Still pushing

Friday, May 10, 2013

I am continuing to do my 10,000 steps most days and trying to do morning exercise when I can. My asthma is acting up YET AGAIN which i find incredibly annoying. I am still trying to do 30 mins of exercise daily despite that.

I'm studying for my national exams and have about 27 days left. So... I may be missing for a bit but no worries, I'm still going to work out.

I had an amazing time in Europe! Barcelona, Florence, Rome, Cannes were ALL amazing!!! I'll put some pictures up soon.

:) Oh and I've lost 4 pounds. :) Probably water weight ... but I'll take it!

    If you have lost 4 pounds and are studying, traveling, etc. It probably is NOT water weight, don't discount the efforts you are obviously making. GREAT work to lose while in the midst of a whole lot of challenging situations - including your health.

Sunday Joy!

Sunday, April 21, 2013

Today was a good day.

I did more organizing and cleaning. Separated out the jeans/pants that don't fit right now. Filled my drawers with LOVELY clothes that I can wear and enjoy right now today.

Never could find my lost heart rate monitor strap :( So I just sucked it up and decided to buy another one online. I MISS my HRM. I LOVE knowing how many calories I'm burning down to the tee so I can feel like I really accomplished something! :-D

I took my dog for a great 2+ mile walk.

I got over 12,000 steps before 4 pm.

I ate food that I MADE all day and LOTS of fruits veggies today :) I've also pre-prepared the fruits and veggies for my breakfast smoothie. And I'm going to have a salad for lunch + some protein.

Did some grocery shopping for healthy foods... and Got some studying done!

I did eat more calories than I wanted to yet again (maybe it's the prednisone?) either way, no excuses. I'm going to do an extra 30 mins of exercise- that's better than nothing, and then I'm heading to bed early so I can get a good start for the week.

One week until my vacation and I want to have a smooooooth week. Trying to work out some last minute things with the travel agent. Pray for me.

Closer than I think...

Saturday, April 20, 2013



So,

I spent today decluttering and organizing my clothes and I realized something. Not only will I have an AMAZING wardrobe as I lose weight, I am not that far from being able to fit at least 70% of the clothes in my closet and being extra stylish.

I feel like I've completely let myself go, despite working out hard and eating better. BUT, I realized most of my clothes are only a 1/2 size too small. I bet a solid 10 pound lost could get me back into most of them comfortably.. And because I have sizes 6,8,10's I can look stylish all along my weight loss journey. (That's my positive spin on it.)

I'm giving away a lot of clothes and trying to move away the ones that don't fit now. Like I'll put ALL of the 6's and 8's in some boxes and revisit them in 15-20 pounds or when the 10's get too big. If I don't get to them within the next few months, I'll give them away.

I can bless someone else with them.

All the clothes that are from high school (I STILL have some, that look cute and fit somehow Lol) will be given away no matter what. I'm on a mission to de-clutter, de-stres and simplify things.)

So moral of the story is: There's no reason for me to give up or feel overwhelmed. I have NOT fallen that far from glory. LOL. and... as long as I get the pounds moving in the NEGATIVE direction... I'll have some cute clothes to wear. I can go shopping in my closet!


And, since I've been doing this ALL day... I'm sure I've burned some calories.

Ok, back to business.
Later guys!

    i just did the same thing. Looked for ideas online on how to declutter my closet. One idea was to hang all the hangers one way and then as you wear each item, wash it and hang it again, put it back hanging in the opposite direction. After 6 month or a years time, what is still hanging backwards on the clothes rod, toss out to good will or give away to friends. You aren't going to wear it if you haven't worn it in that length of time. (unless of course, those are the clothes you are working towards fitting into) I like the feeling I get from reorganizing and cleaning out closets, even though it's a chore that nobody else sees you've done.

Realizations!

Saturday, April 20, 2013

I've been trying to observe myself along this journey to learn how BEST to achieve my goals and maintain the weight loss.

I've noticed more things...

I don't eat much (in quantity) I usually stop half way full. The issue is that sometime it's high calorie foods so even when I eat HALF it's still more than I need to eat.

I have got to keep working on not eating fast foods. I'm getting better at resisting urges to eat fast food out of convenience but... it takes constant reminders on my part.

I am studying for boards... this will probably be a higher stress time for me so I have to plan ahead and STICK TO MY PLAN

I am going to have to make a meal plan the day before even when I don't feel like it. It's too easy to grab something else, even if I count the calories, and end up eating more than I want...

Also, if I get a craving (which happens when I think "I'd like PfChangs, or mmmm pizza sounds yummy, etc) I will remember that I CAN have the food but NOT if it's not on my plan for the day. I don't have to be this strict forever but I want to see results, so I'm going to do what I have to do.

:)

Laters!

    Good idea Nellie!

I used to eat Lean Cuisines ALL the time... but then, I started worrying about the sodium. But, truthfully... they can't be any worse than fast food. I'll go buy some tomorrow.

Thanks for the tip!

    Ever since I read a comment by one of the SP coaches that some frozen meals actually are nutritious, I have been using Lean Cuisine meals and Healthy Choice meals. In fact to get enough calories, sometimes I have to supplement them. They are great for someone who doesn't want to take the time to cook a whole meal, plus, I live by myself, so are also very convenient!

Amazing April Challenge! -Day 19... Pushing through the exhaustion.

Friday, April 19, 2013

lovelylynee.blogspot.com

I hope you can all check out my blog! I wrote 2 blogs this week. Monday AND Friday. Monday I spilled coffee on myself TWICE! Soaked myself to the panites... pools of coffee in my heels. It was a MESS emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

I've been sick all week. Feeling tired and run down, but I've done my best to keep up as much activity as I could considering Its not easy being active in the middle of an asthma attack. I'm on prednisone, antibiotics, inhalers, etc.

Today was a good day though. Starting to feel a little better. Spirits feel renewed. I started a knitting project (going to knit a hat! ).

Came home and decided a workout would make me feel better too so I id 40 mins on the treadmill and 25 mins on the bike. I took it easy because, well, I'm sick. But... I wanted to stay active because I've been eating more with the steroids and I want to at least keep things balanced. When I'm not working I'm resting. Sleeping 8-10 hours a night to help my body heal. AND taking my vitamins!

:)

Hope you are all doing well and all my APRIL CHALLENGERS... I hope you are STILL pushing!! Let me hear from ya!?

I'm still on my path to losing 5% body weight AND I go to Europe in 10 days! Excited!
