Right choices

I'm working at making right choices one by one. Today I wanted a scone but I chose to eat what I have at work.

June 4th - back at work

I did my tracking this weekend but didn't blog. I'm going to have to work on that.

So I was on plan this weekend - I even went to the gym on Saturday, though I couldn't go to yoga - the class I was going to has been discontinued. I did 45 minutes on a recumbant stair climber. I'm sore 3 days later.

Monday I took off work to do some things I can't on the weekends and work on the house. I only managed 30 minutes on the treadmill.

Today, no exercise but I ate within my 1200 calories.

June 1, another month gone

It's after 9 tonight, so I can proudly say that I made it through the day on plan.  It was hard, and I did eat more than 1200 calories, BUT I spent 30 minutes on a recumbent stepper, then I did 10 reps of various leg and arm weights.  I'm sore all over, but I know it's good.

Net calorie intake today, 1200 calories per MyFitnessPal.  Lose It! has about the same.  I'm logging in 2 places to try to make sure that I'm doing what I'm supposed to.

I also got the water I was supposed to get today.  That's another thing I haven't been good about on the weekends.  I let my water intake drop drastically.

All in all, it's a good day.  We'll see what the scale says tomorrow, though I won't let it rule my mood.  I'm getting hungry while I play with the design on my blog.  Maybe I should go to sleep instead now.

May 30 where does the time go?

I'm mostly on plan so far today. I will be in my calorie range. I grabbed a Twizzler licorice string earlier. About 40 calories wasted and it wasn't even that good. I'm chewing gum right now to get through the sweet craving I have now.

I forgot to post this but I finished the dsy on plan. On to Friday :)

Starting May 29

I'm trying for accountability right now. Its time to get serious about getting the rest of the way to my goal.

I'm back at 1200 to 1300 calories and exercising daily.

So far at 375 calories and 15 minutes of walking.

I've also finished 64 oz of water already too. I'm eating sugar free candy to offset sweet cravings.

End of the day and I'm at 1205 calories but am a little light on the veggies. I got 30 minutes of walking. I am a bit hungry but I'm done for the day.

March 19

Today I ate on plan or at least stayed in my calorie range... And I got in my circuit workout today.

I got plenty of stress too, but no stress eating.

I will admit to venting to must mother this morning. My living situation is difficult at best, and I have to bite my tongue at home. I can't wait until we're back in our own place so I can have some peace with my kids.
And of course tom is coming soon so all I want to do is cry. Tonight autocorrect isn't helping lol.

Laterness and g'nite.

March 11

The 11th is a big day for my family. Between myself and my six siblings (including half siblings), four of us have birthdays on the 11th of the month.

Today I'm on plan and feeling in control. I'm aiming for 1200 calories to make up for being out of control last week.  I wasn't up that much, just too close to the 1584 calories that Lose It! Gives me for the day.

Breakfast was an English muffin and peanut butter. Lunch canned salmon on a sandwich round and a bowl of green giant veggies for one.

Well its now almost 5, I'm hungry but still on plan. Water is my best friend.

March 8

I have a wedding rsvp I keep forgetting at home and I was supposed to give it to her today. I've verbally told her I'm going but I still want to give her the rsvp.

Hubby works Sunday again. I'm going to have to step up on the work on the house aol it gets done. It'll be interesting since I have a busy Saturday anyway.  I'll have to leave the house earlier so I can get food for lunches too.

At least I'm planning my food ;-)

I have exercise planned as well, 1 hr of yoga tomorrow and 2 -30 minute circuit classes.

March 7

We're having a pot luck today. It's going to be a difficult day to stay on plan. But I'm going to do circuit before I eat. I might be the only one in our department who goes but I think it'd be good for me.

Wednesday Mar 6

Today food was on plan. I've been tracking with the Lose It! App on my phone. That lets me eat what the grandparents make without hurting their feelings but still stay between 1200 and 1500 calories. I'm not losing as fast as I did at a straight 1200 but with focus and exercise my weight is going down as long as I am careful that I stay as much on the low end of the calorie range as possible.

My Marine is home from Afghanistan so I have that much less to worry about but I really wish we had the money to get into our own place.

So many times over the last week, I've dreamed that I was finally able to move to Fla and live near my family permanently... Its so hard to be so far away. In my dreams, something has happened to my husband which is why I was able to buy the house next to my sister. My dreams have been very bittersweet lately.

Anyway I'm tired. Weigh in tomorrow.

Laterness & g'nite

March already?

LaternessSo i finally found a way around the issue with not being able to post through sms. I now have a better phone and a blogger app.

I need to post a full update at some point but not tonight. Needless to say I'm back and back on plan.

Lateness & g'nite.

Jan 1st pm

So I found some funky things that happen when I post by SMS text.  I'm working on a different way to do this, and we'll see if I found a way later.

I'm not sore from Yoga any more, and that's a good thing.  I went out and got some things done at the house, another good thing.

I'm so looking forward to being in the house eventually.  Right now, it's rather drafty and cold, but once we get electricity and walls in there, it'll do a lot better.

As soon as we get our W2's, I'm planning on filing our taxes.  Hopefully we'll get enough back to at least pay for the electrical work so we can get the walls done.  Then we'd just have to come up with another $2k for the plumbing.  I know it's not a lot of money, we just have crappy credit and can't seem to do anything else right now.

Tomorrow I'll start journaling my food, that's when I do best.  I have yoga for relaxation at work, and need to take a trip to Wal-Mart tomorrow night for my SIL who is just about out of diapers and wipes and doesn't have a job and her TANF was reduced, though she paid the electricity for the people she's staying with and now she is short for the month.  It'll be interesting, since she asked to borrow $50, and I don't want to give her that much...

January 1st

And so a new year begins. Happy new year, and my we meet all of our goals for 2013. One of my goals is to get back to where I was before. I started yoga on Saturday, and I'm watching my food.
