Day 363  My Struggle…….

Two more dieting days left! Well, what I’ll be blogging about anyway. Then my goal will be maintaining my weight and if I lose a few more that’d be okay too.

When I woke up this morning I didn’t feel well. My knee and ankles were bothering me. So I ended up taking a nap. I even went to bed early last night. Won’t be napping tomorrow though. I gotta go get groceries. 

I did a low carb diet today and I am going to continue it for the next two days. I don’t know if it will help with my results but, I’m going to try it. I’ll be sick of tuna, eggs, and cheese by then. I don’t know ,I really like cheese.

I got my steps in with 60 active minutes. Tomorrow, I don’t have Zumba so I’m going to have to work hard at getting my steps in.

Have a great night!

Day 362  My Struggle………

What a fall like day we had here today. I don’t know if I’m ready to let summer go. I am looking forward to making a big pot of chili when it gets a little cooler.

Today was a day of cleaning, laundry, cooking, and Zumba. It’s been a good day though. I enjoy getting things done. 

I took no nap today. I’m trying to kick that habit. I want to start going to bed earlier and I can’t do that if I take nap during the day.

My eating has been good but a normal day. I still cut my calories but nothing extreme. I did use my measuring cup so I wouldn’t eat too much mashed potatoes and stuffing. I had 1/3 cup of both of those. Then I also had 1/2 a roll and some turkey. It’s hard to cook a good meal and not have any. 

I got in my steps with 60 active minutes for the day.

Last night I got into the peanut butter and I had a few little mini carmel apple milky ways. That was not good. That’s why I need to go to bed earlier. I won’t be eating late at night after the kitchen is supposed to be closed. Hopefully, I can control myself this evening.

Have a great night!

Day 361  My Struggle………

Happy Sunday!

I’ve had a nice day.  I went to church. It was a great service! I really needed the message I heard today. I’ve spent time with my children making memories. I only wish my husband didn’t have to work today so he too could of had a nice day. He also had to leave before I had brunch done.

I made breakfast for lunch after church. We’re always in a hurry Sunday morning so we usually wait to eat after we get home. I had almost all my carbs in one meal. It was actually my only big meal today. I pretty much just had snacks throughout the rest of the day. I had string cheese,  an apple with a smidge of light carmel dip, and a 1/2 pack of nature valley honey biscuits with unsweetened cashew milk.

I walked some with my youngest. Then I went on a ride to the top of the mountain with my son. I walked down while he rode beside me on the four wheeler. The scenery today was just beautiful. 

I almost have my steps in and I have 45 active minutes for the day. I think for a Sunday I’ve done good. Tomorrow-Thursday I’m going to be extra good when it comes to eating and exercising. Might not reach my goal but I’d like to come close at least.

Have a great night!

Day 360   My Struggle……….

How’s your weekend going so far? Good I hope!

I went to town this morning to pick up my oldest from college. We then picked up cake and pizza for a early birthday celebration for my dad. I did have one slice of pizza with a small piece of cake. It’s amazing how a little bit of carbs makes me a nicer person. 

Since I had pizza and cake at lunchtime, I made scrambled eggs for dinner. I used one egg with three egg whites to make them healthier. 

I got in 13,000 steps with 100 active minutes. I walked in place while watching a movie with my oldest. 

Have a great night!

Day 359  My Struggle………

What can I say about today. It wasn’t great or bad just so so. I took my oldest ones car and got it aligned. My husband is going to change the oil and it’s ready for her to take to college.

My day consisted of a trip to town, taking kids to/from school, and laundry. 

I’m behind on my steps. Will be working on that later. 

I’m doing good on my calories. I’m trying to cut some carbs but my fat grams are up. I’m also very moody. Apparently cutting carbs makes me grouchy. I didn’t even cut them that low. It’s having a big affect on me though. I don’t know if my family or even I can stand myself for a week of this. 

Hope you’re having a good night!

Thanks so much for reading and God Bless!

Day 358   My Struggle……

One more week and I’ve blogged everyday for a year. My last post will actually be on September 1st. I’m close to my goal but it’s not looking like I’m going to hit it. I’ve been contemplating on how I’m going to handle it if I don’t reach it. 

I managed to get my steps in last night even though it was tough. I had Zumba today so I have my steps in with 60 active minutes.

My eating has been good today. I had a protein shake for breakfast/lunch. String cheese for snack. Dinner was a struggle but I managed. I had two bites each of meatloaf, mashed potatoes,green beans, and 1/2 a roll. That was kinda like my appetizer. For my big meal I had a boiled egg and can of tuna in water. It was filling and my calories and nutrition are all good. Plus, I even have room for my low calorie ice cream.

That’s all for today!

Have a great night!

Day 357   My Struggle………. 

Yesterday was such a good day I should of knew today would be a challenge. Thankfully, it’s about over. I went to bed early last night. I was thinking I’ll feel good in the morning. Nope not a chance. I have been tired and achy all day.

I hit my head on a metal pole outside. No injury just a sore head. Then my car battery died at the school house while in line to pick up my kids. My friends husband jumped my car and it’s been fine since. 

I had Youth Night at church tonight. It went good and I was feeling better by then. I’m just really wore out and I have a headache. I need to get at least 4000 more steps in but I’m not feeling it. 

My eating has been okay. Still plenty of room for improvement.

Have a great night!
