Here we go.

Monday, January 31, 2011

Alright, its Monday - I'm supposed to be ready to go today. I am counting calories again and going to start working out - but where to start so that I do not get a set back. I mean - I vaccuumed yesterday and am sore. What is tomorrow going to be like after I try a light workout.
I might start with a little wii aerobics and yoga. We are supposed to get 2 feet of snow this week so outside with the baby is not an option.
Ok so my plan - during my baby's afternoon nap I will do some workouts on the wii.

  


Back again

Tuesday, January 25, 2011

Here I am after a few years. Trying to be motivated to lose again.
What is the difference this time? I just had my first child and I am the absolute heaviest I have ever been. Sure, when I came home from the hospital I was 221, and now in 5 weeks I am down to 205. BUT this is without trying to lose weight. It just happened.
Now I need to be think about what I am putting in my mouth - is it healthy for me, would I feed it to my baby? AND I need to figure out an exercise routine without losing important time with my child. To add to it all, I am NOT back to work yet! That will be another difficult piece of the puzzle.
In 2 days I find out if I am able to exercise again. Since I had a c-section I was put on many lifting and physical restrictions. I am ready to lose this pouch I have and get toned again.
Right now the only pants that fit are my maternity pants! How long will this last? I would like to fit into my old jeans again (which are still not my ideal size) - how long will this take?
Starting next Monday I will be counting calories and starting to determine how I can get active again.
Wish me luck!

Looking at myself in the mirror, I wonder what happened to that motivated person? I used to go to the Y for 2 hours a day or more 5 -7 days a week, and I loved it! What changed? Well, I got a full time job teaching - my dream career and have put every bit of my energy into making my classroom and lessons fun and engaging. I get home and I have laundry, dusting, vaccuming, and unpacking to do on top of grading papers and making plans for the next lesson. When all I really want to do is sit myself in front of the TV and stuff my face with supper and whatever comes after - which I often give in to.

Since the beginning of the year I have been telling myself, 2 pounds a week cannot be difficult as long as I watch what I eat and start working out again. Well I have been working out again and I am just about back where I started. I'm not trying to fool myself, but I am. I am still not watching what I eat. I need to change that.

My new goal for myself - taking time Sunday nights to plan my meals for the week. I will add my calories ahead of time and not be influenced by standing in front of the fridge wondering what I should eat, or snacking when I'm not even hungry.

In the end I just want to be healthy again, active, and well.... fit into those jeans that I cannot button anymore.

As the team says it best...........I'm DONE being the fat girl!

    I can really sympathise. It's sometimes really hard to make healthy choices - you obviously really care about your work, and life gets busy too, and it's just hard to find the time and energy for everything you want to achieve. My advice would be to try not to beat yourself up too much - be kind to yourself, make one change at a time, and never give up. You can and will reach your goals.
