lollygagging around day 43

Monday, October 15, 2012

It's been 43 days and I'm only a third of the way to my goal, not halfway like I planned. Now I know the goal was a bit unreasonable but thats what perfectionist, instant gratification me does.
So why am I lollygagging around the 1/3rd mark?? It's much more convenient to not have to unbutton/zip your pants to get them off, 2 more lbs and I will have to go get those dreaded in between sizes, ugghh. It's very nice sitting on the couch eating popcorn after standing behind the chair for 10 hours. On top of all that we have a room shuffle situation going on around here and my workout room is caught in the crossfire.
So there's my excuses. It's time to get back on the weight loss bus and make a plan before tomorrow's weigh in. (Honestly if I maintained after two rounds of buffalo wings this last week I will be oh so happy.)Time to wave farewll to this pitstop and get to my destination, better late than never right?

    I have many excuses this past couple of weeks. I am trying to move past them and get back in the groove :) Good luck!

Down and Out on day 27

Sunday, September 30, 2012

In a funk and missing my mister. Today was not a scheduled weigh in day, but I had to peek since I had nothing to show for the previous week. Uggh, not what I wanted to see and although I really just want to eat my way through this disappointment I'm not.

My first thought was, well at least I know what a maintenance week looks like.
Then I browsed SP for motivation, took a quiz and went to the message boards to seek support.
Still discouraged I found a trophy for losing five lbs and posted it to my page, and then it occurred to me... my glass is half full! While I wanted to lose 10lbs this month it's better to have lost 5 than none at all emoticon
So it's time to end this little pity party and reset some goals. Get back to the water, meal planning and fruits and veggies. Being persistent with the tracking is helping me see what went wrong and what needs to change. After all, Tomorrow is another day.

Day three

Tuesday, September 04, 2012

Yesterday was hard, hard, hard. Went to bed with a headache. I'm rethinking my plans, not my goals just how I'm going to get there. It's un-realistic to expect anyone to be perfect on their first try, so I shouldn't do it to myself.
So new smaller step plan, work toward the lower end of the caloried range in phases, if I keep feeling as bad as I did yesterday I will just end up giving up. Focused on the positive changes, Diet coke consumption is at an all time low of 1 can per day, water is up from 10 0z to 60, and the doorbell/dinnerbell didn't ring for two days

Day One

Sunday, September 02, 2012

Day one didn't start off quite as planned. I woke up tired (again) and missing my energetic, bubbly self. That's gotta going to change once and for all, starting with two small steps.
One, I'm here! I found this spark people site today and it's like nothing I've ever tried before. Sorta surprised at myself, I joined groups! Not usually a joiner emoticon
Two. I kinda made a meal plan and went to the store, Came home prepped some meals and measured out some portions. I don't have the 'didn't have time" excuse any more. Most of my meals this week are ready for the Angry birds lunch box.
Sorta and kinda might not seem so impressive I know, but I'm not going for perfection this time. Baby steps are kinda better than no steps emoticon
