Day 146 Repent and Rejoice

Good Wednesday night by bloggy peeps. I have been off the blog map for the last couple of days. I had two finals I was trying to make sure I passed, so I was concentrating real hard on getting that taken care of. The one thing I learned is that sleep deprivation can lead to some bad decisions. Monday was not too awful bad, I was good the majority of the day, but when I got home from my final, I had my supper plus I ate some Doritos and some meatloaf. all in all, I wound up around 1800 calories, but that was not to the level that I was worried about. However, I went on a caffeine bender yesterday as I was up late Monday night too studying then got up early too. I was ok for most of the day once again, but once the caffeine wore off, and I found myself at the Girl Scout meeting last night, I was tempted by all the cookies and candies that were there for the party. I came in with having eaten around 800 calories and left with an estimated 1600! I still had my supper but I at least did eat light portions and had about 200 calories worth of meatloaf and green beans. I guess I should feel like a loser, but I don't. I just learned a whole other lesson to add to my new experiences. Be extra on guard if I am sleep deprived too!!

The good news is I am done with the two hardest finals I have, the next one I got some studying in for tonight and I don't foresee it being as stressful as those two were! And I had a great diet and exercise day! I got my weight workout in this morning, got my Wal Mart 2 1/1 miles in before work and then another 2 1/2 at lunch, I am now sitting at 1480 calories for the day and I am done! I got a lot of fruit in today too. Kathy bought me some green apples while at the store and I had an orange and a banana as well. Oh and for supper we had 15 bean soup and it was delish!!! So I am pretty excited about my rededication. I am now focusing on getting out of the 220's for my next weigh in. I don't know that I can after the two days of poor choices, but I will try like hell I promise you that! I am thinking a little extra exercise and a little determination on the diet will get me far this time!

Sure is good to blog again, it sure is something you miss when you ain't doing it!

  4. ahh yes, I remember those college days and dreaded finals. I lived in a dorm and we would buy a pack of cigarettes and smoke them as we studied- that's the only time I really ever smoked! I haven't been in the posting mood myself and I get you on letting your guard down.

  5. During college I used to say I had a long-distance love affair with my bed. But being young and active it didn't affect me adversely. Now, oh boy, I know what you mean about sleep deprivation and bad choices.
    Good to see you back. Good luck on the exam. And good choices!
