Fighting Temptations

Wednesday, May 16, 2012

Well it's starting to happen. All food looks good all the time. I'm driving home thinking about all the places I could eat out...ugh. After this past weekend it's been very hard to enjoy sticking to the plan. Now that I don't have a tight dress to squeeze into it's a lot harder to eat fish and veggies all the time. Hopefully I'll be able to work my way back into it. I dream about the day when this doesn't seem like so much work...when it comes a little more naturally. That does happen eventually right?

    It doesn't happen as much! Set a new goal, why not?? To buy smaller walking outfit for our walk in October? How about a bathing suit??? You CAN do this!!!

Feeling Good

Tuesday, May 15, 2012

Well I had Zumba and T-N-T today and it does feel nice to have a good workout under my belt after a weekend off. Unfortunately I think my weekend is going to reflect on the scale tomorrow. Oh well. Some things are worth it.

Not much to report today. I'm working on a project that's been floating in the back of my mind for oh...3 years now? I keep getting a tiny bit done then leaving it. There is no time frame and that's probably why it's not done. Seeing my friends has inspired me to work on it again so that's going well for now. I also want to start 2 other projects, a puzzle and a cross stitch, that I've been putting off for a while. But with a clean apartment and functioning craft room I've got nothing holding me back! New projects are the best!

Well I think that's it for now. Time to go clean up my dinner dishes and get ready for bed. We're almost halfway through the week...WOOHOO! :)

Enough!

Monday, May 14, 2012

I had a great time this weekend. I got to see some of my very best friends...and we had an amazing few days together. During that time I didn't have a chance to workout (although we did dance Saturday night) and of course I didn't exactly focus on staying within my calorie range. But somethings are way more important...like seeing the people I love most.

Unfortunately the hardest part of having everyone together is having to say goodbye. That's been my true challenge. I've been feeling very down since they left and I've been taking it out on myself. Well I'm telling myself right now that enough is enough! My good friend at work commented that I've come so far...I can't self destruct and ruin everything I've worked so hard for. She is absolutely right. I can't undo all my weeks of hard work. I promised myself I'd never go back there and I WON'T.

So tonight I had a healthy dinner (steamed clams, steamed broccoli, and cantaloupe) and did my at home T-N-T routine. I also stocked up on my healthy lunch/dinner foods for the rest of the week. I'm going to Zumba and T-N-T tomorrow and I have an extra Zumba event on Friday this week. I'm seeing another really good friend next week in Hershey, PA so I've got to start looking forward to that. No use feeling sad over what's in the past when there is always so much more to look forward to in the future.

Hopefully someday I'll be closer to all of my friends so we can be together more. Until then, I'll keep working to keep myself healthy so I can be with them for a long time.

Happy Monday...and here's to an even happier Tuesday!

No cherry on top...or ice cream below...

Wednesday, May 09, 2012

Well tonight was the first night since I've started my successful journey that I went to Friendly's. I used to go all the time (the waitresses recognize me...sad) but I've been afraid to go back. When I realized I hadn't planned well for dinner tonight I decided to give it a shot. Well I'm sure I didn't order the healthiest meal, but there was one BIG success...I DIDN'T order ice cream! And good thing, cause I was FULL after dinner. Ice cream is one of my favorite things...and to resist it is a big deal for me. I actually gave myself a pep talk and practiced saying no before I went out (a tactic I learned about in D.A.R.E. in 5th grade).

I'm not sure I got the calories right, but I have a lot of leeway because I ate really well the rest of the day. Again it's amazing how much you can eat when you only drink water and when you up your fitness minutes! I'm still having a hard time most days even reaching the low end of my calorie range. I don't mind though. I'm down 16 pounds (from my heaviest, not just in the past few weeks) and I'm feeling great. Hopefully I can keep it up until it feels normal, not like something I'm working at constantly.

Ok gotta get a few more things done in the apartment before bed. We're almost to Friday! YAY!!!! :)

Scale/General Chatter

Tuesday, May 08, 2012

How do these weigh ins come up so quickly?? This past week I was a little less active, so I'm not expecting to lose as much as I'm expecting to maintain. That would be fine for now. :) I know I can't drop tons of weight every week and I know if I chip away at it slowly, it will be much easier to maintain in the future. (Still I have fingers crossed for even a little loss...)

Well I'm still on my epic quest to have my apartment ready for company this weekend. This will be the first time some of these folks have seen my apartment, and the first time we've all been together in a while, so I want everything to be in tip top shape. That being said, I went on quite the laundry adventure today. I washed everything from the couch cover to my gym bag. I have a very bad sense of smell, so I always go overboard on laundry...just to be safe. I've also been staying up way to late cleaning and organizing, but it's all starting to look fantastic! I know I'm going to be so happy when it's all done...and when my apartment is clean I feel like I have more time for other fun things.

I'm actually hoping the rain will let up soon so I can get some more skating in. I finally got to roller blade the other day and it felt so good! It's one of those active things that I don't do to burn calories...I do it because I love it. Not every activity has to be about the calorie count...that's just no way to live. Gotta find that thing you just love to do for yourself. :)

Speaking of things I love, I finally got my den (craft room) ready to set up my sewing/embroidery machine! So excited to do some projects! I'm way out of practice, but I'm sure it will come back to me with time. Everyone might be getting homemade Christmas gifts this year. :P

Well I better sum this up...still have to put my laundry away before bed! Goodnight! Have a nice Wednesday! We're almost halfway to the weekend! YAY!!! :)

    funny, I was remarking how manageable it was to clean up our house for dinner guests tonight too! Although, I'm hoping that we'll be able to hang outside!!!

I used to roller skate allllllll the time! I've always enjoyed it, but it's hard to find skates that don't cost a fortune these days & I have to drive to your house to find somewhere good to skate...outside anyway!! Be careful!!! ALWAYS take your cell with you just incase!

Keep up the GREAT work!!!
