Scale Scandal...

Wednesday, July 10, 2013

My scale is a mean, and cruel little item. Despite me working out daily and keeping a good eye on what I have been eating, I am not seeing a change. Got to 5 pounds and then stopped. Not the greatest.

I think I'm done with my scale for a bit. Although it is a very nice looking scale ( it is wooden and gorgeous emoticon ) Its not to good for my ego. He best watch out. He wouldn't like to be like my last scale.. I got rid of him because I didn't like what it was telling me either. Thats what I do. Replace. Watch out. ( In fairness it was truly broken, I didn't weigh 150 and I know it! My pants still fit from be being 127 pounds last year...nice try, jerk. )

Even so, I have lost an inch on my waist, and I feel stronger. I can do 100+ squats, I can do 50 push us ( That is huge, I was a struggle to get through 10. I do 10 then 5 mountain climbers and do that 5 times. I consider that a big deal ) I can do 100 triceps dips.

It is just frustrating. I understand it isn't all about the number but c'mon, give me SOMETHING! ( or show me less of something! )

  Well I heard somewhere you eat 13 times (in calories) your weight. For example, if you are 200 eat 2600 calories...and when you reduce to 195*13 calories...make sure keep your workout going

Ive Had Enough

Thursday, June 20, 2013

So the title sound vicious but it is a good type. I have had enough. Enough starting over. Enough " I cant". Enough "I wish". Just enough.

I'm starting this for the last time and refuse to stop, I need this.

  I know 've started and stopped so many times myself. I told myself this a little while ago. No more " I can't" Because I CAN! and so can you! If you ever need a push let me know! I could use a push now and then too to keep me on track. Perhaps we can help each other? emoticon

So I came across this picture as I was looking for motivation. I came to realize that I very well may be that scared little girl with terror in her eyes....

    That's me! I am so psyched about this workout and terrified at the same time. People fitter than me are quitting on the FIT TEST and I'm going, oh crap, what did I sign up for here... I think I'm going to dig deep but also take a page from Tony Horton and "do my best and forget the rest" because I'm not gonna let my inabilities make me quit. So I'm the little girl, only with a shotgun and I'm aiming for Shaun T. lol :)

    Great! HRMs are great. I keep a spare in the gym bag in my car just in case I'm on the road. Love how the Polar's synch up with most cardio equipment.

They're there. Sitting behind the door. Taunting. You're starving. They're amazing. So you open the door and embrace them. Loving, warm, tasty. MMMMM Girl Scout Cookies....

Maybe it is because I grew up doing GS. Maybe it is because they are soooo good. Whatever it is, they have once again found their way into my home.

They were bought when I was doing good. When I was a good weight and hadn't gained in a while. They were bought...when the hubs was home.

He loves the Tag-a-Long ones, but is he here to indulge? NO! Nowhere in sight! I cant even mail them to him ( and believe me i thought about it ). The Thin Mints,the less evil of the GSC - Chocolate, crunch, mint, pretty much an awesome combo but again, not my fault!

But then there are the Samoas. OOOOO the Samoas. Even the NAME shows they are addicting ( I want Some-moa Samoas! ) and I am addicted. I have yet to open the box. The lovely purple box. ( sorry the thin mints got me, check the nutrition charts ) BUT i avoided the 200 cal for 2 serving ones ( again i havent opened the box but there had better be only 4 in there for that calorie intake!! )

We will see how this cookie conudrum play out. I might mail them to some people as a surprise ( surprise! now your diets ruined! ). Maybe host a party and serve them ( at least i can watch them being enjoyed, right? ) Either way....I must not eat anymore of them. You tasty little morsels of love, i am going to miss you.
