Day Two

Monday, November 14, 2011

Yesterday I surprised myself and did well. Actually, I was just a little under cals (1155) but I figured I miscalc'd or forgot something so that put me over 1200 anyway.

This morning, weighed 155. No headache. Felt a bit dry eyed though. I realized my Activias are expiring soon, so there are my breakfasts until they are gone. We had roasted chicken last night and there is still a lot left on that, so leftovers until it's gone. Lunch will likely be soup or a salad.

Here I am again. :\ Ok, I'm here. That's good. First step. I love to see progress so I'm going to lay it all out, good bad ugly. In several weeks, I will be able to look back and say to myself "Good job! Look how far you've come!"

With that: Today, 156.5 #'s. Splitting headache. I will go measure myself now.... *runs off*

*comes back*

Calf: 14.25"
Thigh: 23.5"
Hips: 40.5"
Waist: 37"
Chest: 41"
Arm: 13"

So there we have it. Starting point.

Back to Basics

Thursday, January 20, 2011

It's funny how this all works.

I've been doing WW's since the last Sunday of November. For the most part I have been on program. As of today, I've lost a total of 3.5 pounds. WTF! (150, now 146.5) Ok ok. I know the scale lies. I *know* I'm retaining water. I *know* I've swapped a lot of fat for muscle. But seriously?? 3.5 stinking pounds??

I know the saying "It's hard to be fat. It's hard to lose weight. Choose your hard." And I'll choose the lose weight Hard. But really. Two months and I've hardly moved.

So Back to Basics. I have been getting in all my good foods. I need to cut out the not good foods. The stuff I wouldn't be doing as someone 125#s. That means getting back to removing the whiskey (yes, I love my nightcap!!) and removing the muffins/chips/cupcakes. The crazy thing is I'm not chowing down on them. They just sneak in there bit by bit everyday. I'm going to try to stop making excuses. The temptations are strong (gawd, this house is filled with junk food! I have to learn to just walk on by!!)

Exercise: I don't think I need to change anything. I'm doing the C25K three times a week. Going on mountain hikes nearly every day, averaging about 1 1/2 - 2 hours at a shot. I do need to keep up with yoga daily (something I sometimes just don't do). I need it to keep from getting injured from the hiking/running.

That's all for now. I've had my yoga, healthy breakfast and vitamins this morning. Now it's time to get to work.

    I've been in the same place many times; I think a lot of us have. Recognizing the situation will start to bring success.
Your plan will add to it. Soon you'll be moving in the right direction.
One thing I've found helpful as a one-month newbie is to post daily. It keeps me honest, lets me review and renew my determination and to stop doing the wrong things before they become a habit. It lays it all out there for people to see, and brings tremendous support to keep going, even if my progress is slower than I want. I don't lie about anything in my posts. It's the real me, something not many people in my life get to know.
I am sure you will soon see positive change.
Hugs and prayers,
Deb emoticon emoticon

Sabotage : Efforts #1 & #2

Wednesday, January 12, 2011

I'm numbering these because I know there are more to come. And they will probably be with more force as the numbers increase.

This morning, while I was doing my yoga DH comes in and starts off with "I know I always interrupt your sessions, but I have a question..." which A. could have waited... and B. could have been looked up by him. So that's the first one of the day.

Next, I finish then go to put on my running shoes. Yay! Day three of Week one! I'm so excited! DH sees me putting on my shoes and says "Oh. You're going running. *flat* I guess that means you won't go hiking with me today *flat* You never go hiking with me after you run. I guess I'll just have to go without you." *pout/guilt* OMFG. It just blows me away. I just said "Well, I guess that's too bad then." Yes. This is day three (meaning I've gone all of TWO times so far).

  Maybe it's time to tell DH to do the C25K with you! ;-)

    I hear you. I have relatives who have to sabotage any success I have with backhanded compliments -- "you look more like a normal person now" -- and at some point, depending on whom you're dealing with, you have to protect yourself.
I am in the middle of some psychotherapy, and after a disastrous party with my inlaws, I talked with my therapist about it and I've decided to take a six-month break from family events (the only exceptions would be a wedding or funeral).
Husbands are tougher to deal with. Mine doesn't know how much the baby steps mean to me, and it takes a loss of about 70 pounds before he really acknowledges my work. I don't want to offer advice, but it's bound to come to a head, so talking about it is a good thing. For some reason, I've been married almost 32 years to this man. This week, I finally gave him a list of my needs (again, part of my therapy). He hasn't reacted yet, but I extended the same offer to him to give me his own list. I'm hoping we can get some things resolved ourselves, and then do some marriage counselling. It's never too early or too late to do this, unless one person is determined not to agree. Then the other person must take care of themselves -- with therapy or whatever it takes.
Because people tend to wind up in an angry confrontation, a third party is very useful, I've found.
I wish you the best in dealing with this. At least you can express yourself here. emoticon emoticon
Hugs, peace and blessings,

C25K: Week One, Day Two

Monday, January 10, 2011

Wow. I was feeling really lousy (cramps) this morning so pushed through my yoga and thought "I'd better get the running done right away this morning." So off I went and got that done too. I still feel really crappy but I'm glad I was able to get Day Two completed.

Right now I'm treadmilling it and trying to think of a safe, flat place to run outside. I think I've thought of a place. It's a 1 1/2 mile loop hike - so I guess I'd be going twice around. I'm not sure if it will work bringing a dog with me. So, I'll treadmill it for Day 3 and then try it with Leo two days later. It's all forest trails, crosses a creek twice. I am pretty sure there are others who run the same place in the mornings. We'll see how it works out.

If that place doesn't work out, I have others I can turn to, although they'll be much more rocky/mountainous.
