Well that's gonna leave a mark.

Sunday, September 13, 2009

TODAY was awful. I could not stop eating. I have not had a day this bad since I restarted in June. I was not going to post my food for today because I was so embarrassed, but decided that I needed that little kick into reality. UGH and weigh in day is tomorrow, this should be great! The last two days I have not felt like exercising even though I have been doing really well this week and even kicked it up a notch. I had class all day today and seemed like I was hungry hungry hungry. I have no excuses for today, I just didn't care I guess. Fatty food sounded so good and now I get to pay for it. I used to have days like this and I would eat and eat but I am certain the calories would be much more than what I posted today.......cake, cookies, whatever I could get my hands on. At least I didn't go THAT far with it.

UGH just so disappointed in myself right now. I guess I will pay for it this week.

Thanks for listening to my ramble.

    Sometimes your body does weird things but maybe with the higher calorie count it boosted your metabolism a bit. It's strange I know. Have you ever tried 'calorie cycling?' I haven't yet but am very interested in it, it tricks your body by going on the low end of your calorie limits and then on different days you're on the high end. There is a Sparker that does it can't remember who...it works for her!!

    Isn't it weird, I finally had a loss after yesterday's eating, my weight had just been fluctuating around 196ish for the last 2 weeks! I had one DAY it was around 194 but that was because I was sick and wasn't eating hardly anything, came right back LOL.

Thanks for reading! emoticon

    Don't be embarrassed...we all have our bad days. Just jump right back on that wagon!
I know what you mean about feeling like you just can't stop eating. Way to go on staying accountable!

You can do this!!! I'm rooting you on!!!

    There must be something in the air. I have felt like a bottomless pit (or maybe a garbage disposal) the past couple of days. I am so hungry for sweet things which is weird because that's not normally what I crave. Good luck and hang it there...hopefully these feelings will go away soon!!! BE STRONG!!!! emoticon

Goals for September

Wednesday, September 02, 2009

Well I have definitely decided to only do the progress pics once a month. I think it will be easier to see that way.

I am on vacation in two days and I am not really going anywhere, just plan on doing a lot of stuff around the house. I am going to make sure I get a workout in EVERY day during this week. Also, I have at least one full day of housecleaning so I should be burning some calories there.

Goals for the month of September:

1. Track every bite of food every day. I have been doing this pretty consistently since I started over back in June, but I am going to really push myself this month.

2. Make notes on nutrition/fitness tracker. Easier to see my triggers if I know what happened that day and how I responded.

3. Try not to get on the scale EVERY day. This one is tough because I am one of those people that needs to continually see the progress. I passed that scale right up this morning without the need to shed my clothes and jump on it.

4. Outdoor activities. I am gonna try to get out with my little one more during the day while my older boys are at school. He is ill right now but hoping to get some swimming in before the pool closes. Also would like to do a few nature walks and see what we can find to study.

5. Be good to me. I am getting better at this one.

6. Let go of things. Personal.

7. Find a way to get more sleep. This one is tough. I have to work until 11:30 pm and home by midnight, then be back up by 6 am at least to get my boys to the school by 7. Takes me a bit to wind down and I am usually up til 2 or 3 am. UGH!

8. Check out some second hand stores for some new clothes while I am transitioning. My clothes look baggy right now.

That is all I can think of for now. Hoping to make it a great month!

    Good for you... You have given yourself some great goals there...

I think this is something that i should start doing for each month...

I am thinking of how to get my young daughter more active. I was thinking of starting geocaching with her. But a nature walk also sounds a great idea.

Thank you so much for sharing this with us...

Worked out today

Wednesday, August 26, 2009

Hi all.

Well I broke my dry spell and finally worked out today. Whew!

I worked out this morning and ever since then I have felt shaky and like my heart is racing. Maybe it is because I have been sick this week and haven't quite got over it yet. Not sure. But luckily I work in an ER so I am going to get a nurse to check my BP and pulse when it slows down.

Have a sparked day!! emoticon

    I agree with you there. I started out super slow yesterday, and I am still sore today! My BP and heart rate were perfect yesterday though,so I am thinking it is my asthma medication that was making me feel weird. Been having to use it more since I got sick this week. Feel worse today and I have been sick since Sunday. Thank goodness this is my Friday at work!

    This year I had to face it: I have to be gentle with myself and listen to my body, or I will injure myself and have to start over again.

I suppose this is why they say wisdom comes with age. If you don't pick up this wisdom, you cut short your age.

No more excuses

Tuesday, August 25, 2009

RANT to myself, feel free to read but don't expect it to make sense lol!!!

OK, so the whole summer my kids and I have stayed up too late and slept too late. School started back up today. Guess what?? I have to get up early and take them every day. Guess what else that means? I have no more excuses about not having enough time to excercise! So plan goes into action tomorrow morning after I get the kids off to school. Got to get my arms and legs toned up....TIRED of the flab. Eating right is helping me lose weight, but I still feel really fat. I actually FEEL fatter now that I did when I started, not sure what is up with that. I was feeling really good when I first started because I was excercising!!! WOW. Here's the thing, I HATE excercising, I always have. Not sure what to do there but I will struggle through it.

Anyway, gotta get this thing done and gotta do it right! So from today on out, no more excuses!

  Go for it! No more excuses. I hope you can find some exercise you like. Do you live where you can go out for a walk? I really enjoy being outside - it is such a stress relief for me. The thing about exercise is you have to find something you enjoy - or at least sort of like. :-) After getting the kids to school would be a great time to exercise. Just make a "rule" that says you can't _______ until you exercise. That is one of the ways I can motivate myself. Maybe you can't get on the computer, maybe you can't eat lunch, etc. I hope all will go as you get back on schedule.

196 LB Photos

Monday, August 24, 2009

I am adding these pictures here for posterity. I don't want to look like this anymore. I am going to try to blog weekly with updated photos so that I may look back and see it was all worth it.

So here are some pics that I would have never posted online otherwise. GASP! The horror. And this is after 26 lbs of weight loss.

Thanks for burning your eyes if you are looking at these LOL! Sorry if I scar you.

EDIT: Thinking of doing the pics monthly.....I think the progress will show better?

    26 lbs is AWESOME! Do you have any pictures of you before that weight? If you do, look at those side by side. It'll put it all in persepective. Wishing you the best on this crazy journey. Can't wait to see the next batch of photos!
