Bad Week

I’ve been incredibly naughty this past week. Lol.

Landon turned 4 last Tuesday…holy crap I feel old.

So since then it’s just been bad choice after bad choice.

I KNOW I haven’t been eating well…. but I’ve been having the strangest cravings. No bake cookies, Reese cups, sugar cookies, pb cookie dough…. name it and I want it.

Which usually isn’t a problem…if I want it…then I eat it. I refuse to deny myself food… I usually just have enough control to not eat a whole helluva lot of it. Which I failed this week.

So the scale reads 195. Not too sure how accurate that is since it is TTotM, so I know I’m bloating. Honestly, though. I have a feeling it’s gonna be another 193 weigh in day. Darn. Btw, sry guys out there for the girl talk

No one to blame but me, honestly.

Doesn’t help we have 3 kids in the house right now. It’s hard enough to get out to jog with one kid. I have a newfound respect for people who try to lose weight with 3 kids full time.

It’s so hard because Josh and I want to do the jogging together…so there is no way to do that together….can’t leave them in the house alone…and taking them with is a big NO GO.

Though we did get some punching mitts and gloves at a garage sale… we can do that.

I’m not too sure where my motivation went to. I went from losing a good 6 pounds in 2 weeks in December…. to bouncing around from 194-190 repeatedly.

So yeah, a little discouraged to say the least…. but it’s happened before…a million times actually.

At least I’m not gaining 10 pounds, you know? I don’t doubt that I’ve gained some weight…2 or 3 pounds…. but I can lose those.

So… I feel like I’m starting from square one. Lol.

In a sense I am.
So. I’m setting a goal. I’m determined to weigh 188 by April 25. 6 pounds in 4 weeks.

I’m determined.

Yup. Lol.

That’s all.

P.S. Although, I am thinking about doing some Youtube videos. Linking them here… It’s been something that I’ve gotten a couple of messages about…. could be fun…..right?

EBAY

I found a pair of Jogging shoes that I adored at Dunhams. Neon Blue with Neon Pink swishes! They look like ^that… just brighter. I’ll upload a picture soon with my feet!!!!

Unfortunately they were $95.00….. No way that I am going to spend that much money. HAHAHA.

So I went to Ebay and was fishing around for shoes, and lo’ and behold I found them. Same kind….my size…. must have been fate.

So I snagged them up! I spent…. $17.32 on them!!!! WOOOT!

We also bought Josh a pair of Nikes… his are white with blue swishes…. got his for about $16.5

So we picked up two pairs of Nikes for $33.87

I am in LOVE with Ebay. So we got $150 worth of shoes for CHEAP AS HELL!!!

I’m all excited. They are specifically for jogging.

I really really really reccommend getting a pair of shoes like these. A good portion of them are actually mesh, so your toesies can breath…. I love that, then my feet won’t get sweaty. Lol.

So yeah, I’ve got my regular shoes, gym shoes, and jogging shoes

I’m a happy camper.

Doing pretty darned good

I know it’s only Saturday but I’ve been friggen awesome since Wednesday…don’t get me wrong, I’ve been doing awesome before then… But this past week I’ve just felt great.

For example… I worked, went to the gym, walked, and jogged…. so with I treated myself with McDonalds…. A BIG MAC!!!! With fries…. yummmmmm….. Even after all that crap, and Breakfast… I still would have had a deficient of OVER 1500…. I usually only try to shoot for 1000.

My stomach hurt from the fast food. I had a headache. But it was so friggen good. Lol.

Sometimes cravings make no sense. But oh well. After dinner I still had a definicent of 1150. So I KNOW I ate well past my calorie limits, but why not? Especially if I didn’t want that 1500 deficient.

But other than that… lol. I’ve been eating really well. I’ve been walking/jogging….doing home exercises…. and just in general I’ve been doing really good.

So I really want to see that magical 189 number… only ONE pound. Though, Ironically…. TTotM should be here on my next weigh in day.

Haha…. so my scale will probably read 193+ at least. Which sucks since I’m so darned close to the 180s…. and I’m not going to be able to see it this weigh in. Lol.

But oh well….. at least if the scale reads 194, I’ll know I’m about 189…. since I bloat about 5 pounds, lmao.

Grrrr…. go figure.

But I just hadn’t been on here in a while and I wanted to go ahead and be all giddy and happy for a moment.

Happy St. Patties day!!!!!

Joggin Clothes

Today was the day that I was *supposed* to start my training for my 5K. It’s been downpouring…. (go figure, nice and clear weather until the day that I decide I want to be outside)….. It’s starting to clear up, so I’m hoping to go out later today, once it clears up a little more. I’m thinking that my first time jogging wouldn’t be a good experience if it’s down pouring.

Sooooo. I was thinking… it’s spring, so it’s probably going to be damp most the time…. I can’t really jog in shorts (burrrr) and I’m not going to jog in jeans…. so enter jogging clothes.

So I went to Dunhams and picked up some jogging clothes. Just a pair of stretchy jogging pants (which, btw make my butt look amazing, gotta love control panels)….and a jacket…. which I’m already in love with.

It’s ADIDAS, black with a white zipper…. cool, right? But it gets better…. the back is mesh! I guess it’s to help you stay dry? Or cool? Or something?

But I’m sitting here wearing them right now…. just ripped off a pore strip…. waiting about 30 minutes until I’m certain the rain has stopped….and head on out!!!!!

I’m all excited. So, come 8:00, I’ll be back from my 1st day of the training program…and I’ll let you know how it goes.

Hopefully awesome!!!!

Ahhhh Stress

Ahhhh, stress…interesting. My last weigh in I was at 196. So I weighed myself later that day….194….

I decided that I wanted to monitor my weight this week, just to see if it was just bloating (we can hope…right????)

Well, I’ve come to the conclusion that it had to have been stress. Lets face it…midterm week, rather stressful.

Well, had my last midterm on Friday…. and guess what… jumped on the scale today 192.

So yeah, I’m concluding it was just stress. It’s all I can think of it being. Stress.

I have been doing really good this past week…. well except for nachos one night….lol….and perhaps ice cream for desert….lmao!

Cheat day!!!! Lol.

So I’m hoping that this 192 is good to go…. it might, who knows… lol.

If, by chance this 192 is good to go, lol, then I should be hitting the 18- numbers soon enough!!! YAY!!!!

Wish me luck…. without stress!!!! Lol…… well maybe.
