Another weekend gone!

I guess when I really think about it, time is going fast, but not quite fast enough.
I did ok on the eating front this weekend even though I was stressed and unhappy for most of the time. I feel bad sometimes that Arianna is stuck with me, but I'm doing the best that I can right now.

I got a bit of a meal plan jotted down for the week, and hopefully next week I will introduce some new recipes so that I'm not getting bored.
Tomorrow is a scheduled run day, so hopefully I will find the motivation to do that. I am doing a 5 min warm up and running 1 minute walking 1 minute, and then cool down. Last week I did 6 run/walk intervals, and this week I am hoping to increase to either 10 intervals or 1 min 30 seconds running. I'm not sure yet.

I'm thinking of heading to a play group tomorrow just to get out. I think I just need to be around people to feel human again, but for some reason I just feel like avoiding people even more. I need to stop that. There are a few people that want me to call, so I am putting it out there that I am going to start calling people and going out to preserve my sanity.

sorry for the downer post, tomorrow will be a better day.

Olympic Give away

Jaime is having another awesome give away. The much coveted olympic mittens, head over to her blog and check them out!!

Today is officially half way until DH comes home! Some days I wonder if I can make it, but I know it's just a little over 3 months.

Eating has been going good, and I am exercising as much as possible. today's exercise was all about shoveling. We got some snow overnight, so I bundled up A and we went out to start the driveway. I got about half done and then it was time to go in and get warmed up. I finished the other half after A went to bed, and of course the plow had dumped more heavy snow in the bottom of the driveway so my arms may be a little sore tomorrow.

I am scheduled to run tomorrow, as I am taking another shot at learning to run. I am working on running every second day but it has to be at nap or bed time so sometimes motivation is sorely lacking.

I am having a hard time getting organized enough to make up weekly meal plans, but I know that once I do that it will be great for my weight loss and my wallet.

I am thinking about a "no spend" challenge for February. I was reading about it on a yummy mummy blog. I will still spend money on fresh foods and milk etc. but I will not spend any extras. I seem to be coping with stress and boredom by spending, and we really don't have the money or the space for any more stuff!

Well, it's friday at 8:50 pm and I am seriously considering going to bed. I am cold, tired and lonely. I find the weekends the worst!
