monday and on track

Monday, March 30, 2009

emoticonit's monday morning and i've already gotten in my pilates, and some cardio. bring on the day. monday's at work are always stressfull and i fully intend to be ready for this one. i have goals set for myself this week and i intend to meet each one. i've already got in more strength training than the last couple of weeks. sad i know but i've been lazy. no other excuse for it. i've also stuck to plan this weekend and i'm happy about that. even had a fish fry with my daughters family and stuck to my calorie limits. i'm trying to take this one day at a time but sometimes i tend to look way a head and just get upset with my progress so far. i have a friend i met on spark and she tells me since i don't have as far to go as some the weight is going to come off slower. i know in reality she is correct...but in my mind i want to see results fast that same as anyone would. big or small, some or a whole lot, we all are fighting the same battle here. trying to save ourselves from ourselves. so till next time remember....we will get there from here. emoticon

    Hey, Sister! You go girl! Doesn't it feel great to push yourself? Those exercise enodorphins will carry you thorugh the stress today! I waled 7 miles yesterday! That's definately a record for me! I didit in diffeent stints and am really tired this morning (though I wasn't last night). I'm heading out shortly to work in my classroom and get my report cards done. (ugh! I hate that job.... but if I knock them out today.... getting them done won't interfere w/ my walking this week!) I AM jumpstarted for my mileage.... I hae a goal of 20 miles each week.... it IS what has melted off my lbs, I'm sure!

Hve a GREAT day!

my weigh in...

Saturday, March 28, 2009

emoticonhere it is i lost another .8lbs. i should be on top of the world but i'm a bit sad. i did so well and thought i had done better. i'm so close to my next five pound goal and i guess i got a bit greedy. i even got on and got off and back on just to be sure. i don't know i wonder did i eat enough. i didn't hit my calorie mark a lot of times, not for lack of trying. and i did my walks, but slacked on the pilates. i guess i just need to regroup. yes i gave myself the you did fine speech and the pat on the back and still i wonder if i didn't try enough. i know this is just a week in many and heck i'm down 12lbs, so what is my problem. people would be thrilled with this loss. i just need to dust off my a** and get back on the path to more resistance and get going. i'm so close. last night i had a muncho moment, bought them for supper and had them with a book. you know the sad part is i know i can't eat just one. so why did i buy them? i was feeling sorry for myself and thinking really what difference would it make. well now i'm over the pity party and moving ahead. today is a new day and i have six days to my next weigh in. so here goes guys, my weeks goals....drink my water, do more pilates for core, keep up the walking, and no chips, this week. i will get there from here. emoticon

  I hear you! My down fall are crackers, even though I choose healthier ones it is very easy for me to over indulge. I have just started again in the last two+ weeks to become more aware of what I eat. I think we all need to not be so hard on our selves. We are trying, otherwise we would not be spending time on sparkpeople.

    Go easy on yourself kiddo! You're much closer to your goal weight than many of us. Those last few pounds are harder to come off than for those of us who have 80-100 pounds to lose. It's coming off.... it HAS come off ..... and you're working hard... you're not an awful person for having Munchos... your mind and heart are in a WAY better place than you might have beens sometime before when you might have eaten lots of munchos and NOT exercised at all. You WILL get there from here!

last chance day....again

Thursday, March 26, 2009

well here i am another week just about over. seems i say this same thing week after week, i never tire of it though. these days have been some of the best in my life. i have learned how to eat better, exercise regurally, and my self confidence if rising daily. so i would have to give sp a 10 for this site. the support i get from week to week and the ideas are just heaven sent. i'm not a bordom snacker(much anymore) i stop and check myself..am i really hungry or is this just a want. i find more and more the need is not there. i don't go back for seconds unless i've sat for a minute and let what i just ate get in my stomach. sometimes again you think that tasted like more but in reality your full to the rim. i'm learning daily about myself and this site, my body, it's needs and wants, my mind..also it's needs and wants and i've met some great friends along the way. teresa thanks for taking the time to say hello daily, and cat, thank you for being my rock and sounding board at work and on line. so bring on tomorrow i'm ready. i may not hit my fifteen lb mark this week but you know what? there is always next week and the one after that. shoot i'm farther now than i ever have been. so yes i will get there from here.

    I'm glad you've had a good week and that you have a good attitude toward whatever comes your way. My SP journey has only been one of about 35 days and i can't believe how "transformed" I am. The transformation is a mental one mostly... the physical one is happening more slowly.... but the MIND part must come first! SP has changed our MINDSET! Isn't it great?! Thanks for being a great pal!

    It's a great feeling that you know there is always tomorrow to get to where you want to be. I guess it's the one day at a time syndrome. Keep it up and I know we'll both get there!

monday....beginning of a new week.

Monday, March 23, 2009

Well here we are at Monday. Man what a wonderful weekend and now back to the grind. I would love to say i accomplished a whole lot this weekend but that would be way off the mark. I really did a lot but never seemed to accomplish much. I don't know if others have the problem. Yesterday we ran errands and by the time my husband and i returned the day was almost over. So out the window that day went. I mean i got a lot done in the errands but i really wanted to sit home and relax. Oh well today is a new day. I stayed on plan all weekend. We went out to eat with my daughter and her husband and my grandson saturday. They all wanted chinese. I did well, didn't overdo and enjoyed myself. The next morning it hit me. man was i not feeling well yesterday. Neither was my daughter so it wasn't just me not having that food for so long. I try to stay away from fats and such and i thought it was that. Nope, we decided no more of that for a while. LOL. Oh well i'm find now and all is well. I've not weighed myself all weekend or today. Man what a change that is. I was getting on all the time. I'm trying to wean myself from letting the scales control my progress. So I will say goodbye for now and remember...We can get there from here.

    I'm glad you had a good weekend! Funny, I did better last weekend diet-wise when I was off on a trip than I did here at home this weekend, where I can control everything! (or not! emoticon ) But I'm down 4 lbs (thanks to the walking I'm sure) so I can't be too worried that I ate chocolate last night! TTYL
