I'm feeling pretty down on myself right now. My weight has crept up to 192.2. That's the most I've been in a while! I'm hoping it is just water retention from all the sodium I had for dinner last night. I've been doing really good with my eating and meal planning and sticking to it. Last night I had a turkey in the slow cooker. It wasn't done when I got home. And close to dinner time it still wasn't ready! So I ordered pizza. Carry out! I was so disappointed! I had this lovely dinner planned! Ugh! And to top it all off, the turkey was done about half an hour after we ate! I could have prepared everything and just ate a little later. But I was worried about keeping the kids on their schedule. Oh well.
I'm still really sore from Sunday's events! I've been doing these crunches at my desk chair to try to ease the pain from my abs. That's been helping and feels really great! But I feel silly doing them! I don't care though! I'm going to pop in my 20 minute zumba dvd this afternoon before the kids get home. Usually I pick them up but hubby doesn't have to go to his 2nd job so he's going to get them. Then Shiloh has his Kindergarten music program at school tonight! I'm excited about that! He was so nervous last night and this morning!
I think I need to eat more veggies at lunch. I feel like I haven't been eating enough and I've been eating too much fruit. Like today, I had a ham and cheese sandwich with a cutie and apple sauce. Yesterday I ate a chicken wrap with 3 cuties. I feel like I'm getting more fruit in my diet, but i'm subbing them for veggies. This well balanced diet thing is so hard to get under control! I've been doing really good at taking my lunch every day though! I'm super proud of that! I've been getting headaches the last week or so. I think it has something to do with my body adjusting to the lack of sodium in my diet. That's the only thing I can account for. Now that I'm not eating so much fast food I'm not getting so much sodium!
I need more accountability. I think I'm going to start up my weekly goals and follow up blog. That seemed to help a lot. Just wish there was someone close I could be held accountable to. Everyone I've tried working out with or meal planning with has bailed on me. Oh well. I'm still here and trying!
