YaY Me!

Tuesday, May 06, 2008

So, yesterday I went and toured the gym. I liked it and they gave me a seven day pass to try it out. I didn't work out yesterday though and my plan was to go this morning on my way home from work. Well, I caught myself numerous time throughout the night at work making excuses. Oh, I'm so busy I'm going to be tired tomorrow. I don't have my charting done yet so I won't get out on time so I'll have to skip the gym. BUT I didn't. I went. I only did 30 minutes plus a cool down on the elliptical but that is way better than nothing. I was hoping to go again tomorrow morning but I have to have a meeting with my manager before I leave work and I have to watch my nephew for a couple hours so I don't think I'll get it in after work but before sleep. We'll see. Otherwise I'll make the boy take a walk with my when I wake up.
Ok, that's all. I was proud.
I have to go get some stuff done before heading to work.
Hope everyone had a good day!

Tuesday, April 08, 2008

Well. I've been slacking on our team challenge. I started working nights on Monday night and I'm trying to rework my schedule. I was doing really well before. I've never been a scheduled kind of girl but working full time days really helped. I woke up, ate breakfast, took my vitamin, drank green tea on the way to work, had lunch, came home, had a snack, cooked dinner, went for a walk all the while drinking tons of water. Well, now my life has been flipped and it'll take me awhile to figure out what is going to work best.
The good news is, I weighed in this morning...well, this afternoon when I woke up and I was down to 171.2. That means I have crossed the 20 pound mark and I'm very excited! At the beginning of this month I had set a goal to be down to 165 by the end of April. That means I have 6.2 pounds and 3 weeks to go. Here is hoping...that and working my ass off to get there. Tonight is my third night in a row working. Hopefully my body will start getting used to it soon and I'll be able to sleep for more consecutive hours during the day.
I'm off to find a snack and get ready to go in to work. I hope everyone has a wonderful night and I'll check in soon.

  


april 3

Thursday, April 03, 2008

Ok, for some reason it won't let me paste into the blog. Strange.
Anyways. I tried to post yesterday and it wouldn't work then either. Bummer.
I went over my calories today...BUT not by many. I only worked out minimally....BUT it is better than nothing.
It was my birthday today so we went out to dinner to celebrate. I decided that I wasn't going to go crazy and eat anything and everything but that I wasn't going to mentally count each calorie that I put in my mouth. I'm going to try to work out extra tomorrow to make up for the cheesy goodness otherwise known as alfredo that I indulged in today.

    Don't beat yourself up! Those days have passed and I hope that you had a wonderful birthday. Today is a new day and don't look back and regret. Just learn from it and live in the present.

April 1

Tuesday, April 01, 2008

Well, I don't normally blog two days in a row but I felt inclined to do so today so here goes. We started a new challenge on the brides team today and I plan to post everyday. I weighed in at 173.8 today. I'm hoping to be down to 165 by the end of the month. That is 2.2 pounds a week. I think, no wait, I know that it is going to be hard but I really want to push myself to do this. So, not only will I be posting in the challenge forum, I'm going to keep myself accountable on the blog too.

Day One- April 1

1. 50 minutes brisk walking
2. No strength training today
3. Calories consumed : 1281 (my range: 1270-1620)
4. Water: 10+
5. weigh in: 173.8

I have realized that whenever I think about my weight, my number...my first thought it wrong. So, today I was 173.8 but whenever I try to remember what my weigh in was I think 190something. I kept correcting myself today because I kept thinking 193.8. Now it is only for a split second, but still. My mind hasn't gotten used to the idea that I no longer weight 190anything. I'm hoping that my mind and body can keep it that way.
That is all for tonight. I'll check in tomorrow.
I hope that everyone had a good April Fools day!

    Congrats! I totally understand. I am 174.2 and I hope to be down to 165 by the end of April! My wedding is June 21, 2008. My biggest fear is that I will have a double chin and huge flabby arms in my wedding pictures! yuck. I have about 2 months to fix this issue!

Wow, that is so awesome you lost a lot already! This is only week two for me. I reached 180 and told myself I have to do something to fix this!

Does it get easier as the weeks go by?

Last day of March

Monday, March 31, 2008

Well, it is the last day in March. I've been using SP for about 2 and a half months and have lost 18.2 pounds. I would like to get to that 20 pound mark this coming week. I've really slowed down on the weight loss. I wish that I could be wondering why but I know it is just because I haven't been sticking to my plan. I have been eating good most days, but not great and pretty terribly on a few days. Like yesterday, I went over my range...by a lot. If I had just had water all day like I normally do, I would have been fine. BUT I drank 600 calories yesterday. Not good.
SO....what am I going to do to change it? Well, one of the women in my team has decided she needs a challenging challenge so to hold ourselves accountable we are going to post out workouts, calories and water every day. I'm hoping this will give me the extra push to get things done. So, it starts today...on the last day of March.
I'm off to accomplish great things on my day off. :) Like cleaning and planning and checking things off the ever growing to do list.
Hope everyone has a fabulous week!!
