Vanessa's November Journal
59
Wed, 11-02-2011 - 3:48pm

October was decent enough for me with getting back in to exercising - it was my food that sucked big time. I'm going to use November to try to refocus on my food while Jamie is gone. He'll be gone most of the month besides Thanksgiving weekend so I may experiment around with trying to cook quick, healthy meals we can boh eat and enjoy when he's back.

Other than that my November goal will be to continue to exercise consistently, to track food and to get out of the 150's! I'm still at 151.5. Yuck!

Tuesday, Nov 1

B - Bagel thin w/ laughing cow cheese, fat free chobani greek yogurt w/ 1/2 banana, coffee w/ creamer, Splenda
S - pistachios
L - baked chicken thigh, green beans, light string cheese
D - Black bean burger w/ salsa on sandwich thin, couscous, mixed veggies
S - 3 fun pack m&m's, 1/2 serving Pringles

GOAL:
1200-1550 calories, 32-56 fat, 163-236 carb, 60-127 protein, 25-35 fiber

ACTUAL:
Mon: 1,528 cal, 57 fat, 200 carb, 69 pro, 23 fiber
Tue: 1,458 cal, 50 fat, 195 carb, 79 pro, 27 fiber

Water:
Mon - 48 oz
Tue -

I LOVE the 5k a month plan..and that Jamie is so supportive!
Running in the cold isn't that bad! You warm up quick ; ) If it's really cold, a long sleeve technical t with a sweatshirt, usually does it.

Well ladies - I definitely let myself slide the past week plus. My last day of journaling was 11/17 and that may have been the last day I even got in any exercise :-(

Time to pick myself yp and get it back together though. Of course not today - last night was a rough night. I didn't sleep well so I didn't pack up my food or gym bag this morning for today. Tonight I will get back on track and be ready for tomorrow!

I didn't sleep well either and I'm dragging like no other today so I understand! This Monday is rough!

Is Jamie back or was he just home for the holiday?

He was just back for the holiday. He should be back this weekend or early next week. Then we go to Atlantic City next weekend for his birthday and he flies out again to Los Angeles, comes back for a couple of days and flies back out to Florida. Then he'll be back for Christmas and New Years and 2012 he should be back to a semi-normal schedule except for that darn looming next deployment in December 2012 :-(

Miranda - I re-planned my workouts on my calendar again. Me and Jillian are reuniting starting tomorrow, my gym bag is packed and next to my desk right now and after the 1st of the year I'm finally going to open that P90X box and get cracking with those workouts! I can't believe Jamie bought that for me before his lasy deployment in February and I have yet to open it or look at it :-(

Well things have been pretty hectic - sometimes you just have to do what you can do, and if you can't stick to your schedule, just make sure you fit in as much as you can when you can!

That sounds like a bit of a roller coaster schedule until the new year for you guys! How are the kids adjusting to having Jamie around, then not around? Are you guys still seeing the counsellor?

What I'm hoping for you is that as things settle down, everything smoothes out for 2012 - it has been a pretty hectic year for you all!!

I'm so grateful that he will be back for the holidays at least! There has been mention that the deployments in 2012 will be shorter - I sure do hope so!!
