My parents are finally home, and I must say it's nice to not be the only adult in the house. I talked to my mom for a while, we took Spencer to the park so it was a good chance for me to fill her in about Joe. Obviously I want to sit down with both of them and get their opinions before making a decision, but I think ultimately I'll need to talk to Joe. So hopefully he calls Spencer next week and I can talk to him.
I weighed myself this morning about 15 times. I couldn't get a solid and I think it's because the floor of my bathroom is all little tiles and not flat... I got as low as 201, and as high as 204. The most common numbers were 203.8 and 202.something, so I tracked it as 203.8, which means from my starting weight last week (207- I'm appalled at myself!) I've gone down three pounds... just from tracking the majority of my calories. So, I'm feeling pretty positive and encouraged to keep tracking.
I didn't use my Kindle towards the end of the week, just jotted everything down on paper that I packed in my lunch box. I didn't really have time to log with my Kindle as it does take a little while to enter everything in, and writing it works just as well. I didn't track for dinners, which I definitely have to start doing, but honestly haven't had much of an appetite the past few days anyway.
I'm feeling a lot better. I bought Claritin D and it's really helping. But I'm trying to listen to my body and only eat when I'm hungry, and I just haven't been. Last night I had chicken nuggets (180 calories for 4, I had 6) and that was about it. Today I had a turkey and cheese sandwich on wheat, a few pickle spears, and two Keebler cookies... coffee at "breakfast" time. I'm just not hungry so I don't see the merit in making myself eat more. Oh, I had a banana today too. I think my mom is planning to order pizza for dinner... I might try to talk her into Chinese food as I have REALLY been craving it...for about three weeks now. And I had pizza (one slice, plus the cheese off another slice) yesterday for lunch.
Now that my parents are back I'm looking forward to getting to the gym this coming week! :)
Off for now. Have a great Saturday night, everyone!
