Back to work!!

Monday, February 18, 2008

Well I'm back. It's been almost a year since I hit my half way point and now I'm back up to only about a 1/4 of the way to my original goal. So, it's back to the drawing board and going for this healthy living thing again that made me feel so wonderful about myself.
I'm still struggling with the motivation and the eating right but hopefully with some help from my friends I can get back into the swing of things.
Now that the sun is shining and spring is coming out I am finding I want to get out and move more. I have started playing football and softball season will be upon us before no time. I am still going to the gym, although not as much as I should.
So, here is my baby step log. My goal is to make it to the gym at least 4 times a week on top of my football practices. During lunches I will get out and do something instead of sit in my office and eat lunch. Being active felt so good and losing weight was phenomenal. It's time to feel that way again!!


Half-Way there

Thursday, April 19, 2007

A couple weeks ago I started struggling. Struggling to lose another lb. Well, it suddenly dawned on me that I am comfortable where I am right now and I think that was part of the problem. Along with that realization came the fact that I still have A LOT to lose. In fact, I wasn't even half way to my goal. So, last Monday I took it up a notch and got right back into it. Adding some more exercise and watching what I ate even more closely. It paid off.
This week at my weigh in I lost 6lbs. That IS a lot for one week and I'm hoping not to have another one like it because that isn't exactly healthy, but BOY!! What a rush!! And then it struck me from out of the blue, that makes 33.5 lbs. That makes it halfway to my goal. I am half way to the weight I want to be at. I'm so extremely excited about that and everyone knows it. Well, the whole office does anyway.
Just wanted to share. Being halfway there means I have won the first half of the battle. The good thing about that is, I'm not even tired yet. Not remotely getting bored with this lifestyle that I have taken on. Woohoo!!

First step back

Thursday, March 15, 2007

Going into week nine I gained a lb. Okay, I can deal with that. It's hard to see that happen but I'm dealing okay. I'm still motivated and not getting down on myself. I'm getting down on that rotten lib that jumped back on my body...somewhere. I say somewhere because I haven't a clue where it is hiding. My clothes are still getting looser by the day, my second chin is still receding and I still feel great. Even my eyes are still looking bigger because of the eye fat going away.
So, this is where I take a step back, reaccess and then leap forward again. I did that. I took a step back and checked out what I was doing and guess what I found out?? I'm doing NOTHING wrong! I am still exercising to beat the bad, my food intake is still going very well and that's all there is to it. I am still beating this body into shape and changing my lifestyle for the better so, I am going to keep doing what I'm doing and perhaps next week the scale will say something different. If it doesn't, well my body is so that's all that matters.


A Little Less of Me

Saturday, February 03, 2007

Yesterday I had my weigh in. I think the abuse I took from the elliptical machine really helped me out because in the last week I lost 5 whole lbs. 5!!! I am still a bit in shock but I am feeling great. And I also lost 3.5 inches too. 2 of which came from my waist. It's amazing how great I feel. I was fully prepared to walk away with having lost nothing and still feel good about myself because this diet is the best thing I have done for myself in a VERY long time. I have more energy, I'm not as tired as I use to be and I feel pretty darn proud of myself. I've found I am taking more time to get ready in the morning, clean my house, cook breakfast, and do all of those things that I never really felt I had the energy for. This is such an amazing improvement and if I don't lose another ounce I am happy I made this lifestyle change. Because I feel PHENOMINAL!!!

Elliptical Machine = Butt Kicker

Thursday, February 01, 2007

I had never tried an elliptical machine before. I'd heard about them, I'd seen them, but had never really tried them. Last night I did. And last night, I got my butt kicked HARD by one. I didn't even make it 10 minutes on that thing. By 5 minutes I was drenched through my t-shirt and I could barely see through the rainlike droplets of sweat coming down my face. It was like a flash flood from my body. It was AMAZING!! I was huffing and puffing and that machine blew me down. I made it to 7 1/2 minutes or 1000 steps. I prefer to look at the steps because it just seems more impressive. I've found my love/hate relationship for this new lifestyle of mine.
Elliptical machines ROCK!! And they kick my butt, but that's exactly what I need to have happen. I can't wait to get on it again tonight.
