days 8, 9, 10

Friday, September 10, 2010

all's coming along so-so.. Wednesday I had a high calorie day... but still met all other goals. Thursday morning I made the mistake of getting on my scales. I have pretty much kept my goals except for Wednesday, where my calories went over 1700 and my carbs were a bit over 20 as well, but the rest of the days: under 1200 and under 20... plus I've been drinking 100 oz of water daily, getting up at 5:20 each morning to walk a mile on my treadmill and taking my vitamins... and when I stepped on the scales Thursday morning, I was UP 2 pounds. Too soon to be muscle from exercising, I've been drinking a lot of water, so don't know if it's bloating... perhaps I need to go lower on calories... I just don't know, but it sure was depressing to see that gain when I was expecting a pound down in the least. Sunday morning is my official weigh in day... but Saturday I'm supposed to meet an old friend at a Chinese buffet for lunch. Not good for my diet at all. :/

tonight is pizza night. a struggle, but not impossible to conquer.

    Don't get discouraged! I think waking up at 5:30 and walking a mile is a tremendous accomplishment!! The weight will come off ... I just know it!!

days 5, 6, & 7

Tuesday, September 07, 2010

Sunday - did ok, skipped spaghetti for a lot of salad with just a little dressing, but did not exercise. :/
Also Sunday... we got bunnies! emoticon While at wally world, I happened to see a lady I know who asked if we were interested in some bunnies, no cost, she just wanted to be rid of them... so I said yes.

Monday - not a good day. grilled burgers, baked fries, and they were so yummy, bun and all. ended the day with baking a cake for my 10yo... she had a cell model project to do and she decided to do a cake with candy as the parts of the cell. Came out really good, and so was some of the candy!

I did exercise, but accidentally entered it on Sunday. :/ So my streak is messed up. If I entered for Monday, too, my minutes would be wrong. dangit!

We also put up a pen for the bunnies... will be building a hutch soon!

Tuesday - that's today. So far so good, but it's still the morning. I got up at 5:30AM and did a mile on my treadmill! woohoo!
will edit with more on today's successes this evening. :)
did pretty good. Calories below goal, carbs right at goal, water at goal, vitamins... done. One day down, and rockin'! :)

    Sounds like you had an active weekend. New day, new start. Don't beat yourself up over it. Just move on and learn from your mistakes.

KUDOS for walking a mile at 5:30!!

day 3 & 4

Saturday, September 04, 2010

ok... day 3... a work day, also pizza night at home. Worked all day, got home then immediately went to town for some groceries & pizza, I opted for some 0 carb chicken, but ate a ton of it. Came home, cooked, ate, watched movies. My calories were way over my goal for the day, but carbs were way under. Water was right on 100 oz!!! and I got in my vitamins, but exercise... that is where I messed up. No excuses... I made the choice to watch a movie with intentions of walking after the movie.... but after the movie, I went to sleep. :/ I need to remember my own new mantra... don't trade what I want most for what I want at the moment, and last night I did. Walking would have forwarded my progress to what I want most, watching a movie did not.

day 4... saturday. Not off to a great start calorie wise cause I ate the other half of that chicken. Water isn't yet up to par either, but I plan on getting in all in, 100 oz worth, along with my vitamins and a mile on my treadmill. I will edit this blog post when I get it all accomplished.

Overall I'm not feeling good about the weigh in coming up in the morning. I'm really dreading it.

I appreciate all who have taken time to encourage me! Thank you!

edit... not so good. Calories same as day 3, water was 100 oz! took vitamins, carbs were below 20... good. But once again I did not get on my treadmill. I'll count these two past days as my 2/7 that I don't walk, I reckon.

day 2

Thursday, September 02, 2010

Today was my day off and I did several loads of laundry while I watched movies. Also got normal stuff done like dishes, vacuuming, etc... the boring stuff. my only issue was that each time I was in the kitchen I grabbed a few almonds... and ended up with over a serving (at least I kept count). Due to that and an awesomely delicious and large ribeye steak, my calories were over my goal... but overall still not that excessive.

I exercised again today! 22 minutes on the treadmill. :) That's progress and I'm 2 days in a row now with the exercise. That's something for me! LOL!

9/1 ~ day 1 of a new beginning

Wednesday, September 01, 2010

Had court today, which means I have to dress up. I have no pants that fit right now, if I want to breathe, so been wearing skirts and feel like a blimp in them. I hate always feeling like the fattest person in the room. After court I changed into jean capris and a t-shirt... much more comfy, but still, the fattest person in the room.

BUT. I am doing something about it. Today I ate within my ranges, drank 100 oz of water, took my vitamins, and I actually exercised! Not the 30 minutes I set my goal at daily, but for 20 minutes and I feel pretty dang good about it.

September is off to a good start!
Goals for this month are to meet my daily goals, no excuses, no give ups, no pity parties... and an 8-10 lb loss by Oct 1st.
