Bye Bye 187

Monday, November 02, 2009

Okay, so I slipped a little this past week. I haven't been doing anything. This morning, I was prepared to step on the scale and see how much I have gained in the 7 days I haven't been tracking anything, or exercising at all. Imagine my surprise when I have finally broken the 187 curse. For 3 years, I would lose weight until I got to 187, and then it seems like nothing else ever happens no matter what I do, except maybe to go up. So, this is my wake up call, Now there are no more excuses. Now, I have to get up and get motivated, because I don't ever want to see this number again. Bye Bye 187!!

    Good job! You sound motivated enough to stick with it and say goodbye to your number forever! Keep up the good work!

TGIF - Now the real work starts

Friday, October 23, 2009

THANK GOD IT'S FRIDAY!!! Today is not only Friday, but it is homecoming at my kids school, which means that I have everything to do that I normally do, plus I get to go pick them u from school early and get the 12 year old to the parade to march with the band and take the 2 and 10 year olds with my mother to watch the parade. But it doesn't end there, After the parade, I have to get Ryan, the 12 year old, to the high school by 5 and get the other 2 ready for the game at 7 while getting dinner ready and my stepson is coming home this weekend with my husband from work.

I know that it probably sounds like I am complaining, but I am really ready for days like this, I actually get to stay busy and it challenges me to get my workout done early this morning so I wil have time to get ready for everything today.

I love the weekends, but I am sad because this will be the last Sat I get to watch my 10 year old play football this season (we didn't make the playoffs this year). Oh well, I guess that means I will have more time to watch college football. (Until basketball starts , anyway.)

So, when I say THANK GOD IT'S FRIDAY, I really mean it. Have a great day today everyone!!!

New Motivation

Thursday, October 22, 2009

This morning, I read a blog from someone who is alot like me. They talked about the littlest thing sending them into a tailspin. While reading the blog, I realized that I was looking at a mirror of the old me. And I realized how much I have grown in the last few months. I have allowed everything to come before my motivation to get moving. There was always some excuse not to exercise, and at the time I thought it was a really good one. Then, like yesterday, I felt bored and instead of doing something, I would take a nap, or just sit back and watch soap operas.
That doesn't ork anymore. Yesterday, I was home with my 2 year old who was taking a nap, and I was sooo bored. I tried everything, including eating a little too much on my snack. I finally got up and said forget the soaps, I got outside and pulled weeds out of the rose garden and started on other yard work until the baby got up. Just a few weeks ago, my day would have been shot because I would have eaten everything in sight until I got tired enough to take a nap.
Anyway, I have figured out that for me, all it takes is a little reminder of why I get up early every morning and start moving.

Live Another Day

Wednesday, October 21, 2009

YEAH!!! I have lost those 2 little pounds that I gained while down with a knee injury. It was only 2 lbs, but it feels like it could have been 20. Now if I could only get down below the 180s. I know it will come, but I am impatient and I WANT IT NOW!!!
Really, I am very proud of myself for not gaining any more than I did, and I am very happy I can do a little bit of cardio now, although not as much as I want, but the scale is still moving.

Still Fighting

Tuesday, October 20, 2009

Okay, I am up this morning at 5:00, now it is 6, and I still haven't managed to do a darn thing but drink coffee. I injured my knee Friday, and am having a hard time with any cardio at all, but my weight is creeping back up now that I haven't done anything since Fri. I know I need to get moving, I am just not sure what to do that won't make my knee really bad. Any ideas??

    Can you maybe do some yoga? You can try to modify moves so you're not hurting your knee. How about walking? Can you walk?? If you can walk, then just do a couple blocks and see how you feel - but don't push too hard!
