Hello, new day! Hello dry weather! Hello Sparkpeople!
Right, my breakfast today was leftover pad thai. Yep. In the tracker, 400 calories, and it is counting as my breakfast and morning snack so I'm OK with it. Its not the most terrible food in the world, but not something I should have more then once a month. So it is gone and eaten and I feel good about myself so far.
Lunch will be home cooked and WILL involve greens. I have corn in the fridge....Hmmm...Yes, lunch will involve corn! Dinner will, again, be home cooked and involve greens. Lets get back on track people!
Exercise today will be W3 D2 of c25K and I will attempt to get the 30 day shred in there as well. I will eat better before my run and that will hopefully help me get through my work out with energy and help keep me strong until the end.
Have a good day everyone!

Right. What would you like to hear about first? The no breakfast? The wedges and sour cream for lunch, chased down by apple juice and a brownie? Or maybe my Thai takeaways for dinner?
Yep, I had a baaaaad day. I felt like eating crap so ate it. Then felt sick.
Must not fall back into my old habits, must not fall back into my old habits...
In other news, I decided to do some squats yesterday. Sitting today was akward...No bending, more like falling with some control and grace. Yep, its been a fantabulous day.
Oh, and to top it all off, the lecturer gave us a sheet to help us do our assignments. GREAT! Except they were due an hour before class started. Can you say pointless? And I think I f%&*ed it up.
Sorry all, bad day, blog vent

I didn't exercise over the weekend. I know, I know. Here are my excuses:
Saturday: Lazy in the morning. Pants shopping left me upset. I should have taken my feelings out on a massive hill or something, but I didn't. I got a m&m trumpet (ice cream) and went back to bed. I did, however, have an awesome dinner. Seafood stonegrill with 2 thin pieces of bread and a salad. Seafood cooked by me on a hot stone with no oils or fat, the only seasoning was salt and pepper. Delish!
Sunday: Woke up late. Went to work. Had to drive my parents to the airport so missed my water jogging date. Was lazy.
So that was my weekend.
I have decided to repeat week 3 of my running plan. I only got in 2 runs last week and only one counted because of the shin pain, so I'm gonna repeat. I should still be ready for a 5k at the end of October, I may just have to do a bit more walking then I originally planned. All good, I can handle it.
Tracking is getting better, it just takes soooo much time. Often things I eat aren't on the tracker so I need to enter them in. We'll get there. I'm thinking about tracking every second day as a comprimise.
My weight this morning was 82.1. Down a pound from last weigh in but since I have been bouncing around from 82-82.5 lately I'm only sorta excited.
Right, so we are all caught up? Great!
In other news, my group 'Lose 16lb by the holidays' 'met' on zoho today. It was nice getting to chat to people from here. I wish Spark had a live chat feature, that would be fun!

I needed new pants. Badly, since ALL my other pants had holes in them. Off I went to the store. I grabbed the first pair of jeans and black pants I saw in my size, since I'm not fussy, if it fits I'll wear it. They were both size 14. I'm a 14.
Neither pair of pants would fit above my knees. I couldn't belive it. All this hard work, all this working out and eating right and saying no to cake and I get rewarded by being a size bigger then when I started? F&*% you pants!
I threw my toys. Majorly. But I needed new pants so I went to another store with more selection. I took a deep breath and got 2 styles of black pants and 2 styles of jeans, both styles in a 14 and a 16. The 16s fit like a glove. I broke down, right there in the changing room. I cried and cried. How could I have worked this hard to fit a bigger size? Why, why, why.
I tried on my last pair of jeans. The 16 was too big. Finally! The 14 fit like a glove. Thank mars bars for that. I calmed slightly. The style name of the jeans? The Spark Jeans.
Now, I know realistically I haven't gotten bigger. Sizes suck and they aren't standard and all the rest of it. But it still hurts to be a 16 when even at my heaviest I was a 14 EVERYWHERE. So my weight won't go down and my pants size has gone up. I'm starting to wonder why I'm bothering. I want ice cream and chocolate and a family sized pavlova with whipped cream.
