I was so stressed out today that I didn't even think about calories. I was just trying to get through the day, and I ate whatever was quick and ready. Still, I recorded all of it, because I want to hold myself accountable. I haven't been exercising outside of work because my job is so physically demanding. I sweat literally all day. Lately, I've been extremely tired and sore after work. I clean houses. Usually, I have 3 houses to clean a day. I have a partner who I supervise. She started cleaning with me about two months ago. I was working with a woman for a year who turned out to be my best friend. We worked so well together. It was effortless. They promoted me to team leader, which meant that I had to work with a new cleaning partner. To be honest, she's horrible. She makes so many mistakes. She breaks things, and she's slow. So, now I find myself cleaning 75% of the houses so that we will get out on time. I then have to check her work. I find myself sweating heavily at every house. When I get off, all I want is a shower and my bed. Plus, I live in an apartment on the third floor. Sometimes climbing those stairs after work is just brutal. Anyway, I ate fast food today, but hopefully the calories I burned during my 6 hours of cleaning today will make a difference. Tomorrow is a new day. Today, I'm just accountable for what I did wrong.

Hello all! I'm going to give this another shot. I am so tired of struggling with my weight. I need to conquer this once and for all. I did well on Fat Secret in the past, which is why I'm back. I need to lose about 80 pounds. I don't care how fast or slow it comes off. I just need it gone. My boyfriend and I took a Mother's Day trip to visit family. There were a lot of pictures taken. Those pictures were posted on FB, and of course I was tagged... my double chin, chubby cheeks, and flabby arms stole the show. I'm just sick of it. I haven't been exercising because I took a house cleaning job over a year ago, and I dropped about 25 pounds within about 3 months. The job is exhausting, so all I want to do when I get home is take a shower and eat. Because I was losing weight without trying, I ate whatever I wanted, and convinced myself that my job was enough exercise. Of course the weight loss plateaued. So, I've been stuck at about 230 pounds for months. I still have a lot of work to do. My plan is to take a 3 mile walk 3 times a week after work or on the weekends. I will cut out a lot of the sugar and carbs, and start packing a lunch more often instead of eating out. So, here we go again. I have faith.

Day 2! I'm still here! Consistency is my issue, so one day at a time, one step at a time, just keep going... This is how I have to think all the time, every day. Today, Chris and I walked to the store to turn in our redbox movies... really just to exercise because we passed several red boxes on the way. It was nice and cool out which made it more enjoyable than the walks we took during the summer. They were brutal. It was easy going because it was mostly downhill, but you know what that means... coming home kind of kicked my butt (up a steep hill), but I was a trooper. Chris asked me if I wanted to take a short cut toward the end and I refused. I actually look forward to the feeling of pride when I complete a workout. The worst part is that I live on the 3rd floor, and we were entering from the back of the building, which means we started at the garden level... 5 flights of stairs. That sucks after walking mostly uphill for an hour. Anyway, it's done and I'm happy.
So far, I've have my frosted mini spooners and coffee. Time to start my day and be productive.
A little note about yesterday, my first day back... I think I did okay except for the 3 Apple Ales I had lol (oops) but that almost never happens. They were delicious but that won't become a habit.

I hope everyone has a great day. I want to read all the journals and news, but no time now. Hopefully when things slow down for me, I can check in with everyone.:)
