Last day of week three- Left the 170's behind:)

Saturday, February 20, 2010

Well this has been a kick butt week for me. I finally hit 169.6 and left the 170's after about 3 months. I hope to never see them again. I really feel like I am in the zone again.

Next mini/ medium goal is to make the 70 lb. mark 3.2 more pounds to go:)

so for the last time this week:

1. keep on not drinking soda. Lots of water!!!! - NO POP- 8 cups of water!!!!!!

2. Try to get more sleep!! 7 HRS. LAST NIGHT

3. Make it to the gym 4 days this week. made it all 4 days !!!woo hoo!!!!

4. Start everyday with an inspirational song. Today my song was "The Power inside of Me " from The Mirror has 2 faces soundtrack.

"never knew what I could be- never felt the power inside of me, now I stand in awe to wonder that the mirror couldn't see- I have the power inside of me"

5. Blog everyday this week- something positive I accomplished even if it's small!! i'M DOING THAT NOW - SO YES,,,, missed Tuesday but blogged 2x on Wednesday.

6. Reward myself if I do a B or better this week. TODAY IS AN A stayed out of the junk food, even after me and the hubs had a minor tiff.

Over all grade for the week is an A- Reward - bought some new mp3's from I tunes.

    I am so excited for you! This really has been an awesome week for you. I love the scale picture. I hope you don't mind but I'm going to use that idea for when I get under 200. I'm feeling very inspired by you tonight, you've got me thinking about fine tuning my plans. Something to sleep on. Congratulations on all of your success!

The tag says what??????

Friday, February 19, 2010



Hey peeps:
Well, today was an awesome day for me. I finally hit below 171.4 lbs. after trying for 2 months. So far this month I have lost 8lbs. Really psyched about that. Then as a reward I bought myself some new gym clothes, cause I was swimming in the old ones:) I got some Capri's and some boot-cuts and my butt squeezed quite easily into mediums size 8-10. I'm guessing that brand may run big but it felt beyond awesome to see a single digit on that tag, plus they make my legs look faboo. Then for extra fun I cleaned out my closet of more fat clothes to donate to good will, and tried on some stuff and I fit into a dress I wore on my honeymoon in 1999. it was a little bunchy in places, but it sure made the hubby smile. I only have 13 lbs. to go until I weigh less then I did on my wedding day!!!! After struggling for months, I feel back in control- thanks to The Spark and all you awesome people. I'm actually looking forward to bathing suit season this year.

so here's the stats:


1. keep on not drinking soda. Lots of water!!!! - NO POP- 8 cups of water!!!!!!

2. Try to get more sleep!! 4 HRS. LAST NIGHT - curse you One Tree Hill -season 3

3. Make it to the gym 4 days this week. made it all 4 days !!!woo hoo!!!!

4. Start everyday with an inspirational song. Today my song was "Move Along" by the All- American rejects:) -best elliptical song ever!!!!

"when all you gotta keep is strong, move along, move along like you always do.----fight back what is wrong- we move along."

5. Blog everyday this week- something positive I accomplished even if it's small!! i'M DOING THAT NOW - SO YES,,,, missed Tuesday but blogged 2x on Wednesday.

6. Reward myself if I do a B or better this week. TODAY IS AN A went to the gym, stayed out of the junk food. actually talked myself out of a binge!!!!!!!!

Thursday update for week 3

Thursday, February 18, 2010

So, Ok today went really well. I stayed within my calorie range, I had an over 500 calorie burn workout , and I drank a ton of water.

All because I am dying to read .

There is this little angst filled fan fiction story that I am addicted to ,seriously, love this story. I jump up and down when I get a updated chapter alert in my email. Well, as you may or may not know, 171.4 has been staring me down for quite a while now and I am so through with the 170's. I told the hubs that I was really gonna push it this week and he said, "yeah, OK " like he didn't believe me so without thinking I told him and my son that I wouldn't read the next chapter of my story until i broke that number, and of course, right after I said this she updated - new chapter, a new chapter that I can't read yet. So I am desperately hoping that the scale moves tomorrow, so I can read my much awaited chapter on the treadmill !!!!

Hey, whatever works-

now for the run down-

1. keep on not drinking soda. Lots of water!!!! - NO POP- 8 cups of water!!!!!!

2. Try to get more sleep!! 5 HRS. LAST NIGHT - crappy, but oh well

3. Make it to the gym 4 days this week. 3 down, 1 to go.

4. Start everyday with an inspirational song. Today my song was "So What" by PINK. Cause she rocks it so hard and It always makes me smile:)

5. Blog everyday this week- something positive I accomplished even if it's small!! i'M DOING THAT NOW - SO YES,,,, missed Tuesday but blogged 2x on Wednesday.

6. Reward myself if I do a B or better this week. TODAY IS AN A+ went to the gym, stayed out of the junk food.

Great day- major win, hoping the scale makes me happy dance tomorrow.

love ya, Jules

Rough Day- staying strong

Wednesday, February 17, 2010

Today is my Bio dad's birthday. He committed suicide 5 years ago. We had a different relationship, He and my mother divorced when I was three, and I was raised by my mom and step dad who was the best father ever and that i love very much. My dad suffered from sever depression my entire life and also prescription drug addiction, most of the time. But he could also be really great and came though for me a lot of times when I really needed him, despite his problems, I know he loved me very much. Before he died we had really become closer, the last thing he ever said to me was I love you. I still really miss him and I hate that he quit on me, and that my sons will never know him. I inherited some of his depression issues, fortunately, not the drug issues though. I also inherited his sense of humor, sarcastic wit, and love of water and fascination with all things electronic.

Today was a rough day, but I survived, and i didn't even binge or have a mini breakdown. I am determined to do what it takes to have a healthy life, and going to the gym and eating better, helps my mental and physical health.


So here goes:


1. keep on not drinking soda. Lots of water!!!! - NO POP- 8 cups of water!!!!!!

2. Try to get more sleep!! 4 HRS. LAST NIGHT - crappy, but oh well

3. Make it to the gym 4 days this week. 2 down, 2 to go.

4. Start everyday with an inspirational song. Today my song was Swim- by Jack's mannequin

"You have to swim, swim in the dark, there's no shame in drifting, feel the tide shifting and wait for the SPARK, you've gotta swim, don't let yourself sink, look toward the horizon, I promise it's not as far as you think, The currents will drag you away from your love , just keep your head above - Swim" (best anti-suicide song ever)

5. Blog everyday this week- something positive I accomplished even if it's small!! i'M DOING THAT NOW - SO YES,,,, missed Tuesday,

6. Reward myself if I do a B or better this week. TODAY IS AN B- didn't go to the gym, but didn't binge and today that was a major win.


Love you all- remember Suicide is a permanent solution to a temporary problem. Don't give in, and don't give up.

Jules

    It really sounds like you have taken so may positives from your life with your Dad, and truly honour his memory by focusing on those. I love how you continue to honour him and yourself by choosing better choices for you every day. Wishing you a wonderful weekend. emoticon

    I'm glad your staying strong, even in the face of grief. I know how hard that can be. You are inspiring me to keep going and not let life's speed bumps get me off track. You are right taking care of yourself helps mentally and physically (I'm going to have to remember that myself).I'm definitely going to have to check out that song too. Keep on rocking it girl!

    Hey Jules. Good for you for making it through. I hate hearing about your bio Dad. I honestly don't know anyone who's life hasn't been touched by suicide in some way.

YOU ROCK!!!
