Day 29

Well, for a good portion of the week, I was down about 3 pounds. My activities on the weekend almost erased all of that progress. At least I am down one pound from last week. But, hello, I am frustrated with myself. This is where I've been sitting for so many months. No matter what progress I make, I end up right back in this vicinity. I know it's my own fault for continuing to 'mess up'. What I think I'm realizing, is that the kinds of things I was doing before, are not enough now. I have to work harder at losing these next 40 pounds than I did the first. Why would it take me 6 months to realize this? I blamed it on our vacation, the holidays, the lack of name it. Instead, cutting my portions down and doing those several workouts a week, just isn't going to cut it anymore. I am going to have to be diligent about cutting out things I really don't want to cut out. My 'little' indulgences are making it so my progress is at a standstill. My philosophy to not deny myself anything looks like it may have to change.

Breakfast 8:30 am: the remaining 1/2 of the egg white veggie omelette from Village Inn, one piece whole wheat toast w/ honey

Snack 9:30 am: 1 Tagalong

Lunch 11:00 am: 1 waffle w/ one banana sliced on top, skim milk, homemade syrup

Can't make it until dinner snacks...throughout the afternoon: 1 graham cracker, 3 Thin Mints, 2 Reese's cups (Why didn't I make better choices???? )

Dinner 6:00 pm: Turkey breast, mashed potatoes w/gravy, stuffing, corn, dinner roll, cranberry sauce, broccoli salad, 2 celery sticks, 2 baby carrots, about 8 green olives, pumpkin bars. Thanksgiving in February? pretty mom's wonderful meal put on for a family dinner. At least I only drank water....

I find it very hard to pass up the kind of stuff I listed above for dinner. There was a lettuce salad available, of which I had none. I did have a few vegetables, but for the most part, I went carb crazy. Wish my will power had been better.

I didn't go to the gym yesterday either...decided it should probably be my one day off for the week because my knees were hurting. I really hope they don't become a problem. I really need these workouts.

I did go to the grocery store yesterday, so now I have a few more sensible things to snack on. Back to it today. Next weekend is another challenge, as I will be away from home. Better make lots of progress during the week.

Day 29: Fun visit with cousins, aunt and uncle, sister, nephew, brother-in-law and Mom and Dad. Great food.....I just ate too much!
