I went to a concert tonight (which was incredibly awesome by the way) and I was super hungry afterward. We stopped at IHOP so not the best choices in the world, but It could have been worse. I'm not too worried about it so tomorrow I'm just going to work out pretty hard and perhaps eat some lighter meal choices. It seems like a good solution.


New equipment

Thursday, August 02, 2007

I bought some dumbbells and resistance bands today. I feel like this will definitely enhance my strength training and kick start my metabolism for more weight loss. I just bought 3 lb weights because I figure that I will learn the moves off sparkpeople and practice on the weights at home before I begin to use the ones at the gym. I almost bought a swiss ball but I figure that I have enough learning to do for now and that ball can wait. Hopefully I'll get one when they go on sale.


Multiple Family Birthdays = Slacking Off :-(

Wednesday, August 01, 2007

I feel like I've been slacking off a bit. Although I have been exercising regularly I know that I haven't been eating exactly how I should. Yet I'm still logging everything honestly even though I've had a couple days that I've gone way out of my calorie range. It's been hard these past few days because my grandmother's birthday was on Friday and my mom's was on Sunday so we've gone out to eat so much in the past few days that I sort of lost control of myself and definitely over ate. But today is another day and I'm going to go to the gym and work out and stay within my calorie range for the day.
On a different note recently I've noticed something lately in people's behavior towards me. I've been noticing that my friends and family are starting to try to get me to eat things that aren't so healthy. For example my sister was trying to talk me into getting dessert last night when we went to O'Charley's for dinner, but I passed it up even though she said she would pay for it. I don't think they're doing it to spite me or anything, but I feel like they are unconsciously trying to stop me from losing. Perhaps I'm making to big of a deal about it, but it just seems like it is happening more since I'm beginning to lose weight.

I want to end this post with a positive note today though. Even with my bad eating habits this week I still am managing to lose some weight. I've lost a half pound since Sunday morning so I'm grateful for that. Monday Is my normal weigh day so hopefully I can squeeze in losing another pound or two by that time.


20 Down!!!

Sunday, July 29, 2007

So I weighed myself today and found out that I'm 233 lbs which means I've not only lost 2.5 lbs this week but I've lost 20 lbs since joining SP. WOOHOO! I also wanted to confess that I'm cheating my weigh in by one day because my TOM is here and I don't want to weigh in tomorrow for fear that I may gain (because of retained water weight) and become discouraged. So I'm holding off on weighing and measuring myself until next Monday when my body will be back to normal.

I feeling quite optimistic today.

Sunday, July 22, 2007

Tomorrow is the official weigh in day. Hmmm.... we'll see how that goes. I've been exercising whenever possible. I even managed to squeeze in some time after work to go to the gym before it closed for the day. I'm still madly in love with the elliptical machine. I feel as though I'm burning more calories with it than by just walking. I can go longer distances at a faster pace than by just walking alone. I think I push myself harder on it because it puts less strain on my knees and ankles. Not that I have joint problems or anything, but at this weight I don't want to create any or injure myself seriously.

Oh I need to mention that today is my one month anniversary on SP, and I was thinking about different things it has done for me so far. Not only have I lost 15 lbs (and perhaps more since my weekly weigh in is tomorrow) and some inches here and there, but I've noticed other non-measurable differences. I was noticing today that my skin feels a ton more moist and soft. Just a month ago my skin was very dry and flaky in spots. So I think I have not only drinking ample water to thank for that, but I've also been taking my multi-vitamin everyday and I think that it has been a crucial part as well. Another thing I've noticed is that at work I don't tire as easily (I'm a server at a busy restaurant) and I feel as though I'm moving faster without feeling like I've I need to take a break. Overall I feel so much healthier.
