Stress Eating

Monday, August 20, 2007

I was really bad with stress eating this weekend. Jake was particularly clingy and I had a bad day at work on Friday which I stewed about all weekend. DH was at a fishing tournament in another state all weekend so I binged a little. Back on track today.


I did well on vacation

Monday, August 13, 2007

Just got back from Mackinac Island, Michigan. It was beautiful. Got lots of exercise as no motorized vehicles are allowed on the island. I think I made good food choices most of the time. Ate some fudge.

Jake loved the horses. He'd give them a thumbs up everytime he saw them. I got alot of knitting done and listened to my book on tape. Still haven't finished the HP book. I didn't take it with me as I figured I didn't want to haul the thing around.

We also visited family in Chicago and Indiana. Visited Notre Dame and got some new shirts to irritate my brother during football season. LOL.

We went to Mackinac 2 summers ago. I've spent a lot of time in that area since I have a lot of family in Michigan. I bet it was cooler there!!

I read HP before I left and then we listened to the book on tape on our trip 2 weeks ago. But we didn't make it all the way through so I had to finish up on my own. Hope you like it!

No more pop starting 8/1

Thursday, August 02, 2007

I decided to give up pop as I noticed when I do have it, I feel tired and lethargic. Also, Jake constantly wants a sip and I'd rather he didn't get addicted to it at such a young age. DH just got braces so he is giving it up as well. The last time I stopped drinking pop was when I was pregnant with Jake so if I could do it for 9 months I can do it for life!

    How are you doing with drinking no soda? Once upon a time I was drinking between 3-5 Mt. Dews a DAY. NOW I "open" about 3 diet sodas a WEEK! And I say "open" because I normally never finish them. I never thought I would say it but I don't miss them at all. I normally only drink water or crystal light or propel.
Good Luck!

    Good for you. I started here 2 weeks ago and I gave it up to. At first it was hard, but now, it doesn't really bother me. I don't feel bloated or antsy anymore.

    Good luck! If it helps any, think of how much money you save drinking water instead. And you won't miss it after a week or two.

Survived the weekend!

Tuesday, July 31, 2007

Had a super stressful weekend. Inlaws visited. Lots of drama. I can't believe I didn't binge eat! I would have if MIL didn't constantly ask me if whatever I was eating healthy and apart of my diet program. So I felt very self concious. I did snack a little but not much. Mainly I was on the run transporting and making sure everyone was having a good time.

Next week will be the huge challenge to my diet program! I think I might take some healthy recipes with me so I can make them when we go to visit Great Grandma. She doesn't cook and she usually has moldy stuff in the fridge (scarey). (She's 96 and can't see well.) That way she doesn't have to worry about entertaining 4 adults and 3 toddlers. The rest of the vacation we will be in Mackinac Island. I so look forward to that! No motor vehicles allowed so I'll be doing lots of hiking, biking, etc. I'm taking my knitting with me too. So I can kick back and enjoy sitting along the water. I'm going to try and convince dh that SIL and I need a day without kids. DH and BIL are getting a day so I think we ladies should get one too!


Up .4

Monday, July 23, 2007

AF is here to visit and with it a .4 gain. I'll take it. Usually it is a 2-3 pound gain! Did lots of running around this weekend. DH was at a fishing tournament so I did lots of running after Jake! It is a work out to haul a screaming, kicking toddler back to the stroller after playing on the playground! That should count for some strength training! I also did lots of climbing on the playground equipment. I swear Jake is a daredevil. He ran up to the tallest slide and before I could catch up to him he was down it and running back around to do it again! Heart failure. DH has plans for him to do the tour de France. (DH is a huge bike racing fan-road and mtn). My guess is Jake will be the trick snowboarder. Great.

I planned out my week last night as far as what I will eat. It really helps me stay on target. Plus, when I get home, everything is ready to go as long as dh is there to watch Jake while I fix dinner. Sometimes he isn't but I still make it through. Jake ends up eating Ramen and peas while I fix dinner. (He then eats part of my portion so talk about portion control..Jake does it for me!) We have dh's parents coming at the end of the week to celebrate Jake's birthday. We are having a family bbq. I'm taking Friday off so they can see Jake. Busy, busy, busy. I'm ready for my Aug 4th-12th vacation!

    Ha! I can picture Jake being like the flying tomato, Shawn ahhhh I can't remember his last name! It's amazing how those little guys can be so fearless! Happy belated birthday to him and I hope you have a wonderful vacation!
