Weekly goals!

Sunday, February 17, 2013

Since I majorly struggled with motivation last week I decided to make some weekly goals in order to start this week off right!
1. Drink Water! As much as I can! Nothing else besides two cups of coffee!
2. Gym - 4x this week....30 min cardio with 20 min weights!
3. Track Everything that goes in my mouth!
4. Stay within my calorie range and on the lower side!
5. Get 7-8 hrs of sleep EVERY night!
I am hoping to be down the 2 pounds I was up by weigh in on Saturday and be below 200 by my daughter 's birthday on the 27th! I CAN do this!

Weight Gain --- Positive Thoughts!

Wednesday, February 13, 2013

So when I stepped on the scale this morning and saw my weight gain of 1.8lbs I felt the immediate pangs of dissapointment and hopelessness. I decided right then and there that I WOULD not let myself fall into the trap of the same pattern of quitting and depression that always comes from my first gain after starting to lose again. SO I turned my thoughts around! I started to think about how great I have been feeling, how my clothes are fitting better, how I can put on the coat that I haven't wore since BEFORE I was pregnant! How even with this weight gain I am no where near where I was. How 1.8lbs isn't even 2 pounds and if I work SUPER hard this week I can still be in ONEderland by my baby girl's first birthday next weekend. I have said it a thousand times, this is MY time, I AM DOING IT, no matter how long or how many times I mess up I am sticking with this until it becomes a lifestyle NOT a diet! So here I go....ready to take on the world and have an AMAZING week...I might even weigh in on Monday's again so I don't have the excuse of not weighing in until Wed and cheating on the weekend. I can do this, I am doing this for me!!! :)

    sometimes our weight fluctuates. if we see a 1 time weight gain as a reason to quit we are robbing ourselves of so many opportunities to make better choices.

    Me too! Almost exactly- I have an old fashioned scale so I can't tell decimal points. But it was definitely about 2 lbs that I gained. Initially I was very disappointed, but like you I decided to use it to motivate myself to get back on track. Thank you so much for your positive attitude!

    That's fantastic! Just keep thinking positively like that and you'll get there. Maybe the pound was just water weight or maybe even muscle...you never know. As long as the clothes is fitting and feeling good, that's all that matters! Don't give up! emoticon emoticon

    Don't let the scale control your life. It's how you feel. and Muscle weighs more than fat.

    One thing to also remember is that you might be losing fat but gaining muscle with increased exercise and in time that will balance. The more muscle the more you will burn fat.
I am glad you are seeing that the numbers are less important than how you are feeling and the fact you are losing inches. WTG!!!!
This is your time and be happy for you.
Hugs and smiles

Busy = Rough Weekend :(

Monday, February 11, 2013

Well I really struggled this weekend with having way too many events and obligations, all of which involved over eating. I am paying for it today...feeling really tired and belly aching, ugh! Not letting it ruin my week though...starting my day out right by getting on here as soon as I could and setting up goals for the day and week. One bump doesn't give me an excuse to crash my car! :)

It's Amazing!

Thursday, February 07, 2013

I find it so amazing that I can feel like such a huge, fat, ugly blob when I am eating bad and not working out. And yet, feel smaller, happier, healthier, more energetic and just generally better when I am staying within my calorie allowance and working out pretty consistently. Why then do I ever not want to keep up with this lifestyle change....clearly the perks outweigh the negatives. I am still heavier than I want to be...I remember feeling SO huge at 180 and now I would do ANYTHING to get back there...it is all in perspective, but let me tell you, this time I WILL be HAPPY about every accomplishment and I will REVEL in this feeling of happiness and healthiness!!! We have been given a good life and I am planning on living it!!!

    You have the best attitude and are so motivating Jeetsa! This is something I was thinking about last night- healthy living has so many more benefits than just weight loss, and yet I know I often act as if that's the only reason I'm doing it. But the reality is I feel soooo much better when I am living a healthy lifestyle, no matter what my weight is. Thank you so much for sharing, and for being my first ever Sparkfriend! (Well, I guess second- behind SparkGuy :))

Wednesday, February 06, 2013

This morning I stepped on the scale and was down to 201.6!!! I can't imagine how excited I will be when I see that 199.? because I was doing a happy dance all morning just to be this close lol! I cannot wait to be down 1 more pound and be at my 10 pound mark as well as well as my first goal! I am finally feeling like this is working for me...it isn't quick or easy, but nothing worth having is right? Have a great week everyone, I know I will :)

    Congratulations on the progress! And an early congratulations on that more lb that will get you over 10 lbs lost! Those little goals the whole time always keep me going - they are such a motivator! Be sure to treat yourself with something special (but not necessarily unhealthy!) when you hit your little victories!
