Bye, Scale.

Thursday, July 28, 2011

My scale is getting the better of me so it is being put away TONIGHT.

I am working on this journey, I am eating better, I am exercising, and I don't deserve to be defeated by a dumb number. So it's going away for awhile. I don't know how long. (As long as I can stand to not know.)

A new day, new week

Monday, July 25, 2011

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.

    Thanks for your encouraging reply to my blog, Lee! Definitely weigh yourself in the morning, but most importantly, don't beat yourself up! Keep your head up! emoticon

    Ugh, I hate those days. Don't give up. You could be having a weird week. Sometimes, if that happens to me, I weigh myself the next morning. This helps two ways - it keeps me from going on a p!ssed off binge today and the scale might be down tomorrow because of water retention. Good luck!

    The 2 lbs could be water weight. Wait and see how you do today, and weigh yourself tomorrow. Hopefully, you'll be down. DON'T GIVE UP! You can do it. One day at a time. Good luck!

Weekend highlights

Monday, July 18, 2011

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. emoticon

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!


Day off

Thursday, July 14, 2011

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. emoticon
