I worked four 12 hour shifts and even though I took my meals to work and had the best of intentions I ate a lot of junk and sodium-laden foods. On Thursday I did ok, but Friday we ordered Olive Garden and I ate too much. Then Saturday my father-in-law came to stay with us because he lost power due to an ice storm. I love him, but it's stressful with him here. On Sunday, work was super stressful and I didn't get lunch until 3:30 so I had greasy pizza and 2 candy bars!!! Needless to say, I didn't lose any this week. But, I didn't gain either!
Things I've learned this week:
1. I stress eat. For real.
2. When I eat junk, I feel like junk.
3. Too much sodium makes me swell and gives me a monster of a headache.
Things I'm going to do differently this week:
1. I'm going to start locking my wallet in my car instead of taking it into work with me. If I don't have any money on me I can't go to the cafeteria and buy crap.
2. I'm going to make fitness a priority. I did walk today and will again tomorrow and Wed. before I go back to work on Thurs.
3. Monitor my sodium intake more closely.
I have a physical tomorrow and am nervous about my blood work. My levels have always been normal but my eating has been out of control and I'm nervous my glucose level will be high. This may sound crazy, but I almost hope it's slightly elevated as that might be the motivation I need to get my butt in gear that I seem to be lacking, of late.
Today I went with hubby to have an MRI of his brain. He's had 3 brain tumors and it's been 8 years since his last one. He was having yearly MRI's but now he can go every 4 years since the scan today was clear!!! Yay!!! And how do you celebrate a clear MRI? By eating hot dogs of course, lol. I'll do better tomorrow. Promise.
I hope everyone has a great week! The weather is finally getting more spring-like. Tomorrow it's going to be in the 70's!

I'm participating in a DONE girl challenge called Blooming Beauties. It started March 1 and ends on Memorial Day. We weighed in at the beginning of the challenge and again on holidays like St. Pat's day, Earth day, Easter, etc. until Memorial Day. This is a 12 week challenge and I'd like to lose 1.5 lbs a week which will be 18 lbs.
I am so sick of starting and stopping challenges and am going to try my best to finish this one.
This is the dreaded before picture for the challenge:
I'm going to get back to walking and lifting weights. Some co-workers and I are doing a mud run in June so I need to be ready for that. I'm not running it, just walking, slipping and sliding in the mud, lol.
I'm going to do a weekly blog/weigh in: Today my weight is 265!

There are 45 days left in the year so I'm going to shout it from the rooftop, or virtual rooftop as it were, that I'm going to be 10 lbs lighter by Jan 01, 14! There, I put it out there for all of you to see.
I do very well when in competitions but poorly left on my own so this is a competition I'm going to be having with myself. I will start the next BLC in January and I'm going to start it at 255 lbs.
45 days left in this year and I WILL DO IT!
I'm also going to start training for a Marine Mud Run in June 2014.
I know this will be difficult to do during the holidays but if I wait until January, which my brain is still trying to talk me into, I'll find another excuse.
NO EXCUSES. NO EXCUSES. NO EXCUSES. NO EXCUSES. NO EXCUSES. NO EXCUSES.
