Another day to get this right

Wednesday, December 31, 2008

9:19 am
Well, I didn't do too well last night - I had too many (homemade) nachos - at least it was fresh salsa! I know I over did it with the cheese and the chips which has lead to the 1 lb gain today - and that time.

I HAVE done something right already today. I got my cup full of ice before I went to bed and had about 8 oz of water while I was getting ready for work! If I can at least keep this up on work days, it will help.

Not sure what the plan will be for tonight with hubby. I bet anything we'll end up with the neighbors. I'm waiting for hubby to ask - "any new year's resolutions?". I can't tell him that one is to lose weight or he'll hound me - he doesn't mean to, he's just trying to help. But the support doesn't really help when it comes from someone who can eat anything he wants and doesn't understand that it's hard to lose weight.

Sparkers - you are my support and I thank you for it.

    Thank you for all you words of support and great ideas.

Even though my goal is to lose weight - I know that it has to be done by moving more. I like to eat (and so does hubby) - so the biggest thing is to get moving. I know that slow and steady wins the race.

I think it is a great idea to focus on the moving and the portion control eating - then the weight will come off.

Thanks again everyone. Your support and words are appreciated!

    How about telling hubby that you want to do more things with him in 2009. Play tennis, bowling, wii...

I wasn't telling anyone that I was loosing weight for the same reason you have. Now that I have lost 30 pounds and they have noticed, my hubby's grandma is constantly saying out loud that "Sandi can't have that, she's on a diet". This is not a diet. It is new healthy life style. I have lost weight so far and can still continue by portion control and exercise. I can enjoy the birthday cake as well as anyone. I can even have some ice cream and eat the cake too:) Just small amounts and planning for the party by eating veggies and fruit during the day. Good luck to you in the new year! God Bless!

    Hang in there! My one suggestion is to NOT make loosing weight a resolution, those get broken...and then that can make it worse and we can really back slide big time, instead just say New Year, New and Healthy You/Lifestyle ...always better, and take baby steps! You can do this!

    Good job today with the water!! emoticon
It is quite annoying when you have that person who can eat anything and is still a rail!! I have a girlfriend like that, she's so sweet and really supportive of my attempts to lose weight, and I love that about her. But dang I'm also jealous!! LOL
Good luck today and tonight! Be safe what ever you do!

Changing the goal date

Tuesday, December 30, 2008

9:45 a.m.
OK, so I changed my weight goal date to our wedding anniversary. It would be nice to be at the weight that the hubby fell for me. I realize that there is no way I will get to 130 by March - that would just be unsafe. So, I will figure out what I want to be at by March and shoot for it.

I still need to work on my goals for 2009 - self, house stuff, couple stuff, etc.

I felt like I did well yesterday. I did go over the calorie intake - damn those leftover Christmas cookies! But I am down 1 pound today - I know it's because I got the water in yesterday.

And let's get started

Monday, December 29, 2008

3:50 p.m. -

Ok, so far so good today.

I actually brushed my teeth after lunch and I think it's helping. I'm hungry, BUT don't feel like eating because of my teeth feel clean. So, I'm downing the water and trying to wait to dinner.

Now, what to have for dinner - it doesn't help that I'm really hungry!


Done with the holidays, time to get with it

Friday, December 26, 2008

Today is going to be slow at work, so I'm going to work on making my plans/goals for 2009. I REALLY want to get moving on this weight loss. I'm not sure if I'll make my goal of 130 by March (I know - no way will I make it), but any weight I do lose by my birthday will be an accomplishment. I can do this.

Yesterday at my hubby's mom's house, we found out that his sister and brother-in-law have been going to the gym quite a bit and they showed us pictures of the biceps while they were working out. Now, hubby's sister is skinny as it is, so now she is toned and has definition. She is lucky that her hubby is into working out also. My hubby, on the other hand, feels like people are watching him when he's in the gym and tries to eat right and will go in spurts. He does not work out at all. Our exercise is walking Pups. Anyway, I'm saying this because I cannot depend on him for support when it comes to working out.

We have a treadmill in our basement and I used it up until the time we got Pups. Hubby would use it sparingly.

I don't know if this would be wrong or not (input is welcomed) - I was thinking of using the visitor passes at different gyms just to participate in some classes. I used to love taking step and aerobic classes. I think because of the music. I was also thinking about looking into Fitness Together where it is one on one with a trainer to get the weight training in.

I definitely need the weight training. For about the last 2 weeks or so, my hip has been hurting me and I know it's because of my posture when I'm sitting. I'm leaning forward and I shouldn't. I need to strengthen my legs to get rid of the tendonitis in the one leg and the baker's cyst in the other. My left arm has been bothering me too. It hurts just to lift it. That worries me because my aunt's tendons snapped in both arms.

Here I am not even 40 and I have all these aches and pains. Not good.

    Oh yes, Use the passes! I myself love walking, and I think walking the pups is a great idea too.

    I say use the guest passes. I've been thinkin about tryin it myself.
My hubby trys to b supportive but he is hyper & naturally energetic. But with his work schedule he sleeps while I'm usually tryin to exercise.

    Girl join the crowd. I have learned that the only support you will get is from the people who are just as serious as you are about losing the weight. And don't forget yourself. We can hurt our own progress. I would say just take small steps at a time. Eventually you will get to your goal and just think now you have all of us to support you too. You Go Girl. LOL emoticon

    I so agree. I just wrote my blog on the same thing. I'm so ready to move on to 2009 and step up my goals. Good luck to you in 2009!

Merry Christmas and hopefully the last pig out day

Thursday, December 25, 2008

9 a.m.

So, after today, the food should be winding down. Hubby and I had our Christmas Eve dinner last night, today will be Chinese food and then probably more food when we visit his mom this afternoon. After that - it should be the end of the temptation and overeating. We do have some leftovers here at home, but I should be fine with the limiting.

I have been thinking this for the last week - get through Christmas and that should be it - time to get serious and buckle down. This week alone, people have said they have noticed I have lost weight. That just makes me feel so good!

Today, I received an inspiration for my goal. What better inspiration than pictures from a former crush - not a boyfriend, but a crush. To see his 2 kids and very pretty and skinny wife (even though I am happily married), makes you wonder- what could have been/where would I be if it did happen. Would I want him to see me in this shape?

So, here's to the new inspiration, putting the holidays behind me and getting as close to my goal by March.

12:45 p.m.
So I showed my hubby the crush's e-mail/christmas card. What a reminder of why I married him - back to reality - "Is he trying to get his friends back since he's not famous anymore?" "He's just showing off his family" Then hubby said - "Sorry - that was nice that he remembered us."

Hubby just brought me back to reality. Hubby always keeps me grounded. Hubby actually liked Crush the most out of the band because Crush was the nicest and most down to earth. And yes, Crush was in a band that was famous in the early 90's and I used to hang out with them (friends only, no groupie stuff) before and after hubby came into my life. Hubby was also a fan of the band (before and after we got together).

Anyway, back to reality that I have a great hubby and a great life. Hubby loves me no matter what.
