Somebody stop me!

UGH, been on an unhealthy kick again. It seems like it starts with a cold or illness and all rules get tossed out the window and I have a hard time picking back up. Well, it doesn't help that I haven't been 100% healthy for about five weeks.

Well, mom and dad are going to be here next week. I'm going to try to ease back into this though. So even if we eat out and snack a lot I will at least try to get back to my water drinking and daily vitamin until they are gone...

Thanks to those that have emailed and/or commented your thoughts have not gone un-noticed and appreciated, I just haven't been ready.

BTW, I need to update my ticker. Yesterday I ventured onto the scale and was at 261.

Not a suggested way to lose weight!

Well, so far I'm down 5 lbs+ in the last day. I had gone up a couple from some unhealthy choices. But I got the stomach flu. The kind that sends you to the potty several times an hour. It is not over yet. But perhaps getting to a new low will get me motivated to get back on track. Still not ready for salads. So for now, I'm just eating what I can stomach. So far that's been one muffin today.

Thank you to all those of you that tried to track me down when I dissappeared last week. Keep at me, it really does help! Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!

Where have I been and am I back?

Well, I haven't had a horrible week away. I've been doing OK until last night when I had a high carb high calorie night. Friend called, headed to town, I'll write more later. If you don't see me, TRACK ME DOWN!!! I need the accountability!

Shopping went well.

Yesterday I went shopping and bought all healthful foods except for a bag of donuts I bought for the three year old because he asked and couldn't resist. I should have just bought him one of those individual packages in hind sight. Because I lasted all morning and then caved and ate about 6-7 of them in the afternoon! That's like 400 calories! UGH! And it was mindless too. If I had to have them I should have taken two or three out of the bag and put the rest away in the other room. But no I opened the bag and plopped down in front of the TV.

A funny thing though when my kids got home and raided the fridge my eight year old brought in the acorn squash I had bought and said, "mom this pumpkin isn't ripe." I thought that was so cute.

This morning I went and worked in her class at school making copies for the teacher and stuff. That was nice. I'm going to do that every Wednesday now.

My moods are still not great. I've been forgetting my multi-vitamin and I haven't exercised since Sunday!!!

I will not let my self lose sight of my goals!

Lots of Exercise!

Yesterday, I took the kids to the park to hike AFTER having worked on the renovation of my daughters' room all morning. We hiked 1.25 miles up and down hills and across bridges. The kids especially enjoyed the swinging bridge. I wish I had taken my camera. There were some really neat red mushrooms. Of course there were plenty of mosquitos, but I didn't end up with too many bites. After our hike we went to the playground and then put our feet in the swimming lake. It was a really nice time. BUT, I don't think I'll be taking the three year old on that long of a hike next time. I ended up having to carry him about a third of the way. Incidently, I've lost about as much as he weighs so I suppose it was a good recollection of hiking at my highest weight.

So how did I eat yesterday? Well. OK. No bad portions. Lots of water. But not enough veggies. In my defense the pickin's are getting very slim around here. I'll be grocery shopping tomorrow. I do have enough lettuce and tomato left for a salad. I'll be having that for lunch today.

I ate...

Well, I finally got motivated to do something. I cleaned the kitchen. Then I made dinner and chocolate cake. I believe I stayed within my goal of 1500-1800 calories today. But I did not get all the veggies I should have for the second day in a row. Tomorrow I will have a big salad for lunch!

Here is my plan for tomorrow:

Coffee - espresso and 2% milk

Breakfast - 1 waffle, syrup and butter, 4 oz OJ

Snack - mixed raw nuts

Lunch - Salad with tilapia

Dinner - Chicken, Brown Rice and green beans

Dessert - Leftover chocolate cake

Also, I promised my daughter I would take her hiking tomorrow. So there's my exercise!

Headed to get one last glass of water and multi-vitamin and then go to bed with hubby. There's exercise for today ;-)


I'm in some kind of a funk. I can't get motivated. I haven't eaten bad things today. But I just haven't eaten! I've had about 200 calories and its 2:46 p.m.!

Somebody slap me!

I'm going to eat something now!
