Dang it delicious dessert!

Thursday, August 26, 2010

Today I completed my first week back to nursing school. I did ok with my diet most of this week, but then the dreaded PMS hit. But, I can't just blame that. I was so stressed and tired today, and I just wanted to feel full. I didn't want to feel my stomach growl, AND be tired. Then...I ate a bunch of these peanut cookie things that were left over from a church activity that was at my house last night. (I didn't make them..but, they were awesome) And when I came home..I saw them, and they were like heaven to me. Sometimes I get tired of trying to keep the ball in the air all the time. I dropped it today. Oh well.

I don't have school tomorrow, but I have LOTS of work to do. But, I will do my workout and take time for me to get fired up again. I am still adjusting to things. I am not going to be hard on myself today.

Also, a girl (who has never had any kids and is in her early 20's mind you) told me today that she weighs 135-140. She is my same height, and looks AMAZING! So, I thought, ok...I have more weight to lose than I thought! I thought 150 was good, but maybe 140 is what I should think about. I know she looks fantastic, but I also don't know if that is possible for me anymore. Would I even be able to get there, much less maintain that? Well, I guess I will see what 155 looks
like. That is my goal for now, and if I need to drop it lower, I guess I can.

    I'm working toward 150. That's reasonable. Well into my healthy bmi range. I figure, if when I reach my goal, if 145 seems attainable, then I'll go for it...then if 140 looks good- I'll go for it too! My ultimate goal is 135, but I'm almost 40...and 135 was like 10th grade high school weight....so I'm thinking 150 is a good goal and then the rest of it is icing on the cake so to speak! =)

    eh....I hit the McFlurry wall this week because of school stress too....Its all good.

    Definitely set yourself a reasonable and maintainable goal and go toward that. If you aren't happy after maintaining 155 for awhile, maybe try to lose 10 more.

    Don't compare yourself to others... especially 20 year olds who've never had kids or perhaps a weight issue. Besides, we're all built so differently that we never look like someone else even at the same weight and height... look your personal best and be confident in that and I bet you that people will be having a hard time not comparing themselves to you!!

    Yes, yes, give yourself time to adjust...I can so relate heading back to work myself this week was absolutely exhausting & staying on track was hard! (We must be on the same PMS calendar, too...LOL.)
    I agree to wait & see what 155 looks like on you, first. Like you said, you can always change your goal lower after that. But, yes, make it something you can easily maintain...metabolism is surely a lot different from your 20s to your 30s. That girl might be able to eat whatever and easily maintain 140. You don't want to have to be "white-knuckling" it to maintain the same thing. That's no way to live.

    Wishing you a great weekend & hoping you do give some time to yourself!!!

    Ok, take it little bits at a time. Comparing yourself to others is not a good thing, now you know that! You are you, so just think about making yourself the best you ever!

    Congratulations on finishing your first week. Wow! That went by fast. Good job for not being too hard on yourself for eating the cookies. If you have been eating pretty well otherwise, it won't matter anyway.

    I hope you are able to get your workout in an refresh today. Keep up the hard work! You are awesome!

    Isn't it so hard to stay away from the goodies? The slightest bit of stress and I'm binging on anything with sugar. 155 -- November. We'll get there!
    In the meantime, my weight won't budge from where it is.
