took a negative made it into a positive.

Yesterday,after the *itch incident, I had pronised to go to a friends house to help her finish some last minute items for her craft show this weekend. I love my friend Mary Jo She is the best and between talking and crafting the time snuck away so I only had about 45 minutes at the gym before I needed to pick up my son at school. I did a quick 20 on the treadmill and 20 on the elliptical and burned about 320 cals. later that afternoon, my MIL brought all my kids Wendy's. They didn't finish their nuggets and fries, but unfortunately I did:( As soon as I ate it I felt really bad, I'm so close to my goal I feel like I may be sabotaging myself. So I started mopping around, when my husband mentioned that he was too tired to go to the gym, and it hit me if he wasn't going he could watch the kids and I could go back- so I did and treadmilled for 45minutes high resistance, high speed, burned 420 cals. I felt totally in control again and took back the day. This morning I got on the scale and lost a pound. I chose to work it off instead of roll over.

By the way thank you to all my sparkfriends who encourage me to keep going- you help more than you know..

Got called a *itch before 8:30 AM - got to be a record

Monday, September 14, 2009

My husband left my tank on empty so I had to get gas and was late to drop my son off at school. If your kid is tardy you have to sign them in a the office, as I was waiting to be buzzed in another mother pulled up and was going to drop her kids off on the curb and pull away. Her window was rolled up so I gesture toward the office and my watch to let her know she was late, she then rolled her window down and yelled "listen *itch, don't tell me what to do with my kid", I told her how dare you call me that in front of my kid, I was just rying to be helpful. She then pulled away. I had to smile though as I was leaving her daughter was walking into the office the teacher sent her there, they were going to call her mom to the school to sign her in. Still what a way to start the day - Had to really work it off at the gym today.

    Wow! That's sweet. Some people are just miserable people all the way around. At least in sounds like it gave you some extra oomph for the gym!

Didn't eat everthing in the house. (It just felt like I did)

Saturday, September 12, 2009

Hey all. As I mentioned earlier I am PMSing big time this week and after gaining and losing and gaining and losing I lost a net total of .5 lbs this week. I consider even this much a small miracle. On the Plus side- I did work out 5 days this week and even added the stair climber this week. My children and husband are all still alive ( somehow they survived super witch). And I checked my cupboard and I am relieved to report that there is still some food in there. So even though it appeared that I literally ate everything in the house this week- this is not the case:)

    Oh my gosh, I love this post. This is me. Seriously. Great job on leaving some food still intact and not killing off the family. And the weight loss? Definitely a small miracle during TOM. Keep it up girl!

    *lol* Last week (and I probably still have some lingering) I was going through the same mode. My emotions wanted to tear everyone to pieces. It's so frustrating but it's good to see you conquered it!

Did it anyway!!!!!

Wednesday, September 09, 2009

Yesterday was so crappy , did not sleep well. almost came back home after dropping my youngest of at preschool but I DIDN"T. Went to the Y instead and had a completely awesome kick but workout. It was hard but so worth it, for the endorphins alone. Added the stairclimber to my workout this week- thats the one machine I avoided because I didn't think I could handle it. Only 6 minutes but I DID IT. Also lost 1.8 lbs. yesterday as emotional as I was. Thank GOD.

Having a really hard time

Tuesday, September 08, 2009

I am having a really hard time. Since I lost enough weight for my monthly cycles to finally start again my PMDD is back in full force. It's like PMS on steroids. I am so moody , exhausted, and ravenously hungry. Yesterday was awful, I ate everything. Today was a horrible struggle it took literally all my willpower to resist overeating today. And my workout at the gym was pathetic I only burned about 200 calories , I just didn't have it today. I am so afraid of losing it completely and going back to my old lifestyle. I'm trying to stay rational, telling myself that it will be over in about a week but It is still really discouraging. Trying to keep from losing anymore ground. Sometimes being a woman sucks. Hope tomorrow is better. emoticon

    You can do it. I know you can. It's so hard and sometimes people just don't understand that. Together we can do this. You'll make it through just fine. Remember that even if you have one really bad week you'll have 3 to make up for it!!!! emoticon
