Staying off the scale

Tuesday, October 22, 2013

It's always hard for me to stay off the scale....not sure why and usually it helps me to see me weight but, right now it is not....so I'm making a goal to see how long I can stay off of it. 7 days is my goal! Sunday I weighed in at 178.2 .....I'm hoping if I can stay off until next Tuesday I will see a dramatic loss.

Here it goes emoticon

    I go back and forth on this issue all the time. Sometimes you just need a break from The constant stress of the scale.

    I need my scale, otherwise how will I know if what I am doing is working.
If it helps you to stay off, go for it.

I have adjusted with the seasons all ready!

Tuesday, October 15, 2013

I posted my blog..........and then 3 minutes later Fruitful and my Husband literally minutes apart sent me the same text "Are you out walking / jogging?" Nags!!! emoticon

So I got off my butt and went for my jog!

While jogging I think I had a memory of last Fall / Winter....if I remember right I used to get up and do 30 something minutes on my treadmill (until my treadmill over heated) and then if I wasn't being a big baby about the cold I would then walk outside. If the weather was bad or I had too much to do I would then do what I needed and then if I felt like it was nice outside or if I needed to d-stress or whatever other reason I would then take a walk or two or three in whatever time frames I had at that moment.....Yes, yes I believe this is how I did it....that way if I never walked outside that day at least I got my 30 something minutes first thing in the morning! And there's always another 30 something minutes in the evening if needed right? emoticon

Adjusting with the seasons

Tuesday, October 15, 2013

I'm finding it hard to adjust with the seasons......I know I walked outside all Winter long and Spring last year but, I cant remember my schedule...all I know is this Summer I had to be up and walking by 6 am otherwise it got to hot for me to walk until late in the evening. So that is what I am used to doing getting out of bed and getting a good portion of my steps out of the way first thing...it is now 11:30am and it's not going to get much warmer then the 46 degrees it is now so I should head out but, I find myself wanting to just take a nap! I know if I just get off my butt I will feel GREAT but, I'm worried about how I'm going to talk myself into walking day after day.....It's silly thought because I remember when Summer hit I was disappointed that I couldn't just walk when I felt like it because it was too Hot....I need to move to San Diego so I can walk anytime of the day!

Second issue I'm having is that I have started enjoying experimenting with cooking especially during the Winter months and I find myself getting frustrated with logging new recipes...I just don't want to log.....some might say then don't but, I have that all or nothing mentality if I don't log everything I will eat like crap and too much all day.....so I personally have too which is keeping me from making new yummy things emoticon .......

Well I guess the answer is stop being lazy ...go for a jog and come back and log my new recipe!

Once I figure it out I need to blog about it so that next October it isn't so traumatic! emoticon

    The cold weather does make it super hard. You could always try to find an indoor track, or get in some treadmill time. It's not as enjoyable as outside but it gets the job done.

    I hope you're out walking/jogging. I'm tempted to call you and make sure that you are! You can do this! You can still do your morning workouts in the cold, can't you? Do I need to buy you a new set of headlights???

    I understand your frustration! I'm a winter person myself -- I can barely drag myself out of doors in hot Georgia summers.

I do agree that you should log all recipes. It's a great benefit to know what's in your dishes and how the calories / carbs / fats / proteins add up.

Keep up the good work! I'm cheering you on! emoticon

Spark Pedometer

Tuesday, October 15, 2013

I am so glad that Spark came out with there own Pedometer! emoticon
I currently own a Fitbit One and have had NO problems with it....mine will be 1 year old on November 25th and although I would like it to last FOREVER I know someday I will need a replacement (I have not missed 1 day wearing my fitbit).

I'm hoping by the time I need to replace it Spark people will have come out with a Pedometer that plugs in to recharge...I'm just not feeling the whole replaceable watch battery thing.....I know that would make it more expensive but, I'm good with that!

    I looks to me like you have to go on-line to see your progress.

    It isn't clear to me whether the Spark pedometer has a read-out or you have to go on line to see your statistics. I love being able to check to see how I am doing as a motivator.

Do you have the SP app? I use that every day, its hard for me to find time to get on the computer, but I always have my phone. I downloaded it when it was free but then had to have my phone wiped and now its $3.99, which honestly is expensive for an app! But I think it was worth it, I use it daily!
