SP Premium



Monday, June 03, 2013

Well, I'm still here even though I haven't been on SP for sometime now. Between chasing a 3 yr old, being a single mom and dealing with other issues in my life....needless to say I put myself aside.

I still have not lost any weight. I have been tracking my food on FitnessPal right now and though I thought I was doing better, that caloric intake is still too high. I have had some really down moments (just recently last night) when I didn't care and just ate what I wanted. I think...no I known I have a food issue and it is all emotionally connected.

So today, I start AGAIN!!!! I got up this morn and walked for 45 minutes in the heavy humidity! If you are from Florida you know what I'm talking about - you walk out the door and can "breathe in" and wear the moisture in the air along with the heat! I want to make a goal this week to just walk every morning even though I'm sweating unbelievably. (My daughter goes with me in the stroller and I give her a hand held fan to keep her cool.)

So far today I have eaten 760 calories (I think my breakfast was a little too much - 400 cals). I just need to be more conscience of the amount of calories I take in. It sounds so easy...burn more calories than you take in....but why is it so hard to do?

So I'm into my "weak" hours right now. I have a meeting at 4 so I plan to eat some oatmeal before hand so I won't be so hungry when I pick up my daughter.

I hope everyone has a good week and I hope to post another blog with some good results!!!

Take care

    Great to have you back. Take it one day at a time. I sure know what you mean about the heat. I did a 3.6 miles run this morning at 6am and I came in dripping with sweat.
    I know it mist be hard being a single parent. My daughter is in the same boat. Single mom with a 3 year old busy girl. I do what I can to help her out.
