one step forward, two steps back

As usual, things have gone to hell in a handcart and diet and exercise are at the bottom of the list. Although I haven't been doing too bad on the eating front, the exercise front stinks. I've gone walking for an hour a whopping big one time. I was down to 198 and over my cousin's long wedding weekend, gained back up to 206. Four days of beer drinking will do that. Ugh. I'm back down to 203 and hopefully in a few days will be back down to 198. I plan on walking Mon, Tues, Thurs, and Fri every week. Friday will probably fall by the wayside most weeks, but 3 days of walking is better than none.

Trying to re-establish routine. Not working so well. Once school starts and there is a forced schedule it will be much easier. It will also be sooo much easier to start working out when this relentless heat lets up. 100+ for over a month now. My body just isn't handling it that well this year. Weird how my body is, some summers are good, some are bad, some winters are good, some are bad. I am hoping for a good winter to make up for the bad summer. The extra weight doesn't do my arthritis and joints any good. Doesn't do anything any good really. Remembered the random thing I ate over the weekend, beef jerky. WHY do I buy that stuff? Ugh.

Today's log:
Spaghetti with meat sauce Lean Cuisine, 2 slices garlic toast
big spinach salad with sprinkling of tomatoes, onion, mushrooms, english cucumber, bacon bits, cheddar with a drizzle of Annie's Goddess salad dressing
small slice key lime pie
Amy's Nacho Snacks

Not too bad, all in all. Has been being much worse. I really need to get strict on the small meals thing. I make better choices, and don't eat as much when I do eat.

copious amounts alcohol

Saturday - Sonic Super Burrito and DP
Taco Casa Taco Salad
Root Beer Float
5 or 6 empanadas

Saturday was so not good, was trying to fend off the hangover. Ugh, there is so a reason that I don't drink anything but beer. Damned peer pressure.

Handful of chips and 2-3 tbsp cheese dip
1/2 turkey sandwich, handful pretzels, bunch of grapes

handful of grapes

Gotta love the blog malfunctions

None of my posts since November of '07 are here anymore. Ah, well. Mostly more of the same, right?
It has been so hot here lately. High yesterday of 108. Ugh. Not conducive to exercise or any moving at all really. Not doing too bad on the eating either since it is so hot I really don't want to eat. Did have a piece of fried chicken and a bit of potato salad today, but otherwise all I had was grapes, a nectarine, a banana, and a couple of tortillas with a couple of tablespoons of taco meat. Not so balanced, but like I said, with the heat I am not hungry that much. Had seemingly gallons of water!

Still flab

Ugh. Here I am. A year and a half later. Last time I weighed I was at 199 1/2 again. That's been a month or so. My pants are even snugger now. My boobs are so uncomfortable, they're like flabby melons hanging there because I'm so fat. I got fit last year around this time. Was working out daily, eating right. Then let it all go to hell again. I decided earlier today that I HAVE to get back at it. I'm going to the grocery store in a bit to stock up on fruits, veg, power bars and Lean Cuisines. I have to be strict with what I eat and limit it. If it start cooking, I go overboard and make the wrong choices. Will work on cooking healthy again when I get the eating back under control. I have to get back into all those jeans in the closet, or I will be forced to wash the same to pants over and over because I am NOT going to buy bigger clothes ever again. Time to get serious. I've been watching the Biggest Loser, now I need to be a Big Loser.

So, a year later. Lost some. Gained more. I'm miserable. Last time weighed was 199. Must do something about this sugar addiction thing I have going on. STAT.
