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.

Today started out so good!!!

Saturday, March 26, 2011

I went to Zumba this morning and it was great! I burned close to 500 calories! We usually are in the big room, but after 10 min or so into it the CD player stopped working and we had to go into the smaller there were more of us today..some of the dance teachers (including my daughter's dance teacher) were it was kinda cozy! But still fun!

I had a plan to eat really good today..but when my friend called go out to eat...I couldn't resist as we haven't been out in ages. We went to 99 for dinner seemed to not be a good idea as it is always crowded at night...

It started off really good..I went on their website before I left to check out what I can have that is low calorie. I found the fit for you meals (only 3!) So, I picked out one I could have...After getting to restaurant my friend and I decided that on an appetizer...the Irish Nachos! Not the best choice, but since I haven't had Mexican food in so long I said why not..They were so good..and then I got one of the fit for you meals. 3/4 done with my meal and I was full....BUT I was craving something SWEET! Why does that happen? So, I decided I was going to get the dessert...maybe not the best choice...but it was delish. I even had the waitress bring two spoons to try to convince my friend to have some but she stood her ground..oh well. I told her I didn't feel bad as I already did a great workout today!

It was really yummy. Plus, I told myself and my friend that I planned to come home and walk w/ Leslie and try to burn more calories so it wouldn't be that bad...When I got home I checked the website and figured that I had about 2500 calories or so...while that is A LOT!!! I am planning on burning another 300 calories tonight so that hopefully it will not make a difference!

I am kinda bummed that I went over as much as I did...but the Nachos is what did me in. The sundae..actually not as many calories as I would have thought.

So...I feel a little bad...but not really..I know that I had a good dinner and a great time and I know that I don't and won't be doing this on a regular basis. We used to always go out every other weekend...but we stopped thankfully! I know that I would prefer to eat healthy at home then to go out and eat unhealthy.

emoticon Here's to Tomorrow! A new day! To start over!!!! emoticon
