Finally.... getting back into the swing of things.

Wednesday, March 26, 2014

After months of nothing but weight gain. I am finally starting to get back on track. Getting back to the gym is helping me feel " alive " again. I just love the way I feel after a good workout.
Now that I'm getting back to the gym and getting some exercise in, I really need to put more effort into healthier food choices.

Some goals to help me out are:

To be mindful of what I am eating. emoticon

No eating in front of the TV emoticon

Drink 8 glasses of water daily emoticon

Track my food intake

Day 1 ........ again

Monday, February 17, 2014

Where to start? Over the past couple of months, I've totally lost all self control. I eat junk all the time, and forget about portion control. I eat what ever, when ever. Last night, after eating so much chocolate I felt sick, I said ENOUGH. I am sick of gaining weight, feeling like crap, being moody and having trouble sleeping.
I started this year off by joining a challenge to lose 14lbs in 2014. I have pretty much gained 14lbs emoticon
So this morning I got up, ate a healthy breakfast and headed right to the gym (it's been months since I stepped foot inside!)
I plan on tracking my food, and watching my portions. I am ready to start over, and try my best to stay on track. So here's to emoticon

    You can do this, I don't always make good choices but tomorrow is always a new day. I too need to lose 14 pounds to stay the least, let's keep each other accountable. I have confidence in you that you can do this. I make a point to exercise every day, no excuses. Even last night I made myself walk 1 mile w/ Leslie so I did not break my streak!

Before and after 70lbs lost picture.

Sunday, October 20, 2013

After losing and gaining, I felt like I had lost my way a little. I was feeling depressed, and was only looking at the big picture, instead of being happy for all that I have accomplished so far.
Before I never worked out. Ate fast food ALL the time, and lived life in the background.
Now I love going to the gym. I make meals myself at home, and enjoy and get involved in life.
Over the summer holidays I gained almost 15lbs, and was very ashamed of myself for slipping so quickly into my old habits. Now I finally feel like I am on the right track again. I had a bump in the road, but will never give up.
This morning when I got up and weighed myself, I was happy to see that in total I have lost 70lbs since Jan 2013. My next goal is to get to onderland!

The picture quality isn't that great here.

I am very thankful for all of my spark friends, many of you helped me more than you will ever know.

But even great is sliding back and realizing you can stop it and keep moving forward!

Today was a total write off......

Sunday, October 13, 2013

I'm a Canadian girl emoticon and this is our thanksgiving weekend. emoticon
This is my confession, emoticon
I did not count calories today, there was no portion control (I had seconds) had apple pie for desert, and even managed to fit a chocolate bar in there somewhere. emoticon

Tomorrow will be a better day, a better week. It's time to get serious.
I am very disappointed with myself.
