Use By Date is No Joke!

So I don't have a whole lot going on lately. I haven't been super consistent with tracking, which I need to get better at. I go through a few days where I'm great at tracking everything and then I don't for a few days...then I do... then I don't... I am slowly getting back into working out. I wanted to work out yesterday, but I felt like I might toss my cookies all day yesterday and the night before, and also had to tutor from 7-8:00 last night and decided that working out was not a good idea. I fought to get through the day and stopped and got some Pepto and ginger-ale on my way home from work. I took the Pepto as soon as I got in the door (after having a 40 minute conversation with "The Boy"- he had had a rough day and needed to vent about it). Luckily the Pepto worked.
I had felt really horrible since eating some pasta and hamburger meat with sauce the night before. The "Use By" date was 2-20-13, but i smelled the meat, looked at it a few times and decided that it should be fine to eat... I'm not completely positive it was the meat, but I started feeling sick about 30-45 minutes after eating it. I slept horribly Sunday night and just hoped for a snow day (we had a pretty nice snow storm on Sunday) but all I got was a 1 hour delay (teachers still had to report at the normal time). I got through yesterday by trying to not stand or move much. I felt bad because I had a MUCH shorter fuse with my students yesterday than I usually do. Anywho, last night by about 8:30 I was feeling a little better, took 2 more Pepto capsules (I can't stand liquid medicine) and went to bed at 8:45. I'm still not sure how much I'll be eating today (don't want to push it) but I definitely feel more "normal" today. I might work out today before I go to tutor again, but we shall see how the day goes.
I've almost been "craving" to go workout the last week or 2, but have only been a few times. I need to get back into the swing of things and just make it a habit again. I've just been feeling SOOOO lazy. I get home and just want to sit around or go to "The Boy's" and hang out with him haha. I've been pretty good about eating 2-3 meals a day and maybe a snack thrown in. I need to still work on that piece, but its definitely better than it used to be.
I feel like I've just been going back and forth between the same 8 pounds lately. I've finally started to consistently go down which has been nice for a change. I just want to get into two-derville. 17 pounds to go and I'll finally be there- I know I can do it- but I definitely need to up my game. I want to be down to 295 by my birthday (June 2). I think I can do it, I just need to focus!!
I hope that everyone is having a great week!
Until Next Time
