Vacation

Saturday, June 27, 2009

Hi all my SP Friends!
I wanted to let you know that I am going on vacation for 2 weeks starting tomorrow so if you don't see me around don't worry! I will be back. I am one pound away from goal so now (in my book) the real work begins! Maintenance! I will need SP more than ever.
I know all my SP Friends are doing great and when I get back I will be checking up on you! Take Care and have a wonderful 4th!

Lizzy

Mirror

Thursday, May 28, 2009

I went to have my hair cut yesterday and as usual I sat in the chair looking at my stylist through the mirror while we talked. Then I got a glimpse of myself and TOTALLY lost track of what I was saying! I notice for the first time that my face has become thinner. I have "square" shaped face (which I really don't like I think it makes me look like a football player but that is another blog) and I saw my cheek bones and my nose is smaller. I am so happy with the changes in my body but I really want more. Is that wrong? I think I look the same just in a smaller size. I want to look different, as in toned and maybe even sculpted.
I have come a long way with my eating habits. I even spent all weekend last weekend out of town, eating out for every meal and only once went over my calories and that was only by about 40! I have gotten into a routine with cardio and I love my treadmill for the first time since I bought it 5 years ago! I know in order for me to reach my final goals I need to do more strength so I think I am going to try to concentrate in June to strength training. Maybe join a gym where I can have more access to free weights and weight machines. Make that a habit like getting up early and jumping on the treadmill has become.
So there I told you what my June goal has become so I expect everyone that reads this to hold me accountable! Go ahead and view my exercise log or add a comment asking me about it and if you don't start seeing some strength in there. Give me a kick in the behind!
Thanks for reading.

    I hear ya! I know how important strength training is and it's what I'm avoiding so far. I seem to be able to still make excuses not to do it. The cardio has become enjoyable and I even started the couch to 5K this week. I had decided two weeks ago to do the 100 push ups challenge and so far have done the initial test and day 1. I have made it a challenge today to get the push ups going....as my body needs today off from jogging two days in a row. Send a big kick my way too please!

If no one sees you eating do those calories count?

Monday, May 18, 2009

OK I caught myself thinking that very thought earlier today! That darn Red Velvet cake that I made for church yesterday! There were only 3 pieces left and then someone put 2 cupcakes on my cake plate! So now there are 5 servings of cake in my house! I planned my meals and figured out I could have that piece of cake. Well I did, then I wanted another. I thought no one will have to know I already had one if I eat another for desert tonight!
CAN YOU BELIEVE IT??! Darn my head! I will know! It doesn't really matter if anyone else knows!


but i still want that other piece of cake...

    LOL! I know exactly what you mean! If no one sees me eat it and I don't put it into my tracker then it must not count. And I only do that evil mind trick for sweets that I shouldn't be eating in the first place.

Fat Feet

Monday, May 04, 2009

So, I needed new shoes - 2 pair to be exact. One for work (heels) and one for working out. So I go to the store and try on the "usual" size. Guess what? The are to big!! Now I think I was over weight by 1 lb when I started here at SP so of all the places I expected to loose weight... my FEET wasn't one of them!!! I am not really thrilled by this smaller size as I was wearing a 5.5 - 6 NOW I am in 5 - 5.5! Do you know how hard it its to find shoes this small?!? It is NOT easy! I had to go to the kid section for the workout shoes!?!
Why oh why couldn't I have lost that weight in my tummy instead of my feet?!
OK - I am done.
Thanks for reading!

    That would be irritating.. I have a lot of shoes I would no longer be able to wear. It's so great that you're losing weight.. but.. feet? Huh.

    Oh the places we find that have lost weight...I too went down a half size and no more wide width either...of course my size isn't hard to find.
You just never know where the weight is going to come off...

Hormonal Cravings...

About a week before I start (you know what) I get really sleepy and start craving chocolate and sweets. Most of the time I have a small "fun size" piece of candy or fruit and I am good but it always gets me because I work so hard to eat right the rest of the month only to feel like I don't have any control over it. I know it is hormonal so I decided to do a Spark People Web search on Hormonal Cravings and this is what I came up with. I haven't had time to read it all but it sounds like something and a ton of other women may benefit from!
Let me know what you think!
