33.22 days to go... (long distance lamenting)

Tuesday, November 13, 2012

...till I see my sweetie. This long distance thing is really tough sometimes. But when we are together, it's totally worth it. On average, we see each other every other month. Which is not too bad for CA/LA. I'm very excited to have a whole week with him. Even though he'll be at work three of those days, and I'll be working remotely, I know it will still be great. We really need this down time together.

12 days down and 33 to go. I set myself a challenge of working out every day at least 30 mins, from Nov. 1, until Dec. 16. I have a business trip to Alabama the second week of December, then I'm home for three days for my sister's graduation for her Masters, then to Louisiana. Aaaahhhh!!! I know it would be so easy to during this crazy season to let my healthy habits slip, but I'm making up my mind right now to stick with them. I can do a workout in a hotel room, and when I'm in LA. But I will be giving myself a couple of days off when we go to Biloxi. Can't wait!

I hope everyone else has made of their mind not to let the holidays be an excuse to slack on your healthy habits!

Having an excellent week!

Friday, November 09, 2012

After putting the Halloween candy debacle behind me, I've worked out every single day this week, 60 mins plus. I don't know how this is possible, but I'm down 7 lbs. I'm sure a lot of it is water, but it's still nice to see the numbers come down. I hope I can keep this up until I see my boyfriend in a month!

Year #34

Thursday, September 27, 2012

Sitting here thinking about the fact that I turn 34 in a couple weeks. My life is certainly not where I thought it would be when I reached my mid-30's, but this past year has been great - I met a wonderful man. I have decided that I've had enough of this up and down with weight loss (Lost 35 lbs, but I seem to be back and forth with about 10 of those). I'm done! I am going to make this my best year ever. I am determined to reach my goal weight by the time I turn 35. And who knows what other wonderful things life may bring my way? emoticon

That is so great that you met a nice man - you both look so happy in your picture.

We all go up and down just got to make sure it stays down - which is also my problem - but we can do it.

have a great weekend emoticon

Is it over yet???

Tuesday, August 21, 2012

I am starting to wonder if at some point things will return to normal. Where to start... this summer has been hectic to say the least. I moved, helped move my parents, my very ill aunt passed away a week and a half ago, my bf's grandmother passed away on Friday so I had to cancel my trip to go see him, the stress at work has increase exponentially due to stupid people that can't do their job... One thing after another. I have not been working out, and have been eating horribly. I really need to snap myself out of it and just do it. My brain knows I will feel sooo much better when making healthy choices, but the emotional part of me just wants to make unhealthy choices and eat and be lazy. I feel like I'm drowning and can't get my head above water :(

    I am so sorry to hear about the passing of your friend's grandmother and your aunt. Difficult to handle.

Also the stress at work makes it more difficult.

You will get a handle on things - just take it a day at a time and you will be ready to get back on track.

We are here for you :) emoticon

  I know what you are going through in a sense.. I moved back in February, while studying to acquire my mutual funds certification.. Plus starting a new job, it was hectic and I slid off the bandwagon too.. but now I am back at it and more commited than ever.. and I started by tracking... everything.. if i wasnt logging onto sparkpeople i was writing down what i ate and how it made me feel.. or vice versa.. more importantyl i was writing down how i was feeling, why i was feeling that way and was made me gravitate towards that bad food choice and it helped... so did my goal of completing my first half marathon.. in 3 weeks.... YOU GO THIS GIRL! I KNOW YOU DO!. Just think that tomorrow is a new day and it can start and end anyway you want it to.. you just need to decide!

    Take it step by step girl. Sorry for all the sh!t being thrown your way recently, but it will get better, I know it. J ust try and focus on nutrition/tracking for now, then incorporate a couple exercises a week, water, etc. Little by little. You will get back there!

    If you can put one thing back under your control, you might feel a little better. Even just a little thing like drinking only water until things even out, or no sugar... I find when I feel like things are out of control, if I focus on the things I do have control over, and just roll along with the other things, life starts to even out. Good luck to you, and please accept my condolences for the passing of your and your bf's loved ones. emoticon
