a reality check

Tuesday, March 19, 2013

saturday i had a huge reality check.

i was tired of not having anything nice to wear. i have 1 pair of jeans that fit me. i just keep waiting for the others to fit me. since i was going to a birthday party, i thought this would be the perfect opportunity to get something.

REALITY CHECK i have graduated to plus sizes.

that was a tough one. i managed to get in a size 14 pants and a 1x shirt. this is embarrassing. i didnt want my husband to know. somehow, he found out. i was really embarrassed by it. he just made a funny face like wow he couldnt believe it.

so now, that is my incentive. i want to buy cute little clothes. not big clothes.

i sucked it up, bought the clothes, but this is only temporary. the next time i shop, it will be smaller sizes

    Clothing manufacturers differ in sizes! I learned this the hard way. Try on different clothes from different stores and you will see. Don't let a size bring you down....you are doing so fantastic! Go you!

    Yikes! I know you are disappointed but turn that into fuel for your fire. I have an old sweatshirt that I keep as a reminder of where I came from. When I start slacking, some how I always run into it. Then I get "mad" and say No Way.

Turn this into motivation! You can do it.

a great excercise and diet plan

Wednesday, March 13, 2013


Wednesday, March 13, 2013
i started off the day on a positive note.

i did couch to 5 k week 5 day 3. i really didnt think i could do it. a 20 min jog without stopping. i let the music take over and it was great. i am really excited to keep running. i think i found a new passion.

tmr is jillian michael's day. 30 day shred day 2. she has to have her own day. i cannot combine it with c25k. i am not sure i could survive both.

i made a healthy dinner. dashing dish squash chicken parmesan. it is really good.

i swept and mopped all my floors and made dinner for my husband and son. they will know way eat what i make for me.

anyway, i am off to work. lets hope for an easy day. but hey, if it is a hard day, i just consider it more calories burned

    Hi,
I'm looking for more people who have done the C25K training. I am not a runner at all but have been feeling the urge to run and want to try this. Were you ever a runner before? What do you think of the training? I do have a little arthritis in my knees so I'm not sure how they will handle the running. Give me a shout if you have a chance just to let me know what you think of the program overall.

what can i improve upon and do i need any help or advice

Friday, March 08, 2013

my challenge was to not snack so much at night.

i am actually making great strides in this probelm. someone had suggested to have a string cheese before bed. so right before bed, i have a string cheese and i lay a bag of grapes out. last night, i came in the kitchen several times, and acually snacked on the grapes. and do you know what my husband had the nerve to do? he layed out half bag of girl scout peanut butter cookies. he layed them right by my grapes. was he trying to help or doing it as a joke? i dont know, but it really ticked me off and gave me more determination to not eat them.. i actually wanted to prove a point to him. i did not eat one single cookie

do i need more advice or motivation? i can always use extra motivation and help.

good evening to everyone.

    Loving sabotage. That's what it is sometimes. My husband has done that type of thing to me. He knows I like the cookies so he made them readily accessible. I think it was fear on his part that if I got healthy I'd leave him. Now he's more comfortable and actually helping me stay away from that type of stuff.

Good for you staying away from the cookies! Hooray!

    Good for you. Evening snacking is and always has been my biggest challenge and I have a husband who will sit with a bowl of ice cream....drives me crazy. I have found that if I plan a cup of tea and a small snack like grapes, a couple of crackers or a piece of cheese it leaves me not feeling deprived and still stays with my program. Keep working, sounds like you are doing great.

how i am doing day by day with my challenge

Tuesday, March 05, 2013

my challenge was to have 1 or 2 small snacks after work

how i am doing day by day

i am still struggling but doing better. last night i came home from work literally starving. i stood and thought about what i wanted. i even opened a container of yogurt and said, no i dont really want that. i went with my old standy-peanut butter and jelly sandwich. but instead of scooping out a ton of peanut butter, i measured a tbs. man, i gotta tell you, i was going way over that before,. no wonder i couldnt lose weight. peanut butter really can quench my appetite.

so i felt the need to munch a lttle more after that and i had a cup of dry cheerios.

this is a huge step for me. i would still like to cut back tho. i have def made huge strides compared to a few weeks ago.


what can i improve on

i am doing well, but i need to keep tv off and occupy myself with book, crossword puzzle or something that requires my mind. that way i will keep it occupied and not be thinking mindlessly about food.
i also need to go to bed earlier. right now it is around 2 am. i would like to go around 12:30 or 1 so i can wake up earlier.

    Good job on the cutting back. I know what you mean about peanut butter. It's amazing how much you can spread on a sandwich if you don't measure it. This is my standby also as I'm often hungry when I get home from work late at night. I measure 1 tbsp and put it on a slice of my whole wheat bread. It holds me over until morning and also adds some protein to my day (something I'm often short on).

Keep it up - you're doing emoticon

    Sounds like you are on the right track. One trick I use when I have the after work munchies (which more often than not is a the day is over time to relax trigger for me) is to do a little exercise like walking for about 10 - 15 minutes. If I still feel like eating it's real hunger and not just boredom/end of day syndrome.

Good luck!
