My weight is still going in the wrong direction. My guess is it is a major combo effect. #1 I haven't gotten any exercise since Friday or Saturday (I can't remember right now). #2 I have gotten very little sleep the last 4 nights or so. #3 I haven't been getting as much water as I should. My eating has still be really good, so that is not the problem at all. Which goes into yesterday...They had a chicken salad thing for dinner....spinach, chicken, mandrin oranges, dried cranberries, peanuts, and some type of dressing (which probably had too much sodium), then one of the ladies made homemade whole wheat bread (it was DELICIOUS) and whole wheat angel food cake (which was absolutely heavenly). I already told her I wanted to recipe so I am going to get them both as soon as possible! But I only had one serving of salad, 1 slice of the bread and 1 piece of the angel food cake with a little bit of (I think homemade) whipped topping. So I definitely did not go over my calorie range. I only got 9 glasses of water (they had lemons in the pitchers they used at the church and I really do not like lemon in my water so I only drank 1 glass while I was there). I didn't get my strength training done. I did finish the last birthday card, I have the stamp and my return address label on it, just need to address it to the birthday girl. :-) DS got his thank you cards done. I finished the cuts for card club, just need to figure out the base and possibly a ribbon for the card. I got into bed around 9:45 but did not go to sleep until about 11pm, I was on the phone with my mom for about 45 mins. So there you have it. A 50/50 day. lol
1. Drink 10 glasses of water
2. Stay under 1400 calories
3. Exercise at least 20 minutes
4. Finish cards for card club
5. Pack DS's things for the trip (before he gets home from school)
6. Decide on meals for tomorrow
7. Get to bed by 10:30pm
I need the sleep; I am exhausted and I was so out of it this morning that when the alarm went off at 4am I got up, out of bed and in the shower by 4:04. Now of course that is what normal people do, but on days I work that is super hard for me to do, so I set my alarma 1/2 hour before I actually need to get up. It wasn't until I was stepping in the shower that I realized it was 1/2 before I really needed to get up. I thought about getting ready and then taking a little cat nap BUT I was afraid I wouldn't wake up to come to work so I read instead.
I can do this. I can work through the problems, I can get my exercise in, I can continue to eat healthy. I am going to have the scale going the right direction again tomorrow. :-) Only 3 more days until we leave on vacation and I can hardly wait to get away from the daily grind!!! And only 2 more weeks until I get to see my very dear friends (sissers) from Spark People! That will be a welcome relief to not even have to worry about anyone but ME! lol Not my problem if the child doesn't get a bath, not my problem if my DS eats like crap, not my problem if the dog pees on the carpet! ROFL!! NOT MY PROBLEM, I will be enjoying time with my friends and scrapping and laughing and just being away. Until tomorrow have a good day! Make it count!
