Sunday, Sunday, Sunday!!!

So today turned out to be another good core food day. And guess what? I tried something new today. We had steak tonight and I always buy DH a sweet potato when we have steak and I usually have a regular potato. The other day I bought 2 sweet potatoes. Mine was very small as I was VERY hesitant to try it. DH cooked them and oh my gosh, it was AWESOME!!! I sprinkled some ICBINB on it with a tad bit of brown sugar splenda. Oh mouth watered!! It was so good. So I will be having that again!

TOM showed today and my emotions have been all over the place. I don't know why, but man it sucks. One minute I am fine and the next I am pissed off at the world. At least this month I am not crying at the drop of a hat. When I do eventually get pregnant, I will be glad to be rid of this nice monthly friend (notice the sarcastic tone here?) for at least 9 months hopefully longer. :)

I have a very proud moment to share from today. I worked until around 2:45 and then had to put DS down for a nap. We rocked for a while (yes, he is 3 and we still rock and I LOVE it!) then he wanted me to lay down with him. Well, I fell asleep. I didn't sleep very long...20 minutes at the most. Then I got up and went to my bed. All the while fighting my inner voice saying "You said you were going to go to the gym once DS went to sleep. No, I'll walk here later on. No you won't, get to the gym before it closes and get that work out in!" So, I jumped out of my bed at 3:15 and hauled a$$ downstairs, threw on my shoes, grabbed my water and my iPod and out the door I went. You see, the gym closes at 4 on Sundays, so I knew I had to get there by 3:30 at the ABSOLUTE latest so I could get in 30 minutes on the elliptical. And I did it!!! I had to cut it short by 3 minutes so instead of the normal 33 minutes, I got in 30, but I still did it! And I am glad I did. I hate the action of GOING to the gym. Once I am there, I am fine. This is another reason I am jonesing DH for an elliptical in the basement, so we'll see....

Here is how today shaped up:

B--cream of wheat made with milk, watermelon
L--tuna salad on Wasa crackers (2) and triscuits (3); can of pineapple in own juice
S--WW Smoothie--pretty good, but I make one at home that's better
D--T-bone steak, sweet potato, corn on the cob, tabloh (sp??) salad
30 minutes on the elliptical so 3 APs earned. 2 WPA used; 6 fruits and veggie servings and 110 ounces of water

I still have 5 WPA left. YAY!!! I will go to the gym one more time this WW week and that will be tomorrow. Then I will have 5 days in of workouts this week AND core AND lots of fruits/veggies and water. That scale better be nice to me this week!!! :)

I'm off to bed. Have a great Monday (and what's left of Sunday's 10 p.m. here)!!

I agree the worst part about the gym is getting there! I love having the tradmills right in the basement!

I'm with you guys--my gym is clear across town. I give myself that internal dialogue too. I made it there Saturday but not Sunday.
