W3 Tuesday

Tuesday, January 31, 2012

Despite being "cheat day" I'm going to try not to. I figure I used that up the other day. Boo. I think my hormones are going nuts and that's what's making me crave sweet stuff something awful lately.

I'm going to try and get a walk in before meeting time and dinner.

I'd say more but I'm so BLARG the past two days that I can't think of much to say.

I have under 100 calories left for today. I'll have to use a smidge of willpower to resist eating snack stuff between now and bedtime. Luckily, I'm only halfway through dinner...gonna store it for an hour or two and when that snacking urge comes around I'll finish it.

I didn't have the greatest track record calorie-wise the last two days, so I walked to campus again today. I think I'm going to try and do that more often. It makes me feel good and it burns ~400 calories to get there!

It feels nice to be relatively caught-up on my schoolwork! I don't have to panic or squeeze in exercise time, it's so much more relaxed! So long as I work on keeping on top of these things this semester shouldn't be as bad as I expected.

I'm going to watch some Golden Girls, print a bunch of school stuff, and maybe clean my poor neglected room. That should help me keep occupied 'till bed time! :D

    Good strategy to save some dinner for a snack!

You get 400 calories expended when you walk? I only use up about 100 calories per mile... you must walk FAST!

W3 Sunday (Whoo!)

Sunday, January 29, 2012

Wow, it didn't click in my head that this would be week 3 for me. Too bad last night was such a disaster! XD Between hormones and everything else, I went way over my allowed calories. But I can't feel too badly about it, since the day before I was under my range completely because I felt too sick to eat. So, I guess in the long-term it'll balance out. Back on the wagon for today.

So...weigh-in. I wasn't expecting much of anything....between yesterday's eating, the water weight, and my hair probably holding onto some moisture still from my shower this morning.


My starting weight was 244, and last weigh-in I was almost 247.....and now I'm UNDER both of them! :D It's not a huge amount but it sure feels like it!

Once I start feeling better over the next two or three days things are REALLY going to pick up!

No walk yet....woke up in pain at 8am and I'm only just now feeling well enough to go out and do stuff. Yay for late lunches! I'll walk later...luckily it's a great day out today.

I pulled a miracle last night with getting schoolwork done and today is just tying up all the loose ends I couldn't get to. Once that's done I'm going to try and relax most of tomorrow. It'll be nice, especially since I apparently need to get my car fixed.

Good thing I can finally ride my bike! :D I got it second-hand from a friend who was going to give it away and he's way higher than me. Said friend is now new boyfriend (squee!!! you have no idea how excited I still am about everything!) and helped fix the seat for me the other day. He's a lot more active than me, so maybe I can ask if he would mind me finding some things we could do together. ^_^

Well, good news--I wasn't feeling sick from that walk! I don't have to be scared now about long hikes!

NOTE TO ANY MEN SPARKMEMBERS READING THIS: Here be monsters, you may want to turn around. XD I know a lot of you guys feel uncomfortable hearing about this stuff, so I'm giving you fair warning.


Anywho, I was feeling sick, but that had more to do with internal plumbing than walking. My cycle's been screwed up for a long time and I think the sudden change in diet and increase in exercise finally triggered my period to start up again. This also makes me feel a bit better about not losing any weight yet. I was 244 pounds days before starting SparkPeople officially. Last Sunday (without any real increase in exercise, mind you), I was suddenly about 247 pounds....hence the unhappiness from me about weigh-in. But now I'm thinking (hoping?) it may just be water weight to some extent.

Not sure how much walking I'll be able to get done today feeling like I do. I get a crazy array of symptoms that can be pretty debilitating when they're bad enough. My stomach and knees hurt like mad (to the point where sometimes it's really hard for me to walk even just across the room), I sometimes get nauseous to the point where I have trouble handling even water, I get incredibly tired, and my mind kind of gets "fuzzy" where it's hard for me to focus on a lot of things. When I get a decent combination of all that I'm not even safe to drive. part? It's gotten BETTER over the years! O_O Seriously, evolution, you screwed up on this one.

Took 3 advil yesterday for my body to have any desirable reaction to the medication. I think I'm going to try and take a second one now in hopes that I can make it to class on time. Luckily we're just doing paper editing (I'm weird, I have fun editing papers) and then I can come right back home.
