my 1st weigh in.

Thursday, June 07, 2012

I was originally planning to weigh in on Monday night before I worked out, but it completely slipped my mind. When I went to work out tonight I remembered that I hadn't weighed myself this week. I stepped on the scale not expecting to see the number drop much if at all, but I looked down and was shocked! I stepped off the scale and stepped back on again and couldn't believe my eyes - 5 lbs. I couldn't believe it. I was so happy! I haven't been doing well with my eating and had missed a day or 2 of my workouts because I work out at work and due to construction our room had been closed (and will again this weekend) but I was so happy to see the # drop. I had kind of lost some motivation but seeing the lbs already dropping really lit my motivation fire again!


week 1 complete

Monday, June 04, 2012

So I just realized that tonight is my 1st weigh-in. I know it's only week 1 but I am kind of excited (that is if I can get to the scale). I was good earlier this week - making sure I got my exercise, but my food choices were not so hot - each day I hit my daily calories, fat, carbs, ect pretty quick, but I tried to keep it to min. Most days I went over, but not by much. I would be sitting entering my food and go, "is that really what i ate today?". Wow, I had no idea I was consuming that much!

So I guess with my gym being "out of order" right now, maybe I should focus on eating a little better this week. Less food (because I seem to eat ALOT) and less fatty foods (that seems to be a trend for me too) .

    Sounds like you're doing great so far! I feel the exact same about my food intake - I cant believe some of the stuff i've been eating! If the gym isnt working for you I find yoga really works, and you dont even need to leave the house to do it. Good luck

  you should be proud of yourself for pushing and challanging yourself. things even out as you learn the have and have not's. as far as the gym i find walking the best thing ever. you just walk out the front door and go till you can and then return. emoticon emoticon emoticon

Late night!

Monday, June 04, 2012

Work has been crazy lately so I thought I would take an extra night to work out and maybe relieve some stress. I typically work out at work in our little "gym" that has several pieces of cardio equipment. To my surprise tonight, it's being used for storage while they re-carpet and re-paint the interior of our building - YUCK!

I am not one to work out once I get home. When I get home all I want to do is relax. So having a gym at work has been beneficial to me. Knowing that the re-doing of things at work is going to go on for about 2-3 weeks has suddenly discouraged me. Our gym area could be tied up that entire time. I know I shouldn't become this discouraged, but it makes me want to give up right away, like someone put a road block in my way and I can't get through. I know it's not my only avenue of getting some exercise but it's the easiest way. Knowing that I can go to work, complete my 10 hour shift and then go release all the happenings of the day on the elliptical gives me hope, but I don't want to have the hope going into work each day, wondering if the stuff is going to be moved or not.

So my stress levels are still high and it's 2 am. I can't sleep and sleep is important, especially to me :) . So here I sit complaining on my blog to hopefully get out some stuff and maybe sleep a bit.

I hope this works - - there is probably so much more I could rant about right now, but you would be reading forever. :)

Being a night owl can be nice, I can get things done at night with no distractions from the rest of the work and good TV shows are limited at night but my biggest struggle when coming home from work at 10pm is food!

I always seem to come home and have some kind of craving. Sometimes it's for something sweet, other times its for something salty. Sometimes I give my self that something sweet or salty and then decide I want the other thing too. Tonight I came home, had a half of PB&J to get my something sweet (heavier on the J/lighter on the P) then I decided I needed something salty and had myself some chips and cheese.

I know I shouldn't be eating this late, but I don't know what to do, I am just so hungry when I get home. I have been trying to keep my portions small but I feel like I am gorging because it's one small thing after the other. Then it's more than a full meal for me.

My self control right now when it comes to food right now really bites!

    Night time munchies are a problem for me at times as I too am a night owl. I generally try drinking a flavored water without any carbs or calories first; however find sometimes the urge to eat is greater. On those ocassions I try to eat some veggies or a couple of crackers with some cheese spread if I still have some calories or carbs left yet, meaning the high range of the food tracker.

1st night at the gym.

Tuesday, May 29, 2012

Monday night (tonight - I am a night owl and posting after midnight) I hit the gym for the 1st time in my new endeavor. I was feeling pretty good about it so I hopped on the elliptical. I amazingly made it 20 full minutes. I probably could have gone longer, but I didn't want to push it. I am sure I will feel this in the morning.

Good night SP.
