215.4 today.

I really need to step it up.  My next reward goal is 210.  I have been so close, but then I just get to where I don’t care and just eat whatever and I go back up.  I’m going to do better today.  I hate thinking about it though.  It seems like the more I think about it, the more I want to eat, and the less I want to drink water…ugh.  My last few posts haven’t been about getting healthy just because I’ve kind of put it on the back burner.  However, I feel like the fact that I’m still blogging and visiting the forum means something.  I used to just forget about it all until I decided to get back on track with things.  So, I’m proud of myself for doing this even though I’m not actively REALLY trying to lose weight.  Yes, I want to lose and I like seeing a loss on the scale, but I just haven’t been putting forth much of an effort.  I did, however, move more yesterday.  Me and Baby Girl danced around yesterday and yes, that will tire you out when you have to hold 20-something pounds while bouncing around the house.  She really enjoyed it though and so did I.  It was fun.  I may have to do it again today if she’s in the mood.  Gotta love those moody one-year-olds.

Anyway, so far today I have eaten a little bit of Special K…and I mean a tiny bit because I was actually feeding it to BG.  And then, I had a rotisserie chicken sandwich with provolone cheese on Ciabiatta bread…or however you spell it.  So, that’s it so far.  Oh, and coffee and DDP.  No water consumption yet, but it’s in the plans.  I hate drinking water.  Yeah, I thought I would just go ahead and throw that out there for ya.  I have some Crystal Light that I’m going to mix in just so I can drink more of it.  I don’t know about you, but usually, after drinking it with the Crystal Light I can go to just plain better.  The CL just seems to get too sweet after a time.

Okay, time for me to get back to the laundry before BG wakes up from her nap.

I love CL, but I always dilute them the double as suggested on the package… to sweet for me on the original recipe.

I love the workout of dancing around with your kid. So cute 🙂

Food Log …it’s a TOTAL pain in the butt but if you actually commit to it & log everything you put in your mouth & your water intake it makes you think twice about eating. You can use a journal or if you have a smartphone they have all sorts of apps. My fav is Sparkpeople.

Even if you not actively trying to lose weight …keep coming here bc it reminds you of what you want & you’ll eventually get back on the horse.

Water …my friend recently showed me cucumber water. Slice up cucumbers & put it in a pretty glass with ice. YUM! Also, frozen rassberries, cranberries …any fruit. Freeze them & put them in your water. That way when you’re done drinking it you can a sweet little treat for less then 25 calories 🙂
