What the frick is wrong with me....

Monday, September 29, 2008

So, I've been up and down on my weight for almost 2 years now. My third son was born October 11, 2006 and it's been a struggle ever since. I've had some health issues with a herniated disc. That is much better now, only hurts once in a while. I just have NO MOTIVATION.
I'm going to start again today (for the 500th time). I'm putting my BodyBugg on, sticking to my planned food, and getting a workout in. I think that's my main problem is I have no energy to workout. But it's a vicious cycle because if I would just workout... I would have TONS of energy. GRRR.

    winnie -

an old chinese or japanese saying is " get knocked down seven times get up 8". you just have to keep trying.

I know I didn't have any energy until it all started to come together. One big change I made was I cut out processed sugar (gradually, of course) and I think that really helped a lot.

Check out Tosca Reno's clean eating plan - it really works!

Good luck with everything

    I know how you feel. And working out is key!
I can remember when I first started working out at 5:45 every morning, some mornings when the alarm clock would go off I just wanted to sleep in. But I would sit myself on the side of my bed and promise myself that if I would just go, I wouldnt have to work out so hard. Just get on the treadmill and walk at a good pace and not worry about all the sweating. And I would go. Then about 15-20 minutes into it, I would be running on the treadmill! So I would sort of trick myself into going. I love the pool and getting in the pool would always be a treat for working out. So, with the pool in the distance, I would jump on the treadmill and start. Then afterwards, in the pool I would smile at myself for getting up and doing it. Boy, was it ever worth it.
You will see. This is a journey, its a hard journey, but it will be well worth it. One day you will look back and say,"I did that!!"
Today is the day!

    You can do this. Nothing is wrong with you. You have 3 kids, just that takes a lot of energy.
I know I am not one to talk as I have been away for a while and gained back alot of weight. ( maybe that is a good example not to follow... emoticon )
But what use to help me, is to come here often. To be always surrounded by people that are losing weight and making the right choice.
We can do it.

4/29 Good day

Tuesday, April 29, 2008

Today has been a good day. I've managed to workout 2x today, getting in 90min of cardio and 30min of strength so far. I still need to do my PT exercises and some core work. I ate really well today and I'm going to try and get closer to 1200cals today. For the last week I've been under 1000/day. The scale told me 138.4 this morning. Yeah. I haven't seen a # that low since before my 2nd son was born 3 1/2 years ago (and had another one since that...18mo ago). I'm finally seeing some progress and it feels great. My belly is looking flatter and my energy level is SO much better. I hope to keep this up to get to my goal weight and stay there.

4/28 Very tired

Monday, April 28, 2008

I don't know what is up today but I am so tired. Maybe my reduced caloric intake I've been doing the last few days is catching up with me. I could barely function today. I managed to do laundry and clean the kitchen and that was about it. I even took a nap when the 2 little guys napped. I hope tomorrow is better.

    Don't give up! It's natural to feel tired and less energetic since you are eating less but they say after a week or so (or maybe even a few days) of eating well and exercising, your energy levels start to catch up and you will feel renewed. Hoping that day comes soon for you, ((hugs))

4/25 Crazy scale

Friday, April 25, 2008

So this morning I get up and get on the scale (like I always do) and once again for the 6th day in a row it says 142.0. I'm like "What the heck!!!" I've had a great deficit everyday and religiously exercising and keeping meticulous count of my calories. It SHOULD have been moving. Well, then this afternoon before I got into the shower I got back onto the scale (like I always do because I am a scale junkie) and it said 140.8! That was 6 hours later and during the day. That doesn't usually happen. I actually got on the scale 2 more times, lol. Same thing 140.8. I'm curious to see what the scale tells me tomorrow after I get up. Which won't be until 4pm because I'm working tonight.


4/22 I ran last night!!!

Tuesday, April 22, 2008

I'm so excited...I actually ran on the treadmill at the Y last night. Granted, it was only a mile and it took me over 10min but I RAN. I haven't been able to run in a few months because of my herniated disc but I think I'm on my way to recovery. I know I need to take it easy so I wont be running today or maybe even tomorrow. I'll do a few less high impact things to do. My BodyBugg inspired me to try and run again because it was reading about 8.2cals/min during my run. That's a good incentive!
