Day 134 Hot 100 Update, Ruminations About My Thanksgiving Goal

Howdy folks, I am getting around to posting much earlier than usual. Kathy took her mom out to do some shopping. When she gets back, I suspect we will be leaving for Texas shortly after that. So I thought I would get this in now.

For my Hot 100 update, I would say score! Even with Thanksgiving factored in, I am on goal all the way around. No white bread, even when faced with the yeast rolls I love so much. A ton of veggies and even more fruit here lately. I have walked the 5 miles I planned on every day I have been off work and school. Aaaaaand I think that with my plan to counteract going over my calories on Thanksgiving, I will see a good loss come December 3rd!

I am not mad at myself over my going 500 over on calories yesterday. I wish I had kept myself in the confines, but on the other hand, I did go over deliberately, not mindlessly. And had I not gotten into the sweets, I was actually good I think. But I don't generally get sweet stuff and it all looked so good. I may be rationalizing, but you know, I KNOW by experience that one day off doesn't affect me really. I have had a couple of melt downs and never faltered getting back on plan. I can't see one good reason to be downtrodden. IN fact, I am excited. I love a good challenge, and now I am going to be working extra hard for Friday's weigh in to be a success! I did learn something today that has me thinking of changing up my workouts. I moved the treadmill into our spare room where I work out. If I am going to keep getting up at 4 or 4:30, then I am fixing to add some walking on the treadmill before I leave for work and still at Wal Mart when I drop off Lauren. I spend about an hour just farting around on the computer every morning while I drink coffee and I think that time could be better spent walking before my weight workout. I got a 5 mile walk in on it this morning, and it was great because I set it at one speed and don't slow down ever, no matter how tired I am. I liked it this morning! I knocked off 6 minutes because I had the treadle going the same speed and would not turn it down, unlike when I get tired and slow down without noticing. I can just see it now folks, 210 on December 31st!!

  3. Wow Shane, you make me tired! Here I have been sitting at the computer but I don't like to walk my dog before daylight- REALLY! I am not a bread eater and can still say not a piece of bread since the end of August and truthfully, the mashed potatoes I ate satisfied my cravings. I'm trying to think of menus now- I really need to plan the next two weeks out. You will continue to do awesome- that I know.
