Not Feeling To Good

Woke up with a scratchy throat, muscle aches, a pounding head and just completely exhausted. At first i thought it was just a bad hangover from last nights drinking. (few drinks with the DH to bring in the new year) but as the day went on my energy wasn't returning and I'm thinking i have a virus of some sorts. So needless to say, no workout today but i did measure and weigh all my food and did very well with that.

Walking Off Cravings

Man...All. Day. Long, i have been fighting cravings. And its nothing in particular, i just want to eat junk. I've been chewing gum, drinking water and sucking on sugar free mints! Doing good so far. Its exhausting really; guess i could clean something (rolls eyes). The refrigerator could really use my magic touch right now.

I was going to get on the treadmill  earlier and walk for at least 30mins but then my DH reminded me that i was suppose to be taking it easy a couple of days a i put my shoes down.  Well...I think I'm going to get on the treadmill anyway; it may help this eating mind-set that i seem to be in. I will update it in My Workouts Page when I'm done, then I will take a shower and have some nice vegetable soup that has been cooking in the crock pot all day..YUM!

Edit To Add - I walked on the treadmill for 45mins @ a 1% incline. YAY FOR ME! I do feel better...still fighting cravings and I still have a dirty refrigerator ;-) mmmm, maybe tomorrow?

Who's Hiring?

Well its has been exactly a week since my lay off and I'm ready to look for another job. I turned in an application at a local grocery store that's within walking difference and as soon as the kids go back to school next week, I can really start looking. I have three temp services in mind and i hear there all hiring. Sigh, im going to miss that weekly was nice to have extra money for a change and im sure my husband appreciated the relief.

Yesterday was day # one of my challenge, i did over all - pretty good. I say pretty good because around 10ish at night i did eat a little something i wasn't suppose too only because i was STARVING. That run came back to haunt me, BIG i will spread out my calories a little bit better. The good news is that I stepped on the scale this morning and was down 4lbs of water weight. I really need to stop with the obsessive weighing everyday. I'm going to try and not weigh again until Sunday morning.

We put the kids in the bed last night and then settled into watching a movie; Taken  with Liam Neeson. If you haven't seen it yet i highly recommend it. Packed with action, suspense and just an over all good thriller. Liam Neeson is  great in it. He really kicks butt,lol.

Time To Pull Up My Prissy Pants!

So, I took a breath then let it out and stepped on the scale this morning. I wasn't surprised at the weight, after all i haven't been miss  "clean and tidy" lately with the eating. I was up, WAYYY up from last weeks weigh in. For the past week i have been eating what i wanted - when i wanted. (Oh and for the record it IS time of month for me, so i was expecting to be up - heehee)

For the past few days i have been psyching myself out about getting back on track with my calorie counting. I'm sick of being bloated with no energy. I'm sick of seeing my muffin top getting bigger and my jeans fitting snug. So........I trotted on over to and joined in on a Valentines Day challenge  (in the calorie counting section). Anyone can join if your interested...its starts today and runs through Valentines day. i was saying, i joined the challenge today. My plan is to eat 1500 calories a day, do my workouts and drink my water. In the past i have allowed a day of freedom on Sunday...but not anymore. Im too close to goal for that, so i will just increase my calories to about 1800-2000 on that day. My workouts can get pretty intense so i like to fuel my body (can burn on average 300 -700 calories a workout; according to my heart rate monitor) . And from my past experiences with calorie counting i have discovered that my maintenance is around 2000 - 2100; so that's where i get the 1500 from (500 deficit to lose on average a lb a week) In the end its all about calories in vs. calories out and listening to my body.

My goal for this challenge is to lose about 6-8lbs. That will put me close to 160...but first i have flush out this stinkin' water weight that is lurking, the scale is up about 8lbs right now from my lowest!  I hope all of that is water because its not uncommon for me to hold onto that much water; especially after the way i have been eating. (.keep your fingers crossed that its water,LMAO!)

anyways, off to get some cardio in on the treadmill.
Later Gators...

August check-in

Morning, Are you having a good day? I hope you can say 'yes I am' cause I'm always having a good day when I'm not at work....
