Right Back Where I Started From

Sunday, June 23, 2013

How did I get back here. I know I packed back on the pounds over the last two years. Stepped on the scale tonight for the first time in a year and what does it say? 192 lbs. The highest I have ever been is 193 lbs. Really? Somehow and someway I will have to take these lbs. off without any extra funds to do so. I am determined and it will happen. emoticon

    We have all been there, regaining weight we were sure we were "rid of". But I still tell you that you never know when this attempt will be your LAST attempt. You can do this, just keep your eye on the prize and remember you are in this for the long haul! emoticon

    They come on a lot faster than off, huh? You can do it. One day at a time, one good choice at a time

Day 9

Tuesday, October 04, 2011

I got my 5.6 miles in yesterday as well as today and my lower body is so sore. I woke up this morning barely walking but I made sure I got out there and walked those miles anyway. My body has to get back used to it and the only way that will happen is if I walk through the pain. Towards the end of the first mile I felt no pain. Once I completed all miles, I did my cool down and got in the car and drove home. When I got home and opened the car door to get out, my legs would not move...lol. I was in complete pain. I have not a clue where it came from. It took me 3 mins. just to get out of the car. I have been limping ever since. I hate to sit down because it's so hard to get back up. The pain is worse today than yesterday. I will do some stretching later on tonight before bed, so hopefully that will help me for tomorrow. My eating could be better than what it is but I'm still doing better than before. I have been getting all my water in so I'm happy about that. This is just the beginning. emoticon

    Ok, so reading your blog has inspired me to walk, rather than drive, to the nursing home this afternoon. Thank you for some much needed motivation!

Day 7

Sunday, October 02, 2011

I have thoroughly enjoyed my weekend. I indulged in a bunch of goodies but I did not over do it. I didn't allow myself to feel guilty about any of it either. I did my weekly weigh in this morning and I am pleased that I lost 4lbs. emoticon I won't let this go to my head because I know this is nothing but water weight but it still feels good to know that I'm on the losing side. This week is very imperative to get all exercise in. That is my goal for this week. Cardio emoticon emoticon and strength training emoticon emoticon HERE I COME!!!


Day 4

Friday, September 30, 2011

Right off the bat this was another day of no exercise. There really wasn't enough time in the day today. My first meal of the day consisted of an apple, orange, and nectarine. I didn't get a chance to eat that until after 11 am. My late lunch was after 3 pm and that was half of a smothered chicken breast and medium potato. Just 30 mins. ago I had my dinner which was a bowl of fruit loops. I have one more serving of water that I need to get in. I hate to do it because I will be up all night going to the bathroom and it's already late. I did get my brand new walking/running shoes today so now I have the proper support. The start of the weekend is tomorrow and I'm nervous about that. I have plans this weekend and it does entail a few cocktails. I'm not concerned about the drinks because I only have a few and I'm fine. Also, I'm not into mixed drinks or wine, so when I do drink, it's a few bottles of beer. The problem is after having those beers I get hungry and I ALWAYS crave mexican food. I'm talking carne asada, guacamole, cheese, sour cream, salsa...yum,yum,yum. This shall be interesting. emoticon

    Don't get down on yourself. I have recently had trouble completing my workout routine as well. I like to think of the little accomplishments I complete though. For example, yesterday I didn't drink enough water BUT I drank more than I usually do. Every step is an improvement! Congrats on your new shoes! That always makes working out easier for me because I know I have the support I need to not be as sore. Good luck on your weekend! emoticon

Day 3

Wednesday, September 28, 2011

Not one of my best days...but not one of my worst either. Kind of a backwards day for me. For breakfast I ate my dinner because I woke up late and dinner was already prepared from the day before. By late afternoon I was feeling really agitated and started to tell myself that this was hopeless and to go to the burger stand and get their double cheeseburger combo with a chocolate shake. I contemplated this for a good 1/2 hr until the feeling eventually subsided and I got to thinking of how miserable I always feel after eating that way. Always ridiculously stuffed and nauseated. I eventually ate a chicken ceasar salad without the dressing and cheese plus tomatoes. For dinner I ate a bowl of captain crunch berries. Not the smartest move to make but I wanted something sweet. I didn't walk at all today which has me bummed but I will make that up tomorrow. I did have 16 oz. of the lemon lime soda this morning. I did get all my water servings in but it just felt forced. I just feel like today I didn't do a good job. emoticon

    Sounds to me like you had a great day, compared with what you would have eaten and possibly drunk in your pre-Spark life! You resisted the urge to go get that double cheeseburger combo and chocolate shake, and I know how hard that must have been. That is one big victory in my eyes. Today I couldn't even look at a glass of water without thinking 'yuk' so I'm having a bit of a down on myself day too after drinking so much water yesterday and enjoying every drop of it.
I read somewhere earlier today that it takes 3 weeks to break an old habit and replace it with a new one, so only another 2 and a bit weeks and we will hopefully be over the worst of the lifestyle adjustments by then.
Lea. emoticon
