Sept 28 Goals

Tuesday, September 28, 2010

I am making this quick because #1 I am late and #2 I am leaving for Bunco in less than 30 mins! lol

I completed all of yesterdays goals except to find a home for my cuttlebug! lol Still need to find a home. I really need to get some cleaning/organizing going on in our office and then maybe I could find a home for my cuttlebug! lol

Today's goals:
1. Drink 12 glasses of water (make sure I have 2 at Bunco tonight)
2. Stay under 1500 calories (only have 1 of each item that I REALLY want at Bunco)
3. Exercise for at least 20 mins
4. Household chore: Take care of two loads of laundry and price stuff for the women's meeting at church next month.

I really should have done more today but since I ran errands or was at DS's school until almost 1pm I really didn't have a ton of time to do much else.

I am going to start by addressing something...Sandhill5--my mom told me if I didn't have anything nice to say to say nothing at all. I don't think your comment was appropriate (Sorry everyone I already deleted the comment because it was rude), especially to say to someone you don't even know. Or do you think that hiding behind a private page makes it okay to say things like that? What you said did not help me or anyone else in anyway. For your knowledge, I know what I am doing, I have been on SP long enough and lost enough weight to know what I am doing. And if I want to have a piece of cake (I didn't say what size it was BTW so how do you know it wasn't a "1/2 a piece"?????) I will do so if it is within my calorie range. I really don't think that is any of your business what size it is.

Now, on to my day yesterday. I got 10 glasses of water, ummm, I stayed under the 1400 (unfortunately I didn't realize it until today that I was WAAAY under...I only had 1110...ooops), I walked/jog/ran , whatever you want to call it and a combo of it, my 5k on the road. I got done in around 48 mins! I am not sure of my exact time because I don't have a stopwatch thing...well not until today when I bought one at walmart...so I had to use my cell phone, which I think in some ways was good and some was bad....bad because I don't know my exact time. Good because then I wasn't counting down the seconds until I could stop running. I would just say run for 3 mins, which is such and such time and then I would run and every once in awhile I would check my cell phone to see if it was time yet. So sometimes it was over and sometimes it was really over. Also I would tell myself I couldn't stop running until I reached X point. I was happy with it. I got all my household chores on the list done.

Today's goals:
1. Drink 10 glasses of water
2. Stay under 1400 calories
3. Exercise for at least 30 mins.
4. Household chores: grocery shopping and laundry

Also today I will be going to the temple. Should be nice. :-)

    GOOD JOB!!!!! And I agree about the inappropriate comment. SP is supposed to be about encouraging each other. Not put downs. I've dealt with that a time or two in the time I've been here. Keep on doing what you are doing. YOU ROCK!!!!!

Sept 22 Goals

Wednesday, September 22, 2010

Yesterday was kindof a stinky day again. Maybe I need an attitude adjustment! lol Work is just tense lately. Then I get home to my child getting a red card and again not going his school work done. A few other things happened with him last night and I was glad I could get out of the house to go to card club. I thought I did well but then I tried to calculate/estimate things today and I was way over on my calories. Bummer :-( I drank 13 glasses of water yesterday though! No exercise, because of the issues with DS I ended up grounding him for the day so that meant that I couldn't go for a walk or to the Y because he can't stay home by himself and by the time DH got home it was time to go to card club. I did get my avon orders put together and finally got that last batch of zucchini bread made and everyone loved it at card club! lol :-)

For today *sigh*:
1. Drink 10 glasses of water
2. Stay under 1400 calories
3. Walk/jog/run 5k on road
4. Household chores: finish lunchbox notecards, package them up, package up return Avon, and go to post office

Here's hoping for a better day at school for my DS as I am extremely frustrated with him. We had these same problems last year and I am at a complete loss. I don't know what to do to get him to do his work during school and stop talking to his neighbors. It is very frustrating for a mom who was the perfect student, I never had problems, if I talked it was after I got my work done, I was a straight A student, I never got sent home notes from school. I did everything I was supposed to and was usually a teacher favorite. And to have a child that is the exact opposite is very hard for me and makes me feel like I am failing as a parent. I don't know how to get him to understand he needs to get his work done. I have told him this is his job and what would happen if mommy or daddy did what he was doing while we were at work and he said we would get fired. He knows that and understands that yet still does not apply himself. I wish the judo focus were rubbing off on him faster than it is. It seems we have one good practice and then the next one he is back to not listening again. I am just a very frustrated mom right now and the stress of work and lack of sleep isn't helping.

Okay I am going to sign off for now, I could go on and on about this, but need to stop now for my sanity. Hope everyone (including myself) has a better day today.


Sept 21 Goals

Tuesday, September 21, 2010

I think I did pretty good yesterday. I just need to keep it up the rest of the week and through the weekend! UGH! lol I drank somewhere in the neighborhood of 13 glasses of water. I know for certain I drank 11, but then I drank from my new water bottle and I have NO IDEA how many cups of water it holds. I keep saying I am going to use a measuring cup and figure it out, but I haven't done that yet. As for food, I did only eat the things I really wanted, but can't say I only had 1/2 a serving, I wasn't stuffed so that was good and I only had one piece of cake. This afternoon I went to the Y and did my 5k. I did part walking and part running/jogging. I did it in 49:45. While that isn't the fastest out there by any means, it was under my goal of 1 hour so I am happy with it. I just need to still do it on the road before Friday. Maybe on Wednesday. My household chores got derailed last night when we had to spend almost 2 hours on DS's homework. He just gets so lazy and instead of writing his letters legibly he just scribbles an "a" looks like an "o" and an "i" instead of the letter "a". And since that was the majority of the page we had to erase and re do again and again. Plus it was all the work he had not finished in class for the last couple of school days so it took FOREVER! In between I tried to work on the lunchbox notecards, but didn't quite get them finished.

So for today:
1. Drink 10 glasses of water
2. Stay under 1500 calories...card club again tonight so I am planning on eating only 1100 before and that gives me 400 calories at my disposal to use for card club if necessary.
3. Go for a walk around the block...not a full-blown 5k, but maybe a 2k and just walking.
4. Household chores: Put together Avon orders and make last batch of chocolate zucchini bread before the zucchini goes bad.

I think that is enough, have a good day everyone! :-)
