The day after

Thanksgiving... YAY! I worked all day from 8:18am til 6:45pm. Yay me. Yeah, right. Well it was a murderously slow day, to be expected. Everyone was hanging with their families eating turkey.

So, anyway I came home from work and made a turkey breast and mashed potatoes and stuffing and deviled eggs and we finally ate dinner at 10 ish. It was really awesome and now I have turkey for the rest of the week. I really love turkey, I think I should bake one every week.

I have not blogged the last couple of days and I feel really bad about it. Sorry Val! No excuse would be good enough to write. I will just continue to keep my promise and write as much as possible.

Well, that's about all I have to say for now.

Day 1 again

I am posting as i promised I would start doing everyday no matter what. So here goes. It's been pretty good today. I am getting ready to have dinner with my Dad and Eva and Becky and their mangy little dog. It's been a good day so far. We'll see how it ends.

Ugh. That's what I feel like. I did okay on the diet today, I am just really run down. It's the lady time you see. Makes me feel like a pile of doo doo. But, i worked out yesterday and I will work out tomorrow as well.

I liked Val's rules, so I am going to incorporate them into my daily life. I like the one about no TV. It's a killa!!

Off to a rocky start

To start off I have to say that i've been doing pretty good. I haven't been keeping track of calories for the past few days but I've tried to keep an eye on my portions. I have been working out. Actually, yesterday I was so tired all day and I told myself that when I got home I was going to take a nap. But I didn't. I started watching The Biggest Loser from Tuesday night that I had recorded on my DVR and totally forgot about working out. Until they got to the part where they did the last chance work out. I got my butt off the couch and worked out, actually hearing them do the workout motivated me to work even harder at mine. I finished feeling like a noodle and man did I sleep well last night. It was really worth it and I felt accomplished. : )

I've noticed that it is easy for me to get off track when people stress me out. Like my sister. But, I probably use that as an excuse too.

Anyway, she started school this week and Eva asked if I would take her on Thursday and Friday, so I agreed (partially because it involved $20). I go over there to pick her up and I had 1 cup of coffee, 1 little debbie oatmeal pie thing, egg mcmuffin (300 cal), and 2 chocolate chip chewy cookies. So, I got off to a rocky start today, but I can redeem myself.

The Plan:

Turkey Sandwich for lunch: (270)

2 slices of wheat bread (80)
3 slices of Turkey (90)
mustard (0)
100 cal bag of popcorn (100)

Dinner (310)
Lean cuisine...don't know which one yet.

2 snacks at 100 cal each, banana and yogurt.


I suppose that's all I have to say for now, except:

Another thing on my mind is my education. I was on the HCC website and I think my AA will be in Education, then transfer to USF for Psychology. I'm just rolling that around right now. The AA in Education offers a lot of classes that I find interesting.

I am thinking of doing addiction counseling, or school counseling.

Back Again

I'm glad to see they don't delete you for inactivity. Well, I'm back for good this time. This week I lost 5 pounds, so I am pretty much where I left off. I have made at least one decision, from now on it is not called a diet, but rather a plan.

Today's Plan:

Breakfast: (350)

1/2 cup Egg Beaters (80)
2 slices of turkey (60)
2 slices wheat toast (80)
1 Tablespoon butter (light) (50)
1 cup of coffee (30)
1 cup of light and healthy OJ (not simpson, that would be gross) (50)

Lunch: Turkey Sandwich (336)

2 slices of wheat bread (80)
3 slices of Turkey (90)
1 tablespoon light mayo (50)
Tomato slices (16 - got this number from http://www.calorieking.com/ )
1 bag of 100 calorie popcorn (100 - yes, i had to type it, lol!)

Snack: (165)

1 medium banana (105)
Yogurt from walmart (60)

Dinner: (300)

Chicken parm from Lean Cuisine (260)
1 slice of wheat bread (40)

Snack (72)

Apple Medium (72)

1223 calories for the day.

Also, I will be doing some weightlifting on the Bowflex when I get off here, it will only take 15 to 20 minutes. Since it is so nice outside, I will really try to ride my bike. i will really really think about it. I just might do it.

Even though I had a horrible experience last time with Darryl. You see, he left me at a traffic light, so he already crossed the street and i was waiting for it to change. When the light changed, I hopped back on my seat, but not before the waistband of my pants got caught on the seat. So, when I hopped on, I mooned the drivers of the cars behind me. Yep..... good times. Later down the road, same kind of scenario except this time, I fell off the bike and did a "jelly-roll" yeah, that's when a big girl falls off a bike and rolls in the grass. jelly roll. I did it.

But you see, I am still willing to get back on the bike, that's saying something right? Or am I just crazy?!?

Also on the agenda today: drink a shitload of ice water.
