No doctor today because I'm actually feeling a little better. I think whatever was plugged in my ear has unplugged because it feels pretty good today. Thanks goodness!! I'm still a little plugged in my nose, but I think I'm on the mend.

This has been a harder week with my eating. I think the first week I was really thinking about the diet and what I can and can't have, then this week I have my foods ready and haven't had to put much thought into getting lunch and snacks ready, but I find myself wanting to grab a chocolate or a donut from the kitchen, I haven't but I've thought about it. I've thought about how good a donut would be and I can't have one, so that makes me want one even more. I haven't given in and I'm not going to, but this feeling crumby and being on a diet has been tough! Ultimately though I think I'm learning something. I know that just because I don't feel good doesn't give me an excuse to eat junk, and I've struggled with that for years.

This weekend is supposed to be rainy, so we'll see if I finally get my garden planted. My hubby, who never helps with the planting, says "It doesn't take that long and it's not that hard anyway. You can probably do it in the rain." Did he ever get a look for that comment! Hopefully I'll be able to get my poor little seeds and plants in the ground so I can have some fresh veggies this summer.

I hope everyone has a great Friday and a great weekend!!

It's the kids last day of school today. Man did the school year fly! We car pooled with a couple of other kids and one of the mom's is taking all the kids out for lunch and ice cream after school since they get out at 11:30. I was going to take my kids out to lunch, but this will actually work better anyway since I'm on the new diet. I could eat a salad if we went out, but this way I just don't have to worry about it and I know they'll have fun anyway.

I'm still not feeling very well and tomorrow I may call the doctor. My ear is getting really sore, so I'm afraid I'm getting another ear infection. This junk can go away any time now.

Tonight my son has a baseball game, and it's actually going to be a sunny day, so hopefully it won't be a bad evening to watch the game. Baseball on Tuesdays and Thursdayswill be the only thing we have going on now for the next few weeks, besides my daughter going to DC from the 1st thru the 4th. It will be nice to have bit of a slow down. Now if I can get to feeling better so I can get some workouts in it will be perfect. :)

I hope everyone has a great Thursday!

20 May 2015

Last night was a hard night for me with my eating. I really wanted to eat junk food, but I knew I couldn't. It was a struggle, but I told myself not to undo this diet, that I am about a week and a half in and I can't give up, and I succeeded. Today is going to be the same with cravings and I know it's because I'm not feeling well. Whenever I don't feel well I eat junk, or comfort foods, because I just don't care. Now is a real test because I can't eat that stuff on this diet, so I just have to struggle through and make good choices. I'm still working on keeping my calories under control and I'm really hoping that by this weekend this cold is done and that will help with craving junk.

Other than just not feeling good right now, I don't have much new going on. I hope everyone is having a great week!

I am still plugged today and now my throat and ears are starting to ache and my neck hurts. I'm over this cold already. I didn't end up doing a workout last night because I started really not feeling well and I ended up working late. Today will be a busy day after work and I really don't fell well, so no workout again. Then the next 2 days as soon as I get off work I'm rushing to meetings or games, so Friday will probably be the next workout possibility. I really hope I'm feeling better by then. If I could wake my butt up early I could get it done, but not with this cold.

I'm doing okay eating strictly what's on my diet, but having a hard time staying within my calories. I think this weekend some more planning and tweaking will be needed. I need to get more protein, fewer carbs, and hopefully fewer calories. I have been eating more fruits and veggies though, so that's a good thing I guess. My stomach has been feeling pretty good too so far. So, I guess I should just be happy that the pain isn't so bad and I'm eating some healthy foods and quit whining. Once I get some exercise going I'm really going to kick butt. :)

It's going to be a cold, rainy day today, and I hate to say it, but I hope they cancel my son's game tonight so I don't have to sit out there for 2 hours in the cold and wet when I'm feeling like crud. The bad thing is that this is actually one of his only early games, so it stinks to miss it.

Well, I'm going to go attempt to be productive today. I hope everyone has a great day!! I'm going to dream I'm at the beach.

I'm down a pound so that's good, but this week will be harder trying to keep my eating in line. I'm used to eating low calorie bread and doing the gluten free bread and foods is not low calorie. Hopefully I'll be able to figure out how to keep things in line though. I made myself some gluten free bread and it's way better than the store bought, but high calorie for 1 piece, I just have to learn to take my breads in moderation. Saturday we went to a graduation reception and all of the food smelled and looked amazing, but I didn't eat any of it. I didn't even eat the snack I had packed for myself, so I did good. One week down and five to go then I'll be able to start adding foods back in.

My hubby started getting sick on Thursday and now I've got his darn cold. I'm going to be a mouth breather for a while. Luckily, for right now that's really the only thing going on, other than just being tired. Hopefully it doesn't go past a plugged nose. How my nose can be plugged, yet running like a faucet, I'll never know.

I got a workout in yesterday and was hoping to do a run today, but I don't know if I can breathe to do it. We'll see how I'm feeling when I get home, maybe at least a walk. I think if I can get exercise in while on this new diet I may actually finally break through this rut I've been in and lose. I suppose even a little bit of exercise is better than none, so I need to work at it.

I hope everyone has a great Monday!!
