is tomorrow! I am walking it with my coworker L who decided to do it with me since her plans for the weekend fell through. She doesn't want to run at all, I hope maybe she'll jog a litlte with me! If not I'm okay walking it with her. My other coworker has been training really hard to run it so now I feel more excited about going since I have a walking buddy.
I am mostly feeling better from my weird, not-strep, illness. Just a tiny sore throat now. I'm not sure what it was but I'm happy it's going away.
We have a busy weekend coming up and I am looking forward to getting back on track with my workouts and exercise by next week. I weighed myself yesterday, it was 194.4, which irritated me as I've been eating soup, yogurt, and fruit all week. Low-cal soup, too, lol. But then I got a bit of a period at work so that sort of explains the gain. I checked again today and I was at 192- lowest I've seen in a while! I'll take it, and hope it stays there or lower for Monday's weigh-in.
This weekend I have the 5K, then we have some house stuff (insulating) to do. I need to go looking for costume supplies for Spencer and myself and start working on those. I also need to get baking supplies as I am baking whoopie pies for the Keene YMCA's booth at the pumpkin festival next weekend. Also have to fit in homework, maybe some grocery shopping, and shopping for a jacket. Plus a drive to Troy (about 30 minutes away) to pick up our truck which will finally be ready for inspection after several months being "illegal" to drive lol.
Anyway, I saved some leftover Hamburger Helper from dinner for today's lunch, which I know isn't that healthy...at least it was made with skim milk and lean ground beef haha. Then it's more yogurt and any other soft foods I can find since it does seem to be keeping the sore throat at bay. Supposed to be very cold today... not excited at all.

Yesterday I left work at 9 am, sick with a fever, headache, and backache. My fever finally broke at about 5 am this morning and I worked today but felt poopy- very lethargic and my throat is SOOO sore... I ate mainly soft things today and they still hurt like hell to swallow.
Anyway, my exercise is on hold until I'm feeling a bit better. I am trying to convince my friend to walk the 5K with me on Saturday. I can definitely walk it, but running it is probably out.
Today I weighed in (skipped it yesterday) at 193.8 which was the same as the previous week. Eating no solids should be good for my diet, at least... haha.
Anyway, that's all for now. Time to snuggle with my baby bean.

this week has been really bad, diet-wise. I ate out five times! What the f?? WHY? I knew better. Knew I shouldn't, should be stronger than the temptation... but, I wasn't. I'd gained 1.5-2 lbs by Thursday, but when I weighed in this morning I was 193.6 again, so I'm crossing my fingers that my weight tomorrow is either 193.something or lower for my weigh-in.
Today we did a big grocery shop and I am eager to get back on track tomorrow. I saved $43 with coupons! I'm proud of myself. I enjoy couponing but only to save on things we actually need or will use. My sister texted me some good links (she's a pro at saving money!) that I'm going to check out before our next trip to the grocery store. The store I like to shop at also has gas rewards so right now I have $.60/gallon to use when we get gas tomorrow.
I have a really bad toothache right now, it came out of nowhere at about 10 am this morning... the left front tooth on the bottom. It hurts to eat, breathe, touch it, really just a constant pain. I have no idea what to do, what caused it, if I should be worried, or what. It made lunch unenjoyable... I'd bought a flatbread pizza and ended up only eating 1 piece. It wasn't that good, to be honest, despite Rachael Ray touting it as "the best frozen pizza"... just one more reason to hate her, lol. I ended up having three pieces of toasted bread and butter sprinkled with garlic salt. Yummy but not the lunch I imagined. It just hurts too much to eat. Maybe the pain will help with my diet, lol.
I've felt very unmotivated. It rained all week aside from Friday and this weekend and I didn't exercise much at all. The 5K is next weekend and I have no idea if I'm even doing it. I have been unmotivated... it seems like all my SparkBuddies have become as inactive here as I am which is disappointing and sad for me, since I really do need motivation and support. My hubby has been off-track as well and is part of the reason I've done poorly this week, but I can't blame him, really, because he's not controlling me- I am. He bought a ton of nuts (which I can't eat at work, grrrr) because he wants to try some sort of detox and he swears they involve eating nuts. I told him nuts are high in fat and calories and to be careful. lol.
Hopefully this coming week is better. I know I can get back on track if I really try, and I am going to because I want and need this. 3 pounds lost is not nearly enough to make me happy!
