I really need to get back on track!

Tuesday, November 01, 2011

Sooo, as of June I had lost 100lbs. June marked the completion of a full year of change. I kept going and dropped a few more pounds, fitness and eating were going well. And then, I broke a toe, even that didn't slow me down. I kept up with running, and my routines but a few weeks later my foot was in so much pain I could barely walk.
That was mid August. Here I sit, my foot is repaired but I haven't made it back to the same level of fitness and I've gained 15lbs. I never ever felt this discouraged during my original journey. For some reason dropping 15lbs I had alreadey dropped as really depressed me. So, tomorrow, I am kicking it back up a notch.

    Small steps...You WILL get back on track and that 15lbs will be gone before you know it. I'm in a similar situation but determined to not give in...Make sure you give yourself the credit you're due.

Woohoo! Movement again!

Sunday, April 17, 2011

So, last week I wrote about being sort of stuck. This week I tried really hard to track and to up my exertion while exercising. I ran 5-7k every other day and hit the gym every day almost.
Well, that plus the lack of hormonal bloating pushed me to a 4lb loss! It is always amazing to me that I can chart a trend in my loss based on a certain cycle! Just a few more pounds and I will be at the top of my healthy weight!

    Congratulations on your loss after all your hard work-can't beat tracking your food and increasing your exercise. Won't be long before you reach your goal-you'll have to think of another reward for continuing until you make it . You've done so well to get this far. Thanks for passing by my blog :)

10 months in at Sparkpeople

Sunday, April 10, 2011

I know I have made some very big accomplishments but staring at the ounces I have lost over the last couple of weeks has me a little annoyed.
You see, just ounces are actually all I should have lost. I have been slack about tracking, I missed a couple of days at the gym and perhaps I indulged in a few too many foods from the "other" category.
My unofficial goal was to hit 100lbs lost by the end of my first year at Sparkpeople. I might not make it. I know the lack of movement this week will spur me back into my good habits!
Have a great week everyone!

I love Spring!

Sunday, March 20, 2011

I feel so alive! I managed to get a bit of biking in last week. It was a bit cool and a bit windy but so wonderful to exercise outside!
I am approaching 85lbs lost and it has me hopeful that one day I may actually be in the "healthy weight" category!

I think I need to eat more.....

Saturday, March 05, 2011

I can't figure out how to make my spark profile recalculate my caloric needs. I know how to change the number of calories to burn etc. It has occurred to me that my second job is very active. I am a night time stock person so I am constantly on the go. I am lifting boxes (lots of boxes!), bending, climbing, twisting.....and starving!
I work two jobs (about 72 hours a week) which sometimes means I work up to 20 hours/day between the two. It is a temporary solution to a problem, at this point I need to work this much. I always manage at least 1 hour of exercise/day in addition to all of the work hours. My primary job has me on my feet all day. It is not really strenuous but I am on my feet and moving the whole time.
I feel like I should be eating more, I am hungry often. Weeks when I have gone above my ranges I have lost the most weight......
I just can't figure out how to make Spark work for me under these circumstances. Any suggestions?
