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!!

    Turkey pepperoni is awesome! I almost prefer it over regular! Definitely give it a try! Also, Costco (and I am sure other stores as well) are carrying some great chicken sausages in several different flavors and I LOVE them! A few weeks ago we BBQ'd one of the spicy ones, put it on a grilled bun and added ketchup and that canned cheese dip that you get on the chip isle. It sounds weird, but it was pretty tasty and it wasn't too bad calorie wise if I recall correctly. Anyway. Just an idea.
    Have fun camping!! Sounds like so much fun!

    Take away an ice machine in the summer?! What kinda BS Is that?!?!?!

    I have never been camping so I don't personally have any recommendations but I know pinterest is probably a treasure trove of ideas! You're really selling this camping idea to this city girl though!
