I have more free time but my Sparkpeople motivation is missing!

Monday, April 22, 2013

Happy spring everyone. It has been a while since I posted.

I got all of my blood work results back - I don't have lyme disease. My iron is at 20 and it should be 40 or above? Also I have low Vit D. I have been taking iron and Vit D for the past 2 weeks. The Dr told me the Vit D would give me more energy in a few weeks. I don't know if I have more energy, but I do feel happier. Even in the mornings when I wake up, it is easier to get out of bed. Now I even smile in the morning instead of being grumpy! I just need to KEEP taking the supplements! That is the toughest part for me!


I still watch what I eat. I try to walk and get in extra exercise when I can. Tax season is over, and I have more free time on the weeknights and weekends. I ran a 5K 2 weeks ago & I have another one this Saturday. I went to a 1 mile benefit walk this past weekend. However... something is missing. I don't have the urge to come on Spark people too often anymore. I do love reading the progress of other people. I miss the challenges - for some reason, I have really been slacking on posting on them - sorry teams. Even though I am not losing weight, I am not gaining weight either.

Even though I can fit into size Large and some Medium shirts now, I still hate my body. Since I lost so much weight, the body I have under my clothes is not attractive to me at all. Everyone says I look great -but they don't see the stretch marks and extra skin. I really should go to the gym and work out differently to maybe try to change my body. But I don't have the extra money to spend for a gym membership. Plus, I don't have the motivation to make myself work out that much. It is frustrating - I have come in so far and changed so much in my life.

I am happy in most of my life now - which is a change from the past years. I wasn't miserable before (except with how much I weighed). But now I feel more like myself. Somehow I have changed so much for the better and I love it. However, somehow I have been stuck. I can't push myself harder right now to lose more weight. I am so close to my goal, but I just can't force myself to get there. Maybe I am happy so I am distracted? I am not eating too bad though. I still make great, healthy choices when I am eating most of the time. I do have french fries sometimes, but I limit how often I have them. I want to start Zumba again next week since I won't be working when they have class! I just don't know how to push myself harder. Part of me doesn't want to push harder because I might give up altogether. I am happy on the path I am on until I look at body in the mirror. I wish I knew what to do!

I could starve myself for a week and get to 155- but how is that worth it to myself? I would just gain the weight back the next week and that wouldn't be right. I don't want to cheat the system just to say I reached my goal weight for a day!

Oh well! I need to sit down and make some time for myself. Maybe sitting down and thinking out some different goals will change my outlook again on my weight loss.

Hopefully everyone has a great week! Keep pushing towards all of your goals. I am still trying to reach my goals, it is just tough for me to reach my weight loss goal right now!

    Hey, not gaining is important too, don't forget that! Sorry your motivation is lacking. I've been a pound or 2 away from my goal for a while now, just can't seem to get there. Sometimes, I think I'm scared, because once I get to my goal, now what?

For a while I was scared that I would gain the weight back, but I eat so well now that when I do eat crappy I get really sick, so I'm over that.

I stopped strength training in August and still haven't started back up.... I will if you will, lol

    Staying motivated is sooo hard. I am in a similar place as you. My workouts are suffering. Maybe you need to find a ST video to do at home? That will help change your body! I know you are strong willed and you will get your drive back! Just keep pushing!

    It sounds like you are not feeling your best don't give up. Keep logging your food and working out as much as you can.. Make note of when you don't feel your best. I found I'm dairy and gluten intolerant and think it would have been the last thing they would have checked if it hadn't been for my spark logs. Be kind to yourself and the changes you have made to your body. You are young give you skin some time to adjust to the changes. Enjoy where you are at and how far you have come. Just don't give up and go back. emoticon

    Kim, you have some great things going for you. You're weight is stabalized, you're still running, you acknowledge how your life has improved, and you talk about feeling happier. emoticon
I truly believe you need to consider being content with where you are currently and not stress about those last few pounds. Fighting with those few pounds can very likely be what breaks you and sees you loosing the control you have now. It's from some of my personal experiences that I can say this. I've often been after a number and lost sight of all the good I had gained and let that number haunt me to the point of failure and undoing all the good with a gain and then some. This time around I am determined not to let this happen. When I reach that "goal" this time it's not the final goal Ihave in mind but it's an attainable one I will be okay with stabalizing. If I loose more after that over time great, if not I will be happy with all the non scale victories I've experienced and the number I arrive at.
Kim, you can sort this out. You're being wise considering taking some time to reflect. You'll make the right choices for you.

    "Motivation" seems to ebb and flow for most of us. You're doing fine...eating well, following dr's orders, doing exercise when you can. The rest will come as you feel better and ready to move forward again. Give yourself some time to adjust to where you are. Maybe it is a good time to learn a bit about maintenance before you shoot ahead again. Regardless, treat yourself kindly and well and it fill fall into place! Hugs!!

    Your not alone in that department. Hating your body will only back fire, when I see my stretch marks I remind myself that I would rather have those than not because they would be full of fat again. Please try a little kindness toward yourself, you have come a LONG way!!!! emoticon emoticon

    I don't have any answers or solutions for you, unfortunately. It is pretty common for people to become complacent with their weight-loss when they get close to goal, though. A little thought worms in that "Well, I've already done so much... this last little bit doesn't really seem worth the extra work right now." I'm not saying that is exactly the idea you have now, just that it's something I've seen a lot of people deal with.

Perhaps you should stop trying to lose right now, and focus on maintenance for a few weeks? Maybe explore the fitness DVDs at the library or online, to see if you can shake up your routine without an expensive gym membership? Your workout might just be getting a bit stale, which then becomes kind of boring...

Also - if you ever find a miracle cure for the loose skin, please let me know! I hate it as well, and I'm nowhere near my final goal. The way I look in clothes is nothing like how I look when I'm naked, just due to the stupid loose skin. It supposedly tightens up naturally if you drink lots of water, but it takes a long time.

Happy April! I love this weather - Different goals this month & outside pics included!

Tuesday, April 02, 2013

Thank you to everyone who has supported me! I really appreciate it. Every compliment and piece of advice and support really helps me going forward! Thank you!

Normally every month I post my goals for the month. I have been very busy with work and my personal life. Instead of posting my normal goals, I just want to post about what I would like to accomplish this month and what I have planned.

I have two 5K races. One is 4/7 and the other is 4/27. Since I have been on the antibiotics, I have not been exercising because I still don't feel 100%. I am doing yoga tonight after work. I definitely don't feel ready for my race on Sunday - I want to ask my Dr if I should do it or not. Maybe I will walk most of it if I don't feel well. I still want to go even if I can't run.

Once tax season is over, I will have time to go to Zumba again. I miss going! The weather is nicer, so I want to be outside. I just have to definitely make sure I check for ticks right away. I am still waiting for my test results.

Instead of having a weight loss deadline this month, I am getting rid of it for now. Instead of feeling disappointed, I want to focus on other things I KNOW I can do. I do want to reach 155, but I know it won't be this month. I need to work up to exercising more often. I will get there, I just know it will not be this month.

This month I want to accomplish:
-Keep tracking my fitness and food
-More craft projects.
-Keep moving forward - happiness is very important!
-Plan more girls-day-out events if I can.
-Pay off more bills
-Be outside and exercise as much as I can
-Not worry about my weight loss goal. I still want to track, but I got rid of my deadline

I did an Easter pot project which turned out pretty cute. When I get more free time, I want to make more things. I miss doing that!

Hopefully everyone has a fantastic April - actually hopefully you have a great week & a great day! Whenever I get sick, I am thankful for every day I have where I don't feel sick. Since I am feeling a bit better, I am trying to be thankful the best I can! There is a lot going on in everyone's lives, and every bit helps! Don't give up on your goals - just modify them. I am not giving up on my weight loss. I am just changing it to help me get through it!

    It looks beautiful out! As far as your goals, that is kind of what I am doing too. I am modifying the small things in order to reach long term success. This month I have two big nutrition goals. 1 is to cut out fried foods, and the other is to cut out soda. I have almost given into temptation a few times, but so far so good. I have also made a goal of working out 3x per week. I think these kinds of thinks help rather than focusing solely on weight. Good luck!

Walk in the park = tick bite & symptoms after. Yuck!

Monday, March 25, 2013

I had a pretty good weekend. The weather was sunny & not too bad on Saturday. I went to the park after work and walked around for 2 hours. Unfortunately, the next day I found a tick on the back of my neck. I did a quick check after the park, but apparently I missed one. Ugh! It really hurt when it was taken out. A few hours after taking it out, I started getting really tired and got an awful headache. I had a 99 fever - which isn't too bad... but I did have the chills for 2 hours before bed. Today I am feeling pretty gross too. My head hurts, I am so tired and moving sooo slowly at work. I keep getting random stomach cramps. It isn't fun.. The actual area where the bite is sore too. It randomly aches a bit. Ick!

I called the Doctor's office to see if I should come in. The Dr told me I should come in ASAP since I am having symptoms right away. I have to take a long lunch tomorrow to go to the Drs. Hopefully it isn't anything too serious. It was a little tick (which I heard is the worst kind to have on you). Hopefully the symptoms go away soon - it is so busy at work and I don't want to be sick like this!

Has anyone been bitten with symptoms like this? I have had about 5 other tick bites at least in the past. I never had this type of feeling after getting them off of me!

Hopefully everyone is feeling better compared to how stinky I am feeling! I am missing yoga tomorrow night because I know I won't be up to it. I am trying to stay positive, but I just feel so yuck!

Adventure Weekend: Ice Skating & Rock Climbing Pictures included

Monday, March 18, 2013

I have been super busy with tax season. It is tough having just one full day off a week. One month left until it is over! The extra money is nice, but I still feel like I don't have enough time to relax sometimes!

The weather was nice last weekend but then it snowed over the weekend a little bit & it is cold again! I haven't been home much to use the treadmill & I don't really want to run outside when it is so chilly! I know - excuses!

Even though I haven't ran too much besides the 5K, I am still trying to fit in exercise. I went ice skating Saturday night. It was fun even though I was scared at first! I haven't been ice skating since I was in 2nd grade? I stuck to the wall at first, but then I did better as I went! I didn't fall down either, woohoo! =)

Yesterday I went rock climbing! My two friends are members in a gym near them, and they asked if I wanted to go. At first I was thinking NO WAY! Then I was thinking.. wait why not? It would be something new to try & great exercise. I was scared at first, but I made it to the top two times. Then I tried some climbing on a different type of wall with no harness. It was scary, but I am glad I did it! Now I am feeling sore in my shoulders, forearms, and fingers! I am feeling muscles I never knew I had before!

Tuesday I have yoga again - yay. I missed last week because my legs were too sore from the 5K. I signed up for another 5K 4/27. So I have one 4/7 and 4/27! I have been wearing my new running shoes around the house, but I need to actually break them in before I run in them!

I hope everyone is doing well - sorry for slacking so much on here. I miss it! Thank you to everyone who has supported me! I still did not reach my weight loss goal yet, but I am trying to track the best I can right now!

I think the last time I was ice skating I was 7 mo preg with my youngest. She is almost 50 now. I would rather roller skate due to weak ankles. Rock climbing.....I don't think so, but U go girl. I consider myself blessed I can still walk and bike. I might try roller skating though.

    Rock climbing looks like so much fun. How long have you been doing it? Is it something you can do when you're heavier? I've always been kind of afraid to give it a try.

5K results - new PR!

Sunday, March 10, 2013

I just got the website for my 5k results.

I got a new PR! 34:34 woohoo

First race 37:37
Second Race: 36:36
Third Race: 36:04
St Pattys race: 34:34 new PR!

Maybe I will get 33:33 next race! I have one scheduled for April 7th! I can't wait to break in my new running shoes and go to the next race!

Even though my legs are a bit sore, I went to the park this afternoon to walk around because it was so nice outside!

    There is no doubt in my mind that you would break the 30 minute barrier before long just by training regularly. You are getting in better and better shape!
