Its been a while

Tuesday, January 14, 2014

It's January 14th and I have been so worried that I have fallen off the wagon so to speak. I was dong so well even through the holidays. I maintained my 40lb weight loss and have been increasing my exercise. The past week has been rough and I don't know why? I started back craving my sugar and eating candy once again. I even convinced my husband to make us margaritas last night. I don't know why this happens to me. I have come such a long way and went through so much with my Diverticulitius attack. I finally felt I was getting back on track and my pain has gone away. I don't know why the craving for candy has come back so strong. I throw out the rest of the candy that I bought yesterday and I am going to do my best to stay away from it.

I am going to Hawaii the very end of March for my anniversary. I want to look and feel the best that I can. i don't know why I am trying to sabatoge myself. I have to keep going and forget the minor set back. I put back on 5lbs. Very earned 5lbs. I have a wedding coming up the end of January as well and need to be able to fit into a dress that isn't in double digits. I have to keep going.

Well off to the gym for me...

  Keep on working! The time most people quit is about now when it's cold and gloomy out. Spring is soon coming and you'll be gorgeous!

Had a bit a a set back

Sunday, October 27, 2013

I have been following my diet plan since starting my new healthy habits since the beginning of September. I have not been able to get my stamina up like I would like but have been plugging away. A couple weeks ago I was feeling awful with all over body aches and swollen glands. I went to my doctor and got some shots for infection. I was down for about a week and was not able to really exercise. Last Sunday I started having the worst stomach pain in my lower left side. I did manage my Zumba class but it was very hard to get through it. As the week went on I was not able to go back to the gym and finally went back to my doctor. She ordered an ultrasound then and emergency CT scan. It turns out that I have diverticulitis. I have pockets in my colon that food particles got trapped in that have become inflamed and infected. It is such a painful condition and can be dangerous if not treated properly. I was put on a liquid diet for 3 days then have to go on soft solids. After that I have to completely revamp my diet. No seeds, nuts or popcorn. Also I have to stick with high fiber foods and be aware of anything that causes stomach issues as I reintroduce foods to my diet. I have been a bit depressed as the pain has been really knocking me out. I am going to keep plugging away and hope I have the strength to go to the gym tomorrow. It is hard as I have no energy from not being able to eat but I am going to try.

Hanging in there

Sunday, September 29, 2013

I have really been doing great since starting my new healh plan. I am trying not to look in the past. I went biking at the beach yesterday for the first time since getting my bike months ago. It felt great to be out there. I have to stop myself from knocking myself down for not being able to rollerblade or jog at the beach like so many were doing. I am trying to take this day by day. I have set a goal for myself to to as toned and healthy by the end of March as if my husbands health holds up we are going to Hawaii for our anniversary. I don't want to feel self conscious when I go. I have to stop knocking myself down about gaining weight and stopping my gym workouts in the past. I feel like I have put my life on hold turning down events and outings because I feel so bad about myself. I will keep going on my journey and I will try to stop looking back.


Bad but not over

Thursday, September 19, 2013

Wow!! I have not weighed myself in ages as I didn't want to deal with it but finally weighed in today. I can't believe I weigh 174. This is the highest weight I have ever been and I have been off sugar and working out for almost 2 weeks now. I am glad I didn't weigh myself sooner as I would never have gotten it together. My goal seems so far away now as I want to be around 120lbs at 5'2 that is good for me. I have over 50lbs to lose as I suspected. I am not going to let this number control me though. I am going to keep plugging away.

  Thanks Deborah,

It is a long journey that I have been on before so I know it is worth it to cross the finish line. I will keep plugging away too.

Tired and Hungry

Thursday, September 19, 2013

Well I am still hanging in there but I am so sore and so tired and very hungry. I know it is hard the first few weeks to get into a routine. I just want my stamina to come back up. I don't remember feeling this tired. I did the treadmill this morning and my muscles are so sore. I am going to keep going and hope there is light at the end of the tunnel.
