legcramps - Monday Dec 28, 2009

Weight: 0.0

I ate more than I wanted to over the Christmas holidays.  Today i'm hoping to get back on track with my water intake, and see how things go from there.  I was feeling good before the holidays hit, and I want to feel that way again!  Right now I just feel full, and I haven't eaten anything since yesterday!

Hope you all are having a wonderful holiday season!

I made ten resolutions for the next year.  I won't share all ten with you, but i'd like to tell you what my Top 3 are:

1) Health - Lose 20 pounds.

2) Finance - Pay down personal loan.

3) Travel - Once a month.

I want to write them down so that next year I can look back and summarize what I managed to accomplish and what I did not manage to accomplish.

I'm such an anal planner that i've written down all my resolutions on a week-by-week rundown for the next calendar year.  I think it's going to be another busy year... hopefully a lot happier than this one has been though!

What are your resolutions?

panda22 on 12/28/2009:
Hey there! Your resolutions sound great! Especially the travel one =) I wish I could do that! We travel a few times a month, but it's usually only a 3 hour drive to home lol. I would love to travel to other places though! Maybe when my son gets older! My resolutions are :: 1) Lose about 35 pounds at a rate of 1 pound per week by next year. 2) Stop and look at the big picture instead of stressing out over small things. 3) Keep my house more organized!

That's about it =) Have a great day! Sounds like you are getting right back on track!!

It started to snow yesterday morning, and seems to have continued on through the night and into this morning.  There are a few inches of snow on the ground already and it doesn't seem to be letting up much.  I do hope it won't be storming like this when I drive up north tomorrow.  I'd rather not have to use 4x4.  I AM a city girl.

1,200 calories yesterday.  Much better!  I'm hoping to have the same type of day today so that it will make it easier for me during Christmas by giving me a tad bit of leeway, maybe a pound or two grace period, you know?  I feel pretty good today, always happy to see the lower caloric intakes and the lower weights on the scale!  Lots of water is in the cards for today.

I still have many things to do in order to prepare for Christmas.  I have some last minute shopping to do, some laundry, some packing, get gas, get water, drop my dog off at the sitter's, have lunch with a friend, send out some Christmas wishes on facebook before I leave... i'm sure the list goes on, but i've gotten sudden brain-freeze and have stopped thinking.  It must be a sub-conscious coping strategy!

No one called again for Wallyball yesterday.  I feel a little left out!  You'd think I was a spoiled popular kid.

you too? happy holidays!! xo


panda22 on 12/23/2009:
Great job keeping your calories in range! Sounds like you are doing well =). Hope you have a nice Christmas and get all that you need to get done finished!

Monday - 2,300 calories.  Doing good, aren't I?!  Not.

Went to see some Christmas lights last night with a few friends.  It was nice, though hardly any of the pictures taken with my camera worked out very well.  Or maybe it's just that I saw myself bloated and fat in the pictures.  Blah.  I just look terrible, plain and simple.

In two more days i'm heading to my aunt and uncle's to spend Christmas with them this year.  It will mean good, healthy food since all the women are on Weight Watchers.  Yay!  Until then though, I need to work on my eating.

Today's plan:

Large mocha, pork chop and rice for lunch, banana, pork chop and rice for supper.  Lots of water.

Run up and down stairs; do laundry; finish up homemade gifts.  Run up and down stairs.  Run up and down stairs.  Repeat.

I managed to make it to badminton last night.  I'm glad, as otherwise I would have done absolutely nothing.  Sad, huh?!

It was fun, and i'm quite sore today.  I have the day off work today, so that's good - won't have to sit at my desk stretching my muscles all day because they hurt.

Calories yesterday were 1,100.  Not the best, but it sort of makes up for Wednesday's calories which were around 2,600!

Have to get ready for Christmas today... so much to do.

Playing wallyball is like playing volleyball, except off the walls of a squash or racketball court.  Much more fast-paced.

I became sick last night with my period; SO exciting.  Not.  Struggled through the early morning once I had taken some advil and had the heating pad going.  I found it incredibly difficult to fall back to sleep for the hour and a half I had left until the alarm went off, and then even more incredibly difficult to get out of bed once I did fall asleep.

Was sick this morning before getting dressed for work, but came anyways.  I had meetings almost all day today, that's sort of my excuse.  Anyways, I just got back into the office and am leaving for home in about ten minutes.  I missed my lunch break totally because one meeting ran into the next, so i'm starving.

Oh yeah, and I ate some snacks at work yesterday afternoon, then a nice heavy meal for dinner.  I haven't added up the calories yet.  I don't know that I want to.

Badminton tonight at 7:30pm, but not so sure I wouldn't rather pass out on the couch instead.

Yesterday ended up around 1,700 calories.  I had sushi for dinner, so that added a few more calories than I would have liked, but I very much enjoyed myself so doesn't that make up for it?!!

I ended up not going to Wallyball last night, as no one phoned to say they needed an extra player.  I was a bit disappointed, but eventually they will ask, and then they won't be able to get rid of me!  So, no exercise yesterday due to the cold weather.  It is supposed to warm up a bit today - wouldn't it be nice to be able to go for a walk longer than 5 minutes and not get frost-bite?  My dog would enjoy that immensely.

I will be watching a movie with friends tonight.

I know it's unusual for me, so keep it on the DL, but i'm feeling sort of... happy... today.  Don't jinx it!

MoodyMe on 12/16/2009:
What is Wallyball? Got me curious!!

Have fun tonight with your friends!

Another sad and premature death.  I don't know what it is, but it's been a long year for everyone around these parts.  I think it must be agonizing for families to have to cope with loss like this.  Unimaginable.

I was cooped up in the house last night, napping and reading and generally doing the absolute least that was required of me.  Tonight is supposed to be wallyball, so I am hoping for an invite to that so I can vent the frustrations of life for a couple of hours.  With the inactivity I found it hard to fall asleep, and even more difficult to get out of bed this morning.

I did really well yesterday with my eating, counting at around 1,600 calories for the day.  Also had a great water-intake day.  Good all around.  I hope today will be the same, to begin to make up for Sunday when I decided to try and eat my way through the entire house.

Just sad today and i'm finding it hard to believe there is a grander scheme to life when all the good ones have to leave so soon.

I was a little bummed this weekend because of the weather, not that I would have taken advantage if it would have been warmer out.  This cold weather really sucks the energy out of me though. 

I went for sushi on Friday evening with some friends, then for coffee, then home.  I walked to all places, which I have to say is not that large of a feat considering they were all within three blocks of my house.  It's nice to have a sushi place within walking distance.  I need to remember to be grateful for these things more often.

I slept in on Saturday, did ALL of my laundry, which had amounted to a lot because i've been quite lazy in that regard lately.  Washed dishes, cooked some food.  I only stepped outside to let the dog out.

Sunday I spent watching movies on tv, eating too much, and painting.  I will never get these paintings done in time.  That's okay, my brother will understand.  I think i've only once been on time when sending gifts to his family.  Usually I am a week (sometimes even months) late.  I was even brave enough yesterday to watch a scary movie all on my own.  It wasn't so bad.  No nightmares, either, although I stayed up too late reading so there really wasn't much time for REM sleep.  Is that when we dream?  During REM sleep?  Anyways.

I'm sure i've said this before, and then when it happens I complain anyways, but i'd really like for life to slow down a bit so that I can get more done.  Why is it that there is always something to be done?  Why can't there be nothing to be done, for once?

ColorMeBlue on 12/14/2009:
Oh I so envy you in having a sushi place within walking distance!! I love sushi. Wait, maybe that is a good thing. I would be there all the time. I am with you. Wish things would slow down to a better pace. Seems like there is never enough time and when a block of time comes up I end up wasting it. Have a wonderful day!

So I checked some things out yesterday after work; places I could go for recreational activities.  I heard there was drop-in badminton in town on Thursday nights for two hours, so i'm going to try that out next week if I can find someone to go with.  I was going to go last night, but had a memorial service to attend and it was too late to go by the time it was over.

As well, I e-mailed a friend of mine that I used to play wallyball with, and he's gotten me back on the team (at least for most of the weeks).  This will require some travel, but i'm okay with it.  This is on Tuesday nights for two hours.

There.  I guess it wasn't as hard to get back into it as I thought it might be.  So at least I have SOMEthing I can do for two nights a week.  That's a start, as compared to what I am doing now!  I also know that these two activities will give me a good beating!  Something I am most deserving of!

I'd like to go out tonight, but am thinking it might be better for me to stay at home.  Stay out of trouble and all that.
