Ugly day.

Wednesday, January 16, 2013

Sun wasn't out today. Am I the only one in the world that hates cloudy days?

Funny that the same day it was cloudy, the same day I read an article about getting extra vitamin D on the website. I should have gone to buy some, I feel so drained today.

I did something great today though. Boyfriend wanted McDonalds for dinner, so I planned ahead and tracked my food to see what I could do. 6 piece chicken nuggets, one barbecue sauce and a yogurt and fruit parfait! I feel like I'm getting better at making good decisions.

Felt bad though, I didn't work out today, but I'll make up for in tomorrow. 2 Jumpstart videos and some cardio. Gotta stay on track! Some days, it's just hard.

  i love the sun and am happier when it's out. an overcast, yucky day would probably be a rest day exercisewise for me.

Sweet Tooth Challenge.

Thursday, January 10, 2013

About a few days ago, I joined the Official Sweet Tooth Challenge. I haven't had any sweets since then.

I've had a Nutz Over Chocolate Luna Bar though, but I really don't know if that counts. I use it more for the nutrients in it than the chocolate factor.

I patted myself on the back again yesterday. My co-workers fiance offered me a cookie, I turned him down. He even wondered if something was wrong with me because I've never turned him down. XD
Just told him I'm trying to cut back. I think this challenge is helping me though.
Normally I'd eat sweets any time I wanted to, but I really don't feel any different. The only difference I feel is being a little bit more proud of myself that I've stuck through it so far.

Most of us can relate on how badly we crave sweets. I wish I was more like my boyfriend though, he almost never craves sweets. Ugh! If only!

    Sometimes it takes a while before something happens and all of a sudden....whoosh, the change you've been waiting on finally happens. So for now it may be only pride and willpower that you are getting out of this, but someday all these helpful changes will catch up with you. You'll have more energy, or you'll loose some weight, or you're size will drop....sometime, someday, it will catch up with you somehow.

Yesterday and today, I felt felt really good about myself.

Yesterday when I went to pump gas, I needed to get sunflower seeds. I love those! I suddenly had this urge to buy some chocolate. Probably because I'm on that time of the month. Blech! emoticon Anyways! When I looked at the chocolate to decide what I wanted, I remembered that I'm trying to tame my sweet tooth and I just need to cut down on the sweets! So I turned away and just bought the sunflower seeds! emoticon I felt so proud of myself!

Today I went with some friends to Kerby Lane Cafe. Normally I indulge myself in bad foods, but today I think I did pretty good. Instead of getting pancakes, eggs and bacon(or sausage), I decided on the fruit cup! Orange, pear and apple slices galore! I felt really great eating the oranges and apples. I don't seem to find the taste of pears to appealing. Oh well.

I am hoping I can keep this up.

  Those days of the months always call for sweets and salty cravings. Me is candies or anything sweet and potato chips so I buy UTZ no salt potato chips.

Been awhile...

Thursday, September 13, 2012

With everything going on, the move and the car situation. I was super depressed gaiz. We spent a lot of time and money trying to figure out what was wrong with it. Turns out it was the fuel pump and now it's fixed! emoticon
I got my license almost 3 weeks ago now! I love driving! It's so liberating and so fun. Especially in a sports car. *squeak*

Sadly, I haven't been tracking like I should and I haven't been working out either. There are still so many things to do in this apartment some days. I'm trying to find a place for everything instead of on the floor. Right now my computer is actually on the floor....and I'm sitting on the floor. My boyfriend's last car payment is coming up and hopefully he can buy me that desk I was looking at that's really cheap. It's not fancy or anything but it's something. Being on this floor all day has made me more lazy than normal I think and my legs and back hurt sitting like this. emoticon

I'm still at 122 lbs right now so I'm 12lbs away from my goal which is awesome. I just have to start tracking again and go from there.

I'm really tired all the time too.

Lately, I've been sleeping in a lot. Last night I went to bed at 1 and woke up at 11:02. Felt bad, I have so much to do before work today. One of the things was to blog. I feel like I need to update everyone on what's been going on.

But, things are a lot better than what they were. I'm really happy living with Brandon and life is good even though we're struggling a whole bunch with money and all. Trying to find a new job that pays better and maybe I can have off on weekends. That would be nice....

Well, got more things to do! Thanks for reading! emoticon


Doing well.

Today was an amazing day. Last night was too. I watched Thor with my boyfriend. We've never seen it before and we loved it! Nommed on popcorn and cuddled up watching the movie, quoted memes and laughed. He woke me up early in the morning. *ahem* Sadly, since I was so comfy in his bed I didn't get moving until almost 2PM. I felt bad but I read some of The Spark today that made me not feel so bad anymore.
I'm going to stop beating myself up about not getting things done. I have a tendency to do that a lot. It's upsetting and stresses me out. I did the 10-minute workout video on the website by Coach Nicole and wow! It's actually pretty intense for 10 minutes. I also went over to a friends and when I got off the bus I started up the pedometer app on my phone. It wasn't a lot but it was something. I was happy.

I didn't get a lot done today but I got to spend time with friends. We frosted and decorated cupcakes. Watched a really horrible Japanese horror movie that almost made me cry and walk out of the room a few times. Had some pizza too. A lot of pizza. emoticon Ah well, what can you do? You have to indulge sometime or you're just not living! I hope I lost some weight this week or I will have to reset my goal. emoticon Not sure how I feel about that. Maybe I should remove the ticker from my profile and just do what I can.

When I first started this program I weight 140lbs, I am at 126 now. Funny thing, I worked out really hard and then just stopped for a couple of months and it seemed like the weight just kind of fell off by itself. Hmm, I wonder if it was a "settle down" kind of thing? Not sure but I am glad it happened. I also lost weight working at Hallmark. Weird I know but around the end-of-the-year holidays it gets pretty bad. They keep a lot of the boxes for figurines in the back room so when someone wants one we have to go get it and that's a lot of walking in one day. It gets pretty bad at the job I'm at now but I don't seem to be losing as much. Well, actually it seems that my waist line is getting smaller. emoticon
I need to start taking measurements.

    lol yay jobs being exercise! I can feel ya...I run around like a chicken with me head cut off most days at work. Glad to hear your weight loss is progressing- but hey! when you have lots of popcorn and pizza, be sure to measure it out and track it- that's the only way you'll know for sure if you will lose this week or not. It just gets harder the closer you get to goal weight...or if you've battling it for years, like me. lol. Good luck this week! (also, wasn't Thor amazing? I mean...those ABS!)

    That's really awesome! I think that being kinder to yourself is a good attitude. I wouldn't worry overmuch if you don't lose weight this week; remember that losing weight isn't a linear process. Some weeks you'll lose, some you won't, others you may even gain... this is totally normal! This is because our bodies aren't calculators. ;) Especially us women... we run on a four-week cycle!
