Day #18 ...month half way over

Thursday, September 18, 2014

Yeah time is flying by. Soon it'll be Thanksgiving, then Christmas and New Year!!! Seems like yesterday I said we have four months left.

Yesterday was a pretty good day. I didn't workout though. I really felt blah by mid day so I went home after going to the store to pick up a few items. I'm sitting here forcing myself to eat my omelet. My appetite right now is blah. I feel better today as far as the cold is concerned.

I ordered some new workout DVDS a while ago and they were still sitting in their packaging. I unwrapped them this morning and brought them to work with me to review the workout. I hope to start them today and make a schedule of my workouts.

Honey has been gone since Saturday for what initially was a two week training session that has now been extended to middle of next month. I made a decision after hearing that go hard on this journey while he's gone. Hopefully when he returns there will be noticeable changes in my appearance. So with the help of these videos and hopefully purchasing a bike I'll get my mojo back and strengthen this knee. My diet plan is going good. I'm still recording daily so that's a plus.

I got 7#s I'm hoping to lose by end of this month and definitely before he returns. I will be so close to my lowest weight loss weight at that point. My lowest that I have recorded was 251#s. At that time I had loss 40#s. I plan to surpass that weight this time around. I'm believing for good weigh in Saturday morning.

So for today I'm hoping that I continue to feel well and workout. Eat on plan today, journal and complete my gallon of water today.

Day #17 it got me

Wednesday, September 17, 2014

The cold that I was denying last week. I went down but not without a fight. I stayed home resting all weekend and just came back to work today. I feel better but the cold is lingering. I'm still fighting...

Went to gym and did 30 minutes on the elliptical yesterday. That's all I had mojo for. I'm still working on lowering my carbs and recording my intake daily. I haven't finished a gallon of water in a few days. Something about having a cold that I just didn't feel like drinking. Which is opposite of what I should have been doing.

I'm back at work today feeling about 75% better. Ready to continue to make a dent in this weight loss journey. Last week my weigh in was the same. Nothing gained and nothing loss. Hoping to see some different numbers this Saturday. Downward that is.

I keep believing I can and I will change my life! I believe...

Excuses or choose

Day 12.... I will not, I am not

Friday, September 12, 2014

Getting sick, no cold, bronchitis nothing....geez. I love my honey but he gets sick and always say it's not a cold but two days later I'm sick too. I drink my emergen C and do my best to not get it but here I am today feeling like dung...if it wasn't for this class I'd be home in my bed. It's suppose to rain all day which makes the office colder because there's no sun beaming in. I'm fighting back...

Yesterday was good with the exception of my dinner. I went over my calories by 100 yesterday. Today I'm low carb and trying to keep on track. I just had my high carb breakfast and got a smoothie and fruit for the rest of the day. Not sure what's for dinner yet but it will be low carb.

Day #11

Thursday, September 11, 2014 I see that (re yesterday's blog)

Morning I skipped yesterday's post for some reason. I'm in class this week so I have a little time to do my morning routine before it's time to go. But I'm hanging in there on this journey. I walked on Tuesday for a little while. But I didn't do any exercises yesterday. My sinuses/allergies were giving my grief. The weather changes here have not been my friend. Today I'm trying to come out of a Benadryl fog.

But it's my high carb day and I'm hoping that I get in a workout today. These long days and the drive have been discouraging my workouts. I got to fig a bit harder.

No time too prof so I hope it makes sense

Day #9 this ain't easy

Tuesday, September 09, 2014

This journey, food journaling, carb cycling, exercising. It's almost like having a part-time job if you're doing it right. I guess once I make this food journaling a habit it won't be such a daunting task. I was quite short on my food intake yesterday. I'm in an all day training class that's very interactive so I got a lil side tracked with my eating yesterday. Hopefully today that won't happen. I have my meals planned lil better today since it's a high carb day. It's on the low carb days I'm dropping which is good and bad. I'm consuming about 300 calories less on those days. I realized that lentils are very high in carbs a bit too late yesterday. Can't quite figure that out but on WW I stayed within my points and had 8 leftover for the day.

I skipped my workout yesterday. Got out of class late and I drove to work instead of taking the train and that commute home was no joke.

My honey decided to check me last nite about my journey. I guess that's what happens when you ask the SO to help you stay focused. He was asking why I don't make my smoothies anymore? I didn't tell him I was trying the carb cycling for this month. But I told him last nite. I didn't tell him I lost 3.2 this week either. I've been giving everyone a bi weekly update but I leave him out of the text. I want him to notice the changes on his own. I guess he's noticing my limping and aches more than body changes. But I do appreciate the fact he hasn't forgotten the yeah

Well I almost finished my gallon yesterday. I drank more than 3/4 of it. Again the class I'm in during the day played a small key in me not finishing. Today I'll make more of an effort to drink, eat and workout like I'm requiring myself to do. Less than 4 months left in thi year and I want to be changed.
