Happy Thanksgiving!

Thursday, November 27, 2008

Today I am very thankful to be spending the holiday with my family. I am still recovering from bronchitis and a sinus infection, but I guess that I still have my health! The past few months haven't been the best for eating. I was keeping up with my workouts, but overindulging on "bad" foods. I have gained between 5-8 pounds (depending on the day) since the summer. I know that there are no excuses, but I blame it on being sick and using food as a comfort. I have pretty much been fighting some sort of cold or whatever since the middle of September. Now with the holidays and not being able to do my workouts, I'm starting to feel like I've "fallen off the wagon". At least I was doing my workouts to sort of counterbalance the indulgence foods. It has now been 9 days since I did a partial workout and I'm feeling flabby and uncomfortable. I've been working so hard, so I'm not going to let this little setback ruin everything. I just want to be over this bronchial infection and coughing. Happy Thanksgiving everyone!! Wish me luck to get back on track!!


Fresh restart!!

Monday, September 01, 2008

Okay, August was not a great month for me. I ended up gaining back 2.2 pounds and 4 inches (mostly around my waist). I was eating horribly, but I think that I started slipping back into larger portions and second helpings. Of course, not to mention ice cream and chocolate. I still did my workouts, but I've been mixing them up and not doing my Turbo Jam as much. I've been burning the calories, but TJ gives me more ab work while doing the cardio. This month is a renewal time, so I'm bumping up the Turbo Jam and focusing on getting my waist back into shape! I've come this far, so I'm not going to let this little backslide throw me off track. I'm going to pick myself up and Jam!!

    I just heard this on a Jillian Michaels's podcast: " I f you aren't failing, you're not living and you're not trying. Failure is the only way to learn and the only way to grow". Now I am not saying that you failed but many of us, myself included, see slip ups as failures. I had never thought of my so called "failures" this way but it makes so much sense. It sounds like you are learing from your bad month and taking the proper steps to get back on track. Good for you and good luck!

Baby Weight Gone!!!

Thursday, July 17, 2008

Okay, so things are going so well, it finally dawned on me that all of the weight I gained over my two pregnancies is gone!! I am still not completely sure why this time has been different, but I'm guessing that the combination of healthy eating and exercise is obviously doing the job. I have tried to lose weight so many times, and this time even seems different. In the past, I would start a workout regimen, but then something would come up and I would end up dropping it even though I was still eating well. I would end up reverting to my old ways and would gain all the weight back. This time, I found a schedule (getting up before my boys) and have stuck with it for over a year now. It's like second nature and when I have had to miss a workout, I don't feel like I have a good day. For those still trying to find your success, think about that. I'm basking in the fact that I can fit into a size 8/10 (I know that size doesn't matter) which I could barely do before I had my boys. I feel great and I'm motivating others around me.

    so i know this blog is back from july... so sorry i'm tardy ;0) ...

anyhoo.... congrats on your size 8/10.... i know size doesn't matter... but the size of each person does matter to each personally internally.... not that were are a better or worse person depending on our size or scale number.... but it matters to how healthy we feel.... so your "number" is an important number for you (and me eventually i hope).... good job on your success.... i hope you will blog again soon.... to let us know how you are doing...

Plateau busted!

Sunday, March 02, 2008

Well, I finally busted through my plateau. I had been stuck for about 2 months. I purchased a heart rate monitor and changed up my workout routine and really kept track of what I ate (measured, didn't guesstimate) and I lost 7.2 pounds in the month of February. From about November through January I was gaining and losing the same 3-5 pounds. Hopefully, this downward trend will continue. I know that I can do this. It is a lifestyle change, not a diet!


Tuesday 1/15

Tuesday, January 15, 2008

Today was an okay day. I did my Turbo Jam: Total Body Blast workout this morning. I was feeling a little down this afternoon, so I did some emotional eating (bad, bad, bad) of some chocolate chips. I don't know what I can do to stop the emotional eating. I try to keep my mind on something else, but sometimes all I can think about is eating something. I have succeeded in dropping my Diet Dew drinking habit. I have now been pop-free for a week and a half. Tomorrow will be a better day.
