Well, I stayed the same today. Better than I could have hoped for, really. Husband pointed out, too, that with the bootcamp videos, I'm doing much more strength training than I have been, so that could be affecting things. I am going to reweigh tomorrow, though, just to see what happens. Truthfully, though, I'd be okay with staying the same after the week I've had!!

I did the bootcamp video yesterday, the hips, butt and thighs one.
Wowza my hips are aching today. That was the first one that I can actually FEEL the next day. Ouchies. The fact that I did it right after my fabulous Abs class probably doesnt help either. But ouch.

So yesterday, I had an epiphany that maybe I was low on iron due to the impending doom of my period next week. So for dinner, I had an 8 oz sirloin steak, corn on the cob, and two little slices of garlic bread. Even after all of that, I WAS STILL HUNGRY. How is that possible? I don't understand whats going on with my body this week, but its making me very nervous for my weigh in tomorrow.
As of this morning, I was up .8, however I did have quite a lot of sodium (mostly due to the seasoning on the steak) yesterday.
So tomorrow is weigh in, and I'm determined to make today a good day. For breakfast I had some grapes and cottage cheese, and when I got to school they were having a baby/bridal shower in the library which means donuts and bagels and goodies. I should have avoided it all together, but I opted for 1/4 of a bagel with a 1/2 tbsp of cream cheese. That was only about 113 calories, and since my original breakfast wasnt too bad, it put me at about 247 for breakfast. For lunch I brought ravioli and some assorted goodies, and by the time I get home tonight I will have eaten less than 800 calories. I am going to bring home Subway for dinner, and that will put me, with chips, right around my minimum for the day, slightly under to allow for one small snack later in the evening. I hope this keeps me full.
I'm hoping that by planning out my day ahead of time I will stay on track today, and maybe shake something for my weigh in tomorrow. I know I need to drink tons of water, and husband and I are going to work out tonight, so that will help. If I have a good weigh in, I'm hoping that will set me straight into the next week so I can get out of this funk that I've been in this week. I hope that if it is a bad weigh in, the same thing will happen. We'll see I guess. I really just don't know what to expect. I'm trying to be optimistic, though.

I've been doing some extra working out this week to try to repent for my "sins" of going over my calories for a few days.
It's actually due to my husband, because now that we've started exercising in the mornings together (hooray btw!) he wants to do it ALL THE TIME. So last night, after he got home from work, we worked out for another 20 minutes! As of today I'm over my fitness goal by like 200-some calories. And I still have to work out tomorrow morning. Hopefully this will counter my bad eating towards the beginning of this week.
On the flip side, my eating has gotten better. Yesterday I was still a tad on the high side after lunch, but then I got home, ate a low cal dinner, and then still had enough calories left for a snack of fat free pretzels and some grapes.
My dog is trying to type right now so I guess its time for me to go.

So today ended up to be okay in the end.
I went to my fitness class, and I ended up burning 426 calories. Last week I burned 486, but today was still good. I feel it anyway. I got home, and my husband had a coworker over to show her how to use some software. She ended up bringing Little Caesar's pizza. But I said no. I ate an egg sandwich instead. I did have 2 of the wings, only because there were two left and they were both full. So I just finished them off. Thats not too bad though, they're only 60 calories per wing.
So I'm feeling okay about today. I might have some low fat ice cream or something later on tonight if I'm feeling like a treat. And I kind of am.
I'm definitely tired though. And a bit antsy to get exercising in the morning again. When I don't do cardio in the morning my day seems so much longer. Husband wants to exercise with me again tomorrow :)
So now I am relaxing watching "You've Got Mail" and I will probably be asleep by 8 or 8:30. I dig it.
