back on spark

Wednesday, April 08, 2009

wow its been a few months since I logged onto Spark but I am going to try and log in daily and keep better track of my calories because i think thats where my major setback on losing the last 15lbs is. i know its definitely not lack of working out! I work out 5-7 days a week sometimes twice a day. Like today, I went to the gym this morning did a 45 min run/jog on the treadmill, did abs for 15 minutes and then went back tonight for an hour of spin. Im really going to try to log in ever day, is there anyone out there that can kick my ass if I dont?! jk

  


looking up...

Thursday, May 01, 2008

well, i finally got my stuff together and dragged mu butt and the kids to the gym this morning, i only stayed for an hour ( $2 per child an hr) it'll cost me some money every week, but i guess it will be worth it in the end...i'm scared to get on the scale...i haven't been on it since my last weigh in like a month ago. i'm gonna try to make it every day like i was before even though now it's a pain to get the kids up and ready too. i guess i'll see how this week goes and weigh in next thurs. hopefully it wont be TOO disappointing! :(

STILLIN A SLUMP

Tuesday, April 29, 2008

WELL A MONTH LATER AND I' STILL IN THIS SLUMP! I'M BECOMING SO DEPRESSED I DON'T KNOW WHAT TO DO. I'M WORKING 3X11, AND MY BF WORKS 11X7, BUT WHEN HE COMES HOME NOW HE WANTS TO SLEEP B4 I CAN GO TO WORK. MY GYM DAYS ARE OVER NOW, EVEN IF I GO ON MY DAYS OFF, WHAT'S THE POINT? IT'S NOT GOING TO HELP ME VERY MUCH. IM JUST SO DISCOURAGED AND DISAPPOINTED B/C HE KNOWS HOW MUCH I WANTED THIS AND HE DOESN'T CARE, BUT ANYTHING HE NEEDS SUPPORT WITH I ALWAYS DO MY BEST TO MAKE IT HAPPEN. ANYONE OUT THERE?? GIVE ME SOME SUPPORT TO GET BACK ON THE WAGON, I FEEL LIKE GIVING UP ON THE ENTIRE THING.....

    I have a super busy work/school/family schedule and completely understand (especially with 2 small ones at home)...it can be hard to get the exercise in. AND, i don't necessarily like to exercise.... but i recently started doing taebo in my living room after the boys are in bed; and even though its late, i feel like i've accomplished something and feel good about myself. :) So give that a try-I know how frustrating it can feel when you don't have support at home- take it into your own hands- even @ 9pm.

    I was wondering how you were getting along. I think about your situation often. You may not be ready to change your current surroundings but you can change your attitude towards how you get your daily exercising in. I know for some people they feel that must leave the house and go to the gym in order to workout but what if that isn't or is no longer and alternative? How about picking up a couple of different DVD's at Walmart or Targe and working out in your living room for a while. You're still able to get your workout in and attend to the baby at close range. Call it the best of both worlds. What's really cool, is that Siana will learn a healthy lifestyle by watching Mommy. Don't be discourage this is like anything else in life a DECISION. Like Nike says, "Just Do It". emoticon

    Don't give up, my boyfriend doesn't really care about me losing weight either. Sometimes I want to talk about it but he is just like ...hmm. good for you.. and that's it. He never comments. He knew that I really wanted to get a membership at a gym and it's expensive so he kept putting if off because we couldn't afford it. We could, he just wasn't willing to help me pay for it. So I just started running outside and doing exercises on my own and I just keep in mind

"I don't need anyone's support, just my own. I am doing this for myself and no one else, so why should I have to turn to him if he doesn't even care. I know that he'll appreciate the 'thin' version of me."

Look here for inspiration and I would be more than willing to help you stay on the site and do this. I am one that is doing this without any support from friends or family, just from my new Sprak People family. We can do this, so hang in there. I am free to chat whenever you would like. Just stop by my page

In a slump :(

Monday, March 31, 2008

I knew this would happen when I returned from work. No matter how much I want to lose and no matter how bad I want to stay away from the fridge, I always head right for it when I get home. I've been back to work for three weeks and gained back 1pound. :( So I am really at 190. It's sooo depressing, too because I am up and moving around too. I am constantly on the move and when I come home, I don't want to do anything. I did do aerobics 3x last week, but couldn't get my butt to the gym. I made myself log onto SP today, to see how many calories I've eaten. I want to lose the weight and knew it would be hard going back to work. Especially since I'm an emotional eater it depends on if I have a good or bad day at work. Today was a bad day, it's not the inmates (they've been pretty good to me so far). We did a drill and I messed up, so I'm mad about that. i want to gym, maybe i can get back on track with a good workout.

    You are doing fine! You cant expect perfection. Just do the best you can and everything will fall into place. I have been far from perfect on this journey but I am learning alot that will keep me working towards my goal. Now, grab a glass of water and sit down and read some articles. If it keeps you away from the fridge for 5 minutes, then you have made progress. The little changes do turn into big changes. Hang in there!

Ready to go CRAZY!

Tuesday, March 04, 2008

I am just about ready to go crazy! I feel sooo stressed and never really realized that I AM an emotional eater. Laundry is piled up to the ceiling and I know Pedro works 11-7 and needs to sleep during the day, but I need to so things too! Like laundry for example and dishes, and keep up with the house. I am going back to work on Monday and with no help everything will go to HELL! I mean I literally do everything, from cooking and cleaning to taking out the trash and laundry. I do all the grocery shopping, errand running and still manage to diet and exercise, but I need some help every now and then. I'm trying to get laundry done and the baby won't stop crying so what am I to do? I tell her I'm sorry but it won't get done if I don't do it and continue what I am doing. All she wanted was to be held and I hold her ALL DAY LONG, but when I have to do stuff, yea I let her cry a little bit. So he comes out of the bedroom all PISSED off telling me that I am not the only one who does stuff aroud here. I tell him, he's wrong, the only thing he does is sleep and take care of the kids from about 9:30 am-11am so I can go to the gym. And that right there, is the only break I get until I go to bed. What happens when I go back to work monday? He'll be realizing what a whole hell of a lot of work I do...and how easy he has had it. My job is a lot more demanding compared to his. And I make about double what he makes. I have to be on my toes all the time, making rounds of the units and making sure these guys aren't hanging or killing each other, what does he do? He operates a machine? I'm just so frustrated that he doesn't see all the work I do and appreciate me more. So after he started yelling at me, I start raiding the fridge and eat about 600 calories for lunch....Way over what I normally do. Eeerr... Why are men soooo frustrating?

    Hey Jo, you know sometimes we are our own worst enemy. We have to learn to take things in stride. You have a lot to handle but realistically can only handle one item at a time. Try not to feel like you need to do everything all the time. I know easier said than done. It does take effort and you still have a little one depending on you as well. The baby's schedule is usually set by your schedule. So try to develop a schedule that allows baby time, chore time and most importantly you time. Take a real deep breath, close your eyes and exhale. Our men do what they do because we do or don't do what we do. We're either going to compliment or criticize each other. You choose.

Take care Sweetie.

    I sure know how you feel about having to do everything! It's that way here, too, but, I have one advantage, no children left living at home and he sleeps like a rock so I can do laundry, dishes, vacuum (which I usually don't do just because I worry it will wake him). I agree with the other post, that maybe you can bundle baby up and go for a walk. The work doesn't get done, but, you don't eat, and you get exercise. Maybe it will put the baby to sleep, too, so when you get home you can get some things done. Also, if doing laundry wakes him up, then take it to a laundromat. You and baby can make as much noise as you want there! You can take a book to read to baby, or some toys.

    Do you pray? I know when feeling frustrated going to the refrigerator is calming...a stress reliever, but that's not the answer. If you go to the fridge try and only grab an apple and a glass of milk. Maybe, depending on the weather and the age of your child/children go for a walk around the block to clear your mind. I'm not exactly sure why men act the way they do, but communication is the key. I would suggest trying to sit down and talk a few minutes before going to the gym without yelling at each other to let him know exactly how you feel. Let me know how that goes.
