Good Morning, Everyone!

Last night I was too tired, again, to add on any yoga. Hopefully I can get caught back up on my stuff that I need to do. DH mentioned about cooking burgers for the game tonight. I am also planning on doing a workout and getting my yoga in. I am up on a scale a little. I have seen much worse gains, so I will take it. Since it wasn't a large gain, I wonder if I will show a second gain. That happens sometimes with me.

Calories for yesterday: 2010 +
Weigh In: 164.8
Up: .8

Have a great day!

This lady has harassed and threatened us by phone and through Facebook until we had to get a protective order....She threatened to sue us and called state child welfare services making all sorts of allegations about us, niece, her boyfriend etc...Today she was in the store at the same time as us and followed my niece around the store yelling at her and me that we "took her child away from her"...ummm NOT her child....(??!!)
OMG! That's even more scary than the phone calls! I'd have a GPS on that child. People are really nuts.




I'll be off to work soon and then picking up my son after.

It's getting to the point that I don't want to work 5 days anymore. I think I want to cut back to 4 but I'm afraid to ask, I think the owner would get pissy since I was so adamant about working 5 days upon hiring...but I thought I would be broke. It turns out I'm doing ok money wise which is great (*knock on wood) but I am getting burned out working so much. I think I will play it safe and not say anything until after May when I have been there a year and 100% positive I want to drop a day. For now I should request vacation time in June before anyone else does.

BBL.

DH took both the little kids over to his bro's house to watch the Superbowl...they even took our dog LOL...the older kids are all out somewhere still....I've had the house to myself for over THREE HOURS (!!!!)....it's been soooo nice I've done all the laundry, I patched up son's Cub Scout uniform badges, I paid the last of the bills, and I even got our taxes done online and filed then I went shopping for supplies that I need this week at my program...now i'm going to put away the laundry and clean the kitchen....

I don't really want time to relax....it's just SO NICE to be able to get chores done without everyone underfoot, in the way, and being loud

Hi Everyone!

Coolmom Another option for veggies, especially if you are really busy. You can buy a juice that has a variety of veggies. This isn't perfect, but it can help. You can even keep a bottle in the pantry or at work if you need. There are other brands to choose from. This company has some good options:

http://www.lakewoodjuices.com/product_detail/id-95/
http://www.lakewoodjuices.com/product_detail/id-96/
http://www.lakewoodjuices.com/product_detail/id-92/
http://www.lakewoodjuices.com/product_detail/id-94/

Alaskanlaughter I'm glad you had a little break today. It's nice to feel accomplished.

Novangel I'm glad your work is doing well and obviously growing! Good for you.

Ian Congrats on the pound!

Kelijpa Is your DH following your lead with the food and exercise? (do you eat and exercise the same?)

The grocery store where I shop is no longer carrying the yogurt I normally eat. I eat the small cups. I have been curious if my yogurt is triggering my sweet tooth. I have gotten to where I eat the yogurt before my apple. When I ate the yogurt last I seemed to feel munchy. Since the store is no longer carrying it, I decided to sub sugar snap peas. My only concern is that the yogurt has protein and protein seems to fill me up. But, in the past, I have consumed extra veggies to fill me up where as that small cup of yogurt wouldn't fill me up. So I bought enough sugar snap peas to get me through the week. I will see how I feel with this substitution. I probably won't change the info on my lunch posting. I will just see how it goes. If it goes well, I will change the info.

Total Approx 1845 Calories +

Breakfast (395 Calories + coffee)

This is what I had yesterday.

Breakfast:
-light raspberry yogurt

Lunch:
-quesadilla w/ low carb tortilla and cheddar cheese

Dinner:
-cod cooked with a little butter, soy sauce, and lemon juice
-kale salad

Treat:
-oatmeal chocolate chip caramel bar (I made them for a Super Bowl party my husband was going to and of course tried one, this was planned out a good month in advance so it wasn't an unexpected splurge or anything)

Overall, wish the day had more produce, but we needed to go to the store! Store trip happened between lunch and dinner, which is how I had kale salad with dinner Glad to have fresh fruits and veggies in the fridge again!

I stayed under my calorie goal today in spite of being at a Super Bowl Tailgate Party.

The scale was kind to me today and went down 3 pounds!!

I ended my day at 1300 calories and 93 carbs and THEN I had two bowls of cereal I don't know what the calorie or carb content was but i'm FINALLY full and satiated and not craving sweets anymore....*sigh* some days are just like that, NEVER full, perhaps because of my weight training? not sure...

Hello everyone, I have been appearing and disappearing on this forum. That is because my weight loss strategies have been on and off. As a result I have gained 8 pounds! I was 159 when I left this forum because I was frustrated that I did not lose any more weight. Now that I left it, I have regained the weight and right now I will be happy to be 159!

I also got diagnosed with runner's knee so I can't run anymore which is my primary exercise. This forum was so helpful in losing and maintaining my weight last year. I look forward to getting back on and back on track

I am inspired reading your daily accountability and even if I dont post everyday I have promised myself to read everyday and get inspired

Thanks for the juice links, Diana. Veggie juice is hard for me to choke down. I'm having a cocktail with organic cranberry juice right now though. Much needed after the work weekend I just finished!

Today's food...
Breakfast:
Egg with spinach and feta
Two bacon
Coffee with milk

Lunch:
8 California rolls (on the run)

Dinner:
Baked yams and apples
Bit of ww pasta with red sauce
Two cosmos

Total cals 1140. Tomorrow is a fast day, with just breakfast. Hopefully this puffiness will leave!
