Went out to Longhorn Steakhouse tonight...

Monday, April 18, 2011

I had promised my daughter and mother I would take them out to dinner for their birthdays (April 8 & 9) and tonight was the night. Though, I told myself to order "healthy" ...and I kinda did, it's just that we got the dessert..Chocolate Stampede (for 2) and it is really high in calories...maybe if I had any idea of how many calories maybe I wouldn't have eaten it or suggested we get it... .(.I looked up the calories for all the items I ordered tonight) except the chocolate stampede mainly cuz I didn't plan on having it, but since I have been doing really well for a few days I thought I would let myself splurge..I am just hoping that I don't gain that much weight.

Note to self: This is why I don't like to go out to eat! No Control!!!!

When I got home I did a second workout and did some Zumba moves to some hip music cds my daughter has. I don't feel that bad about eating so much..but we shall see how the scale is in the morning.

I did weigh myself when I got home and the scale said 2 more pounds, but I know that normally at night my weight does go that isn't accurate at all. I will just eat well again tomorrow and the next day and so on and so on so I can focus on the weight going down

    Remember the 80-20 rule - stay on plan 80% of the time and the 20% will take care of itself -

    Birthday meal calories donít count!! (lol oh, if only that were true!) You sound like you worked them off when you got home Ė thatís what itís all about Ė knowing that we can eat delicious goodies, but we just have to up the calories out!! Good luck on the scale today! :)

    You can't let a little fun ruin a birthday celebration! Sounds like you worked on balancing out the extra calories anyway. We have a longhorn Bbq here and I looove their ribs...but I only go there about once a year! lol!

    Glad you all had a great time! Start right back on track and you will be fine emoticon. I guess that's why I don't eat out as much either. No control! You said it right emoticon.

My baby girl turns 15 today!!!

Saturday, April 09, 2011


I can't believe it! Time surely flies...but you don't realize it until you wake up one morning and your child is all grown up and you wonder where the time went to. I keep thinking that she will be going off to college soon...and that scares me in a good way.

She's been feeling sick all her party for later today was cancelled/postponed due to that and that she would probably be worn out from it if we still had kept it on. We have a pretty busy weekend anyways...I hope she can have a good weekend and kick this cold to the curb soon!

Drinking my I don't eat anything else tonight!!!

Ok so I started this about 2 hours ago...and got a phone call which helped me not overeat..Thankfully! was an interesting day. My daughter is sick with some viral infection which of course can't be healed with meds..haha...So, she stayed home yesterday and I took her to the doctor today...

I went shopping the WORST WAY...on an empty stomach. I was starving after the doctors and I just had to go food shopping as the weather has been rainy and no fun to be out in ...One good thing is I didn't buy a lot of junk food, just food for my daughter as she is supposed to eat light foods.

My day started out good. I worked out for 3 miles (day 2 of Leslie's 7 day challenge with this new dvd I bought of hers the other day) and then I ate good...under 400 calories for breakfast. But then lunch kinda got away from me. I was so hungry so I had some salsa w/ tortilla chips and some light sour cream...but somehow I thought that wasn't many calories so I made a lean cuisine pizza meal which was 320 calories and even though I didn't eat the whole thing...I felt really full and had some stomach pains after that...Then, I found my daughter's stash of GS peanut butter cookies and had two (140 cals for 2)...they were good and ...but I just didn't eat any dinner b/c I ate enough the whole day before awful is that!?

I was hoping to get another work out in, but I really need my zzzzzzzzzz's..Especially after watching Dr Oz today.

    I find that if I have to choose between sleep and working out, I almost always choose sleep. It helps more in the long run for me.

However, I find that when I eat things like chips, pizza, cookies and then skip a meal in there somewhere to make up for it, I am MUCH more tired and sluggish. So, maybe a small salad with a little protein would be okay for dinner instead of nothing and then you'd have more energy???

  There'll be days when it's a little harder than usual to keep the 'ol appetite in check. Just keep working out! Hope your daughter feels better soon. emoticon

Didn't make the best choices...

Monday, April 04, 2011

I didn't make the best choices over the weekend. I had my daughter's party and there was cake...chocolate cake and even though I told myself I wasn't going to eat any..I couldn't resist. I had some ice cream as well..and then we ordered my fave pizza..Mexican and the place we go to makes it so yummy so I couldn't, but should've not had as many slices as I did.

emoticon emoticon

Then, Sunday I had my friend's baby shower and it was a buffet brunch! Breakfast is my favorite meal of the day so I loved it! And I only drank water except for that one cup of hot chocolate w/ whipped yummy! I had a couple bites of the wasn't as yummy as the one I got for my daughter's I was tempted to eat the whole thing. emoticon emoticon

I did my Zumba class on Saturday so it wasn't that bad as I burned like 400-500 calories..but yesterday I didn't have time or energy to work out..I was so tired when I got home that I took a nap...and then today...I pigged out a little on the rest of the bday cake and had some ice cream...but I finally got a workout in at 10pm tonight...

I just have to re-focus for the rest of the week and just eat within my calorie range and exercise each day...

    Yeah, there will always be SOMETHING come up - holidays, weddings, baby showers, birthdays, etc. The best you can do is indulge in moderation so you don't feel totally deprived, then just step it up a notch in workouts.

One thing I like is - it gives you a variety of exercises to offset the calories eaten. More than once, that list has helped to hold me in check! LOL

Good luck! emoticon

    It's all about refocusing and adjusting once more to the life style you want. I had a bad 4 days this past wknd too (Thursday - Sunday), but I won't beat myself up. I'll just get back up, dust myself off and I started new again on Monday. Keep the beat. I know you can do this ~ Donna emoticon

Today was an odd day for me...

Monday, March 28, 2011

I wanted to work out this morning before breakfast like I do every morning, but I don't know if I am just burnt out or just needed a break today...So, I changed my plan and did my errands.. and told myself I would work out later...

Then during the afternoon I started getting really hungry and I kept chewing gum and drinking water, but the hunger wouldn't go away so I just had a 100 calorie sweet/salty snack...which kinda helped. I did notice and I reminded myself that I wasn't really "hungry" I was just I waited and then I decided to work out around 8pm or so...

Today was just odd for me as I normally have the energy and motivation to workout in the morning as that is the best time for me to do it (especially since I am not working)...and I just didn't have it in me..hopefully I will get my groove back tomorrow.
