It seems that the closer I get to holiday the more likely I am to forget to post. At any rate things have been pretty quiet lately, had another snow day yesterday and didn't do diddly squat with my day. I did go to the dojo and get a workout in before I leave. Today I spent the whole day at practicum, with the exception of my 8 am psychopharm hurt my brain class. Went to Buffalo Wild Wings for a fundraiser for my student social work group and had a very healthy salad and mango lemonade (nummy!). Don't know if I will be able to regularly post once I am at ECCC, depends on how gosh darn tired and pooped I am at the end of the day. Since I am not really sure what the heck I am going to be doing at the con, I have no idea how busy I will be or anything. We shall see.

Diet day 5

Ugh. Woke up this morning with a sore throat, cough and producing green colored sputum. Yay. So the diet today has been pretty easy, I haven't felt like eating much of anything. I had strawberry pop tarts this morning for breakfast, nursed a Mountain Dew throughout most of the day and ate celery with peanut butter and apple slices and water for dinner. I also snacked on some chex mix and ate a granola bar. Hopefully I will better tomorrow, I can't afford to be sick, miss any work, school, training or practicum.

Got home late last night from work and was exhausted so I didn't post. Today's entry is on yesterday and today.

Yesterday was a bust food wise. It started out good, I hate a muffin called Morning Glory that had carrots, raisins and apples in it along with a bottle of water for breakfast. Lunch was the same as Thursday, Einstein Brothers whole wheat bagel with turkey, lettuce, tomato, spicy mustard and mayonnaise along with a small cup of potato salad and a medium Mr. Pibb. Dinner was a bust though and ruined the whole day as the family I work with went to Pizza Hut for dinner. I had a small salad with Italian dressing and two slices of cheese pizza with a Mountain Dew. The extra soda was needed to have enough energy to work with my kids at the YMCA and go swimming 10.

Today was much better. Got up and sweated my way through a morning workout at the dojo. Came home and ate a light lunch of apple slices, celery with peanut butter and water. Dinner was a spinach salad with tomatoes, feta cheese and balsamic vinagerette dressing. I went grocery shopping and successfully resisted the urge to buy my soda. I had one Mountain Dew today which is remarkable considering how much homework I had to do and that I am still very tired from my long day. Tomorrow is Sunday and I still have a little bit of homework and some housework to do but hopefully will get in some relaxation time.

Diet Day 2

Due to having to be an hours drive away at a god awful early time this morning and knowing I would have a 2 and 1/2 hour drive after I got done with training at 4 in the afternoon followed by a late evening working meant I did not get up and run this morning and won't get up and run tomorrow either. I swear I will Saturday...maybe. *sigh*

Diet going okay. Today I hate 1 Krispy Kreme doughnut because the trainers bought doughnuts for V-day (which I LOATHE) but I washed it down with a bottle of water so sorta healthy. For lunch I went to Einsteins Brothers and had a turkey sandwich on a whole wheat bagel with lettuce, tomato, spicy mustard and mayonnaise with a small cup of potato salad and a Mr. Pibb. For dinner I had to eat on the run so I really didn't have dinner. I ate a snack of carrots, sliced apples, a cheese slice and unsalted almonds washed down with a Mountain Dew (I needed the caffeine to stay awake till I got home). I was gone from 7 am till 8:30 pm. LONG DAY. Tomorrow will be another long day, training from 830 to 400 pm and then work from 5 to about 10 I wager. Ugh. I can't wait for the weekend.

So yea...I need to go on a diet. And since I have tried it and can't seem to stay on it by myself I have decided that in order to hold myself accountable and ask for help with dieting, I am going to blog daily on my eating habits and exercising.

I have never dieted before, I have never had a reason to. But over last summer I gained 45 pounds in 3 months. I was able to drop 20 of it in the fall last year but I have hit a wall so to speak on the losing weight front. I am not at 165 and really want to get back down to 140. So I need to lose another 25 pounds and keep it off. So I know that means seriously rearranging the way I eat and exercise. I need to get my lazy ass out of bed in the morning and go running. And I HATE HATE HATE running. But working out at my dojo is to hit or miss with my current crazy schedule. The only thing I can rely on is that I can make time in the morning to go run. And I will start tomorrow morning. I have no idea how far I will be running but I figured I will start with 30 minutes and go from there.

As far as the diet goes, I am going to cut out any liquids but water and one soda a day. Only because right now I can't handle the headaches that go with cutting out caffeine, I have too many migraines that happen on a regular basis to begin with. But I can cut it down to one a day and change to diet soda. I will also cut out all junk food and fast food. Any other suggestions?? I know that eating more salads, vegetables and fruit is good but other than that I am not really up on all the things I should cut out to increase my chances of losing weight.

I will also being going to Seattle at the end of this month to volunteer for Emerald City Comic Con and will be staying at my sisters. The hard part will be not using my vacation as an excuse to stop blogging, running or dieting. There is no reason why I can't run, my sister lives in a safe, suburban neighborhood. And I will have to chance to hit up a grocery store for healthy snacks and food to eat at the convention. So any thoughts on ways to avoid slacking would be helpful too.
