Weight Loss Ticker

July 23, Monday

Calories Friday, around 2000 because of hubby's birthday. It could have been much worse, but I should have made better choices earlier in the day.

Today, I'm on track to have about 1200 calories, as long as I'm careful at dinner. I've done 30 minutes of exercise, though I didn't want to do the treadmill at lunch. I'm stretching right now, then heading up to eat my tuna lunch.

July 20

One walk yesterday, and 1600 calories. I ate too much during the day and it threw off my calorie count. Today my goal is 1400, it'll be fun with my husband's birthday dinner at Applebees.

I'm seeing progress, I just need to keep tracking and paying attention. My weight needs to go back under 200. My goal now is to weigh less than my Marine. Itd be the first time in his life, but he's bulked up and weighs 180 right now.

July 18

My mistake, yesterday I only had 1145 calories, not 1245.  Today, 1387, even with about 1/2 bottle of Lipton iced tea with lemon.

I'm craving sweets, but I really need to control it.

Onward.  Laterness & g'night.

July 18, one step, one day

Yesterday, food was 1245 calories. I only got 1 walk in, but more than 100 oz of water. Overall a good day.

I finished Monday with 1595 calories, which I'll consider acceptable with 2 walks, one pushing myself on the treadmill.

Today, I'm at 600 calories so far with 2 more walks. Water is close to 128 oz. Dinner is up in the air, but portion sizes will be watched.

July 16, ugh

So this weekend, something snapped. Someone at church asked if I was gaining weight. I've put on 15 lbs from my lowest weight, and I need to stop. I know its hard living with the grandparents, I can't let it be an excuse.

I know its going to require extra focus since they don't exactly eat healthy, but I can eat right for at least 2 meals a day, and go easy the third.

So far today, I'm on track, and I've gotten in 30 minutes of exercise. Lunch is a tuna kit. I need to get veggies that I can add to my meals.

July 12, blah blah blah

Food was actually not bad today until tonight when I let frustration and my emotions over my son convince me that I needed ice cream. I did keep it to a single dip Braum's ice cream cone, but I went over my calories.

I'm going to take tomorrow one step at a time. Breakfast is either eggs or oatmeal, whichever I have time for. Lunch is a tuna kit and at least a banana. Dinner is a small portion of whatever they make. But at least one walk is in order, if not 20 minutes on the treadmill as well.

I need to get some sleep. I got the refill for my meds, but the depression is still kicking my butt.

Laterness & g'night
I'm having issues with mobile posting. I'll post again tonight

July 11, cleaning

My stomach has been fine today, but I had diarrhea. Tonight, my stomach is cramping like crazy and I'm nauseous. What fun.

Tomorrow is a meeting with Blue Star Mothers that I want to go to if I'm up to it.

Food today wasn't bad, I just ate too much. Way too much. No exercise, just 64 oz of water. I need to focus and do better.

I'm feeling ill enough that's it for tonight. Laterness & g'night

July 10, closing

So today we closed on the house. Its going to need a lot of work before we can live in it. I'm so excited and scared at the same time. We so need to get out of the grandparents house. I really do appreciate they let us stay here while we were looking for a place, but I also really do feel we have overstayed our welcome.

Food was still horrid today, but I got a walk in, and I think I got enough water. At least 80 oz. Not the 128 I had been drinking, but its been a crazy day.

My thoughts are still on my Marine in Afghanistan. I miss talking to him, though I'm sure we won't ever be as close as we were.

I need to get some sleep. I spent too much time trying to figure out how to make a slideshow with Photoshop. I used to do it, but that was before I got CS5.

Laterness & g'night.

July 9, Monday

Today was a total failure on the food front. I didn't even manage a walk. All of the progress I've made has come to a stand-still. I ran out of anti-depressants on Friday, and the panic attacks started back today. Plus all the stuff in the news about attacks in Afghanistan.

In my head, I know I'd know before the news sites if anything happened to my son, but that didn't stop the tears today, and tonight.

And I started TOM today, 3 days early, with horrible cramps. Or maybe I lost count and am actually 4 days late - thatd certainly explain the cramps.

I'm not sleeping well lately on top of everything else, maybe I need a different anti-depressant - or a stronger dose. I'm going to wait until I know its not monthly hormones, but it didn't seem that the meds were working very well, I was still getting panic attacks, just not as bad as they had been.

I guess I'd best get some sleep. I know I need it. Laterness & g'night.

July 7, Here I am to...

A worship song from church this morning is running through my head. It has been a long few weeks. And of course, just as the anti-depressants kicked in, the script was done, and I didn't have refills. I'm going to have to call the clinic tomorrow.

My weight hasn't moved, not really. Its not really a surprise either since I'm not actually tracking anything. I've been floating around 205 for a couple of months now.

Tomorrow I start tracking again. I start walking again. I start doing what I should to be healthy. My goal is 1200 calories, but I won't freak about 1400. Walking and water are a given as well.

Laterness & g'night
