Weigh in was this morning for WW. I had a 1.6 lb gain which I wasn't surprised about at all. I ate absolutely horrible the whole week. I took a long enough "break" so it's time to refocus and remember why I'm doing this!!
- Goals for September
1. Continue to lose 0.5 - 1 lb a week
1. Log food to keep track of points...ive been slacking and what do ya know...I gained...
2. Look up more new recipes and try them
1. Make workout calendar
2. Start Ripped in 30 - Finish by the end of September
3. Zumba or Run twice a week
4. On days I work do a bodyrocktv workout or at least push ups and sit ups
so I will...
1. Look HOTT at my cousin's wedding in 5 weeks
2. Look GORGEOUS on my wedding day which is 13 months away
3. Love my body image and be CONFIDENT
4. Feel comfortable in my own skin
5. Live a healthier lifestyle
This past weekend was a very emotional and stressful weekend for me. It was the end of my 6 year enlistment with the Air Force Reserves. I decided to not reenlist because I was failing the waist measurement part on my physical fitness test and since I failled my last semester of Nursing school I made the decision that I needed to get rid of something in my crazy life. It was a great six years and I hope after things calm down and i lose some weight once and for all that I may be able to join again. I met some of the most amazing people while I was in the Air Force and being an Air Force Medic made me realize that I wanted to be a nurse. It's so weird to think that I wont get back into my uniform again for awhile.
My AMAZING wing[wo]men :]
So with that kind of weekend came a crappy weekend eating wise. Saturday we had a unit picnic. I told myself to eat in moderation but I totally pigged out. Then Sunday we had a pizza party and ice cream cake since me and another one of the troops were leaving. So, I'm trying to get back on track. It's been a little difficult since I have no groceries. I'm getting food tomorrow though!!
At the last WW weigh in I only lost 0.4 lbs. It's better than a gain but I knew the time would come where the pounds wouldn't drop as fast as they did in the beginning. I am still 2 lbs away from my 10 lb loss mark!! SO FRIGGIN CLOSE!!!! I was thinking once I hit my 10 loss mark that I won't go to WW anymore. I'm not quite sure yet. I keep going back and forth because it keep me more accountable since I'm paying $12 and weighing myself infront of a complete stranger. But then it irritates me that I'm actually paying someone just to see how much I weigh lol I haven't been able to stay for the meeting because of time conflict. I figured I got all the tools I need now and I can make my own food logs like they have. I'm just going to have to be the one that is accountable with it and actually stick with it. I guess we'll just see how things go.
Saturday our family got a new dog :] Her name is Tola. She's three years old and she's a rotty/lab mix. She's so cute and loving. Sometimes I think she doesn't realize how big she is because she just plows over our little dog and shell step on our feet and bump into us lol I think our little dog is the one having the hardest time adjusting with the change.
Abs loves her doggies
Hmmm...who do you think will win? lol
Abbie starts 3rd grade tomorrow! Just craziness...it seriously feels like I had her not too long ago. Where does the time go? She's so excited to go back to school...well see how long that excitement lasts lol She said the funniest thing to me the other day...
Abs - "Did you watch Honey I Shrunk the Kids when you were little?"
Me - "Yes. DiDi (my sister) and I used to watch it all the time."
Abs - "Was it in color then?"
Me - "Yes dear." burst out laughing
It's so funny that she thinks I am that much older than her...fyi... I am only 16 years older than her lol
I went to Zumba last night for the first time in I don't know how long!!!! It felt good to go and I'll be going tomorrow!! I've been going on walks but I need to start running. I didn't make my workout calendar but I'll get right on it for September. Gotta step things up in the workout department since I like food so much lol
Hope everyone has a great week!! End August in a BANG!! :]
Since I started Weight Watchers. I can definitely see a change in how I'm eating. I still have my binging moments but I've been getting much better at it. Since my last WW weigh in I have lost 3 lbs! WOOT WOOT! When I eat I get full easily and I'm listening to my hunger cues more. I actually STOP eating and dont continue to shove food in my face. I snack on fruits and veggies as often as I can and I don't over indulge with sweets. I made a really yummy dinner tonight...stuffed shells... i used ground meat instead of chicken though...didn't have any chicken lol
Since starting Weight Watchers I have lost 7 lbs in 2 weeks!! I hope to lose at least 0.5 -1 lb a week. If I stay consistent enough I should be able to get to my goal weight by the end of January so I think I should just say that by my 26th birthday (Feb 10, 2013) I would like to be at my goal weight of 145 lbs. Then from that point on I will have to continue to be consistent and maintain my weight for my wedding on October 12, 2013 and hopefully by then I will finally be able to maintain my healthy lifestyle change.
I absolutely hate grocery shopping and ever since I've joined WW it seems like I've been going every few days. I'm usually going just to get more fresh fruits and veggies but I still hate it lol I know I have to do it though so looks like I just gotta suck it up and deal with it. I saw a lasagna zuchini I want to try and make so I need to get all the ingredients for that. I have to go on Pinterest and find some recipes (which there are plenty of) and then write down all the ingredients needed and get them at the store so I can actually make the food. I had my tuna peppers again for dinner last night....soooo good :]
Today starts the day of a challenge I'mdoing on facebook with Tasha's (TASHISNOQUIITER) coworkers. The girl that put the challenge together is a representative for Beach Body (Turbo Jam, Insanity, P90x, the shakes, etc) and she put this 30 day challenge together. I remember doing a FB challenge like this before and I actually lost 5 lbs within that 30 days so I figured what better way to try and get me back into my work out routine. I really need to make my work out calendar for the month so I'll do that this evening or tomorrow morning. So maybe if I keep up with my eating and work out I'll actually start to lose more and tone up!!
This Wednesday I hope to go to a possible venue site with my best friends (the bridesmaids) so cross your fingers for me!! My friend from work is getting married the end of August and she told me to swing my her venue the week of her wedding because its a privately owned area and they dont advertise it. I've seen pictures and it's beautiful there. I'll just have to see if it's cheaper cause I'd have to rent the table and chairs for that place. I really want to try on wedding dresses too so we'll see when I actually want to go do that.
School is about to start back up!! My daughter starts 3rd grade in 2 weeks (so hard to believe) and then I start school back up in 3 weeks. I'm so NOT ready to go back but the classes I'm taking aren't as hard core as my nursing classes. I'll get a little break but not much. And then hopefully January 2013 I'll be back in the nursing program and finish up my last semester of nursing school AGAIN and FINALLY graduate and get my big girl job.
Hope everyone has a great month and keep up the great work!! WE CAN DO THIS!!!!
