My Story

Tuesday, January 17, 2012

i never really told my story and why i am starting on this journey. I will be 2 years on april when i found i had an allergy to Gluten. I was at my highest weight of my life 298 pounds. I stuck with the new lifestyle and lost down to 250 from just changing my diet. I have been teetering around 250 for almost a year bouncing between 270-240. I am just sick of it. I was tired of excluding myself from everything b/c i hated the way i looked. I have always been a big girl and that has plagued me my whole life. I have always felt like a 2nd class citizen to the world.
In the fall i took a huge step for me and went to college. It had been 13 years for me since i was out of high school. Things happened at home and lets just say i was unhappy in marriage and i guess so was my husband and he found a new playmate nd i caught them in the act. That threw me for my worst loop of my life. It took me hitting below rock bottom (yes it does exsist) to realize i needed to start climbing out of the muck. I kept going to school and i started to realize that i needed a new start. I was the girl tired of makes excuses, lies, and not living life. What kind of example was i setting for my children. Before when things happened i had a hum drum att. I was sick of being walked on, made fun of, talked about, getting nasty looks. No more!!! This is my time to shine! I will make the rules for once. I had to shut off the naggy little voice in my head ...well not just shut off i had to kill it. Then i knew i had to keep this going. If i joined forces with people and made myself responsible every single day then in knew i could do this.
That is where i am right now. I am still pretty early in my battle. but, oh honey the war has just begun and i'm packing heat! I am ready to be the hot girl. I am ready to shop at a regular store. I am ready to show you what healthy and happy looks like. I am ready!!!!

    It looks like both of us had the fire of "being sick if it" hit us at the same time. emoticon

Shape it up and 2nd Gym workout.

Sunday, January 15, 2012

I decided to make a group on facebook for people to join and we work as a team. We had our first meeting today. i knew half of my group would not be there b/c they live out of town or contacted me. I had one friend show up and we talked about some of the things that hold us back and how to get motivated. I will be writing a shared email tonight going over motivation, goals, and finding a way to keep you on target.
I went to the gym right after the meeting to work out. i did 15 minutes on a eliptical. I choose this machine b/c it works my total body. After the cardio setting and time i had burned off a 20oz soda. I came to a conclution while i sat on a weight machine with a sweat drenched shirt. I don't care how good a soda might taste. it is not worth what i just put myself thur. :) i guess that is good motivation for today :) right now i am chugging a 20oz water and it taste AWESOME!!! i finally got water to taste good !

Well today i went to and worked out in a gym for the first time in my life. I know that sounds crazy but i have always been intimated by skinny runners and buff guys that might stare at my fat ass. Then i realzied that they don't matter and I shouldn't care. That I am even in a gym at all show I have what it take to walk out the door and get things done.
I filled my ipod last night and laid out my workout clothes. Went to the Y this morning after dropping the boys off and show and swallowed the lump and ignored the "you don't have to do this voice" (which i think is fat talking trying to keep itself around) I didn't work out too long. I chose an eliptical machine i wanted something to get me to my cardio output pretty quick and it did. at 15 minutes i had reached my goal. i went on to doing leg press machine i did my reps on there.
I am pretty proud i went past the point of hurt into the endorphine zone. I hope i can keep it up and do it almost daily. I know now not to stop when it hurts. you have to keep on it. I plan to go back tomorrow if it's not busy and do some kettlebell training at home.

    My fat talks to me all the time, it convinces me to sit around and watch tv. My wii is my friend against my fat. Glad you shoved the voices down and went on to work out. emoticon

    I live down the street from the Y here, but since we have no one to leave Adam with I miss out on utilizing it's service. But it's all good. I work out on campus (talk about only buff guys and skinny girls) before class two days a week and am really enjoying doing what I can at home. Adam is even plays my new work out game. He thinks its fun. :D Now if only he'd stop making fun of me when I use it. :(
I'm glad you swallowed the lump and pressed on! This is the start to a new chapter in your life. You can do it!!!!!!

    Good for you to go to the gym! It shouldn't hurt though. Can you get a trainer to help you figure out a routine just for you? Most gyms help new members this way. Good luck-take care! emoticon

It seems i am always starting. Well i just needed the right push. In the fall i did randolph co shape up. I found i like to be kept accountable for my actions and it kept me on track. I didn't do so good on the actual challenge but i was only doing a half ass job i admit it.
So many things have changed for me this year and i want to take advantage of it. I have found out how strong i am personally and now i know i do have the strength to muddle thru anything.

    I find myself constantly starting too. Since doing the little daily exercise thing I got off of pinterest, I think I am *hopefully* on my way to just doing, not just starting. I waited until I was halfway through the exercise thing before going out and buying the healthier food. I know it's backward, but I guess it was the motivation I needed. LOL!
