Realistic Expectations

I didn't go to the gym yesterday. I wasn't planning to, as I'm only trying to do 3 days a week right now. But I was going to keep track of my calories, which I did not do.

I never ate breakfast; I just got too busy with my kids and the computer. *blush* Then for lunch I had 1/4 of a quesadilla and a few chips with cheese. Yes, very UN-nutritious. I ate some Cheez Its in the afternoon and then made potato soup with cheese bread for dinner.

I decided after getting sick last night that I need to start baking up chicken again. I need to make salads and eat that instead of empty calorie cheez its and lord knows what else.

So that's my plan today. I'm going to bake chicken and hit the gym later. This morning I'm watching 5 kiddos besides my own. They are so sweet and obedient and no trouble at all. Their parents are actually at an ultrasound appointment to find out if their 6th child is a boy or girl! So fun and exciting. =)

Anyway, I plan to go to the gym later this morning, as long as Kate feels up to it. She has been a little under the weather yesterday and today. Not full on sick, but definitely not brimming with life and vitality. So we'll see how it goes; maybe I'll attempt my Jillian video. Just the thought makes me quiver in my boots!

I need to set realistic expectations for myself and then stick to them. I can't expect to lose weight when I absentmindedly snack on stuff all day long. So I'm going to change that, because I can.

  1. I find taking small steps at a time works best. I was trying to do everything all at once, and it just did not work I ended up eating a lot of bad things and just feeling horrible about myself. So now I am vowing to not eat chips or drink regular pop for the rest of the week, that is my goal. It does not sound like much but I think smaller goals is the way to go in order to be successful, I hope. You can do it :)
