The week of dieting

Well, this week has had some ups and downs. I was doing real good initially counting my calories and skipping the evening snacks. It was hard though. I didn't like it. But I did it. Until Wednesday evening. I hadn't started supper and I was getting to the point where I was starving and gulping my food down to feel satisfied. Which I didn't feel at all! All I wanted to do was eat! And the dinner I had planned - was blah to me. Spaghetti. I really don't care for spaghetti. It's usually not too bad once I start eating it, but I didn't want it. So - since my husband was equally stressed out from the week - we went to Burger King. Totally not on the menu - but we were short on time and stressed out. So we did what habit has told us to do. And that night, I had ice cream. Another fail.

Thursday wasn't much better - although I knew it would end with a very rich birthday dessert when we had company over. I was doing okay with eating at lunch - stopping when I was full, even though there was more food to eat. But then before dinner, I thawed some pumpkin cookies. And I ate most of them. I was - again - very stressed by getting the house ready for guests. And I did have that extremely rich dessert - and ate beyond full. Why do I do this?!?!?

But yah know what? Today I'm totally back on track! Although I haven't counted my calories - I will though. My friend left three brownies - and I haven't touched them at all!!! Shocking even to myself! I went to the local cider mill because we needed bread for lunch, and I did buy a half gallon of cider(for my husband) and a half dozen cookies - again, not for me - and then 1 donut for my son. And with all these treats, I had 1 bite of the donut. But I didn't touch the cookies or the cider. Cider doesn't appeal to me. It's good - but I just don't care if I drink any of it. I'm weird.

Okay - my calories are a bit high - but it could be worse!!! Thier about 900 calories. And that's nto counting the bites of bannana I had... Not sure how much that was.

But, I did get to the gym today and burned 1100 calories in my Total Body class. It was a hard class today! And, when I look over the course of the week - I've made it to the gym 4 days - 5 times if you count Monday when I went twice. So Over all, I think I'm doing good. We'll just see if the scale agrees with me. I need to go easy this weekend. I'll be at a Woman's Expo, working a booth, and I can only imagine the tempting food that will be there. I'll have to bring snacks. But otherwise, I have dinner at the inlaws on Saturday - so that will prevent us from eating out. Eating in is always better than eating out.

Well, I'll keep you posted on the scale!

  1. Good job getting back on track today. I've had a rough week eating, for some reason I was a bottomless pit in the begining of the week and even though I got back on track Wednesday & Thursday I am struggling today (I always use the weekend as an excuse to relax my calorie counting) So to see you doing good on a Friday makes me want to stick within my calories too! Thanks ;)
