Freeee!

December 30th, 2008

Yes! My last set of guests left today. You have no idea how relieved I am. This last set were eaters too. They ate A LOT. I’m not exaggerating.

To sum up my weekend… alcohol, ice cream cake, and more roscoe’s chicken and waffles. It was bad. Not a healthy scrap of food in the apartment.

On after Monday.

December 26th, 2008

I have 3 more days to get through until I can be better to myself. The last 2 days were just… BLEH. Driving, food, family. It’s going to be like that for a few more days until my last set of visitors leave.

I’m tired.

Feeling better.

December 23rd, 2008

My body is finally feeling better. I’ve even gained my energy back. I even weighed in at 162 today! I got down to 161 last week, but I’m guessing all that gravy is still in my system.

I forgot to mention that according to the BMI scale (I know.. it’s crap), I’m no longer obese :D. Now I’m just plain overweight. I also looked at the pictures we took this weekend, and I look damn good. Yup. I can finally see changes. My legs are practically toothpicks.

I’m still not working out yet. I wake up in the morning and think… it’s too cold to go out for a run today. I am still craving that runner’s high though. My goal this week is to get at least one run in.

Detox.

December 22nd, 2008

Ugh. Don’t you hate it when you eat massive amounts of unhealthy food and then go back to your regular healthy eating habits and you just feel like crap.

I’m in for one more week of detox after this.

5 down, 2 to go.

Ahhhh… the 5 guests from Vegas left a couple of hours ago. 7 people in the apartment + 1 bathroom = NOT FUN.

Let me just say that after this weekend, methinks my new blood type is gravy seriously. Friday night, their dinner request was pork chop gravy with white rice, so that’s exactly what we had. Saturday morning, I ate my usually healthy breakfast, despite the massive amounts of leftovers we had from the night before. Lunch, I had a pepperoni wetzel pretzel and frozen lemonade. Dinner, we ate at this popular oldie diner and everything on the menu included gravy and mashed potatoes. Their idea of a “vegetable” was canned corn. Which brings me to this morning. We had Roscoe’s chicken and waffles. And it was damn good.

Despite all the bad food, I never overate. In fact, I only ate until I was full and I drank a lot of water. I ended up eating half or less than half of everything. We also walked all day.

Still here!

Hello my dear readers. Don’t worry, your fellow 3FC-er is still here. She’s just being more lenient with herself during the holidays.

lol. Sorry for talking in 3rd person. I’m actually doing pretty good considering the circumstances. I’m still watching my portions. Trying to eat as healthy as I can. Haven’t really worked out, but I am walking more than I’m used to, shopping for presents and all that good stuff. I really want to get a couple workouts in before the year is over, but we’ll see how our schedule is.

I’ll be checking in now and then to update, but I definitely will be blogging everyday in the new year.

*yawn*.

December 16th, 2008

Workouts have been nonexistent lately due to the weather. Foodwise has been okay. Not much food in the house. Totally broke at the moment. I don’t see myself getting back into my “normal” routine until the new year. Sucks, I know. I’m just going to try to get workouts in while I can and eat as healthy as I can.

Hope everyone else is getting by a lot better than I am. Happy Holidays!

December Challenges.

December 13th, 2008

I’m so stressed out right now. I thought since I’m not going home for Christmas, the holidays this year would be a quiet one. I was wrong. Terribly wrong.

  • 12/19 - 12/21: Boyfriend’s family from Vegas are visiting and staying with us.
  • 12/24 - 12/25: Spending Christmas Eve at Disneyland and Aunt’s house.
  • 12/26 - 12/29: My cousin from the Bay Area is spending her birthday with me.
  • 12/31 - 01/01: Haven’t decided yet.

In between all that will be Christmas shopping. Which means a lot of time in malls. Which means “mall food”. All that time with family also means many many days of no working out. It also means… no $$$ :(. Maybe I should’ve gone home for Christmas after all.

Thank you.

HilaryAnne aka The New Me…. (link unknown) - Your comment helped me get through my workout today :) This is what she wrote for those who are curious:

I just wanted to take a minute to encourage you in your workout! Your tag line is “one day at a time” so don’t think about the 3 days you haven’t worked out and focus on tomorrow. Tomorrow is a new day and WHEN you get your workout in, you won’t be able to say, “I haven’t worked out in 3 days”. Instead you’ll be able to say “I worked out today and can do the same thing again tomorrow” Good Luck and just remember to keep pushing!!!!!

I woke up this morning, put on my workout clothes and worked out. It seems simple to do, but trust me, it was hard. But I did it and I feel better about myself. More good things: I stepped on the scale to see 163! I know it’s probably a fluke because the scale hasn’t been moving for almost 2 months, but it’s something. I just hope it stays there. And if it doesn’t, at least I saw a different number. I must be doing something right. Right? Maybe my body just needs to catch up to all the good things I’ve been doing for it. Maybe it finally acknowledged that, “Hey… she’s taking care of me on a regular basis, I guess I can let go of this fat now.” Well if bodies could talk :)

*chants* Please don’t let it be a fluke… Please don’t let it be a fluke.

New excuse everyday.

December 11th, 2008

It’s been 3 days since my last workout (hah, sounds like I’m at confession).

Today’s excuse? It’s too cold outside and it will be dark in 1 1/2 hrs.

It’s getting bad. Bad to the point where I feel like not making a commitment to workout until the new year. :(

But I can’t do that. Srsly. Somebody snap me out of it.
