In the end yesterday turned out to be a good day. It really helped to write my blog; I felt much better after. My Mom had called me and got me out of the house. I showered and we went to town. She took me out to eat and it turned into a cheat day but that’s ok; it was Friday anyways (my normal cheat day). I didn’t really cheat that bad though. I had boiled cod, some french fries and some chips with salsa. I didn’t get to work out. Well...I could have but I just chose not to. I went grocery shopping too instead of going today. I am set for a while! I got some more eggs, wheat bread, 0 calorie cooking spray, green peppers, onions, pork loin filets, thin breakfast steaks, boneless skinless chicken breasts, lean pockets, healthy choice soups, mushrooms, saltine crackers, pickles (even though they are really high in sodium I still like to have one as a snack here and there) and last but not least I got a bunch sweet potatoes! I just realized that sweet potatoes are the same thing as yams; lol. I wanted to get some of this oatmeal I have been getting but I could not find it! I hope they get it back. I am happy to finally have some fresh lean foods again though. It’s been a while since I have had one of my veggie stir fries. It’s so nice having options in the kitchen again.
I weighed myself again today and guess what?!!!! I lost 2 more pounds! I am beyond happy about it. No more 265; hello 263! I am now officially 75 pounds down! Yahoo! Now I just need to stop weighing myself until next Saturday. I get like that; where I can’t help but not weigh myself everyday until I see a change. I just have NO patience when it comes to stuff like that; I like to know the day it happens. I know it’s just a number and blah, blah, blah but to me it’s crucial that I stay on top of it otherwise the pressure wont be on me if I’m gaining. I plan to walk to my Moms for my exercise after I post this. No ifs, ands or buts about it.
These past couple of days I have been writing my blog early and I have come to realize that I write more if I do it early instead of waiting until the day is over. For some reason I have more to say instead of just trying to get it over with due to me being tired and ready for bed. I hope I can keep it up but I think I a big part of it is being back into the swing of things. I think I finally have my groove back and I feel as if I’m almost 100% back in the mindset I need to be in. It is so easy for it to spiral out of control. I am glad I got the reigns back. I was extremely close to giving up.
I had my oatmeal for breakfast with a cup of green tea. I just started on my 75oz jug of water and for lunch I plan to have some scrambled eggs with wheat toast. I am not sure what I am going to have for dinner yet.
Until tomorrow :-)
