1/15/13 ~ 217.4

Tuesday, January 15, 2013

We are half way through the month of January. Time to review goals.

1) get below 215.. 217.4
2) workout every day.. check
3) no cheats.. check
4) Spark daily.. check

I may actually accomplish all my goals this month. I have lost 7.8 so far this month, and just need to lose another 2.6. My weight loss is slowing though, so I may cut back on carbs a bit, and up my fat for a few days to accelerate the weight loss, if it drops below the 4/10 ths of a lb I have lost the last 2 days.

I was awoken at 4 a.m. today, and it wasn't the scurrying of mice. My brother ate breakfast yesterday, and took his 2nd meal to school, then came home at noon, and ate his 3rd, AND 4th meal, except for a fruit. He slept in the afternoon, so he ate dinner, his 5th meal at 9 p.m., while we watched Biggest Loser. So 4 a.m., and he was hungry again, so he had breakfast. Then at 10 a.m., he ate 2 bologna sandwiches, which is 2nd and 4th meal for him. So he has 2 fruit, and a can of vegetables left till dinner. He also took 2 fiber bars, which is an extra 280 calories. Then a dinner of chicken and noodles. He says he has lost 1 lb, and I have lost 8/10ths of one. The difference is that I am not hungry, and I am eating on plan. I wish he could eat low carb but he doesn't like it. He also doesn't do it correctly, and has a tantrum when I try to explain He thinks I am a perfectionist. I think details make a difference.

So I am considering what kind of camera I want. Of course, I will take pictures of him, but I may stencil my name in the MINE. Funny thing is, he is eating this way because he is in a nutrition class, and is following their advice. So as most people can understand.. he is starving, and miserable. The Standard American Diet ( SAD ). I am okay as long as he continues to lose weight, and I lose

So I am down to 217.4 today. I haven't lost weight this regularly in a while. No stops, or gains so far. I had my 5 eggs and cup of mushrooms with butter for breakfast. Then I did my 90 minute walk at the gym. I just ate lunch of 3 chicken thighs with skin on, and 1 can of green beans ( 1.75 cups ). Now I have to do my band workout. Back, biceps, shoulders, and abs.
My plan for today is to read The Silent Man by Alex Berenson.. third book in the series. Also may test out my pillows, and see if my face fits well into naptime at 38 is better than it was at 8. Nothing on TV last night, but Biggest Loser was 2 hours, and there were two 1 hour episodes of Bones, so I just watched Biggest Loser. I figured if Biingo was limited to 2 hours of screen time, I would do the same, excluding computers..shh! Today I will just watch the Bones shows.

I feel kind of blah right now. I am eating food, sleeping, and the days are passing, but it is too cold to go outside, and not much to do, a slow period of the year. Tomorrow I have basketball, which will include more talking to other people, so hopefully I get a boost. Then Thursday I turn 39, but that just means I have 365 days left till 40, and I want to be at GW by then. I would say that I was worried about cheating because I am bored, but I am not even thinking about it, which is weird. I am just

Other than boredom, my life is going great. I hope you are all having a wonderful day.

    I always enjoy reading your blogs, I have been a member here since last february and ive always admired anyone who blogs regularly i am sort of off and on about it. But ive lost 60 pds since last february and im about 10-20 tops from goal, so im happy im pre diabetic ive been eating fairly low carb since last february except since thanksgiving ive been not binging by any means but nibbling more than i should with sweets gained back about 3 pds which isnt so bad but more importantly wanna try and keep diabeties at bay or at least under control. So your blogs and many others here motivate me thanks for sharing! emoticon

    I found a better site to stream BL, so re-watching episode one now.

*nods* filling your tummy with carbs is a recipe for feeling hungry soon, nutrition classes may be useful in some ways, but certainly only for selling conventional wisdom.

I'm doing a project with the children at work about basic healthy eating and I feel guilty peddling so many carbs! But not sure I can explain low carb to 3 and 4 year olds! *laughs*

    Perfectionist? Ha,ha! People who accuse you of that may just be a little jealous of your success. emoticon
I think if you keep going like this you'll reach your goal much earlier. emoticon emoticon
