monthly measurements

Saturday, September 17, 2011

Finally got my measurements done for the month.. I m running a day and a half behind but anyways just to be sure we measured everything two and three times.. so it looks like I m down another 7 inches.. that being an all over body total. And I am very happy about that!!

Still not feeling normal but that's okay I am still pushing threw. I am still doing my workouts, except I think I am doing alittle better than I was.. before I think I was just going threw the motions. Also I am keeping within my calorie range most days staying on the lower end. My sodium in take on most days is good but still have a few days I go over the 2300. For the most part I think I am right on track and well we shall see come weight in Monday morning!

Well that's it for now! Best wishes to everyone on a great rest of the weekend and A WONDERFUL & Progressive next week!!!

Starting to wonder

Thursday, September 15, 2011

Okay so I m starting to wonder What in the world is going on, I have been reading blogs and have found that alot of you are having the same type of problem I am,, with the feeling out of sorts, overly emotional.

So what is the deal,,, are we going threw some type of with drawl, is it depression, or hormones or What? This is just so crazy... I know all I want to do today is sit and cry... which no that's not an option... but that's all I feel like doing... I keep thinking any day now this feeling is going to go away and I m still waiting.

    One of the things I noticed through the years is that whenever I lose weight whatever emotion I was feeling when I put the weight on is what I feel as it burns off. I have since learned that we store excess hormones in fat so my theory is that the emotions come from the burning off of those hormones. Don't have any scientific studies to back it up but it helps on a down day to think: Burn baby burn!

    One theory I was introduced to this summer is that it matters not how we feel, it matters what we DO. So, if you don't feel like doing xxxxxxxxxxxxxx, do it anyway, and the act of doing it will improve how you feel.

I know this has always been the case for me with exercise. I never want to take that step to do it, but when I force myself, I always feel amazing afterwards.

I'm glad you got out and played with the kids. At least the weather is going to be great for a while... take advantage!

    At this time of year, my allergies act up, but it usually takes me a month or more to realize it. I get tired, sore throat, lethargic which can in turn make you feel sad too. Who knows what happens to our bodies when the weather changes. I hope you do something wonderful for youself and that you start to feel loads better very soon!

  Maybe the planets are in a wonky alignment? Maybe the season change has everyone out of sorts? I've been feeling it too!

    Ur so right this seems to be going around. Today I feel like I am coming down with a cold. Maybe I have been fighting it off all week? Needless to say I have not let my little friend Past Tracy back. I don't feel like I am exercising as hard as I usually do but I am still doing it.

Come on Tara u can do it!

    I'm sorry to hear you're feeling so down in the dumps. I sure know what that's like! It is kind of bizarre if a lot of us are experiencing the same types of things...it really makes you wonder. A sociologist might say there is some kind of collective sadness because of 9/11 or the never ending recession (can we just be honest and call it a depression? NoooooOOOOO). A meterologist might suggest it has something to do with weather patterns. A minister might say we're having a crisis of faith due to cultural influences. Maybe it's comparable to mass hysteria or something like that, where a few people started talking about being down, and then it spread like the plague.

I don't know. But it is an interesting question!

day 70 on SP

Tuesday, September 13, 2011

Today's day 70 on SP for me and in the past few days I have been feeling out of sorts, just not quite right, feeling kinda of sick...even hormonal at times so I m wondering if I m getting sick or is it something more going on here???

Am I falling of my plan... am I slacking... am I getting sick.. what is my deal. I've got to get this figured out and taken care of. I so don't want to be falling off track. I want to go back to the beginning of last week when I had energy to burn and was feeling Great!!! I guess I m going to go look back at everything and see if and where's there's differences.

    Oh Tara, just hang on a few more days and either you'll end up getting sick (I hope not) or the hormones will work them selves out. Either way you'll have an answer. You can ABSOLUTELY do this. Why not pick your fave easiest meals for the next few days. Its not cheating, its being prepared.

Wishing you all the best!

    Tara I will hang tough if you do. I already posted I was feeling the same. I am feeling very emotional and no reason for it. I am tired and want to crawl back to bed and swear I would sleep all day. Being tired like this makes me want to eat and I am not talking about a big old salad either! I know I am.getting sick of eating the same lunch and today I tried a different breakfast and I missed my normal one! Good thing I have a walking buddy on Tuesday nights or I would probably try to get out of it.

I know we can both beat this. We are strong people and I bet if we get up and find something productive to do we will feel better....so I am challenging US! LETS GO TARA!!!

20 week challenge week 4 weight in

Monday, September 12, 2011

Good Morning to all! Well the results are in I weighed in this morning and well I m not thrilled but its my own fault I m up .2 (oz) and the reason I say its my own fault is because even tho I did good last week with my work outs and drinking water and for the most part my calories and sodium was good UNTIL the past I think 3 days my sodium intake was not so good. So there's were its my fault. emoticon I fully take the blame, I should have watched that closer. Okay so with knowing that I m am determined to do better this week! And make that weight move!! Down not up lol
Okay so off to start week 5!!

Best wishes to everyone on a weight loss week!! emoticon

kinda an off day today... sorry its alot of rambling on lol

Sunday, September 11, 2011

Feeling out of sorts today, got up at 8:45 this morning getting ready for church and got the kiddos ready, was running alittle behind so just had a banana for breakfast. Had to stop at the store to get something to bring to church,, we were celebrating our pastors 50th year. So made it to Church just in time. Enjoyed it then had lunch with everyone and singing afterwards. Had to call it short at 2pm needed to come home and put my baby girl to sleep,,, she's use to being laid down with nothing going on to distract her. So we made it home and we all feel asleep.. now needless to say this is not my normal but since I ate alittle bit a church, I m sure the only thing that was good for me was the wheat roll.. so I had a few bites of a few things and that was all. But I just don't feel right haven't been drinking water all day long and eating like I need to. So now I m playing catch up on my water.. no problem,, but still feeling out of sorts with not having done anything like cleaning or cooking ect today..lol Oh well back to my normal routine tomorrow. I think the other thing that is bothering me is my sinus,, starting up another headache.. and normally I don't take naps but I just couldn't sleep last night and my 3 year old woke up at 4:45 this morning, said she had had a night mare... so it was kinda along night last night.
Also tomorrow is weight in for me finger crossed!

Sorry everyone for the random rambling on lol sometimes you just have to get it out.
So Thanks to all who suffered threw this lol

    Glad I wasn't the only one. I visited my daughter and she wanted Chinese. I only ate 1-2 bites of the things I like, but I felt guilty about it all day and only had a small salad for supper. Yesterday morning, my hubby went and bought himself a certain, famously named, box of donuts (x 2!) that I DEFINATELY can't have. They are still sitting on my counter....he had 6...ugh! I didn't have any, but I wanted to choke him! Oh well, I'm back on track today...you can to!!

    Sounds like you had a few things going on today and your body just said slow down. You listened and tomorrow your body will say that's enough, got things to do today. thanks for sharing!

    Don't sweat it. I don't think you did as bad as you think. I hardly feel like eating when I'm sick. We have good days, and bad days. It all balances out usually! emoticon

    It doesn't sound like you did so bad though. Sometimes our bodies just need that extra relaxing day to gear us up for another round. I sure hope your sinuses are feeling better soon. My son is having a hard time and this is the first fall that I am not having such a hard time. Isn't funny how your body adjusts to the water though? When we went away for those couple of days, I was only drinking 8-10 glasses a day and since I started I have been doing 18. Every afternoon I could feel the difference in my body. I can't really explain the feeling, but I just felt off! And I got chapped dry lips...in the summer! Good luck at weigh in and have a great night!
