Not a Gain so its a good day

Friday, March 01, 2013

Well I got on the scale this morning for the first time in three weeks. I had a bad week the week of my birthday/ Valentines Day so I didn't weigh in then. And the following week I was scared that it went up and I would be discouraged so I didn't get on then either. So anyways, today I was down! Only about a pound in three weeks BUT its not a gain so I'm happy. I've been trying to be more active with the kids at school instead of doing seated activities, but I haven't actually been working out. My goal this following week is to work out, a REAL workout at least twice. So I've accomplished my mini goal to be under 200 by Ellie's birthday. So I think I will set a new goal to be 195 by her birthday. That's only about 4 pounds in a month. Maybe this will help me stay motivated. Would love to be like 175 before I have to put on a swimsuit.

Need motivation

Monday, February 25, 2013

I have been doing ok but not great lately. Using the spark app has helped me a lot to keep tracking while at work and on the go but then I am not on the full site and missing that motivation and inspiration. I do really good with eating for like three or four days then mess up but I try not to beat myself up about it. I also need to start moving more. It always makes me feel better when I work out just need it to become habit. Well maybe writing my thoughts down will help me get motivated. Here is to tomorrow.

    You can do it! Just take it one day at a time. Each new day is a chance for a new start.

Day three

Saturday, January 05, 2013

I almost beat myself up today for not doing as well as I had wanted to do. I went to a basketball game with my husband, sister and nephew. My car broke down on the way and we were almost two hours from home. I was upset and disappointed about missing most the game because my nephew was bummed out. I had already decided I would let myself indulge a little for lunch/dinner because it was a late lunch early dinner and didn't think I would eat again. I calculated everything before I ate and only ate what I logged. Then at home I started to get hungry and had a granola bar at about 7. I almost started grazing on everythign in site because I was stressing about not having a perfect day, and then I reminded myself that had I not calculated at all today I would have had a terrible day. I would have ate scrambled eggs not egg whites and ten slices of bacon instead of two. I would have ate the cheddar bacon fries and about three rolls at Texas Roadhouse instead of a side salad and one roll. I would have also ate the entire meal instead of half. I made MANY good choices today and I am going to focus on that instead of that fact that I went over my goal a little. I saved A LOT of calories and fat compared to what a normal day out would have been AND I worked out too! When I started to beat myself up I instead played with my daughter and praised God (as I do everyday, all day) for giving her to me. I would say it was a good day. emoticon

To a fresh start

Friday, January 04, 2013

I am ready to do this again. I am. I don't always feel like eating the right things or working out but its got to be done. I hate where I have let myself get to, I am so uncomfortable. I have done really well for two days in a row and I already have tomorrow planned out so I feel good about that too. I will make a menu plan for next week before shopping Sunday and make sure I have lots of healthy snacks to choose from. I am actually kinda a little excited. I CAN DO THIS.

Last week, this is harder than I thought it would be.

Sunday, January 17, 2010

Well I have been at it a full week now. I had set my cal. goal at 1800 this week because I didn't what to go from eating everything in site to eating 1300 cal. Next week (starting tomorrow) I will try for less than 1600. And I made my workout goal, to workout at least twice. I only did twice but at least I made the goal. This week my goal is to workout three times. It is so hard to get off the couch and workout. I just want to love and kiss and hug my baby girl all day. After work I come home and just hold her for hours. I miss her so much when I am at work I can't imagine what it is going to be like when she is gone. At least at work I know I am going home at 3:15 and I can see her. When she is gone I don't know when I will see her again. I find comfort in the fact that I will see her but only God knows how long I will have to wait. I just know I can't keep doing what I was doing before or I will be over 200lbs in no time. I am tired of my clothes not fitting me. Being uncomfortable is just one more thing to upset me and I don't need that right now. I always saw myself as being a fit active mom and doing those mommy workouts with the baby. Now I am here and I don't want to move. I can't workout with Lilly because she doesn't have the muscle tone to be moved like that. I wish it were warm out so we could go for walks. I pray she gets to see a nice sunny summer day, and go for a ride in the stroller. I just thought this would be so easy because I stayed active during my pregnancy. My goal was to be within five pounds of my pre-preg. weight by the new year and instead I am the biggest I have ever been. People tell me no to worry and no one cares and everyone understands. But that is not what I want. I don't want to use her as an excuse to be unhealthy. It will be hard enough to deal with losing her I don't need to add the stress of being overweight and unhealthy to the mix. Not to mention the fact that we will want to have a baby again. I am not going to get pregnant at this weight, NO WAY. I just have to make time for me as hard as that is right now I need to do it. Here's to another week, I pray this gets easier.
