What a great vacation!!!

Tuesday, January 15, 2013

First off I gained 3.8 pounds on vacation but considering I was on a cruise and in the car for 20+ hours over 9 days Iím not in the least bit upset about it because I had a blast.

I immediately got back on track yesterday by wearing my FitBit even though I got sub 3,000 step in yesterday because I was chained to my desk at work BUT I tracked all my food, stayed within my calorie goal and drank all my water (in the form of tea) so I think Iím back to a good start.

Last night my wife and I headed out to our local Aldi store and loaded up on fruits and veggies. Iím really looking forward to getting back to cooking #1 because I miss it and #2 because I can control what goes into my food.

WellÖ. I have officially lost 7.6 pounds from 12/26/11-12/25/12 - how not awesome is thatÖ but hey at least I didn't gain those 7.6 pounds or I'd be really miserable and in a larger size for sure.

Time to get my head back on straight and stop farting around -- seems like I say that a lot doesn't it? Well I guess itís good that I don't just totally give up!!!

My biggest initial challenge of starting completely over is we are going on a cruise Jan 6-Jan 13. So traveling Jan 4th & 5th will be an eating nightmare BUT I know I can make smarter choices if I put myself up to it. I considered waiting until we got back to start my new journey but really whatís the point in waiting Ė thereís no day like the present eh? If I can at least maintain through the cruise Iíll be pretty happy.

My next goal is losing at least SOME weight before my birthday on March 2nd which is basically 10 weeks from now. So if I can lose 15 pounds between now and my birthday then Iíll consider myself on track to hitting some kind of descent goal for this year.

I guess time will tellÖ.

  You can do it. Starting now is the secret. Remember you are doing it for yourself and you are worth it.

    That is the wonderful thing...tomorrow is a fresh new day! And we gain strength and move forward by getting up each time we fall. And we all do it - we all make mistakes, have bad, even horrible days. We all fall. Congrats for posting and for looking for a new day to do well.

I'm still trucking along

Friday, December 14, 2012

I took a much needed day off from the gym yesterday and instead swept and mopped my entire house along with running up and down the basement stairs putting things away that have been sitting out for much longer than necessary ONLY because I didn°¶t want to run up and down those damned stairs. So I still accomplished getting 10,000+ steps in yesterday which is all I°¶m really striving for emoticon

Last week was my first week using the FitBit and I was really surprised on how much this little tiny souped up pedometer really motivates me to get my steps in. I move a LOT more. I started striving for 10,000+ steps per day this Monday 12/10 and so far so good. I did come up short a couple days but I did more strength training than cardio those days so I°¶m not disappointed in my performance. I°¶m waiting for breakfast to digest a bit before I head up to the gym and get in my 45 minutes for the day.

Yesterday I also took a day off from tracking my food because sometime a girl just needs a break. I still think I made pretty good choices even while out at The Melting Pot for dinner last night °V again pretty happy with myself. I°¶m back to tracking today and feeling pretty good about it all.

Well off to change clothes and get ready for the gym then I°¶ll come back and get all my spark points logged in emoticon

    Good for you taking a day off. I do that every now and than. And you're right, we do just need a day off from calorie counting and racking up fitness minutes. Good job on using your Fitbit. I've thought about getting one, but I'm on the fence about it.

I'm on a roll... for now?

Tuesday, December 11, 2012

I know I shouldnít be second guessing myself already but I am. On Day 2 after my latest restart and Iím feeling really positive but skeptical.

Instead of just going to the gym and walking my 30 minutes and leaving without really working I climbed onto that devil machine which I believe most people know as the elliptical trainer and did 30 minutes burning 300 calories according to my heart rate monitor. Then after catching my breath I did 15ish minutes on the weight machines focusing my legs and booty Ďcause this babyís got back (and then some). Overall I burned 400 calories and I feel accomplished.

Food wise Iím doing well and am trying to just listen to my body and wait for it to tell me when itís hungry and not eating just because its 11:30. So far so good.

    Sounds like you're doing great! I don't think I can say I've really started my reboot yet. I'm not happy with all the choices I made today. But, tomorrow shall be DAY 1... I gotta get SERIOUSLY SERIOUS!!
