Excuses.... Excuses....

I'm having one of those mornings.

I got a massage yesterday.  And not a gentle massage.  I got a pound you against a rock to loosen yo up massage.  it was great!  I can turn my head now and everything!  But man, I feel like I've been beaten!  Ow...

So I ended up oversleeping.  That meant no workout this morning.

Then I ran downstairs to make breakfast and found:

1.) A VERY stinky trash can.   I had raw chicken in there and the Spousal Equivalent was supposed to take the trash out.  He didn't.  So Misty and I did.

2.) Dirty dishes piled everywhere.  I cooked quite the meal yesterday.  And the dishes were my fault.  Since I couldn't make breakfast until I moved them, I decided to just load the dishwasher.

All in all I wasn't too terribly late.

And the good news is that I'm going to the chiropractor today, to take advantage of the fact that I can move my head from side to side!

But in all of this, I did manage to see the Dr. Strange trailer.

I think tonight is going to be leftovers, and some yoga.  (I skipped this morning's workout.  I need to make sure not to slack!)

I hope everyone else ins't having "one of those days."

My April 3 Es

"E" #1 -  eating

I kicked my own butt last week to get back on the Weight Watchers/ BeachBody container system eating wagon.  What does this mean?

  • Planning- especially since we're oven-less, I have to make sure I have stove top friendly, plan friendly meals.  I also need to spend some money and get plan friendly snacks to keep on hand.  Also, I need to make sure I'm eating all of my containers, so I have a well balanced diet.
  • Portioning- I need to measure and portion everything that I eat.  Seriously.  I have the containers, I need to use them.
  • Journaling-  I've got the planner to write this stuff down.  I just need to do it!

"E" #2- exercise

I'm currently working on a ChaLean Extreme/ TurboFire calendar.  I have what I need to do.  I just need to DO it!  Never miss a Monday... And all.

Also, I'm ready to start running again.  I'm going to make sure I get a good weekend run in.  Today it's running, so not today...

"E" #3 - environment

We're getting a new couch later on this month, so I've started cleaning.  But I need to do more.  I need to "weed" out my possessions, getting rid of things that I don't use.  I need to work on the outsides of our place, weeding the front and making the back a place that we might use (maybe this year we'll buy the screen door?). I need to keep up with cleaning.  I need to take everything off the shelves in the storage room and consolidate.

When my environment is orderly, the rest of it seems easier..

So that's my plan.

What is yours?
