MIA and feeling bad about it.

Monday, June 18, 2007

I have been neglecting my dear spark page and I'm definitely noticing how lost I am without it! I haven't been keeping track of anything, nor have I really been sticking to my diet / excersise program over the past couple of weeks and I am super angry at myself for it. I haven't gained, but I haven't lost. I look at it like this: These 2 weeks I've been slacking off, I could have lost 4 pounds.

So, I'm back on the plan effective today! I have barely worked out at all and I hate that. Tae Kwon Do was going great, but I'm having issues finding a babysitter which has prevented me from going. Hopefully hubby gets this new job - he'll be back on days so that will enable me to live a normal life again. I'm praying for that! I miss my tkd class :(

Anyway, that's my mini update for now. I'm back in the sparkpeople state of mind... and it feels good!


Minus 27 pounds feels...

Thursday, May 31, 2007

AWESOME! I can't wait.. 3 more pounds and I'll be at my 2nd short term goal! Only 5 more pounds until I'm at my pre-pregnancy weight! Woohoo!

I promise I'll update more later, but for now, I must get ready for work!

Long time, no update.

Sorry for my slacker-ness. I have been really bad about updating. But I'm still sticking with my "program" and I'm doing really good. I'm officially 25 pounds down. I currently weigh 233 pounds. I have barely been exercising because I hurt my knee at Taekwondo, but my diet is coming along good.

I have no clue what's going on with my knee though. I hurt it tuesday kicking the punching bag. It cracked and then the next day I could barely put any pressure on it at all. It's progressively getting better but it def still hurts. I can't believe I haven't worked out since TUESDAY. That's crazy. But I'm okay with it.. I really have no choice but to be okay with it.

I don't really have too much to say right now. I'm going to measure in later today, so I'll update with my results after I do that.


Slow and steady.

I haven't been updating much. I should be better about it. I enjoy blogging I've just been preoccupied with life, I guess. I've been doing good. Keeping to my diet, excercising and just generally continuing to try and stay more active. I'm still doing my Taekwondo class, but it's killing my knees. My knees HURT. Yesterday I kicked the bag and felt my left knee crack and today I can barely bare any weight on my left knee. This concerns me. I love the class though. It's really fun. I'm just afraid that I'm going to get arthritis in my knees or something. Hopefully they will start feeling better as I lose more weight, because I can't help but to think that is the reason they hurt so bad.

I'm down to 236 as of today. By July 1st, I expect to be at 228. That gives me just about 5 weeks to accomplish those 8 pounds, which technically should be simple. I just don't know what's going on with my slow down in weight loss. It's stressing me out. I'm doing good, very few slip ups, and even when I do slip up, they aren't enough to cease weight loss. I exercise pretty much daily. But suddenly it seems as though my body doesn't want to let go of the pounds. I did so awesome the first few weeks which is what I think is making me upset. I guess I expected it to always be that easy. Guess not, huh?

I want to be at my goal weight by October 1st. Then I could make any modifications I need and keep going or if I'm happy with where I'm at, work on maintaining my weight and just toning. I think regardless of what weight I get down to, I will need to tone like mad. Particularly in my tummy and my thighs. We want to go on vacation in November sometime, which is why I would like to be at my goal by October.


Heat Wave

Monday, May 14, 2007

It's so freaking hot in my house. I don't know what the heck is wrong with our airconditioning but it refuses to work. I'm a spoiled brat when it comes to heat.. I hate it and I'm miserable!

Tae Kwon Do was good today. Not nearly as hard as last week. The master seemed very preoccupied tonight so we didn't really do too much of anything except practice our forms and some kicks. It was at a much more Rachel oriented pace tonight. But I have my form down pat already which is pretty cool. I practiced it twice and I'm good to go.

I ate good today, although I feel like I ate a lot. It's weird.. I've only ate 1100 calories and I feel like I went overboard. I ate so much freaking fiber today though.. 38 whopping grams of it. I got these really delicious Fiber One bars (oats and chocolate). A little high on the calorie side (140 calories) but really tasty and LOADED with fiber.. 9 grams to be exact. Add that to my Fiber One cereal and I'm pretty much at my daily value. Nice!

I was really hoping to be at my pre-pregnancy weight by the end of this month, but I'm doubting that's going to happen. I've been stuck at 239 for a week and it's bumming me out. I need to lose 14 more pounds to get there. It should in theory be easy but now that I'm at this stand still I'm thinking it may not be until about the beginning of July. So, my new short term goal is to get down to 225 by July 1st. Then I'll work on the remaining 25. After that, I'll reassess my ultimate goal. I'm thinking 175 will be my final goal, but we'll see. Really, I'm not as concerned about the number on the scale as I am about the pant size. I want to be in a size 14. A real size 14, not a plus size 14. Once I get there, I'll be good as gold :)
