Detox after poisoning myself

Monday, May 12, 2014

So on Easter my dad died. He and my mom live in Oklahoma and I live in Wisconsin. So I wasn't able to be with him when he passed, but I don't think that bothers me much because I remember him at home and not in a hospital. During this time I was also going through a major job change, same place just very different added responsibilities. It was and still is, a steep learning curve. All this personal havoc created an understandable soul crushing depression and I managed to undo everything I accomplished in the last 30 days. Today at work as I sat eating a piece of cake and a diet soda-my second of the day- and potato chips, it finally hit me that I was so in the wrong place. I felt like I had poisoned myself with all the garbage I was eating. Then I did a further assessment and my thighs are becoming one much closer to my knees than they were, my face is getting rounder and my black work pants are so tight they are inducing wedgies. No day is a good day if your always picking a wedgie. My little epiphany forced me to change today. I need to head back to the gym and I need to cleanse the toxins from my body.
So here's to beating soul crushing depression, detoxing and starting over.
And I am never posting another blog from my kindle. What a pain in the ass.

Progress because of the gym

Monday, March 10, 2014

So we finally joined a gym a couple of weeks ago. Why? Many reasons really, but mostly because my husband is now a full fledged have to meet his own weight loss goals before his physical in May. So now that he has been forced to walk down my path he is more motivated to help me, so I am helping both of us by making us join a gym, getting a workout planned for us and we both weigh and measure in every 5-6 weeks. We are now accountable to someone else besides ourselves. And we were not good at being accountable to each other. I could talk him out of a workout pretty easy and he was (still is) one hell of a procrastinator. Wouldn't do anything unless I basically stood on his neck and I was so done doing that, so this also takes the responsibility off of me.
I am going to try not to be one of "those people" but I did want to share my workout because I am seeing results aready and I finally got what is going to work for me.
I start with battle ropes for 30 seconds. First 20 seconds ok, next 5 getting tough, last 5, OMG is it over yet?!

Next up, TRX straps. 12 squats then 15 rows

Then its on to step ups (one foot step cause my knees said Absolutely NOT to the 2 foot) with a 10 pound kettle bell, 10x each foot individually.

Arms jelly yet? No? Good, 12 of these with 8 pound dumbbells.

And we end with these using a 10 pound ball.

Can you still breathe and talk? You can? Ok, do it all again! I am up to 3 circuits, hoping to hit 5 by the end of my 6 weeks, when I get something new to do.

It has taken me almost 18 years to get to this point of making it stick and keep going. The mid 40s are going to be my best ones yet, and man am I going to take a ton of healthy me pics when I get to my 1st goal weight!

1/6 of a pizza

Thursday, January 30, 2014

If you have ever read the serving size on a round 12" pizza, it says 1/6 of pizza. I don't know how to cut a pizza like that to get 6 equal servings. So I grabbed the largest cookie sheet I have and made my own. This is what a pizza cut into 6ths looks like. Winner!

Workoutus interruptus

Thursday, January 09, 2014

So, here I am all excited to find Billy Blanks Jr on Amazon Prime. I know my husband will be home before the end of it, but I start it anyway. Over halfway through the video he comes home, sees me working out and can't just go away and let me concentrate on the dance moves that I have never seen before since this is my first time. No, he has to say "Do you want the bad news or the bad news" I say "Did you get fired?" He says no, so I say can it wait. Then he acts all dejected and hurt because its a car issue that I can do NOTHING about tonite. I have to tell you, having to deal with his little issue during my workout doesn't help my workout. And then my jackass of a 16 year old son comes in and makes a disparaging remark about the video I am doing. Well thanks alot you butt heads, now you have totally ruined my concentration and I quit the video before the end. I am so peeved right now that these inconsiderate jerks cannot just let me do something for myself by myself without them breathing in my general direction and making comments or acting like their issues are so flipping important.
I need to lose weight, I need to work out. This is my first workout of the new year! I am 9 days into the new year and this is the first time and you have to wreck it.
I WANT MY ENDORPHINS NOW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
