boo ha ha on that scale anyways

Monday, August 18, 2014

Even though the scale says I gained a pound-pound and a half Im not gonna stress it, my clothes feel looser than ever. My t-shirts are starting to not gather at my hips but keep on going.

I know that when I came home from work today I walked a mile on my treadmill, granted a long boring mile but it was still a mile, in 25 minutes. My endurance is growing, I am getting stronger. Last night I walked a mile and a half at one time, to reach my 10,000 steps a day, today I have in almost 15,000. I might get on the treadmill yet again...who knows? :)

I want to see 312 or lower by Friday but I am realistic enough to know what I want and what I get are 2 different things. What I do know is this...if I dont work for it I wont get it. SO, how bad do I want it?

Bad enough to get on the treadmill again.

    Just remember the scale is just one tool! Sounds as though you are loosing inches and gaining muscle. (I know it's frustrating to see gain on the scale believe me)!
So congrats!!!

Rough waters

Sunday, August 17, 2014

I knew when I got out of bed today it wasn't going to be pretty. For one thing, I got up about 8. That's late for me. For another, my husband was up first and messing in the computer/exercise room so I just went right for the shower as I knew he wanted to go look at phones today.

So no exercise this morning, and then I made him stop at the Dollar store and I went in to get a Mountain Dew. I havent had one in weeks. I have had tea and diet soda, very rarely. I just dont know what came over me.

Well I bought potato chips too. UGGG Confession time. We had lunch at Wendy's where I had a Jr cheeseburger deluxe, chicken nuggets and half a large Frosty. After Breakfast, Lunch and a none existent dinner I am about 300 calories over for the day. We are talking in the 2000 range.

We went and got new phones. This is the first time I have had a smart phone believe it or not. The APPS OMG! lol I am in overload. I already have fitbit and sparkpeople loaded. It also has a heart rate monitor, which I then had to try out. Which lead to walking over 2.5 miles on the treadmill and 35 minutes on the bike. I am about 500 steps away from my 10,000 step/day goal. It's been tough sailing today let me tell ya.

I did not even weigh myself this morning that's how off I am today. Back to work tomorrow and more structured days all next week.

500 more steps...499...498 Got to go.

    I agree with the others! A day off plan once in awhile is called REAL LIFE! You can do all sorts of things to offset some of the extra calories throughout the week if you are disturbed by the indulgence...OR NOT! Have a wonderful day! emoticon emoticon

Friday, but first day of a new week.

Friday, August 15, 2014

Yesterday I ended up having a pretty high calorie day for me. About 1800-2000 all told. Needless to day I did not hit 314, so I have to be content with today's 315. Today is weigh in day.

Today is the first day to try again. I have tried to remain active all morning and push myself. I have a fit bit zip that counts my steps. I think I was becoming falsely secure in steps = calorie burn. Not so much. This morning I amped it up. I did my own little circuit training. Bike, treadmill, stairs, kettlebell, jog, bike, and some weird modified jumping jack thingies. lol

I have a weird work schedule tonight, 4pm-9pm. Yay Friday night. Im off all weekend though. I hope to get in a little crafting/picking this weekend. Oh yeah, and burning this body fat DOWN! :)

Have a fantastic weekend.

    I agree with Severina, I don't think you went crazy on the calories. And please try to remember that the scale is just one tool in your weight loss journey. (easier said then done I know believe me. )

I hope you have a fabulous weekend!

    Hey, I don't think you went too overboard with the calories, and your fitness looks great! I wish I could get revved up to move like that! I am, however, picking up a bike this evening, so I'll be able to ride bikes with my boyfriend. Keep up the good work, doll!

Letting my dinner settle before once again jumping on the treadmill. Not a great dinner choice-wise but not the potato chips I really wanted either.

Drove home from work hungry. Never got a lunch today. They can work you up to 6 hours and not give you a lunch, today I was scheduled 5 hours 45 mins. Totally sucks for weight loss. Not very many good things left to eat in the hous eas it is the day before pay day. Im sure some of you know how that is.

Trying to stick to around 15-1600 calories to see what happens.

Really nothing new, just had not brought my thoughts together for a few days so I thought Id check in.

Anyone know when Biggest Loser starts?

    If you are talking about the TV show, September 11.

If you are talking about the SP team, signups start 8/20 and the round starts 9/17.

Just wondering if you can have a healthy snack during those 6 hours. That's a long time to go without eating.
