Weight Loss Ticker

Wednesday, August 29, 2012


Weigh in this morning was up, so increasing calories isn't going to work.

I'm on track for 1200 today, water is down, and I'm getting ready to get on the treadmill for my intervals.

I'm focusing on not stress eating, and am pretty sure I know what's for dinner so I can plan ahead.

My sister-in-law moved back to town, but I haven't seen her yet. I have such mixed feelings about the whole situation. I try to remember that I should love her because God loves her, but she has such an entitled attitude its hard. Its easier to love my brother's wife even though she gets on my nerves, but I've had 20+ years experience dealing with Kristine.

Final calories for the day, about 1400.  I was trying to increase to 1300, but miscalculated how many calories were in spaghetti noodles. 

But overall a good day.  I got exercise today, plenty of water, and the calories were as I said above.

Tonight, I"m spending a lot of time yawning, so once I get my email cleaned out, I'm going to go to bed early.


So, Saturday calories were okay. Sunday's weigh-in was down a bunch - from 210.2 to 205.6, though I saw 204.2 Saturday morning.

Yesterday I went over by a lot. We went to Golden Corral and I did really good. I would have been around 1200 except I had dessert and a roll. Bad idea.

I'm back on track and hoping to see a loss again this week.

So I was so proud of myself staying around 1200 calories yesterday.

Tonight, dinner was a waffle and eggs, and I went over by 200 calories, my total was about 1400 calories.  Ugh.  It's not bad, but more than my goal. 


Aug 24, TGIF

Things I learned this week include that I can fit an occasional McDonalds trip in and still hit only 1200 calories. Does this mean it'll be a common occurrence? No, but on days where I need to grab a quick lunch for my 3 yo, I can have 4 nuggets and half a small fry and still stay in calorie range.

Yesterday's calories - approximately 1250. Water and a walk, but no strength exercises.

On track so far today, and got in 20 mins of intervals in about 1 minute. About 100 minutes of exercise so far this week

Calories for today, 1250 or thereabouts.  It's been a rough day foodwise, but I'm hanging on. 

Water was good.  I got 30 minutes of exercise in.  I keep reminding myself that I saw 207.2 this morning after flirting with 210 for the last couple of weeks.  My goal is to keep going, even through catered lunches (like today) or whatever comes at me. 

Right now, I'm chewing gum because my husband bought trail mix.  I told him he was being mean to me, that I had had my calories for the day, but he didn't get it.  Grr.

I do need to do a few things, and I need a shower after sweating so much today. 

Laterness & g'night.

Tuesday, August 21

Calories for yesterday, 1250.  Exercise and water were good.

Today, my calories are at about 1120, but I was stuffed at dinner, so I'm calling it good.  I did a 10 minute walk, 5 minutes on the elliptical, 15 push-ups, crunches, butterflies (where you lie on your belly and lift your arms and legs backward), and 15 lunges.  Water was about 100 oz, less than yesterday, but still on track.

The alarm went off early this morning.  Hubby figured out how to reset the alarm on my phone, so he set it for 5:30 when I normally don't get up til 6.  I was NOT a happy camper.

I still need to clean out my inbox and get to bed.  I'm tired, and I'm trying to start getting more sleep.

Laterness & g'night.

Monday, Aug 20

Friday's calories weren't great, but weren't horrid. I had about 1700 calories Friday, and no exercise.

Today, I'm on track for 1200 calories and I got a 10 minute walk for first break and 20 minutes of intervals at lunch. The plan is in place for this week.

August 16, Thurs

Final calorie count today, 1290.  I went a bit over, I shouldn't have had that 2nd banana.

I'm kinda feeling disjointed tonight, and really need to journal again.  I've been having trouble relaxing, and tonight I was clenching my jaw.

Exercise was 30 minutes total.  Water was 128 oz.  Food was 1290 calories.  A 3-star day.

Now if I could just figure out some things with the work situation.  I may be offered another job with another company.  Or I may not.  I'm just not sure if I should take it since they took me back where I am, and I know they need me.

I'm just so confused.  And stressed.  And ready to sleep.

Laterness & g'night.


So fasting bloodwork means I had a bad day foodwise. About 1800 calories for the day. It could have been worse, but more than my 1200 calorie goal.

Yesterday I got 1217 calories and a 10 minute walk. Today is looking good so far, I'm walking now.

Monday, August 13, 2012


I ended the day at 1245 calories.  A bit over where I wanted to be, but not bad.  I got about 128 oz of water, and 30 minutes of exercise.

Tomorrow I have a doctor's appointment with fasting blood work.  It should make things interesting since I'm going to be starving by the time I can eat.  I'm already hungry.  I know I'll live, but I'm not going to be happy about it for a bit lol.

No sugar today either, though it was tempting.  I had pineapple and banana, so I got my fruits, no veggies.  I need to work on that too, but my selections were limited for dinner tonight.  Sweet and Sour chicken, pork and beans, chips.  The chicken was good though.

I'm getting tired, so I'm going to read for about 10 minutes, then go to bed.

Laterness & g'night.

Aug 13, bird poop in a drought

Wouldn't you know, I find out that the car washes are closed because of the drought, and birds mess on my car. Blech.

I'm back on track, and determined to hit my next goal - 180 lbs. Food is on track so far today. I took a walk this morning and am getting ready for 30 minutes on the treadmill.
