Day 110 - Exercise & Mu gu gai pan

Tuesday, July 19, 2011

Week 1 of BLC#11 is almost over, weigh in tomorrow, I'm not horribly worried I have no idea how much weight I've lost but I'm going on 17 days of exercising everyday!!! That's an accomplishment!!! I think in 10 days (4 months back on Sparkpeople) I'm going to up my workouts to 20 minutes a day (I'm on 15 right now).

Oh and my husband and I went on a 10 minute STRAIGHT jog last night!!! Believe me that was tough for me right now! But now I know I can do it! It's only going to increase from here. I can't imagine not exercising everyday anymore, it's like clock work at 8 - 9 pm I just feel it heavy on me to get out and do something.

Oh and I'm attempting to cook Chinese tomorrow, I think this is like attempt number 4... well 4th times the charm! It never turns out good, no flavor, too runny... it's a disaster but I LOVE Chinese food but I can't do the calories anymore to go eat out! I used to save all my calories for the day then binge on Chinese food at night... not any more!!! So I'm going to give it one more try because I know I can make a healthy version! I'll let you know how it goes!

    You are doing great! Running is hard and cooking Chinese food is harder. Lol Great job on the consistent exercise. I am so off that wagon right now. :P

Day 103 - Weigh In Tomorrow!

Tuesday, July 12, 2011

Tomorrow is my next weigh in! I'm hoping to see 223 but less would be awesome as well!!! Tomorrow is also the beginning of BLC #11!!! I'm really excited because I just feel like I'm a part of something more! I really enjoy team activities... although you probably wouldn't know it because of how shy I am... I'm sorry WAS! Something I've noticed is that as I loose weight I'm becoming more and more open to talking to other people!

:::Sleep Journal:::
So this is going to be my last sleep journal, I have about a week left on my spark challenge but I really want to concentrate on BLC #11.
I know what I have to do to get to bed and sleep better! It's just doing it that I'm having trouble with!!!
1) Get on Sparkpeople, spin wheel, update anything, blog from 7 - 8p
2) All electronics off at 8p!!!
Between 8 & 9 get that last 15 minutes of working out done if needed
3) Kids in bed by 9 - 9:30
4) Me in bed by 10!!!!!!

That's all I gotta do, but I tell you what I don't do it and I need that time on sparkpeople to log in everything I did for the day and make sure everythings caught up!!!

Day 100 - Watermelonpalooza!!!

Saturday, July 09, 2011

******I don't know how but I messed up my day count again!!! So now I'm just going to check under sparkpoints - Bonus/Milestone points, that will tell me how many days I've been active******

So I joined BLC #11 a while back, some time in June and I got my team a few days ago, the watermelon weightlifters, and I'm just so excited to be involved in more and I just want more because this really keeps me motivated!!! You know... I think I'm going to title my page Watermelonpalooza... just cuz it sounds kinda awesome!!! Anyways!!! I may seem like a complete weirdo!!! But I really don't care I've lost a total of 55 pounds using this site, I'm constantly refering people! I love the way I feel and look! Plus this is the only place I don't feel like I have to cover up all my fat! Like literally I would wear a jacket on 100+ degree days just because I didn't want people to see my fat arms! But finally I'm starting to be comfortable in my own skin! I'll actually wear short sleeves and shorts outside the house!!! I haven't done that since before middleschool!!! I'm 23!!!

I just have a lot of sparkpeople team spirit and my spark is growing into a HUGE flame!!!!

Day 96 - I can feel myself slipping! But I haven't fallen!!!

Tuesday, July 05, 2011

So I haven't completely back slid since Friday! Praise God! But I just feel like I'm still slipping slowly. I keep taking bites of things I shouldn't eat, like when I'm preparing food for my daughter or I'll ask my husband for a bite of what he's eating. And him and I have talked about him eating whatever he wants around me, he's going to stick a lot better to my meal plan so I'm not so tempted to snack on whatever he's eating. Which I know will help, but I still have to gain control over what I'm doing regardless of what's going on around me, this is a lifestyle change! Sometimes it sucks when we get invited to spur of the moment BBQ's, but I really appreciate when my family compliments me on how well I'm doing. So I'm just going to stay strong, keep planning what I'm supposed to eat and just plan ahead for things I can plan ahead for! It's okay to eat something different from everyone I'm loosing weight and I'm doing what's best for me!!!

I'm wondering if I'll always plan all my meals... probably because I enjoy only going grocery shopping once a week and it helps to plan it out... this is a lifestyle change, which means this is the way I'll always eat... if something like a BBQ happens again unplanned, take what I planned to eat and eat that! Plan for a turkey dog, or salmon burger next week!!! It's okay to miss out on eating that item today I can have it next week!!!

Oh and on a good note, I had a little bit of a revelation today! I realized I don't have to spend 60 straight minutes working out each day! I only need to burn a certain amount of calories a day and that can be attained by 15 minute workout "sessions" four times a day!!! I only need to burn the calories, not all at once.

So I'm only going to eat what I've planned (plan what I want next week), and I can exercise any time of the day with what I have with me just do it for 15 minutes.

emoticon emoticon emoticonBTW happy late 4th of July!!! emoticon emoticon emoticon

    So far I haven't exercised more than 30 minutes in a day and it seems to be doing the trick! I think your 15 minute bursts will work for you as well.

    Sounds like you're doing a great job. But you don't have to take your own food to a bbq. You know what's likely to be more healthy (grilled chicken, salads, corn on the cob, etc). Steer clear of oversized burgers, pasta salad and potato salad. You can work within the plan without taking your own food. BUT if taking your own food works for you then by all means take your own food.

    I eat unplanned meals all the time! It's a lifestyle, and life means we don't eat at home every night. The trick is, it's about being disciplined within the unplan. Example: You can absolutely have a burger; just have it protein style, or eat it on only the bottom bun, and load it with tomatoes and lettuce. Or opt for grilled chicken. Know the calorie counts for typical BBQ sides, and which ones are better for you...then take small servings, and drink lots of water the whole time you're there having fun. emoticon

    Great job. I too do workouts for about 15 min a piece, it gives me a burst of energy, burns those calories and doesn't make me feel like I had to set aside an hour, which seems so hard at times.
Good luck and keep it up.
