I have had it! I hate Wednesday's!!!!!

Wednesday, June 08, 2011

I am done with that evil scale! I just don't know what on earth I am doing wrong! I have been here a month now but I have not lost 1 pound. This the same thing that happened to me before. I did it for over a month and nothing finally I just said forget it. I have been working my butt off and my butt (and belly) are not coming off! I don't get it.

How do you do it? Can somebody tell me what I am doing wrong?

    Don't give up! I have recently hit a plateau too and am looking for some advice. Some suggestions I have heard are to make sure I am strength training, and watching sodium intake. Also, if you have been doing the same cardio routine for awhile, it may be time to switch it up a bit. Adding intervals is always a great place to start. Good luck, and stay strong!!

look familiar? it's from your page...you have been at this for a month, you HAVE to give yourself time to adjust, it's not going to happen overnight...are you tracking all your food/ calories? what how about protein/ carbs/ fat? remember, the quality is what counts, not the quantity....
how is your strength training going? are you doing 2-3 times/week?
what type of cardio are you doing? are you changing it up? all these things add up, and it is going to take some time, but, if you stick with it, it WILL happen...i was at 155lbs, at one time, we ALL have a starting point, BUT, you can and you will succeed!!
now, step away from the scale, and also remember, that is not the only way to measure progress, and you are NOT the number that shows up on it emoticon emoticon

    I didn't lose a pound for almost 3 months you just can't give up. If I had I wouldn't be at SP. Just keep going. I'm supposed to lose 7 more pounds by the end of the month for my vacation. If I don't hit it I'll be disappointed but I'll exercise while on vacation and try not to gain it all back.

Can't wait for the next two weeks to be over

Tuesday, June 07, 2011

The next two weeks with my classes, my daughters school functions, her dance recital is just jammed. I cannot wait til it is over. I was going to let the kids to a summer activity but no WE ARE TAKING THE SUMMER OFF!!! We did soccer last year and it was fun but I need a break, no running. It is relax and playtime. My daughter is doing a safetytown program for 2 weeks in July but this is very important. It teaches safety issues, stranger danger and stuff like that. Once that is over. We are done. I will be doing our summer "school" but that is easy because we are home. We will go to parks and go bike riding/walking. But only because we want not because we are obligated. No more stress (at least in this area). Oh I just can't wait to sleep in!!!!!!

Got it done

Monday, June 06, 2011

I didn't get to exercise this morning because my son was so pitaful. His one ear was so swollen. I Thought he was having an allergic reaction so I gave him some benydrl. It ending up his ear was sunburnt. I thought I put enough sunscreen on his ears, I feel so horrible. It was only the one ear and we put some cream on it and it looks better.

So I just forced myself to exercise. I am so tired. It took everything in me to do it. I normally do 30 min of major cardio (kickboxing, jumprpoing...) I just couldn't. I barely got through 10 min kickboxing. SO I did 15 min of just walking briskly throughout the house. Then I did about 10-15 min of sweeping, moping, dishes. I did do my toning too. I did it...the best I could.

    Unplanned events are always going to come up and make it harder to exercise. I admire you for doing any exercise at all, it takes a lot of dedication to what you did.

I hope your sons ear is better now. emoticon

I look like a lobster

Sunday, June 05, 2011

I spent the mid morning/afternoon doing yard work while the kids/dog played in the pool. Great Exercise! I mowed the lawn since my hubby is still broken. I noticed something quite great! Last year when I tried to mow (we have a push mower) I had a hard time starting and pushing it. I would have to stop 1-2 times and my lawn is big but not that big. Well I had no trouble this time. I started it and got the back done in about 20 minutes. I am so happy with myself. I did get a little burnt on my shoulders though. Oh well, it will turn into a tan emoticon

I think I am going to try some yoga today. I just printed some poses that look kinda fun!!!

Feel so much better today!

Saturday, June 04, 2011

I am glad yesterday is over! I feel so much better. I am about to take my daughter ballet/tap class, so I think my son and I will go for a 30 min walk around there. I have a bunch of work around the house inside and out so I will def make up for yesterday. At least I was able to get one video in and I did eat all 5 servings of fruit and veggies and drank 8 cups of water. I was below my calorie intake but I wasn't in the mood for eating that much. It should ofset since I didn't do much but sit around the house.

Hope everyone has a great weeknd!
