Day 327   My Struggle………..

It’s Monday and it’s been a warm one! 

I had Zumba today so no problem getting in my steps today. I have in almost 20,000 steps and 124 active minutes. I practiced some before Zumba so that helped with my steps too.

I’ve done good on eating today too! I have some calories left for a snack. Which is good because my oldest came home and I know she’s going to eat snacks in front of me. Kids are really bad for that and husbands.

Thirty-seven days left and 9 pounds to go!

I think I can, I think I can!

Have a great night!

Day 326  My Struggle………

Went to church this morning. Came home and I got sleepy. I fought taking a nap though. I cleaned the kitchen counter tops and laundry room instead. It was starting to look cluttered and I do not like clutter. 

I’ve done well on my calories today. I ended up going over last night. I knew I would regret it this morning but I still gave into my food cravings. Hopefully, not enough to effect my weight loss. 

I just finished getting in my steps with 65 active minutes. My husband and kids went down to the church with me to walk. It started out pretty warm but the clouds started coming in and it helped cool it down some.

All in all it’s been a blessed day!

Hope you have a blessed evening!

Day 325   My Struggle……..

I got up this morning and went to town. I had to get ice cream for our church’s ice cream social Wednesday. I bought 10 gallons and 96 cups of ice cream. This made me really want a ice cream cone from McDonald’s. I resisted temptation and settled for a large unsweetened tea.

It has been beautiful here but too hot to play outside. I ended up being lazy and took a nap. When it cooled down some I finally got outside. Then the bugs started biting. Back in the house I went.

I had my calories in check but lacked any exercise. So, I called a friend and we went for a walk. I got in my steps with 60 active minutes. 

Hope your having a nice weekend!

Day 324   My Struggle…….

I get up and start the laundry. Thinking , I will get this done and straighten the house and all will be well. It was all well till after lunch. Then the stress came. One word (FAFSA)! There was some needed attention on my daughters financial aid. I don’t know why it’s called aid because all we do is fill out for loans on loans along with the little bit of scholarship money from the school. I think we got it all straightened out, I pray so anyway.

I only got 39 active minutes today. I will get at least fifteen more mins getting in the last of my steps while watching TV later. 

Since I didn’t do anymore than 39 active minutes today ,I only have 1200 calories for the day.  I have 150 calories left and I’m trying to figure out what I’m going to use them on. I would of had 90 more than that but after spending over two hours searching, printing, and emailing Fafsa information , I let myself have a Coke Life.

Have a great evening!

Day 323   My Struggle………

We’re having a heat wave here. How’s your weather? I’d go outside to check on the animals and then back in the house. 

Today, I get to consume 1250 calories. The reason I get an extra 50 calories is because of all the calories I burned. I had two Zumba classes this evening. That helped me get in over 100 active minutes and 15,000 steps.

Picture it, I’m sitting here writing my blog while my son and husband stuff their faces with ice cream cones. Oh the joys of being the only person in the house on a diet. Thankfully, I have a couple hundred calories left. I also have a pint of halo in the freezer. 

Hope everyone has a great night!

Day 322   My Struggle……….

I got up today not feeling it lol. I did not sleep well and I was sore. I wasn’t sore from Zumba, just the getting older aches and pains. Once I started moving I felt better. That and some ibuprofen.

I went to the calendar and added up how many days I had left to reach my weight goal. Just a little more than 6 weeks. I think I procrastinated a little too much. That’s okay because I’m going to work hard the next six weeks. The scale gave me the kick in the butt I needed.

I need to lose two pounds a week to make it. So I went to my trusty fitness pal and put in my goal. I have to eat 1200 calories a day and burn 250-300 a day to make it happen.

I’m a little bit behind on my steps today because it’s hot. I did 15 minutes of Zumba and thought I was going to have a heat stroke. So, I’m just going to do some walking while watching tv because I won’t be doing any late night snacking tonight.

I have ate my calories and I have to say I did good today. We had a veggie dinner. We had pinto beans, fresh corn on the cob, fresh tomatoes, and cucumbers. The garden came in handy today. I did make my husband fried zucchini and I did eat three slices. That’s a lot better than a bowl of fried zucchini I usually eat. I also had 1/2 a serving of cornbread because let’s face it you gotta have it with beans. Now, I just have 43 days to get through.

Hope everyone has a great night!

Day 321  My Struggle………

Got up this morning and did laundry and cleaned house. It’s been hot here this week. The heat index is supposed to reach 100. While I was waiting on the clothes to dry the kids and I got in the pool.

I had Zumba tonight , I also have in my steps with 60 active minutes. I’m under calories for the day. Little over on sodium though. I’ve been tracking calories better but I still need to work on no eating at night. It’s just a struggle to break bad habits. 

My husband has ate the same snack food for work everyday since we been married. He has taken a Little Debbie honey bun to work for 17 yrs. I on the other hand do not like to eat the same thing over and over. Doesn’t matter if it’s healthy or not I get tired of the same food. So, what I’m getting at is lol. I have a new snack I’ve been eating. It’s the Think Thin bars. They make me feel like I’m eating something bad for me but they’re pretty healthy. Just wanted to share in case you’re like me and wanted something different. They have 20 grams of protein too.

Have a great night!
