Stupid scale. Oh, well, at least I'm not up more. I ate a lot of unhealthy food this weekend--I planned a cheat day, plus I was stressed and my husband is a bad influence. Still, today I'm back on track, went to the gym and am looking up SparkRecipes. I just get tired of it all and want to go to McDonalds and give up. But then I look in the mirror and see the lovely spare tire around my hips and I know I have to do something to get rid of it. I have a wedding at the end of May and then there's summer and the pool. I have the choice to do nothing. To continue eating how I eat and see what happens--but I really would prefer to lose the spare tire.
I need more activity and less fast food. More activity, less fast food. More activity, less fast food.
And it's only been 2 weeks--I need to give my body time to adjust to eating better, eating less and so forth. The activity isn't too hard--I enjoy it and I'm getting fitter. It is the eating well and less part. Sigh.

I had my cheat day yesterday. It is actually kind if a relief to go back to counting calories today. I really wasn't even hungry at night-- my stomach has definitely shrunk a bit at least. We'll see what the scale says tomorrow. My jeans are falling off of me a bit, so hopefully that's a good sign. Or just a sign that I need to wash them, lol. I didn't really do much exercise this week besides a few walks with the girls. That is better than before (yay warmish weather!), but I hope to do better this week. My goal is to go the gym Mon and Weds and a trampoline place with my dd on Tues. I still need to get more healthy food options-- I need more protein-- so maybe I need to start cooking meat at home. I'm not a vegetarian, but I usually avoid cooking meat myself.
I could probably handle baking some chicken breasts though. Maybe. :)
I also decided to get a bike to ride this summer with my daughter. Haven't ridden a bike in ages, so that should be interesting.

I even had to talk myself into the last 200 calories. It was an upsetting evening, so that contributed to it. Maybe my stomach has shrunk, though, over the past week and a half, because I wasn't really hungry all day even before things went emotionally south. That's a good thing, but I know I can't eat this few calories often. It's cold again outside and one of the girls is sick so I didn't expend many calories today either. I don't know, I try to eat healthy, but I don't have much enthusiasm for it. I tend to just not eat instead of taking energy to make something that will just be meh. But perhaps this is the process- breaking down my diet before building it up again with healthier food. One can hope. Today it is nice outside so I'll walk with my girls a bit-- get some air.

I'm actually seeing changes! Yay! My body usually does react quickly to lower calories, but I'm older now and with 3 kids, who knows what my body will do, lol. I weighed in yesterday and had the 1 pound loss which is good, but I can really see a difference in the mirror and feel a difference in my body. I've only been counting calories for a week, but I've been working out for awhile so maybe my body was just ready to slim down? Or maybe not eating out has reduced my salt/fat levels and is flushing my system out. Whatever it is, it is nice seeing results so quickly. :)
I still have a ways to go though-- mostly in establishing more healthy choices for meal options. I don't think I'll be eating out much anymore. My bank account will probably appreciate that as much as my body. :)
