Motivation, My Health, On Plan

Bad decisions apparently!

So, yesterday, I don’t know what happened but I ate a lot of bad food lol. It was so good but so unnecessary. I’m hoping for a better day today!

It won’t be as hot today so I plan to walk for 30 mins on my lunch and I plan to eat really good. Though I will have to go get something for lunch so I’m planning ahead and probably just going to buy myself a healthy choice and some fruit.

I need to stay focused. I can’t go to weight watchers AGAIN this weekend. I really need to go and sit and listen and get motivated again. I also need to remember why I’m losing weight. It’s not so I can look good (though that is an added bonus) but it’s so I can be HEALTHY!

I have high blood pressure (which may be the result of narrow arteries)

I have slightly higher than normal bad cholesterol and slightly low good cholesterol.

I need to lose weight to reduce my risk for heart disease. I need to remind myself of these things every day.

I will walk today. On my lunch and this evening and I will eat healthy foods. I know part of it is that we’re broke until my fiancee starts his job and we have little to no money to buy decent groceries. It’s very frustrating.

Exercise, Motivation

Busy weeks.

It’s been a couple weeks since I’ve weighed myself again with all the chaos we have going on right now.

I’m going to try my best to remember to weigh myself tomorrow morning. I also want to try and wake up at a better time than I have been lately. I’m sorry for the lack of posts lately.

Eating good has been kind of difficult lately. We’re broke at the moment with all the stuff we have going on and so therefore I’m not always eating the best stuff possible for me.

I walked a lot this weekend and danced a lot at the concerts we went to so that’s good. I walked for 30 mins last night and then quit because I was so friggin tired. My allergies are terrible right now. So much for only having fall allergies.

I plan to exercise every night this week though and we’ll see what I weigh tomorrow morning.

I believe we’re having pork chops, couscous and veggies for dinner. I’m determined to watch my portion size tonight. Wish me luck.

On Plan, weight watchers

It’s a new day….right?

I just need to keep reminding myself that it’s a new day and that just because I had a bad/good weekend. (Bad for food, but ultimately I felt awesome.)

I did have a great week last week and lost 3 lbs! That was awesome, but I was in such a good mood this weekend that I didn’t plan ahead for my food and I ate pretty bad.

I did go to the grocery store last night and come out with a very nice and healthy haul. Lots of frozen veggies, fruit, multi grain cheerios, yogurt, ww string cheese and more. We did really good. I made myself a good lunch for today and tomorrow. Though next time I need to make a little less rice. But still 9 points for a lot of awesome steamed broccoli, carrots, pea pods, about 1 cup of rice and some orange sauce. It was very tasty!

This weekend was fun though. I met up with my good friend Joey for some lunch at Olive Garden. I had all my daily and weekly points so I wasn’t worried. After lunch she and I made a trip over to David’s Bridal and I tried on some wedding dresses and I think I found one I reallly like. It looks awesome on me and is very beachy!

I would like to go back this weekend and try it on again and spend a little more time in it. I was very in and out this weekend and I need to spend a little more time in it and make sure it’s comfortable and I really like it. I’m going to make sure my hair is curled real nice and wear the flower I plan to wear in my hair and put some make up on and try to get the full effect!

I can’t wait!

Anyways, we’re having pork roast for dinner and I’m not sure what else. I should find out though.

And I did walk for 35 minutes on my lunch break. It’s a new day, every day. No need to give up the rest of the week right? RIGHT!

On Plan

They should give us nap time in the real world…

I’m exhausted and need a nap, I needed a nap like 3 hours ago too. I’m hoping once I get home and relax a little I’ll wake up enough to exercise because I really need to tonight.

I took off Saturday and Sunday so I really need to work out this evening. Especially since I ate terribly this weekend. I know what I did wrong, I tracked it and used a good chunk of my extra points for the week.

I am going to the grocery store tonight for some fruit, cereal (Uhm, hello peanut butter multi grain Cheerios where have you been all my life!), and some healthy snack and lunch options for the week.

In case you didn’t know this new Cheerios cereal is amazing. Sweet enough to feel like I’m having a treat but only 110 calories per cup. So good.

I’ve created a facebook page to go along with my awesome blog. I’m getting a lot of feedback from people who really like the name. I love it too. haha.

Anyways, I know part of the reason I’m feeling so tired is because I’ve eaten like hell and I didn’t exercise yesterday. Taking a day off is ok, but two days is apparently bad news. Send me good vibes this evening.

mmk? Thanks.

I think we’re going to end up with tuna sandwiches for dinner and I’m ok with that. I need something simple and some fruit will help me.

Have a great evening everyone.

On Plan, weight watchers

Gained a little, time to track again!

Well I went to weight watchers yesterday. The line was very line again but I did get to sit for maybe 10 minutes of my meeting. It was also a shortened meeting due to the grand opening of our new location. I didn’t stick around for that because I had to head on over to get my blood taken for my Doctor’s visit this Friday. *crossing my fingers my blood work improves*

I have been walking and exercising more and have lost 5 pounds since my last visit. I wish it was more but I hope she’ll be pleased with my progress.

I’m also hoping my blood pressure will be down. For those who don’t know I get all nervous and worked up before they take my blood pressure and we often have a hard time getting an accurate reading. They usually take it after the meeting with my Doctor and it goes down a little, so we’ll see how that goes.

I just finished tracking my food I ate yesterday and this morning. I didn’t do so good, but I tracked it all. So that’s a victory in my book. I have some good and pretty healthy dinners planned for the week. I need to pick up a few things to ensure I have decent lunches and snacks for the week.

I need to exercise this evening and I also get to see my niece, Joy. So I’m going to take my new camera over there and try to get some super cute shots of the peanut. 🙂

I hope everyone has a good week and stays focused. Everyday is a new day to start over. Just because one day was bad doesn’t mean you should throw in the towel for the whole week.

A gain isn’t the end of the world and you can work hard to get it back off, that’s my plan for the week.
