Day 9

Tuesday, October 02, 2012

I'm back emoticon Well I did get a mile in today. I'm pretty proud of myself for that. The only thing is I'm really craving fatty foods and I'm not sure why. It isn't very helpful. emoticon I'm not sure if it's because I don't eat enough protein. I try to but meat and I don't always go well together and I have to be careful with milk and eggs because I'm allergic. emoticon My husband jokes and says I should become a vegan but I don't really care much for Tofu. emoticon Plus that way of eating is expensive.

Right now all our extra money goes to our little one for his needs. You wouldn't think it but even a High Functioning Autism is expensive to control. He loves to learn but he has sensory problems and he is very socially awkward. He's been in school since he was 2.5 yrs old. This is his first yr he was ever this bad. Yes we had a couple biting incidents, but it was maybe once a yr. Now I'm afraid to see the note from school. He bites, screams, pushes, pinches, mauls, spits, and he's been very mouthy.

I think I just answered my own question. Is it possible to crave fat when you are stressed 24/7?

If so any ideas. He is seeing a counselor, he just started with a behavioral counselor, and I work with him at home. The school just set up a token thing too. I'll admit he is getting better but he still can't keep his hands to himself and when he hugs you, one can't be sure if he is really gonna hug you or if he is gonna kiss, or bite you. Sorry I'm just ranting so I will get off and get my stuff situated for tomorrow. emoticon

I hope everyone had a nice weekend and keep up the good work :)

Day 8

Tuesday, October 02, 2012

I'm a day late for blogging my day 8, but I have great news. I lost 2.2 lbs my first wk. I know I can do better but I'm not pushing myself because of the infection. I'm still making sure I keep with the calorie count and I am doing some light exercise. I am still in pain. The infection is almost completely out of my system but I still have the side effects of the meds and it makes me even more tired than usual. Yesterday I didn't do any exercise but I did clean the house a little. It's better than no activity at all. Day 9 (today) I'm doing better and gonna be walking a mile again. Tell you more in my Day 9 Blog :)

Thank you;

However I did do great with my calorie count even though I felt like I was starving. lol. Well I hope everyone has a good night.

Day 6

Sunday, September 30, 2012

My day six was actually Sat. but I couldn't get on the site. Yesterday I was in a lot of pain and didn't move much because it brought tears to my eyes. Between the pain from the infection and the side effects of the antibiotic I had all I could do to stay awake. I did do decent with my calorie intake. I did accidently go over but it was only 60 calories. I am feeling a little better today. I won't be walking a mile yet but I am gonna be doing some cleaning around the house. I hope everyone had a nice and safe Saturday night :)

Day 5

Friday, September 28, 2012

This week I didn't reach all my goals. However I did accomplish more than I have since I tried to loose my weight right after I had my son. I'm working on getting up to 8 glasses of water but I am drinking 5 cups more than I use to. I didn't get all the minutes in for my exercise this week but I did burn 10 more calories than was needed in the hrs I did exercise :)

These next couple of days I will be watching my calorie intake but I will be taking it easy on the activities. I caught an infection and in a lot of pain. They put me on an antibiotic but now it's a waiting game. Once I've recovered I will be giving it my all again :)

Plus my stress with my son is getting better. The school found a way for him to be on his best behavior. The main thing we have to work on is keeping his hands to himself. Do to his Asperger's he doesn't know how to read people's body language and gets a little aggressive. Have to come up with scenarios and role play with him so he can learn how to use his words instead of his hands.

Hope everyone has a great weekend ;)

    GREAT GREAT GREAT attitude!!!!! I *love* that you ultimately have decided that you are a lot further along than you were before, which is amazing. That's the best part about these goals - setting them and getting close means we're on the right track and we WILL get there.

Glad to hear about your son. Being a mother is a tough job, and thank goodness for great teachers and support systems who help us bring out the best in our dear children.

Thanks for sharing!
