Fresh Start

Tuesday, January 01, 2013

Ok, here's the rundown. I started out at 263 in August 2009. I lost about 50 lbs by Dec 2010. Then I gained 25 back. In 2011, I lost that 25 plus 38 lbs. In 2012 I gained 50 lbs then lost 20 of them.
It's been a bumpy ride. In 2013, I plan to lose the other 30 lbs i lost plus at least 12 to make it to my 100 lb weight loss goal. I plan to exercise at least 5 times per week for at least 30 minutes, drink at least 8 cups of water every day, eat at least 5 servings of fruits and veg per day, strength train at least 3 times per week, and not let ANYTHING or ANYONE derail me.
I'm gonna allow myself a little leeway. I'm gonna have a treat once in a while, take a day off from exercise if I'm too busy or stressed, take a little ME time... and not feel guilty about it (or at least I'm gonna try not to feel too guilty about it). And I'm not gonna give up. So what if I gain a pound or two. It comes off ALMOST as easy as it goes on.
Hope it's a great year in 2013!
HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!

  


SUMMER!?!

Saturday, June 02, 2012

I'm finally off for summer! Now I can devote 2+ hours a day to my exercise. I have time to cook healthy meals. I can start my Supreme 90 DVDs again and get ripped (hopefully!). I had all these glorious plans...
And then I got my kids report cards! My daughter failed a class so she has to take summer school starting Monday! That lasts 1 month, then we have vacation, a brief 2 week break and then Band Camp starts! So much for my summer plans!
I'm still gonna try to fit in as much cooking and exercising as possible, but it'll be a juggling act. I love my kids, but they sure keep me hopping!

    Kids can sure keep you hopping but its all worth it. After both my kids were grown I was looking through some things one day and run up on an old planner. It was so full of stuff almost every day had something written on it and I wondered "How in the world did I ever manage it all??!" but still wish I could go back to those days, miss my kids being at home. My son still lives here but is independent other than having his own home and he's gone a lot and its not the same. A dream I had a few nights ago kinda sums up how I wish life COULD be I dreamed that I had just moved into a big brick house with open fields all around my kids were still teens and at home but I had my grandkids there too and the weirdest thing Captain Kangaroo was our neighbor!!!!!
Enjoy these days while they last cause they will too soon pass.

    You already know the "Juggling" routine--all moms have to! You can get your exercise in. Remember, you've got to take care of yourself too!

Wishing you a fabulous summer.

Isn't summer supposed to be over?!

Thursday, September 29, 2011

I've had a glorious couple weeks. I've been walking after work in the park, listening to the birds and watching the butterflies and squirrels. It's bee awesome weather and I've been taking full advantage. I've even been watching the weather forecast to make sure it was gonna be a nice week for walking. Well, they lied! It wasn't supposed to be above 90 all week, but when I left work today it was 100! I guess Mother Nature didn't get the memo that SUMMER'S OVER!
Oh well, I'll do an evening walk, even though I have my Curves and Supreme 90 tonight. It looks like it's gonna be a busy evening!

Busy, Busy, Busy!

Tuesday, September 27, 2011

It's been SOOO busy since schoo started. I'm back at work and the kids are back in school. I've got a middle schooler and a high schooler, so their extracirriculars are keeping me busy all evening, plus working full time and trying to find time working out... it's exhausting! Last year I only worked 4 hours a day. This year I'm working 7! Big difference in my energy level (plus I have to get up at 6 frakking A.M.!), and it's hard to find time to eat at work. I've been trying to find time to walk and do my Supreme 90 DVDs, but I haven't been very consistent with either. I have been going to Curves and doing Zumba, but it's only twice a week. I've only lost 5 lbs in the last month! Not good, considering I put on 15 lbs over the summer that I gotta hurry up and take back off. I'm not even back to where I ended last school year! It's very frustrating, but I like my job, and I'm liking the bigger paycheck. I'm gonna continue to fit in exercise and eating where I can and hope for the best!
