Calm and done

Ok, so, I sorta blew up yesterday when I was trying to finish updating one blog post draft and started on another.  It for some reason deleted my post and no matter what I did, it was just GONE.  I was so mad I just said screw it and deleted it all!  I can't believe I did that. *sigh*  My temper got the best of me for sure.  :/

Anyways, yesterday was an okay day food wise and I sorta took it easy.  Today was a good day.  I got in a lot of housework, a good bike ride, and food wasn't awful, but not great.  I just couldn't do it today.  I know it wasn't horrid, but still.  I wanted it, so I had it.  Meh.  Not what was important today for me -- today I got to spend some great time with my niece and nephews (my side)!  They live so far away and we don't get to see them much, so I really just spent my time with them.  Tomorrow is a b-day party for my other niece (other side) so it will be another busy day.  I'm really looking forward to it -- mostly because for years we haven't been allowed to be involved in their lives, so it's pretty amazing to be able to now.  :)

Because I know I'm going to want to eat cake, I probably won't track my food tomorrow.  And I'm cool with that.  Maybe I'm done tracking.  I don't know... I sorta like it.  But I will be honest and say it bugs me when there are things I can't track.  Snacks and things at Costco are pretty easy -- they display all of the packaging and will gladly tell you what the sample size is.  But something like a birthday party is tougher.  We will see.  I guess what matters is doing as well as I can on tracking what I can and following my gut (literally) on the other things.  I've been doing this long enough that I know what things are healthy.  I guess that's why this really isn't a diet but a lifestyle change with the benefit of weight loss.  So, when I can't track, I have to eat the healthiest I can, eat small portions, and not stress.  Stress is my killer and why for the last few days, I've wanted wine.  I have had a couple of glasses, but nothing overkill.  Go me!  LMAO

Speaking of weight loss, I'm calling January at 4lbs.  I'm pretty happy with that!  That's about the norm for me and a little over so I'm happy.  Not sure what the next 4 weeks will be, but we will see.  I'd like another 4lbs., but I know that if I put a time or a number on it, I will freak and not do as well.  I'm not sure why I'm like that.  I don't get it.  Right now, I'm trying to decide if I should even weigh-in until next Friday.  I'm done weighing in on Saturdays.  It just doesn't work for me.  We have date night on Fridays when we can and it's just easier to always do weigh-ins on the same days.  I can't remember what my original first weigh-in day was.... I think for a long time I always did Thurs. but I can't remember.  I guess I will look over the calendar and really be honest about which day is going to work best and help to keep me motivated.

Well, it is now Sunday.  So I guess I better get my Saturday post up.  Hope you all are having a great weekend!

  1. January was four pounds for me too. And I also have a bday party to go to later. Weird weird.

    I am debating on whether I want to start tracking calories with myfitnesspal again. Sometimes I like it, and other times it's hard to be accurate. There are certain foods that I end up guessing on, and then hope for the best. That's tricky though since a piece of cake can vary greatly in calories.

    I think I am going to go with one weigh in a month, and maybe track calories. Not sure yet. I might just stick with portion sizing, and then start tracking again when I get to the 180s and probably plateau.


Feel free to comment -- I love reading them and I try to respond! :D
