Well frustration has kicked in again. I went to the doctor and he says I am healthy with no problems, well except for out of wack hormones that I have had since having a baby.

I try to exercise regularly and to stay active. Yesterday I worked all morning standing at my desk, poured 9 yards of concrete in the afternoon, swam during and impromptu pool party (heated the pool to 85 degrees), and then after everyone left I did 65 fast laps (40'/lap). I only got out because a bat decided he wanted to join me.

I admit that yesterday my eating slipped and I overdid it, but since I had stomach and bad pain because of gas this morning I believe I was punished enough. With that said, I have been very good about staying 75% vegetarian, cutting back on fat, not stuffing myself at meals, and watching my portion size for the past week and that is not easy when you travel for work a few random days every week.

My travel is going to start slowing down, but not go away entirely and with school, ballet, and bowling starting it is going to get even more hectic. And due to my daughter's ballet class, I am going to lose my live zumba class on Thursday nights. I am going to try and convince the teacher we need a class on Wednesdays or try to find another one. I enjoy the live classes, but I can still motivate myself to exercise at home so it won't be that big of deal to lose the class. I just feel bad for my friend because she won't be making my $8.00 and I won't get to see the friends I have made.

I guess I have come to the conclusion, I am healthy, 95% of the time I eat right, I limit my pop (so far have only had 1 in 3 days), exercise regularly, stay active, so maybe I am just destine to be fat. I just wish I was only 20 pounds fat instead of 50 like when I was younger.

I have tried limiting myself to 1200 calories and exercising hard for 30-60 mins 5 to 6 days a week. I have tried 1500 calories and exercising hard for 30-60 mins 5 to 6 days a week. I added running this summer and ran 2 5K's, I have tried no exercise and a rigid calorie count. The scale stays at the 185. I have only lost 5 pounds this year and feel like a total failure. This is one time in my life I would have been proud to say I was a loser.

It has been a very exhausting week for me, but I HAVE SURVIVED! I didn't get a chance to try my eating experiment, but did manage to stay on track and not OVEREAT!. With that said, I was doing great with 75% veggies until yesterday. I ate nothing but crap with no schedule. However, I didn't overeat. My daughter thought that was a win and gave me a pat on the back!. I have not gained a pound or lost all week and I haven't been journaling, so that is a win too!

I did pick up some zucchini, yellow squash, and a spaghetti squash from my SIL to eat this week, so that will help. Does anyone have a good spaghetti squash recipe. I have never cooked one before.

Well onward with the days activities: I am finally going to get my upstairs cleaned! Exercise as my back is so tight from traveling I can't touch my toes. I want to zumba and my daughter wants to do Jillian Michaels yoga so we are going to do both. Then tonight out on the boat with family, my BIL, SIL, and nephew are going to go too so my daughter and I will have to find some extra worms.

Hope everyone has a wonderful weekend!
