Triple T

Its Thursday day until Friday!

1.  Went and got a small fill this week ( for those of you keeping score at home I am now at 2.25 cc in a 10 cc band) and even though I don't know if it gave me any restriction or not it definitely helped me get my head back in the game.  I am focused....chewing like its my job...measuring....logging food and kicking hiney at the gym.  Just getting on the scale at the dr office was enough to get me going!

2.  Ordered two new workout shirts last night. This is one of them.

3.  I am sooooo bummed not to be at BOOBS.  would love to meet all of you some day.

4.  Kiddos are going to grammy's house for the weekend so hubby & I can have an anniversary redo.  I have NO IDEA what we are going to do with all that freedom ...I mean free time.

5.  Getting into the rhythm of work...back for a month & the routine is rolling along.  I think I won over my first period today....they have gone from tolerating me @ 7am to actually enjoying me & my crazy teaching activities at 7 am.

6.  NSV today.  Pizza brought in to teachers lounge for lunch...I am talking a truckload of pizza.   I wavered...picked up the phone and called a friend for reinforcement.  I really did not want any pizza...I brought a perfectly wonderful steak salad for lunch.....BUT. The idea of free pizza was really tempting me.   I could have had a slice but I am choosing to have two glasses of wine tonight instead.  Choices.

7.  Yesterday I had the day off from work and instead of sleeping in (like I wanted to) I still got up at 5 am to go to the gym (like I needed) and was home before the kids left for school.  It may be the only day all year that my daughter had cute hair.  Daddy just doesn't make her hairstyles a priority.  I love him anyway.

8.  Last weekend I got to spend 8 hours with one of my very best friends.  I had a blast catching up with her.  I think we talked non- stop the entire time!

9.  Kiddos are in their second week of swim team.  Man is it a lot of work!  For them.....not me....I am watching them swim.  (Actually, on Monday I was working out while watching them swim.  I brought my exercise bands and yoga mat and just worked out on the pool deck.  I REALLY DID NOT CARE IF THE OTHER MOMS THOUGHT THAT WAS WEIRD OR NOT!)

10.  I am making brownies tonight since it's my turn to host " neighborhood night.". EVERY SINGLE BROWNIE must leave the premises with the guests or there will be hell to pay.

hoping your weekend gets off to a great start.

Weigh-In Wednesday

Hello to all.  It is that dreaded day of the week where in order to hold me accountable, I weigh in PUBLICLY!!

Highest weight:  205
Weight on day of surgery:  180
Goal weight:  140-142
"Freak-out Weight":  145
Weight today:  146

A GAIN????  Does anyone see an upward trend??  Hands up.....(I am holding both of my hands in the air)

So what is a girl to do???

1. Get back on track with measuring food portions.  Since I haven't really had any fluid in my band since June, I know I can eat WAY TOO MUCH food.  Plus I am hungry every two hours. YUCK.

2.  Call and make a fill appointment.  (done)  Went to dr. yesterday and got .75 cc fill which brings me to about 2.25cc total.  This is actually lower than last September when I was trying to find my green we are a year later and I am still looking for it!!  That's ok though, I have all the time in the world to be back down to 140. 

3.  Kick up my exercise.  I have been keeping up with my workouts but the quality of them has decreased.  I  don't have that much time now that school has started so every workout minute needs to count!

Maintenance is a lot more difficult than I thought it would be.

Wednesday Weigh -in

Second week of posting my's actually hard for me to do.  (Posting it....not getting on the scale.)  I feel everyone knows if I ate healthy or not...which is the point ?  right?

Highest weight:  205
Weight on day of surgery:  180
Goal weight:  140-142
Last week: 144
Weight today:  145

A GAIN????  That's not what I was going for. Maintenance is tricky. 

I weighed in 4days in a row at 145.0...whenever my weight is EXACTLY the same, I know I am not eating enough.  I added in an extra 140 calories to my daily budget to see if that would break the cycle.  It did...weighed in at 144.4 & 144.6 the last two days.  Now I am starting to wonder IF maybe I don't need those extra calories??  I really don't want to gain.  I will start to cut back on some of my exercise since I go back to work tomorrow.

I guess I will have  to see what happens over the next few days and re-evaluate.
Happy Wednesday.
