Monday Madness

Another weekend bites the dust. And all I can say is HOLY COW!    Holy cow my weekends are non stop busy now-a-days.  My weekends are also non-stop activity.  Maybe not exercise but manual labor.  Yesterday was 3 hours of push mowing which was preceeded by taking EVERYTHING (ok ok ok, other than the freezers and the weight machine) out of the porch, scrubbing it down, adding shelving and other organizing methods and then reloading.  We had an old treadmill, exercise bike and nordic track on the porch too.  Yes, none of them were worth anything so they were sitting piled in a corner (because maybe todd could have refurbished them....that was his plan anyway).    So exhaustion is the word that comes to my mind today, this bright Monday morning.  And sadly, I have to go to work to rest up!!!!

My biggest issue this morning though is the fact that my back is out of whack. No where near as bad as it has been in the past (Thank God).    I have plans to go to the gym tonight with a friend.  We shall see how that goes.  :-)

My eating yesterday was a little off..but considering that I started at 7AM and worked HARD until 4:45 PM with only a 20 minute break for lunch...I'm not going to worry about it!

 I have my food planned for today.  My biggest thing I'm going to focus on this week is limiting my carbs.  I'm not worried about the carbs that occur naturally in fruits....I'm talking about the biggie..breads and pastas.   Ohhh how I love my breads and pastas.   While I limited them last week I'm going to really knuckle down this week and see what happens.

Lordie - Do take care of your back!!! I'm about 15-20 years old than you I think and back issues can be misery.

I find that I feel much better when I really limit the carbs. Good luck!

lol... I got exhausted just reading about your weekend! Isn't it great, however, when you can step back and admire everything you've accomplished! :-)

I laughed that you said you are going to work to rest up. I will be doing manual labor this weekend and will be heading to work to rest up too!

I wish you all the best, remember even small changes add up.

I second what Desiree said. This all sounds exhausting. Sounds like you've earned a rest!

Good luck with the limited carbs! I love breads too, but I started really slowly and I don't miss them at all right now. (who's to say how I will feel in the future though)
