Back to the Basics

Lunch (6.8): spinach, chicken and cheese ravioli (4.4), marinara (1.4), banana (1), water (0)

Total: 26.8
Total supposed to eat: 26

So not too bad of a first day back at tracking food. I have gotten a little notebook and anything I eat I must write down. I saw this on the today show yesterday and thought hey that could work. It made me not want to eat some things because I have to write it in the little log, silly but hey it worked today

We started finally the couch to 5k this week and it made me realize just how out of shape I am when I think that I was in shape. We did the first part of it -60 sec run, 90 sec walk with a 5 minute warmup and after the 2nd 60 sec run I almost didnt make it so I think we may improvise this week and start out a little slower and do either 30 or 45 sec run, 90 sec walk.

About that time it looked like it was about to start pouring down so we went home and plan to do either the 30 or 45 sec start instead of the 60 sec this week and then maybe by next week well be ready for the 60 sec. I dont think I realized how tough it was going to be. No Running/walking tonight I took the night off to study for a final exam I have tomorrow.

Day Two...

Food for yesterday was umm not so good...I ate one meal because we didnt have time to eat lunch or I would have so we ate a early dinner at 4:30

Snack: 3-4 handfuls of cheddar chex mix, water (16.9 oz)
Dinner: 1/3 lb hamburger (pepperjack cheese, lettuce, ketchup, onion, pickles), 10-12 fries with honey mustard, 2 glasses of sweet tea
Exercise: 45 minute walk, 30 minute walk (around MSU)

Yep that was it not a good day but Ill survive I guess and move on. I paid for only eating one meal for sure my stomach was hurting unbelievable I wont ever make that mistake again.

Tonight we are planning on starting the couch to 5k program. We were going to start last night and after getting back late I just said lets go on a walk and well start tonight The old me would have said screw it its already Wednesday just wait till Monday but Im trying to slowly work my mind back to the good instead of the bad training of thinking.

Oh and we went to San Antonio for vacation I had a conference to go to and we just made a little trip out of it as well.

Anyone still out there?!

Wow its been what almost 3 weeks now since Ive posted and I doubt anyone is still reading this thing since its been so long. I have fallen off the wagon big time for sure!

A little background and where I have been was on vacation last week (didnt eat well), week before I took the Praxis I and studied my butt off (passed two of the ones I know and get the last part back in about 1-2 weeks), then the week before I took the Praxis II (will get my scores Friday!) and then Ive had class as well so its been a busy busy time. Oh then on top of that I got a new job teaching high school but at a public school instead of private school and Im pretty excited about it, its a HUGE raise so that will be nice as well!

Hubby and I are going to start the Couch to 5k program has anyone else done this? If you arent familiar with it here is the link to it...Couch to 5k program

Food for today was eghh ok but I know I have to get back to posting it all and it will help me to get back in the feel of things so here goes..

Breakfast: 2 cups of fruit (grapes, watermelon, cantelope)
Lunch: Dairy Queen kids meal (cheeseburger-plain, apple sauce, kids sprite)
Dinner: 1 piece of chicken fajita pizza, 1 piece of cheese pizza, 2 breadsticks with marinara, salad (lettuce, bacon bits, brocolli, cucumbers, ranch-NO CHEESE!), 1 glass of sweet tea
Snack: 1 grape popsicle

After typing this all out I just realized Ive had no water and no exercise either gotta get better but its a start Im embarressed to even say how bad Ive been eating this is actually much better. I probably had been eating close to 2500-3000 calories a day.bad, bad but thats why Im geting back in the groove.

Oh and today I weighed in after vacation and not eating all that grand and have gotten myself up to 173.3 and I was down to 163.2 at one point pitiful for sure.

Tomorrow I will be gone all day but hopefully I can eat healthy and get back to it. Working out will be tough but depending on when I get back tomorrow I will have some time to work out. If not Wednesday it will be to start my workouts.
