It's Been 10 Days

  I see that it has been 10 days since I last wrote on my blog... hmmm.. that means I am not doing what I am supposed to be doing.  I said before that I find it boring to just list my calories, fats, carbs, and protein intake.  I have recently been kind of "hit and miss" with my food diary recordings.  My biggest problem seems to be going out to eat.  It is like if I go out and cannot record accurately my meal, then I just forget it!!  This is not good.  And... after the first week when I lost 6 lbs., I hit a roadblock.. I mean a total standstill!!  So what does that mean?  Well, I need to look at my recordings and see where I seem to be failing.  I can say that I am eating too much FAT!  Even though I have kept the carbs low, the fats are in the red each day.  That is what is good about a food diary.  If you are honest in your recordings, then you will see where you are missing the mark.  I have to give myself a higher score on my exercise though.  I am either walking, or doing Chalean Extreme.  My muscles have been very sore from the squats and lunges.  And my shoulders have been sore too.  I really do love to lift weights.  And I really like these videos. But even saying that, I still have a problem getting started.  Sometimes my day is very busy, and then late in the day, I do not want to do it.  I just need to remind myself to keep my eye on that finish line and how I want to finish.  This gal is not giving up!!

Not Being Consistent

Total lbs. lost   -6 (stayed the same)

Okay... remember my posts about me not being consistent??? Well... I still have that problem!  Life just interrupts me on my life choices of what I eat and how I move.  Last week started off with me having a stomach virus- I will spare you the details other than to say that I with the stomach problems I have aches and fever also.  Then this past week I was at a beautiful resort area with great friends and we indulged in food and drink.  I did not go cah-ray-zee... but still did not stay in bounds.  And now I have either allergies or a cold and cough or something!!  Just still not up to feeling great!  But today I am logging my food in my fitness pal, so I will record that tomorrow.  I also just don't feel a need to post each and every day my total calories unless I include something a little more interesting than statistics.  I actually did get in a little exercise while I was gone.. I walked about 2 miles on Saturday.

Grandchildren and Getting Off Track

Weight loss - stayed the same -6 lbs.

  Well, you can see there are posts missing from Friday, Saturday, and Sunday.  My grandchildren (ages 22 months and almost 5 years) came to visit on Friday.  I spent Friday preparing for their visit, and Sunday recuperating.  I realize I am just making excuses for not keeping my journal with my fitness pal these last three days.  I see that I am going to have to be more disciplined when my life is not the normal routine.  So... another thing I learned... jot it down so you can remember it all later.
   I did not get off track too badly while they were here.  I did have a piece of pizza.  But it was one piece.  I added lots of vegetables to a pepperoni pizza- onions, red bell pepper, and chopped black olives.  I had a salad with it, so I did not need more than one piece.  I also resisted the chocolate ice cream that my husband bought for himself... I mean them.  I did, however, skip my water and drank Diet Coke.  So today.. I do not feel good.  My diet has certainly made me feel bad with an upset stomach.  Today I plan to get back on track.  My main thing is that I did not review my PUSH goal or my weekly goals... I was too absorbed with their needs.  It was putting out one fire after another.  Did I mention the 22 month old is a boy???? No sooner did I get something put up then it was something else that was dug out.  And I had to watch him closely because my house is not baby-proofed.  I loved every minute of it though!  My granddaughter is the sweetest little girl.  I am so blessed with these children.
   So today I am going to try to get some exercise in...plan my meals for the week, and stay on track!
