Weigh in Wednesday

Thursday, December 18, 2014

I didn't lose but didn't gain!

I took a tape and measured myself against the my measurements a few months ago. I lost quite a few inches!
Very encouraging when the scale lets you down all though I didn't do so great this week so it's mostly my own fault!


Weigh in Wednesday!

Wednesday, December 10, 2014

2lbs down from last Wednesday!

According to the scale it's actually a couple of ounces from 2 entire lbs but I'm rounding up bc I can!!
I'm very happy with that.
Less than 2 weeks ago I was soo bloated and felt so hopeless but I'm starting to feel less bloated and plain ol better.

I'd like to restart chalean but do it consecutively but whenever I feel like it... not every dang day like I'm supposed to bc the moment I don't do it just one day I feel like not doing it at all.

I also want to introduce my 4yr old to the wii. If she got hooked on that rather than watching my little pony cartoons it wouldn't be a horrible thing!

It's supposed to snow today and I have a cold but I want to work out. Stay warm!

Only one goal for December

Friday, December 05, 2014

My goal for this month is to stick with my plan!

So many times I lose the first five pounds and get off track. I don't know why but its so typical of me. It's like I self sabotage.

That's why my goal for this month is simple. Stay on track! Keep doing what I started doing! I'm peeking at the scale and like what I see. Keep going!

Tracking helps me so much. I always see results when I track my food intake and stay under. It's also not that hard. Yesterday I had Unos pizza but I portioned accordingly and the next day the scale went down. I actually ate way under my calories (not on purpose) but at least I didn't go over and that's the point. I knew not to order soda or eat more breadsticks. I didn't want or crave dessert. Before bed I drank water and that was enough for me. Today I'm having sushi for lunch and it will be fun calculating what to eat. It's not a chore, and it's not that hard! emoticon

I feel like I had an AHA moment!

Thursday, December 04, 2014

I spent most of October and November stressing about my weight but not doing much. Things always seemed to get in the way. Migraines, colds, work, doc appts, chores..etc.

Why do I always have something getting in the way?

I started out December with a one day detox. It should have been longer but I also found out this month I am a bit of a wuss when it comes to cleanses. "It was a rough day" is an understatement.

The next day toxins must have left my body and brain because I was thinking a lot clearer. I had an epiphany! I realized that I felt a lack of balance in my approach. I want be healthy and lose weight but I also want to do it in a way that makes sense to me. So many people have lost weight and kept it off without having to feel like crap to do so. They didn't have to go to extremes and live so rigidly for the rest of their lives. While I understand the importance of healthy eating and staying at an adequate weight I want to do so without making food my entire focus or life. I just want this to be something I overcome and then go about my life. I also want to make it as fun as possible. So involving my family and coming up with interesting new recipes. Also I don't want to fall into the whole 'things having to be organic, no sugar, no salt, no preservatives ever' way of thinking. We live in an imperfect world where our food is imperfect too. I want to make the best of it to MY STANDARDS. And its ok to have my own standards of what is good. I'm a rational, thinking person. I should be able to make rules for myself for what works and doesn't work in my diet. I am intending to do just that. Anyways that's my mini rant/vent/introspective thoughts!

Have a wonderful day!

    Best wishes for reaching your goals. I like that you said "my rules"
We can pick and choose and adapt to fit our lifestyle.

    All in balance! :) As you stay consistent you'll see that you will start feeling better. Focusing in results only sets us for failure. One thing that has helped me is focusing on my health versus my weight.Eventually I will get there and you will too! If we focus on other important things in our life everything will fall into place. After years of worrying I'm just not so eager to get to my goal in 3 months, who am I kidding? LOL while living in this system of things nothing will ever be 100% right and we can't obsess over our daily lives including food. Once we find what works best for us it'll be a part of you. But we have to make smart choices along the way if we want to get to our destination. I know I'm not one to say because I have yet to get there myself, but after eliminating all the negatives and adopting new habits I now know what holds me back from reaching my goals and I plan to do something about it and I am :) also we all deserve the best, why should we accept anything less? Same concept should be how we nourish ourselves, all within our reach and exercising balance. Looking forward to seeing your progress.. emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon
