I'm tired tonight. I went over my dailies yet again. I'm going to have to actively start working on not doing that. I think every time I feel like munching I'm going to do the old drink a big glass of water and see if your still hungry trick. I made a yummy recipe from www.skinnytaste.com for dinner. It was lemon feta chicken with oregano. The whole family loved it and there's a serving all packed up for me to bring for lunch on Friday.
I made it to the gym tonight. I forgot how much I absolutely hate the gym. I just walked on the treadmill for 45 minutes. It's not much but it will have I do. I'd rather walk outside but with tips in the teens/low twenties that's not going to happen. I'm hoping the weather will warm up enough that I can take my son for a walk both days this weekend. Somehow my 3 1/2 year old has decided he still loves to be pushed in the stroller. I'm not going to argue with him some it makes it that much easier for me to get out and exercise
Here it is, the proof that I've been a complete slacker and really haven't paid any attention to my health for at least the last 6 months.
My low was 164.4 on Halloween of 2010. The last time I saw this weight was June 27 of 2010. So it took me 4 months to lose fifteen pounds and 14 months to gain it back. So by that thinking I gained about a pound a month. If I continued on that cycle I would be back at my original starting weight by years end and that is why I needed to stop it before it went way, way too far.
I tracked all my food today, including the chocolate chip cookie I had at work, even though that meant I went over my dailies by 10. I'd really like to be snacking on something now but the only person whose going to lose out from that is me and I really want to fit in my clothes again.
Over the last couple day's I've noticed my blog feed getting busier and busier. Everyone seems to be making a fresh start at this weight loss thing. Apparently I'm not the only one who feels like a big failure but is ready to move forward. Onward and upward...ahem.... I mean downward. I'm starting the new year not anywhere near where I wanted to. My weight has gone up, up, up along with my caloric intake and my activity level has plummeted to nothing. I'll post the damage tomorrow along with a picture of what the scale says. It's not going to be pretty. I've read some of my favorite bloggers talking about kicking 2012's ass and that's just what I plan to do as well. I've got my weight watchers app downloaded to my iphone as well as my imapmyrun app and I'm ready to kick 2012's ass. Who's in?
