Weigh in

Well sorry Ive been such a slacker at getting here its just so tough with everything going on with school and being a teacher, some weeks are good, some are just horrible to do anything other than school.

I do have good news for the week though....I LOST 1.9 lbs..woo hoo! That brings my total to 39 lbs lost and 23.5 lbs to go to get to my goal weight of 145 so not too much longer just need to get back on that losing track for sure hopefully this is a good start in the right direction! That puts me at 168.5 so well into the 160's! My goal is to be at 159.9 by Christmas which is losing 8.6 lbs in 8 weeks so a little over 1 lb per week.

I will post a new picture when I get to 40 lbs, so close!

Back to tracking food, its a must and I must not stop...only continue!!

Breakfast: oats & chocolate, water
Lunch: sweet & sour chicken, rice, egg roll, soy sauce, water
Dinner: chicken corn dog, peas (onions, seasoning salt), water
Snack: 100 calorie pretzel bar
Exercise: 30 minute walk

I was all settled on eating a salad for lunch and the food usually is just ehh nothing special, nothing great except for one day...well today was it the sweet and sour chicken is amazing I dont know who came up with the recipe but boy is it divine! Other than that (I did eat a small portion at least) I think it was a pretty decent day. I drank well over my goal of 50 oz. of water each day and have made my exercise for the day as well so not a bad start for a week.

Well just when I hit the 160's I get right back into the 170's. I ended up gaining 1 lb so Im at 170.4 lbs from yesterday. We ended up switching internet companies so we had no internet access all week other than at work so thank goodness we got it back today so Im back to civilzation..haha! Ive got to get back in the habit of tracking because it hurt me so badly not writing down a single thing all week. On top of not having internet access Ive been totally redesigning the website for our school as well but its finally just about finished other than tweaking a few things thank goodness!

Welcome to the 160's

Yes, yes I cheated and weighed this morning just to see how well I did this weekend and where I start my week out at. Well surprise, surprise wouldnt you know it but I saw 160's, not just the 160's but 169.1 I couldnt believe my eyes thats a 1.7 loss since now how did that happen! Ive been waiting so long to just touch the 160's even it was at 169.9 and Ive finally accomplished it I cant believe, wow!!

So food for today
Breakfast: oats & chocolate bar, water
Lunch: beef tips with gravy, roll, oatmeal raisin cookie, sweet tea
Dinner: 1/2 PF Changs ginger chicken and brocolli, water
Exercise: 45 minute walk
Water: 50.7 oz.

I usually drink bottled water at lunch and wouldnt you know it they are out so I had the choice of unsweet tea or sweet tea. Most times I can drink unsweet tea if I have splenda + lemon, but without it there is no way. For the beef tips for lunch I didnt care for them very much so I honestly didnt eat much at all.

Weigh in

Well I weighed in this morning with a straight up maintain, not even .1 gain or loss so I must say that Im a bit disappointed I wont be seeing the 160's this week but know that I really havent worked my butt off to get there either. So I maintain at 170.9. Ive been doing a half job of it. Ill drink water, eat good sometimes but splurges were too often. With my mom's birthday that didnt help either as it seemed as though it was either cake, ice cream, or eating out and lots of sodium. So Ill count my blessings that I didnt gain after the crap I ate for some times and say I need to do better.

Not sure what my deal is Ive just been in this funk where I just have no motivation, what is it I need to snap out of it. I dont know if its just so much going on with school (preparing for the 9 weeks exams) or what but Ill be sooo glad when next Thursday is over with and I get a 4 day weekend next week..woo hoo, cant wait!

Week half over!

Well last night I never got back to posting around here since we went out for my mom's birthday and we went out for Mexican which is like serious danger zone. But my food ended up coming out wrong I wasnt too impressed with the way the others looked so I just passed and ate chips and could have been worst, right?

So the new love is blackberry cobbler ice cream that my dad got, its from Blue Bell, if you see it and like blackberry's and cobblers run as far away from it as you can, that stuff is so addicting and so unbelievably good it should be a sin..haha!

So food for today....
Breakfast: Garden Harvest Apple Cinnamon Toasted Chips, water
Lunch: beef burrito, salad (lettuce, cheese, bacon bits, onions, croutons, honey mustard), water
Dinner: boneless wings, carrot cake, blackberry cobbler ice cream, tea with splenda
Water: 50.7 oz.
Exercise: nada

So tonight we are going back over to my parents for cake and ice cream since we didnt get to that last night and my mom is ordering boneless wings (danger, danger) and of course we will be having some of that devine ice cream. My mom asked me the other day if I wanted some I told her no way I would eat it all...haha!

Oh and my new found love for snack/breakfast, etc. is Garden Harvest Apple Cinnamon chips they are delicious and pretty low in fat. For 16 chips its 2.1 pts so not bad at all! They also have other flavors in Tomato Basil (very good as well), banana, vegetable medley (havent tried the last two) so if you havent gotten any they are a good add to your list!

Well Im off to eat the cake and ice cream, my story is keep it small in portions. Ahh that loss is not looking so good this week but well see.
