So, i broke 130 and was super excited. I am the super woman of weight loss! Thinking i was in control of things i wandered away from spark and little by little stopped all the good habits i had developed. apparently they weren't habits just yet though or else i guess i wouldn't have dropped them. anyway. Good news bad news is that when i went to the first TX football game i was able to wear my khaki shorts, something i couldn't do the two years prior - woohoo! Bad news is, though my khaki shorts fit, they fit better just a couple months ago.
I'm back though, and this time i'm gonna stick around. It's obvious I need the accountability, when i'm not tracking my food i just don't feel bad about it. Yesterday for instance i had left over Pasta alfredo for lunch. Just one serving. not bad right? except someone left pizza in the fridge so i proceeded to eat that also. Not the whole thing! just two slices, and i wasn't even hungry. Then between work and bible study i was rushed so i stopped at popeyes and got the popcorn shrimp dinner. Now, months ago i wouldn't have dared stop at a popeyes, and if i did, i'd only eat till i was full then throw the rest away. Yesterday not only did i stop but i ate every last bit. Again... not that hungry but it was there so i kept stuffing my mouth. Every fry, every popcorn shrimp, and every last crumb of the biscuit was gone. I looked in the little popeyes box and decided that today i would mosey on over to spark people. I won't dare log yesterdays food intake. I'm not a masochist. Instead i'm starting over today. Frozen berry oatmeal for breakfast!

Not doing very well food wise. I'm not going over my calories but yesterday after i blogged I was sitting at my desk working diligently and started to get hungry. So I grabbed the chips I had so valiantly avoided earlier. I gotta say though, they were a great snack. Unfortunately because I was short on time yesterday evening I didn't bother getting anything to eat for dinner, I wasn't really hungry. I know I should have eaten, but I just didn't feel like it. Instead I ate half a skinny cow after choir practice... I was craving ice cream. I drank my water like I was supposed to, but the food thing somehow evaded me yesterday.
Today is better, having an extra cup of coffee bc it's going to be one of those days - work is piling up. But looking busy is a good thing these days. Had kolache factory this morning, just one, and it was relatively small I think. Oh! and no cheese. And I brought a salad for lunch with snacks and everything. Today is definitely going to be better food wise.
Haven't ridden my bike in a couple weeks, we're having heat advisories just about every day. That's not why I'm not riding though... I have a hard time waking up. So instead I think tonight I'll jump on my spinner. Tomorrow I may ride. We'll see.

so I had the McD's biscuit this morning... but I'm not beating myself up over it. I've avoided the bad stuff for a few weeks so one biscuit on a solitary wednesday morning is totally forgivable. I've followed my own rule, don't deprive and don't binge. This is good.
Did yoga on monday and today again. It's 'flow yoga' or 'vinyasa yoga'. You don't really hold any pose for a very long time, instead you flow from one pose to another and throw in a whole bunch of vinyasas. Monday we went from downward dog into chaturanga then upward dog. Right leg standing split, warrior 1, warrior 2, warrior 3, standing split, chair pose, forward bend, vinyasa. Repeat opposite leg. We did this for about 30 minutes. adding on each time. Tuesday my arms were killing me! If I had stopped there, my muscles would have healed, recouped all that good stuff... but no. I went and did yoga today. and much to my delight (insert sarcasm) we spent the first 10 min practicing vinyasas. I thought my muscles were going to rip in half! i'm exaggerating of course... but it was tough. I feel better knowing i pushed through it though.
Had a sandwich from Jason's deli and left the chips out, woo hoo for small victories. Tonight is choir practice... aka, my abs work out. Don't laugh, if you do it right it is a bit of a work out. and... that's all

Last week I had McD's for breakfast and I swore never again, and I mean it. But Kolache Factory, well that's another story. This is actually a less than once a month occurrence anyway, but Frank (usually works out of LA) is in Houston this week. Which means that on Friday, today, he's bringing in Kolache Factory. Yesterday he asked what I wanted... I had to think long and hard. Everything from that place is going to be over inflated in the fat and cal dept, so what would be worth it? Ham and Egg Croissant! and it soooo was. This I can justify. Warm, flaky croissant filled with fluffy eggs and ham. I'm reliving it, and it's wonderful. This is worth the extra calories, I'll just be more aware the rest of the day. Sadly though, this ends a high fiber breakfast streak I was on. I've been eating my own food, and I add flax seed meal to just about everything so I get the extra fiber first thing in the morning. Hmmm... I guess I probably could have poured a tsp of flax into the croissant... oh well. Hind sight is 20/20
Today I won't be getting any cardio in... but SP has told me time and again I'm over my minutes this week anyway. Going Fishing tonight! woo hoo!

Lucky for me, it doesn't matter! I'm a compulsive eater, I know this. I don't have to be hungry I just need to have still hands and the next thing you know I'm putting food in my mouth that I don't really want. I think I've found a solution though, I'm sure of it actually. Last night I made blackberry fruit leathers, one tray to be exact. I break up the tray and put it in my little container and take it to work with me. Now the idea is that this little container will keep my mouth and hands busy for the next few days when ever I feel compelled to eat. I opened the container at noon... it's now 1:50 and container is empty. Ok, so I at all 4 servings (I made up the servings out of no where) in one sitting. But 4 servings consists of 1cup of black berries and 2 small apples. No harm no foul, woo hoo! To really put this in perspective, think about how many chips, cookies etc etc you could eat in 2 hours. Taking the dehydrator from Dad's house was a FANTASTIC idea. He didn't really appreciate it anyway. :D
Activity is still up, I may have to change my 'my Fitness' goals pretty soon. Yesterday I biked to work, biked to church, and then biked home that evening. For a total of 8 miles. OH! and i did yoga at lunch. I fell on my face during yoga. I tried to do a new move... apparently I'm not ready for that though. Will try again another day, it's gonna look really cool when I finally get it down. For those who are wondering. Crow pose to Plank. Normally you set your feet down and walk back. The challenge was to 'shoot' your feet back into the plank position. To quote: "You just pop into plank". uh huh... sure sure. I'll try again later, after the bruise heals. At least I was already close to the ground though, that could have been rough.
