So, yesterday I decided to weigh in early to see where I was at for the week. Much to my surprise it was down a pound so I figured I'd go ahead and record it. I shouldn't do this, I know. I weighed again this morning.... now I'm up 5. I KNOW weight fluctuates all the time but seriously?! that 5 lb fluctuation crap is for the birds! That's a lot. I need to just stick to weighing in ONLY on Friday's. I keeping thinking my scale is messed up, and that I'm doing horrible. I know I'm not, because I can definitely see changes when I look in the mirror. Normally it doesn't bother me to weigh in early just to check, but when the scale jumps that much it does. Ugh! I'm really hoping that Friday I can still claim the pound lost from yesterday, but we shall see. If not, I'll change it.
Anyways, I already have a walk planned for the day which is good considering I drank some Starbucks coffee this morning, and while it was delicious... the calories aren't so much! Lol.
I really, really need to get my butt on the elliptical tonight at least for 20 minutes or so. I'm still REALLY thinking about taking my couch to storage. Lol! Not even kidding. : )
Hope everyone is having a great day!!

I didn't do Jillian Michael's 30 day shred last night, but I did finally go see The Lucky One. Wonderful movie, and I highly recommend it. Now of course I want to read the book. I love Nicholas Sparks. : )
Even though I have the day off, I decided to come into my first job for four hours since a co-worker was coming in. I wanted some extra hours since my speeding ticket is due Friday. Lol!
It is SUCH a beautiful day, so I'm going to walk around the entire canal after I get off work. I need the fitness minutes! I want the scale to change in a good way on Friday.

It's not often I include fitness in my daily routine, and so when I do... I'd like to be able to track it. I'm not a technology person, but I can use a computer. I have looked all over the internet for a map of the park I walked yesterday. I have found NUMEROUS maps, and yet I can't figure out for the life of me how to "track my walk" to include it on Sparkpeople. I usually always use Sparkpeoples map my walk thing, but the paths aren't clear to be able to track it. I know in my mind exactly where, and what path I walked, in fact I could walk it again tomorrow, but none of the paths are clear on the maps I'm viewing because of the trees. I don't have a pedometer, or anything that I would be able to say I walked exactly this far and for this amout of time, so I can't even track it on Spark that way. All I can do is estimate. It's frustrating to me that I have earned some fitness minutes, and have no clue how to track it. This should only make me want to workout more this week to make up for the fact that I can't track, but I'm stuck on the fact that I can't track THIS particular walk. I spent time with my friend Jennifer yesterday, and she hasn't ever been so we drove around the park for a little bit yeterday so she could see where everything is. They have a huge lake to go swimming with a little beach, and we are thinking about going sometime this summer. Then we decided to pull off by another smaller lake, and go for a little walk, which turned into a much bigger walk. Times like this don't feel like workouts to me because I feel like I'm just enjoying what nature has to offer. Of course then if I get hot I find any body of water, and get my feet wet to cool off. Normally I walk in flip flops, because my feet HATE shoes! Lol. I know it's probably not normal to walk long distances in flip flops... but no one said I was normal. Haha, and I'm okay with that. I just wish I could track it is all. Oh well!
Sunday before the walk I went driving with my dad. We ended up in the park in Noblesville that has train rides for $5.00. It was a lot of fun. Doesn't take you very far, but it was something to do.
I just need to track my calories from the weekend and I'll be good to go for this week, and weigh in on Friday.

This may not seem like a big deal to anyone... but it is for me! I don't know how many times I have talked about the unhealthy food options on Saturdays at the dealership, so I try to not really worry too much on Saturdays. Simply because it's ONE day, and I normally don't want to take the time to pack a lunch. At one time I brought my lunch in case it was something I wasn't willing to sacrifice calories for, but I haven't lately. Most the time we get pizza because it's easy and it can feed a lot of people for cheap. Normally I would eat two or three pieces of pizza that was loaded with sausage and pepperoni. It's not been until recently that I have been mindful of what kind of pizza it is. Only choosing plain cheese if they order it, or veggie in the thicker crust. They have noticed that a lot of people are watching what they are eating and today they ordered a thin n crispy veggie, among others. Yay!! My dream come true. Normally I'd eat the thin n crispy cheese, or just splurge and eat whatever. So it's definitely a successful, proud moment for me today. Sorry to brag!
I'm going out to the bar with some friends tonight, so I plan on working out before I do. I don't want to stay out long, so I may only have a beer or two. No more than two! After that it'll be good ole water. I'm hoping I can sneak in a walk, and some elliptical time after work this evening before I go out. : )

So, I have to thank my friend Jennifer. She got me to venture out of my shell and buy something totally out of the norm for me. I already got a compliment today from a lady in another division at work wearing the same color orange. Lol!
Needless to say, it made me feel good. I put it on this morning after loving it in the store and thought I looked like a damn construction sign or an orange barrell, and felt that big too. I didn't let it stop me though. : )
Yesterday was just awful. I ate so much I felt like I was going to puke last night as I was laying in bed. I'm paying for it today though, because the scale is off! It says I gained a pound so I'm hoping by next Friday everything works itself out. I can only make today a better day than yesterday which shouldn't be that hard to do considering the damage.
