should i weigh or should i wait

Tuesday, June 17, 2014

I was feeling ok today, but things havent been that great, I cracked the acrylic on my tanning bed, which I have only had 3 months to the day today.
It is going to cost nearly 300 to replace and I just do not have it right now.
I suppose I could risk using it with the crack, but I dont feel safe doing that.
I was feeling good just before getting in.
Now I just feel like a fat failure.

I had planned to weigh in tomorrow. After reading a Spark article warning about too much weighing, I am undecided.
After the 5 pound loss last week, I just do not want to face disappointment.
I am considering waiting another week and give myself time to really work alot harder.

I skipped my walk regretfully and got to hankering to be on the track later in the day, but by then it was just wayyyyy too hot.
So, I did some dumbbell weights, squats and walked up and down my porch steps, there are 6 steps and pretty steep.

As for my calories, today I really had to tweak things.
Started out good, cottage cheese, fruit and coffee.
Then I made myself a protein shake, with skim milk and added some strawberries and a tbsp of peanut butter.
But I became hungry so I fixed myself a sandwich out of whole wheat rounds and turkey breast. Had some grapes on the side and a marble cheese stick. A small box of raisins.
You think that sounds like alot of food?????
I didnt.

But when I tracked it, I was slowly approaching my limit.
So, I had to change my dinner plans.
I ended up eating a can of white chunk chicken, some spinach, mushrooms and chicken broth.
And 3 cups of milk for the whole day.
And I still went over my calorie limit by 130 calories.
But I am not hungry.
Just feeling disappointed, the food I ate earlier in the day took up most of my calories and left me with a smaller dinner.
I guess I could have done without the raisins and cheese.
I am still down on my vitamin d, iron, and fiber.
It is a job everyday to stay within calorie range and find healthy foods to eat.
But like I say everyday, I am figuring it all out.
Finding what works for me and I am hoping what I have done this week will pay off.
19 Days til vacation and I feel the pressure closing in on me.
To get enough exercise and eat healthy.
But also getting packing planned out, I am a LIST girl.
Every item I pack has to be written down and then crossed off as its packed.
We are staying in a suite with a kitchen, so I am planning out meals that are affordable for 4 and what a child will eat and also, not to go way overboard on calories and junk.
I wont even lie, I have already packed a bottle of rum and pina colada mixer!!!
I can smell the coconut and feel the salty breeze off the water!!!
I am not going to sugar coat this either, I plan to have one really OUT THERE meal, some place I never get to go and enjoy something new.
I will try to be good and not over do it, but there is a Starbucks, Dunkin Donuts, and a Cold Stone Creamery, so I cant make promises. I like my coffees!!!
So, I should be finished planning what to pack and getting everything ready by the time we leave.....
Gotta make a list of all my lists.
I will try harder tomorrow!
