So tired today.

Wednesday, September 30, 2009

Pulled a double shift at work and then hit the gym, I am so tired I can barely move, and I have miles to go before I sleep. I really need to work on getting more sleep. Not enough hours in the day, and not enough mom to go around. However on the plus side My beautiful son Shawn, has autism and has a really hard time in school, but he got a 100% on his first spelling test. So proud, he worked so hard. LOVE THAT BOY!!!!!!

    Yep, sleeps important, but hard to get when you have too many things to do! Tell your son congratulations for me, I know how hard he must have worked to get that 100%. Give him an extra special hug from your spark "family".

WE ALL ROCK!!!

Went to the gym with my hubby

Tuesday, September 29, 2009

Well, I made it to the gym today and my husband went with me. Since today is a Tushy tuesday (I do the stair climber every Tues. and Thurs. - hence the Tushy Tues. and Tushy thursday)II added the stair climber to my usual workout, I hate the stair climber it kicks my butt every time. But I did it and since I finished before my husband and he was on the exercise bike I hopped on that too and did another 15 mins. on that for another 150 cals. So even though I missed it yesterday I got back on the horse (or bike) full force today. It felt great to be back!!!!

    Way to go, girl! Sometimes we need the break, but that makes it harder to get back in the groove the next time. I'm glad that your husband is joining you! It's more fun when someone you care about is doing it with you, isn't it?

I was a slacker today.

Monday, September 28, 2009

Did not go to the gym today and now I feel like a total slacker. It was an emotional kind of day. the kind of day when I could have really used the gym, and instead overate just a little (proud of myself for not totally pigging out). Now I have to make homemade mashed potatoes for the rest of my family and somehow manage not to eat them. I love mashed potatoes so this is truly a test of my resolve. I guess this is my penance for skipping the gym:(

    I didn't go to the gym Monday either...and it felt great to be back this morning. well, mostly. For me, it's not the feeling like a slacker so much as the fact that my mood is so much better if I get my exercise in -- must be those endorphins. I won't discuss how the food got out of hand yesterday as well. But today is today, and it's going better. Hope today is working out well for you!

    Ehhh....don't beat yourself up too much. You've done such a great job and I am a firm believer that everyone should slack a little sometimes! I practice slacking on a regular basis!!! :)

WE ALL ROCK!!!

Ghosts of weight loss past.

Friday, September 25, 2009

The last couple of days I've been haunted by the ghosts of weight loss past. In 2007 I managed to lose 41 lbs. bringing my weight at the time down to 181 lbs. I was stuck at 181 for about 2 weeks before I just gave up and eventually put those 41 lb.s on and more. Now I'm at 185.8 and I am a little bit worried that the same thing will happen when I hit 181 again. That number has been dancing around my sub-conscience for the last couple of days. I tell myself it is just a number and I can move right past it, but a little nagging voice still says "it's 181 , remember what happened last time". I wish that voice would just shut up.

    That 181 was just a plateau, and just a number. Try to find something new to motivate you. OR create a mini goal to jump right past the 181 so that you never even read THAT number on the scale. Then, when you pass it, maybe you will have renewed motivation for the next big goal! Julie, you are so close! And you NAILED your last goal WAY ahead of time. This is not last time! This time you are stronger, and NOTHING can stop you from reaching your goal. Not even a stinking plateau, whatever the numbers read!!

    I am in a similar situation. I am currently 2 lbs under what I weighed last year before I gained it all back. Right I find myself losing momentum because I realize I am just about halfway to goal. It is easy to get complacent when people start complimenting you and telling you how good you look. I keep reminding myself of how hard I worked to get this far and how I don't want to sabotage my efforts. I am happy with my progress so far, but I don't won't to stop. Tomorrow is my birthday (so I am giving myself the day off), but on Sunday I am jumping right back on that horse so that next year I can celebrate being at my goal weight.

    Yeah, I have a similar inner voice. I was in a panic last week as the scale bounced up almost 2 pounds just because I ate two pieces of cake that week. This week I ate one low fat ice cream sundae and the scale went up 2 pounds. Weight fluctuations will happen. We have to realize that a gain of 2 or 3 pounds is not a deal breaker. We can't give up our goals to eat healthy (healthier) and to exercise. Don't listen to the inner voice! You can do it!!!
