May 28 Goals

Friday, May 28, 2010

Completed all goals from yesterday except for the strength training. I don't know why it is so hard for me to remember to do it, but it is. I used to be in such a good habit I would do them Tues, Thurs and Sat, but I got out of it and can't seem to get back in it. I actually did 30 mins of exercise yesterday so that is good.

For today:
1. 10 glasses of water
2. At least 15 mins of exercise
3. Stay under 1400 calories
4. Complete at least 5 scrapbook pages

Talk to you tomorrow!


May 27 Goals

Thursday, May 27, 2010

Quick run down on yesterday's goals...I think I only got 8 glasses of water, but I am not sure. I stayed under my calorie range. I did not get any exercise in. I can't see to get a rouine going this week. Hopefully I can figure it out though. I got the cards done, and got all 4 addressed and ready to be mailed. I didn't get to bed until after 11pm some time, we were watching the Lost Finale that we had recorded. I did get all the church visits completed. But did not wrap DS's birthday gifts.

For today:
1. 10 glasses of water
2. Get DS's gifts wrapped
3. Strength training
4. At least 15 mins of exercise
5. Go to temple

That's it. The rest of the day we spent with our son for his birthday. :-)

Yesterday sucked emoticon I guess my weigh in set the tone for the day. Because after I got home from work it only got worse. I was mad, frustrated, stressed, and just all around angry. Without going into detail, basically I had it out with my child, I had it out with my husband and I even had it out with my dog! :-( Nothing went right, everything I said, did, and felt were bad, wrong, angry. I was grateful for Bunco last night so I could get away, but when I got home it started all over again. For the first time in our married life I went to bed mad and didn't solve it. (I have gone to bed mad before, but never stayed in bed, we have always gotten up and dealt with the problems before we actually went to sleep.)

I completed #1 and #2 yesterday. I was at 800 calories when I left for Bunco last night and there is no way I ate more than 500 calories while I was there. #3, I thought of it before I went to Bunco but didn't want to be all sweaty so I was going to do it when I got home, but since I had it out with my husband and the dog then I ended up chosing not to do it, I was too mad. While I should have used that for fuel to get it out, I chose to just go to bed instead. I didn't care at that point. #4 Mickey and Minnie are done, and even my nephew's card is done! #5 I got to bed about 10:22pm, considering we didn't even leave Bunco until 10pm it was pretty good. #6 I did really well at Bunco, the girl hosting had mostly healthy foods there so that really helped me out. I had watermelon, cantalope, and then these crackers that had a veggie cream cheese spread on them with a bunch of veggies on top. It was sooooooooooooo good! I had two of them and I am so getting the recipe from her! lol I did have one cupcake and one girl scout thin mint cookie. I should have chose one or the other, but since I only had one of each, I gave myself a break.

Even with my super stressful day, my weight is back down to 165.1. I just don't get it.

Today's goals:
1. 10 glasses of water
2. Stay under 1300 calories
3. Exercise for at least 30 minutes
4. Finish my nieces birthday cards and get the cards for two SIL's birthday ready to be mailed (I hope that is everyone for this month! UGH! lol)
5. Get to bed by 10:30pm
6. Get church visits completed
7. Wrap DS's birthday gifts

Oh boy this list is long. I know I can do it though! I can put my energy into accomplishing my tasks so that I can become a better person, so I can have less stress, which in turn will help me have less angry and hopefully less bad days because of it. I know I will still have stress and bad days, but I also think that sometimes I have these bad days because of how I feel about myself. Most days I feel decent but there are still days when those worthless thoughts sneak in and take over. I know I can do this, I have to do this. I must overcome these things. I must not let my past and the way I was raised rule my life. I must forgive and I must learn to love myself, even with all my faults. I can't do any more than just keep trying and know that this happens less and less, I really am getting so much better, but sometimes it just rears it's ugly head and I get caught in the downward spiral of frustration and angry. I pray today will be a much better day. I pray that I can forgive my child, husband, dog but most importantly me. I can't change what happened yesterday, but I can learn from it and vow to do better. I can do this. I can.

    Don't let a bad day get you down. You rock!

P.S. The gain could be STRESS-related...

May 25 Goals

Tuesday, May 25, 2010

I don't get it. I don't get it. My weight has gone up to 165.7 today. I got my water in, I was just over my 1300 calorie self imposed limit (my actual range goes up to 1550), I do admit I only got about 5 mins of actual exercise, I got the birthday card done and got to bed at 9:58. What gives? Even my sodium was only 1800 mg. So I wasn't overly high on that. I am very frustrated today. I didn't even have a freaking leftover cupcake yesterday!!!!!! I don't know what I am doing wrong this week to have it go up each day since Saturday :-(

Here are my goals for today
1. 10 glasses of water
2. Stay under 1300 calories
3. Strength training--50 wall pushups, 50 sit ups, 50 squats, and 25 for each leg of leg lifts
4. Work on making Mickey and Minnie cricut cuts for my other nephew and niece's birthday
5. Get to bed by 10pm
6. Tonight is Bunco so my goal there is to put healthy food on my plate and/or only one cookie/brownie/cake (whatever the one naughty thing is).

I certainly hope tomorrow's morning weigh in is much better than today's was. Like I said I am very frustrated and down on myself right now. Other than not getting the full 15 mins of exercise I did everything right. :-( I know exercise is a big thing, but one day is not almost a 1/2 a pound when I only had 1357 calories. It just doesn't make sense which is why I am frustrated. Hope your day goes better than mine has.


May 24 Goals

I met all my goals for yesterday including setting up my food for today. :-) However, my weight is back up to 165. :-( I must do better over the weekends, I am going to chalk this up to my DS's birthday, but still I have to figure out better plans for the weekends in general as I typically allow myself to have freebie days and that is why the weight keeps going back up and then I fight all week to get it down. Then the weekend rolls around again and I start the cycle all over again. I need to figure out a better way to stop this up and down cycle. :-(

So to again go for the weight loss today I am going to:
1. 10 glasses of water
2. Stay under 1300 calories
3. Get at least 15 mins of exercise
4. Get b-day card done for my nephew
5. Get to bed by 10pm

Hope everyone has a great day! Make it count, gotta get the scale going in the right direction again. :-)
