Day 127 - Water

Tuesday, April 15, 2014

Besides my ability to guesstimate the amount of calories in a single item, drinking water was something I managed to hold onto during this process I call "the ongoing weight loss debacle."

I have fallen so far into slacker mode, even my water consumption has decreased. I used to drink water before/during and in most cases after every meal but recently I'm only drinking a bottle maybe two a day.

So... starting today (which I was supposed to restart everything yesterday but that's neither here nor there) I am going to drink 1/2 my weight in ounces everyday. 94.5 ounces a day to be exact. emoticon

Now if I could just get my head to tell my feet to get back to the gym everything else should fall into place.

Day 115 - My Oh My

Thursday, April 03, 2014

Wow... 115 days in and it feels like Day 1 all over again.

Anywho.. this last week or so has been filled with purging (I was one magazine away from my own Hoarders episode, I tell ya), moving and transitioning so my gym visits have fallen to the wayside. Now that it seems life is getting back to normal, I'm trying to get myself re-committed. I try not to think of what progress I would've made if I would have found the time to at least get a 30 minute walk in or leave the fast food alone... but whatever. emoticon

Also.. I'm beginning to think I may need to try a different approach to all of this. I claim to "know how to do this" and "I don't need anyone to tell me what to do because no one knows me like I do", but apparently same approach gives me the same results or lack thereof. I'm thinking I may want to look into getting a little help from a personal trainer or finding a group that works out together or something. I'm finding it too difficult to stay motivated and I hate to give up for the millionth time. Let the research begin...

You can do it...we all start and stop for the millionth time. It all part of the process.

Keep on doing you.
Hang in there. emoticon

Day 100 - Best not to Stress

Wednesday, March 19, 2014

Here I am at day 100 of my "Finally Getting Serious" weight loss journey and I must admit I'm not where I thought I would be and discovered once again how hard it is to keep that beast mode momentum going. But... I did realize one thing (as if I didn't know this already), stressing about not achieving goals won't help you accomplish a thing but headaches and food splurges.

I don't know why I put so much pressure on myself to achieve this magical size that I swear would change my entire life around the moment I hit that number on the scale. I am pretty happy with myself but find myself a slave to that scale more times than I can count on fingers and toes combined. It's like the 15 year old me is in constant battle with the 41 year old me. One of us has to give in. emoticon

So I have decided to just focus on this weight loss journey day-by-day. If I can't or won't make it to the gym some days.. remember there is always the next day. If I happen to splurge and eat a cookie or two or five..remember I can always regroup and make sure to cut back somewhere else. If I'm not wearing a string bikini by July.. there's always next July (you know little things like that) emoticon

    Continue to live until you reach the number on the scale.

    So true...stressing out doesn't help. Take it one day at a time, one step at a time. emoticon emoticon

Day 96 - The Power of 'dem Jeans

Saturday, March 15, 2014

I've managed to make it to the gym pretty consistently this week. Trying to get the eating habits back in check, but I still am indulging a little more than I should.

However.... I managed to slip on an old pair of jeans today that I haven't worn in quite a while and I didn't have suck it in, jump up and down or button under the belly. It was the wake-up call I needed. I'm not as off track as I thought I was.

Someone can hold their head up a little higher this weekend. emoticon

Day 90 - Spring Forward

Sunday, March 09, 2014

I did make a big promise to myself that I was going to start the month of March off in "beast" mode (well, in my case "small monster" mode) but needless to say, things haven't exactly worked out as planned. Too many distractions. Too many excuses. Each have gotten in the way of progress. The only thing I have to hold on to is my dedication to the treadmill during lunch hour and my strawberry smoothies with chia seeds. The other food items I consume in between are just shameful. emoticon emoticon

I haven't done a squat, dumbell row, bicep curl or any other strength training exercise since late February. Why? I have no idea. The juicer has remained dismantled since the last glass of juice was made last month also. Oh! and tracking food.. forget about it.

So... once again I decided to make this Sunday my new re-start. Will be going to the gym in about an hour or so and I will do at least one or two reps of strength exercises. Ooh..why does this have to be so hard? LOL!

    Let the yesterdays go, unless they have value for the journey yet to come....and as for your question, my 2cent answer is the tougher to reach a goal the easier to bring the lesson learned back. emoticon

Love the pics!
