Jan 8 - Day 3

Tuesday, January 08, 2013

Weight: 167.4 (.2 lb less than yesterday)
Energy level: high
Mood: great!

I did sign up at a gym - planet fitness, actually. $10/month, and lots of perks. So yesterday I ran 2 miles, walked .4 miles, did some weight machines, sit ups, stretches, 2 minutes on the stair stepper and 10 minutes on the bike. It was great! I had a really good time, and I'm looking forward to my next visit. I also got pizza on my way out... for free... from my favorite pizza place... mmm :)

Today I have to leave the house about 8:20 and I won't get home till maybe 6 or 6:30. Long day, hopefully I can keep it healthy!

    Congratulations on your new SparkPeople journey. Sounds like you are starting out with a bang at the gym. Not so sure about the pizza but hopefully it was full of veggies and less cheese. Good luck on those busy days. They are always a challenge. Pack your own lunch and snacks if you can and be strong when it comes to ordering out.

Jan 7 - Day 2

Monday, January 07, 2013

Weight: 167.6 (.6 lb less than yesterday)
Energy level: medium
Mood: bland/determined

My 10 month old puppy doesn't let me sleep too well anymore, so I'm waking up weird-tired. Just fuzzy-brained. I'm trying to implement methods to keep her quiet: always take her out before bed, and don't give her attention or food when she wakes me up at night.

Yesterday I did pretty well with my eating. I had a lot of melon. I also discussed my food addiction with a friend, and she gave me some nice practical tips for food portioning. I may ask one of my pastors to pray with me about it. It would be so great to conquer this!

I looked online at gyms close to me, and I found 2 that might work. My assignment for this afternoon is to go check them out.


Jan 6 - Day 1

Sunday, January 06, 2013

Weight: 168.2 (1 lb higher than yesterday; 2.2 lbs higher than goal)
Energy level: medium/medium-high
Mood: mildly positive

I'm listening to a missed class assignment, waiting for time to pass before we go to church. My hubby is going to want to go to Subway for lunch but I really don't want it :( I might skip today, but he would be disappointed. I have friend from school coming to join me in doing some homework.

Yesterday I overate a little. I really want to eat and feel healthy, but I get wrapped up in cravings and hunger. We have been doing better because we're eating at home more now. I also got some much-needed sports bras. It will be nice to have more than one :)

Today, I think I'll skip breakfast. I am trying to start listening to my body, but I don't usually do well. It would be nice to eat when I'm hungry. Not too long before or after.

I need to set some attainable goals.

Sunday: For today, I don't think I'll get to work out. I can eat fruit and salad for lunch. I could even cook up some salmon to go with it! :) Make butternut squash soup. It will be good if I can remember to drink tea and take healthy snacks to eat at class tonight. Peanut butter graham crackers, fruit, cucumber.

Monday: Work 9-12. Find a gym near-by so I can run this winter; sign up, run 4 miles.

Tuesday: I work all day. Pack a healthy, really large lunch because I'll be gone a long time and I always have a large appetite on Tuesdays :) Bible study after work.

Wednesday: No work scheduled, I need to call KC. Laundry & dog park. It would be nice to do a workout in the morning: weights, stretches, maybe elliptical and bike.

Thursday: Breakfast out with AS. We'll leave at 8:15, probably get back about 11:45. Healthy lunch, then work from 1-4:30.

Friday: Work 9-4. Pack healthy lunch.

Saturday: Workout, Dog park.
