hacking away

I was 209.8 lbs this morning.  working my way down. 
i did have a good eating weekend, i even did workouts on saturday and sunday.  on Saturday I walked on the treadmill for 30 minutes.  sunday i worked out with the dance central 3 that i just purchased. 
i am thinking about trying the walking program i was doing before. i stopped after a while because my shins were killing me.  before i was walking at 4.0 for the alotted time.  maybe i should aim for 3.8 instead?

goal progress?

i was 211.0 this morning (down 2.8 lbs) but this might be a fake weigh in.  ive been sick with the stomach bug since after dinner on tuesday.  Today is Thursday and i missed 2 days of work thanks to mr SB.  grr.  i wasnt able to get to the gym on monday, i started feeling off shortly after dinner, i dont normally head out to the gym until 8pm or so.  around 7:30 i was like ugh im not feeling right (and my husband had just gotten over the bug himself).  so at 8 i was like, yep im going to go to bed and hopefully wake up at 6:30am and not have puked my guts out.
so off to bed i went.  i made sure there was a clear path to the bathroom (i like to keep my clean laundry in the baskets at the top of the stairs-and yes im too lazy to fold my clothes, it gets done eventually, more like when i need laundry baskets to put the dirty clothes in).  at 10:30 pm i jolted away and ran to the bathroom, just in time.  almost threw up on a cat (why do they like the toilet so much).  spent the next 20 minutes crying (i cannot stand to throw up) and talking myself out of throwing up anymore.  and wanting to sleep.  not to mention the random fits of freezing or burning up. 
my husband was nice and gave me one of the gatorades i had gotten for him.  at least that took some of the sting out of my mouth. 
i laid back down for a few hours and was up again 2 times to throw up and 3 other times thinking it was going to happen. 
i ended up texting my bossman at 6am saying i wasnt going to be in that i was sick with the stomach bug.  he did end up calling me around 9:30am, asking me some billing question, like that couldnt wait?  then i was off yesterday too, i was just so tired. 
so today im eating with caution.  eating slow.  also allowing my insides (i keep calling whatever hurts my guts) to heal.  i wont go to the gym tonight, we will see about tomorrow, definately back to it on saturday. 
so if i get around to updating tomorrow if the scale has gone up i wouldnt blame it.  i barely ate anything tuesday and yesterday i had a milk shake and mac and cheese for dinner (which i regretted the mac and cheese two seconds after finishing it).

pushing a goal?

i have a crazy goal,  i want to be 200 lbs or less for my b day (april 7).  looks like it is one day short of 7 weeks away.
as of this morning i was 213.8 lbs (i was 208 last week but i had a massive food binge weekend which shot me right back up.  i do realize probably at least 3 lbs of this will go away super quick, once it gets through my digestive system). 
so that is 2 lbs a week right? 
other than that ive been dealing with a death of a bird (parakeet, RIP buddy) and another sick bird (lerch he is healthy now, but we had to give him medicine for two weeks, he is also a parakeet-both had what i would call a bird cold-birds cant cough like humans, so their lungs get filled up with fluid and they suffocate, luckily for lerch the vets was open and took us right away) and one huge issue-my mother being flown into philly with what we thought was a stroke but it turned out to be a seizure.  she was in a coma for 2 days!!!!  luckily we live so close to philly and she was sent to a hospital that specializes in brain trauma.  i went to see her the thursday after she had the "event" (she went in on feb 4, so this would have been the 7th) and she was having issues remembering words. we saw her again that saturday and she was doing better (and out of the ICU) i just spoke to her on the phone she is allowed to go back to work 3 days a week but only for 4 hour shifts.  I am one of 4 children but my mother left us when i was 8 (im number 2, the others would have been 12, 7 and 3) but i feel like being her child falls squarly on my shoulders.  my brothers refuse to talk to her.  my oldest brother did let his girls call and talk to my mom for a minute (that would be their grandmother). 
anyway i will update often with my goal.  i should make fancy tickers and all of that, but maybe ill do that tonight after i get home from work. :)

Next weigh in (besides doc's appointments, which i have none planned right now, well not until May 31st) March 1st.  so 28 days to drop some weight. 

goals: back to the gym and working out to a set calorie goal 5 days a week. 
maybe hitting 2000 fuel points on my nike band (it seems hit or miss, some days when i work out i dont hit goal, other days when i dont work out I do hit goal). 
keep journaling (did awesome with this). 
stay within calorie range (1500 to 1800 per day).
and stick with the entire plan.
