Darn near 3 today

Monday, September 13, 2010

I walked 2.98 miles this morning bright and early! It was so pretty and peaceful out, I almost wished I didn't have to go home and get ready for work. Drank all my water today although I won't get my resistance training in...I'm feeling really good! emoticon

Back on track

Sunday, September 12, 2010

I had a bad few days...didn't exercise, drink all my water, had soda, didn't log anything practically...bleh.

However, I am back on track today. I walked 2.84 miles today, am drinking my water and eating okay. I feel so much better!

Yes, it is okay to falter IF you get back on track again when you stumble!

Stressful day but...

Tuesday, September 07, 2010

I had a day from hell today. Everything that could go wrong, practically did. From the get-go, it happened. But, I drank my water today and walked 2.11 miles/45 minutes!

I am pretty stoked about developing some new healthy habits!

I am gonna kick some healthy butt!

BLC Challenge

Monday, September 06, 2010

First of all, I have had a few things holding me back on my weight loss journey. I take meds which cause weight gain. I love to eat unhealthy things. I am a chocoholic especially. I don't always have the highest self esteem. I can be lazy at times. I hate exercise. I've gotten to the point with my weight combined with my height and a few medical issues where it actually hurts to work out, as in joints hurt, etc. I am over 40...hello!

The biggest issue with me though is ME. Anytime I've ever lost weight it has been easy for me. I did it in unhealthy ways or even unrealistic ways but it worked. Not this time. This frustrates me and I guess you'd say I get in my own way on this road to health.

I see myself at the end of the BLC Challenge as a healthier person. I intend to actually work this time and stick with it. My now is a chubby unhealthy 40 something mom with an unhealthy daughter. My future is a healthier mom who is a great example to her almost teenager. I see myself in single digit clothing.

I see myself as attractive in the future to men who aren't into "chubbies".

GOALS

Lose 12 or more pounds.
Fit into my last winter's clothes or have them be too big.
Be a great example to my daughter.
Have more energy.
Be attractive to look at when I examine myself.
Gain a sense of accomplishment.

I weight 172
I am 5'2"
Waist: 36.5
Hips: 44.5
Chest: 40
Thighs: 25

I wear a size 12-14 or L/XL

I get winded very easily. I live in a third story building and my legs kill me going upstairs. I haven't worked out yet so I don't know how many reps yet.

The unhealthy habit I want to change is eating when I wake up in the middle of the night.

Well there ya go! My first mini challenge!

    There are many of us who have been (and still are) in your shoes. It isn't easy, but with determination you can do it! I started walking whenever I could, and now walk at least 12 miles a week. It's something you could do with your daughter, as well as involve her in making healthy meals by making Spark recipes. get her to help you by being your weight loss buddy and maybe she'll start getting healthier too! My daughter and I still look for recipes we can try, and take other recipes and make them healthier. You can do it, look over the articles, recipes and fitness workouts - the best thing is it's free! And the support is great!

Take care,
Lynn
