Last week and this week.

Sunday, April 11, 2010

Well, I had a crazy week, Kids on spring break and schedule thrown all over the place.

First - great week weight loss wise. I finally hit the 70lb. goal. Ended the week with the 2.2 net loss. Would have been more, but was bad on Friday:( Had some great workouts at the gym this week. Got some really awesome capri jeans that make my legs and butt look great. I so love shopping again.

Second, Next week - I feel really great about it. - My sister joined the Y this week so I have a new workout buddy- awesome. I am gonna nail that 162 lb mark on Saturday- I can just feel it. Planned new 2 days nutrition and I have been doing much better about drinking more water. Weather is warming up and It just makes me feel so happy. Wednesday is an IEP meeting at my sons school- this is always stressful so to counteract this I am gonna post what I eat and workout details here in my blog that day- accountability.

    I'm so proud of you for hitting your 70 pound mark. I know getting back into the routine of things can be a good or bad thing. I'm hoping it is a good thing for both of us. Good idea bloging your food and fitness for accountability. You are definitely making great progress and I'm sure you'll hit your next goal soon. Hope you have a great week.

I would like to thank......

Wednesday, April 07, 2010

Yesterday when I was anticipating finally hitting the 70lb. mark I was thinking about what to blog on this momentous occasion and it hit me - write about the things and people that have helped get you here- so here goes- NOT in any order of importance.

1. Rubbermaid water bottles ( with the chug top) wide enough mouth to add lots of ice-cubes- seals tight to shake up stuff- like slim fast and crystal light.


2. The Youngstown OH Davis branch YMCA- for creating a welcoming environment where anyone can work out-

3. Green and Blacks chocolate- cause if your only gonna eat 1 serving it better be darn good Chocolate- :)

4. Stephenie Meyer- for writing the books that inspired my goals- "Like everything in life, I just had to decide what to do with what I was given.

5. my sparkfriends-Blondedog, tripleemme, Casusk,Michcleary, stupidlamb ..and so many others- you make me laugh and inspire me every day.

6. My son Joe- who constantly reminds me to reach my goals.

7. Smartones- for making the English muffin breakfast sandwiched that start almost everyday for me.

8. My handsome hubby- the reason I'm bringing sexy back:)

9. My Sansa Fuze MP3 player -never freezes- long battery life- key to my survival.

10. my father in law who's weight loss was my original inspiration.

These things and people have made my weight loss a success- Thanks all 70 down 30 more to go...... now where is that water bottle??????

    I've been gone all day today so when I read that you had met your goal I actually cheered for you. My kids looked at me funny, but as soon as they saw I was on SP they just nodded and walked on. I'm so excited for you! Congratulations! You are such an inspiration!

A little red tank top= alot of happiness.

Thursday, April 01, 2010

Today I did something I never though I would again. I wore a liitle red tank top- not under my shirt, but as my shirt. And my hubby said I looked "hot", and you know what?, I felt hot, I felt confident, I felt pretty. So today goes down in the history of me as the day I was able to wear a tank top and feel good about it.

and that is pretty darn great.

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.

    Wishing you all the best this week! I expect a report to let me know how you are doing. I'll check back and hold you accountable for that promise!
