goals for this week

Monday, September 28, 2009

well this past week my eating really was not in a happy place so I need to get that in check this week. I set some goals for myself and I really need to stick to them. Im also feeling kinda guilty because I had about 3 or 4 cups of theater pop corn yesterday.

anyway, here are my goals

* plan out meals for entire day in advance, including 3 meals & 2-3 snacks

* Drink at least 8 glasses water

* wake up early when hubby gets up for work and exercise (40 minutes)

* Messure all food eaten

* No nibbling in between meals


Today I got up early and got my exercise in, I have planned out what Im gonig to eat today, I just need to stick with it.

wish me luck for the rest of the week~

    FADE, that is a good idea about doing the blogs for accountablity. Maybe I will do that.

I totaly get it about the every action has a reaction thing. .... like at the movies yesterday and eating all that popcorn.

woke up late + was rushed getting the kids fed and together = forgeting to eat breakfast + going to the movies and sitting next to "I need my popcorn" husband + hungry = shoveling handfulls of oil ridden popcorn into my mouth = guilt + stomach ache!

If I just had of woken up a little earlier and eaten breakfast I would have been good durring the movie and had the will not to eat the popcorn.

Funny how life gets in your ways sometimes, I will just have to work around it and keep going.

Thanks for your comment

    I hope it all goes ok for you! Remember that you have as MUCH determination & ability as you need to get this accomplished & lose weight. It's just that doubt + distraction gets in the way & makes you forget that every action (good or bad) has a following consequence. I totally believe you can make this week epically successful. :) Good luck!

Oh & if you struggle with hitting goals this week, you could always update this blog (or write another) every day or so+ say how well you met or missed them...that way it would be a bit of accountability.

    I will be trying these shortly!!!! They sound delish and I really like the idea of not deep frying them. My daughter loves the ones that we get at Texas Roadhouse so I will let her be the judge. Thanks for giving us the recipe

    That's cool, but most of the time the products you find in the freezer section don't work well in the oven, just the deep fryer. I try to stay away from deep fried foods as much as possible.

Oh how I miss corn nuggets though. Mmmm a deep fried food I could eat buckets of. Being healthy is hard lol. But worth it.

  Actually I found some grocery stores that sell them in the frozen section all ready breaded. All you have to do is just drop em in the deep fryer. They were called "Mikes Fried Pickles" and were better than most I've had.

back on track

Current weight - 224.0

well I did pretty well this past week. I ate very close to my points every day and exercised sevral days. I lost two pounds when I weighed in this morning. Thats good and almost makes up for the fact that I gained 3 last week when I was sick.

Im feeling much better this week, I still cough a bit here and there mainly because of nasal drip.... yuck! All and All though I feel 100% better.... Yay antibiotics!

I feeling really good and not having many problems staying on track or wanting to eat all the time so hopefully that trend will continue into this next week. I am really wanting to have a few really really good weeks so I can reach my goal by the first of the year of getting down to 200 pounds or under. I wouldent mind fitting better in the pants I have either.... right now only one pair fits ok ... not good, just ok.

Im really sick of only being able to wear yoga pants because my jeans dont fit right!


well here is to an awesome week, for me and anyone eles who may read this!

It don't count if you don't write it down!

Saturday, September 12, 2009

This past week has been really rough and I did gain a little bit of weight, around 2 pounds or so. Im not sure the exact number because I dident write my weight down on my chart to track it. I really dont want to count it because I dident get a fair chance this week because of being sick. If I write it down it will just make me sad anyway. I have convenently got into a mind set where if I dont write my weight down on the chart then it dosent count. I am still under 225 as far as I am concerned untill I write it on the chart.

Well I got some antibiotics from the doctor. She thinks I got a virus and then it turned into a bac infection. :-( ..... I also got a prescription for some really good cough syrup with codine in it but the doctor forgot to sign it and they cant fill perscriptions like codine with out the signture. :-( office is closed till monday so Im out of luck with that. Hopefully the antibiotics will have me feeling 100% by monday though.

As it stands I fell crap loads better today than yesterday so hopefully I will only have to deal with this a little while longer.

Today is Saturday and I have hit my reset button, Im ready to get back on track, track what I eat and start up my exercise again.




Sick :-(

Friday, September 11, 2009

well last sunday I started getting a soar throat and pretty much knew I was getting sick. I was right and since then I have felt worse and worse and now its moved from my head down into my cheast. :-(

This has really thrown me off this week because I havent felt like writing down my food so I have done really bad with that, I have not been paying attention to how much I eat so I am pretty sure I am going to gain weight this week.

To add to everything I havent been exercising. I felt a little better a few days ago so I tried to do 20 minutes on the elliptical. That did not work out so well because I really could not breath very well. I have desided that I will not try that again till after Im feeling better.

I have a doctors appt. this afternoon so hopefully they can give me something to knock this sh*t out. I feel like I have that little green mucus guy from the commericals in my cheast. Its not very pleasant.

I havent been sick in more than 2 years so I geuss I had a pretty good run. All I can say is, I hope I do better next week.
