What a weekend......

Monday, October 22, 2012

So I thought the weekend would be great. I had the whole weekend off from work and no plans except some relaxation. No such luck. My husband and I had arguments from the minute I got home from work Friday morning until yesterday when I left. I'm not sure what is going to happen but what is happening now just isn't working for either of us. So much fighting is stressing me out so much. My diet was a total bust for the last few days. I haven't even stepped onto the scale. I will on my regular weigh in day to see how I have done. I am back on track today thank goodness. Hopefully things will smooth out but if not I will be ok. I just have a lot to figure out.

    Take time for you to come up with what you really want, ideas for resolution or action, and then talk it through. Wishing you the best possible outcome.

So proud of myself!

Saturday, October 06, 2012

I am so proud of myself. I have tried time and time again to lose weight only to give up after the first few days. It has been about three weeks and I am still going strong. I weighed this morning and found that I have lost another 2 pounds. Yay me!! I haven't even cut anything out of my diet. Except soda, that is gone. I have just cut down on the regular foods that I have always eaten. I do watch what I eat and try to make better choices. I am incorporating more fruits and vegetables. I am trying to eat less processed food. But I have had a McD's burger and Krystals in the last three weeks. In three weeks I have lost 13 pounds. Next I need to make working out a habit. I seem to always make excuses to not exercise. I don't know why either, I always feel so much better after a good workout. It'll come though, I'm not worried. Little changes at a time. So proud of me!!!!

Lost some momentum this week.......

Thursday, October 04, 2012

So I was feeling so bad this week, I haven't worked out very much and I have eaten out a couple of times. Like a " big mac and fries" kinda eating out. Last night I had some krystal burgers and fries. Today was my weigh in day and I lost another pound which I am very proud of since I haven't really been trying that hard. I am really gonna put my best into it this week and get back on the wagon. I'm hoping for a two pound weight loss this week. Woo hoo, I'll be checking back in a week from now.

Working out = motivation to eat better.

Monday, September 24, 2012

I just finished a 5 mile walk with Leslie. I love her videos. I always feel so much better after I work out. I feel like eating healthier and drinking my water after a good workout too. I always have to talk myself into working out though. I tell myself everyday that I am going to work out first thing in the morning but it never happens that way. I always wait until late into the afternoon. Of course I am just starting out so it hasnt became a habit yet. I have completed my first week and I lost eight pounds. I cut out soda completely and have been eating the same types of food as I always do but I am only eating one portion. I have added more whole wheat, fruit, and vegetables. Wish me the best for my week 2 weigh in......it's coming up very quick!!

    Way to go! emoticon I find the same thing.. its like once you start working out you kinda think about what you are eating more and crave healthier things. I know I do. Its like.. you start thinking about how much effort and working out it would take to burn off what you are eating.

I find working out inspires me to eat better as well. I don't want all that hard work to go to waste.

Day 1- Eye on the prize!

Wednesday, September 12, 2012

I have never written a blog before, so here goes. Today is my start day. I saw a picture that really spoke to me "in a year from today you'll wish you had started a year ago". My 32nd birthday was on the 10th and I said that to myself, before I had read that. I'm beginning today. I have given up the wish that I will lose weight. I have found that wishing isn't doing it for me. I have to do this myself. I have to do it for myself. I'm so tired of being miserable. I haven't a shred of confidence in any area of my life. I will change that. No more feeling like this --- emoticon More to come.....
