So far February hasn't been a total loss lol. M is gone away for his first year of school and will be gone another four looooooonggggg weeks. I have been eating a lot better and less thanks to having made a meal plan for the first of Feb until March 8th. I wouldn't have stuck to it if I had had anything extra at home.... making sure I had almost everything for five weeks was hard, but worth it. (Plus, you won't believe how little I spent to have everything I needed... $43.75... 5 meals/day for 35 days makes that 25 CENTS/meal!! I drink all my fruit in smoothies so I sliced everything and froze it all in convenient little smoothie packs. Some nights I have wild line caught salmon and organic green beans, some nights I have chicken breast with mixed home frozen veggies and salad, I shopped smart and had to freeze a lot of things but I had no choice if I wanted to eat for five weeks...I don't drive, nor do I have a red cent to my name lol.). Anyway... I was hungry for the first few days but that has stopped and I have become a lot more leveled out in the mood department. (Less junk, more pure foods = food for fuel, not for fun!) I have been trying to keep busy on the treadmill but we have had constant power surges since the big storm knocked everything out last week so I will be running then the treadmill just slows down to almost nothing. When I'm almost stopped it will shoot back to the full speed I had been running at and then I'm jolted either off the treadmill or I have to start running like mad to catch myself. Its quite a sight. Sooo... giving up on the treadmill for a while I guess. I'm going to make up for it though.... exercise bike, walk away the pounds dvds... lots of stretching and interval training. I hope. Having moved and having not had the internet hooked up means a lot less motivation from all of you guys. I never get on spark and I hate that I can't more often but am doing the best I can.
Current weight: 342.4 this morning which is up a bit from last week but I knew that was coming. I've been spending too much time sitting on my butt thinking about fitness rather than living it lol. I'm going to have to find a text buddy with similar goals who is ready to change for good because that's exactly what I need... someone to pick at me and bug me if I don't do what I commit myself to daily. (First of all, i already have some amazing spark friends who i love dearly... one whom i text daily and love, when you read this dont think im looking for someone to replace you...that will never everrrrrrr happen!!!! And yes, i should find this motivational nag in myself, yes dears, I know, but I just can't.)
Anyway, just under ten pounds left until my goal of losing 20lbs while M is away. (334.0 was my goal). Who knows if I'll hit it or not, but it's something to strive for, for sure!! I am going to start today by getting as much more of my house cleaned as possible and then a small workout. I have a heck of a headache today (I confess not enough water, in fact none today yet, I'm on it though... just grabbed a 24+ oz glass and downed half) so I'm not going to do anything too crazy. Maybe I'll start posting for workout ideas on facebook. I'm not really one to post on my own facebook ANYTHING fitness or weight related, but maybe I'll start. Maybe it will be like a public motivational thing. Probably just another source of anxiety though haha. I'll stick to my beloved spark page for now I think.
Anyway. This blog turned out to be a lot of rambling, sorry for anyone who might've actually hoped for something decent.
Love you all!!!
