I usually flounder on the weekends, but I went to the grocery store the other day and stocked up on fruits and veggies and healthy chicken breasts. I feel totally ready to take on the weekend! I am going to have some people over for dinner tonight, but I have it all planned out. I am going to make Kraft Garlic & Herb shake n' bake with the cheese topping for them, and mashed potatoes with macaroni salad and broccoli. I, on the other hand, will be able to convincingly eat the same thing with my own portion of chicken (sans cheese) and a baked potato with a dollop of light sour cream on it, and broccoli. I am also going to have a glass of wine (ooh, real excited over here!). Will be guzzling water!
I feel so motivated lately. I think it is from the consistent exercise. They say exercise busts depression, and they may be right! Plus, it helps to be feeling good that I have completed a workout. Today I am going to take a long walk, brisk pace. I am not going to do the Shred today; my husband is home, and I know it's weird, but he wants to watch me do the thing and I am all about avoiding that!
Well, I hope you all have a lovely weekend! Stay strong! It will help keep me on track knowing you are all doing so well!

I am motivated! I got up at 8, and did my workout video, "30 Day Shred," level one. I did it pretty well. I also completed the same workout yesterday. I am 2 for 2! March is here, and I can't believe it is a new month already!
I am feeling good. I planned out my food for the day, and I can't wait to get more success under my belt!

I weighed in this morning, and I maintained my 3 lb. lost for another day! I ate a bit over 1600 calories yesterday, but since I got up so early, I know my pattern is to eat more on those early-morning, sleep-deprived days. Today is another story! I am SO motivated! I am on my way down, and I feel like I can really do it! I am eating more veggies, drinking more liquids, and feeling good.
AND... The job I interviewed for called me back! I am going in today to do paperwork and get rolling on working. I feel like I am practically in! YAY!

I exercised yesterday, and even though I had two normal sized glasses of wine, which put my at 1610 or so calories, I still feel good. I was hungry when I got up (AT FIVE AM) to register for classes. I even stopped at McDonald's and got a Fruit & Yogurt Parfait. I love those sugary things. It is so rich! I can't believe how creamy low-fat vs nonfat yogurt is. I like my fat free, though! It is less caloric. I am having a friend come over today and she will be my exercise buddy. I think that will really help me out.
Today I planned out my day and my calories are 1390. It is hard for me to stick to my calories when I am tired and awake so early. It gives me more hours in the day to be awake and therefore, around food. Wish me luck!

I have come to a realization. I look at my "spark streaks," and I think that I over-estimated how often I am compliant with my diet. I think the streak page is more accurate; I am like 40% compliant with my diet and exercise. I gain weight, lose a couple, gain more, and slowly but surely my weight has crept up pound by pound. I am back to 146 or so. I was 136 and trying to diet on here just 8 months ago. I even touched the 120's! Now here I am, 20 pounds heavier than when I started seeing my husband, only a little over a year ago. THAT is a significant weight change. I am horrified.
I am listening to these lectures on www.fatloser.com for free 21 days. The first few stress than I must be 100% compliant with my diet and exercise until I reach my goal weight (or "natural weight"). I can't remain 100% compliant for more than a few days. 4 tops. I always fail. I usually blow my diet out of the water Friday-Sunday. That is a conservative estimate.
