Day 496/ Day 23 of 100

Friday, May 20, 2016

emoticon I got only two hours of sleep yesterday night, so I was dragging all day. Managed to still get to Goodwill to go shopping for Summer clothes, but only ended up with like 2 outfits, nothing else matches. AND I didn't get my mile in. I was so tired I could not walk, I even went to bed early, having DH take over the kids bed time because I couldn't keep my eyes open.

emoticon But today is a new day. I can't let missing one day throw me off my track. We are going to Walmart today to finish up the outfits we have. I've got pictures of all of the pieces that we have that don't have matches and we are going to do that. They need about 5 outfits for camp and by golly we are going to get them! And it's time to get sleeping bags and toiletries and snacks for the trip to camp. I'm nervous, I'll have both kids at camp and I have no idea what to do with myself. DH has to work, but I can probably convince him to take one day off. Maybe. It's in less than two weeks. Yikes!

emoticon The scale may not be moving because of my mistakes, but I think it is turning into muscles or at least moving from my waist. DH has commented several times at how I'm looking like I'm losing weight. I don't see it when I look in the mirror, but I don't look at me as often as he does emoticon

emoticon This nutrition thing is harder than I thought it would be. It doesn't help that I'm really emotional right now and I usually eat when I am like this. It doesn't help that we've had sweets in the house for the last few days. But I was proud of myself. We went to steak and shake and I did not get a shake. I got a very greasy burger that I could not eat all of. I'm not used to all that grease any more. Bleh. I need more veggies and am going to pick some up today while we are at Walmart. I have my green beans, squash and broccoli, which are all almost gone. This weekend I shall have to cook more of them than I did last week. I need some variety too. Though honestly, knowing what I was going to have and setting my tastebuds towards that really helped. I need extra of the veggies because that is my go to for when I'm getting to feeling like emotional eating. Carrots and hummus help too. I have a lot of carrots to eat. I didn't eat as much this week as I thought I would. I'm going to come up with a meal plan that will include the weekend this week. No eating out. None. And if I have no choice I will get the side veggies and a salad.

emoticon I'm hoping this week I can stick to my meal plan. I like what I'm cooking. I love all of the things I made for this week. I'm having a rough time with the avocado, I keep finding bad spots and discovered that if there is even a hint of a bad spot you don't eat it. Yuck. I'm not going to do green juice this week, I'm going to try to eat all of my veggies. The only thing I don't know how to incorporate into my meal plan is the kale. I wish I could make kale salad like the store does, yum. They don't have that salad any more, now they have one with blue cheese crumbles in it. Bleh. I think my meal plan is pretty much going to stay the same, I'm going to add some veggies and eat more of my sweet potatoes, I kept forgetting about them, or not eating them because I ate rice and I'm only supposed to have one starch. I should have eaten more of them to tame my sweet tooth. I have them with salt, no butter, and if you haven't been having sweets it tastes very sweet and satisfying.

    You got this. After some rest, you will get the miles in. I'll bet the walking is slimming you down and so hubby sees it even if the scale does not agree. How do your clothes feel? How do you generally feel with the walking? Focus on those nonscale cues instead of the stubborn numbers on the scale.

    The lack of sleep doesn't help at all. But, you have a plan and it is very do able. Hang in there. It will come together for you soon I hope and pray. emoticon

    You are developing a good plan! The sleep issue will stall your day for sure. I have had the same problem, so I started a streak : Bed by ten and up by 8. so far I have almost 30 days on the streak and I do have more energy. I know you are an early riser! So whatever works for you- just try to get 8 hours. Do you have sleep apnea?

    Great job on getting more veggie! I started buying the Wholly Guacamole because avocados turn so rapidly. I don't know if they have it in your area, but they are very nice and come in 100 cal portions.

    Keep going you are definitely on the right path!
