Day before big weigh in............

Sunday, February 01, 2009

Today is the day before my monthly weigh in the one that I take a new pic for.
I wont be down much if any however I am going to be happy to report that I did not gain anything this month for the first time in almost a year.

To get ready for my weigh in I am going to eat low sodium today do my 5k this morning and then a p.m. workout before I go to bed.

5K 55:31 That's 3 minutes and 42 seconds faster then 1 month ago.

I'll be back in the morning with my result.

Good Luck everyone and keep Sparking

P.S. I cant believe I did this but, at the beginning of January I started the "Official Sparkpeople new you Boot camp & contest! Anyways you were supposed to log at least 500 minutes of Cardio for the month of January. I was just adding mine up and I did 483???? Does today count emoticon

I'm still here!

Saturday, January 31, 2009

So Thursday was a weird day for me. I was still motivated but, felt super hungry. I decided to eat on the high end of my calories and the minute I did that I suddenly started eating things I should not have been. Normally I would beat myself up for this and binge eat the whole next week destroying any progress that I had made but, I'm here to say I'm really proud of myself. I did not exercise that night but, the next morning (Friday) I got up and did the workout that I should have done on Thursday and then I logged all my food for Friday and stuck too it! It is now Saturday and I am ready to do my workout. Tonight I am going to do a 40min. last minute workout and then in the morning I will do a 5K my weigh in is on Monday and If I stick to this plan I should see some results for my January Weigh in / Photo on Monday.

Wish me Luck emoticon

    I can hear the pride in your message and you should be proud. It would have been the easy way to just go on an all out food frenzy. But you maintained control after a small episode, and got right back to it. That's what this journey is all about, forgive yourself and move on. I think your doing great, just keep going one day at a time, that's all we can do. emoticon

We have heat! emoticon It really makes you appreciate the things you take for granted.

I made it through Day #4 I drank my water, did my exercise and almost stayed in my calorie range. I'm not upset with myself though because over all for the week I am still doing GREAT. Also I have eaten in my lower range some days so big picture I'm just fine. I did however track everything that I ate so it is all accounted for.

I wish Spark had a feature where you could get info the whole week at the end of the week instead of just daily. Well maybe they will some day?

Day #5 here I come emoticon

Day #3

Wednesday, January 28, 2009

Woo Hoo .. I have made it through 3 days! emoticon Good food choices plenty of water. And today I plan to get in some exercise.

My heater is still broken and it is 52 degrees in my house this morning. So I guess running on the treadmill will get me warm and then off to a warm shower. Now if i could just talk myself into changing into my workout clothes. emoticon

Here's to hoping today will be a less stressful day. emoticon And if not I hope I cant at least make it through with out any self medicating.

I think I'm being tested!

Tuesday, January 27, 2009

Ok so I made it through the day yesterday. I drank all my water and stayed within my calories. I did not exercise but, I never planned too. I have decided to take Mondays, Tuesdays and Fridays off until I get my groove back.

Anyways today has started off stressful I'm trying really hard not to turn to food but, the alternative would be to go hide in my bed all day. Unfortunately I have too much to do to hide in my bed so I am having to put forth a really big effort to avoid food.

I woke up this morning to a broken heater it is 55 degrees in my house emoticon
