One step up, three tumbles down...

Thursday, November 11, 2010

So, 9 days ago I posted about how I was sick and that is how I stopped working out, but I was back and wee right? Well I did not work out that Tuesday, but I did go Sat and again on Monday, and I have been walking on my lunch breaks and I was planning to go today, and i suppose it's not too late to go and sit on the bike and use the cycle thing for a while, but I started to feel sick and yesterday I felt horrible and today even worse. I have been watching what i eat, but I consistently lack sleep. So I started working out and now I am sick again. This time worse than before. I don't know what gives, but I do not like it. Tomorrow i will go for a walk on my lunch break and Saturday I will get back in the gym. Hopefully I can battle this and be healthy for the rest of this year... I hope this doesn't sound like I'm making horrible excuses, I really have been sick :-(


The week leading up to Day 37

Tuesday, November 02, 2010

Well, I was sick and this is where I've been. I took some medicine Tuesday night before bed to help with my coughing and I had a bad reaction to it. I did not sleep well that night and when I woke up the next day I was dizzy and felt worse. I ended up being dizzy right up until I went to bed Wednesday evening. I was even a little off Thursday but I still came to work. I did not work out, I did not eat well, I gained 2 pounds. Soo all together a rough week. I am back on track and while I haven't gone to the gym, I did go for a walk this morning and plan to go to the gym tonight. What a struggle this weight loss thing is. I can't wait to kick it's ass and be done struggling. Oh well, I thought I would update, because this has been a source of encouragement for me. Thank you!


Day 30? blah

Tuesday, October 26, 2010

I am sick. I thought i was coming down with something, then I felt better but had a cough, then the cough got worse and then today i was hit with severe ear and lymph node pain. blah is all I have to say. I was going to go to the gym with the cough, but with the ears and nodes hurting, I am going to bed early to try to get rid of this craziness that has taken over my body. so again, I say, BLAH

Good of the day: Waking up and going for a walk

Bad of the day: Going to the doctor and being stabbed with needles

Ugly of the day: Random sudden ear and node ache... I don't know what's up with this, but it hurts :-(

    Oh and I suppose another good thing is I really stuck on track with my calories even though I haven't felt well. Just thought I would add that.

Day 26- the scale is playing tricks on me!

Friday, October 22, 2010

I'm not sure anyone would believe this. Here is the background. We have a scale that will save your weight, so when you weigh in next it gives you the difference. It's quite helpful for weightloss so you don't have to keep a paper somewhere because you forgot. You can also just step on the thing and get a number that won't be saved. Well, I frequently forget to go to my number to weigh in under my weight, so I weigh myself first, then go back and weigh in again so it tracks it.

So I step on forgetting to go to my number, it says I am only up .2 lbs weighing in at 152.0. I say, hey that's not horrible and I go to weight saved section, step on the scale (literally a minute later) and it says 153.8!! Now I'm 2 pounds up... I tried a few more times, but I think it knows I'm trying to change it since it's saved in there. Boy how nutty. So I've decided to take the 2 pound raise and hope for amazing numbers next week.

This weekend is going to be challenging because I am traveling to celebrate my grandma's 85th birthday, and I know there will be yummy food and not a lot of opportunity to work out (although I am going to bring the clothes just in case)

Okay that's enough of this long blog!


Day 25 - Up?

Thursday, October 21, 2010

Boy oh boy what a rough start to the day i had. I woke up late, normally I leave the house at 6AM... well I woke up at 6:30. yup, I somehow got ready in 15 mins (shower, dressed, packed and ready to go) I also weighed myself and it says I'm UP 1.5 pounds. I don't know if that's water retention from working out the night before, or possibly from the pull of the moon (ladies you all have this issue monthly) or if I just miscalculated horribly. I plan to weigh myself again tomorrow morning, if it says the same or something similar I will take the number and accept it. I dunno. I retained water for like a day after working out, so I can be hopeful that's the deal and tomorrow morning the scale will show in my favor.

So my good: ... um I don't know, I guess my good is waking up so late I forgot my cupcake

my somewhat good: Being pretty calm on the commute home even though I was 45 mins late for work and weighed in 2 pounds heavier. I didn't freak, just said I would work harder this weekend to shrink that number

The bad: Waking up late.. never a good way to start the day!
