It's been a few weeks

Monday, August 19, 2013

Vacation. Work. Convention. I have been a busy girl lately. I have been neglecting my sparking lately as well. I have been weighing myself and trying to watch what I am eating. I have not had time to hit the gym. I had hoped today was the day I headed back to the gym but I am suffering from a stiff neck that is causing migraines. Actually this is day three of this stiff neck/migraine situation. I tried switching pillows in case that was the cause of my ills, but I actually felt worse this morning. Off to get the icy ben gay and take it easy.


YeeHaw! I am down!!!

Wednesday, August 07, 2013

I was so dreading today. I have been on vacation for a little over a week. I was NOT good. I was not in control with food that was offered or time of day that we ate. I did not have access to a gym or exercise equipment. I was so busy I did not even have time to take a walk all week. I was extremely stressed on vacation as I was with my parents and siblings and we were not getting along due to the circumstances. My plan was to do the best I could at choosing foods that would work for me, skip the snacks that I knew would be offered.

I had planned on doing a "pre weigh in" day yesterday just to brace myself as to the amount of weight GAINED. I woke up late and had to run out the door to get to an appointment. I just knew that was another sign that today we be an expected disappointment.

Well, I am happy to report that I was totally wrong. I am down half a pound. I realize half a pound is not much. But if you had seen the foods I experienced last week and the stress levels that have left me with canker sores in my mouth and headaches every day you would understand my excitement. I am going to happily take my half a pound and work even harder this week to keep it away!!

I am treating myself to a couple of new shirts today, a size smaller!! Another happy goal completed.

    I'm so glad you don't have to add this stress to the stress you already suffered this week. Enjoy your shopping! Sounds like you earned it. emoticon

Dreading Tomorrow

Monday, August 05, 2013

I have been on vacation and have not had the opportunity to stay on track as well as I had hoped I would. I am going to weigh in a day early tomorrow just to see where I stand. Then I will be heading back down this path more focused.

One postive, I did have a good time on vacation.


Not a great weigh in day...

this was not a good week for me. I was too busy with doggy sitting my grandpup who had surgery last friday. she has been needing constant attention, so i have been longing to go to the gym but not wanting to leave her alone too much. she is going back home tomorrow for a couple of days while my DD is off of work. Then she will be back for the weekend. Hopefully by Monday she will be back home full time.

so my scale showed that I stayed the same this week. I know i did not track three days this week and with the lack of the gym, i had a feeling that would be the situation. so i am not really surprised but kind of disappointed in my efforts.

this next week will be better!

Feelin' Icky...

Friday, July 19, 2013

Today has been a hard day on my stomach. And the worse part is that I can't identify what set it off today. I have lots of stomach issues. I have to monitor my stomach pretty closely. And on top of all that I have many food allergies. So eating can be quite a chore some days.

Who knew that pretzels and cherries would set me off?!! Pretzels are relatively healthy for me. No extra dairy or greasiness. So it should be a safe choice. And cherries?!! I did not eat the stems or pits so what the heck?!!

So since they got me feeling like yuck, i waited to track my food until the end of the day and I skipped the gym. And now I am regretting it. Granted I stayed in my range for tracking food, but I ate NO veggies today. The only fruit i got in was the so called cherries from the above paragraph.

I mostly feel guilty about skipping the gym. I have been trying to get there three days a week. But once again I was only successful at that task twice this week. I really feel like I need to go more often if I want to lose more than my one pound a week that I have been consistently accomplishing. But my schedule limits me to Monday, Wednesday, and Friday only. Maybe if I get up early enough tomorrow I can squeeze in an early morning session. Otherwise I may just pull out the Kinect tomorrow and let Jillian Michaels yell at me for a while, lol!!
