Spark Points!

Thursday, April 19, 2007

I would just like to say that I have 4000 SparkPoints at this moment.

MuahhahahahaaaAAA!!! Soon I will have them all!!!

Hahaha. Just kidding. Man, I swear I will have that top trophy because I am going to stay with SparkPeople.com forever. :D

Although this week has not been so hot for me. It's that TOM and Ben&Jerry's have been spending TOO MUCH TIME with me. I have a plan of action for staying within my ranges today even though I've eaten a whole pint today. Yes, I ate a pint of Ben &Jerry's 10th Anniversary Version of Phish Food. I know. WHY DO I DO THIS TO MYSELF??? I should have stuck to my guns and gotten a light ice cream even though WalMart doesn't have ANY pretty much. But anyway -- now all my ice cream is gone so it will tempt me no longer. I just have to eat a very light dinner and I'll be fine. I hope.

hehehe. There's still the devil on one side saying -- Tell DH about the new Little Caesar's! And the angel is saying -- DON'T DO IT!!! You can be strong!

I will be good!


I just realized...

...today is also my 3 month Sparkiversary! :)

Well, I guess technically yesterday was, but I started on a Monday so really today's close enough. So I've averaged about 10lbs a month, and I have a little over a month till I leave to visit my in-laws. This bodes well for my more-agressive-mini-goal, as I'm calling it. :D


Weekend Update

Monday, April 16, 2007

No, not like on SNL. Although I love SNL! :) hahahaha

Well, Saturday was a pretty good day, Sunday was abysmal. I didn't even track because I knew it was bad... although -- I think I may have actually come in within range, it was not the way I should have.

Remember when I was talking about BALANCE?

Well Sunday, I had some Kashi Cereal for breakfast, so far so good. But after I was done I went to Sams' to pick up a take and bak e pizza because that's what the DH wanted -- sick, want to take care of him and give him what he wants, you know.

I probably picked the very worst pizza, because he would have hated the better ones anyway...


Who knew these things even existed? I had two slices of this abomination, it's a 16' inch pizza, divided by 8. So... yeah I didn't even look. But this is the WORST part. I felt so bad I didn't eat anything else all day except a couple of skittles and a 100 cal pack later that evening. Yeah so I kinda blew it.

But today is a new day!!! :) I just had an amazing post workout snack/lightmeal of an apple with peanut butter. MMMMMMMMMmmmmmmmmmm. I love peanut butter so much. I know I'll be having salad and whatnot for lunch, so I figured I could take the HIT in the FAT department.

The best news of the day is, today I weighed in at...


Well, I weighed twice cause my scale is wonky -- 260.5 and 259 so I figured 260 would be a good number to go with. Not quite halfway between, but erring on the heavier side, and giving me an even number FINALLY. No more .5's for me. hahaha So today was the second day I've seen that 259 number. Yesterday morning, before the eating disasters, and this morning. So I'm SURE that next week I'll be out of 260-ville!!!!

This means I've lost about 30 lbs now. :) WOOHOO!!!! And it also means only 10 lbs to go to meet my next goal.

    Saw your post on "new Spark post entries" and thought I'd chime in, hope you don't mind. Y'know what?. It is important to deal with the little side trips and roadblocks as “par for the course”. Because they are going to come in real life, after we are at goal weight, too. And if we tumble and fall all the way to the bottom then, it will be easy to gain it all back. But if we step aside, make some "unwise" choices, and then get back on the trail -- no worrries, no bother. AND put the side-trip in proper perspective. You ate some pizza -- so what? Now you are back on track. End of story! (By the way, I kniw first-hand how horrible those Sam's Club pizzas are..... I once called their home office to find out what calories were in a plain cheese pie. Oh. My. Goodness!) Needless to say, even a slice from the local pizzaria seems like a salad in comparison. Shake it off, you will be fine.

I was not careful enough today to get any kind of balance in my eating. I thought I was getting a pretty good lunch -- salad, banana, dannon light n fit, 100 cal Ritz Snack Pack...

But I only had 1/2 serving of cereal, .25 cup silk, and 1 banana for breakfast...

But still that sounds ok, right? WRONG.

So far I've only had 510 of my 1480-1830 daily limit. UGGGHHH. I mean, unless we go pick up fast food or order pizza I'm gonna have a hard time reaching that. I even had to add the Dannon. I was below 500 cal earlier. And I don't feel superhungry or anything, although I do feel kinda... weary.

So I KNOW I should have added something more substantial in the mix. I was just in such a hurry this morning, so I wanted to only eat a small small bowl of cereal. I took the banana and ate it right after the gym to recharge... my salad wasn't tiny!! It had cucumber and cherry tomatoes!!!

hahaha. I NEVER EVER thought I'd be worried about not eating enough food.

I think today is the second highest amount of cardio I've entered since starting, too. NOT GOOD, DANA!!! To do way more cardio and barely any fuel.

Anyway. I will get the hang of this sometime. I need to hard boil the eggs we have so I can add those to my salad. I need some protein bad. Anyway, I just cannot wait to go home.

Also so I can take some allergy medicine because I have a stuffy/runny nose. and head. well my head's not RUNNING, but you know. And my eyes hurt.

Well that's enough whining for now! :P

    Eww, allergies = NOT FUN!! I don't really have them myself, but I always see my friends suffering and I feel so bad for them!

I feel ya on the struggling to get enough calories. Every now and then, I'm logging stuff and realize I need a ton more calories just to meet my minimum and then feel like I'm stuffing myself so I can meet it! I know we need enough calories, but it possibly being a little under feels a tiny bit better than going over!! You can usually eat more, but you can't really take back what you ate... unless you want to live in the gym! Good luck ;)

Extra Mini-Goal

Monday, April 09, 2007

I want to officially set a mini-goal for myself of meeting that 250 by the time I go see my in-laws.

To check this goal I will do a weigh-in on that Saturday morning before going to the airport. 5/19! 250 by June is the goal for staying on track with my overall weightloss goal of 100 by the New Year. 250 by 5/19 is keeping on track with a 2lb average loss each week from where I'm at NOW.

To meet this goal I will step up my cardio time to 45 minutes minimum in each of my weekday sessions.

I will also meet my strength training and fruit/veggie requirements (2 servings each everyday) without fail once I have the opportunity to restock on the veggies, etc.

I will also complete every 1 Day Challenge (SparkTeam) unless I am physically INCAPABLE of doing the assigned challenge. If for some reason this occurs (Like the DOLPHIN thing), I will substitute my own daily challenge. Something in addition to my ordinary fitness routine.
