Roller Coaster ride

Thursday, July 19, 2012

I hate roller coasters, literally and figuratively. I'm currently on the figurative roller coaster of weight loss. Early this year, I was doing great, that roller coaster was on the top and I was losing weight. When I was on top I stop drinking soda, and I lost 20 lbs. I then did a quick loop de loop and landed hard at the bottom. Once summer arrived and BBQ season hit, I went right back to eating to enjoy it and eat plenty of it.

I've decided that this has to stop. I'm on the way up on that roller coaster again, click click click.. It's a long way up but I'm going to make it back to that top and coast on down and off the roller coaster. I have no intentions on going down that roller coaster again. (realistically, I'm sure I'll have a few more ups and downs to come)

Since I hate roller coasters I hope to be off this one soon enough.

    The Roller Coaster seems to be a comon ride for everyone trying to lead a healthier life. I've lost the same weight, I can't even tell you how many times. I can tell from your blog that you have the determination to get off that ride soon. emoticon

28 day work out!

Wednesday, June 20, 2012

I'm at a standstill with my body. I'm stuck at the 20 lbs lost. I know 20 lbs that's good, but platueing is hard, and I am finding myself eating un healthy again.. Still no soda that has hit over 100 day's and I've lost count. I did have a can of Zevia but it has Stevia in it and not HFCS or aspertiene ( I can't spell) and it was the lemon lime so no carmel coloring. If I do choose to drink any soda I think it will be this brand only, and not like all the time. Anyway that is not my point here.

Back on track, I'm going to finally do the 28 day workout, modified from their plan to a little of mine, because I don't always have the time to work out especially when I work at 4:30am. So today I did a work out and I'm going to attempt another one tomorrow.

    Jillian Michaes says diet soda or any artificial sweetener other than those derived from the stevia plant are BAD for weight loss. You body has no idea what to do with the chemicals and it can cause you to hold on to or gain weit. Vitamin Water Zero is delicious, has many flavors and is sweetend with Truvia. Give it a try! emoticon

A beautiful day in my backyard.

Wednesday, June 06, 2012

Well, not exactly my backyard but close enough. D and I went with our friend Jamie to Theodore Wirth Park and walked around Wirth Lake, Eloise wildflower garden and bird sanctuary, we then of course while there walked around the Quaking bog. it was a great day, not exactly humid but warm, and we walked about 4 miles or so for 2 hours enjoying nature and loving the outdoors. We even got to see Minne the Lake Creature in her new summer home of Wirth Lake. Which was the motivation for me to get out and enjoy the outdoors.

Say WHAT!

Sunday, May 27, 2012

I have no idea how this happened. I weighed myself this morning, like I usually do one of the day's during the weekend. My Scale SAID 176. That is 8 lbs since the last time I weighed myself, (which was actually 2 wks ago) I haven't made it to the gym, I've been working and running around at work, that my steps are increased and I've been opening the store more often. Which means I'm at work at 4:30am. I weighed myself 4 times to make sure always the same number. The scale was in the same place, on the kitchen floor, and I was as usual not clothed. I'm going to take it, and just hope by next weekend, I don't jump way back up and am disappointed. I know my clothes are falling off of me, so I think the scale is pretty close to where I am. Also I think this weigh in just brought me down to just overweight and no longer obese. according to the bmi crap



Correction: I still need to lose 2lbs to change categories.

A Week of Indulgence

Sunday, May 13, 2012

The feeling of guilt is upon me. I had a week of vacation, and with that my healthy lifestyle took one too. I didn't mean for it to happen, it just did. I did get a lot of walking in, but I knew it wouldn't be enough. Now my vacation is over, I feel bloated, and gross and of course FAT!! I hate the FAT feeling, I know I did this to myself, I made the wrong choices, and now my consequences are here. I worked so hard, and I feel like it was thrown away.

I can make excuses,:
~We were at the cabin, I had to have s'mores. I should have just had 1 not the amount I had.
~I wanted icecream so I went and got a shake at Arby's What I should have done, was run to cub and find a healthy alternative.
~I wanted Chocolate, Should have just had a bite of chocolate not the whole bar or 2.
~It was my TOM.

I know how to do this the right way, but why did I choose the other way, and now I'm feeling like crap. I'm suppose to go to my boyfriends family's house for dinner tonight, but I'm not sure I'm up for it. I know we'll be having a lot of unhealthy food, (except the salad) and I need to get back and start eating better, and exercising more than just walking.

    You can go the dinner, just make good choices and watch portion size. If you have it in our mind you can do it.
Getting back in the swing of your normal life will help you get back on track.
