Day 20

Standard

Today was a pretty good day. My daughter wasn’t so fussy so I was actually able to get stuff done. I was able to pick up our bedroom, hang up all our clean clothes, do a few loads of laundry, and clean out my closet. I didn’t just want to sit on the couch and watch t.v. today. I’ve been doing that for 5 weeks and I’m not doing it any more. I’ve got 5 more weeks of maternity leave and I’m not going to do nothing that entire time.

I’m really trying to get my activity up throughout the day. I keep for forgetting to put my fitbit on in the morning so I’m just going to sleep with it on from now on. So tomorrow I will keep track of my steps. I’m going to try and get at least 7,000 a day then work my way up to 10,000.

Food for the day:

For breakfast I had a Jimmy Dean scramble. 2g carbs.

For lunch I had a few Turkey hotdogs with cheese and a little bit of sugar free bbq sauce. 8g carbs.

For dinner I had apple wood smoked bacon pork loin and a few bites of broccoli. 9g carbs.

For a snack I had a few slices of ham with ranch. Later on I had a turkey hotdog and some olives. 5g carbs.

Total carbs for the day 24g. I only went over my limit by 4g. Not too bad. Weigh-in is in 2 days. I can’t wait to see if I have lost any this week.

For water today I drank 90 ounces of water today which is 10 ounces over my goal!

Day 9

Standard

It’s been a long day. My daughter is now 3 weeks old. She actually slept 5 hours straight last night so I was able to get a good bit of sleep. This morning she had gas pains so she was crying pretty much all morning. I had to go to work today to lay out lesson plans for next week. I also had to pick up papers to grade. There was a huge stack waiting for me. My kids were horrible for the sub last week. I’m so disappointed. They know what i expect and they should do that while I’m not there. That’s one thing that sucks about being a teacher.

I didn’t lose anything today but I didn’t gain so I’m still feeling pretty good. I know I’m eating the day om supposed to and that’s all I can do at this point.

Food for the day:

For breakfast I had a Jimmy Dean scramble. 2g carbs.

For lunch I had ham and cheese roll ups with ranch. 7g carbs.

For dinner I had baked chicken with cheesy broccoli. 11g carbs.

For a snack I had pork rinds with buffalo sauce. 0g carbs.

Total carbs for the day 20g. That is right at my goal and the first time in awhile that I was actually at my goal.

As for water goes I have drank 60 ounces so far and I am working on another 30 ounces. That will put me at 90 ounces for the day which is over my daily goal.

Day 5

Standard

Today was a good day! I weighed myself this morning and I’m down 3lbs from yesterday! I’m excited it feels good to be making progress again. I also had a pretty good night of sleep last night. My daughter slept peacefully. She woke up to eat then went right back to sleep. She sleeps pretty good for an almost 3 week old.

I’m trying to get up an walk more. Being at home all day has made me just want to sit o. The couch and watch tv until the baby wakes up. I tried to get up and clean. I got two loads of laundry done and the living room and dining room picked up but that’s pretty much it.

Once again I fasted again until around 11. I wanted to snack all day today. That’s the problem with being home all day with food all around me. It’s all low carb food but eating too much can still make me go over my carbs. I did go over by a few carbs but not by much which I’m okay with.

Food for the day:

I skipped breakfast.

For lunch I had ham and cheese roll ups with ranch. 8g carbs.

For dinner I had garlic herb chicken. 8g carbs.

I had two snacks today the first was 2 hot links and the second was left over pulled pork with sugar free bbq sauce. 6g carbs.

Total carbs for the day 24g. Only over my goal by 4g which isn’t too bad.

I drank about 90 ounces of water today which is over my goal!

Day 1!

Standard

Today was me and my husband’s first day back on the diet. It wasn’t hard today because I was completely exhausted and didn’t want to eat anyways. My baby was up crying all night with gas pains. My husband worked today so I stayed up with her all night. Plus I needed to go grocery shopping because we literally had no food in the house.

I weighed myself again this morning. I’m down 22lbs since I had my baby. I’m hoping with being on the diet now it will continue to go down. I only ha e 34lbs before I’m back to where I was which honestly since that much. I can definitely do it. I’m excited to get started.

My goals for each day are going to be under 15g carbs. I need to drink at least 80 ounces of water. Starting tomorrow (because my fitbit is not charged) I will be taking at least 7,000 steps a day. I’m going to do my best!

Food for the day:

I skipped breakfast.

For a late lunch I had a bag of Turkey bites. 4g carbs.

For dinner I had chicken with lemon herb seasoning with a little bit of ranch. 2g carbs.

For a snack I had a couple hot links. 4g carbs.

Total carbs for the day 10g. I met my carb goal for the day and still under a few!

My water goal didn’t go as planned. I didn’t start drinking water until around noon. I did manage to drink 62 ounces which isn’t bad but not where I should be.

I did pretty good today. I was hungry pretty much all day but I didn’t go off track. Tomorrow is going to be hard because we have a luncheon that’s not really a luncheon it’s just sweets. I’m going to stay as far away from the teachers lounge as I can. 

I have a doctors appointment next Tuesday so I’m going to try and be as good as possible. I am going to cheat on thanksgiving so o just need to gold off until then!

For breakfast I had a Jimmy Dean scramble. 2g carbs.

For lunch I had a salad. 5g carbs.

For dinner we had Cajun seasoned pork loin. 6g carbs.

For a snack I had a couple Turkey hotdogs. 6g carbs.

Total carbs for the day 19g. Under my 30g carb goal!

I’m trying drink as much water as possible for the next few hours. I hardly drank any at work today. I was running around all day and just forgot.  I’ve had about 30oz today.

This week is a short week at school since veterans day is this week. I’m actually excited about this week. I have two ultrasounds. One for my doctor tomorrow afternoon then one on Friday for our redo 3D ultrasound. I hope Miss Emma cooperates! It is bittersweet though. I won’t get to see her again until she’s born. It’s getting closer though. I can’t believe it how fast it is going by.

I weighed myself this morning to see how much damage i did over my little cheating binge last week. I’m up 6lbs. I’m need to get back on track and lose that before my next appointment. I want to try and maintain around where I was. I keep using pregnancy as an excuse to cheat but what am I going to do after I have her. I will still need to continue low carb afterwards because I am so far from where I want to be.

For breakfast I had a Jimmy Dean scramble. 2g carbs.

For lunch I had a salad with ham,bacon, egg, and blue cheese dressing. 5g carbs.

For dinner we had applewood smoked pork loin. 12g carbs.

For a snack I had some pork rinds and a few Turkey hotdogs. 4g carbs.

Total carbs for the day 23g. Under my 30g carbs goal for the day!

At school today I drank about 40oz of water. Then at home I drank about another 20oz. So I drank somewhere around 60oz of water today.

Well i haven’t posted in a few days. I’ve been off track. Emotionally eating has really gotten me lately. I’m so stressed about work. It’s driving me crazy. 

I also had my baby shower. I planned on only having a piece of cake which is off track but not bad. Well only 6 peo ple showed up so I ate my feelings. I’m not proud of it but o just felt like no one cares enough to even show up. I guess I just expected more support from friends since this is our rainbow baby. I know that’s not a reason to cheat but it made me feel good for a few minutes. 

I’m back on track tomorrow. I’ve got two weeks until my next doctors appointment so I don’t want to gain from cheating.
