Okay, let's review

McDonald's sausage McMuffin with egg, hashbrowns and oj for breakfast.
No water all day.
2 cookies, small piece of chicken, scoop of rice, scoop of corn, and a Drumstick for lunch.
A very large beer and half a small one. Some pretzels.
Hamburger steak, rice, and salad for dinner.
I feel like hell. I'm a little bloated (too much rice) and I need to go to bed (beer). Enough with this garbage.

I'm officially on break - WOO HOOO - and here is how tomorrow is going to go.
Up around 6am - feed the birds, coffee.
Breakfast around 7 - cereal and milk.
Walk to workout at 8, workout from 8:30 to 9:30, walk home.
Eat well all day and lose this feeling of fat.
Get my grading done so it's history and watch some soaps.

I need to get rid of this feeling and back to the way I was feeling at the beginning of the week. I will and it starts tomorrow.

So running......

I'm going to start on Sunday.  I was going to start on Saturday but that's my strength day.  Sunday it definitely is.  Even if I have to get up and run before we walk the dogs.  I will start running on Sunday.  I'm searching all theweb directories I can find to locate a good training plan. If I do an 8 week - 5k plan I could do a race in November and there is a 5k right near my house.  Sweet!!! I will do it.  5k in 8 weeks and in 14 weeks a  10k.  I can totally do this.  Totally. Okay, I'm excited.  Then next year it's back to triathlons. Awesome!!!

I was going to workout, really I was....

This evening is just so beautiful though. I ended up sitting out back with Hubby and the dogs watching the full moon rise. I totally lost track of time and missed my class. Oh well. I didn't sleep well last night so I'm tired so I guess it's okay I missed tonight. And the moon is just gorgeous.... We were watching it come up and I swear you can see the craters on it. You don't need binoculars or anything. It is so big and so close, it's awesome.

And again this morning...

I step on the scale and it says 177.2. OMG!!! That is so awesome. It looks like I won't be looking for any fat burners that work, I seem to have found something that works.

This is the last week before a 2-week break at school. I need this break in so many ways. I am making plans for the break though since I do not want to just lie around the house. I'm going to paint and decorate 2 rooms, finish the bathroom, train the dog, start running again....yes, you read right, start running again. In the past 6 weeks I've lost 10 lbs and I told myself if I got to 175 I would start running again. Well, at this rate I'll be there by the weekend so I'm making plans to run. I figure I'll run in the mornings and go workout at night. I decided to take this week a little easy and only workout on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday. It was really hard not to go tonight. Really. Hard. I felt good and could have used a good workout but I keep my word and stayed home and got some things done. I'm proud of myself. I think I will start really slow with the running and I think I will get new shoes. Yikes...Running again....

Is this thing working???

I stepped on it yesterday and it said 181.6. I stepped on it this morning and it said 181.6. Then it said 180.5. Then it said 178.4. Ummm....hello....178?!?!?!? I haven't seen that number in easily a year. Awesome. I did step on and off it a number of time and kept getting 178 so I'm sticking with it. That means I have lost 10 lbs in 6 weeks. Not earth shattering by any means, definitely not as quick as quick diet pills, but better than I've been doing. I feel great. Funny how the working out seems to regulate the appetite. I get hungry but I stop eating when I get full. I don't like to eat until I'm stuffed = like I used to. That is a very cool side benefit. One thing I do have to watch is the tendency to cut back on the calories too far. I will do that. I start to lose weight and I want to lose more so I will unconsciously cut back on the calories until I'm weak, and cranky. Have to watch that I don't do that.

From one extreme to the other

I was overdoing it lately and decided to lay off a little. I didn't work out Thursday, Friday or yesterday. In fact, I was completely exhausted until today. I napped and slept and ate for the last 3 days. Yesterday was all about brownies, M&Ms and take out. Not a good reaction to rest. I was afraid of what the fallout from eating like that would be. I was afraid I would spend today looking for the best fat burning supplement but, in a shocking turn of events - the scale says the same thing it said Thursday morning. Yeah!!! I did not gain 400 lbs. So I get one more day of rest and then I have to work out tomorrow.

I am thinking I have to revamp my workouts. Every night is really, really hard even though I love how it makes me feel. Also, I feel so out of control when I'm tired like that. Out of control of work, out of control of finances, out of control of everything. Having a little time to myself and time to get things done really helps me maintain control.

I'm off, looking for some balance.

Completely out of control

What is it with me and free time? I had last week off and things literally spiralled completely out of control. I've lost track of the...
