A new week - a new start.

Sunday, March 28, 2010

Last week sucked- Some of it totally my fault, some out of my control. Schedule at work was insane this week. Inventory on Tuesday was a buffet for lunch and had some split shifts due to classes. I ate at MC Donald's, Wendy's and BK this week and ate way too many brownies and rice crispy treats- PMSing but still, I was such a pig. Did not work out at all, even on Tuesday when I was actually at the Y already for my kids swim lessons. I feel like an absolute slug, bloated and miserable. I am really behind on my goal now - WHICH MEANS............

I have to get off my butt and get back on track starting right this minute. I'm gonna fill my water bottle, pack my lunch for tommorrow and drag my a** out of bed early tomorrow to hit that elliptical. Plus my hubby said if I lose 5lbs. this week he'll " add an extra incentive" ( yeah baby). Swim suit season isn't getting any farther away. I can do this- I have to do this now before it gets anymore out of control.

Still remembering that promise I made to the fat girl in the mirror in May of 2009- that if she got up off the couch and put down the food and went to the gym and lost all that fat, I would NOT make her lose those pounds ever again. I promised. Every morning she looks back at me and says "you promised" I promised. I will not fail.

    I know PMS weeks are hard for you. I was actually coming on tonight to check on you. I hadn't heard much from you so I wanted to check in. I'm glad your still hanging in there. I know you can do this. You have been such a motivation to me. This road to being healthy is not without pot holes and detours, but it is so much better with a good traveling companion. I know your going to keep your promise.

your choice.

"Be miserable. Or motivate yourself. Whatever has to be done, it's always your choice."- Wayne Dyer.

this is my quote for the day- cause this is where I am right now- I screwed up for a couple of days and was having a pity party , I shook it off and decided to just begin again. Not a big revelation but I used to be so depressed all the tine. Now I have learned to handle defeat and not come completely unraveled.

    This is a good quote. I know how hard it is to overcome depression, so what ever works I'm a fan of. I'm proud of you for staying strong and beginning again. You are so awesome and such an inspiration.

The rest of March.

Sunday, March 21, 2010

Last week was a mixed bag- Down 2.2lbs. for the week, but knowing if I had applied myself I could have reached the 70lb. mark. Good news, I found my camera so I'm posting pics of my monthly motivation and the heart chart, cause I added a couple thus month

But I really need to hit that 70 lb. mark this week and be dowb to 165 by next Saturday to stay on track for my goal. SO gotta buckle down, hit the gym, eat right.... yada yada, I just gotta do it.

That was then this is now , my version.( thanks michcleary:)

Thursday, March 18, 2010

A friend of mine posted a blog today called "That was then this is now" It was great and I need to remember how far I've come today- my body has been holding on to that 1 pound that keeps me from the 70 lb. mark- so frustrating. I have to keep having to remind myself that I been here before - and THAT pound will come off it is just a matter of time.

So here goes.......

Then was 236.4 lbs. now is 167.4 lbs.

Then was a size 22/24 now is a size 12/14- and those are kinda big:)

Then was NO gym time now I average 3x per week and I miss it when I don't go.

Then was fast food for breakfast and usually lunch- large everything, sometimes 2 orders of fries- I was actually ticked off when they eliminated super-size- large wasn't big enough. Now when I am forced to eat fast food, I almost always skip the fries altogether.

Then I loved soda now I love water.

Then I was always hot and sweat very easily, now I am usually cold and sweat only at the gym.

Then I wore granny panties every day, now the "power panties " are overflowing their drawer and Victoria Secret has become my friend.... which leads to LOTS of other fun activities emoticon

Then I hated shopping and cried in the dressing room, now I love shopping and dance in the dressing room.

well, I'm sure there is more but its a start and I'm smiling now so mission accomplished.

    Oh Jules, I'm such a silly girl....I cried this morning reading this. I guess just because I don't think about how far I've come on a day to day basis anymore and this brought a lot of that out. I'm so happy for you, I'm so proud of you, and I'm proud to count you among my friends.

    This is a great way to look at things. I need to keep this in mind when I'm feeling like I'll never get below 200. You have been a great inspiration to me. You will be past that 70 pound mark in no time. Keep up the great work.

    Hey there... great post right? I've gone from a 24 to 16's being loose. I forgot about the change in panty size.

Fun activites are calorie burners too right??? emoticon

Let's keep moving forward. One day we'll get that elusive 70lb lost icon.

I am loving March......

Tuesday, March 16, 2010

So time for a weekly update, So far this month I have lost 6 lbs. And I notice that I can really feel the last couple pounds. Lately I can tell as soon a s I get up if I dropped weight, I know it sounds crazy- but I swear it's true. The only things I am disappointed in is the amount of time I have not been spending at the gym lately, and I have a million reasons ( excuses ) why. Work schedule fluctuates, busy with the kids.... blah blah blah. I need to stop making excuses and get my butt there, I always feel better when I do. But overall pretty proud of myself this month and I am seriously hoping to hit the 70lb. lost mark tomorrow. I'd take a picture of the scale but my camera is still MIA:(.

You're going to beat me to 70 but now I will have a goal to catch up to you. I think I'm stuck forever at 65lbs. :(

Have a great rest of the week. emoticon
