Back in the gym!!

Tuesday, July 31, 2012

I'm showing up to say im still here and im still determined to make it.

I made it to the gym for the first time since my mom died in April. I was out of gym some months before that.... I'm proud of myself for making it back. Now its just a matter of time before I'm back at goal 1 where I left off!

Im happy that my fitness is still better than the first time I started this journey.... On the elliptical when I first started I could not last 3 minutes on level 1!! Today I did 5 strong minutes on level10 before lowering the intensity cuz I'd just done 30 mins on the spin bike.

I spent a week learning dances for a weekend of worship WOW at church and had to dance pretty intensely Friday tru Sunday. That was my inspiration to roll with the momentum and get back in the gym today. Yay me!

A Quickie!

Saturday, April 07, 2012

I tried blogging from my phone a couple of times but my internet connection on my phone is not reliable at best.

I'm splicing in a few good food choices among my bad ones... and circumstances have kept me away from a pint of my favorite Ben and Jerry's at the grocery, lol

So im here. sorta

Keeping sanity kinda trumping keeping slim right now... I rest in the confidence that I've done it before, I'll do it again.

    At least you are here....that is half the battle. As the saying goes: "Just keep showing up." That is what I do....I keep logging on to Spark every day, reading e-mails, blogs, articles and hoping that some of it will sink in through osmosis!! I have not been big on the actual weight loss, but have greatly increased my activity levels, so those darling fat cells are going to soon have to leave their cosy home on my thighs!!!
Take care and hang in there. Do what you can and praise yourself for your good choices.

Blogging two days in a row!!! Whoo hoo!!!!

Went gym this am. Was not keeping up but I did it!

Had a salad for brunch.

Two good choices in one day! Wow!

I finished the slice of cheesecake from yesterday. And had coffee then granola (only a little) with sweetened condensed milk. My two baddies for today.

Overall I feel good for what I did today.

I also skipped visiting mom today... For me! My first day off in over a week. I really needed the break. Yay for taking care of me!!!

I'm sitting here in front of a delicious slice of caramel fudge cheesecake considering my ways.

Its not like I did not give my conscience a good chance to talk me out of it.
I did.

Its not like I have never done this before. Not like I don't know food changes nothing but your weight. But once again I convinced myself to buy the cake.

It was so sad that I had to come back from months of absence just to blog about it.

I feel like a strung out junkie lying in the drain I fell into after my drunken stupor.
Now I'm sober and feeling stupid.

You see I bought a rich and delicious brownie just half hour ago but it did not drown the pain.
I had cheesecake yesterday too. *shame*

The why I'm doing this to myself matters little.

But since u asked, mom is in a hospice dying of cancer and suffice it to say I'm not coping well.
Although exactly what I'm not coping with may surprise you! But let's leave that for another blog.

Thanks to deciding to blog I did not finish the cheesecake.

For now that's victory enough.

Soon I'll update you all on all I've been up to since u last heard from me.

    Don't be too hard on yourself with the food right now. You have enough to endure with your mom's declining health.
Take care, and glad to see you back.

    I'm so sorry to hear about your mom - it must be an extremely trying time for you.

Don't beat yourself up too much - sometimes your emotions have to win out.

    IMHO, you did the right thing,, how about walking over to the neighbor's house and knocking on the door and handing them the cheesecake..
two winners for the price of one!

Smallest size so far!!

Thursday, June 23, 2011

My weight is being stubborn still as I have not yet recactured 224 my lowest recorded weight. The closest ive gotten is 228 once. emoticon

I dont care because my clothes tell a different story... emoticon

I'm at my smallest size so far!!!
The jackets and jeans I bought at the end of 2010 are now fitting well!!!
I can button the jackets and they rest flush on my body. (I'd bought them a size small)
My favorite jeans I blogged about needs a belt as the waist is too big. The changed cut from the pair I had before was not in my favour but it is still better than anything I can find here even at higher cost.

So in summary I am one happy camper and i'm motivated to ride this wave and get even smaller while I can. It's giving me the strength to do better with my eating so the rewards can manifest.

Love u all!!!
