Weigh-in! 05/30/14

Saturday, May 31, 2014

Before I started school I weighed 142.8. While in school I slacked off. I didn't work out hardly at all. I got my bad eating habits back. SummerBreak hit and I am back making my body and my family my main focus! I have worked super hard and have made it back from 150 to 142! I am so excited! I plan of keeping up the hard work and making my goal by the time Braydon turns 2 or by the time school starts back up! Eating portion sized meals and often throughout the day has still been a bit of a struggle, but I have managed to stick to it and not beat myself up too much when I make mistakes. I have been running every once in a while in the mornings. It was a bit scarey at first. 1, I didn't think I could do it. 2, I fell while running one morning. It sounds silly and I never thought it would happen to me. I have seen articles about safety while running outside, but just passed them up. The road was all broken up and I wasn't paying good enough attention. The forward momentum made the injuries worse than had I just been walking. Needless to say I learned my lesson and am now sure to keep an eye on what I am doing and where I am running! It's nice to have a workout partner even though she is farther away than I would like. Having a partner really helps me push forward! I can't wait to see how far I can get this week! Good luck everyone! I wish you all well on your journey! emoticon emoticon

    Be careful, and make sure your shoes aren't the reason you fell! Reeboks first two levels cause people to twist their ankles. Plus Nike aren't made good, and can cause you to get bone spurs because of their poor construction internally. eva

Summer Break

Thursday, May 22, 2014

Summer break has started and I am so very glad it has! I had quit exercise and focusing entirely on school, the house, bills, appointments, and my family. School work took up my entire night every night (my husband had to let me sleep until 1 just to get a good 6-7 hours...I am determined to keep my 4.0) except Sundy. I could have and should have worked out then. I ended up gaining 9 lbs. It may not seem like much, but I could see the new weight gain as well as feel it. I felt disgusted with myself and hated school for getting in my way, but I realize it isn't my school work that got in the way it is myself. I could have worked out every Sunday. I could have watched what I ate better. I kept saying I was going to, but I didn't. It is my own fault. Now that Summer break is here I am back to my old self. I am in the swing of things and pushing myself to stay on track and meet my goal weight! I have lost my workout partner. My husband says the time I workout isn't working for him b/c he is tired from his job....legit so I'm fine with it. Night time is what works best for me so I am left to push myself and go the journey alone. So far so good, but I do miss having him work beside me. It always made me want to do better. Like I was competeing only it never mattered who did better because we were a team. Sometimes it seems hard to keep pushing myself alone, but for now my goal means too much for me to lose the progress that I have re-made for myself. No more set-backs. School starts back up in August. I still plan on making my goal by my son's second B-Day, but if I still have some to lose, then I at least want to be there by August classes! Wish me luck! emoticon emoticon

    I like a group workout but I also like workouts solo - I like my "me" time where I can just listen to my tunes and do my own thing at my own pace. It does help to have someone to be accountable to though....maybe you can make a check-mark on your main calendar for each workout so your hubby can see it and it can be a visual reminder to you to go do it. Anyway, good luck, I know you can do this. You are pulling a 4.0! That is freakin awesome! You got this.

Although my weigh in went well today (152.6) I feel like total crap. I have had a horrible week and was shocked that my weight changed at all. I am glad it was for the better and not worse though. My husband and I are not getting along. I took Braydon and stayed at my parents for a few days and was reluctant to come home. Things were said I'm not sure I can forgive or forget. I'm worried for myself and my son. Such an unhealthy relationship is not good for our health. None of ours. While I was away my husband did something drastic to himself and I don't think it was a great idea. I've learned from past experience all to well what will happen in the next few days, the next week. I haven't eaten breakfast the past few days so I'm sure my metabolism took a hit. My sleep has been horrible. Even though I went to bed early last night my quality of sleep was horrible. I woke up about 3:40AM and could not get myself back to sleep. I finally drifted off again around 7:30-8AM (hours of laying there tossing and turning). I'm just not in a good mood lately and at the moment I am just in a horrible place. I just want it all to get better....I'm so sick of feeling low and hurt, and looking for love where there is none. I just want to be happy. Happy with myself, my relationship, my life....I just want to be happy.

    Do your parents have any suggestions? My daughter runs into problems with her DH from time to time, and honestly, some of his habits would be difficult for anyone to tolerate. She calls and I try to advise her the best I can. DD and DSIL see a counselor and that seems to be helping pretty much. BTW, most married couples have problems at least occasionally. Best to you. I hope everything works out.

Weigh in 12-05-13

Friday, December 06, 2013

I'm late blogging about my weigh in due to internet issues (blah)! That's ok though I had a pretty good weigh in. I have seen a pattern so the loss wasn't expected. Normally I stay the same a week or two then lose about 2 lbs. I weighed in at 154.8! Yayyy! I'm excited about my numbers still dropping at a fairly good rate. As I lose weight I know it is going to get harder and harder, but I am determined to push on! My parents and brother come home on Christmas, and I'm hoping that when they come home they get to see a whole new Sam! I hope everyone else is having a good week as well! We can do it as long as we keep focused on the prize! I've come so far! There's no giving up! I'm much happier with my life change! Good luck all!!! emoticon emoticon


Thanksgiving Day + Weigh In

Thursday, November 28, 2013

I am pleased to say that the scale budged in a good way this week! I am now 156.6 lbs and loving it! I didn't think that I would see 150 anything for a while! I'm so proud of how far I have come and I couldn't do it without SP!!! I tried so many times before and could just never stick to my programs! I am now and more determined than ever to meet my goal! I have really been pushing myself and am glad to have something to show for it! I hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving day filled with love and blessings! Fortunate enough for me I'm didn't celebrate Thanksgiving today with a big feast! My parents (Truckdrivers!) are driving somewhere in Georgia and my Middle brother is in the Military and will only be home for Christmas. My Thanksgiving is tomorrow with my youngest brother and mother-in-law, then another on Saturday with my father-in-law. Instead of overeating and being miserable like every other year I plan to stay on track! I'm going to thoroughly enjoy every bite of my well portioned meal and work it off the next day! lol. Eating less never felt so good! emoticon emoticon

    It's nice you had the time to spend with other relatives, if not your parents. You'll be twice as happy seeing your brother at Christmas, and maybe then your parents will be there too.

Congratulations on that terrific weight loss! It makes for a REALLY happy Thanksgiving, doesn't it?
