Temptation is hitting me pretty hard right now.
I have not been doing as well as I would have liked, but I am also not doing terribly either.
I guess that is a good place to be?
I’m getting there.
Slowly, painfully, getting there.
You’d think after how easy it was to get started that this wouldn’t be an issue for me.
I have no idea how I got so off track. I keep saying stress and everything else, but is that really it? Or am I just being lazy?
I have no idea.
I am waiting to eat lunch. We got up late and Dustin had to do something at 12:30. We figured we’d just wait until he was done with that to get some food in our bellies. He should be done within the next hour.
…I’m so hungry!
I am determined to do things right today. I have said this in the past and failed, but I really want it. I want it today. I want to get through one day to prove to myself that I can still get back on track.
I have something that I am looking forward to next year. Once it is official then I think I will be in power lose weight & tone mode so that I am exactly as I want to be by then; but I’ll dish out more deets in the distant future😉 .
But yes. I need one good day. One exceptional day, actually.
We spent a long time yesterday figuring out which crock pot recipes we were going to start making. We picked out five and sorted out all of the ingredients & expense that it was going to cost us. We are desperately trying to save up some money. We typically spend around $100.00 when we shop for the week; sometimes as low as $60.00. Last night we only spent $120.00 and each of the crock pot meals are enough for at least 2 meals. So we are actually saving a butt load of money. Also, $40.00 of that $120.00 went towards getting spices/seasonings that we won’t have to buy again for a pretty long time. I’m impressed and excited. It’ll be nice to get rid of our frozen dinners and start making our own food. I’ll probably feel better & more satisfied for about the same amount of calories. The only thing that I am concerned with is the amount of protein that I will be consuming. I have been planning out my food diary and I am already well over my protein limits that myfitnesspal gives me; however, when I did some research I found that people said that going over protein is fine and that myfitnesspal actually underestimates the amount of protein. So I think that I will be fine…especially if I stay within my calorie limits and start exercising again.
I am going to try to get some water in me and then watch tv while on the elliptical until Dustin is down with what he had to do. Then I can eat!! I am going to try to snap some pictures of my crock pot experiences and provide the recipes & nutritional information in case anyone is interested!!
