Time to Buckle Down

It's been a crazy week with a lot of opportunities to eat out, family dinners and snacks all over the house.  Let's just say I haven't been doing good at all at losing some weight before my next appointments.  I see the weight loss surgeon next week and my primary doctor about 10 days after that.  I know they will expect me to lose some weight.  So, today I logged into the LOSE IT website and started tracking my food.  I also forced myself to take 2 breaks so I could log some exercise by going on a walk.  It's not much, but it's a start.  Of course, there needs to be more exercise than this to make a difference, but it's a start.

I woke up this morning with a negative little cloud over my head.  It didn't help that it was also a Monday morning and I had to motivate myself to go to work.  Plus, I had the added disadvantage that I had not been very vigilant in taking my medications in a timely manner over the weekend.  I always feel sick when I do this and it takes me a day to turn things around.  So, I opted to drink only water and avoid all carbonated drinks.  I know I have to wean myself from diet Pepsi and energy drinks, because when I do get the surgery, I won't be able to drink them ever again.  The carbonation will make gas in my tummy and that would be no bueno!

So, I was a cranky, tired woman all day and just wanted the day to end.  But, I will try harder tomorrow.  Here is what I ate today:

I will probably eat some sugar free jello still this evening, but overall, I think I am done for the day with eating,  I should go and jump on my treadmill this evening still, but the garage is about 150 degrees right now on this hot summer evening.
