@ Mohegan Sun for FILs birthday. update later!
So today I had roughly 8 cups of water. I ate TERRIBLE, but had
-turkey cheese wrap with little mayo
-bag of baked lays
-dunkin turkey sausage wrap
-400 calorie cookie
-1/2 cup bbq pulled chicken
-1/4 lb bbq beef brisket
-1/4 cup baked beans
-1 small piece of cornbread.
So, I drank more water, but went way over on calories unfortunately. Weekends have always been harder because they are so unstructured and today was especially hard with being at my work conference and then going to mohegan. Tomorrow will be better.

So hubby left for work about 5:20 and I wake up when he leaves and snuggle under my covers for a bit til I need to get up. The plan was to get out of bed at 5:50, didn't get up until 6:10, woops. But I DID go to the gym and spent 30 minutes on the elliptical and burned 360 calories! Woot!
You know it's been a long time since your last gym visit when you walk in and the entire place has been remodeled. Womp womp... ALSO, it is NOT easy to work out after taking two months off. My last workout was around my anniversary which was October 7, and I was burning 360-500 calories a DAY on the elliptical no problem. Amazing what two months will do. Oh well, just gotta hang in there. It'll get easier. If I could do it before I can do it again!
ALSO, I begrudgingly decided I should weigh in. My last weigh-in was 164 lbs on Friday, October 4. I was SHOCKED to see that two months later with no working out and eating like complete and utter crap that I only weigh 164.5. Half a pound difference! Thanks, stress! I guess buying a house really does help you lose weight.
So anyways, that is the update for now, may edit this later to include more of my day.
Happy Friday, happy weekend!

I'm posting this as my blog entry title to guilt myself into actually going to the gym in the morning, haha. Gotta start somehow, right? Finally have gym clothes so no more excuses! Today has been a good day so far, tracked everything that I ate so far today, didn't drink as much water as I would have liked but, 4 cups is better than none. So excited that tomorrow is Friday! Only about 51 hours separating me from my weekend! Woohoo!

So, no workout clothes this morning so I did not go to the gym. However, on my way to work I realized that today and tomorrow I work 9 hours, Friday I work 8 hours, and Saturday I have a work conference from 8am - 4pm and then work at the restaurant from 5-11. So I will literally have NO time to myself, so sad. But I still want to try to make it to the gym before work in the mornings. Yesterday was good as far as eating went, stayed in calorie range and pretty much met all my protein, fat, and fiber goals. Didn't drink as much water as I would have liked, but today's a new day! Hope everyone is doing well!

So here we are one day later, I'm glad to be blogging and not failing miserably on the goal I set for myself in the first 24 hours. Last night I went out for Chinese food, which I probably shouldn't have had, but I ALSO went food shopping to start eating healthier starting this morning, which so far so good. Didn't make it to the gym before work, but want to start getting into the habit of that again soon. Seriously though I have no gym clothes (or any clothes, really) unpacked or clean. And I have no washer or dryer. But enough with the excuses! I started some laundry at my mom's house today and also ordered a washer and dryer online this morning from Best Buy, although it will not arrive til Sunday the 15th. Guess I'll be at my mom's a few times between now and then. I'm hoping to pick up my laundry tonight at my mom's so I can go to the gym tomorrow morning, first time in who knows how long. Tonight I won't get home til 7ish so I'm only planning on eating dinner and doing some unpacking. Hope everyone is having a great day so far!
