Well Its only Saturday, but I snuck into the bathroom this morning and weighted in a couple days early. I just wanted to see where I was at and if what I did this last week was a good thing.
I LOST 2.4lbs!
Yep, I want to do a cartwheel!
This week wasn't perfect.
I did my 30 day shred dvd one day. I about died! LOL My legs were so sore. Last time I was working out doing Yoga, I had a similar experience. Anyone have any idea what I can do to prevent my legs getting so stiff after workouts? I found myself walking like a penguin even 3 days after the workout. hmm. I need to research that. I wonder if I need to stretch differently/more/something.
Even though I only worked out once, I did do 50 jumping jacks every time I did a shower. haha That is awesome! I feel like I'm about to die and then jump into the shower. I like to watch my body in the mirror and imagine what its GOING to look like.
I ate much better than I have been. Now, I did go to Applebees and had a few drinks and then we ended up at Red Lobster one night. I had never been there before. LOL YUM! I teased my husband and asked him why he had been holding this place back from me! If I wasn't being more mindful of myself I would have prob ate myself silly! I had a few shrimp, a roll, a salad, and a billion glasses of water! LOL But I looked on Pintrest for healthy lunches. I found this AMAZING salad idea and even got my hubby loving them too!
TADA this was Monday's lunch for hubby and I! Mason Jar salads! They are sooo good! I loved them! So did hubby!
So for the last week, I have been eating tons of fruits and veggies. I have ate special K cereal every morning for breakfast. Its my favorite. I actually like it! LOL And then I have a snack of an orange or some celery and a bit of peanut butter or applesauce. And I've been having either soup or salad for lunch. I totally enjoyed it this week!
I also have started making my own bread. I don't eat much bread as it is, but my hubby eats lots of it because he likes sandwiches for lunch. But I got a bread maker for Christmas and since we haven't bought a loaf of bread since. The more I think about it, homemade bread has to be so much better for you. You know everything that goes into it.
Here is a loaf of white bread I made. This next week I want to learn how to make some whole wheat bread.
I am really happy with the progress that I've gotten so far.
I've not given up on my diet coke but I've really scaled that down. And I have been drinking more water.
I'm really starting to feel the momentum. I CAN and I WILL do this!
Thanks for letting me vent!

Well Iím back. Iím trying to get myself in a better place, again. This last year didnít go as planned. What a mess!
Iíve been MIA from SP and taking care of myself for a few months now. So much has happened. Iíve been dealing with the stress of stupid family Facebook drama, losing my financial aid and dropping out of college, the stress of year end accounting fun in my office, and the fun of working with people that I quote, ďwish we were back in high schoolĒ (yeah.. seriously a girl told me that LOL).
Iíve let my battle with depression control me for several months. I started eating my feelings. Iíve officially gained all the weight that I have lost over the last couple years. I just let all the stress things I canít control consume me. As I look back at it all itís sickening the sad lady I have become. I canít let the stupidity of others and things I cannot change get to me.
I WILL change the way I live my life!
I WILL not let depression control me!
I WILL learn to eat healthy!
I WILL get my butt out of bed and exercise!
The next couple days I will be making a plan to get me back to a BETTER me!
I am going to: buy a work out DVD, go grocery shopping for fruits & veggies, I will make a game plan!
I WILL succeed!
2013 will be MY year!

SO I have worked faithfully at working on the plan my health lady started for me. I lost a wopping 2 pounds in two weeks. LOL Not what I wanted.. BUT Guess who bought two pairs of size 14 pants yesterday! ME!! Yeah, so I didn't loose much but apparenly I lost some inches. I didn't measure myself like a dummy so I don't know where I started.
I call this summer pretty sucessful. I lost about 5 pounds. And I started at a size 18 in March/April and now Im in a 14. My goal is to get down to a 12 by the end of December and maybe loose so more weight. 10 pounds is my goal.
I'm starting to realize that it is going to take time to get where I want. I think that inside I really thought that all these crazy things I've tried over the last few months would just magically make me perfect. Its going to take effort, disapline, and time to get me where I want to go. I need to take things one day at a time. Then all the good days will add up to a good change.
I'm starting to get bored with my food choices and this week I am going to meet with A (the health helper lady) and see if I can work my food into something better with some different choices.
The last few week has been really emotional for me. I've had a lot of drama that I was unaware of arise from random girlfriends in my husbands circle. I stomped that crap out.
Then, I talked to the hubby over a long dinner and he started telling me how he felt about some stuff. He said that I was letting myself go. He said in the last year or so he has watched me seem to loose faith in myself. He said he watched me slowly stop taking care of myself, our home, and loose interest in life. He said it made him so sad watching me buy those stupid Via shakes and then even paying my health lady for help when last year I was doing it all on my own. I didn't need any help then and he doesnt understand why I think I need help now.
Ah.. It kind of hit me. Why do I need help? I have learned so much about health, nutrition, and fitness from SP and from reading and research why do I need help? I really don't. I'm lazy. But I'm starting to realize that I can not be like this. I need to change and not just one area. I need to make some changes as a whole. I need to take better care of ME, I need to start getting off the computer in the evenings and work on our home. I need to start doing my own thing and make life work for me.
But thats it.. LOL There is my vent for the weekend.
