I feel like I could eat anything and everything right now. I am drinking decaf coffee with almond breeze to try and satisfy the oral "fixation". If that doesn't work, I am going to try another cup, and if I still feel like bingeing after that, I am going to drink a glass of water, then some green tea, and push through this, but MAN it is hard!!!!!!!!!!!!! This is the first time in almost 6 weeks that I feel like sabotaging my efforts. Things are going really well right now for my weight loss efforts. I am right on track with my numbers, I am eating right, exercising every day. I may have been verging on overtraining, and maybe that is playing with my head. Plus, I am SOOOOOOOOOO TIRED. Sometimes being tired makes me think I am hungry. I figure that if I can cram my stomach full of calorie free liquids, there is no way I will have room to put any food. Once the kids are in bed, I will go to bed, but in the meantime, I better keep busy. If anyone is out there and has encouraging words, I could really use the support!

I did the interval run on Wednesday, also rode bike to work and back once, walked to work and back once, 1 mile solo run. NO ST, I was burnt out last night. Again tonight, no ST, I am so incredibly tired, trying to avoid getting sick by overtraining. I drove to work today, and only did my interval run with friends and 1 mile solo run.
Extra shift worked.
No dishes yesterday or today, but 1 load of laundry today.
I have kept my water intake to 10 cups both days.
Thursday food did not get planned, but I did track it and stay in range. I went way high on sodium today though. I have planned Friday's food tonight, and had 3 huge mugs of green tea to combat the sodium.
Today wasn't as busy as yesterday, but still overwhelming, I have no energy again tonight. I need to head to bed shortly so tomorrow will be more energetic. I absolutely have to have some energy to do something about my home, it is a disgrace, it takes me twice as long to accomplish anything because I have to wade through the mess, and getting dressed is an interesting feat with clean laundry strewn throughout my home. It is really getting on my nerves now, and I intend to do something about it on the weekend for sure. I had a wonderful outing with a friend I haven't seen for ages, the kidlets were along for the ride, and they behaved spectacularly, I really enjoyed their company. We went to the park after dinner out(tracked ahead of time!) and thoroughly enjoyed some fresh air while the kidlets played. Oh! I got a haircut today! Much needed, plus had my eyebrows shaped, I smile at myself every time I look in the mirror!
Friday plan: Interval run with running friend K(I have to assign initials at this point, because I now have three friends I run with on a regular basis, and I have to differentiate somehow! I love it!) 1 mile solo run for streak Day 27. NO OTHER EXERCISE!
Motorbike ride with hubby in the afternoon, can't wait! I have been looking forward to this all week.
Plan Saturday food before bed.
Buy some new/used books at the library.
1 load of laundry, attack the dishes a little bit.
Buy more epsom salts for lactic acid leaching baths.

My interval run didn't happen, friend got called in to work. I did my 1 mile run alone, then 44 minutes on my bike. Rode my bike to the school 3 times, home twice, walked home the third time wih the kidlets. Did my core ST after dinner, then put in 30 minutes on the stationary bike and a 10 minute swim.
Got in my extra shift, picked up another one tomorrow.
Dishes not done, no laundry too.
Wednesday food is planned!
Very busy day today, tomorrow will be the same. Dishes and laundry are always the first to go. I am starting to notice a difference in my abs, there is actual definition at the top! Yippee!
Wednesday plan: Interval run with new running friend, 1 mile solo run. Upper ST
Extra shift at work.
Dishes and laundry as always.
Drink ONLY 10 cups of water. I think the abundance of water I have been drinking is slowing down my weight loss for some reason.
Plan Thursday food before bed.

1 mile run done, lower ST, 43 mins rollerblade. I wiped out this morning, scuffed up my outer upper left thigh, bruised it pretty good too. I didn't get up early to run and ST, so I had to do it this evening. It HURT! My left leg did some serious screaming especially during the lateral lunges. I pushed through though, because it was SORE, not PAINFUL. I'm not sure if that makes sense, but it wasn't like a don't do that hurt just a don't fall on your keister again hurt!
Dishes were done when I got up this morning, thank you lovely hubby! I need to do them up again before I head to bed though. 1 load of laundry washed, dried, needs to be folded and put away.
Bathroom will get done before bed.
No yard work, it poured rain right after school.
No trailer work, had to put it down in anticipation of coming rain.
I am super hungry today, but I brought my calories down to 1700 on my plan last night, and then ended up removing a couple items from it before the end of the day. I need to plan tomorrow before I go to bed.
Interval run with new running friend. 1 mile run. Core ST
Extra shift at work.
Dishes stay caught up. 1 load of laundry.
Plan Wednesday food before going to bed.

When I started losing weight, I had been avoiding starting because I didn't want to deal with the attention I always get when I lose weight. I didn't want people to compliment me on my improved appearance at all, I just wanted it to be private. That is one of the things that attracted me to Sparkpeople, it is purely anonymous if you want it to be that way. As I used the site more, I wanted to share my achievements, both weight loss and fitness related. As the weight loss became obvious to people around me, I was pleased by the positive reactions I was getting. It felt good for my hard work to be recognized! One of the things I never thought would happen is for people to start asking me for advice! But, over the last couple of weeks, an acquaintance has been asking me how I lost weight, and what I could suggest for them to do the same. My quick response was "Eat right, and exercise" , because, basically, that is what it comes down to. However, today, I had a chance to talk with this person in more detail, and I felt so pleased that I actually had information to share. I have learned a lot here at Sparkpeople and now, I want to share it with the world! I passed along the address for Sparkpeople, and hopefully it will be helpful. Pay it forward was never so sweet!
