fair.
