Whatever you may want to call it. I'm so rarely on here, however since January I've lost 9 lbs. Slow but surely, I am losing weight.

Yesterday, I had my hair cut, and today I used my gift certificate for a massage today. Weighed myself. It's my day off, so I'm taking care of me. It's my ME DAY!

Hello April

Tuesday, April 05, 2011

So April is starting off alright. Being without a car has been a drag and today, my boyfriend and I bought a car. I'm pleased with it. I'm not use to a car that is so quiet. lol few dings and some rust but all in all it appears to be in good shape. I should get a few good years out of it. Not much else to say on it at the moment , or on April. Just wanted to share the good news.

I'm also going to be looking into a bike rack for it, so I can take my bike out with friends.


Good Bye March

Thursday, March 31, 2011

March pretty much sucked for me. I stayed my weight which is fine by me, because at least I didn't gain. Tomorrow is April, so I'm setting myself up to win. I'm changing goals on spark people, and I'm going to figure out something, because something has to be done.

I want to see results, and I'm realistic about how to do it. I am not out to lose 25lbs in the first few weeks, I'm out to lose that 25lbs in a healthy time and by doing it right. I'm returning to drinking water on a regular basis and no more donuts at work when I work on weekends. (small indulgence I've allowed myself because I work all day and sometimes chocolate donuts sound so good. (I've only done it 2x)

I'm going to figure out my sleeping situation because now I'm starting work 2-3x a week even earlier. 4:30am is going to suck, but I have a job and I get hours.

Here is a picture of me, from this past Saturday all decked out for the 80's.


I need to step it up

Wednesday, March 16, 2011

I'm in a slump. I get motivated for a couple of days then it dies.
I do what I can eating wise, but extra exercise isn't something happening. Unless I go rollerskating. I've considered getting the wii zumba thinking that will get me going, but I can't justify getting it at the moment and D mentioned something that would be annoying to him. (the music etc... ) Sadly my day's off seem to be his days off and so exercising is difficult with him home. Mostly because I'm embarrassed and it would be a bother to him. We live in a small apartment and he is ALWAYS there. I use to not be embarrassed, but when I start exercising, he tends to get up and do things and that gets in the way of me moving because I have to stop or shorten my movements because now he is getting up and doing something.

I'm considering we start getting our own groceries because other than the greek yogurt in the house, there isn't too much healthy food for me to just eat. We have a lot of food I'd eat if I wasn't watching what I'm eating. I can't trust him with mac and cheese after I found out he started putting half and half in it. No wonder why on paper it always looked like I should be dropping but I've been sabataosed. Probably not on purpose but it still is hard. I honestly expected to have lose more then I have by now. Now I have to step it up and start doing my own food however it's not like we can afford it, the question is do I have a choice? I'm not so sure anymore.

I no longer drink pepsi, I can avoid it with ease even though I've had like 4 cans in the past 2.5 months which is pretty good. I have been ok with bringing my own lunch to work, but lately that even been slacking because I'm too tired to make a lunch the night before and in the morning I'm running out the door so I grab subway for lunch. At least I'm avoiding eating at work with their food. I try and drink water at work, but sometimes a diet coke gets put in my cup.

I'm just getting over being sick with another cold but now I feel I can function more. D is coughing today it's a nasty cycle that doesn't seem to end.

Rollerskating at the dome ends soon, I hope to get there at least 1 more time before the season ends. I'm suppose to be walking in the St. Patrick's Day parade tomorrow evening in Minneapolis for the North Star Roller Girls

    Good luck with this. I am sure once the good weather gets here you will be more likely to go outside to exercise. Please don't let anyone make you feel embarrassed to be working toward a healthier you. You need to be the best that you can be and you should be able to count on support from those around you. Believe in yourself and keep moving forward.

  Please be careful. You really need a support network and it doesnt look like you are getting it. He shouldnt be fussing about you working out (music etc) and sneaking stuff in your food if he cares about your health. Hang in there and we are here for you.

What is up this year? Usually I'll get a cold around this time once a year. (not including allergies) However this year, and ever since I've been back working, I've been sick 3 times. I've only been back working since January 26. Each time the last 2 times I've had to call in sick 1 or 2 of those times. Now I have a bad cold. It started with a migraine, and a cough that was dry and in my throat. It then developed into my chest and continued to make my throat raw with every cough I had, which could last from 30 seconds to 3 minutes long. It then worked it's way up to my head, and my nose is now runny, and congested at the same time. My throat isn't as sore but I'm still coughing way to much for my own taste. Today is my day off, and I'm stuck at home sick after working the last 3 days sick. I have to work at 5am tomorrow which is going to be another long day ahead of me. I work in the food service and talking to people and getting their food ready isn't exactly easy when you have to cough and you're holding it in all the time. I've been lucky though I've been on the register so contact with food has been limited. ( we wear gloves when we prepare food) I don't want to work when I'm sick like this but I can't afford to take more time off. I'm also just tired of being sick. Since I've already been sick more times this year then I have been in the past 5 years maybe longer.

With the coughing fits, it's hard to even exercise, if I attempt to do too much which is just walking to the next room, I'm constantly coughing. I'm losing weight but not at a rate I'd like. It's much slower it's more like a pound every 2-3 weeks.
