Feeling discouraged today, I know that part of it is the weather and then a big part of it is stress. I thought that things were starting to look up with our finances and then after talking to my husband yesterday realized how bad it still really is (sad thing is he is wearing rose colored glasses and doesn't seem to see how bad it is.) This to shall pass (I just hope sooner rather than later!)
My weighing almost everyday just backfired on me today cause I haven't lost anything since sunday. I have my calorie range set to lose 2lbs per week without exercise and no I haven't been perfect the last couple of days but I have counted everything that has went into my mouth and I've only been over by a little bit and still way way under my BMR. I've also only drank water and although I haven't found time to get in "exercise" I have increased my activity level and to see nothing on the scale just drives me insane. I shouldn't let it get to me, but it's just so frustrating to see no move in the scale. I'm going to stay off of it till Sunday by putting the scale away in the closet and hopefully I'll see some downward motion then.
The weather has been beautiful the last couple of days and I had planned to take my girls to the park for a picknic today, and ofcourse today it is colder than I had planned for it to be and it feels so much colder than they say it is. I'm so ready for spring (but I don't want to think about the hot hot summer.) I went to Walmart this morning and just walked around the garden center day dreaming about my yard and what I want to get done this year (there's lots to do..) I also got me a new pair of garden gloves so I can start pruning bushes, when it warm bacj up again.
Big bad no no, since we are hanging out inside my girls wanted to bake cookies and I agreed. Which I probably should have said no with the mood that I'm in today because I LOVE chocolate chip cookies, and it's so hard to stop at just one. On the bright side I accidently burnt the first pan of cookies lol. I was following the directions from a Hershey's Milk Chocolate Chip package and it said to bake them for 20mins at 375. In my head I thought that sounds like a long time but then I got busy nursing my baby and when the timer went of I pulled out extremely brown/hard cookies. So at least there are 12 cookies that I don't have to be tempted to eat
On a funny note my 10 month cracks me up (well all 3 of them crack me up most of the time) she is pulling herself up and creeping around the couches and walls, and jabbering a mile a minute. I just wonder what is she saying when she is jabbering. Earlier she was sitting on the floor with a book jabbering away at the pages and I really wish I could understand baby speak lol. I love seeing her grow and change but at the same time it's sad to see her growing up since she is my last baby.
Here's hoping that the next couple of days end up being better and that on sunday I see some weight loss...
