20 week Challenge.. week 9 results

Monday, October 17, 2011

Good Morning to all!

Okay so I weighted in this morning didn't really have high hopes or anything because last week wasn't my best for starters I didn't do ST last week because of my neck.. I let it rest and all I can say is its still alittle sore but I m kinda tired of waiting for it to get over it so ST back on first thing in the morning!
Also some how I had hurt my right hip, thigh and knee sometime last Wed/ Thus. so I did finish out the week's workout but took it easy and didn't do hardly anything this past weekend by the time Friday evening came around my leg was hurting like crazy.. I had some pain/inflammatory meds left over from my c-section so took a few over a 3 day spain and Feel so much better now and plan on getting back in the game!!! I plan on stepping it up alittle this week play catch up for last week! I also was able to well for the most part stay away from all the cakes, cup cakes and party foods this past weekend. I had 1 strawberry cup cake and that's it!!! But I did eat chips and dip and the sandwiches my Mom inlaw bought a Large sandwich tray for the party.
The dip was spinage, and the chips were On the Border tortilla chips.. lower in sodium and in calories.

Later this evening, when hubby gets home I'm gonna have him do my monthly measurements.. If I don't forget again lol Other than that all is good.. this week should go smooth then this Sat is my hubby's Birthday so were planning on going out to eat and maybe take the kiddos to the zoo! So I m looking forward to that!
So to all Best Wishes for a Great week!!! emoticon

    I glanced at your previous blog and saw you have a one year old. When my two oldest children were between 1 and 2, I had terrible bursitis in my shoulder. It was so bad that I could not turn my neck. It was due to carrying my kids. Now I had very large kids (its genetic) My son was 12 pounds at birth and by the time he was one he weighed almost 30 pounds. My daughter was 10 pounds at birth and around 25 pounds at one. They were tall kids. My son was a little pudgy but my daughter was normal for her height. However they were heavy and caused my bursa to inflame. My orthopaedic Dr. started me on physical therapy and advised me to take ibuprophen before the bursa inflamed. When I had my last child I was proactive and took the ibuprophen prophylactically and had no problems. My youngest also weighed in at over 10 pounds at birth. This might be why you are having your neck issues.

20 week challenge....week 8 weight in and on to week 9

Monday, October 10, 2011

Okay so I m home, I m worn out, I haven't been feeling good since yesterday morning.. Don't know if I'm getting sick, or if its allergy's maybe or what but it just feels like a mix of things.

Its probably just because I wasn't eating, drinking and doing my normal. I will be so glad to get back to the normal everyday routine I know I will feel better.
Don't get me wrong I had lots of fun and it was a Great weekend But I feel the difference in how I feel, how my body feels, From lack of eating good.. I didn't Over eat BUT what I did eat wasn't anything close to my normal. I also didn't drink as much as I normally would. And I think that's another reason I feel drained. And the food I ate I think is why I've been feel.. off and kinda yuckie.

Plus it doesn't help that my neck still sore and has been for almost 4 weeks now... I duno if I strained it or what its not horrible but just hasn't went away.
Anyways so I'm gonna push myself to get things done today and get back in to my routine of things so tomorrow will be a better day.

I also did weight in and it says I m up 1lb & 5oz.. I'm so not worried because I know that's problaly fluid retention and from the added sodium intake. Normally I stay on the lower end but I wasn't the one cooking this weekend and I just didn't want to be rude or anything so I ate small portions of what was cooked all weekend and figured I would just deal with it when I came home.

Okay so there's were I'm at today and here's to a better tomorrow.
And getting back to the normal!!

    You had a lot happening last weekend. You are hanging in there though and doing great. Don't fret over the pound, it's most likely sodium like you said. It'll come off. I hope you get to feeling better soon. emoticon

    Don't you worry about that pound. It'll come off in no time, and the scale lies anyways. Like you said if was probably party food, and by next weigh in there will be no sign of it. Keep up the hard work. Hope you feel better soon!!!

    I think you did amazing and your weigh in is affected from the party and weekend foods. It will come right off like the vacation weight! Here's to a great week :)

    Given everything going on last weekend, you did great. I agree today;s weigh-in won't be reliable because you can't eat party food and not get an above average dose of sodium. I hope you feel better soon. emoticon

    I think you have enough going on that you don't need to add food stress. This sort of weekend does not happen often so let yourself have permission to enjoy the weekend. Then get back on track next Monday. It will keep you sane and it will not affect your weight loss in the long run. Have a wonderful weekend! emoticon

20 week challenge week 7 weight in and the start of week 8

Monday, October 03, 2011

Okay so this morning I weighted myself and I knew that last time I weighted it said I gained 1 lb 8oz but I was worried because it was TOM and I always get bloated pretty bad so when I weighted this morning I was hoping and expecting it to be a good bit less but what I seen I was like WOW are you sure are you really sure??? SO I weighted 3 more times and yup every time it said the same thing.. I even had my hubby weight, since he's not dieting he kinda of stays at the same weight. lol anyways every time I weighted it said the same thing 328.8lbs and that 7 lbs down from my last weight in... WoooHooo I'll take it! I figure If I broke it down it would be on ave what I lose per week right now and I guess its making up for last week lol Gotta love that Tom lol I also think it helped that I was able to stay on the lower end of the sodium like the past 4 days so I think I m gonna try and do that more often lol

So now on to week 8!!!! Best wishes to everyone on making week 8 a Great one! So let's go make it count my friends!!!!
