He knows I'm trying to follow a strict diet though, and when I caved in and had a half a slice he said "that's my old girl." <BR> Blech. Mon, 21 May 2012 20:43:46 EST Sort of losing motivation http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4889272 Having trouble staying away from the cheesy carbs I crave and making some stupid/not worth it food decisions. I think I need to get a scale so I can see daily what these choices are doing instead of only weighing at the gym... Sun, 20 May 2012 02:06:44 EST Having an issue with protein http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4884488 I seem to be able to stay on track with everything else but I'm always low on protein. I'm eating an egg for breakfast now and a lean meat with lunch and dinner. Still low..... Wed, 16 May 2012 16:44:40 EST Have a cold. Don't feel like eating (yay) but don't feel like excersising(boo) http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4882979 I am planning on going to the gym later but my recess hill run was not at all fun and I feel like junk! I have a wonderful, healthy, lunch packed and no interest in eating it. Uhg, hate being sick it pushes me off track. Tue, 15 May 2012 17:55:05 EST Monday missing my kiddies http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4881286 Monday's are so hard after a whole weekend with my little ones. I'm feeling crummy, sort of wishing I had a cupcake. Mon, 14 May 2012 16:59:24 EST Thinking about giving up a beloved morning ritual due to cals. http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4875945 Well, every morning I have my coffee with a spoonful of mocha powder added in and it tastes sooooooo good. I really look forward to it (sometimes it helps me get out of bed.) <BR> Now that I'm logging my calories and see that it's 100 calories everyday just in my little spoonfuls I feel guilty. I know that I could do away with it and get rid of extra fat, calories, and sugar but I just love the stuff. Uhg, I guess I'll probably switch to skim milk or something else not nearly as luxurious as ... Thu, 10 May 2012 18:09:48 EST Yesterday Over, should I go under today? http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4874332 Yesterday I blew it on calories at dinner- I knew going out would be tough, the first time since I started sparkpeople. Now I'm not sure if I should just stay on track for today or go under in calories to make it up? I know that the healthy thing to do would be to eat right where I'm supposed to but I hate seeing the scale go up! Wed, 9 May 2012 17:11:10 EST Teacher Appreciation Day = everyone gives you cookies http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4872649 I have been handed 3 bags of cookies/candy from well meaning students today! I am looking at my apple and wishing it was a chocolate chip cookie (I gave my cookies away.) But I want to have a nice dinner out with friends tonight and if I eat junk at work I have to eat a sad little salad with no dressing (or no glass of wine with hubby and pals.) I'm seeing now that it is these choices that make the difference. In the past, I would have the cookies, the dinner with appetizers, and the wine. No... Tue, 8 May 2012 16:32:56 EST going out to dinner in 7 hours and already obsessing http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4870987 We almost never go out because we have a 3 year old and a 20 month old (visualize spending money on eating out just to run after 2 screaming monkeys while apologizing to patrons and staff and crawling around the floor picking up all of the food they have thrown.) Tonight we have friends in from out of town and we're getting a baby sitter and going to a GREAT burger restaurant. Not a greasy, fast food type place, a gourmet amazing local beef, local caught fish, really nice burger place. I have... Mon, 7 May 2012 17:22:27 EST That extra glass of wine.... http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4866736 I seem to be able to completely stay on track with my food but that second (or third) glass of wine at the end of the evening especially on weekends, is sometimes putting me over the limit. <BR> I feel grumpy at myself when I have to go back in and log that extra glass after I've already run my report but it's not enough to keep me from wanting that little bit more relaxation after my stressful days (full time job, 2 little kiddies, only one shopping, cooking cleaning etc.) I know that I'm n...
