Day 271 & 272

Standard

It has been a rough couple of days. This is my last week student teaching and they have been rough. The students aren’t listening very well so it’s been frustrating. I really am going to miss this group of kids though.  Even though there are rough days it’s still a good group of kids! 

I didn’t post a blog yesterday because I wasn’t feeling well at all after school. I ate then went straight to bed. I didn’t count my carbs yesterday either but I know for sure I didn’t go over.

Today I ate 2 string cheeses for breakfast.4g carbs. 

For lunch I had some hotdogs. 10g carbs. 

For dinner we had chicken. I had peppercorn ranch with mine. 2g carbs. 

Total carbs for the day 16g. met my goal for the day. 

I haven’t drank enough water today. I have only drank 50oz of water. I’m working on another 50oz bottle right now. So I’m going to try and get to 100oz before the end of the day.

Day 270-Pushing to do more! 

Standard

I can’t believe it’s already Sunday. This next week is going to be really emotional for me. It is my very last week student teaching. This group of kids has really stolen my heart. Who knew I would be able to get so close to a group of kids in 6 weeks. I will officially be done with college on December 6th. I can’t believe this is really it. I’ve put all I have into the last 4 1/2 years and it finally all coming to a close. Wow… 

I am really proud of myself. This morning at the gym I pushed myself harder then I thought I could. I didn’t really want to go to the gym today so the fact that I even went was something to be proud about. First me and my sister started off with arms weights. I decided to bench press. I did 60lbs 3 sets of 10. My arms have felt like jelly all day. I kind of like that feeling. I also did the arc trainer stair stepper thing for 15 minutes. I went .50 miles and burned 190 calories. Then the last thing and the one thing I am most proud of is I did 90 sit-ups! 90! I remember when I couldn’t even do 1. I am very proud of myself. I broke it up into 9 sets of 10 then waited 30 seconds in between sets! I’m very proud of myself I have come a long way! 

For breakfast I had some left over pork rind stuffing and a couple pepperonis. 1.6g carbs. 

I skipped lunch. 

For dinner we had pork chops and I had more stuffing with a little bit of cheese. 5g carbs. 

Total carbs for the day was 6.6g.met my goal for the day.

I’m almost at 100oz of water for the day. I’ve got about half of a 50oz bottle left but I have plenty of time to drink it before bed.

Day 269

Standard

Today was good. I only gained 5lbs from Thanksgiving. I was expecting at least ten. I was presently surprised this morning when I was actually down a pound from yesterday. Im not even mad that I’m up 5 pounds. I enjoyed my Thanksgiving with my family. I have all month to find recipes for Christmas. We are having everyone over at our house for Christmas so I will be able to make low carb foods. 

I went to the gym today with my sister. I did 40 sit-ups which is way more than I used to be able to do. I’m going to try and bump it up 5 sit-ups every other day. The skin on my stomach is starting to sag. The only down side to huge weight-loss in a short amount of time. I also did 15 minutes on the elliptical. I burned 197 calories and went 1.07 miles. Tomorrow I’m going to go twenty minutes. I’m also going to add two minutes every other day or every two days and just build up from there. I also walked on the treadmill at a 3.0 for ten minutes while my sister was finishing on the treadmill. I’m going to go every day this week. 

For breakfast I had some pepperonis. 0g carbs. 

For lunch I had turkey hotdogs. 7g carbs. 

For dinner I had a grilled chicken salad with blue cheese dressing. 11.8g carbs. 

For a snack I had some low carb stuffing.( I will post the recipe if anyone wants it. Comment on this blog if you want the recipe!) 1.6g carbs. 

Total carbs for the day 20.4g. Not bad only over my day by .4g carbs. 

So far I’ve only drank 50oz of water. I’m working on another 50oz bottle right now. I did have a diet Dr pepper with my dinner instead of water. Hopefully I’ll be able to finish this bottle before bed. 

Day 268

Standard

Today was much better than yesterday. I’m up 5lbs and it will probably be up more tomorrow but I know it will go down quickly. My goal for December is to get to 90lbs down. I know I can do it. I’m just have to set my mind to it! December will be better than November for sure it has to be. We cheated 4 times this month. So all month long I was trying to lose cheat day weight which meant I didn’t lose any actual weight. 

Yesterday night we put all of our Christmas decorations up. Christmas is my favorite holiday. I love all the lights and the cold. I’m very excited for Christmas. Its also one of the hardest times of the year because of all the comfort foods around me. I will not give in though!

I skipped breakfast.

For lunch I had a salad with blue cheese dressing. 12g carbs. 

For dinner I had steak with a little bit of cheese and hot sauce. 1g carb.

For dessert I had some jello “cheesecakes”. 8g carbs. 

Total carbs for the day 21g. Only one carb over for the day. 

Today I drank 100oz of water. 

Day 267-Thanksgiving

Standard

Today was Thanksgiving. I’m not going to lie I cheated. I don’t feel bad about it at all. I’ve been so caught up on my goal lately that I have really been getting down on myself. Yes I want to get there but I also want to live life and enjoy my time with my family. I didn’t want to miserable because I was eating different food then everyone else. So I ate the food everyone else did. I also cooked all the food so it was constantly in my face all day. It was very hard to resist. I know the scale will go up tomorrow but you know what it doesn’t matter. I know I will make my 100lbs mark before my year is up. Tomorrow I’m getting back on track and going to the gym. I’m going to get in the habit of going everyday. I hope everyone that reads this in the US had a good Thanksgiving. I hope you enjoyed and forgot about your diet for a few hours and know that it’s OK to live and spend time with your family every once in a while. 

Day 266

Standard

It’s Thanksgiving eve. I’m very excited. Everyone is coming over to my house for Thanksgiving. We have a bunch of people coming over. I plan on staying on track tomorrow. Im making a bunch of low carbs alternatives instead of the real things. I’m pretty excited about it! We will see how it goes. 

Im not too sure of my carb count today. I made jello “cheesecake” with jello mix and whipped cream. I snacked on the whipped cream. It had one carb per tbsp but I know for sure I didn’t have 20tbsps of whipped cream. 

I skipped breakfast.

For lunch I had tuna salad. 4g carbs. 

For dinner I had some turkey hotdogs. 6g carbs. 

I’m not sure of my carb count today but I’m pretty sure I didn’t go over.

So I have 100 days left until my year mark is up. I’ve still got 20lbs to go. I know I can make it to 100lbs lost plus some. I have to stay focused on my goals and I know I will get there.
