Yes Indeed-eeee, Happy Hump Day for MEEEE!

Wednesday, November 11, 2009

emoticonFirst off I would like to thank all our past and present military members serving proudly for our country and protecting my loved ones. HUAAAAA!

emoticonWeigh in was today and I lost 0.6 of a lb. emoticon I'm very glad the number didn't go up. I don't think I've ever been this excited about one of my weigh ins. lol

emoticonToday was also a great day because I got to work out with my bestie! We never see each other anymore! I absolutely love when I'm able to workout with her because I always seem to workout longer when I'm with her. I did 25 mins on the treadmill and then did 10 mins on the bike. Hopefully we'll be able to workout with each other every wednesday :] And btw, can I just say that my bestie looks absolutely amazing and is doing a friggin fantabulous job! keep it up bestie!

emoticonLastly, I just got done doing Day 28 of 30 DS! I almost didn't do it but I was like, "NOOO!!!!! YOU ARE GOING TO MEET YOUR GOAL AND FINISH THIS BEFORE YOU LEAVE FRIDAY AFTERNOON!" So, TWO MORE DAYS LEFT OF SHRED!!!! The end is almost finally here!!! YAYYYYYYY!

emoticonHope everyone has a great rest of the week :]

    Great job!!! I tried the 30 day shred, but I don't work out so well with Jillian yelling at me. LOL! I could definitely feel the burn though.

You're almost there! Only 2 more days!

The Results Are In...

Monday, November 09, 2009

My doctor finally called me today with my lab results. I'm perfectly fine. Nothing is wrong with me. The only thing that showed up was a possible UTI and I don't even have any signs or symptoms for it. So, my lack of wanting to do nothing and just wanting to sleep was from all my stress. I guess that's a good thing in a way. lol. I just have to have follow up labs drawn at the beginning of the year. emoticon

I'm not going to reach my goal of being done with Shred by tomorrow. But I'm doing Day 26 tonight! The plan is to be done by Friday, November 13, before I leave for the weekend. Wednesday I have a workout date with Tasha! I'm so excited cause we never see each other anymore. I hate being a big kid sometimes :[

Hope everyone has a great week! It's almost Thanksgiving.... YAYYYY!!! emoticon

    Glad to hear everything is fine physically. I hope you can find yourself some serious stress relief and get yourself back into a groove.

I did 30DS for the first time this morning. Have you done it daily? I was thinking maybe 2 or 3 times a week. Daily seems like it would be a lot. How did you work it?

Getting back in the ZONE!

Sunday, November 01, 2009

emoticonSo, I've been sitting here doing some thinking and I've decided that I really just need to get back on track and lose this weight and get back to a healthy lifestyle. I've had a lot of things that have been going on the past couple months that I have let get in my way. I shouldn't have let it get in my way but it did. But I've come to realize that there is nothing else I can do about the situation and to just get on with taking care of myself. So, since its the first day of the new month I am going to start all over and make some goals.

emoticon*GOALS*
-count calories
-finish my last 7 days of 30 DS by 11/10/09
-go to the school gym after classes on mondays and wednesdays
-look up recipes (I wish I liked to cook cause it would probably make it easier for me to want to do this. lol.)
-control my friggin cravings!!!!! (my worst thing)

These are my goals that I can think of right now. I'm going to do this. I HAVE TO and I CAN! I might have to tweak some stuff cause there might be scheduling issues that are going to happen. NO MORE EXCUSES though. It's going to get DONE!

emoticonThanks soooooooo much to all my wonderful Sparkfriends. They know who they are. Yall really do keep me going :]

emoticon


emoticonbtw...I haven't gotten any results back. I called Friday but come to find out they close the office early. So, I'll be giving them a call tomorrow. Thanks for all the thoughts and concerns.

    We are all here for ya girl! I know how it is to get frustrated, but I have come to learn that I cannot compare myself to others. I am me and it's different for everybody. If I lose 2 lbs./mo, that is 2 lbs that I didn't have before. Like you always tell me...WE GOT THIS!!!

    You can always get back on track. the beginning of the month is great for momentum. About looking up recipes, if you don't really like to cook, this could become a major roadblock. Try just putting foods that you like together and go from there. Or look up recipes once a week for the entire week and try to stick to 5 ingredients. That tends to help. Good luck.. I know you can do it.

Dr. Appointment

Tuesday, October 27, 2009

I went to the doctor's this morning. We played questions and answers. She is having me get bloodwork done. She thinks it could be my thyroid or I could be anemic since my diet has changed since I'm trying to lose weight. She's also checking to make sure I don't have mono because my tonsils were enlarged and I have a history of mono and strep. So, tomorrow morning before I go to school I'm headed to get my bloodwork done. I'm crossing my fingers and hoping by the end of the day I'll have answers! Thanks for all the conerns :]

Come back please :[

Saturday, October 24, 2009

The past couple of weeks I have lost all motivation to lose weight, work out, and watch what I eat. I know I want to lose weight so I have no idea why I have lost all my motivation for it. I see all my Spark friends doing an amazing job and keeping up with it so then I'm like, "Come on, Ash!!! What the heck is wrong with you?!!!?" I just want my motivation to come back cause I was only 3 lbs away from my 10lb loss mark and now I'm pretty sure it's over 3 lbs now. uggggghhhhh....come back to me motivation! pretty please!!! no whip cream or cherry on top though. lol.

    Try to just get 10 minutes of exercise in. 10 minutes...just 10 minutes! Or challenge yourself to eat one fruit per day. Just one! Somehow knowing I don't have to do much makes it easier for me. Hope that helps!

    Motivation is what gets you started. Habit is what keeps you going. Make a U turn and get up and do it cause we have to, cause we are committed, cause we deserve this, cause we are disciplined, becasue we CAN. emoticon

    When I get discouraged or down, wanna know what I do? I picture Jillian Michaels spitting on me and calling me a maggot- making me get on the treadmill and put out more!

OR

I just watch the cooking show while I'm on the treadmill and that helps me to stay on the damn thing longer..ahh-hah!

It will get better. We ALL go thru funks. Just hang in there and don't give up completly!

    I totally know how you feel. I was like 2 lbs away there at one time from my 10lb lose. Now I'm like 5 or more away. We just gotta get back up and keep going. I'm pretty much starting over this week. It's hard, but it will be worth it. I hope all your tests come back good.

STINA6584 10/25/2009 10:30AM

    It'll come back. For now, just try to stick with the basics. Track/ write down what you're eating even if you're going over, and try to add at least a little physical activity every day - even if it's just a quick walk around the block. A little bit can go a long way.

    ugh... I just got over this. I stopped tracking food and exercise and found it hard to get out and go for a walk. And then I saw that I wasn't losing any weight and I had to get myself refocused. Pretty much I had to kick my butt into gear and start tracking everything and going outside or to the gym. I feel great now. I just had to change a few things, I started measuring everything again and switched up my walk/run route. That was the second time in 5 months that I completely gave up on being healthy, so this time it was much easier to recognize the signs and deal with them. Just keep telling yourself that all the time and energy that you have invested in yourself is worth it because its good for you and you love yourself. Sounds corny, but its true.

    i'm right there with ya. between my TOM and vacations with the fam, my motivation has been declining for a few wks, too. i've decided to take it one small goal at a time. i'm using the holidays as mile-markers, so i made goals to reach by Halloween, Thanksgiving and Christmas. i'm hoping that working on smaller goals one at a time will help get me back on track. good luck to you, we CAN do it!!

    Ash, stop and think about what has changed. I read your prior blog and it seems that this has been going on for a little while. Go look in the mirror and say to yourself, "I am going to do this for me." I deserve this and I want this. You have got to also learn to forgive yourself for falling off, just pick yourself back up and start again. You are a strong person I am sure or you wouldn't had gotten this far. So, come on now, get with it and let's go. Stay strong and keep on Sparking. Have a great weekend and just do it.

    Believe me we all go through times we feel like we lose our motivation. I think you just need to sit down and write a plan (try to focus on what you did before to lose weight.) Once you get back into a routine, you will get used to things and continue losing weight. You can do this girl!

    We all go through what you're going through now. Sometimes it lasts a day, sometimes a week, sometimes ... ugh! ... even longer. Try to work your motivation back into your life by focusing on one or two things. Maybe today your focus will be to stay in your calorie range AND make sure those calories come from the right combination of carbs, proteins and fats. Tomorrow focus on your exercise. Just 15 - 20 minutes of something. When it all starts coming together your motivation will come back and keep you going from there.
