Ok, ok...I can finally admit it...

Thursday, January 20, 2011

I am truly a size 10! I've been qualifying that with, I can fit into SOME size 10's...I'm not really a size 10...I'm more like an 11. Well, I tried on 8 size 10's last night and every single pair fit me! I'm really a 10 now!

And I bought my "goal" pants last night, at Salvation Army, for $1.50. Size 8. I can get them to my hips but was afraid I'd break the zipper getting them over the hips...and why risk that? I knew I'd never get them zipped! So I told Darryl and Echelle that when those fit me comfortably, I'm done losing and will start the switch to maintenance. I feel like this last jump, from 10 to 8, will be the hardest, longest...we'll see!

    That's awesome!! I'm curios myself to try on some new pairs...my size 12's are getting a little bit loose!

And haha I love how you got your goal pants for $1.50 at the Salvation Army. I have a pair that I refer to as my "skinny" jeans; 1 because they are actually skinny jeans, and 2 because I used to fit into them and I'm working towards getting back to that size as my first goal. They are from Unique, a secondhand store near me - I think I bought them for like $5.00! And I love them!

Keep up the good work! emoticon

Wry Neck...again?

Tuesday, January 18, 2011

I woke up yesterday with a "stiff neck"...but as the morning went on, it got a bit worse. Called the chiropractor and got squeezed into a cancellation. He worked and worked on it. Last night it was worse. Today, ugh.

We got a snow day today, so no work. Thinking I'll attempt to at least use the elliptical, if my neck allows it. Then whirlpool and sauna. I know that will help. I took off Sunday because I'd worked out the six days prior to that...and yesterday because of my neck. Afraid to take off a third day. :(

But I'll take it easy and really listen to my body. Not overdue it. Don't want to end up in the ER, like I did in August, with my head laying on my shoulder, unable to straighten it. Will NOT let it go that long!

    Goodness! That sounds painful. Do you work at a desk? I have had neck problems which have improved greatly since installing Stretchware on my work computer. It reminds me to stretch every hour and provides several simple series of stretches to do at your desk. Also, acupuncture has worked wonders for my husband's chronic back pain. I hope you are feeling better soon!

exercise to relieve stress and anger

Friday, January 14, 2011

I had a series of plans that had to change that was, although nobody's fault, upsetting, leaving me in a super foul mood last night. Now 8 months ago, this would have been the perfect excuse for a binge (as was good news, sad news, whatever). But I just went to the gym and had an awesome workout! Had taken a half day, when we had weekend plans (one of the several plans that had to change), so instead of staying home and pouting about not going away, I did another long, hard workout and then swam, did a sauna and showered. I'm home and have an hour before I would be getting out of work, had I not taken the half day.

So even though I'm not going away, I'm out early, have a three day weekend and the workout is done for the day...this is all good! Not holding onto anger and stress these days! I'm making some progress!

    emoticonThat is one thing I notice too, I deal with emotions differently and I am more aware of when I am doing emotional eating. I don't always do what I should, but I am aware of what I should be doing.

I'm so fortunate!!!

Thursday, January 13, 2011

My gym membership comes with two free sessions with a trainer. I met Erik last night for the first time. He's great! He agrees with everything Echelle's been telling me to do. Told me it's working and I should keep working with her. And he showed me some machines last night. Tonight we do some more together. He talked a lot about "surprising" my muscles, which Echelle's always saying. How fortunate am I to have, not one, but TWO great trainers in my corner?!
