Unnecessarially stressful day

Monday, November 18, 2013

Blah. Blah.

Hate it when I make little mistakes that screw me over.

Not weight loss related but just in a general can-I-go-curl-in-a-ball-and-die feeling. I don't like feeling upset. Its not my general inclination.

All the words that I'm pretty sure I'm not allowed to post (this was confirmed.) F-bombs galore.

    It's so humbling to make mistakes and have consequences. Deep breath... it''ll be OK.

I've been quiet but...

Wednesday, November 13, 2013

That doesn't mean I haven't been working hard. I had a personal tragedy and pulled myself out of it. I've been going to the gym more consistently than I have ever done in my life--ever. Like, even when I was at my smallest.

I haven't dropped a ton of weight yet, but my health is improved. I feel...like, so good. About myself and my direction. Its awesome.

    It is so easy to fall into emotion and let it get the best of you. Instead of giving up, it is good that you overcome

Stay strong!

Challenge W1 D1

Monday, June 10, 2013

I'm part of the Smokin Summer Body Challenge (go Team 3!!!) and I'll be logging my points/challenges/food daily so its easier to total at the end of the week.

My day at a glance: Day off, ran some errands. Could have been a bit more active but I made up for it by doing a quick 20 min workout before bedtime.


Breakfast: Bisquick Heart Smart pancakes with a few chocolate chips, SF syrup
Lunch: Chipotle burrito bowl, chicken black beans light rice sour cream salsa lettuce
Dinner: Healthy Choice Crustless Pot Pie (surprisingly yummy)
Snack/Indulgence: 4 (ugh) mini cupcakes from Sweets by Holly, 1 mixed drink with 0 calorie raspberry lemonade sparkling water and Smirnoff Sorbet Raspberry pomegranate

Need more veggies!

10 min Fit Fired and Firmed Up Lower Body
50 wall pushups per challenge
2 min standing ab work

Personal Challenge: Cleaned up the kitchen emoticon

Drinking some water to meet my ten cup goal before bedtime. I feel good except for the cupcakes lol. But they didn't derail my day entirely. I'm glad I exercised at the very least.

Points for today:
50 wall pushups: 10
Water: 10
Personal Challenge: 10
Total: 30 pts out of 35

Day 4 and learning

Friday, June 07, 2013

It was Tropical Storm Andrea over here in Florida and I left the house maybe once. You know, to go get chips and queso and a quesadilla from Tijuana Flats. Umm...yeah. But I held true to my word that I would track my food and such and guess what-- No really, guess. I'll wait.

Okay. Hah. I didn't blow my day! It still fell within my ranges even with drinking sweet tea and stuff. Oh wow. Revalation. But I also got a whole wheat quesadilla with chicken and good options and stuff. And I had a healthy breakfast so that helped.

No exercise yesterday. Gonna break that today.

    Have you tried either of the cardio kickboxing videos on here? They're such a good work out and only 10 minutes!

Day 3 Recap (a little late)

Thursday, June 06, 2013

Day at a glance:

I was worried because my friend Brandon is in town from Orlando and I generally tend to snack and snack and eat things I normally don't when I hang out with him. His metabolism is cray-cray fast because he's athletic with a six pack (Damn him...) But I turned down all soda offered and only had a couple of treats that didn't break my calorie budget. YAY!

Exercise: None, it was my rest day.

Breakfast PBJ with whole grain bread, all natural crunchy PB, and sugar free raspberry preserves
1 Banana
1 Pack of Starburst
2 mini Reese's cups
1 Chicken Pesto sandwich on whole grain from WhichWich (1/2 eaten there 1/2 for dinner later).
1 Baked BBQ Lays snack bag
1 mixed drink (Crystal Light Raspberry Lemonade with 1 shot Smirnoff Sorbet Light Raspberry Pomegranate YUMM )

The veggies could use some work but overall not too bad. I stayed within my range and kept my snacking in check. I also wasn't very hungry yesterday but thats because I'm adjusting to new medication and my body is like weird (in a good way-- I'm more aware of when I'm full and not fatigued.) Will update later today after I go to my gym class and give a day 4 recap.

    Yay! Happy day three! I know how difficult it is not to snack when friends or family visit so way to go! You mean plan is solid! (and that drink sounds amazing!) Sorry for all the exclamation points... apparently I'm excited today! Have a great weekend!
