You reap what you sow.
Wednesday night, as I have already blogged about, I lost my head and stayed up until 3:30 a.m. googling STUPID stuff on the internet. Woke up the next morning (yesterday) and had a crazy busy day. I was gone from the house from 9 a.m. until around 8 p.m. The kids had activities to go to, I ran errands for my mother and then I bought groceries at three different grocery stores. (bad timewise, great bargain wise!) Thankfully, mom babysat the kids while I was at the grocery stores.
After I got home, I ate my pie and read some blogs. (yes, pie. Hershey Sundae Pie, which I love, was on sale and I told myself all day that if I would eat reasonably all day and have enough calories left that I could have 2 pieces...which I did) Hubby said he wanted to go to walmart and buy The Biggest Loser game for the wii, to which I said "I am going nowhere, but if you want to, go ahead". After he got home and was trying out the game, I laid on the couch "to watch" and fell asleep there within minutes.
My 30 minutes of exerercise did NOT get done. :( So, I failed on one part of the spring challenge yesterday. I plan to make up for it today by doing an hour of exercise.
Something else I need to tweak about the spring challenge is this: Writing something good about myself everyday is a bit much. It is hard to come up with something AND I sound really full of myself. LOL So, I am going to change that to once per week and my "spring challenge check-in" day will probably be Tuesday because that is TOPS day and I always report on that.
(keep in mind, 95% of this was eaten while on the go)
9 a.m.....140 cals
fiber one bar
10 a.m....293 cals
junior breakfast burrito from sonic
12:10 p.m.....120 cals
4 pack pb crackers
2:40 p.m....630 cals
1.5 cups bran flakes
half cup granola
half a banana
1.5 cup 1% milk (I actually ran to the house between grocery stores to fix this cereal and take it with me. I knew it would be better than driving through somewhere...plus I didn't want to eat too much UNhealthy stuff since I planned to have the very unhealthy pie before bed)
7:30 p.m.....326 cals
6" turkey sub from subway
2 piece hershey sundae pie
1 pc. pizza (little ceasars)
fiber one 90 cal bar
TOTAL CALS= 2,594 (in range)
water= 86 ounces ( I drove through and got a 44 ounce ice water twice!)
P.S. For many years, I told myself that I would be at my goal weight before I turned 30. But 30 came and went. Then I said "before 31". etc, etc. One week from today I will turn 32. All I'm shooting for is to be less than 300 pounds. That means I need to lose 5 and a fourth pounds. I'll have to really boogie if I'm going to. Wish me luck and a solid resolve!
