Camping again- Summer!
Tuesday, June 28, 2016
Well unfortunately I havent been able to get over my camping weight from 2 weeks ago. This morning when I weighed I was .3lb below what I was 2 weeks ago. So im losing, but not on schedule like I had wanted. I was doing great all last week. Saturday was a bad day- I had 1 big piece of stuffed pizza and 5 mac n cheese bites for dinner- PLUS probably 2 pitchers of beer total from 5pm to 11pm. Oh and a piece of birthday cake.
My eating has been just OK. I did not track this weekend and I drank too much beer this weekend. Mostly what has been suffering is my workouts! I am not sure what happened, but suddenly I got really lazy and decided to skip a bunch of them. It's tough, especially when my routine is thrown off. Last weekend I was staying at my best friend's house dog sitting so I was out of my element. And there wasnt really any excuse for me to skip my Saturday workout. I took the dog for a 15 minute walk and it was so hot I was sweating after. I had intended to go for a run.
Sunday I was a little hungover after a friend's surprise birthday party. So I took care of the dog and headed back home after that. Husband was feeling frisky so after that I just kind of felt like not being productive lol. So Sunday and Yesterday I was a major slacker. I think my weight fluctuations really played into my mental game.
When I weighed myself Saturday morning I was at my lowest this journey- 242.4 (woo!) and I think that rewarded my brain too much thinking yay I hit my goal, now I dont need to workout. UGH, so stupid I know. Ive been weighing myself every morning. I think it helps keep me on track- for now anyway. I need to really make sure that if i do see a great number one morning, it doesnt mean that it will stay that way until my actual weigh in day- Thursday.
This weekend will not be friendly for me. I made our meal list for camping, and I really should be ashamed. Brats, pizza dip, cinnamon rolls, smores mix, hot dogs, toasted meatball subs. Any quick healthy camping meal ideas? Im burnt out on kebabs. And I dont like turkey anything- brats, hot dogs etc.
I will really need to watch my portions this weekend. Already I feel like that's too much food! Really- I don't deserve it. I dont deserve to indulge and throw my healthy lifestyle out the window for a holiday weekend camping... Okay yeah, you convinced me that I need to rethink my menu. Turkey pepperoni I can maybe do. We grocery shop tonight, so i have a project to do today- healthier menu.
I shouldnt drink as much as I did last camping trip. When it's just Josh and I we mostly read, play games etc- not a ton of drinking. Just casual, maybe at night. I think i'll get some diet sodas, maybe a dryer wine or 2 and some light beer. Maybe light powerade too.
Ive been doing pretty good at work and during the day for- no, I take that back, I've been killing it the past 2 weeks. The one time I went over it was for said friend's birthday and she brought in some killer cupcakes, so i had two. Crash and Burn right!? I've been trying to stay away from sugar as much as possible too- I know that's a terrible hindrance for my weight loss.
Except the pop tart I had this morning. We REALLY need to go grocery shopping lol. Here's my menu for today!
Bfast: Pop Tart + 1c strawberries + Snack: 1sv. peanuts (409 calories)
Lunch: Tuna sammich w/ amer chz (390 calories)
Dinner: andoullie sausage with skillet potatos (590 calories)
Exercise: Running Interval training after work- hope to burn 300-400 cals
Today's gonna be a good day! Not too salty either- thats been a BIG issue for bloating and water retention. I did meet my 100oz challenge a week or so ago. I think it helped, I always get cold when I drink a ton of water too so i was freezing that day. OOOO- they took away our ice machine downstairs where I work! So now I either drink luke-cold water or go all the way up to the cafeteria- GD DAMMIT!! we were all so mad.
Summer is here and I am loving it! I cant believe it's 4th of july weekend already!!
