Day 35 and being honest

Sunday, February 06, 2011

After four months of trying to lose these four pounds, I am being honest. For four months now, my weight tracker has said 188 and I want to be honest and put the correct weight which is 192. I have been going to the gym almost everyday and just yesterday, went twice. Yesterday, I acquired a horrible sinus migraine and I took two tramadols and went straight to bed after watching a movie with my husband. Watching Black Swan was probably not the best movie to watch with what I have. I'm hungry but can't fathom eating. I feel so nauseous. emoticon

    Hope you feel better! I think maybe adjusting the tracker will subconsciously jar a new start for you - and those pounds will melt away!

Day 34 and my legs have turned into jello

Saturday, February 05, 2011

I just got home from my workout at the gym and I think I am getting better at this. The gym was packed today and I had no choice but to face the elliptical. My legs feel like rubber. I only did 5 min/.40 of it but that was enough to make my legs feel like jello. I then got on the treadmill and finished the rest of my mile. So I did all together 1.32 in 23.55min. emoticon emoticon Not bad eh? I know I can't beat my daughter who is 13 and does cross country and can finish in 11 minutes, but I'm also 3 times older than her. I am considering going back later because I hated having to wait for a treadmill. Elliptical is evil! emoticon Tomorrow is Superbowl Sunday and yes I bought chips for the kids. We are also having some ham. I will try not to take in too much salt. That is another evil one too. Everyone out there, be civil to each other tomorrow. I know how I can get carried away when football season is on. emoticon

Day 33 and an hour and 15 min left

Friday, February 04, 2011

So, today I had gone to the gym and did my treadmill and I did 30min and 1.4 miles. I think I knocked off 2 min from yesterday. This afternoon, it was karate class for my daughter and from there, I had gone with my twins to a cheer-leading exhibition that my daughter was in for many years before she became a cheerleader for her school. It's always nice to feel welcomed even though you are no longer involved in the organization. I was a cheer coach for four years for them. It was nice to cheer for her old team. This is a picture of my twin girls and me at the bleachers.


Day 32 and 11 minutes left of it

Thursday, February 03, 2011

The saga continues on the water heater situation. We finally got it, but our problem is that Home Depot had told us that once the service is done, we are to take the receipt and get our Military discount off of the payment. Well, husband went to do that and now they are denying it. emoticon My husband has only Friday to get this resolved. He has been off all week so he can deal with this nonsense. Tonight, my second son was a part of the Cabaret. It was his first time he sang solo in front of an audience and they were being graded for it because it is their mid-term grade on the line. What a way to put pressure on the kids, eh? Anyways, some of the kids need to find a tuner, at least three of them can't sing at all. My son sang Send in the Clowns. For his voice that he has, it worked out very well. emoticon Oh, one more thing, today I did 1.5 miles in 32 minutes. emoticon

Just 6 minutes late for my day 32

Wednesday, February 02, 2011

Yesterday, I had a very challenging day. I had planned to go to the gym early but my husband asked if I can wait and go with him later that night and I obliged with that. After that, I took my daughter to her karate and her Master instructor is well known to go over the timeline. The clock is right in front of him and I wanted to get out of there since I had agreed to go with my hubby to the gym. He realizes that he is 5 min over and he kept on talking until he was 15 min over. I was not happy. I had planned to cook dinner, Chicken cacciatore. I had planned to make it and buy a few ingredients I knew I don't have, but that didn't work. Plan B, I got home and made stir fry chicken with broccoli. I didn't have a chance to eat dinner until I got home from our workout. I must say, that was damn good! Pardon my language. Oh, before I forget, I did 38 minutes on the treadmill and 1.7 miles. Pretty soon, I'll be running on the treadmill.

    Way to go on the workout! That stinks about the karate instructor. My husband has the same problem w/ the head coach at junior wrestling (he is also a coach). Have a great day!
