Update 6/4/12

Current weight: 213.

Ug. Having a hard time getting to "one"derland.It is really hard to get out and walk or jog when it is so hot! I've also been dealing with a relapse of the sugar addiction.

Ok. One week at a time. This week we are driving to Las Vegas on Wednesday and driving home on Sunday. Traveling and vacation! Scary!

Plan: Take workout clothes. Use the hotel treadmill 30 minutes each day. Absolutely NO sugar! Water only. Photo log my food! I'm actually looking forward to this part, seems like it may be fun.

Goal: lose 5 pounds, but would be happy with a 3 pound loss.

Health Log 4/22 through 4/25

Sunday morning I was SOOO excited! I actually cheered (audibly)! I made PB cookies Sunday afternoon and had too many! I only baked 2 dozen and froze the rest of the dough, but I think I ate most of them! UG. At least they are small (one and 1/2 inches round), right? Other than that my diet has been great!

Monday, I went on a 6.5 mile bike ride with my hubby! So fun. We were out for 38 minutes, so I only got 5 points in my 8 week challenge instead of 7 points for 45 minutes, but oh well. On Tuesday, Melanie and I walked 3.5 miles. It is so much better walking WITH somebody than alone! Wednesday I was super sore, so I took the night off.

I feel pretty good. I haven't been sleeping well, so I've been tired during the day. I haven't been dizzy this week though. That's good.

I am worried about doing my part this week. I'm working hard and keeping my diet on track. Crystal and I are going for a combined weight loss of 6 pounds this week. Fingers crossed. Hope those PB cookies and the dinner out last week don't sabotage me this week...

Goal: Accomplished!

I did it! I actually cheered this morning on the scale. I thought I was going to loose weight, but not hit my goal for the week. Why? Because yesterday, I just had a day out with Cameron (including food: burrito bowl, shared cookie and brownie, etc.) But, I actually hit my goal this week! It felt awesome!

Health Log 4/18

Food Log:
B: PB, Banana, Spinach, Chocolate Protein Shake
S: Strawberries and Cheese Sticks
L: Beans & Rice, Peas
D: Grilled Cheese
S: 5 Rice Dream Frozen Treat Bites
>32 oz. water

Exercise Log: I didn't exercise today because I was having sharp pains in my back. I would have walked if I had a treadmill so I could stop right when needed. I could risk walking outside and getting stuck a mile away from home. It isn't worth it. So, no worries.

Notes: Dinner was supposed to be Grilled Cheese and Tomato Basil Soup. I made the soup, and it was delicious, but incredibly HOT! I didn't have time to eat it before I had to leave to be at my school for an event. :( Boo! Anyway, I felt pretty good today minus the pains in my back.

Health Log 4/17

Tues. 4/17: Happy birthday to my niece!

Food log:
B: Strawberries, Vanilla Protein Shake
S: Banana & PB
L: 1 C. refried beans & some cheese
D: Cesar Salad & Thin Crust Pizza
> 64 oz. water

Exercise Log: Walked 3 miles in about an hour. Not really sure how long it took because I got a phone call 7 minutes before I finished that continued long after I got home so I wasn't paying attention. I was happy for the phone call.

Notes: I felt pretty tired today. Maybe because I didn't sleep well last night. Dinner was planned to be chicken, rice, and peas. Cameron had a work dinner he had to attend and wanted me to go along. Dinner was at Yard House restaurant and I tried to keep my portions in control since I couldn't really control the food. I also had water, not soda or lemonade. Overall, I'd say a pretty good day.
