How in the world do you get around that?!

It was a baseball theme so I guess they were going with the theme.

Oh well, tomorrow is a new day.
I love all of those things. Hang in there sweetie. you're right, tomorrow is another day.

Tomorrow is going to have to be another day!

 

I had chinese for dinner. It could have been much worse. I ordered steamed chicken and broccoli with the sauce on the side. I didn't even eat all of it, but I did indulge in a crab rangoon, an egg roll, and some of DH's sesame chicken.

 

I am not off to a good start.

 

We also have TONS of candy in our house for the upcoming Candy Bar at our AHR. If it isn't here, I don't miss it, but the dark chocolate truffles are seriously calling my name!

Well I was half way decent today. Had to have my Saturday sbcucks (the furbaby go through the drive thru every Saturday after her school, its ritual), then had a few small pieces of pizza ( I know not great but usually I would eat 6) and then had a salad for dinner. So considering it is the weekend that was pretty good for me. This weight loss stuff sucks!

Sometimes I just crave something cold and bubbly, and pop does the trick. Crazy I know, but I am going to do it.
quitting pop was like what i imagine quitting smoking crack must be like!!!!! i used to be addicted to pop too. i cant drink diet pop because i am allergic to phenalalanine. so what i do when i am craving pop (because i too like it for the carbonation) is i switched to drinking sparkling water cut with 1/2 a glass of 100% fruit juice to add flavor. then i weaned myself down to only a splash of juice for flavor. i still get the carbonated drink, but without all the sugar and calories wink.gif

What a great idea. I will have to try that.

I must say that I don't mind drinking water at all, but if I don't have my water jug with me, I don't drink it. When I am at work I drink lots of water, since I take my jug with me, but a lot of the times it stays in the van after work and it goes down hill from there. I did bring it in tonight, so I can start off tomorrow (okay, I guess it is tomorrow now, so today) with a bunch of water!!!

Good morning everyone. I didn't have a great day yesterday because of my FI birthday BBQ. I had a cheeseburger and a piece of chicken and salad. I also couldn't stop muning on the tortilla chips and salsa (it was homemade, LOVE IT), and 2 Absolut & tonics and a glass of wine. I'm a bad girl. Not horrible but I usually do better the first week. I got up early today and went to the gym and swam for 20 minutes but I know I need to do more to work off what I ate yesterday.

The nice thing about the past few days is that it has been warm so I have not been to hungry. I guess I will have to see what happens Wednesday morning.

 

Keep on rocking ladies!

I'm actually getting excited about running tomorrow morning. Over the last week I've had way too much to drink and eat and I feel like I've gained about 5lbs... I'm afraid to get on the scale.

 

I'm going to start keeping track of my calories on Sparkpeople.com. I find it easier to watch what I each when I track everything. I find it surprising to see how many calories I eat in a day, especially when I think that I did well.

As I was out walking today, a guy that was running stopped me. He said to me, Hi, I would like to offer you a great deal on a personal trainer. I see you walking around town often, and I think I can provide you that extra push you might need.

 

Should I be offended? LOL

 

I was like wow do I look that out of shape?

 

He just said, well if you work out with someone than you are pushed more. I said, well I cant really afford a trainer right now, and I actually have a walking partner. We are in training right now. She just is out of town this week.

 

He gave me his number in case Im still interested.

 

lol
