I did not blog yesterday. I fell off the wagon. I weighed myself last night and was back up to 179.6lbs. it made me so upset that I skipped the gym, had dinner, took a sleeping pill and called it a day. I just didn’t want to think about it. Counting calories is driving me insane. I’m stopping for now until I can do it without obsessing over it.
Tonight I went back to the gym, but I’m not going to weigh myself. I don’t want to have another break.
3 weeks I have been taking the GNC Women’s Ultra Mega Energy & Metabolism supplements. It has helped curb my appetite a bit and that is enough for me. Especially at work. I am on day 6, I think, of counting calories and that has been going well. It would go a lot better if I didn’t obsess about it. It’s making me miserable. I can have a cookie, chips, a sandwich or ice cream if I want, as long as I stay within my set calorie limit, but I keep denying myself those things because I feel like it is cheating. Sigh.
I went to the gym tonight and did 45 minutes on the treadmill, burning 314 calories. I weighed myself and am at 178.8. Who would have thunk it? Not overeating, counting calories and going to the gym is helping me lose wight. It’s a miracle!
Feels like I was just submitting an entry. Time goes by so fast. Day 18 of the supplements and day 4 of counting calories. Still doing it. My calorie intake is going to be the same as yesterday because I’m eating the same thing I ate yesterday. No harm in that.
I hit the gym to do 30 minutes on the treadmill and I burned 245 cals. I keep upping the speed and incline. But only if I feel like I can take it. If I start getting too exhausted I will take it down a notch. I don’t want to be miserable.
Weight-wise I am currently at 180.6lbs. Chipping away at it.
I am still worried about tonight because it is my night off. I will be craving cookies like a mad woman. And having cookies would not be so bad if I could eat just one or two. Not twelve.
Wow. I can’t believe I am 17 days in already. Day 3 counting calories. I think I’m getting used to it. I was sick most of the night tho. I think what I chose to eat last night was not sitting well with me. I also have a headache. Grrr…
I kept my cals under 1,200 today. So far under that when I tried to complete my food diary entry for today in My Fitness Pal, I was issued a warning that it was too low. It’s at 996 calories consumed plus I burned 233 cals at the gym. I think there is some fruit in the cabinet that I can eat to bump it up to the limit. I also have Oreos, but unfortunately, they are my enemy now.
I weighed myself and am currently at 181.6lbs. My night off is on Wednesday. I’m worried about it. I am fine controlling my eating while working, but being home all night may cause a problem. I hope not.
16th day of taking the supplements and the 2nd day of counting calories. Today my caloric intake was 1,135 and I burned 219 cals at the gym. I weighed myself and am at 182.0lbs.
I am doing ok fighting off the urge to eat when I’m not really hungry. I hope I can keep this up for the rest of the week. As long as there are no interruptions I will be fine. I just have to stay focused and on schedule.
I’m going to write this before I start playing video games because I will forget. Today I started counting calories. My goal is stay 1,200 cals or lower. According to My Fitness Pal my calorie intake for today was 1,313 calories. Dammit! Eh, It’s fine. I’m not going to feel discouraged because of it. I hit the gym and burned 215 cals. I weighed myself and came in at 182.4lbs.
I’ve missed blogging for 2 entries. I kept forgetting. I have not missed any supplements, but I am becoming a little frustrated because I have not lost any weight. I am yo-yo-ing between 181lbs and 184lbs. I didn’t want to do it, but today I am going to start counting calories. Grrrr. 1,200 cals a day and then burn at least 200 at the gym.
