Muscles tight but I'm gonna keep pushing!

Wednesday, November 14, 2012

emoticon My goal for this week is to burn 2000 calories!

I have completed 1,316!!! 684 to go!!

I was so tired when I got home today. I was about to talk myself out of working out and then I took my jeans off to hang them up!! That's all I needed.

I'll be glad when I can wrap those jeans around me! Or hold them up and be able to say " I use to wear this!" emoticon

My muscles are tight from yesterday's workout. I felt like I needed a good sweat!! It felt good to push myself and get a good workout in.

Pushing for the weekend! emoticon

So far, so good

Tuesday, November 06, 2012

I'm feeling rather good today! I managed to stay on my meal plan the last 2 days. I have no problem exercising and drinking my water. It's my mouth and what I put in it that was causing me problems. Focus, focus, focus. That's my goal this week.

I haven't been on the scale today either! I was weighing myself everyday. Not doing that anymore. To discouraging, going up & down, up & down.

We'll see how the rest of this week goes. Good luck everyone!!

    Keep it up! You are right, I wouldn't do the scale thing every day either. Water weight changes even throughout the day! Besides, once a week is a nice surprise to get!! Makes you want to keep going.

    You can do it! I'm in the same boat with you, meeting all of my goals except the calorie goals. Let's do this.

    Very good news about not weighing everyday so true ups and downs. Before you know it your clothes and how much more you can do will tell you how healthy you are getting.

Goal for next week - control stress & boredom

Sunday, November 04, 2012

Gone with the mistakes of last week emoticon
In with the new knowledge for next week emoticon

I've been reading and bloging, gathering as much information as I can to try and help me make it through one week without a slippage. It's been awhile since I've had that FOCUSED mindset. I'm trying to get it back because I still have a long way to go on this journey.

I've made some friends and have received a lot of suggestions and support on sparkpeople. So, you would think that I would be fired up and ready to go. I think my personal situation of being laid off, missing someone that means a lot to me, and being lonely is impacting my ability to focus. STRESS has been at an all time HIGH for 3 months now!! I'll be soooo glad when I find a job. Being low on money impacts a lot of things. Like having enough food, the right foods, to sustain me for a week. I've been stretching foods which on someday causes me to miss my calorie goal. Then when I do get asked out to dinner with family or go to the grocery store, I find myself over indulging or buying things I shouldn't. Not all the time, but too much of the time. I'm also not sleeping. I'm up all times of the night. I may fall asleep around 1:00 am and up at 4:00 am.

So, I've been spending more time on SparkPeople reading and bloging to keep me out of the fridge. This also helps me from feeling so lonely. I picked up a book over the weekend to read. It should occupy some time as its related to the meal plan I'm on.

So, my goal for next week is just to stay occupied with reading, bloging, and researching things on the internet so I won't get bored, lonely, disgusted and over stressed!

When I started on this journey in April, I was employed, happy, things were going great. I was at my happiest in years!! The weight was coming off. I was doing great. Then, my contract ended, job ended, and things started going down hill.

BUT this too shall pass!! I've got to weather the storm. But I'm so ready for the calm!

    Sound like you're going through some tough times. Your tiger background reminds me of ROCKY. You must become ROCKY - develop that "eye of the tiger" mentality. You can beat any issue that comes your way.

Know that I'm here if you need to talk! (One insomniac to another!) emoticon

SMH! Think I broke my toe!

Wednesday, October 31, 2012

I felt really good today. Walked to the mall, did some shopping and walked back. Got in 115 minutes of exercise today. Then after dinner, I accidentally slammed my foot into the molding! I think I broke my toe, it hurts really bad. I'll put some ice on it and stay off of it until tomorrow. I've broken my baby toe before and all they did was tape it to the next toe. So, I may not be able to do any walking tomorrow but I may be able to get a chair exercise in.

Happy Halloween!! emoticon

    Thanks everyone! Yes, I don't know what it is about this left foot. Always slamming it against something. Anyway, I'm the only one available to walk my dog so I wrapped my foot and hopped around 2x today to take him for a very short walk. It was nice just to stand out in the sun for awhile. I didn't go too far. It should feel a lot better by Monday.

    I'm so sorry. plenty of ice tonight and definitely tape tomorrow. give your toe a rest for a day or two and yes, you can find something else to do. if you belong to a gym, an elliptical would work, or a bike. good luck.
