Aha Moments

Thursday, April 22, 2010

In times of stress is when I seem to have the best "Aha" moments. My daughter has been having behavioral issues and we are on a new routine with after school care. After a week of this new life I am starting to break because my life is the one that has gotten off track! I haven't been to the gym in a week - I was so upset tuesday that I called my sitter and jogged around my block for 30 minutes. I cried for the first 5 minutes of it!

It has been nice to log inread a little and accumulate points again! This weekend is our last weigh in for our charity weigh loss challenge... I was in 2nd place last month and think I have lost that title - but I am not going ot beat myself up about it... I had a good time, got my weight loss off to a great start and am feeling great! I will let everyone know the results on Saturday!

Just wanted to say hello and TGIF tomorrow!!

  


It is with my tail between my legs that I type this....

Tuesday, April 13, 2010

My last post was on March 17th - almost a month ago... seriously!?! I have fallen into a very familiar pattern - I make head way, pat my back and slack - - I think a month has been enough!

I enrolled in 2 bootcamps this weekend (saturday actually) and got worked!! Man!! I took Sunday and Monday off to relearn how to walk, sit and stand :o) I am motivated about my last chance workout over the next 2 weeks with the fitness challenge I joined - I think I lost the lead, but this was just a mini challenge to help push me towards my realistic goal!

I can feel the wieght in my clothes and my eating and drinking has gone down the drain! I know what I need to do, I just need to stop the excuses and do it - I say that while sitting here not having eaten in oh, 6 hours . . . what the hell Allison! I need to chake myself :o)

Thank for letting me vent - I feel like I have been carrying my disgust alone and that is something that needs to be purged!! I haven't been able to really look myself in the eye over the past 3 weeks! It's time!!

    i've been wondering where you've been. i have been a little hesitant on sending you a message. i think the last couple of messages have been "¿where are you?".

don't let this time off get the best of you. just consider this an odd sort of plateau. you haven't lost all of the progress since you started SP - not even close. you'll get back in the swing of things quick. life happens. your job/life is not your fitness schedule.

there is what we want and what we can do. with fitness, sometimes we just have to be happy with what we can do from time to time. give it the 5 year test. in five years will you notice that you had a month break? -- nope. on the contrary, in 5 years will you notice that you stopped altogether?

good luck getting back on track. log some fitness minutes soon.

  Just hang in there Allison...we all take a few steps forward and one back. The main thing is greater awareness and keep turning back to the goal. We are all going to be WEE ONEs before you know it. That dream dress is closer than you think!

Getting back on track...

Wednesday, March 17, 2010

So I pushed my luck.... what am I saying I ate like crap this last week, allowing the lack of sleep and the stress from the sale get the best of me! I am paying for it in the form of 2.5 lbs! I have returned to bringing my lunch to work - not allowing myself the "liberties" I had reincorporated into my "routine" . . . I have a mid point weight in for a weight loss/fundraiser on saturday and need for these extra pounds to disappear!! Glad the my daughter is cared for during spring break - that was I can stay at the gym for longer and not feel so guilty!

I hope everyone is well and keeping on :o)

BTW I made $835 at the garage sale for Breast Cancer Awareness and the Cure...

    Congratulations on your sale. I'm going to support a friend's fundraising efforts for the 2010 3-day. Sounds like you're doing great things. No worries over the 2.5. That'll go away fast.

    congratulations with your sale!

as for your break, you'll be alright. that 2.5 is going to disappear fast. i see that kind of thing happen over the holidays. a little weight comes on with the excess of food and decrease in exercise, but that extra weight doesn't really want to be there.

to me it seems as if your body has set a new thermostat level for weight. if i get back on track with my routine, the "holiday" weight drops off at least as fast as it got there. it's like the routine reminds my body that i'm not really that weight. if i don't go back to exercise, the weight has a chance to get comfortable and settle in, and that's the only thing you have to worry about.

don't forget that you've got a life in addition to weight loss; it's not your job. 2 months from now, you won't notice that you had a little extra this week.

good luck!

I'm Alive!

Thursday, March 11, 2010

Hello all,
Thanks to those who were worried that they haven't seen me on here for a while :o) I have been so busy with work and prepping for my first Breast Cancer Garage Sale Fundraiser that I haven't made the time to share and celebrate in everyones (and my own) successes!

I have been good - for all who wondered. I really enjoyed my 31st birthday week... ate great dinners and spent time with wonderful people. I had "neglected" the gym for 6 of the 7 days of last week... and did not gain a single pound! I was glad to see that my body has learned to monitor itself and keep on task! The exciting thought was that if I tighten up my food intake and get back into the same regime at the gym I should be able to break through the 180's! I have been staled for 2 weeks and know that I am the only one to change it!

I have purged all my "fall back on" clothes and for the first time since high school am wearing Med tshirts!! Still working in getting into the jeans ~ so close I can taste it!!

I'm gonna be 31! So Excited!!

Monday, March 01, 2010

Tomorrow I will be 31 years old! I feel weird saying "old" because over the last year or so I feel like I have taken my life back and have been feeling younger and stronger with every passing day!

It was my wish last year to "do something good" and as I reflect on the past year, I have achieved that goal! I am excited to be 31! To take on new challenges and achieve bigger goals. I am on my way to creating the life I want to live!! So far this year I have lost 15lbs in pursuit of my 64lbs weight loss goal - only 49 to go!!

People often ask "what do you want for your birthday?" I am walking in the 60 Mile Breast Cancer 3 Day Walk and and hoping to raise enough to also walk in San Diego (to do a back to back!) I hope that you all will take time to visit my page and donate (every donation counts no matter how big or small) and pass my information to your friends and family... Breast Cancer has impacted so many lives, you never know who might want to help "make a difference!"

Everyone deserves a lifetime - that is my birthday wish!!
