July 9 Goals

Friday, July 09, 2010

Today was weigh in day. I have lost 2 pounds since Tuesday, mostly water weight I am sure. But I will take what I can get.

As for my goals from yesterday, well I only got them half done...#1 and #2 completed. Calories were just over 1200 and we went swimming for about 1 1/2 hours (of course that was a lot of playing and about 16 laps of real swimming). I only got 6 glasses of water yesterday. I guess all the water in the pool made me not feel thirsty! lol I don't know, I just wasn't vigilant with it. I did not decide on my meals until this morning. And I didn't get caught up on my show. I didn't realize I was that far behind. I was behind 6 shows. I got 4 of them watched, but not the last two. Guess I will have to work on that tomorrow probably! lol

So for today's goals:
1. Exercise for 20 minutes
2. Stay under 1500 calories
3. Drink 10 glasses of water
4. Decide on my meals for tomorrow
5. Complete at least 5 scrapbook pages

Hope everyone has a terrific Friday!


July 8 Goals

Thursday, July 08, 2010

Okay day two and the one where I am REALLY starting to focus on this again. Yesterday I asked DS to go on a walk with me around the block, we went around twice, which was 1.2 miles. It was kindof hot out and the poor boy was sweating horribly and the gnats were annoying him. (I guess they like the way he smells all sweaty! ROFL Cause they don't bother me at all! lol) I know what I am doing today (doing chores this morning, taking DS swimming and then letting him paint his monster trucks that he got for his birthday, part of the time while I am speed scrapping!), tommorow (making sure my meals are planned today for tomorrow so that I can scrapbook all day and not want to just order pizza for dinner) and Saturday (work in the morning and then do something with DS in the afternoon, I haven't quite figured out what yet though). My meals are all planned for today I have about 150 calories left to do with as I please.

So for today:
1. Exercise for 30 minutes (we are going to go swimming so I will do laps)
2. Stay under 1300 calories
3. Drink 10 glasses of water
4. Decide on my meals for tomorrow
5. This one is frivilous, but I want to do it anyway! lol Catch up on one of my shows that I have missed several weeks due to being on vacation. lol

So have a great day everyone! Make it count!!

July 7 Goals

Wednesday, July 07, 2010

Well it has been almost a month since I last blogged about my goals. It has been a delightful month. Unfortunately my weight has suffered because of it. So starting today I am determined to get back on track, back to my goals, back to exercising and eating healthy. I can do it!

Okay so I know I am SUPER late in posting this for today, but I knew my goals I just didn't have time to blog about it.

1. Exercise for 30 mins
2. Get my plan together for the next couple of days
3. Decide on my meals for tomorrow

No goals today other than packing to leave for the trip and getting things done around the house.

Good news, I am down to 162.4 this morning!! Only .4 to meet my goal for the month!!! Of course, I am leaving on two trips and I just pray I can make wise decisions so I can keep it off!

My goal while I am gone is:
1. Get 10 glasses of water a day
2. Make wise food decisions
3. Get some type of exercise in over the normal vacation walking (even if it is just strength training) each day.

Have a good week and I will check back in when I can. :-)

June 9 Goals

Wednesday, June 09, 2010

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

For today:
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!
