Thanks for all the well-wishes! I'm feeling a bit better, but not totally back to normal.

Breakfast- small bowl of oatmeal w/brown sugar, pumpkin pie spice and skim milk
Lunch- 2 rolls
Dinner- low fat Campbells soup (It was yucky, I should've got Progresso) 2 rolls & a fat-free pudding cup

I've had only a couple of glasses of water though :( Just doesn't sound good.

Today I ate:

2 pieces of whole wheat toast
2 scrambled eggs
pb & j on whole wheat
granola bar

I don't feel well at all. I think I'm coming down with some sort of tummy sickness. I had to force myself to eat anything today and I only managed to get down 32 oz of liquids. My tummy gets all gurgly when I eat or drink anything and I have tummy pains. It almost feels like I'm really nervous about something, but I don't know what I would be nervous about. I took food to work today, but just gave it away. I hope I feel better in the morning. I work a really long day/night tomorrow. I'm house managing for the Nutcracker matinee and evening performances :(

My Sides are Sore Today

That's all. Just had to whine.

As I said, I'm totally tracking today since I don't wanna fall too far off the wagon. So here are my lunch stats:

2 small tortillas, fresh spinach, cheese and a south-west dressing, topped with a bit of low fat sour cream... it all made a really yummy quesadilla. I also had a baby cucumber and dessert, which was a banana, fat free vanilla pudding and fat free cool whip, all served in a pretty glass dessert dish :)

I did my work-out. I'm happy I got it out of the way today. My tummy is totally bloated from stress though. I couldn't even come close to zipping up the pants I wanted to wear today, and I wear them all the time :(


I am a big-time stress eater. I always have been. Today is a very stressful day for me today. There are issues happening at my children's school where I am the FEC vice president. The FEC is equivalent to the PTA at a public school. I started out my day with an email that really made me frustrated and mad and now I have to go to a school board meeting today, where I will probably break down and cry because I always cry when I'm mad.

I'm going to be really tracking what I eat today, because I really just wanna curl up in my bed all day and eat chocolate. It's a good thing it's my day off, because I don't feel like working :(

Breakfast: 2 pieces of whole wheat toast, 2 eggs, banana

Work-out: I'm going to do 40 minutes right now while I watch Supernatural (Oh Dean! Why can't you come save me and whisk me away in your '67 Impala? LOL)

This morning I had a cup of herbal tea, two pieces of whole wheat toast w/nutella :) and water. For lunch I had a baby cucumber, a baggie of baby carrots, water and a couple of pieces of french bread. I had a granola bar for a snack. For dinner tonight I went to a Relief Society dinner at my church. I had shredded meat (I think it was pork), two rolls, potatoes, green bean casserole and a small piece of chocolate cake. It was really yummy.

And I have to mention this bread I've been buying at Costco. It is so good. It's made here in Utah and it is the best store bought bread I've ever had. It tastes just like homemade. The only ingredients are: 100% stoneground whole wheat flour, water, honey, salt and yeast. And the best part... it's only $5 for 2 2lb loaves. You just don't pay $2.50 for a 2lb loaf of awesome bread these days! It's absolutely fantastic! How lame am I? I'm getting excited about bread...LOL

I did 40 minutes tonight!!! I'm trying to work out all seven days this week :)

We had our box office Christmas party today at work, so I was worried I'd eat a ton of junk, but I didn't do too bad so far today . I made sure to bring a spinach salad along with my brownies so I'd have at least one healthy item at lunch. I even sent the leftover brownies home with a friend so I wouldn't be tempted later. I did save one for each of my kids though :)

two eggs, two pieces whole wheat toast

lots and lots of spinach salad, one small Nutella brownie, two pieces of zucchini bread

45 minutes of abs, arms and cardio while I watched Supernatural (I got season 3 for only $15 on Black Friday)

Who knows... LOL something with turkey burger since that's what I thawed out; I'm off to make dinner right now :)

Monday's Work-Out

60 minutes... mostly abs and arms with a bit of legs and cardio :)

Monday's Measurements

Here are my weekly measurements. The red is the loss from last week. I think I was just randomly fat last week. These are pretty much the same stats from two weeks ago. Weird.

weight: 165
waist: 35 (-1)
hips: 42 1/2 (-1/4)
r thigh: 25 (same)
l thigh: 24 3/4 (same)
r arm: 14 (-1/4)
l arm: 14 1/4 (-1/4)

I need to kick it into a higher gear with my work-outs. I've been so exhausted lately that I haven't been getting the exercise I need, plus it's been so hard to avoid goodies. Tis the season...


I was gonna grab my paper with my measurements on it as I ran out the door so I could post them at work, but I spaced it (along with three other things I was gonna bring to work). I am really excited though... my waist is back down to 35"!!! I must've been all bloated with pie and sweet potatoes last week... LOL

I brought baby cucumbers and carrots to work again to eat at lunch-time so I don't go home starving. It's totally making a difference. I love buying the huge things of veggies at Costco. I hate wasting food which means I eat lots so I don't have to throw them away. Thursday I bought a big thing of baby cucumbers, a 5 lb bag of baby carrots, bananas and a big ol' thing of baby spinach... gotta love the babies :) so my fridge is stocked.

End of the Week Review

Well... I worked out three times this week, (four if I get off my butt tonight) even if it was a short work-out. I did so-so on my eating. Today I had a baked potato with light sour cream and cheddar cheese and a spinach salad with raspberries and cashews. I also had a banana, a baby cucumber and a bit of a Cheerios snack mix. (I fasted until 4pm, which is why there's not a breakfast in there too.) I did have some hot cocoa made with skim milk and I'm planning on making me some herbal tea in a minute too. (My furnace went out yesterday and it's freezing!)

Hopefully I haven't gained again this week. I'm nervous now for my weekly measurements tomorrow morning :(

* Update * I did a 30 minute work-out tonight followed by two minutes of serious stretching. And no tea... I decided I didn't want to drink too much late at night seeing as how the toilet seat is EXTREMELY cold in the night when you don't have a working furnace... I learned that lesson at 4 am this morning ...LOL
