Day 292   My Struggle…….

Today, I am back to trying to do better at watching what I eat. I’ve been losing the same two pounds over and over. It takes me five days to lose them and I regain them on the weekend. If I was at my goal weight this wouldn’t be to bad. It’s very bad though when you’re trying to lose because you’re not getting anywhere.

I had watermelon for breakfast, smoothie for lunch, and grilled chicken salad for dinner. Almonds and dark chocolate for a snack. I have one snack left and I’m going to make sure it doesn’t make me go over on my nutrition goals or calories. If I start strong on Monday it helps with the rest of the week.

I had Zumba class today and I also practiced a new routine. I have over 14,000 steps with 80 active minutes.

How’s your Monday been?

Day 290   My Struggle……

Hope everyone is having a nice weekend so far!

I met my oldest for lunch before she traveled to a new location to do VBS with her college and other groups. My youngest two went with me too. It was nice to have all three of my children together with me even if it was for a short time.

Didn’t really track my food, because I know it wasn’t a diet friendly day. We had Wendy’s for lunch and today I made my husbands favorite dinner for Father’s Day. Which consisted of meatloaf, mashed potatoes, green beans, and rolls.

I’m also down on my steps but I have got in 30 active minutes from playing ball with my son. I also drank all my water for the day. 

Have a great night!

Day 289   My Struggle……..

Happy Friday!

Yesterday, I met all my goals except for the sodium.  Today, I met everything so far but sugar. I made some treats for Father’s Day and I had to try them to make sure they were edible.

I almost have in my steps with 64 active minutes. I had Zumba class tonight. I’ll have my goal in before bed time.

Other than the sweets I tried to eat good. Banana for breakfast, Ham and lettuce wraps for lunch and a 1/2 a serving of pasta for dinner.

Now, I’m going to go get ready to watch some TV with the family. Except I’ll be walking in place rather than sitting down. Have a great night!

Day 288  My Struggle……

I went to town today. It was so packed I thought it was Friday instead of Thursday. I didn’t do much after I got home other than practice Zumba. 

I had my youngest with me and I let her pick where we had lunch. She picked Pizza Hut. I ordered a personal pan veggie pizza. It’s less than 500 calories plus, I don’t eat the edge of the crust. She had the buffet and it looked really good but I hung in there.

I still have 2000 steps to get in but I do have 60 active minutes.

I’ve been doing good drinking my water. I finished another pitcher of water today. Doing much better on my sugar grams but I’m always a few fat grams over by evening.I got everyone a pint of ice cream. I was going to get some halo ice cream for me but I knew I’d eat the whole pint and my sugar level would be outrageous. So, I just took a small bite of theirs. That’s three bites total if you were wondering.

That’s my diet/exercise blog for today!

How was your day?

Day 287  My Struggle…….

Today was much better than yesterday! I feel like I accomplished something today. That always makes my day better. 

I put a pitcher of water in the fridge for today so I could keep track of how much I drank. I’m happy to say I finished all 64 ounces of it. I refilled it and I’m ready to do it again tomorrow.

Last night, I binged on starbursts and a small bag of chips. I didn’t eat a lot but it caused me to go over on my sugar and fat. Stayed in my calorie range though. I managed my fat and sugar today so I can have a snack and not regret it.

I did 1/2 a serving of almonds with cheese today. Then we had beans and fake fried hash browns. I really like I can make fake fried anything in my red copper skillet. Just a little nonstick spray and it’s ready to go.

I almost got in my steps with 45 active minutes. 

How was your day?

Day 286   My Struggle…….

Today has been one of those days. It started out really hot and got little cooler after the thunderstorms. I’ve not felt my best today. Less pain but really sleepy. I think it’s because I woke up four times trying to sleep last night.

Last night when I wrote my blog I hadn’t went over in my nutrition goals. I ended up going over a little in fat grams after my snack. Right now I’m where I need to be but I haven’t had snack yet.

If I could start this day over I would because I really need a redo. I am just not feeling it. I don’t even have my steps in or close to doing so. Maybe, I’ll walk in place in a bit while watching tv.

Like I said it’s just been one of those days!

Hope you had a good day!
