Day 344     My Struggle……….

Today was a little rainy. My body doesn’t care for rain. I wonder why a lot of people are sore from just the weather alone. Might have to google that later.

I think I’ve done really good this week. I just need to go good on the next couple of weekends too. I can’t afford any more setbacks.

My calories are good for the day. I even have enough left for a snack. I’m deciding if I want halo ice cream or a nature valley biscuit.

I have in over 13,000 steps with 78 active minutes. I’m going to try to get to 15,000 before I have to charge my Fitbit. 

Have a great night!

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 340    My Struggle…….

Another day at the lake, another day without enough steps. It was also a day filled with family and friends. The fun the kids had was something I feel they needed before the school year gets going. I know their first day was officially Friday but tomorrow is when the work starts.

Back to dieting and calorie burning tomorrow!

Hope you had a great weekend!

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!
