I ate 1250 calories. While this is great, I ate awful food and am completely unhappy. Frozen pizza, white bread and feta cheese. Just awful stuff. Doubling the exercises tomorrow.

I really would like to figure out my gym time. I used to run and weight train in college and it was the only time that I've ever been close to in shape! I find it really hard to work out to a tape, but it may be one of my only options for now. My work schedule just intensified and I don't think I have enough time to work out at the gym before picking up the little one as I would sometimes do before.

Anyway, my meal plan today is:

Jan 8, 2014
B: Hot tea w/lemon and agave (30), 1 cup mushroom soup (130) = 160
S: None = 0
L: 1 cup spicy blue cheese tomato soup (118) = 118
S: Baby carrots/cucumbers (50) w/ light ranch (80) = 130
D: Buffalo chicken sausage (70), mushrooms, onion (30), potato (165), neufchatel/franks sauce (45) = 310
S: bottle champagne (250) = 250
TOTAL: 968

Glad to see everyone again!

Welcome NewKate2014 - I'm like you - I try to keep my calorie range between 1200-1500, but as close to 1200 as I can.

Yesterday was a good day, 1254 calories and 14478 steps.

Today is looking good, 1206 calories so far if I can keep the snack monster away, and 13657 steps so far, although I doubt there'll be much more after now as it's 8.20 pm. Maybe a couple of hundred or so till bedtime.

Well I haven't posted for a few days, I've had a hard time staying within my calorie goals for some reason! I've been eating from boredom from being stuck in the house due to winter storm yuk

Yesterday was a good day:
3,323 steps
1.47 miles
1,791 calories burned
1,140 calories eaten
151 calories left (so I was under)
67 fl oz water

Wow, this place has gotten busy which is great.

I've been eating a bit too much for my liking recently. I'm going on a 2.5 week holiday on Sunday and I think I'm already in vacation mode. Tomorrow's my husband's 30th b-day as well so I knew the bad food was going to start a couple days before we left so I really should have been doing better to stay on track this week. I'm currently 'deskwarming' at school which means the kids and most of the teachers/staff are on vacation but I get to come to work and sit on my butt all day and do nothing. There's quite a few snacks being served as well which I normally would avoid but can't because there's so few of us here to eat them.

I probably won't check in here until I get back the end of January so hopefully you all are still here and have stuck on plan much better than I will have.

Changer girl, have a great time on holiday! Whenever I go on vacation I do that same thing...start my holiday eating days before we leave. You probably won't gain while you are away because you will be busy all day! I love teaching, but it's quite fun when the kids aren't there! .

Skelley, that is totally understandable being trapped at home, but glad you had a good day!

Day 11: 1238/1800
Had a great day today! I feel as if my entire day is revolved around eating though. Always trying to think of what the next meal/snack will be and how many calories it will be. Hopefully as time goes on my mind will not be obsessing over this at all times

Ugh, I'm still trying to climb back on the wagon.
You'll see a lot more posts from me as I try and keep up my daily accountability once again.

Yesterday was ok, ate around 1300-1400cals BUT my food choices haven't been very good. I need to work on that. I also need to get back to exercising regularly. It's so easy to slip and I have 0 motivation at the moment. I need a good kick up the butt!

Weighing in on Monday, so scared to see what the scale reads.

Wednesday stats:
Calories: 1305 (7da also 1305)
Steps: 14311
Miles: 6.08

It's starting to come down. Had a cracking start - lost 3.2 in three days, then it stalled for a few days, now today and yesterday I've seen a 0.2 drop both mornings. It's slow, but I'll take it.

Hi and welcome, Robisa. A loss is a loss, better than a gain!

Have a great vacation!
I agree its great to see so many people here. The more the merrier!
Yesterday was not a great day for me. Calories were only 1245, but work was crazy and I missed lunch altogether and didn't get home until almost 7:00. Since my calorie intake was so low I decided it was a good enough excuse to have a few glasses of wine to unwind.
Also, still under 5000 steps for the day. I'm disappointed in myself because it's not just about the calories and weight loss for me, I want to get into healthier habits. Oh well, I guess awareness is the first step...
Today will be better! Have a great day everyone!

I think you kind of have to be that way to really stick to it at first! But then you will get into routines and you will not have to think about everything. I like to talk about it on here but I do not talk about my dieting with people unless they ask me and even then I don't say a lot other than to say what diet I'm doing. I just don't like it when someone talks endlessly about all of that, so I don't want to do that!
I find if I keep myself busy I will not have time to think about it as much. Because I agree it's just too much for the brain sometimes. In the summer when I wasn't teaching I was reading, doing cross stitch and painting my nails just to do things that kept my hands and brain busy! Now that schools in, and I teach full time and at a college in the evening, I don't have time for hobbies!
