All over the place

Sunday, December 09, 2012

The last week or so I feel like I've been all over the place. Friday was sort of my splurge day. I went over my calories by 400. I suppose it isn't too bad. Before that though I've been on the high end of my calories for awhile now and have been struggling with still being hungry.

I've been fairly good on working out though so I've still managed to lose about 5 pounds. Then again who knows. It could just be the daily fluctuations that occur anyways. I'm trying to stay positive and think that it has more to do with my efforts.

I'm just not sure what to do anymore though. I was reading other people's blogs for inspiration over the weekend and was surprised to see how little people really eat and how much they work out. It kind of makes me wonder if I still don't have a handle on things and need to make more drastic changes.

This weekend hasn't helped any. I've been so bored with everything. I always think that I should try and make the most of my weekends and not only get the chores that I put off during the week but also do something fun. To say it didn't happen though would be an understatement. I stayed home pretty much the whole weekend except for running errands and trying to fill my day. I even went to the grocery store twice for something to do. Well that and to get some really great deals ($.97 cartons of eggs and BOGO low fat tortillas @ HT!!) and some fresh fruit to start the week off right.

I'm trying to branch out though so I'm not so bored. I was looking for volunteer events and came across a volunteer organization that just so happens to be having an open recruiting meeting on Tuesday. I'm really looking forward to it. I'm hoping that something good will come out of it. Maybe this way I can find something productive to do with my time. I need something. I have no problem staying home during the week but for some reason when it comes to the weekend I just can't seem to stay home. Goodness knows my bank account and shopping addiction can't handle it.

I'm hoping this week goes well though. In fact I know it will. I'm just going to go ahead and call it now. I'll let you know how my meeting goes on Tuesday and if I join the group.

In the meantime I'm off to go boil some water for hard boiled eggs and finish watching Downton Abby.

    Wow...a 5 pound weight loss is fantastic! I wouldn't think you would need to eat less...especially if you are hungry at the high end of your calorie range. Good for you for your weight loss!
