well as of late (the last few weeks) I have not really been losing much weight, kinda bumping around between 196 and 198. I have been eating ok... I will have a good day and then a bad day... I also have not been working out like I was before. I have been working out maybe 3 days a week and when I do workout its half a$$.
I dont want to just flounder I want to shine. I want to get myself under control again and have something to be really proud of.
My eating has not really been a problem, besides snacking. I have been working the last few days to get that under control and have been doing pretty good. I am trying to stick to 5 meals a day, breakfast-lunch-snack-dinner-snack .... and keep out the random snacking.
Lol I was reading in health magazine the other day and they have a term for mothers who eat left overs off of there kids plates. (MOMNIVORE) lol. I thought that was cute. Well that has been me the last few weeks... and its not cute. Im sure the peanut butter and jelly crusts I cut off the kids sandwiches, (double fiber or not) and the random half a cookie or wheat cracker or baby orange here and there really adds up at the end of the day. Its no wonder I have been losing a pound and then gaining half a pound back each week... I prob consuming a few hundred extra calories in random tidbits off the kids plates each day.
I am mainly going to focus on my exercise the next few weeks. I plan to keep a log of what I do each day in my blog so I can stay accountable. I really want to be able to fit into a few items of clothing I have by summer. I can get into the clothes now but they are tight... alot tighter than they should be... I may have jumped the gun by a tad bit when I bought thouse size 16 jeans the other day... lol.... I can fit into them but one of the 2 pairs is way to tight to wear out.
Workout 5 days per week.... Biggest Loser Exercise video on Mon, Wend, Thurs ..... Elliptical on Tuesday (durring biggest loser) ..... saturday do something fun but active (a big goal for me & a challenge cause I dont get out much and dont take alot of time for myself usually)
* I want my size 16 Jeans to fit good - Loose
* I want to fit comfortably in my new size 14 dress (Its hard to breath in now lol)
* I want to fit into my size L sun dress
* I want to be able to wear my size Youth L "Mae" band T-Shirt that I got for my birthday but it was too small cause its a youth size
..... I hope to accomplish this stuff by early summer. I think they are reasonable goals considering that all the clothes I have listed I can squeeze my big butt into, I just cant go out of the house in the stuff because I cant breath and look like a stuffed sausage in them lol.
I think its important for me to have concrete goals as well as a plan to reach thouse goals. Right now I have been kinda going along the lines of "I get there when I get there" .... which I still fully beleive that I will continue no matter what and as long as I am moving in the right direction I am in a good place, no matter the time it takes..... I just think that in order for me to keep moving forward I am going to need a map lol... and I want to also be able to see in the distance what I am sailing twards.
I am excited to be starting a new small chapter in my journey... I have had a great day, I stayed within my calorie range and even though I did not get my workout in untill It was almost 11pm, I did do it. I did a biggest loser cardio workout dvd and it kicked my butt... I am going to be in total pain tomorow because of it... but the good kind.
Well here is to new begginings and to continuing with the journey at hand
