YES!

Monday, December 05, 2011

I was really impressed with all the comments I got on my last blog =)

I've been doing really well with staying on track with my eating. I have a great friend who knows ALOT about nutrition and put me on a specific meal plan and in 2 days I lost 4 pounds, how amazing is that. The plan is super strict the first week so I am not going to workout because I'm not eating a whole lot of calories. So I will start my workouts back up NEXT Monday. I don't exactly feel the NEED to workout this week when I've already lost 4 lbs! haha

I went to our church annual meeting last night and there was tons of dessert but THANKFULLY i was able to stay away completely. I brought almonds and apple slices to get me by =)

Slacker

Saturday, December 03, 2011

I've been MAJORLY slacking in the working out department! Hoping to get my butt into gear by Monday. This week was rest week with p90x which DOESN'T mean you just don't work out like I'm doing but I figured if theres a time to slack on my workouts rest week would be the time to do it, ha!

I've been doing really well with my eating habits. I've been eating clean for the past 2 weeks with the exception of yesterday. We went to red robin and I got about the most unhealthy thing I could get. Fish & Chips. I skipped lunch yesterday so by 4pm I was starving which almost ALWAYS leads me to make a stupid decision like going out to eat and choosing a very unhealthy option! Oh well I'm back on track today.

If theres any advice I could give anyone, it would be DON'T SKIP A MEAL! We make stupid decisions when we get really hungry.

    The good thing is that you got back on track today. A slip up every so often is not bad.

    Hang in there - and don't beat up on yourself... don't forget that there are a lot of things that count as exercise other than walking/running, programs, etc. Check out the fitness tracker... heavy cleaning, gardening, raking the lawn are just some of the 'home activites' on there...

hope the fish was good!

    Don't beat yourself up. You have been eating clean for two weeks and slipped. It happens! I am so impressed that you had a couple of great weeks eating clean. I wouldn't be able to do more than two days.

Seems like you learned a lesson or two along the way and there is definitely value in that!

    Skipping meals and not getting enough sleep are the two that make my decisions really stupid!

I'm back!

Friday, November 18, 2011

I pretty much forgot about SPARK, how dare I! haha

Anyway I just got married in July the the man of my dreams and I've finally gotten back into a decent routine!

I've been doing p90x on and off and my goal is to finish the whole thing through because I've attempted it several times but never can stick with it for 90 days. I'm going to keep on trying until I succeed.

Today is day 11 of p90x. I ALMOST skipped todays workout, but i didn't! I was in a horrible funk today due to TOM but While I was at work tonight I decided I wasn't going to use that as an excuse! When I got home at 10pm I decided to do my yoga. I absolutely HATE yoga so I didn't do the full hour and 32 mins! But i did the first 30 mins. I will have to build myself up to doing more each time. I always thought yoga would be so easy...definitely not!

I've been really struggling with eating healthy lately. I usually do good all day then I come home from work and totally sabotage my diet with a big bowl of ice cream! I will NOT give up though :) Tonight I have not ate bad and I have no intentions to do so!

Cloud of doom!

Wednesday, April 13, 2011

Lately I've been waking up most days having this "cloud of doom" over me- making me NOT want to get out of bed in the morning. I just feel absoultely miserable. I hope its just a phase! I did talk to my pastor about it and he said I might want to consider trying to see a therapist about it. He thinks there may still be some stuff from my past that hasn't been uncovered or delt with. I'll probably look into it, it couldn't hurt. In the mean time he gave me some scripture to help me out.

Philippians 6-9
Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. 7 And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus. 8 Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things. 9 Whatever you have learned or received or heard from me, or seen in me—put it into practice. And the God of peace will be with you.

: In other words I ALWAYS having something to be thankful for and God has done so much for me:)


On another note I'm pretty sure I've gained several pounds. I've barely been to the gym and I've been really slacking on getting back on track with my eating habbits. Which I need to get back to it since my wedding dress has already been ordered and I'd be DEVESTATED if it didn't fit, haha.

    I love that scripture! God always knows our needs and things will happen in His time and not ours. I have been thinking of going to a therapist too but I truly want to rely upon God and not someone else so who knows what happens.

    This is beautiful scripture. Concentrate/focus on the positive & give the stress to God to take care of for you.

    I'm right there with you, I've been struggling too. The phase of life I'm in right now is really hard. Thanks for the reminder thru scripture...I found myself reading thru it really fast (because it's so familiar) I made myself stop and read it slowly and try to take it in like it was the first time!! There is always something to be thankful for...if we look.
Fitting into that wedding dress--now that's good motivation to get back on track!!

3-4 pounds until my goal weight!

Wednesday, March 09, 2011

It seems like forever since I blogged! I guess I felt too guilty because I hadn't worked out in several weeks. I got bogged down with 2 jobs and was a little overwhelmed. Was doing front desk at one hotel and housekeeping at another. So after cleaning all day I defintely didn't feel like working out! Someone quit at the front desk job at comfort inn so I got bumped up to fulltime which is WONDERFUL. So I quit the housekeeping job. Although I wasn't working out I was cleaning a lot at sticking to my diet. I managed to lose a few pounds by just that. So now I'm down to the 128-129 range.

I recently got me and Jed a membership at the gym and tanning bed since I'm working now. I've pretty much worked out every day since we got it. I talked with a trainer just to determine a goal and I'm at 26% body fat so I'm shooting for 20% body fat and 125lbs. Basically I need to build a lot of muscle! :) I started lifting weights at the gym. I feel like I don't really know what I'm doing but I guess I'll have to learn sooner or later! I'm shooting for 30 mins of weight training and 30 mns of cardio 4 days a week.

Today I WAS on track with eating but then there were a bunch of wings leftover after a meeting at work and I just couldn't say no! uhhh oh well, I'll restart my day tomorrow!
