Ughh Weigh In

Weigh in this week summed up in one word: Boooooooo

I know why the scale showed this, it most likely had to do with 3 too many pumpkin spice lattes, a fast food lunch, a night out with the girls and various other things that I justified by saying " hey it's TOM, the scales going to be bad anyway....why not enjoy myself" So enjoy I did and now I'm looking at a 1.4lb gain as a result.

I'm trying to get myself back on track but the fall is tough for me. I love to bake and it's apple season so my daughter and I have been doing alot of afterschool baking AND fall in New England is Fair Season which means plenty of opportunity to gorge myself on corn dogs, fried dough and various other things. We're going to the Big E on Monday which is this huuuuge fair about 45 minutes north of me featuring all kinds of unhealthy diet busting food including...... The Craz-E Burger - a bacon cheeseburger sandwiched between a grilled Krispy Kreme donut. 1500 calories and who knows how much fat. Gross, needless to say I will not be partaking in that. Luckily I have both my husband and 2 kids coming with me to the fair, so most of the things we buy to eat we share.
I hope everyone has a good weekend. I'm going to try to get back on track this weekend and show up with a good loss next week. I'd like to see 165 point something so I hit a new low. I know I can do it.


Weigh In

I wish todays weigh-in had been a little better but I can't complain as I know I've been slacking with the exercise the past few weeks. It was still a loss, not a huge one but they all add up right?

Another .6 lbs down. Still working on reaching my just plain overweight and no longer obese goal. I'll reach that at 163.6 so thats what, 2.6 lbs to go? I can do that. I hope to see that next week as this weigh-in was week. If I can get myself back on track I can do that.

In other news I dropped off a ton of clothes at a local consignment shop yesterday since they no longer fit. I figured I could use the credit I get from whatever sells to buy some new to me winter clothes that actually fit.

I have a night out with some friends tonight and I honestly don't plan on being too mindful of what I eat tonight but am making the effort to keep things light during the day today.

Fall has finally arrived in New England and I am absolutely loving it. The cooler weather is beautiful. I love being able to sleep with the window open and my comforter on :)

I'm walking in a 2 mile walk with both my little ones for the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation on Sunday on a team from my mothers work on Sunday. Looking forward to it, besides the walk itself they're having all kinds of events going on (face painting, meet and greet with Uconn Mens Basketball Team) so it should be a fun morning. If anyones interesting in sponsoring me you can do so here.

I hope everyone has an awesome weekend!!


Weekly Weigh In

Well here it is.......

Wooo hooo a loss!!!! This is a new low for me. I can't remember how long its been since I weighed 166. I'm getting sooooo close to no longer being obese. Just a few pounds to go!!!!


Ok so maybe I lied.....

But this time I'm really back. Since the last time I blogged I've gotten back on track with the eating (for the most part) and with exercise (though not as much as I'd like to be) and for my weigh-in tomorrow I expect I may just see a new low based on my peeking through the week.
As for what else has been going on....

I went out shopping today, mostly for stuff for my son's birthday party, but I did take a little time to do some clothes trying on and buying for me. I have a new NSV!! I went into NY and Co where in the past I've bought most of my pants for work etc. and I officially fit into a 12 there. When I started this blog I was wearing a 16 and they weren't anywhere close to loose. So that was an awesome ego boost.
My daughter started kindergarten last week and my son turned two this week, I feel like my babies are all growing up too fast.

I started school last week also and my online class is alot more difficult than I was expecting.
