Weigh In Day #5 & Monday

Well, I'm not going to complain actually. I'm a pound down, and considering the indulgences this past week, I'm happy with that! Also, when all is said and done, I ended my week over all the POINTS I'm allowed to have, so again, a loss is good!

I am getting nervous though - I only have 4 official weigh ins left until my sister gets here, and we aren't exactly going to be dieting and exercising. She doesn't need to - she's this gorgeous tiny little thing and gaining a few pounds on vacation won't be a big drama because she'll just lose it when she goes home and goes back to eating normally. However I, tend to hold onto weight like winter is setting in and I need to store fat for survival or something, and I really don't want to gain too much weight when she is here, because I still have that damn fire jumping hell run to do in July!
Also, I wanna look cute when we go out together! ;)

I think for this week, I am going to eat my weekly POINTS if it comes up, but I'm not going to "try" to eat more or less or whatever. Also, still need to put a lot more work into balance, being prepared and organized, and on keeping away from the stupid treats. I never used to have these sweet cravings, damnit. ;)

Tuesdays Food

Breakfast/Early Morning: Shake: 2

Morning Tea (cause if you eat scones and drink tea, then it's a tea of some kind): scone w/ jam. (Americans would call it a biscuit, and while I am fine to use their words for things since I do live here, I refuse to call a biscuit a biscuit, when it's clearly a scone. sorry America.) POINTS: 3

Lunch: Toasted sandwich with turkey, avocado and sweet chili sauce. POINTS: 7

Snack: 2 Wasas POINTS: 1

Dinner: Shake. and i finished off the few bites of my daughters steak fajita. POINTS: 3

Chocolate Binge: cadbury creme egg and reeses peanut butter egg. (these weren't at the same time, but good lord.) POINTS: 6

: 35 minutes Jenny. POINTS: 2

*sighs* .. Yeah today wasn't a healthy day at all. I'm not doing very well right now.. there are things going on, reasons and excuses, but they don't matter because when all is said and done, life is always going to have its ups and downs and it's not going to help any to eat cruddy when I'm on a bit of a down trend.
Idk what to say.. just gotta keep on trying.. I have Dorys song in my head right now. "just keep swimmin', just keep swimmin' " .. :)

Daily Points Allowed: 22 + 2 Exercise POINTS = 24
Daily POINTS used: 22/24
Weekly POINTS Used: 0/35
Exercise POINTS Earned: 2
Weekly Exercise: 1 day / 1 day

Mondays Food.

Breakfast: Packet of honey almond flax granola. was in a mad rush.. ate this at work. POINTS: 3.5

Thank god I had these in the house. I love that they are portioned and in their own little packages. Makes it far easier.

Lunch: reduced fat turkey sausage and egg muffin from work. I took out the turkey sausage patty and took off a slice of cheese though. : 5

Snack:  couple of bites of turkey breast. POINTS: 2

Dinner: eggplant rollups with butternut squash, mushroom, red pepper, baby spinach and mozzarella & a salad drizzled with balsamic. oh, also had some sauce on the eggplant rollups. 1/3 of a toasted ciabatta roll.   POINTS:  4

 I messed up my stupid dinner (the cooking, not my points). I was tired and hungry and couldn't be bothered cooking, but knew I had to eat lighter tonight because of the weekend.. so I salted the eggplant, let it sit for 20 minutes blah blah, and then forgot to rinse it and pat it down. The eggplant was disgusting - SO bitter that I couldn't eat it, and I ended up taking out the veggies inside and just eating them, which is why I added the bit of bread to my meal. Ugh.

Snack: 2 Lindor truffles .POINTS:  3

Exercise:  15 minute walk and some ab work. was beyond exhausted. suffice it to say that I have gotten WELL less than my 6 hours a night the last week. :/  POINTS Earned: 1

Daily Points Allowed: 22 + 1 Exercise POINTS = 23
Daily POINTS used: 17.5/23
Unused POINTS to go toward weekly POINTS that I was over: 5.5
Week Ending POINTS: 8.5 OVER total weekly POINTS Allowed.
Exercise POINTS Earned: 1
Weekly Exercise: 5 days / 7 days

Well.. I'm not sure what to think. I'm happy I got the exercise in - even though that last round of exercise was pretty weak.  3 of those exercise sessions were done past midnight.. so honestly, yeah, I'm pretty pleased with myself that I did it at all at this stage. Honestly, I really wouldn't have if it wasn't for this blog, and the promise that i made "out loud" on here that I would sign up for bootcamp the week that I didn't get in 5 days of planned exercise out of 7 days.
As for the food - well we see that it wasn't a great week, but it wasn't as horrendous as it first appears. Most of my food was good ingredients and I ended up only being 8.5 POINTS over for the week. It's interesting.. if I hadn't have drank, I would actually still have been under my weekly points - caramel eggs and fries and all.
The question is - how will weigh in go????

Friday, Saturday, & Sunday


So I went out last night. As you all would know because you see what I eat everyday, I hardly ever go out. Now, the thing is, I did not make the best choices for being on a diet last night. However, there is a big difference between last nights not making the best choices and most of the times I don't make the best choices. Last night I managed to actually find a medium that I was happy with. I didn't just go "screw my diet I'm having whatever I want!!" …but I also didn't freak out about having the absolute best choice and not enjoying my food either. I love appetizers, we know this, but I didn't get one - it really wasn't necessary. There were some menu items that I could have tweaked to be more points friendly, but I wasn't feeling like doing that.. there were also some really unhealthy menu options (i know, what  a shock, right!) that I would have enjoyed but those ones weren't worth quite how bad they were. So I got  a wrap that I knew would be semi bad, and - my big bad choice - the fries with it. I never get the fries. Anyone who knows me, knows this. I get fries from like one place and that is this amazing BBQ place here that has the best fries on this planet. And because I will not not get the fries from this place, I haven't been there in like nearly a year. So last night I stopped and thought about if I thought these fries would be worth breaking my diet, and I decided that they were. And you know what? They were awesome fries. and that was that. I had a very yummy dinner, that was midway between awful diet wise and good diet wise, and I'm owning it and being alright with it. Now, if I ate fries today for no reason, I'd be disappointed in myself - one meal is one meal.. not an excuse for 6 bad meals. If I go out every weekend, well then, I would have to be far more careful.. but I don't, so whatevs. :)
So of course I had a hangover today as well, very little sleep last night and a 9 hour work day to get through. I knew my POINTS would be higher, but I really was careful with the choices I made (mostly). I knew I was going out, so I had an extra omelette muffin prepared and sitting in the fridge, so I could just microwave it in the morning and not have to worry about breakfast, and I felt queasy as hell, so I had a very nutritionally good smoothie - high in cal, but at least it was very good for me - and I had no time for to make food for lunch this morning, and no car to go anywhere for lunch, but I did just go ahead and grab a sandwich rather than try to "make it through" and pick on high fat nuts or have too many lattes or something. Dinner, well, it was Easter today and I wasn't able to go to our familys Easter lunch because I was working, but my mother in law sent some stuff home,and yeah I ate it.. I was ravenous and hangovery and it was Easter.. life is life. I didn't eat much though, so again, I'm not going to beat myself up over it. And Easter being .. well.. Easter, the holiday of chocolate, I had two of my favorite Easter eggs - because there was a new flavor damnit! lol! And they were really good. and I didn't eat anymore chocolate.
 Is it possible that I won't lose this week, or not lose as much? Yes, it is. But that's alright too.

However, I will eat try to eat as lightly as I can tomorrow - I'd prefer to try to rectify the whole 14 POINTS over that I currently am, but that may not be realistic.. but if I can end the week not quite as high over my POINTS, I will be more pleased.

Oh, and also, I have this thing where at the end of my night if Im super drunk, I always pick at something, so I saved half of my wrap in case I did get that urge to snack at like 4am - and I did. But at least I didn't have any extra than what I'd already "counted".  This is a good thing.

Basically, I don't want food and dieting to control my life, but there are many things that I do need to change about my food and diet so that I can be healthier and therefore happier in myself and in my life… I actually do feel like last night was more of a step in the right direction.

Or maybe I'm still drunk. It's Sunday morning now and I'm slamming an Emergen-C and trying to decide if I'll sober up at work.

Well, the blog really worked for me tonight. Went into work to get my paycheck and got asked to work (I wasn't scheduled). Seeing as how my sister is coming to visit me in a month, and it'll be the first time I've seen her in a couple of years, the extra money appealed to me, so of course I decided to work… which meant that I couldn't work out.. but if I didn't work out I'd have to do boot camp…so I worked out after midnight.

Weigh In Day #4

I feel very disheartened today. Weight was down - by .2 of a pound. :/  For all you kilogram people out there, this is like 100 grams.
I KNOW that it doesn't mean I didn't lose weight, and maybe I'm losing inches, and I know I feel better, and I know my clothes are fitting way better - the ones that even fit - and I know that I could have just had too much sodium yesterday, and not enough sleep, and that it could be a mini plateau, and that I could eat a little more, and that next week it will mostly likely be down again.. but.. still…

Ok so I wrote that ^^^^^ this morning.

Having thought on all this, I'm going to try to eat more and see what happens. I honestly don't feel like I'll gain any weight if I use my weekly points - I just don't use them so that I can lose faster. However, something aint right here, and there is the possibility that im not fueling my metabolism well enough.. I have had sort of haphazard eating lately. Breakfast and then nothing but a coffee till like 4pm, then having random stuff because I feel guilty eating "lunch" that close to dinner, or filling up POINTS with lattes or something sweet.. Also, I was loosely trying to eat under my points, which yes, I said I shouldn't, but it doesn't change the fact that no matter how much I know about myself and nutrition rules, my head can't let go of the "if i eat less points, ill lose more weight!" mentality.
So my goal of attempting to not eat weekly points is gone for this week. I'll eat more regularly, rather than have long periods of nothing, and I'll stay within my weekly allotted points. Also, of course, exercise five times, and aim for as natural and healthy ingredients as possible.
If my weight isn't down next week, then.. well I guess I'll try not to eat weekly points OR exercise points. To be honest though, that's going to be REALLY hard, so I don't even want to try that one yet! ;)

: English muffin w/ ham, tomato, cheese, salt and oregano. POINTS: 2.5

This is a take on something I love - multigrain toast, with thick slices of sharp cheddar, topped with sliced tomato and tiny bits of ham, then thrown under the broiler. However, the points for THAT, are much much higher.

Snack: Mocha. POINTS: 1

Lunch: Toasted multigrain ciabatta roll w/ ham, sundried tomato pesto, black olives,   roasted red pepper, and mozzarella. POINTS: 6.5

Snack: Honey Almond Flax granola. POINTS: 3.5

Snack: Chili Lime Almonds. POINTS: 1

Dinner: Penne w/ Matriciana sauce, parmesan & asagio, chili and (homemade) ciabatta garlic bread. Romaine salad dressed with olive oil and balsamic. POINTS: 13

I was damn close to embracing life as a jolly fat person tonight and giving up on the dieting altogether, so while this is "bad", it's not as bad as it may seem.

Dessert: Other half of lemon bar. POINTS: 3

Anyone Have a "Healthy" Lemon Bar Recipe?

Yeah, so I tried a lemon bar today, and I realized that I'm going to need to find a lower cal (preferably not all chemical) recipe so that I can just make it myself and not only have a sliver when I do crave it because everything at my work is soo ridiculous in points.
Other than that, the day was alright .. sorta meh. I was pretty queasy, but not awful until right around bedtime.. on that note, I ended up with my head hanging over the toilet bowl (I didnt end up being sick though) and I still didn't succumb and have like toast or something to try to settle my stomach. I figured if I was actually getting stomach flu or something, I'd find out soon enough and that for the moment id just try to wait it out and see how I went.. and this morning I feel a bit icky but certainly not stomach flu-ey, so yay! :)

Warning: Alcohol, Cussing, & Complaining Are The Theme Of The Day.

So some of you may or may not have noticed that I've been a little busier this past week or so. It was because I was stressed and nervous as hell about a job interview I had coming up. Earlier this week, I went to the first interview, which I got through, and then Friday I had the second interview. I was VERY excited about this job and thought I'd crushed the interviews. Well turns out I didn't crush them at all. Just found out today that I was passed over for even a third interview, let alone the damn job. Needless to say, after I found out yesterday, I was pretty upset. First I considered wine. Then wine and nachos. Then wine and wine. Then I tried to be optimistic but I just cried my eyes out instead. I felt dejected, rejected, insecure, and like a failure AND a loser. In the end, after crying a whole lot and hating myself a whole lot more, I decided to do the one thing that I CAN freaking control, and which might actually make me feel better through the whole release of endorphins and stuff. Exercise.
So at 11pm, I drag myself away from my one person pity party and put my gym clothes on, and head over to the gym, raccoon eyes and all. (Side note: I NEVER go anywhere without makeup on. Ever. Even to the mailbox.)
And wtf happens when I get there? My goddamn effing keycard wont work. Something is wrong with the lock on the door, and I can't get in to work out. It's 11:30 by the time this is all said and done, and I loudly proclaim this day to go fuck itself and tell my husband I need a drink.
Which is when he turns around and tells me that the bottle shops here close at 11. Which is where I then turn around and tell this day to get fucked again, and that I want to go home where we are all lushes and the bottle shops would never think of closing before midnight on a Saturday night.
What I wanted to do was just relax. I wanted to curl up with my family and watch a movie and eat pizza and just chill out, or have a few glasses of wine with my husband and let alcohol make all the noise and sadness go away for a little while, and deal with my emotions fresh the next day.
So yeah, I had two beers and a glass of red wine. Those of you that know me know that I really must have been feeling like crap, because i hate beer and red wine with a passion.
I stayed up till 4:30am talking to my husband and looking at random amusing pictures and videos online because, you know, everyone feels better after a glass of wine and watching a penguin get tickled. If you don't, then you have no soul.

Thankfully - I feel WAY better today. I didn't get the job, but its not a huge deal, there will be more opportunities and jobs in my life, and maybe that just wasn't right for me now, or maybe I really wasn't right for them right now. Either way it is what it is and no amount of feeling crappy is actually going to change what happened, it's only going to prolong negative feelings, and I am all about letting go of negativity and focusing on the good these days.

So here's the good.

I love the people I work with. I truly truly enjoy everyone at my work, and I was actually sad to think of leaving them. They're a unique quirky bunch and I love that about them.

I'm healthy-ish and getting healthier. I feel really good most days, and haven't been actually sick in a long time. I have more energy, better moods, better skin, nice hair, and I can only see that getting better in the future.

I'm doing very well in school. This means a lot to me. I've always felt really pathetic about not finishing university, and to start back when I was 27 and be getting straight A's is very personally rewarding for me.

I have wonderful friends. Over the last few years since the move here, I've lost a lot of my friends, but the ones who remain, and the new friends I have made, are really just awesome people. They have put up with my complaining and inconsistencies and always still been there for me, even if I haven't seen them in years or months. They still keep me in the loop and leave me sweet messages, and I know if I rang them up in tears, they would listen even if we haven't spoken in forever.

I have a fantastic husband. Really. The amount of support I get from my husband is wonderful. It doesn't matter what I'm doing, or how often I change my mind about it, or how much I repeat myself or how inconsequential what I'm talking about is, he always listens. My husband listens to me talk about other peoples problems, my own problems, my hair, my weight, my diet, my school, my rants and fits and anything else I happen to blather on about. He always tells me how amazing I am, how beautiful I am, how intelligent I am, and he truly seems to think that I am one of the most awesome people on the planet, second only to himself. (He's an arrogant one, my Lion. ;) )

And lastly, I have an exceptional child. My daughter is intelligent, astute, has an amazing memory, is the most diplomatic child in the world, is supremely sarcastic, and is quirky and weird and has a very single minded determination that is going to take her far in life. I won't even bother writing more about her. Like most mothers, I believe my child to be one of the most amazing things in the existence of the galaxy, and could probably write a novel about how awesome she is. :)
