Till the 21st

Wednesday, May 09, 2012

I drove by a gym yesterday and decided to walk in and check it out. In return they gave me a free pass from the 7th till the 21st of this month (2 wks)! I didn't use it yesterday because not only did I have a baby with a fever but I was also recovering from one from the day before. So, I went there today instead.

It was a bit hard since my whole body still feels as if it's still in recovery from something like the flu. I haven't been to the gym in years now, about 3. I totally miss it. This one doesn't have the little room for women only so reading is out of the question for the most part unless it is just for fun. I did work the elliptical for 30 mins. My main issue was that I was feeling too warm and sick to my stomach and my feet were going numb (an issue I always have on the machine after so long though the more I use it the longer it takes for the numbness to come). I'm going to try to get to the gym everyday though some days may be harder than others due to hubby needing the van and all. Hopefully I can get in at least an hour a day though!

One Thing After Another

Tuesday, May 01, 2012

I feel like I've been hit by one thing right after the other.

First my ankle, then my knee, then my migraines and now my IBS issues seem to look more and more like Gall Bladder issues.

I'm always inspired and always have my health on the front burner but I lose momentum quickly it seems of lately.

I always have a new plan which seems to never get off the ground or if it does, it doesn't stay up in the air for long.

I have two scales that seem to be completely off from each other and it is driving me a bit bonkers because I don't know which to trust...I'm thinking I might just start trusting my jeans again, they never lie.

Most of April was a stand still with me being at the same weight for about 3 weeks of the month. This May I'm hoping to see some changes. I would love to get out of the 230's for one and back into the 220's. My original goal for June 1st was to hit 225 so I'm a bit off but I think it can be done with a lot of work.

Now only to get motivated and stay away from illness and injury.

    Hi I think I get where you're coming from. I have bad knees (birth defect). I had ankle surgery a few years ago and one of the screws broke. I had elbow surgery last year and I'm still working to regain the strength in that arm. I also had my gallbladder removed 2.5 years ago and I still have some issues post surgery. Given my track record I question whether I should ever leave the house, lol. Sometimes it seems like the universe is just piling it on and it makes it hard to dig up the motivation to keep going. Just keep moving forward. Like 13610511 and GLAMOURGIRL-9 said take it slow. Don't put too much pressure on yourself and experiment until you find something that works for you. I put on quite a bit of weight after my health problems. I just started trying to do something about it. Cardio was killing my ankle so I've switched to more low impact or no impact workouts that are easy on my battered joints. Also Seargentmajor got me into resistance band training which is really helping me build strength. I would say pick one scale or go with the jeans method. Inches lost is probably a better indicator of how you're doing than pounds lost anyway. emoticon

    Anything body related can be discouraging. If your finiding yourself losing momentum because of health issues.maybe lower the bar so you wont feel sdissappointed and like your not achieving? Less is more sometimes..................

Hang tight!!!!!

    It is tough when there is injury. I have issues with my hip. I went to physical therapy and that helped build up the muscle, and I was doing pretty good for awhile, but every so often, I do something that puts me back in pain mode, which I have been in for the last few days. It is frustrating, when you can't depend on a body part!

So, I guess it just takes longer when dealing with illness and injury but we still need to be moving forward even if it is baby steps. Baby steps are still steps.

New Starting Point.

Monday, March 19, 2012

So I started last June at 256.8 or so and as of today I am down to 240lbs. This year my high has been 246 so I have lost 6lbs in almost 3 whole months. Not my norm but I can honestly admit that I'm not trying very hard. I can't afford a gym so there is that that I am lacking and on top of that I have not been dieting (last few days prove that!). I did start a food journal at the start of last week and boy does it show things going poorly. 3 parties with lasagna and cake and ice cream and pizza and then all my normal bad snacking and eating habits. The only workout that I've gotten was shopping for more food and a bit of dancing.

I'm setting up a new goal for this week:

64oz of Water
No Soda
No Eating Out
Work Out 5 Days a Week
Drop 2lbs (238lbs)

If I could drop 2lbs a week I can reach my goal of 220 by June!

What are y'all goals?

    Hey Kat... I know exactly how you feel. All of it... the losing, the gaining, the starting over... again. :) I started out last week all gung-ho and ready to rock some loss... and I did. I lost 6 lbs, but then over the weekend I ate high fat, high sodium, and high calorie and 5.5 of that 6 was back... in just 2 short days! OK... so we all know it's fluids, still, it makes for a depressing start to the new week.

Anyhow, my goal for the next 8 weeks is to lose 5% of my weight... which is about 12 lbs, which will put me at about 224. Yes, my start weight was the 236.5 from Saturday morning... not the 242 from this morning. Ugh... I hope that goes away pretty quickly.

With consistency and diligence we can do this!

I Have to say that yesterday was a better food day but today not so much. I will have to redo my plan for this week so here goes.

1. 64 oz of water daily

2. No snacking

3. No seconds

Today was just a mixture of all of the above. I couldn't stop drinking (water) I couldn't stop snacking (on anything including the 2 ho-ho's I ate and the massive amount of liverwurst) and I have another bowl of soup though I'm so stuffed that I could only take a bite or two and it's just sitting. I have no clue what is up but I just felt so hungry none stop. Hopefully the rest of the week goes by way better...or quicker!... whichever. :P

Happy New Year!

Monday, January 02, 2012

Yes, I didn't blog yesterday because I wasn't even going to bother to set myself up for failure. I had planned on a New Years meal and I was going to eat it. I admit though, I didn't go over board. No pie was made nor biscuits. Just mashed potatoes, stuffing and turkey. Yes dh insisted that I cook turkey for New Years (ack!).

Will openly admit to the fact that I did try a fried twinky which was nasty!!! And, I did have some candy and a soda but other than that, yep, it was pretty decent.

Wait, there was the handful of chips for movie time...and sour cream with them. *sigh* LOL

Today will be a better day with 64 oz of water going down the tube.

Hope you all got off on the right foot this year!
