- week


Big sigh of relief!  I noticed this week that I was starting to slip into bad habits again due to my schedule.  No time to make a lunch so I would grab a snack bag of chips from the snack bar, no time for breakfast, I'm not hungry so lets just skip, Off to the ball field so no time for dinner, I can just grab a nacho to share with the kids.   This is the thing that has been going on the past two weeks.  It is not as bad as I have written it but I can see that it could become that bad so I am stopping it now.  My motto is that life happens and cheats happen but when you notice them winning it is time to reevaluate your eating.   I have no idea how I lost 5 lbs this past week but I will take it.   My body does this though.  I will go a few weeks without any lose and then lose 3-5 pounds in a week so I guess it is just par for the course.   I am very close to 70lbs lost but I know that it could still be a few weeks before I see that but it is still nice.  Here is to a new week and a new number on the scale!

Week in evaluation:
Water: still doing pretty well on this and still running to the bathroom every hour.  At least if gets me away from my desk

Exercises: not much.  Just running around ball fields and shopping at this point but the last game was this week so I will be back on track with 3-4 workouts a week starting tonight.

Food- Sigh!  We have already addressed that issue and I am now moving on. 

Mental:  I am actually doing great mentally now that baseball is over.  I now have a few nights that I didn't have before that I can relax and take care of things.  It was pretty rough for the past month and I am looking forward to some me time.  I am having to work on eating slower since I still eat pretty fast and I know that it is just a habit/mental thing.  Stupid old habits!

I hope that everyone is enjoying summer.  Here in the south it has been in the 100 since the end may and I am not loving it!

- week


Not as big of a loss as I wanted but I will take every oz that I get.  I am still busy, busy and busy so I am actually a bit surprised at the loss.  My UTI came back as well as TOM so you can imagine the week I have had.  It wasn't too bad but had this been 7 months ago this girl would have curled up under a rock somewhere with a year supply of chocolate and not come back out until I needed more.   I am still thankful for the blessings of the blog world, OCC and hard work for blessing me with the knowledge and strength to not use food as a comforter any longer.    Here is my evaluation.

Water:  With the UTI I believe I have met and exceeded the quota.

Exercises:  Still not doing to great on this one due to time.  Baseball ends next weekend so I am hoping to get back on track.  Maybe my house will even be cleaned!

Food:  Still pretty tight and the TOM and infection does not help.  I will say this, I am getting better at eating slow and chewing the mess out of everything.

Mental:  Still a bit stressed out but dealing with it pretty well.  It helps that I had some new NSVs this week.  I ordered some clothes from Old Navy online and I got them but they were a little too big. Still wearable but a bit big.   I was shocked because I bought them thinking they would be small and I could shrink into them.  That was a nice nsv.  Another NSV is that I found that I can ration out chocolate.  My husband bought me a small bag of lindt truffles in april (like 10 truffles) and I ate the last one last night.  I enjoy them much better when I only eat one or two once in a while and not a whole bag in one hour.  You can savor the texture and feel of it but I think I will save the rest of this thought for another post.  

Happy losses to us all!
