Rainy Friday

Friday, February 17, 2012

I have a case of the blah's. Just hoping this weekend will be just what is needed to get me out of the slump. I'm going to be cleaning this weekend, not much else to do when it's supposed to be raining all the time. Hopefully, I can stay well enough to actually clean what needs to be done. I really feel something "coming on", though.

On a better note, we are slated to go to Daytona in about two weeks. My husband and I, his step-father, and his son. We were supposed to be going for Bike Week, but the hotel (not my responsibility) was booked for what was thought was Bike Week, March 3-11. Bike Week is March 9-18. My husband says it's because the Daytona 500 was pushed back to later in February. Whatever. In any case, we are still doing the Bruce Rossmeyer, Iron Horse, Main Street thingy, just not when actually anything is going on, actual BW stuff. Which could be good, not as many people! Not so good, swap meet doesn't start until the 9th!

Since my weight has not budged one bit, even with eating less and walking more, doing strength exercises, I have given up my original goal of losing 20 pounds by BW and am focusing just on not eating because I'm depressed. I can't give up, but it's really hard because when you're actually trying, nothing happens!

    Plateaus are so depressing. Had months and months of that then I changed my main meal from evening to middle of the day and mixed and matched my exercises a bit different. Lost 1 kilo in 1 week, but nothing this week.

    Maybe a changing up will help you.

    i am certainly trying that, anyway! skipping the sweets and snacks that are always in the house and eating off of a smaller plate. not eating as many white carbs as i used too; i could down a couple of cups of rice and soy sauce and not blink (i love rice!). my trick is to dish out everyone else's plates, grab the dessert plate or saucer to eat off of, piling on the veges, a serving of meat, and then if i have enough room, a tablespoon or so of carbs (rice, potatoes, pasta, etc). i love hot peppers, so i will snack on some of them. i have gotten used to brushing my teeth directly after dinner. stops the nighttime snacking, but also stops drinking :/ i haven't really stopped myself from snacking on chocolate or other sweets, but it's nowhere near as often or as much. if i don't have enough calories to spare, the snack gets skipped. ugh, just got to try to get over the hump!
