Today was my 5th gym visit

Thursday, June 27, 2013

I joined a gym after my birthday. I turned 44, I have gained about 14 lbs since October. I was doing so well and I am determined to get back to that place and then beyond.
Today was the first time I was able to pass 15 minutes on the elliptical and I made it to 20 minutes. I did another 20 minutes of weight lifting and then finished with 20 minutes of stationary biking. I did a full hour, I am proud.
My husband and I have made a pact to work out every day that I work, and to have a real day off on the two days a week that I do not work.

I have been exercising and eating well

Saturday, May 25, 2013

I just havent been posting here as much. My job really cracked down on our computer usage so I havent been posting here as much. I work nights (10pm to 6am) and used to do a lot of my blogging and tracking from my desk because, well, thats my daytime. So anywho, what I did was:
I remembered a time when I was doing things that work for me that dont involve the computer. I was in WW for a time and was doing very very well, What worked for me then was tracking on paper everything related to my weight loss journey, which in fact, is EVERYTHING. Food, movement, emotions, everything. So I made a journal for myself with space to write all those things, and I printed out some fun inspirational meme thingys. Ive been putting things in my book and its working for me.
My arms and core are super sore because I went back to the daily routine I was on before I decided that I needed to mix things up. I am very good at routine and maybe after a long while I will need to mix things up and do muscle confusion but for now, I do my squats, lifts, planks, etc in the same order at the same time of day. Thats what works for me.

Day 14- sore but HAPPY

Monday, May 06, 2013

Just came back from a vacation to San Diego where I lived for about 20 years. I left there about 3 years ago and have only seen my best girlfriend once during that time. We were originally going to attend a steampunk convention but those plans fell through. My husband and I already had a hotel room booked and paid for so we decided to go down anyway.
It was fantastic!!!!
I spent 2 days with my best friend just hanging out and blowing bubbles. She kept commenting that I dont look my weight which I received with mixed emotions. I was glad because I DO carry the weight proportionately BUT...I dont want to become complacent in this journey. To be TOTALLY honest a big part of this undertaking is for vanity. I dont like the way I look when Im overweight. I dont like not being able to shop anywhere I want or to fit into cute clothes.
I was able to stick to my ten minutes a day of exercise. We went for a brisk walk on the beach and I swam some laps in the hotel pool.So that was an accomplishment. The eating part went totally out the window, but at this stage in my journey my movement is more important than my eating habits. I want to be so used to moving that it feels weird when I DONT exercise. In three days away I ate two very bad, very large meals. I wish I felt more disappointing in myself about that.

    There is nothin wrong with vanity.Vanity will motivate you to do things for yourself for a totally and great reason. There is a little vanity in all of us. You were having a good time with friends,so live a little,then get back to the mission.The reason you are not disappointed in yourself is that you did nothing wrong. There is nothing wrong with having fun. Now it is time to get back to it.
