Back Again!

Monday, January 24, 2011

I came out of the holidays with a 4 pound gain. And holding...

Time to start tracking big time again. We have fallen into a eating out slump lately that we need to nip quick. Monetarily it is expensive and the addition to my weight is not helping either!

Hubby still has no job after 3 years so that weighs on my mind. Luckily he gets unemployment from job attempts but at some point that will run out. He's after me to use all our savings to pay off the house which scares me as he has no job. I'm the sole breadwinner so to speak. He also wants to go on a cruise. We have been doing home improvement projects too. He is a full time student and that will end this semester so then he has to find a job and hopes to continue on getting a masters degree. It is really stressful. What really annoys me is he doesn't help out around the house much. So I get home and it is what's for dinner? Which leads me to eating out cuz I'm too tired to mess with dinner. I'm also sick of our house looking like a tornado swept through it. Every weekend I try to make a dent. I just wish hubby would contribute more.

I think I'm going to try making a chore chart. haha I'll assign jobs to Jake and hubby. Maybe that will do it????

This week I'm planning on taking one day at a time. Get out and walk or work out every day. I already created my food plan for the week. My goal is to stick to it rather than eating out. Wish me luck!

Week 4

Monday, August 23, 2010

Did great until the weekend hit. Then I was pretty much out of control on my eating. Didn't track. It is that time of the month so I always have some sort of binge. this weekend it was salt. Couldn't get enough tortilla chips and salsa! Didn't get much exercise in either. It was so hot. We did get some pool time in yesterday but it was a wading pool more than actual swimming. Oh well.

Back on track this week. Got my elliptical training in today. Jake started kindergarten today as well. He was so excited. I was so panicked. DH didn't have problems until after he dropped him off. But I haven't heard anything from the school yet so that's good! I can't wait to hear how his day went. Tomorrow he has soccer practice and Saturdays soccer games. I get to bring the healthy snacks first! Also, this coming weekend is our turn for the Broncos party which means I have control over the snacks for the game this time. Mwhahaha. Just kidding. But really. emoticon

My goals for this week is keep working on the water and tracking my food.

    Having control is a good thing! I sneek in healthy food to parties all the time and never tell that it is lowfat and sugar free.

Week 3 - August

Monday, August 16, 2010

I got in lots of exercise this weekend. Swimming Saturday and mtn hiking 4 miles on Sunday. My eating was bad Saturday but better Sunday. At least I stayed in calorie range. I also tracked everything. Yay.

My additional goal for this week is to drink 8 glasses of water. I've been bad about that only getting in 4 glasses.

    Your pictures almost look like you live in my neighborhood. I live in NE Oregon (it appears you are in Colorado) but our mountains look a lot alike. We too went hiking this weekend (8 miles and included a 2000 foot ascent). It's a really good way to mix things up. Good for you! Get that water in and keep the sodium down. I can't tell you how much it has helped me. Keep up the good work!

Good and Bad

Friday, August 13, 2010

I'm on track for exercising and noticing some toning going on, but my weight is up this week. *sigh* Teach me to get groceries in advance and not rely on my husband. We also had a dinner party this week and I splurged a bit. Weekend is coming with a few parties so will have to watch that as well.

My goal for the week coming up is to actually track my food and of course keep up the exercising. I also want to get my water up to 8 glasses a day instead of 4. Also get all veggies and fruits in. I've been doing well with the fruit, but veggies not so much.


A new day...

Thursday, August 05, 2010

Yesterday, I was still thrown off but finally snapped out of the fog last night. I met my food goals and fitness goals yesterday but it was a struggle.

Today I feel much better. My mind is clear, I'm sticking to my food and exercise plan. Not tired like yesterday. I did really well in power yoga today. Felt more balanced.

I am getting nervous about the weekend though. I'll have to come up with a plan and try and stick with it.
