My last weekend

of freedom. School starts on Monday and I'm really not looking forward to it. And while I have been enjoying my last few days of freedom, I'm starting to get that blobby feeling. I've been running but not much else. I've been eating okay, but too much I'm sure. I haven't done any other kind of workout in weeks now. And I'm starting to feel like a giant blob. I have the energy just not the motivation. So school starts on Monday and I plan on starting a workout routine today. I'm going to continue my running and add strength training in to the mix. I just need to do it because I feel so soft and squishy. I ran yesterday, so today I strength train. I'm going to start slowly and aim for consistency.

I watched the Extreme Makeover: Weight Loss Edition the other day and it kind of hit home with me. This woman was almost 500 lbs. She had 2 kids (I think) and a husband who had a stroke and couldn't use the left side of his body. She had to work,…

The last days of summer

I've been rather enjoying them. Working on some stuff, taking naps, etc. It's been nice and relaxing. Monday it's back to school again - ugh!!! At least we don't have students until Thursday, that's good.

Food has been continuing to go pretty good. I haven't been diligent about logging every bite but I definitely see patterns. I have found that if I don't eat any junk food during the day I feel really good. I don't get exhausted or sluggish - well, except during nap time :) But seriously, I feel pretty darn good most days. I have been having dessert at night and while I don't feel any reaction to it because I'm asleep, I kind of don't think it's a good idea to eat it every night. But I do :(

Working out has not been as good as I'd like it to be. I haven't run in 3 days - but I am going to this morning. I haven't done any kind of strength training like I've wanted to. I'm just not up for beating myself u…

Food Update

It's only been a couple of days but I just want to record the things I've noticed so I don't forget or lose track of it.

On Saturday we went out to lunch and had beer, flatbread and hummus. I felt pretty good after but did have a little bit of gas all afternoon. For dinner we had teri meat, fish, noodles, salad with oriental dressing and some milk. After this I felt a little bloated and the gas was still there. But it wasn't bad at all. I did have dessert on Saturday night.

Sunday we had breakfast at home; eggs, hashbrowns, sausage; and felt pretty good after that. In the afternoon we went to a BBQ and I had 4 beers, some pupus, 2 pulled pork sandwiches. Then around 8 pm we went to Zippys and I had 2 pieces of fried chicken, mashed potatoes, and corn. Was full after but not bad. Oh yeah, I also had a lemon bar.

Yesterday, Monday, I was hanging a little bit from the beer on Sunday. We went out to breakfast and had kim chee fried rice with eggs and pancakes.…
