Lost 1.4

Wednesday, June 18, 2014

Good job me! Goal was 2lbs but that's ok i think i can make it up next week.

THis week i realized that if i can get past the first 5 minutes on the bike i can go for at least 30 mins. its just those first five minutes that are grueling...

Afterwards i felt pretty great!

    Those first minutes, where our bodies are screaming at us "you can't honestly do this!" are the hardest. Good on you for pushing past and refusing to believe the lie! :D

week #7 -1.6 lb!

Monday, April 14, 2014

Woohoo! I lost 1.6lbs emoticon

This week I can thank my wisdom teeth for my loss. It really should be more but I weighed in mid day and after breakfast and coffee. The first couple of days I was on a liquid diet so as you know that makes you lose lots of water weight really fast. I did start eating more "normally" a couple of days ago. Only chewing on one side but I did eat. emoticon

I can't say I made the best decisions because honestly I just ate what I could...soft foods and lots of gingerale to keep the nausea at bay. This week I ate lots of mashed potatoes and peanut butter chocolate banana smoothies.

What I did right!

I did not indulge in lots of ice cream but instead ate Greek yogurt. I also ate mostly home cooked foods.

Hopefully I will start feeling back to normal soon. I've been feeling achy and tired so no exercise but the beautiful weather did send me outside more than usual to take the little one to the park where I kept active.

I hope you all have a wonderful week!

wisdom teeth

Friday, April 11, 2014

So I decided that my wisdom teeth finally had to go after causing me much pain and discomfort for a while now.

I was putting it off for quite some time since one of them was impacted and I was scared. but I was worried that they'd hurt the nearby molars (they didn't).

So today is day 2 and I have a swollen face, some pain, and on a liquid diet. However, I feel so much better than I did this morning. The pain meds were making me sick and I felt like death. I was nauseous, dizzy and throwing up and on top of it all a frikkin migraine!

But my migraine is finally gone and I stopped taking pain meds and my nausea and vomiting is gone so I feel so much better.
I rather put up with a bit of pain.

Hopefully I'll feel back to normal and eating solids soon.

Have a great weekend sparkfriends!

    Awe, I hope your pain is under control. Vomiting is quite normal after, usually a mix of swallowed blood and Tylenol 3. Advil is much easier, and reduces inflammation. I
I hope you have a speedy recovery! I am a dental assistant, although out of practice since I had the babies.. But if you have any random questions, I'd be happy to help!
Take care! After a week you'll be a new woman! :)

week #6 update -1lb

Monday, April 07, 2014

...just a pound this week but it's better to go slow and steady rather than gaining so I'm still happy! Also this week is TOM so I am usually bloated and eating too much but I still managed to see the scale go down and that is great!
emoticon emoticon

This week I will attempt to get out more and walk everyday. Hopefully the weather cooperates. Today I'm taking the little one to the park and running a few local errands.

What I need to work on:
I only worked out once last week. I need to up this to at least 3. Got to sweat!

What I did right this week:

I gave away the pesky chocolate covered pecans to my skinny mom! LOL

Cut back on snacking and avoided bread for the most part. I substituted with Ezekiel bread which I can hardly notice the difference to be honest!

Also, I tried the brown rice tortillas for taco night and they were pretty good.
My hubby and I had a date night this week and went to Olive garden. There, I chose the wheat pasta over regular pasta! That was a good choice for me. We also shared a small dessert.

I had water with my meal. I've been drinking a lot of water by the way!

So basically this week I made small changes but they actually paid off and they didn't feel like sacrifices. It was totally fine and doable. I am so glad I lost some weight and didn't gain or stay the same. Although my weight loss is going slowly at least I'm doing it and making changes in my way of living which I hope and believe they will stick forever!
I hope you all have a great week sparkfriends!

    way to go chica! it's incredible that those changes made such a big difference for your weigh in. Keep up the good work.

    Never undermine your weight loss-be proud of that pound! But much more importantly never undermine ANY step forward, any positive change, or any achievements--they are fabulous in and of themselves--no matter how "small" they seem to others--they are huge feats, because you made the right choice! And hey, you made a bunch of them this week--they pay, don't rely just on the scale (even though that does change according to our lifestyles which is nice! :) . Just KNOW you are doing wonders for you, your body, the ones you making those positive & healthy changes! Keep it going! :) emoticon
