Revelations of a healthy lifestyle...week 3 :)

Tuesday, January 17, 2012

So I thought I'd share with everyone some "revelations" I've learned in the last two weeks of changing to healty lifestyle:


-A lifestyle change is a diet, but a manageable one.
-Putting an exercise bike beside a fireplace when trying to workout is a bad idea.
-Turning up the music makes me pedal faster AND prevents the neighbourhood from hearing me pant endlessly.
-Water cannot be substituted for beer
-When they say track your food, they mean ALL of it...including chocolates and junk that happen to fall into your mouth.
-Trying to diet and quit smoking is not impossible, but you should automatically loose 5lbs just for quitting smoking..just sayin'
-Eating healthy is not cheap, so I guess I'd rather be broke and healthy than rich and fat.
-Motivation does not come from fairys, but from kind strangers on SP!
-Saying "I'm so hungry" a hundred times a day will not make you more full.
-Green Tea is the cure to everything.
-Shoveling everyday is not my idea of the perfect workout routine.
-The scale is not always right...particularly in the morning.
-If the exercise is easy, the results will be too.
-If I smile while I'm doing it, it makes me think I like it :D


That's what I've got so far lol Hope everyone has an AWESOME day! :)

The corollary is wearing earphones, with the music loud not only makes you pedal faster, but you don't hear how hard YOU are panting and so your work out becomes effortless.

At least it does for me.

Survived the Weekend of Temptation!!!! :)

Monday, January 09, 2012

So the first weekend of 2012 wen't.....pretty freakin awesome I think. I was terrified on Friday about surviving the weekend...It's just seemed like for me to enjoy my days off, they usually had to be filled with fast food and cigarettes..just the idea of going without either made me want to quit this whole lifestyle change thing...lol..kinda.

As Friday night came, thanks to my preperation, I stayed on track with my food even though we had a party. I kept myself busy and totally forgot about smoking...I really wanted one at one point and kept saying "I'll have one later"...and later never came! Woot! One week down. :)

Saturday, ended up doing a McDonalds run with friends and SOMEHOW I had the willpower to only "taste" one french fry! I stayed on track for the rest of the day and to my surprise, lost 4lbs this week when I weighed myself in! I know it's my first week and a lot of that is probably water, but it's so rewarding to see results! I am totally getting hooked on exercising too! My new motto is "Feel the burn, feel the rewards!"...What have I turned into? lol

This is totally going to keep me motivated all week! I can't wait to sweat my butt off tonight!

Happy Monday! :D

Scared of Fridays :(

Friday, January 06, 2012

Somekind of motivation stealing fairy came to my house last night and sucked everything out of me. I feel like I hit the ground running when I started this journey and now I am loosing steam. Day 6 of quitting smoking. Havent had a craving all week. I want a smoke so bad today I could eat one. I would eat anything unhealthy right now, it's all I keep thinking about...Pizza.. McDonalds... mmmm... Argh!

I think I'm just scared of Fridays. I usually have a pretty good routine during the week and then everything goes to the doghouse on the weekends, starting Friday nights. Just the thought of going though ONE weekend without fast food or a smoke right now is killing me! I think if I just give in I'd be happy, but I know I would regret it.

I think I've told myself I am doing awesome like 100 times today jut to keep me on track...a co-worker even caught me giving myself a pep talk in the washroom! lol Will Monday ever come?! :) I hope I can re-gain some steam to plow through my weekend!

For right now it's mind over matter. You can do anything if you put your mind to it right?

    You can do it! Baby steps is all it takes! That and load up on carrot, celery stick or tootsie roll pops. Anything to take the place of the smoke between your fingers. That's what helped me when I quit :) good luck this weekend!

"The last time I was 135 lbs, I was 9."

Thursday, January 05, 2012

The last time I was 135 lbs, I was 9. This is kinda freaking me out. I've never been my goal weight in my adult life. I've always been fat or chubby since I was a kid. I'm currently 166lbs with 31lbs more to lose. Goals are my mission for today. My journey has officialy started. It's been 6 days since my last cigarette and I've already lost 2lbs so far. I wanted to set some reasonable goals and rewards so that I keep up this awesome healthy high I am on and so I don't loose focus this time. Thanks to the ladies who gave me some idea's on the message boards, here's what I came up with:

163 lbs - Hot Air Brush (I've always wanted one)
153 lbs- Medicine Ball 15lbs
148 lbs- New Makeup of somekind (just really getting into makeup haha fun!)
143 lbs- Manicure
138 lbs- Underwear, no more granny panties for this gal.
135 lbs- Lululemon Workout Pants :) Woo Hoo (also always wanted a pair)

I also told my boyfriend that every 10lb loss deserves fresh flowers! lol

I also loved the idea of saving money for each pound loss so you can buy some new clothes when you reach your goal weight. I think I am going to put all the money I am saving from not smoking into a clothes fund. Words cannot express who pumped I am for this. Bring it on world, I'm ready for this this time.

Wishing everyone a fantastic day! May the healthy force be with you :)
