Another day...

Another day of IF and I'm not feeling as good today as I was yesterday.  I'm a bit disappointed in myself... I gave in to temptation last night and had some chocolate chip cookies and milk.  I know this isn't terrible.. but it was 10:30 at night.  I know I didn't need to eat that late and I know I didn't need the extra calories.  So, I just feel like I failed myself.  :/  I know to just get right back on the horse and get on with it, so that is what I am going to do.  I have no excuses -- I just shouldn't have eaten it. 

Another thing is I didn't even work out yesterday!  But I DID do some massive work... a back section of our yard is wooded and well... I worked out there until I was so dirty, sweaty, and smelly it wasn't even funny.  Even my son was like EW.  HA!  But it felt good to work and get it done.  I was a mean brush whacking machine!  lol  AND, that huge branch from that big storm?  Yeah, we worked and got that down!  So now we don't have to pay for that.  We may still get that tree removed, but we don't have to pay for the other work.  WOOT!

My weight this AM is 188.5 and I am feeling a bit sore.  While I'm not happy with the number or with eating past 9 last night, I'm still going to trudge on.  I think today I will focus on eating closer to 1 ( I got busy yesterday and really think I waited almost too long to eat), make sure not to eat too late, and just keep doing what I'm doing.  Part of my weight being up may be from all that yard work.  It was in the high 80's, so I'm sure I might be a smidge dehydrated.  I drank water every chance I got, but I was drenched in sweat and working my tushy off.  Not to be too direct, but I think I peed one time yesterday evening!  :O  And that isn't like me at all.  So, lots of liquids today.  I would work out, but I am so sore and I really should be out helping the hubby right now instead of sitting here doing this.  But I refuse to change my routine.  If anything, now is when I should be sticking to it more than ever.  For a long time, I've let too many things interrupt that.  And vacation is only a few weeks away so I want to be able to maybe take a break that week, but it be so ingrained that I WANT to do it. 

Ok, well, I think I've spilled my guts enough.  I'm not sure what else to talk about... I really should get outside now!  LOL  Or at least get to doing things in here, ya know?  Ok.  I'm outtie!


  1. That late night snacking will get ya sometimes - hate that feeling, don't you? P.S. I know what you meant in your comment to me, and I did not take it the wrong way, I promise! I think I'm just overly frustrated - some would say I'm prematurely frustrated about it. But we'll see how it goes as I lose more weight. Eh. Have a great day!

    1. I'm glad you knew what I meant! I just didn't want you to give up on it while you're still changing. Our bodies are so weird! And yes, I let the snack monster get me! But I've been doing better. I've been trying to have my 'sweet' fix in the afternoon at snack time so that I don't give in to temptation later. I think I'm going to have to find another thing to do with my mouth at that time like hot tea. I use to drink it a lot, but during the Summer months, not so much. But since we are about to hit Fall and the nights are getting just a smidge cooler, I am thinking I can go back to my herbal and flavored teas to give me that fix for something at night. :)

  2. Vacations should be more inspiring! I keep trying to use vaca as motivation, but it hasn't been working for me. But it sounds like you're doing wonderfully! Even though you broke for those cookies, you're determined to stick with it, and that's what's important!
