Day 350  My Struggle………

I went grocery shopping this morning after taking the kids to school. Going to town kills my whole day. I have to go back Friday to have my daughter’s car aligned. I really dread it but it has to be done. I’ve been tired since I’ve been back. I guarantee tonight I’ll be wide awake when I should be sleeping.

I’ve done good eating today. I’m getting pretty good at staying in calorie range. Still need to work on sugar and sodium though.

I’m way behind on steps. I knew today would be a challenge meeting my goal. I have a few hours left. I’m not giving up yet. Let you know tomorrow if I make my goal.

Have a great night!

Day 349   My Struggle……..

It’s only Tuesday but I’m ready for Friday. I believe the kids are too! Three day weekend due to the eclipse Monday.

I’m under calories for the day but I’m over on sugar. That’s due to my Halo ice cream I had for a snack earlier. If you’re wondering , I did eat the whole pint. That’s why I like Halo. They know you’re not going to stop eating once you start. If you eat their low calorie ice cream ,it saves you from the guilt you’d get from the regular pints of ice cream.

I’ve got in my steps today with 70 active minutes. I had Zumba again this evening so it was easy. I don’t tomorrow so it will be a challenge to get them in.

Hope you have a great night!

Day 347  My Struggle………

Where did the weekend go? It seemed to go by way to fast, along with summer.

We had nice homecoming at church. I did manage just eat a bite of things. I’m pretty happy with myself. Not sure my calorie amount but I know if I only eat a few hundred more calories I shouldn’t be over my calorie goal.

I’m still working on my steps for the day. I took a nap after church since the water in the pool was too cold. I took a nice short walk with my girls this evening. I bought me a variety puzzle book the other day. I finally got to sit outside on the porch and work a few. So, all in all it’s been a great day! 

Hope you had a great day!

Day 343   My Struggle………

No Zumba tonight. Which means I’m struggling to get my steps in. Looks like I’ll be doing the walking in circles around the couch till I do later.

I bit the bullet and weighed in today. I have 22 days to lose 8 pounds. That’s going to be a struggle.

My eating has been fine today. I’m staying in my calorie range. I go over on other things every now and then. Sometimes it’s sodium, sugar or fat that gets me. Yesterday it was all of them. I was under calories though. 

When you are the only one trying to eat right in the house it’s hard. Especially, if your on a budget. I always by groceries for everyone else first then myself. I live with red meat, potatoes and pasta people. The struggle is real! The protein drinks have been a big help this week. 

I keep trying to be the little engine that could but this hill feels like a mountain to climb. I haven’t given up yet! I still keep saying “I think I can!”

Have a great night!

Day 342     My Struggle………

Much easier day today! Took the kids to school, came home, finished laundry, and straightened up. 

I ate pretty good today. I made scrambled eggs for lunch. I used one whole egg and three egg whites. I did use a piece of cheese and a 1/2 Tbls of ketchup on top. I also had a Tbls of country crock light. Sounds like a lot but it was only 228 calories. Breakfast was just juice. Dinner I made ziti and breadsticks. I only ate one breadstick but instead of the ziti I had a pasta lean cuisine. Nature Valley has made a granola biscuit with coconut cream. They are 190 calories but ver delicious. They kinda taste like a oatmeal cream cake. Hard instead of soft.

I had Zumba tonight so I got in my steps with 60 active minutes. 

That’s my diet/exercise blog for today!

Have a great night!

Day 341   My Struggle……….

It’s Monday! I’m pretty glad this day is about over. I had to take my mother in law to the Dr. this morning. It just had to rain today. It seems like it rains every time I have to go somewhere. 

When I got home I had to start laundry and clean the house. Looks like I’ll still be doing laundry tomorrow. I picked up subs for dinner so I didn’t have to cook at least. 

I had Zumba tonight. I’m still a few steps short of my goal but I’m going to get them no matter what it takes. I have an hour of cardio in for the day. 

I have not ate dinner yet. I’m going to have a lean cuisine. I bought the subs for my husband and kids. I had protein shakes for breakfast and lunch. I’m going to try and be really good this week since I splurged on the weekend. Hopefully, it will balance out.

Hope your week has started off great!

Day 338    My Struggle………

This morning started off with taking the kids to school. I still can’t believe summer vacation is over.

I came home and napped. My body wasn’t ready for the change either. When I got up I cleaned house and did the laundry. Then it was time to go back and pick up the kids.

I try to always pray for my children. Sometimes more than once a day. I know God definitely heard and answered my prayers today. My oldest could of easily went over the bank this evening in her car. The power steering locked up on her. There is not a scratch on her and by looking at the car you can’t tell anything is wrong with it. God is so good!

My eating has been good today but I am still working on my steps. This weekend is going to be challenge because we are going to the lake. 

Hope everyone has a blessed weekend!
