I've completed my grad class and have the time to check in again. I managed to not gain weight during my time away. But I am off my exercise routine and must work to get back into the groove.
It is so good to be back.

We needed to turn the furnace on yesterday. It is beginning to feel like Fall.
My grad class began on Monday. Another one begins in a couple of weeks. I am only tracking my food on the weekend, tracking my fitness minutes full time. My classes would have been done this summer, but they got cancelled.
Here are my calories for last Sunday and yesterday (2,000 cal./day limit):
Sunday, September, 16, 2012 - 1,714
Friday, September 22, 2012 - 1,539 calories
Make it a great week!

I went back to work and had none of the time I previously had to devote to logging into SparkPeople regularly. I kept track of my food in a paper journal for a week and a half and then realized I would not have the time to enter the accumulated entries.
The new plan is to enter my foods during the weekends as a way to check up on my eating habits. A scale will need to be purchased due to the fact that I'm not tracking my food daily. Bimonthly weigh-ins will be part of my new approach.
Another part of my new situation is the lack of a Tame Your Sweet Tooth trophy. It had been my plan to not eat sweets for 4 weeks and add a trophy to my Sparkpage. I decided 2 weeks was enough and enjoyed cake at my good friend's birthday party. I must admit...though I am back to eating some of my favorite treats (graham crackers, soynut butter, flavored yogurt, etc.), I have had VERY few traditional desserts. Previously, it was nearly impossible for me to say no to dessert (doughnuts, pie, cake, ice cream, etc.). I will remain a member of the Tame Your Sweet Tooth team because I like to people there.
Here are my calories for today:
1,597 (2,000 daily limit)
Make it a great weekend and week!

If I am going to lower my sugar threshold, I will need to stop eating the following foods for a few weeks (deep breath):
graham crackers, waffles, chocolate chips, pudding, flavored yogurt, sweetened shredded coconut, hard candy, soy nut butter, jelly, jam, flavored water, and maple syrup. Aside from the sugary things I keep in my pantry, desserts are off limits, too.
Here are my calorie counts for the week (2,000 cal./day):
Sat., Aug. 18 – 1,769
Sun., Aug. 19 – 1,833
Mon., Aug. 20 – 1,665
Tues., Aug. 21 – 1,896
Wed., Aug. 22 – 2,037 (Staff picnic...only had one cookie. Not bad. : ))
Thurs., Aug. 23 – 1,882
Fri., Aug. 24 – 2,011
I'm back to school next week. We'll see if my eating habits suffer as I'm making the transition from stay at home mom to full time teacher. It usually takes my son and I a couple of weeks to acclimate to our new schedules.
Have a great week, all!

My craving for sweets do not seem to be focused on a certain time of day. "A little sweet makes the meal complete" is my mantra. As long as I don't have dessert after every meal of the day and I enjoy in moderation, this seems okay. We'll see if I feel the same come the end of the challenge.
Today, I had lunch with a friend I had not seen in awhile. We had a small gellato for dessert and I took a bite of my son's brownie. In doing so, I remained within my calorie and fat constraints for the day. This is an accomplishment!
