Ok, It's clear that I am a true Yo-Yo

Tuesday, April 30, 2013

I mean, I'm clearly sucking at it. It's been 2 YEARS since I've been serious and I'm getting really annoyed by it. And I know I know, "If you wanna quit whining about it, just do it!" and I SHOULD! In fact my momma gave me some inspirational words (that sadly were not meant for weight loss but for something else entirely, which....I'm not gonna go into. Too depressing).

She stated how much I was incredibly stubborn. That once I put my mind to something, I get it done. No matter what anybody tells me, I just fricken do it and am dead set on seeing to the end of that objective. If she and the rest of the family think of me that way, why can't I put that perspective into losing weight? I'll be honest, I know I'm really really lazy, but I also have to face facts that I am not happy about my body. And if I ever want to improve and make myself happy again concerning this issue, I should really stick to this. I have to.

I mean I'm not good at a lot of stuff, I need a hobby besides sitting around and reading the internet, and what better way than to lose weight and get into a better shape? If I can't go to school and if I don't have a car, I might as well just buckle down and DO IT!

So I'm gonna start completely over again. Going to see through this slowly, step by step, with my ultimate goal being to complete this within 2015.

Wish me luck! emoticon

Well That Was A Quick Nap!

Monday, March 21, 2011

Hey guys, long time no see. As you can tell, I haven't been on here for a while. That's because I went down an emotional rollercoaster ride, been baking/cooking up a storm (I had culinary arts mid-terms), and having work in general getting me off track. With Lent beginning and me giving up all kinds of red meat (except fish), I decided then and there to jump-start my plans and see what I needed to do.

The major thing I need to be consistent of is exercise, so I'm starting from day 1 for the 30 Day Shred DVD. I'm gonna try and get that to work around my work/school schedule. The other is to try to eat at least 4-7 veggies/fruits a day. Basically I just need to go back to what I did before and stick with it. I can't let anything hinder me.

Let's hope this week is great for me! Daily Weigh In's every Sunday until Easter (since that'll be my short goal for now)! emoticon

  


Wow, What A Crazy Three Weeks!

Saturday, January 22, 2011

First Week:
Lost 2.3 pounds from not doing so much exercise but still on my diet. It made me weirded out.

Second Week:
Tried not working out 60 minutes and only worked out for 45 minutes three times a week and strength trained for the other three days. I stayed the same

Third Week:
I just got hired for a job and didn't know what to do with my work and school schedule. It drove me off track and I still maintained. It was a problem for me.

I ran into a problem now. There's no way I can eat 5 small meals within certain hours AND workout afterwards. I go to school in the morning until 1pm, then work for five hours after (mostly until 10pm). How can I work out for 45 minutes a day when I'm gone from 8 am to 10 pm (and that's not counting me getting up at 6am just to get ready for the day and leave at 7:15)?! I was just not gonna work out on those days and work out on the two days that I have a free day off work but my sister insisted I try. She is really insistent on me working out and eating right (which surprises me!). That makes me smile. She even offered her workout DVD to me (the Jillian Michaels 30 Day Shred)! She truly is motivating me and I love her for it, so I want to work hard for her in return. emoticon

GUH! Why does this have to be so hard to figure out?! I figured since I would be on my feet for five hours and walking around (my job is an associate at the Gap) that I could count that as my exercise, but that may not be enough. Thank goodness my diet is ok (and I decided to bring healthy veggie/fruit snacks with me whenever I have 15 minute breaks). If anybody has advice I'm open for it! Hope everybody had an easier week. emoticon

  


Food Journal

Tuesday, December 28, 2010

I usually call this my food journal, but today while I was browsing someone's Spark Page for inspiration, I saw that she stated that she kept a food journal instead of tracking her food here. I was very impressed by her (eating 9-11 servings of veggies/fruits, tracking it as a food journal and not worrying about counting calories, exercising 6 days a week) and I decided to see what was actually a food journal. I always thought it was this right here but she didn't show her food tracking in her blog. I'm probably guessing she did it in Microsoft Word, so I decided to google it and see what's up. The answers were pretty interesting!

ournal.pdf


I tried that format today and it was alright. It wasn't that great to me and I'm probably gonna try it out for a week to see how I do. If I feel stressed from writing it down from there AND from here, I'm gonna quit. If I succeed, well that's cool! My main goal wasn't from this journal but to be motivated, and it worked. She lost over a 100 pounds within a year and I hope to do that. A really good thing that stuck out was eating more veggies/fruits, and I need to improve on that. So no more eating just 2 servings of each. If I can eat at least 5-7 servings, I'm gonna be good. Let's hope I work on that well this week! emoticon

Not Feeling Up To It This Week

Thursday, December 23, 2010

Man all this cookie making and stuff close to the holidays is really making me not feel like dieting this week. Like I really do not want to log in what I eat and stuff. I know I said in my previous post that I was just going to have one sweet dessert and salty snack once a week, but I completely forgot and seemed to push it out of my mind since I'm worried over what my family wants for the holidays. I WILL step it up next week, but this week? I have a feeling I'll gain all those pounds that I lost back. emoticon

The good thing I have been consistent about is my exercise. I haven't stopped yet and tomorrow will be my last day until my regular day off. I also have been eating with my calorie range, I just haven't been good at eating my veggies and fruits...

But I'll fix that next week.
