Day 58

I didn't write last night because I was utterly exhausted. I laid down around 9:30 pm to read and was snoozing by 10:30. I think staying up late the night before and getting up early yesterday was not a smart combo. I drug around like a zombie most of the day yesterday. I went to bed early last night and slept late today.. so I am good. I wouldn't have slept late but my youngest started running a fever during the night, so I kept him home from school today.

So yesterday, other than being a zombie, was a pretty decent day. The scales weren't as nice as I had hoped.. but I did 2 miles on the treadmill and managed to keep my calories under control. I did have about 1/2 a cup of Diet Coke, but got in plenty of water.  I was home most of the day yesterday and I tend to have better days when I stay home where I control what food I am around. It is when I have to eat out, go to Moms, or any other family gathering for that matter, that I have the hardest time keeping myself in line.


  1. You did a good job, even going to your mom's on Sunday. What you ate wasn't unreasonable at all. I may be a little biased as I adore meatloaf! My dh doesn't though, so I don't get to it eat unless my mom makes it special for me, lol. My weight has leveled off at 218 :(. But I am now on day 4 of no exercise. I tried doing some walking today, but man it hurts! I had spinal surgery done in 2008 and get a really bad flare up every once in a while. My dancing in the kitchen with my daughter last week wasn't a good idea I guess! I also live within 25 miles of the school shootings that happened on Monday, and I've been so upset and stressed over that, that I haven't been able to really do anything but sit in front of the tv all day and watch coverage.

    I hope I'm not being too intrusive by commenting all the time and adding some of what goes on in my life. I really don't have a lot of people in real life who relate to what I am going through. Anyway, if I seem like a creeper or anything, just let me know, lol. I'm really not, I'm really nice!

    I'm going to try to get in some walking tomorrow, as it is supposed to be pretty warm here, I heard like 55 degrees....yay! Hope your able to get out and get active as well!

  2. Tracey,

    Haha.. a creeper! That's funny. I didn't think that at all. I am glad you are commenting. Keep it up! :)

    I'm sorry that you haven't been able to exercise. It really sucks not being able to do what you want to do. I know I have problems with my back a lot because I have scoliosis and it is miserable. I hope that you are feeling better this afternoon and can take that walk. It was gorgeous here yesterday.. but rainy and windy today. I doubt I'll be outside doing anything much today. I do hope to get some exercise in though. In one form or another. I want that scale to drop.

    I hadn't heard about the shooting as I try to avoid the news.. how sad! I would be devastated as well. ((hugs)) Such a tragedy.

    I hope you have a wonderful day!!
