I HATE the scale

Friday, May 07, 2010

This has really been a whiney week and I'm going to continue the streak. Okay so my little monthly friend has finally showed up and I'm thinking woo hoo, I've been peeing like a race horse, so this water weight is coming off and the scale will move. Oh it moved alright, two pounds up. I'm soooooooooooooo frustrated right now, especially after my jeans blog... the other hormonal brain has taken over. I wanted so much to have my cheat day tomorrow, but now I'm so frustrated I probably won't eat anything. Instead of 5 lbs off course, now I'm 9 lbs and I totally don't foresee the scale moving 9 lbs overnight to get me back to that goal. According to all the little happy calculations I should have lost over 10 by now and I'm at 6.. barely. that is 14,000 calories that are unaccounted for in my body. There is NO WAY I ate them and I know I worked out... so where are they? Why aren't THEY GONE FROM MY BODY. Yes I'm yelling. Can't yell at work you know, so you have to listen to me.

Now for issue number two after lunch blog. Lead trainer at my gym. Total moron. Thankfully I don't EVER want to work out with him. He's just so full of himself already but today took the cake. The moron was working out in the gym.... without his shirt on. Come on dude.. professionalism.. at least a little. Go ahead and degrade the occupation of personal training a little bit more. Where did you get your certification?? A cereal box? dude... now.... this is NOT a little hard body gym, this is a national chain.

    I know what you mean! I, too, am trying to figure out why my scale numberse do not match the calories I have not eaten or exercised away. Oh, well.....I figure that my body will have to acknowledge what I am doing sooner or later. I think it has chosen later.

Keep moving forward! SUCCESS IS YOURS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! emoticon

    You are killing me over here, you're off the chain!! OK, steam from your head is decreasing. A little hormonal huh! I never weigh myself when TOM visits, bound to cause anxiety and angst. Matter of fact, kick that bad boy to the curb for the next few days and it will be alright. Breathe deep, you're doing great!

    I know, I know. My logical side is coming back into focus. Had this insane hormonal rant and it disappeared. Hit the Post button and got the ugly 400 error. UGH.. well at least I didn't scream at anybody. Obsessive/compulsive hormonal female slowly leaving and logical person coming back around.

    calm down, get rid of the scale and only weigh 1 time every two weeks. And quit trying to be a mathmatician. Just eat the amount of calories you are suppose to have ,try to drink
a little water and enjoy being the beautiful person that you
are. If you do all of this it will surprise you as the weight starts to fall.
Keep up the good work.

Finally Friday - you mean's it's not payday and I have no money?

Friday, May 07, 2010

You know my life.. kind of boring. We didn't play volleyball all week (which is strange). Of course in my paranoid mind is the kids don't want to call us any more because Mom (me) wants to play and since I've been out for almost two years my skills are kind of lacking right now and I guess they don't have the patience to wait for me to get back in my game by actually letting me play. Of course that's the paranoid brain. Hubby just says, they are probably still putting up the back nets (which was supposed to be done last year, last week, last, yeah you get the picture). Unfortunately since the courts sit on a lake, it's kind of needed.

and I digress again. It's jeans day at work. I wake up, going to put my levis on, they should just SLIDE on, right, I mean I've lost almost 8 lbs and done a lot of major weight training. Yeah.. they didn't SLIDE on. Little struggle... but I had to put the thinking brain in action again instead of letting my you stupid idiot, this is not working hormonal rage kick in... well, Sherri, you put a size 14 body into a pair of size 12 jeans (somehow) for the last six months. Think about it, you have to wear a belt now to hold them up (the belt which you can NOW FASTEN and you couldn't a month ago). Things aren't spilling over and looking GROSSSSSSS any more... still a little love handlish, but nothing hugely dunlaping over the front. Come on girl, wake up, you're good.

Man it's hard to squelch that hormonal I can't do this any more brain. It's a beating. Well I'm looking at my 2 cups of watermelon (it's friday I get to splurge up to two cups, woohoo). That and I know I'm not going to drink any "HEAVY" beer tonight because hubby doesn't have softball. He had Taco Cabana breakfast tacos this morning so he has to work major cardio tonight (tehehehehehe). I'm going to work on my back today. Tomorrow will be my major cardio abs day since I have more time, but tomorrow is also a cheat day because a friend is having a party and I LOVE filipino food. His egg rolls are too die for. So maybe I'll do some cardio tonight too. Hmmmmm.


I should post after lunch

Thursday, May 06, 2010

My posts are much more energetic after lunch. I am just NOT a morning person. So yesterday I said I tried some new stuff for my legs, well muscle memory was NOT happy. I was propping my legs up to give them the old morning shave and ouch I felt my inner thighs and my quadriceps hurt. Hmmm, something good about that. It's painful but I like it because it means something is working. Found out I'm not pregnant (yay). So today is cardio. Really trying to work the treadmill and get back to some sort of running, I mean you have to run in softball right? I did make a decision to NOT play softball and possibly experience some sort of setback until we get back from Cancun. Finances are a huge stress issue right now (oh the Cancun trip is a company paid conference, woo hoo). Struggling to stay out of the red. Went over my calories for weight loss yesterday, but stay under for BMR, so I guess that's okay. I'll make up for it today with a lot more fruit. I mean we had to have nachos yesterday, it was Cinco de Mayo and all emoticon At least I didn't drink tehehehe

omygosh the feeling of trying to walk after you've been sitting down for awhile. Trying to walk is the key term there. Anyway, to go on with my rants today. Hubby and I were talking about what we do if we won the lottery. I would like to open a gym, a small one, but a good one. We used to go to a little "Hard Body, muscle builder gym" and I rather enjoyed it. I wasn't that intimidated by the body builders, just went with the flow. Anyway, I could implement that with my skin care (yes I sell Arbonne, ABSOLUTELY LOVE IT) and they have natural weight products. Anyway, thinking about finishing that kinesiology degree and going to Cooper and Ace and getting certified again... well in about 30 lbs anyway. Preventive health has always been a small passion of mine.

Blog addendum, I'm sitting here reading and posting and blogging when I should be working, but I was thinking. Well first I had to get up and walk and omygosh, you know that feeling when your legs are sore and you can barely move much less walk, yeah I had that. But.. hubby was talking about winning the lottery again (yeah don't go there) and what we would do (Texas lottery is pretty big or it was last night). Anyway, I decided I wanted to own a gym, a little one. I think it would be kind of cool. I've wanted go back into personal training. I can implement my skin care into (yes I sell Arbonne, ABSOLUTEL

hahahahah.. the last paragraph was actualy written and then disappeared... whoops.. I've lost my mind.

    It's a GOOD thing I don't get stuck on numbers (yeah right)... scale went up 1 1/2 lbs and so since I ate the nachos last night, my right brain would be saying you stupid idiot, you screwed up, now every time you eat, you're going to gain, but the other brain finally woke up and said uh duh goofball, you probably stored some water since chips have salt and salt retains water. Ding dong... hahahaha, I'm all right with it, just don't want it to stay there and flushing myself out and eating more veggies and fruit today. Did my cardio, it was a bit of a struggle. I know pre-workout drinks are getting a bad rap right now, but I missed my No XPlode today.. it's my happy crack for working out. (I forgot I took my container home and didn't refill it).

Wearing sleeveless even though I know I shouldn't, but I have a little definition, but also alittle, bleck... oh well.

It's Wednesday

Wednesday, May 05, 2010

So I'm not really good at titles. I can't say that I've got any overwhelming news. Just journaling I guess. Worked legs today. Did some things a little different, yanked a couple of ideas from my good ole Oxygen Magazine. The thrill of heavy thighs and podunkadunk is gotta work those glutes and adductors/abductors. Wasn't too thrilled with my reflection in the mirror, still seeing the bumpy cellulite city and that drives me nutso. Anyway, just blogging.. off to a meeting.

Well I'm in a definite funk. I dislike my job tremendously but have no way out of it. I'm exhausted. My period is late but a test was negative. My weight loss has been slow if at all. My clothes are still fitting tightly and it's been well over a month and I'm not cheating and I'm exercising. My knee hurts even after it's happy crack day. My foot hurts every time I work out. Let's see what else I can complain about. Oh yeah finances are in the toilet. I'm so tired of fighting everything right now. Just want to crawl back in bed for a week or two. I hate waking up every morning to go to a job I dread. Thankfully I don't have the boss issue any more, but it's still just a beating. Corporate world sucks. They make profit but beat you down. Yes I'm glad I can pay my bills by having a job, but I know there is something out there I would enjoy so much more.. just wish it would pay the bills. Being the primary breadwinner with no options is a just no fun.

    Oh girl, I completely empathize. I'm the major breadwinner too, and finances always seem to be a struggle. Plus, I had a job that I truly hated for 5 years. It sucks the life out of you. Probably the best thing that happened to me is some stupid, gossipy, horrible woman was hired - the 'one bad apple ruins the whole bunch' scenario - and I realized it was time to get the heck out of there. I'm actually thankful that she was so awful, she motivated me to start visualizing myself out of that place!

Keep your chin up, start thinking about what you want: health, rockin' body, better finances, a more enjoyable job, etc. Spend a couple minutes every day trying to feel like you already have it (it's hard, but just think of it like a fantasy). The rest will take care of itself!
