I just want to get that "Ticked" post off the top of my blog. LOL.
We had a good weekend. Dropped off my big boy at his grandparents' for the week. I hope he'll have fun! I miss him already but am looking forward to a quieter week -- his sister will have no one to antagonize her!
She is also going to sleep more easily the last few nights, with a new CD player in her room and a Disney princesses CD. :) Maybe that means I won't have to fall asleep in there with her every night and blow my only free time from 8:30 - 9:30 pm. We'll see.
New day, new week, new chance to treat my body well and feel great as a result...

Well. TOM just ended yesterday so I suppose I could still have some water weight, but my weigh in today was 2 effing pounds up. UP. I wasn't even going to POST because I didn't want to talk about it, but when I got to my desk I got right on SP and started looking to START THE F OVER. Where's the Diet Overview? Give me MEAL PLANS. Someone needs to do this for me, I guess, because whatever I'm doing on my own is obviously not working.
Of course I told myself all the things you're supposed to say, that my family and friends love me no matter what the number on the scale says, that any little bit of exercise and good eating is still BETTER than ice cream and TV all day, that everyone has setbacks, but I really don't understand a 2 pound gain. It is the top boundary of what I've ever weighed... and I thought I had been really doing better lately.
So. I will refrain from spouting all the curse words that are sitting on the tip of my tongue at this moment. And I will meet KV today to walk, and I will refocus I guess and keep on going.
but *&!$$(%@$, I am ticked.

Friday: night out with my girlfriends. Treated myself to red wine and crackers and cheese. Painted a picture!
Saturday: Cleaned house like crazy. Might have burned a few cals doing that! McDonald's Asian chicken salad at lunch. Salmon tostada at dinner (avoided the creamy pasta I REALLY wanted to order).
Sunday: Oatmeal for breakfast. Swimming in the afternoon (yay!). Pizza (boo) and fruit (yay) for dinner.
For once I don't think my weekend included terrible overindulgence. A little, but not too much.
Going to drink lots of water and do my workouts the next 2 days to get ready for my weigh-in day on Wednesday! Long time coming!

Yesterday I intended to do a yoga workout - my fave! - but after putting the kids to bed (and falling asleep in the rocking chair of my 3yo's room), I was just done for. No more juice. AND I had a pretty annoying headache. I napped on the couch, watched some Harry Potter specials, and couldn't even be bothered to get up to switch the laundry to the dryer. (Which made me mad this morning, when I frantically re-washed and dried the load again before leaving for work at 6:30 am! Gah.)
Guess my body needed that rest, though. Tonight if I want to accomplish anything, I'd better NOT SIT DOWN after dinner.

You know what I'm going to report... the weekend was less than stellar and no, I didn't manage to workout at all. HOWEVER, I didn't sit down very often with 2 sets of grandparents wandering around the house -- our house is small, there isn't enough seating space, and I'm always at the kitchen counter, it seems! Not to mention at the birthday party, so that has to count for something!
I was going to list out all the food I ate, but why? I celebrated, I did order a salad one time, heh! ....and it's over and done with.
This week is already going well. Yesterday was a 1630-calorie day (IN limits! no dessert!) with a workout. I still feel like maybe my calorie range isn't right -- 1600 seems like a LOT for wanting to lose weight? I'm 5'1" and 143 lbs. But the calculators say my resting BMR is 1600-ish, so with exercise... I don't know. I'm not feeling overly hungry at the end of the day -- just a little bit hungry. And that's more comfortable than on other diets I've tried.
IF, after my weigh-in on the 20th, I don't see a loss, I might lower my calorie limit my own self and see what happens. Any advice on this would be greatly appreciated.
