Tonight I MADE a pizza...I was feeling like pizza, and I know, it's not healthy, but it's healthier than ordering one. I couldn't find a whole wheat crust, but I loaded it up with veggies, whipped up a quick sauce and limited the amount of cheese.
My workout this morning happened, but was kinda meh. And my knees still hurt, despite the new pair of New Balance gym shoes I treated myself to. Running is the highest-impact, IMO, and I just don't feel worked out without running at least 2 miles, so I need to figure out how to protect my knees.
I haven't been eating at night!!!
Well... It's not the best thing for you but you are atleast thinking about it. That is a very important thing! Congrats on not eating at night,
that can be a very hard thing to control!

Good job on keeping your portions under control! That is something that will really help you in the future when you are just trying to keep at your goal weight and not counting all the time! Keep your head up, youll get through this!
OK, so I need to vent a little. I'm ticked!!
On monday I canceled our workout due to me and DH going to the movies. We had free tickets that expired that night. I very very very rarely cancel. Maybe 2 times since we started other than the two weeks when my back was really
messed up around new years! So, tuesday I call her to make sure we're doing all our stuff and she's getting her water heater put in... Ok, I understand that. We weighed in really quick and descided we'd wait till the landlord left then workout. She calls me about 10:30pm, she fell asleep and now we're not working out!
I was upset but... OK... I'm alright with it. Tonight when I get home.. she's not here. Granted she had Karate and normally get's home about 8:45pm. It was almost 9pm. I waited until 9:30pm then descided to go for a walk by my self! I can't go another night without something! I got back around 10pm and she still wasn't home. Right now it's almost midnight and no call, nothing! Which means she went out to eat and drinks with the people from karate. I'm not mad she went out... I'm mad I didn't get a call and that we haven't worked out together since Thursday!
When we weighed in on Tuesday she was up lbs. I think if she just stopped going out so much and stopped drinking when she goes out, she'd be doing so much better. That and making sure we get in our workouts! Thanks for letting me get that out guys! For my walk tonight I did almost 2 miles and I went for speed. I also jogged for parts of it. Which is something I've never really done before. I made little goals for myself. I jogged to the next pole. I jogged to the fire hidrent. I couldn't do it the whole way but I went as far as I could then walked, then when my side didn't hurt, I jogged again! I was very proud of myself. When I checked the mapmyrun I was at17:01.8 min/mi, 3.52 mi/hr, & burned 257.2 cals. Not a lot but right now... better than nothing!
Now for some better news yet. I went to the store to get something tonight and they had two pairs of jeans the under the size I just got in to on clearance! They were $6.24 each. I went and tried them on. I can get one pair on, though it's not an entirely pretty sight! The other I can get up but not zip. I still brought them. I am going to keep losing weight and that was too good of a deal to pass up. Once I get into those completely I will be down 8 inches or 4 pant sizes! :grin: That will make me so proud! I also bought 2 tanks tops for $2 each! That was a great deal! And they very much come in handy for work during these hot summer months coming up. I wear a tank with a button up baseball shirt over top (unbottoned) Hides the flab but keeps me cooler!
I think you all are great for listening (or reading) I really needed to get that all out! Now I'm less stressed!
