Today was a bit rough around the edges...
Sunday, August 23, 2009
Two major tantrums later, I think JP is ready for bed. I had a list of things to do today, managed to get the shopping done - didn't have much choice on that, especially if I wanted to eat tomorrow! He was feeling well enough to go to the park today, so I had a good walk, but I'm pretty sure my pedometer didn't capture the uphill walking, which will be frustrating considering the hills around here...will have to figure something out - wish I could take the pedometers for "test walks". I'll take recommendations!
Having a problem when I get busy on weekends eating enough to meet my calorie goal - I tend to be go go go and put off eating. It's especially hard when my scheduling is thrown off, like it was this weekend with JP getting sick and being housebound.
But still, overall I lost another 4 pounds - didn't lose any last week, so this sort of makes up for that. I need to work out the calorie in/calorie burned ratio, though - I don't want to lose too fast because then I'm afraid of gaining it back. I'm hoping I can get the eating on an even keel this week and then next week figure out the right exercise to keep me going without over doing it. I tend to get lost in the excitement of new things, such as SP, and can get off to a really great start...and then sputter and burn out. Trying to avoid the whole burn out, but if I don't slow down, I know it will happen. Just need to take it easy and see this as a race to win...I only like to compete against myself, but this is NOT a competition, this is a lifestyle I intend to carry forward til I die.
Cheers all, and have a great week!
