Busy Busy Weekend

Sunday, March 01, 2009

It was a cleaning weekend, a hang with the family weekend, and a party weekend. I had to clean at least the main floor for my Tastefully Simple guests. Then I tended to all the laundry and cleaned most of the basement family room misc. today. Whew! I did get my workout in before I cleaned....otherwise I would have been in trouble!

They are calling for disgusting weather and it's my first day on the new job. How lovely! NOT!

Off to pass out in bed.

My Worst Fall Off the Wagon Ever

Friday, February 27, 2009

I got a new job, and my coworkers treated me to lunch. I picked the healthiest menu item and didn't even eat everything that was given to me. However...this is a know what they accompanied my healthy meal with? A dessert. So I picked one. No big deal. Brought it home and I must confess that I thought my hubby would indulge or the kids would want to share. Well, it wasn't chocolate. It was a lemon/citrus thing. I decided to grab it. I had such a good day leading up. Even two cardio sessions today. I never should have gone looking for the nutritional information. Just shouldn't. The darned thing is almost a whole day's worth of calories. I am shocked. I am awed. It happened. Ugh. I can only be mad at myself for not grabbing something that I did have on hand that was better. I haven't even been buying or making dessert since I started my journey. Gah! emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

  Julie~ Try not to beat yourself up over it. If you enjoyed it, you're entitled to it too; you just have to make a conscience effort not to make it a habit. You're busting your butt making right decisions day in and day out & that includes all the mommy stuff you do. You work a great deal too. It's only a desert & you'll get back on track. If you make yourself suffer for a bad choice you'll continue to make bad choices in food. You're doing AWESOME. So, keep up the great work, treat yourself now & then & you'll be just fine. The weight IS coming off emoticon.

Exercise is a must

Friday, February 27, 2009

I knew this when I started my journey to weight loss...but this week, I am realizing just how important it is. If I think the day is going to be insane, then I will know the night before and I really should get up and exercise first thing...even if I only feel like Pilates. Just given the way my body is, and knowing it was going to take hard work...I have to exercise daily.

In addition to exercise, I have to get my daily water. I missed that one day this week and I know it messed with me. And snacks. I have to feed the furnace. I cannot skip snacks. I did that this week too. I know my body was not happy with me. I gained .6 from my best point on my weight loss journey. It makes me frustrated that it happened. I know I'll correct it...but I'm frustrated anyhow. My daughters have preschool today, and this is my last Friday at home for the next 3 months. I need to take advantage of the time and try to exercise more today. I think it will boost my spirits!


The Scale's Enemy

Thursday, February 26, 2009

In my humble little's the 'lady in red', 'TOM', or whatever you choose to call it. I feel the bloat. The pain. I know it is right around the corner. And the scale told me so. UGH. I have hope, however. My 30 day shred DVD should be in any day, and I will give it a go. After the last exit of the TOM, the scale was awfully nice to me. :) I have hope!


Sputter, Splat, Splash

That was the sound of me falling off the wagon last night. The family and I went to a pancake supper. I felt so bloated after, and I did workout for 40 minutes. But I had to sleep elevated b/c I felt horrible! Blech!

So today...I cut way way back on try and undo the bad. Now, let me be honest with myself...last night was the first time I ever went over since my weight loss journey. I have not had enough water today. I have not eaten the minimal amount of calories today. I am not exercising today. So that's it. Tomorrow is a new day, and I hope to wake up and feel good (i.e. far from the bloated feeling I had.

Doesn't help that the TOM is about to hit. Bah. emoticon
