yesterday i had an awesome non scale victory.
i am not sure my dr thought so, but i did
normal triglyceride level is 150. 3 months ago, mine was 425. yesterday visit it was 345. i know that is still bad, but i have been trying a little harder the last 3 months.
i thought that was great because i am trying even harder now. i know in 3 months, it is gonna be normal.
i am reading and concentrating on eating right and excercise and getting all the info i can.
my current streak is going great!!
4 days of no sugar
4 days of no peanut butter
4 days of 30 min of excercise
4 days of no snacks once in bed
i feel awesome and empowered today!!

my first great thing that happened today-- i got up at 9 am --right when the alarm went off. i have been wanting to do this cause i want to take some 10 am classes at the ymca
2. another great thing- i had the courage to go to the class at the ymca. it was high low aerobics--things like kickboxing, and then they would do weights, and then up the intesity again and then weights. the only thing i didnt do was wear a sports bra. those babies get heavy. next time, i will wear a sports bra. this will be a weekly excercise from now on
3. i faced the music and saw my nutrtion coach at the ymca., i havent been on plan last week. this was the kick in the butt i needed.
4. now its off to work. made a great dinner for my family
i am haveing leftt over butternut squah macaroni and cheese. i got it from www.dashingdish.com that is great website.
everyone have a great on plan spark day

need to do a quick blog before i go to work
over the weekend i was shopping and found a really cute pair of shorts. i wear a 12 or 14 in shorts. however, in shirts, i have faced the fact that i need to go to plus size due to the fact that i am wide.( my dad, God rest is soul, would call me wide clyde).
so as i was looking for a pretty purple top, i couldnt find one. so i started going to other stores. my husband was looking in sears at the tools ( dont all men).
i went in several stores. as i was walking around looking, i noticed myself quickly scanning the area around me like i was worried about something. what could i be worried about.? why was i making sure no one was around? then, it dawned on me. i was worried that my husband was gonna see me looking in plus size clothes. ( he is not aware that i started getting my shirts there).
well, this is stupid , i thought as i was doing this.
this was another epiphany for me.
if i am ashamed of the dept and stores i am going in, that should give me more motivation to do better at my eating and excercising and motivation.
so, i am using this story to help me through the week. i want to get below 190 by sat night. and i want to stay there and not keep bouncing up and down.
unitl tmr, keep sparking

i have several things to blog about. thats one for today and one for tomorrow . i find myself getting hooked on this sight. when something happens or i have a thought , i think about blogging and sharing it with my spark friends
i had an epitamy. this is my weigh loss journey. i can join 100's of gyms and weight loss places. but until i figure out what works for me and i do it, nothing else will work. weight watchers can tell me to eat so many points, ymca can tell me what workouts to do, people can tell me things and give me advice but i have to get it within myself. i have to personalize it and apply it to myself
how did i come to this realization?
i did so well last week at sticking with my program. limited my nighttime eating. i am finding out that everytime i have italian food, i gain 3 lbs. i stuck with my program and got it all off last week.
so i was determined to not consume italian this weekend. and i did not. but i still got a little frivolous with my calories and after doing good all day on sat, i had 2 donuts, a poptart and 2 slices cheese.
pretty stupid, huh?
but this is a learning process.
so now, i got on scale and gained 2 lbs. i know some of it is water cause no way did i consume 7,0000 calories.
but still, another lesson learned. i must track everything all the time even on weekends and dont give myself too much extra rope.
