Fit Friday #1 (on Tuesday no less)

Well this first week of Fit Friday was a disaster. I was amazed when I wrote my food down at what I was eating. I have realized that I definately have to start eating breakfast and start packing my lunches. It has turned cooler so I am hoping to stock up on some soups to eat at work. We are also heading into the dreaded Holiday season with all of it's caloric wonderful food.

Here are my goals and what I have actually done in red.

Start walking my daughter to school - it's not far, but I am trying to create layer's of good choices. Haven't started as yet.
Eating a healthy breakfast every morning. Have done this a few times, but when I don't I tend to have really bad eating habits during the day.
Packing my lunch with lots of healthy snack choices. I haven't really done this, I am going to go get some soups and healthy snacks from the store tonight.
Exersice in the evenings at least 3x a week. Haven't started this yet.
Go for a walk or a bike ride on Saturday mornings. Didn't do this one either....I have been booked the last two Saturday's from Morning to night.
Not buying any more junk food. Since I haven't packed my lunch I have eaten out a few times. I did refrain from digging into the bag of candy that I bought for Halloween that was calling my name. Seriously....I heard it.
Quit TWD. (It is a great baking group but I can't have all those goodies in the house anymore) I did quit, and I haven't baked as much as I used to. I did have to bake one chocolate and caramel cake for a lost bet. (Who would of thought gas would go below $3! But I am glad I lost that bet.)
Buy a scale. (My daughter was playing with the last one and it broke) I am going to try to buy one tonight when I pick up the healthy snacks...
Blog HONESTLY about what I eat daily and post it every Friday. I am hoping that it will keep me honest in my food choices. ok....this is a hard one and embarresing....but I said I would do it so....

I forgot to keep track after that...but it doesn't get any better....went to my sister's baby shower on Saturday, went to the fair on Sunday....junk food galore.

I did pack the leftover turkey leg from the fair to shred up for my salad on Monday, but both yesterday and today didn't feel up to a cold lunch. I am taking home the turkey tonight to cut up for soup. I am starting fresh tomorrow......I will conquer this one day....

Hey girl! I soooooo know what you are going through. I need to lose weight so badly. My knees crack, my back hurts, and I'm constantly tired. But I too hear food calling me...especially this time of year. We will BOTH conquer it one day! :) (Guess I should've stopped with the cereal this morning, and NOT had the cupcake, huh?)

Who eats ONE candy corn? Are you serious?? These sugar monsters are completely addicting in my opinion - I don't dare start or I'll have half a bag gone in no time!
