Last month my goal was to reach onederland. But due to the fact that I went on vacation and had a few stumbles along the way I wasn't able to meet that goal, even though I did lose 5 pounds. For which I am very grateful. This month however I am DETERMINED to get to onederland. (My goal is really 195, but if I can get to 199.9 I will be extremely happy!) I have not been there for at least 10 years. As of April first I was at 204.8. This week I have worked out every day so far (still need to do it for today, but there are several hours before bedtime, but I am not waiting too long, just gotta let dinner get settled). I am trying to do a different type of exercise each day. So far, Monday I did Biggest Loser 1 High Intensity Cardio Workout, Tuesday I did Sweatin' to the Oldies 1, Wednesday I went on a walk for 30 minutes, Thursday I did DDR (Dance, Dance Revolution--man that is the sweatin' machine!! lol), and Friday I did BodyFlex+. Today, not sure what I am going to do, but something that is for sure. As of yesterday, I was down 1 pound to 203.8! YES!! Just 4 pounds to meet onederland again! lol Today I am down another .4, hopefully that will stick. We'll see in the morning!.

Well I have done it again today, did yesterday too. Yesterday after cleaning out the garage (it looks so good! at least compared to what it used to, which was a major disaster! lol), it was already 1pm and our cupboards were a little on the bareside as far as lunch items go not to mention my back was killing from all the lifting, moving, twisting, etc and I didn't feel like making anything. I said, "oh boy those Big Mac's are calling my name." He said, "let's go then." See they are on sale right now here 2 for $3 and every time I drive by McDonald's (which is basically every time I go anywhere because it is on the main road by my house) there is their HUGE sign in the window blaring, "BIG MAC 2 for $3!" Which says to me, "BUY ME I AM CHEAP!!!! (And yummy!)" Yes I love Big Macs and Quarter Pounders with Cheese! My favorite fast food. So it is very hard to drive by all the time and not stop and get one (or 2 since they are 2 for $3!) I even told my husband those better go off sale soon or I am going to have to buy them! lol So back to my story. Yesterday after he said let's go I told him, no because we had already been eating no so great lately with going to Disney and then Easter and just everything. So I was able to go in and see some leftovers from the night before and heat those up instead, whew, fended off the first attack.
The second one came today, wewere out and about running errands. Then we took DS to the park to ride his trike because our street and driveway are slanted and he would be like a runaway train waiting to crash if we let him ride on our street right now (he is only 3). Then after the park DH has an appt we needed to go to. Well by the time we got done it was already 1:15 and we still needed to stop at the store because we had forgotten to buy something we needed to make dinner tonight when we were there this morning. Anyway, by the time we got done there it was already 1:45 and DS's naptime is 2pm!! AHHHHH again!! lol Driving by Mickey D's, would have been so easy (and I am sure yummy) to go through the drive-thru and just pick up my Big Macs, but I didn't even say anything to DH, who was driving, because he probably really would have gone there! And then I would have been mad at myself after.
I am not sure what I am going to do ultimately. Part of me really wants to have a Big Mac and I thought when I had the hamburger at the Strawberry Festival it would have curbed that craving, but it didn't it kindof left me unfulfilled in the taste department! lol So, I am still craving it. So do I go ahead and give in and let hubby eat one and I eat one and work it in my calories for the day (and probably exercise extra) or do I just keep resisting until they go off sale and then I won't care to get them anymore??? I am just not sure right now. But I know I am going to try to at least resist until after the first of the month so I can make my goal weight, I hope or at least come closer to it than I am right now and probably will be if I eat one. I guess only time will really tell, but if someone has some great advise I would love to hear it!! lol

Today we went to the Strawberry Festival. It is like a county fair. We had sooo much fun!! My DS (who is 3) said his favorite thing was the HUGE slide! He went on it probably close to 10 times!! lol Thank heavens we bought the wristbands. Last time we went to a "fair/carnival" we only had $30 to spend. We didn't know what he would like to do and so we just bought some tickets, well we ran out of tickets and money before he was tired of riding the slide. I cried because he wanted to ride that and some of the others so badly and we had to tell him no. So I vowed if we decided to go again we would plan ahead and save money so we could buy the wristbands. So that is what we did today.
I planned my eating earlier to not take in a ton of calories, but still eat so my body wasn't deprived. I looked at Calorieking.com to see how much things were that I wanted. I decided on a cheeseburger, an elephant ear and a strawberry shortcake. I did have a few of my husband's french fries, but only a few. And the elephant ear and strawberry shortcake all three of us split. I still ended up within my calorie range. So for a one day splurge I was okay. My DH and I were talking as we walked past all the food stands and he said to me, "it's a good thing you are here or I would go from booth to booth buying a little of everything!" I said, "I know, I kindof want to too, but we have come so far to mess it up now." So we just kept walking. I got in a little over 10,500 steps today!! YAY, that is the most I have done in one day EVER!
We had lots of fun and lots of memories. Can't wait to scrapbook them!

Don't you just love it when someone that doesn't even know you are losing weight notices????
What a great day I have had today! When I weighed this morning I was down to 209.8!! Which means, I met my 10% goal weight! YAY--scrapbook supplies here I come!! lol
Anyway, this morning at work my supervisor said to me, "oh hey, I wanted to tell you Yadee (her sister who works in another department where I work) came over Wednesday to talk to you." My super said, "At the ceremony she looked at me surprised and I knew she wanted to tell me something. " She then told me Yadee came over and asked where I was. My super told her that I had just come in for the ceremony that morning and had already left. Yadee told my super, "Michele looks great! I didn't know she was trying to lose weight!" I can I just say "YES!!!"????????? I was so excited that someone that DIDN'T know I was trying to lose weight noticed! Everyone else that has said they noticed knows about it. I always feel like when people know and say they notice they are just trying to be nice to get you to keep doing it and hopefully eventually they really will notice! lol But when someone doesn't know and makes a comment about how great you look it is just the best feeling!! It certainly makes all the sweat and tears worth it! (no blood, at least not so far! lol)
I hope to continue to get those comments on a regular basis soon. But hey, I will take the one I got!
