Whew it feels good to get a whole week of staying in my calorie range behind me! It also doesn't hurt that I seemed to lose about 7 lbs in a week. I doubt I actually lost 7 lbs because last week was shark week plus I was eating a bunch of crap so I'm sure I was like double bloated. haha Gross huh? So I now weigh 213 lbs which puts me back at 100 lbs lost which I am extremely happy about. Next goal is to get back into Onederland. I'm gonna bust my butt & see if I can't make that happen by the end of the month. 13 lbs in one month? For me with my usual weight loss rate it seems a little out of reach but I am going to be optimistic & work really hard & see where that gets me. Can't hurt. And if I don't make that goal then at least I know I got as close as I possibly could which is fine with me.
Next Monday I am going to start the South Beach Diet. I'm waiting until next week because I still have a lot of frozen dinners & other food that I need to eat but that don't fit in the diet plan. I hate to waste food & money so I'm going to eat the food I have but start phasing it out. So when I go to the store later this week I'm just going to buy food that I can eat on SB until all the food that doesn't fit in the plan is eaten & then I can start the SBD. I'm excited to give it a try. I'm going to try doing it without counting calories since you don't have to on this diet but if I stall with my weight loss or gain I'm going to start counting them again to make sure I'm not eating too much. I've read a lot of people say that eating this way makes them have less cravings. If it works for me I would be ecstatic because I feel like I am constantly battling food cravings. I'm always telling myself "no Angela you don't need that it doesn't fit in your calorie range" but it makes me feel deprived & it's like this constant battle so if I could lose that it'd be awesome! haha
I'm still not exercising the way I said I was going to. I have got to start taking my dog for walks. Right now I just take him outside & let him run around while I watch & read a book. lol Talk about lazy! I just hate exercising outside here. It's always so darn windy! And if I wait to only exercise outside on nice days I'll like never do it. haha Maybe I should start doing some exercise DVD's. I hate exercising indoors though. haha I am just going to have to compromise though. I'm going to get a couple of Jillian DVD's & try to exercise outside with the dog when it is nice. Just 30 minutes. That is like no time. I used to exercise like an hour a day. I don't know why I can't commit to just 30 minutes. I'm just always so tired after work that all I want to do is relax. I do have a pretty physical job though. I never sit down unless I'm driving a tractor. haha I walk all day long so that may be why I'm having such a hard time wanting to do anything else when I get home. But my dog NEEDS the exercise so I feel like I'm being a bad owner by not taking him for longer walks. He does come with me at night when I go over to the farm to check on my birdies but other than that he pretty much just runs outside in the yard while I sit on my butt & read. haha I am going to make myself start walking longer.
I'm not used to having a house of my own to take care of. Right now there are like a million bugs getting into my house. I bought some buy spray to spray around the perimeter of the house to try & keep them out so I have got to do that tomorrow. Also there a like a million flies here & they freaking BITE! I've never had to deal with that before but it's horrible & I have to figure out some way to get rid of them. So if anyone has any suggestions on that I'd like to know. haha I also need to get something to get rid of all the dang weeds. They're like taking over. lol And I need to think about doing some landscaping or at least buy some potted plants to put outside because it looks sad out there. haha
Anyway I have so much stuff I could keep babbling on about but I think that's enough for now.
Hope everyone has a wonderful weekend!
