Weigh in Wednesday

This week I did pretty good. 
I was (for the most part) back on track with my healthy eating.
Hopefully the weather will warm up soon, so I can go outside and get some exercise in.
Here are this weeks stats:
Heidi: -1 (7.9 total loss) YES! 
Aaron: +-0 (8.4 total loss) Not a gain!
Sometimes I get so frustrated with the weigh-ins because week by week its like 1 pound and 1.3 pounds and blah blah. I mean if you watch the Biggest Loser, they cry if they only lose 5 pounds! WTF that would be a dream come true. Okay so maybe they have like quadruple the weight to lose but still, they make my measly pound seem worthless. 
This week I want to make a short term goal of losing 1 pound!
Another goal for the week is to drink more water!
Question: For all of those out there who have struggled with emotional eating and have lost weight. How in the world do you not eat when life kicks you down!? What do you do instead?
***
So if you follow me on twitter 
(do you have a twitter? Lets chat!)
you may know that I had a bit of a "crappy" day. Pun intended.
Today has just been one stupid thing after another. 
So here is my list of positive things today:
we'll focus on the positive before the negative.

  • I got my Modcloth package in the mail!
  • Modcloth sent me a free headband!
  • I lost a pound this week
  • My husband brought home Cafe Rio
  • Coke Zero
  • Aaron bringing money for me to get gas, to my work

My new shirt, jacket and headband from Modcloth ♥
Sorry for all the crappy pictures. It seems to be the theme today.
I feel like a ballerina.
 and now on to the crap list:

  • On my way to work this morning I noticed my car had 9 miles until the tank was empty. I did not bring my wallet with me to work. I did not have enough gas to go home (to get my wallet) and to the gas station. 
  • My husband called me to say that our basement had flooded with poop. What a "crappy" situation. haha
  • Oscar threw up all over inside his crate
  • My car insurance bill was due today & I had not paid it
  • Sammie peed on our couch


Poor little boy still feeling sick:(
I hope he gets feeling better soon!
***
Oh life, what are we to do?
When It rains, it truly does pour sometimes.
Luckily I have an awesome dad who cleaned out my basement and bleached everything while I was at work. Seriously, I am glad he is my landlord. 
Also I am lucky to have a husband who brings me my wallet when I forget it, and brings dinner home after school. ♥
He didn't want me to take his picture.. bahahah.
Have a great week!
P.S. As soon as I get 100 Followers I will be hosting another giveaway, so lurkers maybe come out?

Diana Smith said...

yay I love reading blogs like this! I am trying to lose weight too by counting calories and today I totally cheated because it was not a good day! It was a sad day. So I totally know what you mean, its soo hard to not cheat!! We are in this together!

kenzie said...

gah, you are adorable. sorry about your 'crappy' day. it happens. ive been in such a funk lately. i think its that time of year. and just...things. bleh. congrats on the loss! i stayed the same. zero change. better than a gain, though i guess. ugh. weigh ins. blah! and i totally know what you mean by emotional eating. my trick ive used for the past few months: i think about WHY i'm craving chocolate. or reaching for my second and third helping. am i upset or just bored? then i tell myself its not worth it. and try to keep busy- usually go to the gym or run errands or window shop. anything to get me out of the kitchen and realize im not really hungry! also, night snacking? whenever i find myself in the kitchen at night looking through the fridge, i say "gaahhhhh" and just put on the water for tea. and drink tea instead. works! ummm. OH. i also chew gum while cooking/baking. it keeps me from 'testing' things and racking up unknown points. okie. hope my tips helped. love you! <3

Katie said...

I'm so glad you finally saw a loss! Its even better that you weighed out your husband :p

Sorry about your crappy day! At least you look supa cute :)

Elora said...

Everyone pound is HUGE! And you should definitely look at it that way. :D Keep up the hard work, and regardless of total weight loss, you will feel shiny on the outside and in. Besides I'm sure I've read/heard that it's much more difficult for women to lose weight, than it is for men. Chin up!

Sorry about the crappy day. Thankfully you Dad came to clean up, I would have died if I had to handle that all on my lonesome U,U

Yay for hubbies and family! :D

with a chance of said...

Wow, what a day! so much happened, when it rains it pours for you! you seem to be in good spirits about everything! i think you handled it very well. keep your chin up and remember that poop storms happen. you have a really wonderful support system behind you!

keep up the great work with your weigh ins! you're in inspiration!!!! ^_^

Hooray for losing a pound! That is wonderful.

I am sorry that your day was pretty crappy. I hope things get better. It is really sweet of your husband to bring your wallet and your dad to clean the basement. So sweet!

Ps. I hope your puppy feels better.

i'm more of a bored eater..i just eat when i have nothing to do... so i really don't know :( just keep yourself distracted? but hey you lost weight! yay! for heidi!!

oh but i can tell you last january i weighed 150, and it took 9 months to get down to 120. weight losing in a healthy way is a looooooooong process and i know how it feels to get frustrated! and sorry the poo in your downstairs....hee hee...

Liz said...

HA- lurkers? You don't want creepers following your blog. That would be gross and weird.

And you should have come to Springfield for the movie night. That would have made your crappy day a glorious one.

Every time you lose a pound, pick up a pound of hamburger meat. It will gross you out, but it will remind you of your seemingly small successes.

AND, my last two days have been horrible. HORRENDOUS. Terrible. AWFUL. So, I understand. It all seems to come at once. But having people like your husband.. my friends.. it helps put things in perspective.

SO ANYWAY, I'm sorry for your crappy day!!

(ps- I'm an emotional eater, too. I completely understand.)

1 pound is awesome! so much better than gaining! I am such an emotional eater! When I'm feeling upset or stressed I just want to eat! It's so hard!

Whitney, Coty, and Mr. Mason said...

when the weather gets warmer we can go on walks together. ill do that with you and its not like we dont live across the street from eachother. i have found that i can have a treat every now and then and in moderation(not eating the whole pan of caramel brownies). i eat when i get stressed which has been alot lately. my answer to not eating when im emotional..... have a baby. they take away the time to eat(except when you absolutely have to.)
