  1. Man I'm sleepy today. I guess I need a lot of sleep to feel well rested. Like 9+ hours. Considering I work 9 hour days (not including an hour lunch) and I have a 30 minute commute, I don't have a lot of time after work to get things done. Last night I made chicken & tortellini soup (so good!) and a cherry cheese pie to take to my grandmother's. She turns 90 years old today. Challenge Updates: Make Good Choices! I will eat mostly healthy meals and keep indulgent meals down to 3 or less each week. 0/3 While I did have unhealthy snacks, my meals were healthy. It's a step in the right direction. Monday: Breakfast: Scrambled Eggs Snack: banana Lunch: shrimp tacos from fuzzy's tacos Snack: Airheads candy Dinner: chicken tortellini soup Snack: leftover puffy cheetos Get in those Steps! I will take a 15 minute walk 5/7 days a week. 1/5 I got my walk in yesterday! Extra Exercise! I will play Ring Fit on my Switch 2x per week. 0/2 I did not play Ring Fit
  2. I had an awesome weekend! Saturday we had our TTRPG at my friend's house and I FINALLY got to play my character the way I built her! She's a fighter and we haven't had a lot of battles lately. This time my character was in an arena and had to fight a bunch of soldiers gladiator style. It was a lot of fun to just go crazy and I rolled moderate to high and with all my bonuses I think I missed a roll once in the entire battle! Haha!!!! After that I went to a party to meet up with my girlfriend (I am bisexual and poly). She was having a really bad day and I'm glad I was able to cheer her up. She hadn't eaten all day so I brought her dinner from one of her favorite restaurants. Then Sunday, I spent some quality time with my husband. It was really nice. Usually I'm either busy or super burnt out, but I set some time aside for just him and me. We watched a movie on HULU (The Princess) and it wasn't great. All action, almost no plot. We enjoyed commenting on it nonetheless. Then for dinner he brought us home some chicken caesar salads from one of our favorite restaurants. Awesome day! While I was typing this out I heard from my dad. It's my grandmother's 90th birthday tomorrow and while she doesn't celebrate holidays or birthdays (she's a Jehova's Witness), my dad wants to do something nice for her. So tomorrow night we're going to take her out for mexican food and I'm going to make her a pie. I'll have to take that into consideration with my food choices. Speaking of food choices. I went over my indulgence count over the weekend. The weekends seem to be my bane right now. I am going to try to start making better choices on the weekends. I need to change my headspace from "try" to "will". It's something I've always struggled with, but I think just the mindset of I WILL do this will help me a lot! @starpuck has helped me with that in the past, and she's totally right! Mindset is everything! I'm going to start focusing on healthy choices all the time, not just during the week! Challenge Updates: Make Good Choices! I will eat mostly healthy meals and keep indulgent meals down to 3 or less each week. 6/3 Did not make this goal. This has been difficult, but I will do better. I ate a tuna salad sandwich on Sunday, but then my husband (not knowing I already ate something) surprised me by bringing home dinner. I ate about half of the salad and a couple of the dinner rolls. Friday: Breakfast: Scrambled Eggs Snack: banana Lunch: Tuna salad sandwich, apple, pretzels Snack: balanced breaks Dinner: Steak, caesar salad, baked potato, & dinner rolls from Texas Roadhouse. Dessert: strawberry cheesecake from Texas Roadhouse Saturday: Breakfast: Scrambled Eggs Lunch: beef bulkokee from B-Won Korean Restaurant Snack: hot cheetos, swedish fish, both at game night Dinner: one spring roll from Panang Thai Restaurant (I was full from the chips and candy, didn't eat much) Dessert: 2 rice crispy treats Sunday: Breakfast/Lunch: Scrambled Eggs Snack: gummy bears Dinner: tuna salad sandwich & 2 pickles Dinner part 2: chicken caesar salad and dinner rolls from Texas Roadhouse. Get in those Steps! I will take a 15 minute walk 5/7 days a week. 2/5 I walked on Friday Extra Exercise! I will play Ring Fit on my Switch 2x per week. 0/2 I did not play Ring Fit Weekly Summary: So, I talked to some people on the discord this morning about finding an app that I can track my food by picture rather than writing it out or calorie counting. I've got a couple to try. I think that's what I miss most about the NF coaching thing. the app was great at helping me be more mindful of what I eat. I'm going to try one of these apps to see how it does.
  3. Yesterday was a good day. I'm feeling pretty good today too. After work yesterday my husband and I went to our niece's wedding. It was a simple ceremony and the reception just had cupcakes (so I'm glad I ate beforehand). I ended up having to leave early because I had to get up at 5:30am this morning. It was nice to get dressed up for the occasion. I actually wore a dress that I haven't fit into for years now! Now, compare that picture above with this picture of me taken a year ago: The difference makes me very happy! I've made a lot of progress and I am still going! Challenge Updates: Make Good Choices! I will eat mostly healthy meals and keep indulgent meals down to 3 or less each week. 2/3 I didn't have time to make anything for dinner because I had to get ready and go to the wedding. My husband left me a couple of slices of pizza from his lunch, so I ate that. At the reception they had cupcakes and lemonade. I had one cupcake and stuck to water. Thursday: Breakfast: Scrambled Eggs Snack: banana, peanut butter crackers Lunch: Tuna salad sandwich, apple, pretzels Dinner: pizza Dessert: cupcake Get in those Steps! I will take a 15 minute walk 5/7 days a week. 1/5 I walked for 15 minutes yesterday. Finally got one in! Extra Exercise! I will play Ring Fit on my Switch 2x per week. 0/2 I did not play Ring Fit
  4. Oh, I'm so bad at this type of thinking. I did that on Friday "Well, I didn't follow the plan today, I guess I might as well get an ice cream." I've tried to focus more on "Ok, I at least had a good breakfast today, so that's good." or "Ok, I didn't stick to the plan, but I did choose to get a side salad instead of french fries, so at least I got some veggies in." Years ago I had a friend call me out on the "well, I've done poorly, might as well do the rest of the day poorly" and it stuck. So I generally try not to fall into that pit now.
  5. Books about books... interesting. Kind of reminds me of an episode of Seinfeld where the group has to go to a different diner and they try to order a "Big Salad" and they say they don't have a big salad but she can order two small salads. When they ask if it can just be put in a big bowl, they are denied. lol.
  6. Man, my whole week has been thrown off too. I feel this. Oh man... I'm glad it's not something worse. That is really scary. I hope he recovers quickly!
  7. Even though my chiropractor hasn't given me any exercises to do, I've still been trying to stretch and do some things on my own. I've noticed that it's gotten a lot easier to pop my own back now. Actually, it now often pops without me making any effort to pop it. Weird. Lift them tires!!!
  8. I also would like to know what you are reading! I'm a big book nerd and have had my fair share of staying up too late with my nose in a book. Man, those days that are just terribly unmotivating and just overall blah is when it's hardest to see the positive. I'm glad you were able to find something and I think it's great that you had such a good discussion!
  9. Ooooh! Fun! I hope you have a great vacation! How's the ankle doing?
  10. Ok, so, stressful weekend. This week I've been really tired and lethargic. I think partly trying to recover from the drama over the weekend. It was pretty traumatic and it got violent at one point and I had to step in to help diffuse the situation. It was bad. I've had a few days to get my strength back and last night I went to bed early to get a little extra sleep. Feeling much better today! Also, over the past week or two, I've been stress eating and having trouble getting back on track. Thursdays are my weigh-in days so I expected to have gained some weight. Actually I didn't! Last week I weighed in at 261lbs and today I weighed at 258! I was so surprised! Feeling pretty good this morning! I feel like I'm getting back on track with my diet. The past two days I've had a perfect day on my diet! I'll outline it more below. Challenge Updates: Make Good Choices! I will eat mostly healthy meals and keep indulgent meals down to 3 or less each week. 1/3 Monday: Breakfast: Scrambled Eggs Lunch: Nachos Dinner: (I don't remember) I don't remember what, if any, snacks I had through the day. Tuesday: Breakfast: 3 eggs & an apple Snack: Balanced Breaks snack Lunch: Japanese hibachi & veggie gyoza Dinner: Pork chop, steamed veggies, small baked potato Snack: Smoothie Wednesday: Breakfast: Egg mcmuffin & a banana (I didn't really have a choice but to pick something up for breakfast on the way to work, so I got something small and fairly low calorie. I only got one breakfast sandwich and went for the ham instead of sausage. Snack: Balance Breaks Lunch: Tuna salad sandwich, apple, & pretzels Snack: pretzels, 3 pickles Dinner: Egg scramble (did a meal prep) Get in those Steps! I will take a 15 minute walk 5/7 days a week. 0/5 I have not walked. I've been really tired and recovering from the stress of the weekend. Today I'm determined to get a walk in though. Extra Exercise! I will play Ring Fit on my Switch 2x per week. 0/2 I did not play Ring Fit.
  11. I had a great weekend up until Sunday night. I don't really feel like typing it all out again right now, but let's just say it's ending with my sister and her wife getting divorced. I'm just trying to not give in to stress eating at this point. Challenge Updates: Make Good Choices! I will eat mostly healthy meals and keep indulgent meals down to 3 or less each week. 1/3 At this point I don't really remember everything I ate over the weekend, but I know I indulged way too much. I started to fall back into old habits. I definitely went over 3 indulgent meals for the week. Get in those Steps! I will take a 15 minute walk 5/7 days a week. 2/5 Didn't really walk much over the weekend. Extra Exercise! I will play Ring Fit on my Switch 2x per week. 0/2 I did not play Ring Fit.
  12. I go to a chiropractor too, but I guess my back issues weren't as bad as I thought, because I just have to get adjusted rather than having to do extra exercises at home. I hope the exercises help!
  13. So, I'm upset and depressed again. Super disappointed. Was supposed to have a big 4th of July party this weekend (nothing to celebrate America... just shooting off fireworks) but my sister who was supposed to host is sick with Covid. She's also the only one that can host. So, party is cancelled... or even if they decide to go on with the party, I'll probably bow out because I can't risk getting sick and passing it on to my 90 year old grandmother. This is the last year that all the kids will be home and we were planning a big party. Already bought hundreds of dollars in fireworks. I'm super disappointed. 4th of July is my family's big holiday... Challenge Updates: Make Good Choices! I will eat mostly healthy meals and keep indulgent meals down to 3 or less each week. 1/3 Tuesday: Breakfast: bell pepper and bacon bits egg scramble Lunch: chicken, veggie, pasta casserole Snack: pretzels, sargento balanced breaks, swedish fish candy Dinner: chicken, veggie, pasta casserole Snack: smoothie Didn't indulge in a meal. I did have some candy yesterday though. Get in those Steps! I will take a 15 minute walk 5/7 days a week. 2/5 I got in a 12 minute walk, couldn't do the full 15, but I'm counting it. Extra Exercise! I will play Ring Fit on my Switch 2x per week. 0/2 I did not play Ring Fit.
  14. Mmm... ice cream is hard to resist. I had some ice cream for the first time in months the other day and it was sooooooo good.
