100 lbs. In 300 Days - Day Sixty-eight

Saturday, December 01, 2012

Day 68....

This was a very long and stressful day. My son had a wrestling meet. Wrestling meets are extremely stressful. My computer is slow. My body is sore. I am tired. I can't reach one of my sons and I am worried about him. I am pretty disappointed in the behavior of one of my children. Loads of stress. I think I need to go to bed and start over.

Eating right is really hard when you are stressed out and full of worries. I made my calorie goal today, but I can't say my food choices were magnificent. Tomorrow is a new day, I suppose. I'm really having a lot of trouble concentrating. I'm struggling to get any of my Christmas shopping done. Frustrating. All I really really want is a great big old bunch of pizza. Salty, crusty, saucy, cheesy pizza! Mmmmmm.....

Okay. That's enough out of me. Someone needs to go to bed.

Love to all,

    You are right, someone DOES need to go to bed, although how you KNEW I needed to, I just don't know, maybe you are psychic. No wrestling matches for me but a DIFFICULT day all the same. Night sleep well.

100 lbs. In 300 Days - Day Sixty-Six

Thursday, November 29, 2012

Day 66 is today!

Well, after a TWELVE DAY vacation, I am back on track. Due to some recent stress-induced problems, I have not done very well lately. The big straw that broke the camel's back and opened the flood-gates was not being able to get internet hooked up at the new house. I got so discouraged, I gave up. I hate that. So here I am, after twelve days wasted, back on track, hopefully.

Today, I made my calorie goals. I feel a little bit better about that, anyway. I am also happy to report that, while I have not been eating right, I have been swimming like a fish. I have logged an hour and a half of swimming since Monday this week. I will also swim tomorrow. Yay! Two hours, at least, of exercise this week. And while I have gained a couple of pounds back, I'm beginning to feel stronger, have more energy, and need fewer medications. That is a real testament to the power of exercise!

So, for now, I'm behind. I'm at 17% on weight loss and 22% on days. I still think I can pull it off; I'll just have to work harder. I'm committed to doing so. Send me some love, people... with your support, I can do this!

Peace and love,

100 lbs. in 300 Days: Day Fifty-four

Day 54...

A couple of nice things to say about yesterday. Number one: I exercised! I swam for half an hour. Yay! Number two: I lost a couple of more lbs. I'm down 19 lbs. now. Yay! I'm pretty happy about that. I'm still ahead of schedule. Yes!

So my day yesterday was swimming with my dad, shopping with my mom and my daughter and I went to get new tires on the car.

Food - I went over on my calories a little. This no internet thing is killing my diet, but the swimming probably helped that.

Peace and Love..

100 lbs. In 300 Days - Day Fifty-three

Day 53....

I think I am going to perish if we don't get internet service at our new house pretty soon. It's too hard to try and keep track without the computer to help me know how many calories are in things! I did manage to keep my calories under control, yesterday, but it's because I starve myself all day until I can get some internet service. As you can see, it's now 11:31 and I'm camped out at McDonald's with a Diet Coke. Ugh. Yesterday I had an Anatomy Exam. I passed! Yay! And I just did random stuff most of the day.

Food - Breakfast was an orange and a fiber one bar. Some crab rangoons I made at home for a snack, and a chicken sandwich (grilled) and some french fries. Yay me. Hopefully I will get things together soon. I think the holidays are going to be more challenging than anticipated. It will definitely be interesting. Just gotta get some exercise and internet going and maybe it will ease up.

Well, they are getting ready to close the doors on us.

Goodnight friends...

100 lbs. In 300 Days - Day Fifty-two

Thursday, November 15, 2012

Day 52...

It was a pretty low key day. I rested some as I was tired. I took my husband to work and visited with my parents for a while. I also got to see my middle son who was unfortunately home for the funeral of a friend. I also got a wonderful phone call yesterday. My daughter's back surgery has been CANCELLED! She will not have a permanent rod put in her spine! Hooray! So went went out to dinner last night to celebrate. That also means we will be able to go to Lafayette to visit my son for Thanksgiving. I'm so grateful for that because he has to work and was going to spend it alone. So yay!

Food - Breakfast was skipped, at lunch I had fruit, cottage cheese, a muffin and some potato soup. For a snack, I had a buttered English muffin and an orange. For supper, a cheese coney and a kids 3-way. I did go over by 50 calories, but JOY OH JOY! I still weighed one pound less this morning! So I think I'm doing okay. Still ahead of schedule to lose 100 lbs. in 300 days.

Peace and love to all,
