Ok, so I am in the Kitchen on Monday evening preparing my food and my boyfriend comes into the kitchen and we are talking about stuff and then he says oh and I bought myself a treat today and pulls this gynormous box of Dad's Chocolate Chip cookies out of the cupboard.  He knows full well that I just started trying to get back on track that very day and that cookies and milk is one of my favourite things in the world.  I was sooooooooooo pissed at him.  I never would have known those cookies were even there if he had not so proudly displayed them to me.  Of course ever since I can think of nothing but cookies.  So I have been following the plan entirely, EXCEPT for the 6 cookies and milk I have had Monday night and Tuesday night before bed. :)  Tuesday morning my weight was at 170.2 pounds and this morning it was 169.4 so the weight on the scale is down 1.4 pounds and I only have 2 more pounds to lose to get to my original starting weight.  I am not going to beat myself up about the cookies and milk because I have been working out every day this week and working out isn't part of the plan.

I'm Back

Well I am back.  Holidays are over, move is done. No more eating out and I am now organized so I can start over.  The scale said 170.8 this morning which is 10.8 pounds heavier then I was on July 29th and the heaviest I have ever been in my life.  I am back on the plan and we even started a workout group at work and today was our first day.  We did P90X arms and shoulders workout and tomorrow we are going to be doing the Insanity workout plyometrics.  I am hoping this is going to help me stay motivated to workout. It is nice to be able to leave my desk in the middle of the day and go workout for an hour.

The day sure went by quickly having that much less time working because I don't usually leave my desk at all.  I also am now parking further away from work so I have to walk twice as far as I did before.  I am also back eating the same as I was eating before holidays and the move. I will keep you posted, I am looking very forward to watching the scale go down again instead of up.

Holidays, Day 1

I started holidays today, that is pretty exciting.  The scale said 160.0 this morning so I am down a total of 7.4lbs in 10 days, that's pretty good. It's my cheat day coming up tomorrow and I know better than to go to the store and get some cheat food today, because if I do that I will eat it today.  It is going to be a busy weekend because we are doing the final clean up, packing and moving to our new place. I have to get off my butt soon and get cracking on some packing and wall washing.

It's Thursday, which is my Friday

The scale said 161.0 this morning which is up 0.4 from yesterday, not too big of a deal considering I am menstral. YEAH!!! Which would explain why I have been so pissed off at my boyfriend lately.  But really we are trying to get out of our place to move into the new one by Aug 1. Our landlord said he is ok if we are there a bit of extra time as long as the basement is empty when he get's there on the 31st.  So where do you logically start?  Well my head says the basement but his head says I am going to spend two days mowing the lawn, two days hauling wood to my Buddy's house and then since I start holidays on Friday I am going to spend the day cutting wood at my Buddy's place so he will come and help me move four things later that day.  I am pretty sure the whole purpose of the hauling wood thing was to drink beer and I don't understand why he gave all the damn wood to his buddy anyway, what about when we want to light our fire pit at the pasture? Well no worries, cause I got the whole damn basement done by myself. ARGH!! Whatever, I still have four days to get the entire main floor done and cleaned, I think I will make it on time.

End of Week One

Well today marks the end of week one and I weighed in at 160.8 pounds this morning.  Total loss for week one was 6.6 pounds, that my friends is not too shabby.  The food is very boring I think I am going to look into some recipe ideas and every single food commercial I see on TV makes me think Gee, I am going to have some of that on my cheat day.  I may be up to 8000 calories by the time I get to cheat day but it is nice to see that the two pounds that I gained last cheat day were gone within a couple days and I didn't have five or more days on the diet before my cheat day like I was supposed to so I am super excited to see how next week goes.  I am pretty impressed with myself for how well I have been able to stick with this considering the amount of work I have been doing to get ready for the move.  Yea, I have had a couple of cupcakes and a few beer, but for the majority of the time I have been very good.

No Change

Well there was no change on the scale today, still 162.6 pounds.  I did have two cupcakes yesterday, some carrots and baby corn in my stir fry as well as some soy sauce.  All of those things are no-nos so no shocker there. I didn't go up though so that's a good thing.  Two more days of work after today, I'm so excited.  Stay tuned to see what the scale says tomorrow morning.  I am hoping the cupcakes are gone by the time I get home from work so I don't have to worry about them.

Yuck Monday

Well it's Monday today back to work!  Down to 162.6lbs today so that's good news.  I also only have three more days of work after today before I am on holidays for two weeks so that's pretty awesome!  I did get a root canal today which wasn't too much fun but at least my tooth won't be bothering me anymore.  I am making really good process on the basement and should be completely done by Wednesday. Only seven more days until we move. I am having a little bit of an issue with the fact that there are cupcakes in the house.  I had two yesterday and one today but I am still losing so that is good. The cupcakes are here because it was my daughter's birthday yesterday but they should be gone soon so that will make things easier. I don't have much else to report, I am super tired from all of the cleaning, painting, sanding, packing and moving stuff all weekend.
