So I decided that I am going to start keeping track of my food on a printed food journal and enter it in once a week on this site (maybe more, but at least once) so that way I am still holding myself accountable, but if I don't log in I won't lose all the information for the day. I rolled my ankle last Saturday - the one I had surgery on - which caused a domino affect on my lower back (injury 10yrs ago) soo I've been lovely this past week. But I gotta keep going.. I'm feeling rather lonely and wish I had some decent friends to hang out with once in a while. I didn't realize the hardest part about moving to a new state was going to be making new friends. Friends have always come naturally wherever I've lived. But Michigan is a bit different, and I think I'm a bit different too. But I'll keep looking, meeting people, hopefully there is another couple or a few girls that I can find to hang out with once in a while. Online is fun, but it gets lonely.

This week by far was the hardest. Monday I worked, went to the gym, worked more. Tuesday I worked from 8am to 7pm and then went to the gym. Wednesday I didn't go to the gym. I worked until 5:30 and got home and realized my home needed me. My daughter was starting to feel left out since I wasn't home enough, the house is getting trashed since no one knows how to pick up after themselves. Everyone asking me, Where are the cups? Why aren't there any forks. Why do you think ppl? duh.. If you don't wash them and you use them all they aren't going to appear in the cabinet or drawer by themselves nice and clean... This week is month end at work. That means all my financial reports are due. I spend the week contacting people to tell them what mistakes they made that impact my reports, and how they need to fix them asap. Fun times. I create multiple reports on all the different aspects of the company and provide them for management review. It can be tiring some times, rewardnig other times. But boy is my life suffering from it. Yesterday I ate too much! I LOVE the taste of food. Hmm...

Sept 21, Monday - Condensing long post: Skipped Saturday, worked out good Sunday. Working on organizing the house in the spare time. Starting to feel a little more energy at night, but mornings are still an issue. BF has been helping, Daughter is trying but up/down. I hope I'm showing her a better example now. Think I'm going to invest in 100 cal snack packs for her for after school - she must eat one frut or veggie serving to have one serving of chips. I'm scared of the future and really hope that I make enough progress to have a healthy future. I have Multiple Sclerosis so future is always uncertain, but I want to enjoy life and just have fun.
Sept 22, Tuesday - Got a good workout yesterday. Did lower half, and pushed myself. I did 160lbs on the leg press with two legs, and 130 with each leg by itself. I decided I'm going to hire the trainer for the initial 5 visits, getting 2 good workout routines & lil advice. I want to be pushed. I'm going to keep watching the biggest loser as inspiration. I want to go to the gym tonight, even though this would be our off day. Maybe to just do cardio? I am starting to really enjoy going after work.
Sept 23, Weds - Well I didn't work out Tues like I wanted to. I'm not sure if it was MS or the jump-roping he day before, but my right leg was in too much pain. On the way to the gym we decided not to go, and instead went to dairy queen. Yeah, great choice.. lol. Good news I stayed in my point range. Bad news I went overboard at DQ. Good news, I feel better today since I took medicine last night and slept. I'm doing good this morning, so here is to a successfull day!
Thurs, Sept 24 - I didn't work out yesterday again. Ankle was super swollen and had shin pain. Just when I thought I was healed for surgery - I guess I still can't jumprope without consequences. I plan to go to the gym directly after work today and do the upper body work out with a little cardio on the bike. I've got so much work to do for reporting week next week, it's not funny. I'm going to make it a goal to get on here at least once mon, tues, & weds even with the reporting chaos.
Fri - Sept 25 - I messed up huge. Those nachos were sooo good.. yummm... Yesterday I had a great workout, today i was down two pounds and a few inches here and there. So that was good, but today.. ooops.. we ate out twice!!! yikes!!! not good... I didn't get a chance to workout today. We wanted to but the day got away due to work and errands. Tomorrow we will though!!

Sept 13 - day 1 - did pretty good. I think the food was a little high. The exercise was really good. Didn't want to go, but once we went it felt really good to be there.
Sept 14 - Monday, day 2 - bombed! Calorie intake through the roof! My daughter had a mental breakdown so we ended up staying home and not going to the gym. We also ended up ordering food at 8pm for dinner due to the crises. Frustrating day
Sept 15 - Tuesday, day 3 - I cheated and snuck a look at the scale. I want to start weighing myself again on friday mornings, but I was pleasantly surprised. Even though I sabotaged things yesterday I still lost weight. Down 10 lbs total in the past 2 weeks of going to the gym. I don't think my breakfast choice was the healthiest though. I really wanted the watermelon, then I ended up having bacon too. The thing that put me over the top was the apple juice and man the carb/sugar in that is outrageous!! I was able to get the cardio and strength training in at the gym. And I stayed in my calorie range. Getting there. The biggest loser made tears come to my eyes.
Sept 16 - Weds, day 3 - I stayed in my point range. I decided to have three pieces of bacon with watermelon for breakfast to try and get extra protien. I know it's fattening, but as long as I stay in my point range, I guess it's ok until I find something healthier. We had too many errands and things to do, so we skipped the gym tonight. I don't like skipping a day at all.
Sept 17 - Thurs - day 4 - I'm not quite to my point range today, but I'm over in fat and sodium. My fiber is severly lacking. Starting to think about what changes I can make to switch this around.
Sept 18 - Friday - Weigh In - Day 5 - This is going to conclude week 1 since I want to weigh in friday to friday. I did good. I did lose that 10 lbs rather quickly. I didn't really lose many inches though. My newest resolutions - No soda at all, No fruity drinks either. I'm also thinking about substituting hard boiled egg for bacon for breakfast. So I did that, which is less fat and carbs, but now higher in cholesterol! So I added cholesterol and calcium to track as well. I need to scour the recipes and stuff for breakfast ideas that are simple, healthy and filling.
