Well here it is another Monday! Weigh in tonight, most likely will not be a pleasant one, but will go and face the music, and hopefully it will get my head back on straight for the upcoming week!!
I let myself down... by not logging in daily for the past couple of weeks. I can blame a work project... it kept me so busy I didn't get to Curves at lunchtime... that led to being lax in my eating, my water drinking, and my exercising!
Work however is NOT to blame... I could have taken a full lunch hour, and gone to Curves, I chose not to! I also made the choice not to drink all my water every day... I chose not to plan my meals as well as I could have... these things are all my own choices!!
I am going to weigh in tonight, and see where I stand, as I start my vacation!!
We are leaving tonight for a 12-13 hour drive... then 3 days of sun and beaches... then a long drive home again!! SO I can pack the right snacks... plenty of water... even taking my own breakfast and some lunch stuff, as we have an efficiency unit on the beach! I CAN make good choices even being on vacation... I will have my computer to log in every day... this can work!!
There will be little or no stress for the next few days... no major plans, just beaches and sunshine!!!
Today will be an "active" day, cleaning, doing laundry and packing... then cleaning the car, and packing the car... so I have no reason to think I can't start my vacation out on the right foot!!
I will not let the errors of my ways YESTERDAY turn into a whole week of disappointment!

Well here I am, another week... had weigh in tonight, down 1#, for a total of 7.4 in what 5/6 weeks?? I can live with that!!
I was sure that I hadn't done well this week... Friday was a "Supervisor Appreciation Day" for me and 3 other Supervisors at work. Total surprise... I skipped the bagels and cream cheese they brought in, but the pot luck lunch... and the cake... and ice cream bon bons!! WOW!
I managed to have a taste of most things, but not a lot of anything!!
Friday night we went out to dinner... and I succumbed to fish & sweet potato fries!!
Saturday I had a few chips with lunch... had more chips later in the day... and still had popcorn (cooked in butter oil) while having family movie night!!
Sunday we went to the casino, and while I thought I was making decent choices at the FREE Buffet... I walked out of there feeling pretty full! I wasn't stuffed as I would normally do, so I thought, OK maybe I did do OK! Then we sat in Margaritaville, for a drink while waiting for time to catch the bus... so I was sure today would not be a pleasant weigh in, but I was prepared for anything!!
I must have made good choices, and I walked a lot yesterday... because I tell you I was mega surprised when she said down 1#! WOW...
So now I am home... will make my salads for the rest of the work week lunches... will make soup for supper... drink another bottle of water, then some tea and settle in for the night.
I am so happy, but now want to make sure I "tow the line" between now and Easter!!

Well here it is Tuesday... had weigh in last night, down .2#! Certainly OK with me, but not quite what I had hoped for! I know that I was "out" Sunday and didn't "track" as diligently as I could have.
Then Monday... very busy at work... let the day get away from me... didn't track well, ended up not eating properly, and went to bed feeling disappointed with myself! I also didn't have enough water yesterday!!
Today: Had some cake at work for boss' birthday... drinking my water... was taken to lunch by my supervisor... had a tuna salad... huge amount of greens, some other veggies, but more tuna with mayo then I should have had! Oh well, tracked it and can live with it!
I have met most of my daily "goals", should have more carbs and more fiber! Will see what I can do! I am prepping my produce for the rest of the week tonight, so maybe I will have some fruit... add carbs and fiber (?) without a lot more calories...
Just feeling like I let myself down the past three days, and if I continue to let myself get out of control I will only disappoint myself at weigh in again next week!
I am hoping that writing my feelings... and thoughts, will somehow "magically" make them more solid in my mind. I will also write in my journal, like I do (almost) every night, before bed. I need to get my head BACK in the game... now I am at an average of 1.6# per week? Not a great average... so I want a boost before next weigh in!!

"You've gone over your weekly calories burned goal by a significant amount. If you have increased the amount of exercise you are doing, you should update your fitness settings to make sure you are consuming enough calories to support the additional activity."
Now here's something I don't do very often!! Gone over my calories burned goal!! WOW...
I am not however, going to change my goals... this doesn't happen very often... not sure it has EVER happened... so I will not worry just yet!!
IF I do this more often, like 3-4 weeks in a row, THEN I may think about changing my goals... meanwhile, i will just hope that it will be beneficial to my weight loss progress!!
I feel like this is a POSITIVE thing for me for a change!! Weigh in Monday will be the test I guess!! Looking forward to it this week...

Well it is Thursday, and I have been in a "funk" most of the week! I was trying to blame the time change... but seriously, it was only an hour... and I have been sleeping "enough" all week, but still feel tired and irritable!
I have been meeting most of my goals, however I have excused myself from exercise all week!! WHY?? Lazy... the only word I can use... LAZY!! Today however... I am taking early lunch, so I will NOT let the nice bright sunshine call me away from my work out at Curves.
Fourteen years ago, I lost 60# by walking... only walking... this time around however, that doesn't seem to be the case! I haven't walked "seriously" so maybe if I made it a regular daily habit, it WOULD help, but for some reason I talk myself out of almost everything I think I should do! Today I will not avoid it!!!
I was running late today and didn't get my lunch packed, so I will be ordering out... a turkey, on whole wheat, with no mayo, let/tom/on/pickles... not "bad" for me, just not my usual salads. Maybe this will help also... maybe I have been having too many salads, and even though I hit my daily calories, proteins, carbs, etc., maybe I just need something different!!
My "challenge" wioth no salad for lunch is getting enough fruits and vegetables in my normal daily diet... so today, I will have to make up for that!
WOW... weird how putting this all down "on paper" so to speak, helps... I now feel more committed to making this a good day, regardless of my not packing lunch!!!
One hour until I can go work out... think it will help my "mood" of the day as well... thanks for listening!
