My day off FINALLY! And Matt and I get to go to stay at my parents' tonight and babysit my nephew too! So excited!!

Hopped on the scale this morning... 190.6! Again, headed in the right direction. My goal is to be under 190 this week...and I have a good feeling I'll get there at the rate I'm going! :D

Despite having my gorge fest last night and the night before, I stayed within my ranges luckily and still tracked everything. It wasn't the best stuff for me...and I did go a little over in sodium both days (by about 150mg or so), and I didn't get close to a lot of the micronutrients that the feedback report tracks all day. But today will be different! I'm starting the day with my perfect fried egg, steel-cut oats in soymilk with fresh raspberries and strawberries. Then before Matt and I head out for the day, I'm going to make some lunch...probably with some broccoli and zucchini and/or yellow squash since I've got it. :)

Oh, I also started some crock-pot spaghetti sauce this morning. :D Tomorrow will be a yummy day too!

Have a super wonderful day, everybody! It's gonna be a hot one, but at least it's sunny!!


Sorta did it again...?

So, I've got to get back to the way I was eating last week and the week before. Although I hit all of my ranges today (almost...just 28 calories away from the minimum today), I still was STARVING by the time dinner came around and ended up gorging myself on, practically, two meals. A little individual pizza (organic tomatoes and cheese, yes, tasty, not really...but I ate it anyway :\ ) and then a quesadilla with mozzarella, a small tomato, bit of onion, and my homemade greek yogurt southwestern dip (much tastier). I still could have chosen better, but at least I didn't jump way past my ranges or anything. I'm sure I went over on sodium though... Hmm...

Lesson learned: EAT ALL DAY LONG. Small meals all day. Eat when you're hungry. Don't wait. Otherwise you gorge yourself and get cranky!!

    You know, I was thinking it might have been the moon. ;) I noticed it last night!

I think tomorrow will be better, because I'm going to get up and make a great perfect fried egg, steel-cut oats, and all! Drink at least a nalgene (4 cups) of water by the end of breakfast. And then I'm leaving campus for the night! That will get me away from all the temptations in the dining hall...and I'll have a full, awesome kitchen (at my parents' house) to cook in for the night! :D

But, if the urge comes, I will make myself a cup of tea and shoot you a message! Thanks for the encouragement! :)

    I think it comes in chunks... maybe as few as twice, but rarely an isolated episode. I am with you on annoyance with myself but.. maybe it was the full moon? If so, the influence is waning and tomorrow and the following days will be better!
Good luck and tomorrow, if you so feel like eating a tad more than maybe you want, send me an email or message... it might just distract you for long enough! If you are still wanting something... herbal tea.

The day after.

Wednesday, September 22, 2010

Back down to 191.4 again today. :) I knew that just jumping back on my plan would push me in the right direction again! Despite my pasta, curry, chicken gorge last night...I was in my ranges and wasn't hungry the rest of the night. (And actually, I slept in today, and wasn't hungry for breakfast yet...until now!!)

So, it's a good day. :) And so was yesterday when I weighed in and was a pound heavier than last week. I'm back at it...and doing great!

It's raining here today, but hopefully that won't get me down. Off to walk to Jamba Juice to meet the boyfriend. Have a great day!

Okay, so tonight I went overboard. I was hungry when I went to the dining hall to get dinner. I got pasta first, which would have been fine... But then I noticed they had Thai green curry in the homestyle area. I couldn't resist.

The biggest problem is that I ended up eating both the pasta and the curry. I'm stuffed. Feeling gross. I'm in all of my ranges, but I did NOT eat the right things this time around. I even ate chicken with the curry. :
This just goes to show you...DON'T LET YOURSELF GET TOO HUNGRY! I didn't eat lunch, but I had a late breakfast and then a snack at about 4:15p. But it didn't hold me over. I was hungry (and cranky...sorry Matt...). My hungry blocked my reasoning area of my brain.

I think it'll be a good idea to avoid that dining hall for a while...

(Man, and now I could really really go for some chocolate or Haggen-Daz Dark Chocolate ice weakness....)

I'll make it through. And tomorrow will be better. I know it will be better. :)


Weigh-in day.

I'm at 192.4. I gained a pound since last Tuesday. I'm not disappointed though. I went on vacation this past weekend! I enjoyed myself while I was away. I didn't go too overboard, but I did indulge, so I'm happy that it isn't more! Yesterday morning I was 193.6. So I'm still headed in the right direction. I'm truly not concerned. :) I'm actually excited for next week! I think I might go under 190!!! I don't remember the last time I was below 190... I think I remember 187 back in college, maybe? Who knows. I'm sure I could look back in my journals and find something... But no need. I know the direction I'm headed, and I can visualize where I'm going to be!

Happy day! :)

    Thanks! I've found that it helps a lot! :) When I know that what I'm doing is right, I can't get down on myself. My body is going to react the way it needs to. I'm trusting my body and its timing. So I'm just going to keep doing things right and see my body adjust to my new lifestyle! :)
