 This has not been a good eating week. But I am happy. And this week I will be back on track. Family is gone, Jason will be traveling, so it will be yoga and eating in and my goal is to lose 3 lbs next week. If it's just two that's fine too. :)

*** UPDATE: major fail! I didn't make it to yoga and ate a huge dinner! :( I will definitely go tomorrow and have a light eating day. Sigh.



 Okay, small set back. 3 lbs up after family visit. I even had donuts when they were here, so I cant whine. I am going right back to it and this should be solved in a week :)

Date last night was wonderful. He brought me flowers and we just went to dinner at a simple place, no fuzz. Food was awesome too. We agreed on not seeing other people while we figure this out. I am not big on sharing when it comes to dating, and I was a little nervous about bringing this up because it's only the 3rd date. But we have been moving kinda fast and i dont see why not. He agreed, thank God! Hahaha

Flowers! Husband brought me flowers on our fist date - 3 red roses to be exact. I had a red dress on (he didn't know I was going to wear red) and he had a red tie on and it wasn't Valentine's Day! I am not concerned about you because you have a level head and you said you are going to "figure it out". You'll know what's what soon.

 Sister and family are back home now. Their visit was awesome. I am sure I gained some pounds back, but I will call it a planned minor set back and I can lose them back in a week. I will weight in tomorrow and go from there.

I finished my Bikram Yoga challenge on Sunday and it all went smoothly! I loved it and recommend it! I thought of going to class last night (first day after the challenge) but I was tired and decided I will go tomorrow, thu, sat and sun. 4 times a week from now on!

Tonight I have my 3rd date with the guy, he is taking me out to celebrate the bikram challenge. :) Seems like more than 3 dates, but his traveling and my family in town kept us from seeing each other more. Hopefully now we will be able to before I leave to Brazil on the 18th for a week. 

All is good ladies. And I am back to logging my food.

B: oatmeal and blueberries 200

 Not going to be the best week for eating with family here! But I will pick up right back when they leave on Monday. And I am not being terrible, just eating out too much, which makes it hard to keep track.

 Skipped one day of posting but all is on track.

Just went to my bikram yoga class number 28 for the 30 day challenge!!!

Sister, bro in law and nephews are in town and I am off work. We've been having a great time. Went to the museum yesterday and then the basketball game and they loved it! Now they're shopping while I went to yoga and we are about to go to lunch.

Bikram Yoga Challenge Day 26. 

I stayed on the 950 cals yesterday which I know is not enough and I shouldn't. And today I saw a gain! Hahaha. I am laughing but it's annoying. I think I need to raise my calories, these classes burn at least 500 calories (probably more for me since I am heavier than average) and eating 1000 or 1200 calories is just not enough. I will up my calories to at least 1500 every day.

I have my sister with her husband and 10 year old twin boys arriving today to visit me for 5 days from Brazil. So I think my calories will be up no matter what. Haha.

B: bread 100 with laughing cow wedge 35 - 135

L: coconut water 60, tuna sandwich 400, superfood 190 - 650

Subtotal 785


Definitely upped my calories today. Ouch. Dont wanna see what will happen in the scale tomorrow, but it's my sisters family first night here, i had tacos, chips, half a doughnut... ouch. maybe 1500 cals.

I will be better tomorrow.

Progress as of today: 14.5 lbs lost so far, only 13 lbs to go!

hollybelle on 02/22/2012:
I think this is a good plan. Day 26! Woo-hoo! Only 3 pounds to do until you are in ONE-derland!

Umpqua on 02/22/2012:
I bet upping your calories will move the scale, and I know it's tough to get into that mindset. Congrats - you're almost done with your challenge!!

getmebackto150 on 02/22/2012:
I hope you have a great day, and I agree w/ above, upping your calories will most likely make the scale move in the right direction!

Em17 on 02/22/2012:
Have a great day!

supercheese on 02/23/2012:
when all else fails, I add more food! Isn't it great that you can eat more and lose weight! I think so!

V on 02/23/2012:
I bet you are super excited to see your sis and the rest of the clan <3 have a good evening!!

Stuck at 202lbs. It's okay and it's been a few days so I hope to see a loss in the next day or two.

Bikram yoga challenge day 25! Wow!!!

V asked me if I was going to continue going every day after the challenge is over. I won't, it's too much time and commitment. I will aim for 4 times a week after the challenge. When I can, I will go 5, when I can't I will make sure I don't ever go less than 3. According to my instructors, 3 times is the least we should go to keep the practice and 4 or 5 would be ideal. So this is what I am shooting for. 

Talked to my new guy last night through skype as he is in Long Island for work. I will have family in town this weekend when he gets back (and it's wayyyy too early for him to meet them) but we will go out early next week to celebrate the end of my challenge :).

Bikram yoga 30 day challenge: day 24!   I am getting there! Woohoo! So excited this is going well!

No move on the scale in the past few days, but that's fine. I am sure it's a combo of normalcy (you're not supposed to lose weight everyday haha) with the fact I have been eating out all weekend! Back to eating at home today and hoping to lose another pound by the time my sister and family get here on wed night!
