6 day streak ends, but...

Tuesday, August 28, 2012

I had a streak going for 6 days where I lost at least .2 pounds (I have a digital scale) every morning. I was on a high seeing a smaller number each morning. I knew it would not last forever, but I had hope for more mileage out of this streak.

Admittedly, I was sad, teetering on depressed, this morning to see a +.8 pounds staring back at me from the scale especially after eating "right" yesterday even though I did not workout.

I considered forgoing my planned run and enjoying a decadent lunch while on my day trip today. But, I know in my heart that I need to hold steady to the plan to reach my destination.

I am proud to say that I did go for my run and rocked it (best time yet at 12:32 min/mi). AND, I took a long drive in the convertible (topless), enjoyed the sun, stopped for lunch...Chipotle: ordered a bowl instead of a burrito.

I feel that I can chalk today up as a success even though it started out disappointing.

  the scale will fluctuate like crazy while you're still on the losing side of things. Don't be discouraged. emoticon

Mom's day off! Woo Hoo!!!

Tuesday, August 28, 2012

My birthday is Thursday and the only thing I wanted was a day off from work and a day off from being a Mom. And, I got it!!

The only "Mom" duty was to drop the girls off at daycare this am. Done!!!

Ran 2.25 miles already too!

Now, I'm off to take a shower and pack a bag for a day trip to destination unknown!! I'm super excited that the sun is out and I get to take the convertible for a long, quiet drive all day long.

Can you tell I'm excited????

Birthday party~

Sunday, August 26, 2012

My oldest turns 4 this week. So, we went to the pool today for her party. Hard to pack "good" food when you are going to be at a pool all day. We ended up ordering pizza.

I behaved but did go over my calorie goal for the day after having a piece of cake and ice cream. :-( But, I'm not going to beat myself up about it.

I did get a run in this morning and it was the longest run I've done so far this year!! :-) So, the day was not all that bad.

    Thanks Jem! It was a hard day to be the big person at the pool and hanging out in a suit. :-( Both of my SILs are half my weight. So, that kept my food intake in check.

I always get emotional this week as it is between my oldest kid's birthday as well as mine (and I'm facing #39 this week..yikes!!).

    Actually, it sounds like a good day. You didn't beat yourself up :) and your little girl was born today.

Struggled but survived the day~

Saturday, August 25, 2012

I am finding that the weekends are so hard to get through (diet-wise). Continuous access to the fridge and pantry as well as running errands around town past all of the favorite fast food places. BUT, despite the struggle and a slight calorie overage, I feel ok about today.

It could have turned bad quickly. I am proud of myself for not caving in.

Now, please give me the strength to survive Sunday...

Down 4 pounds this week!!! Woo Hoo!!! :-) Of course, it is water weight and I don't expect this to be an ongoing trend, But I finally buckled down and accepted the fact that I can only eat 1500 calories a day. Super excited right now!! This is finally the motivation I needed to keep going.

Yeah me!
