A New Start

Well I weighed this morning and of course I didn't like what I saw.  The scale said 224.8 lbs but thats ok I'm making a new start.  I've already had my breakfast this morning which was 1 1/2 cups of Kellogg's FiberPlus Cinnamon Oat Crunch cereal and 1 cup skim milk.  Here is my schedule for the rest of the day.

Clean House
Take shower and get ready
Wash, dry and put away clothes
Pay bills
Make phone calls
Take off Trash
Grocery shopping
Walk (2 miles)
Fix Lunch
Put weight bench together
Clean up my car
Fix Dinner
Drink 50 oz water
Mow grass- can't do today has flat tire
Get kids off to their dads
Do weight training
Do pushups
Drink 50 oz water
Have a relaxing, stress free evening

Seems like alot to do but I love staying busy, keeps my mind off food.  Well kids just got on the schoolbus so time for me to get to work.  I'll be updating throughout the day to let you know how I'm doing.  If I can just make it through this one day then that will get me back on track.

A short update about my eating.  I didn't really eat lunch I just kind of snacked when I got hungry and I ended up eating 1 banana, 38 veggie straws and a handful of mixed nuts.  Still working on getting all my work done so I can just relax and enjoy this weekend.

For dinner I had a salad and for a snack I had 4 lowfat cookies.

I'm bored out of my mind and got a killer headache so I'm having to fight the urge to eat plus I don't feel like doing my weight lifting right now.  I did have a couple snacks, 2 cups grapes, 2 lowfat cookies and 38 veggie straws, but not all at one time.  My eating has been pretty good today so I just want to make it to bedtime without eating anything else.

Well I ended up falling asleep and didn't do my weight training or finish my water but thats ok I still had a good day.


  1. I so agree that keeping busy helps so much. While relaxing this evening take time to pat yourself on the back. Make your goal to go to bed each evening feeling good about the day you just lived and looking forward to tomorrow's success. Your weight isn't so bad - I visit the blogs of many who weight more than you do. They share the need to make the plan and then work the plan just like all of us.

  2. Good luck on getting started again! After several months off plan I am doin the same today. Found your blog a couple of days ago so you have a new follower :) Looking forward to seeing your progress and sharing in your struggles!
