Time to re-focus!

Wednesday, January 26, 2011

I didn't do so good this week..I had high hopes as I started doing the ITC...but then I flaked on it ...I am up another pound...as I haven't worked out since Sunday..I am going to push myself to do some type of workout tonight..something..anything..I don't care...even if it is just dancing in room to some tunes...I also have been eating more junk food..cravings sweets and giving into those cravings..so I need to stop doing that. I don't know what it is...it might be that I try so hard to not eat candy/sweets and junk food that once in awhile I give in and I don't do it in "moderation" like you are supposed to...I do it big time! The main problem is I didn't work out most of this week...course I did get in the cleaning mood today and scrubbed kitchen counters as some stains were hard to remove...that must count for something..:)

I don't know if I was in a rut or what..but I am in a GREAT mood now. I just found out this morning that the externship that I applied for...has been accepted and I will be starting next week. I am very excited about it!

I think I should look at some blogs and pages of friends to get some INSPIRATION & MOTIVATION!

  Congratulations on your externship!! Don't give up!!

For me, it is still hard every day. I gained weight over the holidays and it just seems stuck. I am watching my food, tracking, and have increased my exercise. Yet, those pounds seem glued to by gut.

But I have not thrown in the towel yet. But I am wondering what else I should try--go back to weight watchers, cut back on a couple more hundred calories and aim for the low end of my range? I am really at a loss!

Good luck to you and thanks for blogging!

Chris

Have to get back on track...

Tuesday, January 18, 2011

Ok...so I have a confession...I haven't worked out since Saturday when I had my Zumba class. I've had upset stomach since Sunday and have been giving into my chocolate cravings more than I normally do and I am very disappointed in myself. I normally will have a little bit but not as much as I have had the past few days. I wasn't in the mood to work out Sun or Monday and after reading a friends email got me in the right mind set to work out tonight..and with The Biggest Loser on tonight..I told myself that I needed to work out. I did pig out more than I should have today as well..I guess that is what happens when you are "snowed in" and are just sitting in front of tv..not doing anything...I take full responsibility...I was 135 this morning when I weighed myself..which didn't bother me too much...as it was only 2lbs that I had gained since last week...but tonight before my workout I weighed myself and it said 137..so I am not sure what my accurate weight is...but after seeing that...I got more deteremined to pop in the dvd. I did more than normal as I haven't worked out in ages it seems.

Before I decided to workout tonight...I was going to make some cards and I thought about it for a minute or two...and said to myself that I KNOW I would feel better if I worked out, but if I made some cards I wouldn't feel the "same" satisfaction as I would have if I had worked out and right there and then my decision was made...I had been wanting to make cards all day...but when it came down to it...I realized working out would be so much more beneficial for me. I really don't like getting in these type of moods where I don't work out. So, I just need to get back on track...Since I've been eating more...I tend to eat when I am not hungry and this is what happened last time. So, I need to "start over" again and focus on eating only when hungry and every 3-4 hours and not every second like have been...It's really just a work-in-progress...and I hope to someday get to where I want to be...

I know beating myself up about this is not going to change anything. I just have to accept what I have done and move on. I have to take it one day at a time. I just need to forget about today or yesterday. Tomorrow is a new day for me and I will start off on a better foot!

Was craving sweets yesterday...

Thursday, January 13, 2011

and therefore I had some ice cream that I found in the freezer...didn't know it was there and thought it was empty..wished it was empty...it wasn't though thanks to me now it almost is LOL...I regret eating that much...and I don't know if I felt like I had to eat a lot of today because I felt like I had cabin fever by being inside all day due to the snow storm we had today...I didn't get to exercise as I didn't have the space and was trying to declutter my space...But since I shoveled for about 30 minutes today...that is some type of exercise I guess...

Thursday....today....is a NEW DAY! I just have to focus on eating right again :) and work out as well...which means I need to get to bed!

    Just an idea but I am a big fan of the dove dark chocolates in the freezer - then I can take one or two when I am craving sweet. Ice cream is a danger food for me! AND shoveling is good exercise if done right!

    When I crave sweets I try to find something really small to just give myself a bite and then get away from it from there so I do not destroy all my hard work!! Stay focused emoticon

Feels so good to workout today!

Monday, January 10, 2011

I didn't work out Sunday...which I regretted and got back into it today w/ 3 miles w/ Leslie Sansone dvd. I know it's good to take a day or two off...I usually do w/out meaning to..it just happens...but I know some people don't...to each their own...But I know I feel more complete when I get a workout in whether it is just a mile or more it makes me feel good. I just need to incorporate ab workouts into my routine as I don't do them as often as I should especially now that the weight is coming off and I am realizing that I need to start toning my abs so that I can lose the belly fat.

    I can totally relate!

I did a 3 mile Leslie Sansone DVD, too! I did Walk Your Belly Flat with bicyles.(that's good for abs.) I love that one. I haven't done it in a long time.

I had been on a 109 day exercise streak (amazing for me!) but got sick and finally had to take time off. Then for me it was difficult getting started again but I did. Today is Day 9 of my new exercise streak.

I recently started to do a Jackie Warner DVD. I can't remember the name but it has a 40 min. Total Body Circuit, a 15 min. Total Body Circuit, and 15 min. abs, 15 min. upper body, 15 min. lower body.

I have been doing the 15 min. Total Body Circuit and I'm feeling it. There are abs in it. When I started SP back in spring of '09 I could barely get down on the floor and my knee hurt. Now I can do jumping jacks and squats. I can't believe it. Jackie Warner's ab work is difficult but I'm getting better. Oh, I just remember. I did the 40 min. Jackie Warner Total Body Circuit Friday night. I may try it again on the weekend.

Good luck! You are so close to goal. I bet that last few pounds is hard to lose!

    Keep up the great work girl!! emoticonon getting your workout in!! I have found that when I get up early and work out then I do not need to worry about finding the time to do it!! I work out every day in some way for 1-1/2 to 2 hours and it does feel good when I do it but I have been doing it now since Jul or Aug 2010 and it is no longer a chore to get up. I just get ready for work when I am finished and feel better energized for my day!! emoticon emoticon

Starting fresh in 2011

Sunday, January 09, 2011

I have been doing pretty good over the holidays..sticking to eating a certain amount of calories a day..this is new to me as I usually gain so much weight this time of year. But since November I have been really focusing on eating right and I am happy to say that I am still sticking with it. My plan is to get in the shape I want to be in before I turn 40 (which is almost a yr from now). I love the weight that I am at now and if I stayed at this weight it wouldnt' bother me...my goal is to flatten my stomach!! That is a real issue for me and I have decided this year I am going to focus on eating more healthy foods and focus on work outs that will benefit me in the sense that I will lose the belly fat and be able to tone my abs..I know it will be hard, but I also know that it is so worth it! I know that this is a personal goal for me, while I have never been really heavy (except when I was pregnant) so I don't have as many issues as others may...I still find it very hard for me on a daily basis and know that I have to think of the BIG PICTURE or I will fall off the wagon. I have had some days where I did eat too much dessert at a party or get together...but I told myself to eat better/healthier the next day and to keep doing that and that has really helped. I weight myself on a daily basis which I also find helps me stay in check with where I want to be. It may not be for everyone, but it does work for me!
I am hoping that I will be able to stay focused in 2011!!!!
