Good morning friends.
I am feeling a bit discouraged! Yesterday was a great day, I ate good, but I did not get to walk on my lunch like I wanted to. My daughter calls me from school & says that she forgot to bring her basketball jersey with her. It was a MUST that she had it! So, instead of getting to walk, I drove 16 miles to my house & then another 15 or so to the school then 20 back to work. HUGE round trip...that doesn't bother me, that's the joys of parenthood! I told myself right after that phone call that I would go home, fix dinner for Hubbs & B & then go walk the neighborhood for an hour. It was 50 degrees & I was all siked up to put on a hoodie & beanie & head out! I had already done several resistance band excersises at my desk, several wall push ups and squats on my bathroom breaks & even threw in some jump squats when no one was looking! I had this... I was easily going to make up for not walking. Plus, an older gentleman that I work with really made my day yesterday by telling me that I look FABULOUS & that he is real proud of me in how well I have done losing weight. That made my day!! So what happened?? CHIPS & HOT SAUCE!! It is my weakness. I made the family taco ring for supper. It is so good!! SOOOO GOOOD! I was planning to go walk while they ate. My husband decided he wanted to go walk with me so I waited. While I waited, I let the chips & salsa get the better of me. I ended up eating enough to fill me up, then had a piece of taco ring on top of that. is the bad part.... WE DIDN'T GO WALK. emoticon We both used the excuse that it was now too chilly & dark to go & NCIS was coming on. OMG So now I am stupid full & didn't burn hardly any calories for the day. I pouted for the rest of the night over it.

Well, I get up this morning with a better attitude, it was one mess up evening, today is a new day! Although I had to wake up at 4:30am to be able to get my girl to BBall practice on time, I was in a fab mood! Hair looks good, make up looks good, everything went smoothly..YES! I had, what I thought was a good breakfast. Egg whites, 3/4 cup ground sausage, some grape tomatoes, glass of juice & a string cheese stick!! was so good. Then I go to track my breakfast...after i had already ate it...and HOLY MACARONI...660 calories in 3/4 cup of ground pork sausage. emoticon I never knew, never even thought to look. It was already cooked from a few nights ago, so there was no package to double check. my breakfast ended up being over 700 calories. DARN.

My plan? Well, do the best I can today. I will do the normal bathroom excersises, drink my water, walk on lunch & both breaks, & go to the gym tonight. I may even stay an hour instead of my normal 30 minutes in the circuit room.

Now that I have gotten all of this off of my chest...I feel a little better. I just know it's going to be discouraging again when i get hungry in a couple of hours. I brought good foods, but still!!!

Hope everyone else has a good day!! Hopefully I can get over this & get my fab mood back!

    The fact that you are taking the time to balance "real life" and fitness together is something to be very proud about. emoticon
So you didn't get a walk in, or you had sausage for breakfast. At least your not throwing in the towel over it.
You have a great attitude, and it really sounds like you've made some long lasting lifestyle changes. Remember the positives, they'll get you further. emoticon emoticon

    Well, if you're low carb, don't worry about the calories as long as your carbs are low and your fat is high. You may not lose any fat during this 24 hour period but you won't gain any either. Just don't ever put the sausage on toast or a bagel and wash it down with OJ!!! Here's a handy calculator for ketosis:

    I've done that thing with underestimating calories, last time it was humous, which is supposed to be very healthy- but oh the calories. I expect that's why it's a good reason to track our food, well one of the reasons anyway. Never mind it's behind you now so enjoy the rest of your day.
