Going to Georgetown (near Austin)

Saturday, March 19, 2011

I have been surviving Spring Beak without gaining weight. I would like to lose a little just so that I know that it can be done. So, after getting through a movie and 6 hours at Schlitterbahn, I can say that an Austin trip can be done without gaining. I am going to do a Turbo Fire cardio kickboxing video before I go. I hope that you are doing as well during your Spring Break.


I am so close to my goal weight

Sunday, February 27, 2011

I am so close to my goal of 140 pounds. I keep hearing that the last 10 pounds are the hardest to lose. So, I got the beach body workout dvds to avert that problem. This will change up my workout routine so that I have to burn more calories! I will let you know if it works. The workouts look fun and they don't require a lot of space to do them. So, I should be doing my first session in the next few days. It looks like cardio kickboxing with some silly moves added in. I also get to do the strengthening with resistance bands. I have a whole set of those from my rehabilitation of my shoulder. I am also doing the virtual 5k - walk jog style. Between the two, I will certainly get there!

    Hey - our "goal weight" is approximately the same - and because you are enthusiastic about staying on track to "get the job done" I'm going to watch carefully and try to follow in your footsteps. This WILL be our year - right?

I'm getting close!

Tuesday, February 22, 2011

I am so excited as I weigh in this morning. I am now only 155 pounds. That means that I have lost 20 pounds and I have only 20 pounds to go! I am determined, more then ever to stay motivated to reach my goal by summer! I want to wear a bikini when we go on vacation to Destin, Florida this year. I can't wait to start trying them on!

Below the 160 mark!

Saturday, February 12, 2011

I finally did it! I got below 160 pounds. I am very determined now to keep the downward trend. I am so close to my goal of 135 pounds, that I can smell it! It helps me to think of mini weight goals in the meantime. My next mini goal is to make it to 150 pounds. When I think of my weight loss in mini chunks, it makes the process very doable. I don't get overwhelmed with the idea of trying to lose a huge amount. So, here go the next 10 pounds!

My husband is sabatoging my efforts!

Monday, January 31, 2011

What to do? I am working very hard to get healthier and get to a healthier weight. My husband is constantly nagging me about what I am eating. He doesn't think that I should be so concerned about my weight. At least not enough to leave me alone so that I can do what is working for me. I am doing a very basic diet right now since I found out that what I am eating could be affecting my sleep by inflaming my gut. I found out from my doctor that while I may not be allergic to some foods, I may be sensitive to them. Some foods may cause my stomach and intestines to be unhappy enough to make sleep a questionable goal. I am avoiding sugar, salt and yeast. The goal is to stay on this basic diet for a while and then keep a food journal as I incorporate one food at a time to see what doesn't agree with my stomach. I have slept so blissfully over the last two weeks on this diet of fruit, veggies and meat.

After a stressful weekend of dealing with my husband, I succumbed and ate some salsa and corn chips. I then had a rotten night as I belched and dealt with a sour stomach all night! I am still feeling it right now as I write this blog! I don't know if it is the corn, the salsa or the combination that my stomach doesn't like. I am getting back on track so that my stomach will like me better. I just wish I knew how to get my husband to leave me alone for a while.

    Changes can be hard for our husbands! They can be worried that we are changing and going to leave them out or leave them in general. My DH has struggled with this for the past nearly 6 months. Just reassuring him and letting him know that I need to do this for me has helped.. He will get past it and who knows in a few months he could be embracing what your doing and joining in. Mine finally is, until this remember this is not about him, but about you and getting healtier:)

    Just tell him this is what the Dr. has recommended you do!
Tell him you appreciate him thinking you don't need to watch what you eat, but in order to find out what is that is affecting you enough to interupt your sleep, the dr has recommended you cut some things out of your diet that could be causing the problem and that he wants you to journal it..maybe that will help!
Good luck, and i hope you find out what is causing your restless nights.
