Right back where I started...

Tuesday, January 06, 2009

So it's January and I am right back where I started from LAST January! Same weight and so out of shape. After all that hard work of eating right and exercising, I have start all over...again. Its very frustrating.

I just did 30 min of cardio and was panting, muscle screaming for mercy, lol. I really didn't think I was out of shape like that. But really what did I expect? I let myself fall into a funk from being unemployed for so long. Sitting on the couch, surfing the net for work and stuffing my sorrows with anything I can find. My only exercise was walking to the kitchen to find what I can eat.

I blame no one but myself, because I let this happen and its up to me to fix it.

Today is day 1 of the rest of my life. Wish me luck!

    Good Luck!

I'm right there with you, getting back to where I was.
But, you are doing it now and that is what counts.

Be Strong!

Progress...

Wednesday, April 23, 2008


I haven't been on Spark in about 2-3 weeks and I've missed it. I've noticed that when I get caught up in 'life' and don't document what I eat or my workouts, I begin to fall off. Its so easy to fall back into habits of old. I can't have that. I took a picture recently to see if I'd made any progress. I look at myself EVERYDAY and swear I looked the same as before. Well, I was wrong! I can actually SEE the difference. I was amazed. It confirmed that all that hard work has really been doing something. The only thing that hasn't really changed is the scale. That blasted scale really gets under my skin. I haven't been on in a week and decided I won't get back on until my birthday next month.

I say all of that to say, I am BACK and ready to kick it into high gear. As long as I can fit COMFORTABLY in the fabulous dress I've purchased for my birthday party, the number on the scale will mean nothing!

Onward and upward!

    Yes you can definitely see some differences. Stop being so hard on yourself you're doin this! How are your clothes fitting? Loser? Better? Just hang in there and by your birthday the scale will have to give it up!

Bottomless Pit

Wednesday, March 26, 2008

Today I ate like my stomach was a bottomless pit. The day started off really well. I had a great healthy breakfast like always, but by the time afternoon rolled around, it was all downhill. It started with me eating this one cookie. Sometimes that's all it takes for me to go off the deep end. After that I just kept shoveling in all kinds of food.. What is crazy is that before I put whatever it is in my mouth, I would say to myself, 'why are you about to eat this? your not even hungry!' I would just tune out that voice and shovel in the food. It wasn't an emotional thing or because of boredom, it was just because... I'm not going to beat myself up about it.

The good thing about tomorrow is I get a do over:)

    What did you do, watch me or something lol??!?!? I had the same episode yesterday, reading your post is almost like being in my kitchen again this morning watching myself eating teddy grahams, sun chips and too much dinner last night knowing that for real, I wasn't anywhere near hungry. Girl I was so full that I felt like I was going to be sick but like you said, we get the chance to do better today and not use that lapse as an excuse to keep eating. Keep that positive attitude, and good luck to you!

    I did the same thing. Went to the gym in the a.m., ate some egg whites and wheat bread for breakfast..Had some mango and baked potato for lunch. Lean cuisine for dinner then BOOM!!! Someone brought a Coldstone chocolate ice cream cake in and I had a huge piece. Then someone was selling chocolate bars at work and of course I indulged, not to mention the rice and beans my coworker had and I wasn't even hungry...It's all good though...Tommorrow is another day..Start fresh...Overcome temptation and don't beat yourself up...Good luck!!!

Grocery Shopping w/the Hubby

Tuesday, February 26, 2008

So, I went grocery shopping with my husband this evening. He insists when I come home from shopping that there is nothing to eat. If it doesn't come in a box/bag or can't be microwaved in under 5 min. there is no food in the house! Anyway, I was done with my part of the shopping within 10-15 min, because I basically only shop the perimeter of the store. I go in the aisles for just a few minor items, especially if I am not shopping at a health food store. Well, can I tell ya how full our cart was?? That man had enough process food in that cart to last him at least 2 weeks or more!! All I could do was shake my head. I tried to interject here and there on certain items but it was like fighting a losing battle. He kept saying 'I need food to eat'. Heaven forbid this man take the time to cook a meal for himself if I'm not around! lol. I am thankful that my son has made the decision on his own to eat better, but I'm not sure how he's going to do with all the crap in the house.

I am so glad that I already have my eye on the prize and will not succumb to the temptation!! lol

    My husband tried to go the total opposite route with the tofu and organic, expensive stuff. I told him we are going to do this gradually. I am cooking more, not buying processed or prepackaged food and TRYING to buy healthier snacks. We have been doing good so far. All that organic food adds up real quick!
