August 31 (last day of the month)

Today was day 7 of the workout.  I really was wanting to skip it, make excuses and go to bed.  But I pushed through and pushed my self and am so glad I did.  I feel amazing.  I finished strong, pushed myself and feel great!  I was a little weak with the push ups but once I got going I really got going.  Even being the first day of my cycle I feel better.

Breakfast ~ English muffin
Snack ~ pack of organic apples, bag of smart food popcorn
Lunch ~ Half an order of ceaser salad
Dinner ~ baked chicken, noodles, and corn
Water ~ no idea :(.

But I feel great so there is no beating this feeling.  I am sure my better food day helped and being day 7. Three more days and then I start level 2.

August 30

Breakfast ~ English Muffin with butter, water to drink
Lunch ~ Special K cereal with banana, water to drink
Dinner ~ Blueberry Bagel with Cream Cheese, water to drink
Snack ~ Heath Bar and Snapple Green Tea
Total was probably about 1000 calories.  I could feel that I didn't have enough fuel for my workout.  I need to eat better and not so small of meals.
Workout was great.  I didn't want to do it.  I am feeling really sluggish as AF shows her face but I am pushing through and hopefully going to break through this plateau.

August 29

Brunch Half of a three egg omlete with bacon, cheese and mushrooms.
Dinner was half of a hot dog, half of a baked potatoe and green beans.
Cake for desert and a Dr Pepper.
Workout tonight was great!  I finished strong even the jump rope at the end no marching.  I did almost the whole first set of push ups without a break.  I am seeing a difference.  Not much of a weight loss but I did lose an inch around my belly button.  Gotta go with what you can :).
Feeling good leaving day 5.  Just have to keep pushing and I will get there.  No more breaks.

August 28

Breakfast half a blueberry bagel with cream cheese
Lunch half an order of Fetticine Alfredo from Olive Garden, one bread stick and some salad.  Peach Iced tea to drink.
Dinner homemade chili with corn bread and water to drink.
Over all a decent eating day.  I didn't over eat.  I still need to work on water.

Today was day 4 of the workout.  I really wish I would have worked out Tuesday it would be day 6 :).  Its all good though.  I will push through this.  I am super tired.  Next week will be better.

August 27th

Breakfast grilled bagel with cream cheese, 12oz skinny white chocolate mocha no whip (big improvement for me).
Lunch 2 crab legs, 2 cut pieces of cooked carrots
Dinner Taco Bell taco supreme, few bites of a burrito supreme and one piece of a personal cheese pizza.  Some Dr. Pepper :(.  And I was doing so good.
Best guess on calories was about 1,130.  I need to bring it up some so I don't go into starvation mode I think.

Workout did day 3 of my 30 day shred 27 more to go.  Felt good.  Leg is still bothering me but I push through and finish strong.  Feeling good.  Now if I could get a good nights sleep I would be golden.  Also cleaned the kids rooms, put away laundry and cleaned their bathroom (scrub down).  It was a productive day overall.

Need to work on drinking more water.  Only had about 4-6 glasses of water today.  That is not enough to keep me hydrated.

August 26th

Breakfast 8 oz shake
Snack carrot sticks and string cheese (doing good)
Lunch PBJ and sun chips (not great)
Dinner Olive Garden (need I say more?)
Probably about 2500 calories today :(.
In my defense it is our 10 year anniversary and I deserve to celebrate that :).  I am going to work out about 9pm again tonight.  I will update my ticker after I do.  I have had no soda in two days wohoo!

Did my workout.  I really enjoy the 30 Day Shred.

August 25th

Breakfast had an 8oz shake and a white chocolate mocha.
Lunch was a bean burrito no onions, no red sauce, add sour cream and a water.
Dinner was two baked chicken tenders a few bites of mashed potatoes no veggies :( another bottle of water.
I did not drink enough water today.  I need to work on that.  I did not get my work out in yesterday.  I am starting the 30 day shred tonight.  I can do anything for 30 days.  And its only 22 mins so that is doable.  I am going to do it every night.  The end date will be September 23rd.  Now we all know :).

August 24

So today I was up at 630am.  Had a bacon, egg and cheese mcgriddle at about 8am.  Drove to Portland, took my mom to the dr finished about 11.  Went back to Vancouver grabbed some ice, small bag of chips, heath bar, cherry coke and some spree for my and other junk for the kids.  Headed back home by 1145.  Ugh not a fun 4 hour drive let me tell you.  Got home had some left over chinese and now am working up the energy to get my workout in.  I hate feeling sluggish but that long of a drive in the middle of the day takes it out of ya.  I am sure I will sleep better if I do it though.  I always do.  And I get to get up at 530am instead of 5 am tomorrow yippee!  Ok so enough for today off to go workout.  Just a short one, then motrin, ice and sleep.  Hope everyone is doing better than me.

August 23

Did the 30 day shred with my sister.  Wow that will kick your butt :).  In a good way.  The only bummer is the aggravation to my leg from doing the jumping jacks and jump rope, etc.  I should have tracked what I ate better.  I am not totally sure what I had LOL.  I think I had a mocha at some point, some bites of pancakes, and some chinese for dinner.  Dang I suck :(.  Ok so at least I got my work out in and probably didn't go over on calories :).

August 22

So I walked 1 mile with my sister, pushing Jeremy in a not so great jogging stroller.  He is about 38 pounds :).  It wasn't very long but I felt like it was a good workout.  There were hills and flats so there were challenges.  I am not used to walking while pushing something.

Food for the day:
12oz white mocha
Special K with bananas
Burgerville chicken strips and fries (yes way terrible for me)
Oven baked chicken, pasta salad, baked beans and corn on the cob for dinner.  All home made.

Not the best day of eating but not as terrible as it could be since we are not at home.  We drove 4 hours to visit family for a couple days.  That always throws off my eating some since I am not at home to cook.

Weight August 22

My weight this morning was 164.6 so down a 1.4 pounds from last night.  Just proof you shouldn't weigh at night.  Although 164 isn't great.

New Before Pictures

Well since I am almost back where I started in April I am going to start over.  I will "zero" everything out and just keep plugging along.  My stats are: waist 40.50 (actually down .5), Hips 43 (up), Thighs 25 (up), and weight is 166 as of 8:50pm.  I will weight again in the morning to check.  Then its go mama go.  From the pictures I am bigger than I was on my last picture but not as bad as my first set of pictures.  But I knew after my workout tonight that I had lost some muscle.

WOW a month already

My great intentions a month ago went down the toilet.  Why can't I stay motivated?  Just think how far I would be if I hadn't gotten derailed.  Gosh even going back to May when I got the most derailed and never recovered.  What am I doing?  How do I get back on track?  I hate feeling like this....

Saturday August 20th

Breakfast 1 egg over medium with ketchup, bacon, and sourdough toast.
Lunch hotdog and a few tater tots.
Dinner steak, green beans and homemade mac and cheese.
To drink I mostly drank Iced Tea all day.  I need to switch back to water.

Worked out for 25 mins with my Start It Up! video.  Man I only did 17 push ups instead of 20 and struggled through the ab section.  But I finished and know how far I have fallen.  I am going to take a picture in a few and post that with my measurements and weight.  I know weighing at night is terrible but I gotta start somewhere.  I will probably weight in the morning too to get a more accurate one.

New diet

So I am researching a new diet. It might be a fad but I am going to check it out. I think it might help us eat more clean. We shall see how it goes.
I am thinking I need to set some goals and write them here. Not just to work out each week but weight goals and inches and such. I think I am letting myself make excuses to keep me from keeping going. I need to find some motivation.
